1.      Who are the men in the advert?

 

2.      How can you tell that the men are determined to play well?

 

3.      Why did Nike choose these two men to appear in their advert?

 

 

 

English Task:

 

Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to create a piece of writing to try and persuade the Year 4 teachers to visit Sicily. Today, we are going to think about what persuasive writing is as well as identifying the key features we need to use. We have attached a PowerPoint and examples of persuasive texts to help you with your work.

 

 

 

Spellings:

 

Attached to this blog is a PowerPoint with your weekly spellings. Once you have learnt your spellings, try using them in a sentence. Remember to use a conjunction and an adverb to make them more interesting.

 

 

 

Additional Tasks:

 

Please try and read at least 5 times this week. You can read a variety of different texts. Why don’t you try to read something different?  You could also sign up to the library summer reading challenge (https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/)

 

It is also really important to stay active! Here are a few ideas:
