We would love you to share some of your amazing art work with us via email.

Tomorrow we are going to be learning to write summer haiku poems. Haikus are a traditional Japanese art form.

To be able to write a haiku, you need to understand what syllables are and be able to count how many syllables there are in a word.

Here’s a short clip giving you fun ways to count syllables:

Guided Reading

Here is the next part of the story. Let’s see if your predictions were correct. Please click this link and stop listening at 3.53.

Stick Man (by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler)

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Remember, you can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There is a word-search for you to complete at the end! Here are your tasks:




We are going to continue with our weather topic work. Today we are going to identify ways in which we learn about the weather, then learn about how weather forecasts are helpful.

Can you remember some differences between weather in coastal areas and inland areas from your work on Tuesday?



Here are some questions to help you work through the PowerPoint slides.

Depending on where you are in the United Kingdom, you might need to dress differently, or do different things because of the weather that day!

How do we know what to wear, or what sorts of jobs and activities we can do each day? How do we know in advance what the weather will probably be like in our local area?

How do you think weather forecasters are able to predict what the weather will be like? 

We can forecast the weather, too!

Can you predict what the weather might be like tomorrow? What's the weather at this time of year? What's the weather like today?


Topic Task:

Your task is to follow instructions to draw weather symbols on a map of the United Kingdom, according to the given weather report. You should know the countries of the UK and use the compass to help you with North, South, East and West.



Can you write the countries of the UK, spelling them correctly and starting each one with a capital letter?

Can you locate them on this blank map of the UK?


Extension Activity

Create your own weather forecast for tomorrow’s weather. Use the weather symbols to show the weather on the map. Then write your own weather forecast using the writing template. Maybe you could even video yourself being a weather forecaster.

Are you ready for another exciting story? Make sure that you are sitting nice and comfortably.
