Wednesday 20th January

IMPORTANT…  I have added in story time today!  Before Christmas we were reading The Magic Faraway Tree and I was worried that we might have forgotten all the exciting things that had happened to Joe, Beth and Frannie, so I have created a short video of the next chapter.  Your adults will receive a code through their Marvellous Me.  Click on that code and listen to Chapter 11. 

Please return your maths, Grammar and theme work today.


Miss Thomas’s group – We are continuing to look at mass (how much something weighs).  When you are looking at scales you must read the dials very carefully to know how much you are weighing. 

Mrs Malone’s group – read through the learning document about comparing numbers and then complete the maths work.


Miss Thomas’s group – Follow the instruction sheet to work through so that you can build up knowledge to help you with the tasks at the end of the lesson.  Then complete the activities.  There is no written work for you to complete today, but if your adult can do a very short film of you being a dinosaur (read the instructions to see what you have to do), then it would be great to see them.

Mrs Malone’s group - You are going to be using the green book called 'Tug, Tug’ for the rest of the week.  Today I would like you to...

  • 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

It may not seem like a lot of work, but you know that Mrs Malone gets you to practice your sounds and words over and over again to make sure you are really confident.  There is no written work for you today, so spend this time becoming really confident with the book.  See how many people you can read it to, today.

Let’s go to the Arctic – exploring the Arctic’s physical features

Physical features are my favourite part of geography.

Work your way through the slide show as you did last week.

Talk through any of the questions with you adults.

A physical feature is something that occurs naturally in the environment.  A house is not a physical feature because it is built.  It is called man-made.

Activity – Look at the drawings of the different physical features and see if you can match up the descriptions and the photographs.

If you do not want to print out the sheet, draw the picture on another piece of paper and then write the description next to it.

Grammar Work

Imperatives – We use imperative verbs when we are giving instructions.  We all know that a verb is a doing word, but an imperative verb is a bossy doing word.

The work sheet today practises those bossy words, and they will come in very useful when we are writing instructions in English.

Activity – you can either type the answers to this activity into a word document and send me that or you can write it out on a piece of paper.

Your first sentence might be:

First, place two pieces of bread on the plate.

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!!


Story time...

Find out what happened to Joe, Beth and Frannie when they visit the Magic Faraway Tree in chapter 11.  Your adults should have received a code through Marvellous Me.  Just click on it and listen!  


Tune in for Chapter 12 tomorrow!
