This week's learning

I have set some more writing tasks for this week, as well as a new handwriting activity. I would still love to see some of these tasks sent to me at year5@stgps.org.uk.

Monday Activity - Question time!

What mood do you think the magician is in?

Wednesday Activity - Sentence challenge!

E.G. The magician, who had incredible powers, strode confidently across the marble floor.

It must supply an extra bit of information to the sentence.

Commas should surround the clause.

The slightest idea would burst magnificently into life at the slightest twitch. If he imagined fire, flames would appear. If he imagined happiness, people around him would smile. If he imagined pain…

He had learnt to control his mind over the years, manipulating his incredible powers to serve whatever purpose. Today, though, he was angry. If he imagined anger, chaos would ensue…
