Mental and oral Starter Activity:

Practice your times tables.


Here's the link to today's Flashback:





With all of the practice that you have had over the last two weeks on addition, subtraction and your times tables (including the division facts), you're sure to do so well on this week's Mental Arithmetic Test.

First, here's a quick link to the 1/2A 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.

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



Break Time

I thinks time for us to get moving with super movers.

When you are ready click on link to play the video.




Your first task today is to use Google images to do some research on Spring flowers. Write the names of the flowers in the petals.



Watch these videos and make notes about what you see happening during spring time. Also think about your other senses.

You will need to use your notes from the videos to help you to write your poem: Early in the morning in Spring time’.

Here’s my idea for the first verse:

Early in the morning, I wake up to the sound of birds tweeting and chirruping.

Jumping out of bed, I rush to the window to watch them darting and swooping.



I'm sure you are ready for some lunch now!


Guided Reading

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

The Smeds and The Smoos

Mr Donnelly reads the Smeds and the Smoos

You can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There are also two activities to complete at the end: ‘Spot The Difference’ and ‘Design Your Own Alien’. Here is your task.




Learning for Life

With your child, please talk about how lot of things have had to change in recent months due to Coronavirus and stress that we have been unable to control these. Discuss the things that have changed for example: schools have been closed, going out for food shopping only, not going out to eat, not being able to play with friends, unable to visit family/friends, unable to go away on holidays, not going to cinema/bowling/sport centres, not attending parties/family celebrations, not visiting church/Mosque/temple and only going out for exercise.

Make the point that some things happen and change around us or to us that we are unable to control, e.g. circumstances, the seasons change, our bodies change. Ask the children to think about how they feel about the seasons changing.

Now ask them to think about how their bodies might change and to share  how this feels e.g. exciting, scary, strange, etc. Reinforce the idea that things around us do change and that is OK.


Activity 1:

Provide children with this set of pictures (but cut them up first) and ask them to find the matching pairs. Then talk about any changes that have taken place to make the baby into an adult.

Look at these fantastic clips which introduce life cycles. There is a compilation of clips set to background music. They include images of seed dispersal, eggs, bees, seedlings growing, eggs hatching, caterpillars, pupae, a calf, and a human baby.

Ask your child to think about what life cycles are shown on each clip.

Explain that a life cycle is how things grow and change from a baby to an adult.


Activity 2:

Children to choose one life cycle from the film clip and to draw the baby/seed/infant and how it changes to become an adult or fully grown.

Children to draw their pictures and write a sentence to describe the changes.




Let’s finish our day with story. I hope you enjoy it.


Rent Party Jazz read by Viola Davis

Rent Party Jazz is written by William Miller, illustrated by Charlotte Riley-Webb and read by Viola Davis. This story is set in New Orleans in the 1930s. Son...

I hope you have fab day and a lovely weekend. Remember to be good for your parents.


Bye for now and see you all next week. 


Take care and keep safe.


Love From
