Good Morning Class 1/2A and Parent smiley


How are you all this morning? I hope you all had a good day yesterday.

It feels strange having a bank holiday on a Friday as you all know why because of the special work that we've been doing all week. I hope you enjoy the day with your family.


Once again thank you to all the parents who have been emailing and sending some wonderful pictures and videos. Please do have a look because they are FAB!!!



As you can see from the pictures somebody in our class has been super busy practicing their times tables.  It would be great to see more children practice your Olympic Bronze, Silver and Gold times tables awards. They're all saved in the Maths folder and you should be aiming to complete a strip in about  1 minute. Good luck!

Click on the PowerPoint slides:

Children will use the skills taught from the week to use their knowledge of time to complete various activities. At this stage, the link between the concrete, pictorial and abstract representations should be made explicit.
Ask questions such as:
What time is shown on the clock?
Can you show the time on the clock?
What comes before / after?

What are the days of the week? Months of the year?


Independent Maths Activities:

Activity 1: First, next, then, now. Children create their own events in order and write sentences using the words, first, next, then, now, finally sentences.


Activity 2: Calendar Events - can you order and the events and cut them out and glue them on the calendar.



Activity 3: Ordering Months - write the missing months on the table.




Extensions Activity:  Give children a blank piece of paper. They must draw a clock including numbers and both hands.


Break Time

I thinks time for us to get moving with super movers. Let’s try level 1

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




Yesterday, I told you which picture was my favourite from 'Bob - the Man in the Moon' book and asked you to add a speech bubble and thought bubbles to it.

I chose this picture because I find it funny that Bob doesn't know about the aliens but that they know all about him.

Today I'd like you to use your ideas from yesterday to write that part of the story from the point of view of one of the aliens.

Here's my WAGOLL (What a Good One Looks Like):


We see Bob every day when he comes to the Moon, but he never sees us! We hear him telling the visitors that we don’t exist, but we certainly do. He’s so silly!

Yesterday we were hiding in a crater. He shone his torch and shouted, “Is there anyone there? I hope nobody has fallen in.”

We hid against the walls, trying not to giggle. Blue had to put his finger over his lips to stop him making any noise. Red had a great big grin on his face and I was thinking, “How can he be so silly? I think we should sneak onto his space rocket when he comes tomorrow to see what Earth is like.”


Remember to use your punctuation carefully (CL FS ! , ? " ") and also to check your spellings.




Are you ready for some lunch am sure you must be hungry after doing all those activities.


Guided Reading


How are you doing with your reading books? I know that some of you have read lots and have been reading books from Oxford Owl using the link in the weblinks page. Parents, if you haven't signed up yet, please do so. I've had some great reports from parents who are using it. 

Choose a character from any book that you have read and write a description of them.

You wrote great descriptions at school about the Hobgoblin and the Snow Queen so I know that you can do a great job of this.

Here's how we started the hobgoblin work, by collecting ideas around an image.



 We then wrote sentences about his face, then his clothing and then his special features (his wings).

Which character will you choose? Is it human, animal or a magical creature?


If you have read any books on Oxford Owl that you would like to recommend to your friends, just let me know by email and I'll let your friends know.



Special work for V.E. Day.

Each afternoon this week, I have asked you to choose an activity (or more than one if you wish) from this grid. What did you choose yesterday?  Have you tried the code activities yet?

Remember, if you click on the underlined links they will take you to recipes, code information, dance instructions and much more. What will you choose to do today? I can't wait to find out. Remember to let me know through emails, photographs or videos. Have fun!



Will you be taking part in a 'Stay at Home Street Party' tomorrow?

Ready to the end your busy day with a story. Did you enjoy the story yesterday? When you are ready click on the video to play.


When a Dragon Moves In read by Mark Duplass

If you build a perfect sandcastle, a dragon will move in. And that's exactly what happens to one very lucky boy at the beach. Dad is busy sunbathing and Mom ...

I hope you all have a great bank holiday weekend and I will hopefully see you on Monday. Take care and keep safe.


Bye for now and see you soon!!


Lots of love XXX
