  Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great Easter and didn't eat too much chocolate!

Seesaw

Class 4 are now on 'Seesaw'. Class 6 have also been using this platform since the school has closed.  Seesaw is a secure, online platform that allows children to share their work and lets teachers support and comment on children's work. I have set up the whole class on the platform already, just email me to receive your login information and instructions.

English

This half term in English, we will be working on 'The King of the Fishes'. This is a writing unit from the amazing Pie Corbett.

The story we are going to look at is ‘The King of the Fishes’. ‘The King of the Fishes ’ is a wishing tale. A wish is a magical request for something that you want. This traditional story has been passed around the world by many people which means that there are many different versions of the story out there. Our story is Pie Corbett’s version.


You can also listen to a recording of the story here:
