Cromer Class, Monday 6th July, 2020

Monday’s Blog

Good Morning Cromer Class,

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Let me know what you got up to.

Answers to Friday’s Spot The Difference:

How did you get on?

Here’s this week’s Home Learning Grid: HLG



Echo and performance read “In the City of Silences”. Here is the poem: In the City of Silences

What patterns do you notice?

Look at the way in which the first line linked to the second. For instance, you would get a surprise and a shock if an alley was full of electric eels!

There is a link in each couplet (pair of lines). Find and explain the links?

Please email me your work – I look forward to seeing it.



We can borrow aspects from both poems we have been looking at as a basis for writing. Here is an example-

On the mountain summit of majesty,
 I hunted for my surroundings,
 frozen rocks danced in the glimpse of a perilous peak

and a forgotten galleon surfaced as clear as an eyes coating.

Also, you’ve got some sentences to extend: Sentences to expand

Please email me your work – I look forward to seeing it.



Using your phrases from last week, where you joined a place and an abstract noun, try to write some sentences like the ones you worked on yesterday.

Take your idea and extend it using alliteration, similes, metaphor or personification. Try to come up with surprising combinations.

Reminder of terms:

Alliteration: Alliteration is when words start with the same sound:

  • For example, Sammy the slippery snake came sliding. The mighty mice marched up the mountain.
  • Similes: Compares two or more things, usually using the words ‘like’ or ‘as’. For example, The water was as hot as lava. He was as scared as a mouse.
  • Metaphor: Compares different things by saying one thing is another. For example, The snow is a white blanket. He is a shining star.
  • Personification: is when you give an animal or object qualities or abilities that only a human can have. For example, Lightning danced across the sky. The wind howled in the night.


Please email me your work – I look forward to seeing it.



Spelling: Spelling Quiz 4. Spelling Quiz 4 You will need to get someone to read the spellings to you from the answer sheet. Write the word in the gap in the sentence. When you have finished, check your spelling.

Please email me your work – I look forward to seeing it.

Bonus Mathematics:




We are carrying on with pirates in our crime and punishment topic, this week we are looking at whether pirates still exist today.

Actually, there are still pirates today. However, they simply don’t look the same as they used to. Modern-day pirates come from all over the world, scouring the waters of the Indian Ocean, the Red Sea and the coasts of Africa.

You will be Writing an information text about modern-day pirates using the information below. You can include pictures.  You either write this or do it on the computer and email it to me.

There is a lot of information on the Home Learning Grid.

Here are some useful websites:



We are carrying with our work about endangered animals.

The slides we are working on this week are on:

If your animal was no longer in its habitat how would it affect the habitat and the other animals that live in it? Think about food chains. This is useful website: This has videos about food chains: and


Always please remember to make notes and then write in your own words as much as possible. Do not just copy and paste if you are using the internet.

Please share your work with me so far – I really look forward to seeing it.



We’re still working on optical illusions.

For this week’s art work you will need to follow the diagrams to make an optical illusion.

If you prefer, you could use 2 colours instead of black and white.

Here’s a picture of a finished one:

It looks really impressive, doesn’t it?

Please send me your drawings, I can’t wait to see them.


Education City

This week you more have assessments to do.  I will be able to see how you score.  Education City will then create a revision guide for you!

Play lives are still there if you want to keep playing them too.


Keeping Yourself Physically Active:

The Home Learning Grid has some great ideas for you, but if you fancy something different try, somethings from here:

They have both indoor and outdoor activities to chose from.

Alternatively give this a go:

Get your body moving! Play a song for a few minutes, to shake off the tension and have a dance. Tip: Use this time to practice your funniest family dance!

Enjoy and have fun!


Keeping Yourself Mentally Active:

Again, the Home Learning Grid has some great ideas, but if you fancy something else or something extra, give some of these a go:

Three Good Things Write down ‘three good things’ that have happened this week. For each thing, think about how it made you feel and why. These could be anything from – I’ve worn my favourite slippers all week to I baked a great cake.

Learn a new language… Or at least 5 words! Decide on a language for the day and learn the words for hello, thank you, and any others you want to know.

Try this quarantine quiz:


Please don’t forget to send me photos for Pet Wednesday – I didn’t get any last week.  Remember, if you don’t have any pets you can always take photos of wildlife.

Get Busy! Stay Safe!
