This would be your last week in school!
So we would have had lots of lovely things planned for you, but we would still be doing some work as well.
In Literacy this week, we want you to write your own pirate adventure!
Take your time, work on it for 20 minutes a day. Remember: Full stops, capital letters, keeping your writing neat and carrying on from last week where you were being literacy Superheroes add some question marks.
Start with a beginning of your story, introduce your pirate, what does he/she look like? What are they wearing? What is their ship/galleon called? Then the middle where are they going on their adventure? Who is their crew? Which ocean are they sailing in (this is part of your geography) Which island do they land on? Maybe you could make up your own island. Then the ending did they find the map, how did they get to the treasure? What was the treasure?
We would love to see some of your stories on the Facebook page, but remember it needs to be neat and tidy!
In Maths this week, we would be going over some of the things we have been doing all year.
So go onto Top Marks on your computer or ipad and go on: Hit the button, there are lots of different games number bonds, doubles, halves, times tables. Then have a look at The Mental Maths train, there are lots of different games here too. So lots for you to do over the week.
In Guided Reading 1
There are 3 different reading activities about elephants, have a go at all of them. There are lots of interesting facts about elephants.
So lots and lots for you to do this week.
We would also like you to think about school in September going into Year 2, how does this make you feel? What do you think you will be doing? Can you draw a picture of yourself as a Year 2 child, and write some adjectives (describing words) to say how you will feel?
Enjoy and we will see you all very soon xxxxx

Maths tasks - Monday 20th April
Hello Pirates and Gruffalo's.
This week in maths we would like to focus on money. Can you remember the value for all the coins you might find in a purse?
Maybe you could make your own tuck shop to buy snacks. You might want to go to the shop with 20p and see if you can work out how much change you will need to be given. You might want to buy two items and work out how much they cost together. Play shop and have fun. Maybe you could make a shop and put price labels on your toys.
Another idea is shown in the photo below. Can you make the amount shown in each muffin tin?
Look above for the PDF link if you would like to print this out.
Maths Activity Mats
Here are some maths activities for you to have a go at.

Be a Scientist!
Don't forget to check out the Science page (in Class Pages)
There's a weekly quiz and some fun challenges too.
Baking is a really fun thing to do as a family. This week I'm going to make some banana bread as it's a great way to use up any over ripe bananas you have. It's also a great excuse to eat cake for breakfast. I usually have these ingredients in my cupboard.
I'll let you know how I get on xx
250g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
150g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
About 4 small bananas peeled.
1. Preheat the oven to 170C/150C fan
2. Grease and line a loaf tin (you could use any cake tin for this)
3. Sift the flour and baking powder into a large bowl. Add the caster sugar and butter and, using your fingertips, rub it in until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.
4. Whisk the eggs and vanilla then add the bananas and mash with a potato masher.
5. Pour the banana mixture into the dry ingredients and mix together, then pour into the tin.
6. Bake in the oven for about an hour or until a skewer comes out clean.
7. Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from the tin.
Practice counting in 2's, 5's and 10's (I know you're all really good at this so blow your parents socks off )
Which numbers are odd, which are even?
Do you know what is one more and one less than a number to 100?
Use your hundred square to help you.
