Hello Fabulous Swift Class!
I have provided some learning activities for you to complete at home. Keep checking the website for new messages and learning activities from me.
I challenge you today to teach you family our positive class chant with actions. Today I picked the word fabulous….
I am fabulous, you are fabulous, we are fabulous!
Can you pick a different adjective each day for the chant and do it before your school work?
I hope you are all safe and well.
From Miss Harvey 😊
English – Reading
Please read every day. This could be your reading book, an e book (oxford owl) or another story you enjoy at home. I challenge you to do some ‘extreme reading’ you need to pick a fun place where you can comfortably read for 15 minutes – take a picture and we will look at them all when we come back to school. I’m already trying to think of somewhere good hmm……

Let’s recap some spelling we have already learnt in class this year. Today we will look at the suffix -ly. badly, softly, loudly, kindly, bravely, happily, easily
When a word ends in y we swap the y for an i before adding ly

Our topic this half term has all been centred around the Great Fire of London. We have talked about how life in London was very different in 1666 to life today. We have looked at firefighting then and now plus talked about how communication back then was different – letter writing, no phones, no tv or radio.
Watch Horrible histories Great fire of London video to remind yourself how the fire started. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43xisrBPS8M
You are now the Town Cryer in London and you need to tell the people there is a fire. Can you write a speech? See attached activity sheets.
A town crier is a person who is employed by a town council to make public announcements in the streets. Criers often dress elaborately, a tradition known from the 18th century, in a red and gold robe, white breeches, black boots and a tricorne hat.
They carry a handbell to make a loud noise and they shout the words “Oyez, Oyez, Oyez!” before making their announcements. The word “Oyez” means “hear ye,” which is a call for silence and attention. Oyez is from an Anglo-Norman word for listen.
