Always Learning and Achieving Together

Week beginning 4.5.20

Dear Dahl Class, 


Hope you are all well. The Purple Mash 2Dos have been brilliant. Well done to everyone who had a go. Last week I asked you to find some minibeasts outside. I saw a huge worm in my garden, I think it likes lots of rain!

Remember to check Purple Mash for some more 2Dos. 

Please do not feel that you have to complete all of these activities. I have tried to put a range of things so there is something for everyone to do to keep busy!

Keep using BBC Bitesize resources



This week I would like you to find out about VE day which our country is celebrating next Friday 8th May. 

Can you decorate a front window to celebrate VE day? You could make flags or bunting to hang up. 

You could also design a medal for VE day (See link below) 



1. Read the text about VE day and answer the questions. You can write the questions in your book. There are 3 levels to choose from so ask a grown up to help you choose the right level. (See link below)

2. Write a diary for someone celebrating VE day with a street party (See link below). 

3. Spell words with -el. Learn the words and ask a grown up to test you. Use the Spelling booklet link for ideas about how to practise your spellings. Make sure you know the meaning of these words. (See link below)
