Good morning 1S! laugh


How are you today? I hope you had a good day yesterday. How are your descriptions of the Moon coming along? They must be looking really good by now. Wasn't the RE work lovely? I hope it really helped you to appreciate our wonderful world, especially now when things are so difficult and we can't travel anywhere to see such lovely places.


In our Topic lessons this week, we're moving onto 'Science and Materials'. You can still keep going with any of these Zoom to the Moon challenges, though:

Please check the ‘Photos and videos of you and your work’ folder to see what your friends have been up to! There are lots of lovely pictures and videos.


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


Here are some activities to complete today:



Phase 5 Cheeky Chimps. 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 ‘Cheeky Chimps’.


Today we are going to focus on a letter having alternative pronunciations. I would like you to focus on the first row of letters: a, e, i, o, u. Read the word and decide how to pronounce the a, e, i, o, u, then drag the banana to the chimp on a word with the same pronunciation.


Please continue to practise your ‘27.04.20 Spellings’ for our test next week.


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 4 Day 2 today. Did you get 4/4 correct? There is also a Flashback at the start of your learning video, you can complete this too.


Warm up: Can you count backwards in 5s from 50 to 0?

Here is a problem to finish with:



Here’s my description after 3 days:


The Moon is a natural satellite that was created 4.5 billion years ago. It orbits the Earth and also rotates every 27 days. The moon is grey and white. You are not able to hear any sound on the moon because there is no air. Also, if you dropped two objects, like a heavy hammer and a light feather, they would land at the same time. As there is no air, there is no resistance. Everything and everybody would feel lighter on the Moon than they do on Earth. A person who weighs 60kg on Earth would only weigh 10 kilograms on the Moon because the Earth is 6 times bigger than the Moon. This makes the astronauts look like they are bouncing across the Earth’s surface. They wear protective suits and carry oxygen tanks so that they can breathe. The astronauts travelled across the Moon in a space buggy which looks like great fun and they left a US flag there.


Edit your description again. Remember to check for capital letters and full stops and make sure that every sentence makes sense. Make sure that your facts link together well.


Your final video clip is a NASA Tour of the Moon:


These questions will help you collect extra facts for your description.

This is your last chance to add to your Moon description. I can't wait to read them.

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


Yesterday you were asked to decide which book has been your favourite book to read so far and why. 


Today, I'd like you to write a Book Review of your favourite book.

I would recommend this book to...     because...


I'd love to see some of your book reviews if you can send me a photograph or even type them on an email to me.


David Walliams is reading a story each day. Here is the link:




Today we are going to identify a range of materials around us. Do you already know what a material is? Can you see any materials around your house now?


Read through this PowerPoint:

Here's part one of your task: 


Name the materials by filling in the missing letters and draw a picture of each material.




Now for part 2 of your task but you can choose how you would like to do this:


  • You could write 7 lists of objects from all around your home - even outside in your garden - that are made from each of the materials that you have drawn and labelled in Task 1.
  • You could collect lots of objects from around your home and sort them into groups depending on what they are made from. Photographs would be good evidence of this.
  • You could use post-it notes or little labels to identify the materials on a range of objects.

You might come up with your own idea. Share your work with me if you can.
