Story time – Look for the email that gives you the code for chapter 26


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


Miss Thomas’s group – Work your way through the ‘learn’ tasks.  Count the money carefully.  Then have a go at the work that goes with it.

Mrs Malone’s group –Work through the learning page and then complete the work to go with it.

Mrs Malone’s group – follow the instructions on the sheet 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 design your own sheet on a plain piece 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.  I have left the task sheet as a ‘word’ document so if you want to type your answer you can delete the lines and type in your sentences.

Mrs Malone’s group - You are going to be using the green book called 'Stitch the witch’ for the rest of the week. 

Theme - Florence Nightingale

To day we are going to find out what Florence Nightingale did after she trained to become a nurse.  Where did she go?  What did she do?  What did she find when she got there?

Begin by looking at the slide show.  You will learn the answers to these questions.  If you see a question on the slide show, try and answer it as well.

Task – think of some questions that you might want to ask Florence about her journey by boat to Scutari.  Show your questions in the speech bubbles.  Be careful, what do you need if you are asking questions?


The artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo created lots of paintings out of objects that were about at the time he was painting.  If you look at the slide show, you will see that he used fruits and vegetables that were growing to create pictures of people.

Go out into your garden or look round your house and see what bits and pieces you could use to create a picture.  It could be a picture of anything; your choice.  You don’t have to stick it down onto paper, you could just lay the objects down to create a picture.  It can be a big picture or a small picture, depending on what objects you use.  It would be lovely to see some photos of how your pictures came out.

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!!
