Welcome to week 2 of home learning. I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend! Remember to just complete what you can. We want your home school life to be a happy experience.
Starter: This week we will be looking at suffixes. Watch a video to find out what a suffix is.
So by watching the video you have learnt that a suffix is a group of words that are added to the root word to change the meaning of the word. For example: music + ian = musician , adding + tion= addition, protect + tion = protection.
Complete the activity on suffixes.
Add a suffix: tion / sion/ cian onto each incomplete word to make a complete word.

Main : This week we will be learning to describe settings. I have attached an adjectives mat to help you. I have also attached a checklist which will support you with your writing structure.
Main: Open up the document “Recognising features of imaginary settings”. Have a look at all the different features that are included in a description of a setting. Read the example of an imaginary setting. Remember to use the colour code to help you as you are reading through it.
These are the 6 features that were used in the description. We are going to use these to support us to write a description about the Forbidden Forest , from the Harry potter films.
Before we write our description, we will have to write down some notes to describe our setting. I have attached an example with answers for each part.

What is togetherness? What does it mean? Why is it a Broomwood core value?
Togetherness is something that can only be achieved when you work together as a group. Can you think of 5 examples of where togetherness would happen?
A good example to base togetherness on is Broomwood Primary School. During the covid 19 pandemic, all staff from Broomwood Primary School have had a job to complete, so that the school, lessons and websites all work well. If a few people don't do their job well, it lets the rest of the team down. Togetherness breaks down! If Mrs Owen worked on her own? No – she needs to work together with teachers, teaching assistants, cleaners, caretakers, lunchtime staff, office staff.
Would MCFC or MUFC be able to win a match with just one great player? Should the goalkeeper get the ball and dribble it all the way across the pitch and then try to shoot a goal? Why not? Why does a football team need togetherness?
Why is togetherness so important at home? Or in the classroom? Or in the community?
Listen to the story " Supertato Veggies assemble"
How did the team work together? What did they achieve?
Now get a piece of A4 paper.
Split it into 4 areas. Label each area with a togetherness scenario . For example you could have : At home, football, school and family.
Now draw an example and write a sentence for each box.
Listen to Mrs Stephani read some of the story “ The Giraffe, and Pelly and Me”, by Roald Dahl.
