A message to 6BA from Mrs Smith
Reading is so important, and we would like you to all continue with this while you are not at school, so that you can continue to progress but most of all enjoy the wonders of finding new knowledge or immersing yourself in another world. Reading can offer so many different things.
I have thoroughly enjoyed coming into your classes each Thursday morning. Having a chat about reading and seeing all your wonderful progress. We are still unsure when school will be able to reopen but I hope that you are still reading at home. Please continue to read books of your choice and get an adult to record this in your Home Reading Record, when you have reached any of the milestones, 50, 100 , 150 reads then get an adult to email your teacher who will be able to send you a certificate to reward your achievement until we are back at school when you will be awarded your prize. I am extremely proud of all your achievements in reading this academic year and I don't want a pandemic to dent this.
If you are continuing to work on your Reading Challenge that is brilliant. If you haven't done this and would like another copy of it then email your teacher and we can get one sent to you to work on. Dudley Library Service is offering a free click and collect service so you can order all the books that you need for the Reading Challenge from them.
I will be asking your teachers how everyone is getting on. Happy Reading!

Happy March! How lovely it is to be enjoying some warmer weather, playing outside without a coat and seeing flowers start to grow in the garden! We hope you all had a great weekend and are ready for the last week of remote learning! We can't wait to see you all in school next week!
This week, we will be posting lots of things about World Book Day 2021, so keep your eyes peeled! We are looking forward to seeing all your fantastic work.
Have a good week.

Can I use the apostrophe accurately?
Can I improve my stamina and strength?

In this lesson we read part of the climax and consider how the scene and atmosphere changes as the story progresses. We reflect upon our previous predictions and the genre of this text.
