Story time – check for an email to give you the code for chapter 24

Today I would like you to return your maths, English and theme work.


Miss Thomas’s group – Continuing with problem solving.  Work through the learning activities.  You don’t need to write anything down for these if you don’t want to.  Then tackle the work tasks.

Mrs Malone’s group – Work through the learning sheets and then complete the tasks


Miss Thomas’s group – Follow the English learning and instructions and then complete the tasks.  When doing the written task, you can either print out the sheet to work on or you can write your answers on your own sheet of paper.  If you are using plain paper, ask an adult to draw you some straight lines for your writing.  It will help you to keep everything neat and tidy.

If you want to listen to the story mentioned in the story, this is the code:  


You will need to cut and paste it into the address bar at the top of a webpage.

Mrs Malone’s group – Read the book and write the sentences that your adult reads to you.  Then draw a picture of a fish tank and complete the tasks


Revisit the slideshow about Florence Nightingale from yesterday.

We are going to try something slightly different today.  Normally I ask you the questions and you would use your knowledge to tell me the answers.  But today I am going to give you the answers and you are going to try and work out what the question would be to get that answer.

For example, one of the answers is: Florence Nightingale was born on 12th May 1820.

You might think the questions would be: When was Florence Nightingale born? (Remember to add a question mark to the end as you are asking the question).

You can either print off the task sheet and write in the answers or you can write your questions on a separate piece of paper.  Make sure you put the question numbers if you do, please.


We are going to start learning about the artist, Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Have a look through the slide show to find out a bit more about it.

One of his main interests was drawing self-portraits (drawing pictures of himself).  If possible, find a mirror that you can sit in front of and then have a go at drawing a picture of yourself.  Think carefully about what you see.  If you want, you can colour it afterwards.  Take care.  Think about excellent presentation, keep your colours inside the lines.  Draw lightly in pencil so that you can rub it out if you need to.

Daily Reading

Although we are not able to change your books at school every day, you do need to practice your reading skills.  Make time to do 10 minutes of reading with your adults before the end of the day.  I am sure you have plenty of books on your bookshelves.  Let me know if you read any really exciting ones that you think I might like!!
