Story time – check on Marvellous Me for chapter 15

Please send back your Maths, English and Theme today.


Miss Thomas’s group – today we are changing to the very short topic of ‘temperature’.  We are looking at reading the scales on a thermometer and then working out how hot or cold something is.  Use the learning sheets first and then have a go at the work.

Mrs Malone’s group – Today you are starting a new topic called ‘Add by counting on’.   Look at the learning pages and then complete the worksheets.


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.

  • Review –

    • Go through speed sounds (page 4)

    • Go through the green and red word (page 5)

    • Look through the vocabulary check and find out what the sounds mean

    • Read the book faster and more fluently

  • Parents – read the sentence ‘She had a big bag of chips.’  Read slowly and carefully for the children to write down.  Do not give any help.

  • Work through the sentence together looking for capital letters, full stops and spellings.

  • NOW… you need to answer some questions in full sentences please on a separate piece of paper.

    • What are chips made from?

    • Do you like chips and why?

What is your favourite sauce to eat with your chips?


Carrying on from yesterday… animals of the arctic.

Revisit the slideshow from yesterday if you need to.  Choose one of the animals from the arctic and create a ‘learning tree’ about you animal.  I have created one for a penguin as an example for you.  You cannot choose a penguin; do you know why?

You can make this ‘learning tree’ as big and as complicated as you need it to be.  I have only put some ideas on mine.  With some research I am sure you can find out far more information.

You can create it as a word document with pictures from the internet or you can create it on a piece of paper that you have at home.  You decide!  Just let me see a picture at the end of the creation


Now it is time to add some animals to our Arctic landscape.  You have some knowledge already from your topic work this week, but I have added some other bits of information for you to look at, print out or copy if you need it. (Arctic information pack 1 and 2)

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!!
