Good morning 1S! laugh


How are you today? What did you get up to this weekend? I did my delivery then I went for a walk in Fixby Woods. It was quite cold so I enjoyed coming back and having an extra-large hot chocolate, with cream, and marshmallows! Don’t forget you can send me some pictures of what you have been doing, I am missing you lots and love to see you:


We have just this week to get through, then we have one week half-term which you definitely deserve! I am so proud of you all for your hard work. You are amazing!


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


Here are some activities to complete today:


Please complete your spelling test. Use the spelling sheet that is labelled 'Test Date Monday 18th May 2020' in the ‘Spellings’ folder. Maybe an older sibling could test you? Once you have done this, please practise your letter formation.


Have a look at our next set of spellings, these are saved in the 'Spellings' folder as ‘Spellings 18.05.20’.



Phase 5 Alternative Spellings /oi/. You will need to log in to access this game.

Phase 5


Then scroll down to ‘Phase 5c Interactive Resources - Weeks 8-30’ and find ‘Alternative Spellings /oi/’.


In ‘Phoneme Spotter’ you need to see how many different graphemes you can find for the /oi/ phoneme- you could list the words. In ‘Word Sort’ you need to read the word, then sort it to the grapheme used. Remember, you need to be able to apply these different spellings in different words.



Start each day with a page from the Flashbacks. They're saved in the ‘Maths’ Folder. Remember, this will consolidate what we have already learnt! You should be on Week 7 Day 1 today. Did you get 4/4 correct?


Warm up: Kat has 20 sweets. Jake has 40 sweets.

How many sweets do they have altogether?

How many more sweets does Jake have than Kat?

If Kat and Jake put their sweets together, then share them equally, how many sweets will they have each?

Using your sheet from Friday, copy a really neat version of your labelled diagram of a space shuttle onto Bolts’ Report Sheet. Make sure that all of your labels are horizontal. Now use your notes to write the explanation of how a shuttle works.


Here’s my WAGOLL:


After months of preparation, the shuttle is ready to be launched into space from the launch pad. The booster rockets are ignited and they give the shuttle its lift-off, but after only two minutes they fall back to earth with parachutes. The fuel tank is filled with enough fuel to fill a swimming pool but it only lasts nine minutes and then the orbiter’s engines fire up to give the shuttle its final push into space. Did you know that a space shuttle takes off like a rocket but lands like a glider? How awesome it would be to be a commander or pilot of a space shuttle!


Remember to write in full sentences using capital letters and full stops for each one. You may also need to use commas, question marks or exclamation marks. What punctuation have you included today?


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


Here is the next part of the story. You'll need to look closely at the pictures from the Beegu book to help you to answer the questions. Picture books offer lots of opportunity for discussion and sharing of ideas. There are no correct answers, just good ideas! Being able to give your own opinion is really important.



This week in RE we are going to find out why Muslims celebrate Eid al-Fitr.


Eid al-Fitr (sometimes also written as Eid ul Fitr) happens at the end of Ramadan. On this day Muslims celebrate the end of fasting and they thank God for giving them the strength and self-control to fast. Have a look through these PowerPoint slides and discuss the different ways Eid is celebrated:

Eid may be celebrated by the giving of cards, sharing sweets, using henna and visiting friends and family. Muslims often wear new clothes for this special celebration.


Here is a video of henna being applied:


Here is your task, look back at the PowerPoint for clues.

Would you like to make an Eid card?
