The weekly merit post is back! With a special video treat…
Let’s celebrate all of your efforts by seeing how many merits you’ve won. I’d like to make a special mention to Safiyyah this week, who took pride in her work and made a beautiful illustration to go with her wonderful Brum diary.
Vihansa’s writing was very similar, with beautiful joins and a lovely illustration! Well done to everyone who wrote a diary entry. If you haven’t finished yet, you will still win a merit if you send it. The same for any leaflets about the UK! Just send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
When Mr Morgan was in primary school, his teacher showed him and his class mates this TV show. There are ten episodes, and I will share them with you over the next six weeks.
Three children from a school near you create an amazing painting on their wall, which turns into a magical portal into another world! Here they meet the Pelamots who are in grave danger. A book will tell them how to save the day, but none of the Pelamots can read! It’s up to the children to save the day by using their reading skills. Can you help them?

I hope you are keeping your books closed when you quiz!
Vihansa somehow scored ten 100% scores. My mind is blown. Rules are rules, but I will give you a bonus merit for quizzing every day in the half term.
Meanwhile Aaron scored 80% on a book that had a level of 6.5. I’ve informed Oxford and Cambridge University. Bonus merit given.
Work Sent to email@example.com (MAX score: 5) – Saule 5, Aaron 5, Yi-Xuan 3, Vihansa 3, Safiyyah 3.
Bonus merit went to Saule who edited her entire diary entry after I gave feedback to her about writing in the first person.
Only five of you sent me work this week! I expect a lot more!
19 merits – Saule, Aaron and Vihansa… I’m so proud of all three of you. Everything I set, you do. You are amazing!
17 merits – Safiyyah… Amazing as well!
10 merits – Yi-Xuan… Scoring more merits every week!
7 merits – Kianosh… Great quizzing this week! Try to get ten merits next week.
7 merits – Melina… Well done but I know you can score more merits! If you work hard you’ll reach 100 soon!
6 merits – Nariyah… Well done! Try to get ten merits next week.
5 merits – Adem… Some good learning at home, but can you score ten merits next week?
4 merits – Nala… Well done, but I need to get you on Purple Mash just like Nariyah!
3 merits – Albino… Try to get more next week!
2 merits – Yasmin… I believe you can score more!
2 merits – Razvan… It was great to see you logging into MyMaths this week. Keep this up and try Purple Mash!
2 merits – Josepha… Well done on your 100% quiz, make sure you do your MyMaths at least!
I know some children are working on tasks being given by the school office, such as Iman and Rehan. I hope to give them merits when I see this work in the future! However, if you have a computer, and you’ve scored zero merits, I’d like you to try harder. I don’t expect everyone to complete all of the tasks like Saule, Vihansa, Aaron and Safiyyah do, but I do want you to try some and watch all the videos.
