Art

You could make your own transport from your design that you did yesterday or there is some inspiration below… (or you could do both!)

This term you have had the opportunity to make spaceships with Beegu, make boat art when we learnt about Windrush, we’ve made and/or drawn buses, aeroplanes and planes…so that is a lot of different types of transport! Here are some types of transport we haven’t made so far. If you don’t use them today you could keep them as activities for the holidays! πŸ™‚

Remember to use what you have to hand, you don’t always have to use exactly what is in the picture – get creative!

Do you know what all those types of transport are?

Greetings Platypuses,

It’s the final Monday of term! My, my!

Over the course of this last week try to finish up anything you haven’t completed like coding on code.org and the work on Google Classroom. Google Classroom will continue to be used in some capacity next year so it would be great practise to use it now.

English

Well done for all your great Beegu work over the last two weeks. Mr Fielder and I have really enjoyed reading it and have been very impressed by how much effort you put into your work and what super progress you have made.

For our final week we are back to BBC Bitesize, which today is focusing on story writing. What a great follow-up to the work we have been doing!

In you blue books or on paper draw a design for your own form of transport in the future. Think about what you don’t like about how you travel at the moment, what could be made better? Please take a picture of your designs and send them in to the year 1 email address – we would love to see your ideas.

Well done to everyone who wrote a Beegu story of their own yesterday.

Now it is time to write a book review of the original Beegu.

When we write book reviews we say what we liked (or didn’t like) about a book and give the book a rating this could be using stars or as a mark out of 10.

Here are two different book review formats. If you would like them emailed please let me know.

I’m looking forward to reading them!

World of Beegu Wednesday – 08/07/20

Greetings Platypuses,

Quick reminders…

The deadline is getting very close for this one!

English

Time to write your own story about Beegu! To do this you have to start by planning your story. Today we will be planning your stories. Below are our story mapping boxes that help us to plan super stories.

Please let me know if you would like this emailed.

Before you start you could also create a word bank of adjectives you would like to use based on the ones you have thought of in your earlier work.

You could also create a word bank of action words (verbs). Think of what Beegu might be doing. Here is an example but remember Beegu won’t necessarily be doing the same things!

I look forward to reading your story plans!
