Reciprocal Reading


Today I would like you to design a book review of our story that we have now, sadly completed. 


You will need to include answers to the following questions : 

  • Who was your favourite character? Why? 
  • What was your favourite part of the story? Why?
  • Would you recommend the book to anyone? Why? 
  • What would you rate the book out of 5 stars? Why? 


Below is a template that you may use or copy onto a piece of paper.



Today, as your big write,  you are going to write the end of the story ‘The Legend of Captain Crow’s Teeth'.


Your focus will be on what you think Marty will say about his tooth getting broken and how he will tell mum and dad, or what he will tell them happened. Then, what might happen to finish this story off? Will it be a happy ending for the family? Will Marty and his brother, Will, finally decide to stick together or will they continue to tease and make fun of eachother? You decide.  


Remember, you will need to include some speech but this should not be the whole ending, it may be included in a few sentences here and there. You must also write sentences that tell the reader what characters are doing and what is happening in the story. 


Writing skills to include: 

  • Cursive handwriting
  • Correct punctuation - speech marks, capital letters, full stops, finger spaces, question marks, exclamation mark and commas.
  • Check it makes sense! Reread, edit and improve.
  • Interesting and powerful words - adjectives, expanded noun phrases and verbs/adverbs.
  • You may use adverbs/fronted adverbials to tell the reader how, where or when an action happened.



Today, I would like you to have a go on TimesTableRockstars. Log into your account and hit ‘Play’. I have individually set you all the times tables you need to practise. This is just to help you keep up with practising your times tables and improve your speed and fluency with mental maths.


I will have a look later at how your scores have improved and how many coins you have earnt. 


Have fun Rockstars!



Why do Muslims visit Makkah? 


This week in RE, we are continuing with our learning about pilgrimage and special journeys. We have already learnt about Hindu’s and pilgrims they take. This week, it is all about Muslims and why they visit Makkah. 


I would like you to do some research on Muslims and their pilgrimage. To get you started there are a few clips you might find useful. 

Watch this video to find out what the Hajj pilgrimage is:
Below is a video about Hajj - day one and day two: 


When you have researched pilgrimages I would like you to think about why many people go to Makkah.  Here are some comments from pilgrims:

  • “In fact, when I came back, I didn’t want to hate again, only to love.” 
  • “It made me much more devoted to Allah, and more delighted to be a Muslim. I found peace at Makkah.” 
  • “I never experienced any emotion like this before or since, I was completely overwhelmed by the wish to serve God.” 
  • To me, the Hajj was wonderful because of the brotherhood and sisterhood it showed, all Muslims as one.” 
  • “When I pray now, I am remembering, not just thinking.” 


Choose three of these comments below that are from Muslims and explain how the Hajj makes a difference to life using them.
