Good morning again 1S - for the final time this week. laugh


It feels strange having a bank holiday on a Friday but you all know why, because of the special VE work that we've been doing all week.


I hope you have a fab bank holiday with your family and I am hoping for the sun to make an appearance! Please send me any pictures or videos of what you get up to.


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


Here are some activities to complete today, then I will speak to you again on Monday:


Phase 5 Sentences 5b. You will need to log in to access this game.


Username: march20

Password: home



Phase 5


Then scroll down to ‘Phase 5b Interactive Resources - Weeks 5-7’ and find ‘Sentences’.

You are going to read some sentences using alternative pronunciations of graphemes. Remember, this means that some of the sounds are pronounced differently in different words. I would like you to read the sentences under ‘Week 7’ today.


Please continue to practise your ‘04.05.20 Spellings’ for our test on Monday.


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 5 Day 4 today. Did you get 4/4 correct?


Warm up: Can you draw tens and ones (using sticks and stones) for the following numbers: 32, 55, 68, 98, 42?

Here is an activity you could do tomorrow. Click this link and scroll down to ‘Friday Challenge’:

Break time

Time for a break! Yoga: Space Monkey


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.

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


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?

Have a great Bank Holiday weekend! laugh


Speak to you on Monday.
