Young people are blessed with the gift of uninhibited imagination – something we want to encourage, daily. Each day, we will post an image of the day. You can use this however you wish; a free write, inspiration for a sketch… whatever you can think of. If you click on the link, it will take you the the origin website, that contains questions and challenges that may prompt you.
What better time to start a new topic than when we have all the time in the work to reflect on it? That is why we have decided to keep with current events. We would like you to research into a different person who has either faced adversity, stood for something, or had an injustice to them.
Today can you research into:
What are they known for? What struggle did they try to overcome?
You can present your information in any way you would like, be creative and don’t forget to submit.
You could create a factfile, write a biography, make a slide show, make a comic strip, create a poster, draw or make some art to reflect on the person of the day – the possibilities are endless. Just ensure that you understand why the individual is/was important to our history.
When Florence Nightingale went to the Crimea to serve in hospitals, nurses were given little respect or priority. However, she helped to change attitudes to the nursing profession and implement new practices which helped to improve mortality survival rates.
Your task today is to develop simple sentences. The simple sentences will be based around ‘The Perfect World’ stimulus that we were looking at last week. You need to think about the impact of the subject of the simple sentence and expand on it – showing how it will make the world a better place. Here is an example of what I mean:
Simple sentence –
People shouldn’t discriminate.
Expanded sentence –
People shouldn’t discriminate against others for any reason at all as it just creates divides; there is no credible excuse for it. If people didn’t discriminate, the world would be a more harmonious place.
Try to use some of the vocabulary that you learnt last week. The simple sentences that I want you to develop are as follows:
- People should celebrate their differences.
- We shouldn’t judge people on appearance.
- A world without evil would be great.
- We need bad things.
- We all should have equal opportunities.
- Injustice is detrimental to the world.
If there are any words in these sentences that you don’t understand, look them up or ask someone to help you find out.

Good Morning Year 5! As you all know Mr Sowden and I have linked the English & Guided Reading together. Over the course of the past week and this week, I will working on poetry, lyrics and letters in our reading lessons in order to enhance your vocabulary, and get you to truly understand the message you will be sending out to the work next Friday. After reading the letter today, you should hopefully be more familiar with how vital language can be in getting your voice heard. NOTE: I have shortened the letter down for you.
Marcus Rashford has called on the government to reconsider its decision not to extend the current food voucher scheme into the summer holidays. The scheme was set up to effectively guarantee meals to those children who would have ordinarily been reliant on free school meals during the coronavirus lockdown. He was successful.
TASK: For today’s task I would like you to read the letter attached:
1. Write down/copy over the 5 sentences in his letter which have impact, and explain why.
2. Look at his vocabulary, find me 5 words that stand out to you, and explain the impact of them.
For example: ‘without the kindness and generosity of the community’ this has impact as it gets the audience to reflect on how vital community is when bringing up the next generation.
Neptune: if you struggle today, you could find out meanings of unfamiliar words instead.
