    Mrs Mirza since I haven’t been in I didn’t get a change to plan out my story and I also don’t know the structure though I’m trying my best

    • Mrs Mirza Posted 20th March 2020 9:33 am

      Hi Zahra
      Not to worry because nobody did. Thank you for trying your best. Just to help you, the text has been put onto the website today, that should help with the structure and planning. Enjoy your writing and remember to include the stage five features mentioned. Enjoy.
      Mrs Mirza

        Mrs Mirza Do you think the Writing Challenge Competition would be cancelled?

        • Mrs Mirza Posted 20th March 2020 9:46 am

          Hi Aayaan
          I am hoping it will be extended. So I suggest you still enter and keep it safe then bring it back to school, when we return. I will know more then.

    If we did every think can we do maths

    • Mrs Mirza Posted 20th March 2020 9:40 am

      Hello Maryam
      Why don’t you have a good go at writing a story based on ‘The magic paintbrush’ and include the excellent skills you have been taught by Miss Miah and Miss Khatun. I would like you to read and you can choose a new book from the Purple Mash site. There are some good comprehensions you can access. Enjoy.
      Mrs Mirza

  • Aayaan Posted 20th March 2020 9:32 am

    Even I have forgotten the structure so I’m not sure about what to right and what the order is

  • Aayaan Posted 20th March 2020 9:36 am

    Miss when we sign up for serial Mash do we put our name or our parents?

    • Mrs Mirza Posted 20th March 2020 9:44 am

      Hi Aayaan
      You can put your name. In answer to your other question about the text. The LVS text has been added on our class page. You can use that to structure your writing, but remember try not to ‘hug’ the text! Enjoy.

  • Cath (Inaayah’s mum) Posted 22nd March 2020 9:28 pm

    Miss Lea:

    Really like the idea of a piece of work set per day. It really helps to focus on one particular thing at home, and not be too onerous that it takes all day. Thanks for this.
    Will there be tasks set of Mathletics? Find that really useful also.

    • Miss Lea Posted 23rd March 2020 8:59 am

      Good morning,

      Mathletics may be set as part of the daily tasks but you are more than welcome to complete some activities alongside what we set.

      Miss Lea

    • Mrs Mirza Posted 25th March 2020 10:07 am

      • Mrs Mirza Posted 25th March 2020 10:10 am

        I have just taken a look there seems to be a problem that they are sorting. Hopefully it will be fixed soon.
