L.O: to tell the time using appropriate vocabulary  


When telling the time, it is important to note if it is am (morning/day) or pm (afternoon/night) as this changes the meaning of the time. For example, I eat my breakfast at 7am, this shows that it is early in the morning, I eat my dinner at 6pm, this shows that it is in the evening. See if you can think on any events that take place during am and pm.


To start with answer your ‘In Focus’ question which is on the first page. As we would normally discuss this with our partners at school, see if there is an adult or older brother or sister to talk to about it. Please use the box on this page record your answer and methods.


Next look at the ‘Guided Practice’ which shows you some of the different style questions. I have shown my methods and left the answers on the worksheet so you can see the setting out and how to go about answering these types of questions


Now it is your turn! Have a go at the ‘Independent Practice’ which is a copy of the worksheet that you would have completed in your MNP workbooks at school.


If you feel up for it, have a go at the challenge! Good luck!

L.O: to build a rich and varied vocabulary


Today we will begin to be introduced to the poem we will be studying for the next few lessons. Look at the first slide which show some clues as to what the poem is about. See if you can predict what the theme of this poem is. Write this down in a sentence, explaining how you know.


The next slide shows some key vocabulary that is in the poem. Read over the meaning of these words and the examples of them used in a sentence. For your main task today, I would like you to use each of these words in a sentence to show you fully understand their meanings.


Soak up, spit, weep, longing.


Although we are in lockdown, the expectation is for the children to still read 3 times a week for 10 minutes. Below is instructions and a link to oxford owl where an account has been created to provide the children with some ebooks.

After the chapter remember to vote on how Tina and Dad can escape. Have a go at the online quiz if you would like to.


Our questions today are from reading content domain 2f - Identify/explain how information/narrative content is related and contributes to meaning as a whole


  1. Why does the shadow laugh at the beginning of the story?
  2.  “Ain’t got you,” I sighed. How does Tina feel here?
  3.  “Our eyes widened.” Why do Tina and Dad’s eyes widen?

L.O: to explore word classes


For our SPAG lessons we will be beginning a series of video lessons about different types of words and phrases on the Oak National Academy with a new teacher, Mrs Hardisty. Try to find four different coloured crayons ready for this lesson.


Do not worry that we haven’t watched the story video, this is a SPAG unit, so we do not need to know this. The lesson will begin by looking at word class definitions, make sure you listen carefully to these as it will help you for the task.


For the main task you need to write out the sentence and using your colours code the words and write a key. For example: noun = green, adjective = yellow, verb = blue, adverb = red. After this you will write your own sentences using the word classes discussed.


L.O: to investigate objects that use air


This half term we will be completing a DT topic in our theme of ‘Let’s Move’ called ‘Moving Monsters’.


Begin by looking through the slides. How many objects can you think of that use air to make them work? See if you can list any of these ideas. How do each of these objects use air?


Look at the pictures on the slides of objects that use air to work, think about what the air does and how it has been used in the design of these products. For your main task, explain how air is used in each of these items and draw an annotated diagram for these.
