Good Morning Children and Your Parents. laugh


We hope you are all well and that you have had a lovely weekend break. The weather certainly is much cooler. Did you manage to do something nice over the weekend? Perhaps some of you have met up with a friend. 

Some children are starting their first day back at school today and we hope that they have a good day. We're sure that they will be feeling excited to see some of their friends.


Here are today’s activities:

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

Can you help squirrel decide how to pronounce the tricky ch grapheme for each word? Which word does it match?



This week in phonics we are going to be focusing on learning the ch and tch sound that comes at the end of words. We need to learn when each one is used.

On Wednesday this week, we are going to be writing summer shape poems, but first we need to learn about alliteration and similes.

Today we’ll learn about alliteration and tomorrow our work will be about similes.

Here’s a PowerPoint all about alliteration:



If you can't open the PowerPoint, use the PDF.

Today you are going to write your own sentences which include alliteration. They're great fun to write.


Here are my ideas:

Fragrances from the flowers filled the air.

The sizzling sun seared my skin.

I was splishing and splashing on the seashore

A hummingbird hovered above my head.

Brilliant blue butterflies were being blown by the breeze.

Lunch time: You must be ready for some lunch.


Guided Reading

Can you remember which author we read a book by last week? We are going to look at another Julia Donaldson story this week. Again, we are going to read the story in parts. Let’s start with our prediction task:




Today in RE we are going to find out about the parable of the lost son.

A parable is short story that teaches us a moral or a spiritual lesson. The story we are going to be reading today is one of the stories told by Jesus and recorded in the Bible.

.Have you ever lost something that was really important to you? How did this make you feel? Did you find the object again?

During his life, Jesus wanted to teach people about how God wanted them to live. To do this, he often taught using parables. These are stories that teach a lesson.


Go through the parable of the lost son on the slides.

What do you think Jesus was trying to tell us through this story? 





RE Task:

Draw a picture to show what happens in each section of the story, then attach the base sheet to the cover using a split pin. When you've finished, you'll be able to read through the story as you spin the wheel around.




Extension Activity:

Cut out the Puppet Characters (photocopied onto card if possible). Stick the characters onto straws or sticks to create puppets. You can then use the puppets to retell the story of the lost son.





Today's song is definitely one of our favourites. Click on the link and then open the 'Get Moving' folder to find 'Wake Up!' 

You'll also love learning some of the new songs in the same folder.

Try out 'Move to the Music' and 'Coordination Funk'.  Remember that you can check out the song activities, too.



Story Time:

It’s always good to finish the day off with a story. Make sure you are sitting nice and comfortably.

We hope you have enjoyed your day and we shall see you tomorrow.


Bye for now from
