Rhino Home Learning – The final ‘Free up Friday’ 5.3.21

Good Morning,

Well, we’ve done it! We have made it to the end of the school lockdown period.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your commitment and your engagement over the last 8 weeks of home schooling. You have just been brilliant. Hearing from you and seeing your work on a daily basis has been so rewarding and I am immensely proud of how hard you have worked.

I would also like to thank your parents. They have been absolutely amazing in the level of support they have given you during this time and I am truly grateful for all their support.

As I always say, ‘Teamwork makes the dream work!’ The last 8 weeks have been a perfect example of this. Well done everyone!

Can’t wait to see you all on Monday…

Rhino Home Learning – Thursday 4.3.21

It’s World Book Day, so today is going to be off our normal timetable so we can all have a bit of fun…. I really hope you have a great day.

Thank you to all of you that sent in your video and your clues. I’ve put a short video together for you to watch, so listen and watch very carefully. It’s not easy to guess, as you have all disguised your voices so well and your masks are brilliant.

I have also put together an answer sheet containing a picture of each masked reader and 3 clues linked to their true identity. Can you guess who each masked reader is?

The Masked Reader Clue Sheet

I will be hosting a zoom on Friday afternoon (1.15pm) to reveal who each masked reader is. For the meeting, have your masks ready to share so you can all reveal who you were. Have your guess sheet handy as well to see how many masked readers you got correct.

Today’s Task:

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to David Walliams talk about his book during the live assembly on Tuesday, which gave me an idea for a task for today.

One of the books he spoke about was called ‘Fing’

The story is about a girl called Myrtle Meek, who has everything…

But everything isn’t enough. She wants more, more, MORE! When Myrtle declares she wants a FING, there’s only one problem… What is a FING?

Mr and Mrs Meek will do anything to keep their darling daughter happy, even visit the spooky library vaults to delve into the dusty pages of the mysterious Monsterpedia. Their desperate quest leads to the depths of the jungliest jungle where the rarest creatures can be found. But will they ever find a FING?

Your task today is to design your very own ‘Fing’

Think about:

  • What does it look like?
  • How does it behave?
  • How would you look after it?
  • What is the best and worst thing about it?
  • What does it eat?
  • Where does it live?
  • What are some unusual facts about it?

Create a ‘double page spread’ for your ‘Fing’ giving as much information about it as possible.

Write a set of instructions for how to look after it as pet. Remember to include a warning if needed!

I really look forward to seeing what you create and it would be great to share these next week in class.

Have a great day
