Happy Thursday everyone! Today's code for SPAG and reading on LBQ is:
Today is a day to finish off your writing, perfect your vocal performance ready for recording and then get it all done. Make sure you practise reading your memories a few times before you record.
Remember - a good vocal performance should be:
- well-articulated (pronounce every word carefully and properly)
- expressive (not read in a monotone)
- well-paced (not read too fast - or too slow!)
Watch today's video from White Rose and then have a go at the questions which go with it. Remember to mark your work at the end.
History - Windrush Day 2020
Yesterday you thought about the question: Were there people of African descent in Britain before the 1940s? I was fascinated to see the pictures of the trumpeter in the court of King Henry VII - and learn about some of the other lives that the people we learned about had.
Today, we will be thinking about the question: Were African-Caribbean men and women living in Britain during the 2nd World War, and why did they sign up to serve in the military?
Have a look at the PowerPoint and work your way through the slides. There is a video to watch, and some information on the BBC website from a newspaper article to read, and some questions to think about.
Once you have read all the information, you need to choose one of the people on the last slide - and find out a bit more about them. You'll need to have a look on the school website to find out about them - click here:
