Good Morning Rabbits – pinch, punch, first of the month! Happy May Morning to you. There is a tradition in Oxford for the choir to sing on the top of Magdelane chapel on May Morning but they can’t do it this year – perhaps you would start your day with a lovely song to get you in the mood for learning? Here is a link to the choir if you are interested in hearing them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7a-sD2PA8w
English: More fun on the BBC Bitesize for you this morning. www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/homelearning.
Maths: Please access either MyMaths today for a few exercises on division, or you can follow the WhiteRose Maths (www.whiterosemaths.homelearninghub.) I have also set some on-line games for you if you get bored and it is raining – they are on Education City.
Reading: I have another reading and comprehension task for you to do. Please access this link to do the worksheet. It is all about Captain Moore – who is now Colonel Moore. There are three levels of the work sheets – I suggest you have a go at the middle one if you are year 2 and the third one if you are year 3. Captain Moore Comprehension
Handwriting: As extra practice, could you write a thank you note to Colonel Moore – you can say whatever you wish but it should be polite, quite short and should be addressed to him as Colonel Moore and you should sign your name.
Project: The work that you are doing is wonderful – today is the last day of the Shropshire Project and I have some investigation work for you to be doing. I have put a link to some Shropshire Words – these are unusual words that are only found in our county – I would like you to create a dictionary with the words and their meanings – you could add pictures if it helps. When you have done that – put all of your work together with the map, flowers, cartoon and animals and make yourself a Shropshire Brochure. You can even add some of the other place names to your map if you wish.

- Bostin’ – Great, wonderful, fantastic.
- I’m gooin’ – I’m going.
