Good Morning Children and Your Parents. laugh


We hope you are all well and had a lovely weekend break. Did some of you plan something special for Father’s Day? Mrs Ahmad bought her Father a new pair of shoes and her daughter baked her Grandad his favourite fruit cake. Miss Sykes went on a nice walk with her Father.

The weather is going to warm up this week so please make sure you wear your sun hat, sun cream and remember to stay safe in the sun.


Here are today’s activities:


Joe Wicks will not be delivering daily fitness activities from this week. He has decided to deliver his sessions on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. For the rest of the week we will continue to use his workout sessions from his collection.


Let's get started with today's tasks, starting with a Joe Wicks workout:


Spelling Test:

We hope you have practiced your spellings from last week. Don’t worry as you can all have another practice before we do our test. GOOD LUCK!



This week in spelling we are focusing on plurals. Most words add an ‘s’ end to show there's more than one e.g. house becomes houses. If the singular noun ends in -s, -ss, -sh, -ch, -x, or -z, we add -es to the end to make it plural. This isn't too tricky as we can hear the -es ending when we say the words aloud.

In English this week we are going to be reading some poems about the winter season.

Today we are going to start our lesson with reading a poem 'What Could It Be?' Then you will need to answer some questions about the poem. Remember to read it a few times to improve your fluency and expression before answering the questions.



Questions about the poem: You can check your answers after you have completed the questions.



Use Google images and search for ‘Winter Season images’.

Write a list of 8 interesting captions that you think of when you see the images.

I’ve started my list:

1) bare branches with snow balancing on them

2) a smiling snowman in the centre of a snowy field

3) sledging down smooth, step, snow covered hills

4) frosted windows with patterns that look like ferns





Lunch time:  You must all be ready for lunch by now.


Guided Reading

We are going to look at our final Julia Donaldson story this week. I hope you have loved reading the ones we have looked at so far. Again, we are going to read the story in parts.


Let’s start with our prediction task:



What have we found out so far about the lessons Jesus taught?

As well as telling stories through parables, Jesus also gave speeches called sermons to teach people what he wanted them to know. One of his most famous sermons is the Sermon on the Mount.


Go through the PowerPoint slides explaining to the children that beatitudes were a series of blessings declared by Jesus during His "Sermon on the Mount".


Another important teaching from the Sermon on the Mount is the Lord’s Prayer. Read this through together on the slides and explain that most Christians know this prayer  off by heart because it is so important.


Task: Use the key to crack the code and spell out what Jesus taught at the Sermon on the Mount. You can check your answers with the answer sheet once you have cracked the code.

Extension Task:

Jesus was a teacher. He taught people about God and how to God wanted them to behave and to treat each other.

How many people can you think of that teach you things?

Choose one person that teaches you something. Draw a picture of them and describe what they teach you.


Music:  For singing today we have chosen some of your favourite songs to sing. You will enjoy singing them and don't forget the actions!
