Wonderful Writer of the Week (WB 22.02.21) 

This week's Wonderful Writer of the Week is N'talayah! I was very impressed with her cold task. Her handwriting and presentation were beautiful and I was pleased to see she had structured the letter clearly using paragraphs.

     


Star Scientist (WB 22.02.21) 

This week's Star Scientist is Riley. This is because Riley completed the set science tasks and demonstrated his understanding on this week's live session. He was able to confidently explain what happens to the particles in a liquid when they become a solid. He told the class how the particles inside my container would have become more tightly packed and moved closer together as they froze to create a solid - my ice sculpture!







 
Wednesday 24th February 2021 - Live session 

On the live session today, I set you a challenge for world book day next week. Write a letter to your favourite author. Here are the details if you would like to take part. You can see a letter I wrote to J.K.Rowling when I was your age!
