Today, we are going to finally get creative and use our own ideas. This pack I have given is from a programme called 'Talk for Writing', if you have enjoyed learning English this way, please let me know and I can plan some more.
You are going to have a go at re-writing sections of our story today; changing the problem and the setting. I would like you to work through page 17-20. This might take you a little longer than previous lessons, and it's a bit more writing than you have been used to in previous weeks. Take breaks if you need to, but remember, it's important for us to keep our writing stamina up more than ever. Remember to concentrate on your presentation, try to show off and impress me with your work.
You will be in Year 6 in September, and we all need to shoot for the moon- even if we miss we will land among the stars! So give this 100% and I will be SUPER proud of you wonderful kids.
Today we will be looking at understanding thousandths. Wow- say that enough and 'thousandths' doesn't even seem like a real word anymore! So impressed with all of your hard work and perseverance. You truly are the most super of stars. I couldn't be more proud or miss you anymore than I do. Drop me an email if you're in a pickle. Good Luck.

Sometimes, especially when we are going through something tough, we can think how terrible our lives are and get in a terrible slump. Remember what Dr. Seuss says, 'Unslumping yourself is not easily done.'
Did you feel grateful when watching the video below? I did. I felt very lucky we are safe and with our families, and we live in a country where we have medical care when we need it.
Did it make you feel sad for the people whose lives were not as good? Do you think this is fair?
I would like you to imagine that you are in charge of the world. How would you make it better? What would you like the world to look like in 50 years time?
You can do a drawing, make a video, write, paint- whatever you like. I'd love to see your ideas. Get creative and think about how you can make a positive difference in the world.
