Good morning Griffins,
We hope you are all well.
Thanks so much for sending more of your great learning in and we have loved seeing some of your acts of kindness.
On Friday 22nd at 2.30pm we will be having a class quiz! I will send out the Zoom user ID and password on the App after school today, remind your parents to look out for it.
If you would like to say something have a short message prepared to read out to the rest of the class at the end of the quiz, no more than 10-15 seconds each.
Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible on Friday.

As you listen to the music today think about something you have found tricky in your learning. Did you become annoyed or frustrated too quickly? It’s ok to feel those feelings, all feelings are there to be felt and acknowledged. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. When things get hard take a huge breath, say to yourself, ‘Is it really worth getting upset about?’ Count to ten slowly in your head and then try again in a different way. Make sure you talk to people when things are hard. Use the music to help practice taking deep breaths and to feel calm before learning.
(Hope you enjoy the song! It’s our brother in law’s recent single!)
Remember you do not have to copy out all of the questions, especially if they use complicated diagrams.
Your answers and any workings out are enough.

Session 21: Story ending.
Before you write anything else, read back through all of your story so far. How does it sound? Will it make the reader want to carry on reading? Does it paint pictures of what is going on in the reader's mind?
If you are happy, carry on and write your ending.
Remember, you need to tie up any loose ends in your story. What is going to happen to your lead character or characters? Are you leaving it as a cliff hanger where another story will need to be written?
Before you start, listen to Charlie Higson and Frank Cottrell-Boyce for some tips on how to end and not to end your story:
No more book to read or listen to today!
