Good Morning Children and Your Parents laugh


We hope you are all keeping well and safe. It's Friday today and we come to the end of another week. I'm sure you are all ready for the weekend. Have you got any plans for the weekend? Are you going to catch up with family and friends?

Did you enjoy your topic work yesterday? We would love to read some of your weather reports that you have written or even see you pretending to be a weather forecaster.


Today’s activities:

This is the link if you would like to start your day with Joe Wicks PE:



Today we have another phonics story and it's about ' Knights and Dragons'. We hope you enjoy the story. 


 Phonics Activity:

Martha is going to write a book about knights and Dragons. Can you help her write sentences to match the pictures?

Here's a quick link to the Maths folder where you'll find all of our Olympic Times Tables Awards: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

You can practice any of them, remembering that you're aiming to complete a strip in approximately one minute.

We really can't wait to see how amazing you are with your times tables when we get back to school.



Here's your Flashback page to help you remember things that we've already done:

Press play quickly when you open up the PowerPoint so that you don't see the answers until you're ready!



Today in Maths we are going to be learning about measuring temperatures using a thermometer. A thermometer can be used to measure the air temperature, body temperature or the temperature of liquid/food.

Linked to our work on weather, I am sure that you know that there are temperature differences between day and night, and that the temperature varies between shade and full sunshine. We can describe the temperature as being hot, mild, chilly or freezing.


Here is video to get us started. Click on the link when you are ready.



Here is today's PowerPoint.

Guided Reading

We are now going to look at the ending of the story. Let’s see if your predictions were correct. We hope you have enjoyed reading this story. It might be nice to listen to the whole story from the beginning.  


Stick Man (by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler)

Reading Stick Man out loud

Remember, you can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There is a Spot The Difference activity to complete at the end! Here are your tasks:



Learning for Life


 Today we are going to understand the natural process of growing from young to old and understand that this is not something that we can control.

You will be identifying people who are older than you and thinking about how you give them respect.




Use the PowerPoint pictures of a baby, toddler, teenager, adult and elderly person. Describe two changes you can visibly see that happen to an elderly person.

Think about how our bodies have already changed and what other changes might happen, e.g. bodies become slower, old people run less but might get wiser and kinder. Remember that change is a natural process as we get older and we have no control over it. We will all become old and all grow from a baby, to a toddler, to a child, to a teenager, to an adult and to an old person.

How do our faces/bodies change as we become older?

We are going to listen to the story 'My Grandpa is Amazing' by Nick Butterworth. This fits in beautifully with our work today.

My Grandpa is Amazing

By Sophie

How special is this grandpa is to his grandchildren? 

Can you think about someone in your family or community who is old? This could be a grandparent or a family friend or a neighbour.


Independent Activity:

To make a leaf mobile: Draw a picture of an older person who is special to you. On the back of the leaf template, write about the things that they respect, like or love about this person.




We hope you have had a fab day.

Take care and enjoy the weekend and we'll see you all next week.

Remember to be good for your parents. You are all so amazing and we are all so proud of you!


Bye for now 

Love from

Miss Stansfield and Mrs Ahmad  laugh
