Have a thrilling Thursday!


Maths - L.O.: To subtract a 2-digit number from a 2-digit number - crossing 10

Please ensure that your child watches this video first before completing the paper based activity attached below. I have also uploaded the answers.


Today will be our Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling lesson.


In this lesson we will explore nouns and how we can change them from a singular to a plural by adding 's'.

Remind yourself: What is a noun?  Tell your adult/brother/sister.

Click on the link below for today's lesson.


Today we will begin to focus on the alternative grapheme 'aw' for the phoneme /or/. 

Please listen to the video below first before completing today's activity



Look at the picture below.

Find all the words in the list.

Tell your adult/brother/sister about what you notice: would you find the 'aw' grapheme at the beginning, middle or end of a word/syllable?

After you have discussed what you noticed with your adult/brother/sister, complete the paper based activity.

Guided Reading

Well done! We have complete our book -'Way - Out Day Out', written by Rob Alcraft. I hope you enjoyed it.

Today, you are going to write a review about our book by answering these questions:

  • Did you enjoy this book? Why or why not?
  • What did you find most interesting?
  • Would you tell a friend or family member to read this book? Why or why not?



This half term our topic is 'Why does it matter where our food comes from?' To begin the topic, I would like you to Iook at the photograph below:

Now, I would like you to think about this question:

  1. Where does our food begin its journey?
  2. Do you think it looks the same way on our forks (or spoons) when it started its journey?
  3. Do you think you could label each 'stage' of our food's journey?  Tell your adult what you would put in each blue box.

After you have discussed the questions with your adult, share what you already know and what you would like to know about this topic, using the attached sheet.  Please remember to only complete the 'What I know' and 'What I would like to know'.


Today we will continue learning about  - 'Living Things and their habitats'.  

In this lesson we will focus on what 'alive', 'dead' and 'never alive' means.


All living things show signs of life.  They move, respire (breathe), they feed, they grow, they reproduce (make more of their own)  and they excrete (get rid of waste.) 


Trees are living things. Dogs, cats, fish, snakes, bees and people are also living things. 

Dry leaves on the ground are dead, but they were once part of a living tree. Bones were once part of a living animal that now is dead. Dead things no longer show signs of life.

Anything metal, plastic or stone has never been alive.
