Week 7 Extras

Monday 18th May
Morning all!
So today is International Museums Day  - and whilst we are not able to go and visit any museums at the moment, there are plenty of amazing online versions and virtual tours that we can take from the comfort of our own homes. Click on the link below for some really good examples for kids:
However, there is a museum out there for pretty much EVERYTHING. Think of something you're interested in, and you can bet there's a museum somewhere that specialises in that thing. 
Like fashion? Visit The Fashion Museum
Like skateboards? Visit The Skateboard Museum
Like poo? Visit The Poo Museum
Eeeeuuuwww... sorry about that. True though! 
So, have a visit to a museum today. See what you can find out. 
You could also have a go at planning your own museum. What are you a bit of a specialist in? Is it Lego, or tanks, or pizzas? Anything you want. See the planning sheet below. If you haven't got a printer, just copy it into your home learning book. Remember to send me a copy so I can put it up on display. 
Bye for now

Hi All

Liam, Amelia L, Rubie, Gracie, Olly, Xanthe, Sully, Jacob, Daisy, Louie, George M, Matilda P, George R, Harrison and Ellie have all started building up their earnings.
Liam (No 6), Xanthe (No 11) and Gracie (No 17) are all in the top 20 in the WHOLE SCHOOL for lifetime earnings. They have showed some dedication!!! 
And Liam is currently sitting in 4th place for speed out of the entire school. Well done Liam!!! Or should I say 'Win Lightspeed'
2 more quick chapters of our class story book up and ready for you to listen too. You'll definitely have to be using your imaginations to picture some very freakishly large animals in the next chapter we're on. 
Bye for now

Miniature Book Challenge
I have a new challenge for you this week. As I was browsing online, I came across a great project from the British Library that is going to combine our researching, writing and design and technology skills. It's called MINIATURE BOOKS and you can find out all about it here: https://www.bl.uk/childrens-books/activities/make-a-miniature-book
You won't need much to make the book; just pencils, paper, an elastic band, and of course your wonderful imaginations. It can be fact or fiction (I have an idea for a non-fiction book myself) but what it does have to be is MINI! 
Below is a video of Jaqueline Wilson's miniature book. You can see more authors showing you their mini books here: https://www.bl.uk/childrens-books/activities/miniature-books-by-your-favourite-authors
There is no rush with this challenge, take your time to think about it and plan it out. You might want to try making a book first to see what kind of size it's going to be. All the instruction are on the above link. 
I'm really looking forward to getting to work on mine, it will need some researching so that I get things correct. 
If you have any questions, as always, get in touch.
