WEEK BEGINNING 30TH MARCH 2020:

Hello everyone :) 


See below your tasks for the next week. I have put tasks under each day, but of course, you can be flexible with this. Remember, I will still be checking all the online websites (Spelling Shed, TTRockstars, Read Theory, Prodigy, Sumdog and Reading Eggs) and announcing the winners next weekend!

2 . In 100 words or less, summarise what has happened in 'Beetle Boy' so far. Talk about Darkus, Virginia, Bertolt, Barty (his dad), Pickering, Humphrey, Uncle Max, Novak Cutter and Lucretia Cutter.
3. Using any materials you like, make a rainbow to stick in your window. This could be with felt tips, paint, as a collage etc. Have a look at the news article to see why:  https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-51988671

Watch these videos on Autism:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JdCY-cdgkI&app=desktop  and  https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/15655232 . Think of 3 things that you have learnt from the videos and 5 things we could do to help people with Autism.
