Hi Everyone,

Today we introduced and explained to you this homework task. As you’re all very clever I don’t think it’s something that you will find difficult.

The Court Jester Movie Review:

After viewing the movie The Court Jester, you are to compose a movie review that meets the following criteria:

  • An introduction statement about the movie
    ‘I have  been asked to review the movie The Court Jester. It was filmed in… directed by… and starring…’

Oh, by the way… GET IT, GOT IT, GOOD!
Now, don’t forget it.

You will need to post your movie review on YOUR blog as a POST!


If you need help remembering sections of the plot, actors or characters, you can use this website to HELP (not copy).

There is a ‘quick links’ box on the right hand side (under the ads box) which may help you navigate, and if you type ‘The Court Jester Quotes’ into the search box, you should find some helpful quotes.

Google Images is your friend when you are looking for scenes (pictures) to add captions to.

Remember, work you find on the internet is NOT yours. Have a go at referencing (saying where you got your info from).

Have fantastic holidays- looking forward to seeing what you all thought of the movie!

Your task is to create a short poem to put onto your About Me page.

Here is the framework for the poem:

Your name.

Three adjectives to describe yourself.

How you are related or connected to someone else. Son? Daughter? Eldest of three siblings?

Three things you love.

Three things that make you happy.

Three things you give.

Three things you fear.

One dream you have for the future.

Final line: I am (your name).

I have put this poem onto my About Me page, if you would like to see a finished one.
There are also some finished poems from another blog HERE.
Thanks to Ms Hankinson’s Blog for this homework task.

Post your poem onto your About Me page.

Can’t wait to read your poems!

Your About Me Page

Hi Everyone,

Yesterday, we started investigating what you could post on your ‘About Me’ page. We decided we wanted to make our blogs a little more personal, but not give away any personal information (personal information includes anything that you would not like a stranger to know about you).

This link has some good information and links to other student blogs with ‘About Me’ type pages.

I want you to explore this website that contains links to examples of ‘About Me’ pages:

about me page

While you are looking at these websites I would like you add any new ideas to your ‘About Me Page Ideas’ word document.

Then we will get together to share some of the ideas and how you can write about them on your about me page.

What things are not ok to post about on your About Me page?

Some rules for suffixes

Hi 5C,

Yesterday we got quite into revising adding -ed or -ing as suffixes to some words. But there were a few interesting little things that we realised. The first thing was that while there are rules, the rules are not always the same for every type of word. The second thing was that even though -ed is two letters, it can make 3 different sounds, which can be a bit confusing.

Here’s a powerpoint that Amy found that might be helpful.
Spelling Rules for ed and ing

Your task for today is to create a table with base words that have -ed or -ing added to them. You’ll need 3 columns- one for the base word, one with the base word with the suffix added to it and one column for the sound that the sound of the suffix and new meaning of the word. Sounds confusing?! I’ll show you on the whiteboard!
