Sheringham Monday 2nd November
I hope you all had a lovely week off and that you are ready to start working really hard again! What an exciting half-term we have lined up; I’m so looking forward to doing the activities with you and learning new information myself. This is a snapshot of what we will be up to in the week ahead:
This week we will be beginning to explore texts with suspense. What is suspense? Watch this short video where Mrs Emery explains what suspense is.
Here’s a link to the Oxford Owl website, explore the ebooks and see if you can find any stories that contain suspense. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/
Here’s a link to a song all about Something Spooky, can you learn the song? Think about the expression you use in your voice.
Write your Cold Task – this week in school we will be writing our cold task, our ‘have a go’ task. Have a go at writing a story at home that contains suspense. You could use one of the pictures below to help you think of some ideas.

Reading – We are unable to take reading books home at present. This makes me very sad as I know how much you like listening to stories. Why not have a listen to this story about “The Cave” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtvlYrTzJus&list=PLE5MZB5pedUMQRHw2etfKDkufdGKDiPsU
