Class 5 / Maple

Hello again Maple Class!
I hope you are all doing well and enjoyed celebrating VE Day on Friday.
I think Mrs Monks and I have spoken to nearly all of you now between us - it has been lovely to hear your voices and to hear about what you've been up to.
This week, we are looking at persuasive speeches - there are several speeches given by famous people for you to read and reflect on before having a go at writing one of your own. It would be lovely to hear or read what you come up with. Send them to admin@stjo.uk - either the written version, or, if you are feeling brave, record yourself giving the speech and send that in!
I have uploaded the worksheets you need in both a PDF viewer (so you can look at them online without needing to download them) and as PDFs which you can download and print if you want to. The two powerpoints you need are also attached below.
Make sure you are making good use of this time to enjoy time with your family - make sure you are showing the kindness that Maple are so well known for at school to the people you are in lockdown with!
Stay safe everyone!
Mrs Jukes and Mrs Monks
