Rationing work from this week!
Timetable for week beginning February 1st
After the start of WW2, nothing happened for a few months. For this reason, it was called the Phoney War. Some evacuees headed home. Sadly, when this evacuee went home, she found her home destroyed by a bomb. Here she is in the rubble of her home, smiling because her family is safe.

Do you want to collect class dojos for reading at home?
Read then ask someone to sign your reading diary and let me know - or send a photo and I will add dojos! Please let me know if you need new reading books and I will try to sort some out for you to collect from school.
Remember the Adrift work you did this week? Look what Freya did with this!

Dear Griffins children,
I hope yesterday went well and that you found something to be grateful for. Spend a few minutes later today thinking about what has made you happy today - it is worth noticing even the small things.
There are not many children in school: yesterday, I think there were five though today there should be more.
I know it is strange being at home to do school work but we need to keep going with that so that you carry on getting better and better in your ability to learn and the standards you achieve. Some people's parents sent emails yesterday with your work attached. These were lovely, thank you so much! I have awarded various numbers of dojos to each person and emailed back to explain how many. I won't be able to do this everyday but enjoyed it yesterday. I received work from 16 of you yesterday which was fabulous, but let's see if we can make it more today! Look below the slide show to see Flo's great writing. I am hoping Fergus, whose work was also marvellous, will put his all onto one page for us to put on here too - but that might come as a surprise to him as I haven't told him that!
Deadline for work to be emailed to me by today is 6pm.
Thank you. I hope you have a lovely day.
Love Mrs Morris

Dear Griffins children,
I am sorry we aren't able to be in school together today but maybe we should remember how lucky we were to have a lovely day together yesterday. I am going to put a bit of work on here for you to do today but this is a one-off day for this type of work and hopefully tomorrow will be different.
Have a happy day at home and remember to be kind.
Love Mrs Morris

Loving this paragraph by Flo:
She was dragged across the rainforest floor while she was wailing and screaming as the barbed vine tightened its grip around her ankle. The spaceship got further and further away and Dr Bigby got deeper and deeper into the rainforest. This was not good. She must have passed out because the next thing she knew was that she was abandoned in the middle of nowhere with red blood dripping down her ankle and into her shoes.
Look how well she used:
- a variety of sentence lengths
- repetition for dramatic intensity
- a dictionary
- her imagination to make it exciting
Well done Flo!
Look at this beautiful writing by Fergus:
The first thing Gwen knew was that she was surrounded by four angry Ewok’s with spears as sharp as knives. She immediately tried to reach for her phone that was on the floor in front of her but the Ewok’s were ready. The third Ewok dived for her phone and stabbed it multiple times with his spear. Now, she had no signal back home, she had to get out of there. The Ewok’s were closing in on their prey.
I really like his use of:
- passive voice: surrounded by
- a simile: as sharp as knives.
Great work Ferg!
