Day 5 (03.07.20)

 

Morning!

 

Happy Friday! We hope you have had a good week so far. Here are your tasks for today:

 

English:

 

Watch the video, ‘For the Heroes: A Pep Talk From Kid President’:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgF1Enrgo2g&safe=active

After watching, write down what an ‘everyday-hero’ means to you.

 

Think about someone you consider to be an ‘everyday-hero’ during the current time in lockdown. This could be:

  • someone you know personally, such as a family member, friend or teacher
  • someone you have seen on the news, such as Captain Tom Moore or Tony Hudgell

        See: www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52277760  

        And: [read the warning below before clicking]

     ! Please be aware that some of the videos on the same page as the one above may not be suitable viewing for the children –               parental supervision is advised.

  • a whole team of people, such as those working in your local hospital

 

Once you have selected your everyday hero, choose one of these two tasks:

 

(a) Write a short persuasive argument, giving points with explanation as to why you think that person should be recognised or has rightly been recognised for their achievements / contribution during the lockdown.

(b) Write a letter to say thank you to the person you have chosen. When writing your letter make sure you include the following:

- An opening greeting

- An initial sentence/paragraph outlining why you are writing

- Additional paragraphs giving reasons as to why they are your everyday hero

- A concluding paragraph: summarising your reasons / reiterating your thanks

- A suitable sign-off. This will be different depending on who you are writing your letter to.

We hope you have a great day and a lovely weekend.
