Read Amelia’s fantastic beach story set in the Victorian times. Great expanded noun phrases to describe, connectives to extend your sentences and different sentence starters – well done Amelia! I love the secret mermaid.

Thursday 11th June

Omar did his own research about Queen Victoria and the things she did to make Britain a better place. Well done for the excellent presentation, handwriting and drawings Omar!

Tamzid has been writing about his daily routine. It is great to see him starting sentences with time connectives (then, sometimes, in the evening) and using ‘and’ to extend his sentences. Good work on your handwriting Tamzid.

Amelia has been busy making a timeline of some of the important things that happened during the Victorian times. She has also compared seaside holidays then and now.

I love the way Amelia has used a storyboard and drawings to help her plan her story!

Aaishah has decided to do a timeline of historical events she has studied.

I like the way Aaishah is using her spelling practice as an opportunity to use her best handwriting. Your handwriting has really improved Aaishah – well done.

Zeeshan has written a fantastic story about a day at the seaside. I love the way he has planned each section of the story first using bullet points. Well done for using an exclamation to add excitement. This sentence is fantastic, Zeeshan used the conjunction ‘with’ to add more detail:

‘Jack made a tiny sandcastle with seashells, rocks and sea weed.’

Raihan has also written an excellent story with adjectives to describe, feelings, exclamations and adverbs (suddenly, sadly, finally) and what a great ending!


Raihan and Zeeshan also compared seaside holidays then and now to help them with their writing.

Here is Raihan’s response to the P4C question. Do you agree with him? Zeeshan has also responded on the P4C blog page. Read his response and type your own underneath.

Read Raihan’s poster to learn how to be smart on the internet.

Raihan has written a great diary entry as a child in Victorian times. Raihan has used connectives such as but, because and and and he has also included feelings.


Have a look at the different items that Raihan chose to measure at home. Well done for estimating the length of the slinky correctly!

Zeeshan has also carefully considered his answers to this week’s P4C question which you can find here.

Aiyla and Amaya had a team work themed day. This is what they made together.

Zeeshan has written a wonderful recount of what Bob was doing on the moon from the perspective of a cheeky alien who even snuck onto Bob’ spaceship! He included the alien’s thoughts and feelings about Bob and I liked how he used the adverb ‘quickly’ to add excitement, and the time connective ‘after’ to start his sentences in different ways. Weel done Zeeshan!

Raihan and Zeeshan have been answering the philosophy questions about friendship.


Wednesday 19th May 2020

Aaishah has written a fantastic diary entry as the Man on the Moon. She has included his feelings and lots of expanded noun phrases and remembered to include the commas between the adjectives.

Ceylin has been out doing some planting with her family and got distracted and fascinated by all the snails she could find! What different mini-beasts can you find in the park, your garden or your balcony?

Zeeshan has been doing his science learning using these online lessons. He has written a fact file of everything he has learnt, including diagrams.
