Good morning children.

 

Welcome to another week of home learning. It has been lovely seeing your work on Class Dojo! I hope you are all okay? I look forward to seeing your work this week.

Please follow the step by step guide attached to the bottom of this page to find the punctuation and grammar page.

 

Today we will look at contractions. This is where we use apostrophes to join/shorten two words to make one word, for example, 'did' and 'not' become 'didn't'.

 

Go onto Espresso using the details above and the help sheet attached below if needed. Find the KS1 grammar and punctuation under English.

LITERACY

On World Oceans Day, people around the World celebrate and honour the ocean, which connects us all. The aim is for people to get together to start creating a better future and protect our oceans.

 

In particular, organisers 'The Ocean Project' wish to see 30% of the world's oceans be protected in the coming years.

 

World Ocean Day is celebrated every year on June 8th. 

 

Why do we celebrate World Oceans Day?

 

  • The ocean generates a lot of the oxygen we breathe.
  • It provides food around the world.
  • It regulates the climate.
  • It gives work opportunities to thousands of people.
  • Is home to trillions of fish and sea creatures.

 

>Have a look at the following videos about World Ocean Day
