English

In class we have been reading ‘The Diary of a Killer Cat and the children have been loving hearing about the naughty things that Tuffy has been doing, including bringing inside lots of nearby animals.  So far, we have heard of him bringing in a feathery flutterball – a bird! Listen and follow along to Chapter 4 – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VR3YzigE6-o  and write down any new words that you have not heard of before. Pause the video and find out what they mean.

Can you pause the video, find the words in the sentences and discuss their meaning using the sentences to help you?

For example these words appear and you might need to discuss their meanings. explain, credit, cat flap, opinion, “going mental”, trouble, stared, tiny, weigh a ton, freaked out, berserk, admit, suppose, dreadful,  fetched, impressed, dunked, plonked, hutch, strolled, spruced up.

Jotter Learning Platform

At St Michael’s we subscribe to Jotter; the learning platform designed with primary schools in mind. Children are growing up in a fast-changing online world and we strive to ensure that they gain the essential skills both within and beyond school. Teachers will keep you up-to-date with your child’s learning. Your child will be able to download and upload work and complete tasks. There will be pages where much of what you see has been created by the children themselves. This is their chance to shine as they write content and collaborate on research.

Jotter gives children the opportunity to explore concepts such as wikis and blogs in a safe environment. We hope you enjoy using Jotter as much as we do. To log in please type in your child’s username and password. To obtain this information please speak to your class teacher.
