A message from Patrick- 19th May 2020

Hello all,


I hope you have had a good start to the week and are enjoying the book we are reading on Purple mash! What is your favourite part so far? I have set chapter four now and I have put a bonus true or false challenge in there as well.


Well done to Sophia, Weda, Yi-Sheng and Davmie for winning the writing competition! It is nice to see the year 5s working so hard and I’m sure you are all looking forward to seeing your surprise prize in the mail.


On the back of learning about some countries in Europe today, I would like you to tell me five facts about some cities or towns in Europe. Try to pick a city or town that has not been mentioned. I will get us started:

  • Sorrento is on the Amalfi coast in the south of Italy.
  • Gnocchi alla Sorrentina is a classic Italian dish from Sorrento (can you tell me what is in it?).
  • It is known for having small shops which sell ceramics, lacework and woodwork.
  • Sorrento is said to have been founded by the Ancient Greeks!
  • It is well known for its beauty and used to visited by lots of poets and artists.



I look forward to learning even more about Europe today after your good work yesterday.


I am happy to see that people are learning on MyMaths and Purple mash. If you have not looked at this week’s work then please have a look and give it a go.


Thanks as always for checking in and working hard at the challenges I set- I really do enjoy hearing from you all.


Speak soon,
