Good Morning Year 5
I hope you are ready for the final day of the home school week.
Today is the 1st May, which is also traditionally known as May Day.
This marks the approach of the incoming Summer.
Usually it is celebrated by: Morris Dancing, crowning a May Queen, and dancing around a Maypole. Such a shame it won't be happening this year though but there will be many more to come where we get to enjoy May Day.

Today we are focusing on Standard and non-Standard English.
Standard English is the variety of English which is used, with minor regional and national variations, as a world language.
The aim of learning it in school is that everyone should be able to use Standard English as needed in writing and in relatively formal speaking.
Standard English may also be referred to as 'correct' English. It follows grammatical rules like subject-verb agreement and the correct use of verb tenses or pronouns, for example:

The BIG Friday Challenge
Today your mission is to create the DREAM hotel for Kids. I want you to come up with and design a hotel that you would like to build and stay in.
It can be anywhere in the world, you have no budget (so go wild!)
However you must have:
1) A name for the hotel
2) A description of the foyer (the entrance where you collect your keys from) and what happens there, you need this to make an impact and give a brilliant first impression of the hotel to your guests.
3) A picture (with labels) of how you get to your rooms.
4) A picture (with labels) of what a typical hotel room looks like, make sure I can see all the amazing fun and luxurious extras that it has.
5) A list of all the things you can do in the hotel whilst you are staying there.
Here is an example of the Gruffalo room at Chessington World of Adventures!
You might choose to do a theme, or just combine all the things you like in one hotel!
For more information see the file below, which has some suggestions to think about.
I would love to share some of this work with you all, so get designing!
