Good morning again 2S,


Have you done your Jo Wicks Workout this morning? I'm really impressed with myself for keeping up with these everyday. I can hold the plank for a long time now and I know that I am fitter and stronger than I was at the start of the lock down. I also really enjoy our daily walks. Yesterday I ordered an Ordnance Survey map of my local area so that we can discover new paths and trails. I can't wait for it to arrive! Where do you go for your daily walk? Have you seen the news about Spain? All Spanish children had to stay inside for over 40 days and last weekend was the first time that they have been allowed out for an hour a day. It makes you realise that our situation could be much worse, doesn't it?


If we were at school today, we would have been doing P.E. Can you plan some extra exercise into your day? Look in the Extra activities link on the 2S page for ideas or come up with one of your own. Lilia likes to do Just Dance and Georgia likes to do fitness challenges.


Here's the rest of today's work, but don't forget about the Zoom to the Moon activities and 'The Planets' song:



Can you correct the spellings in these sentences?


To finish my description, I added an interesting ending that included a question. You will need to add an ending to yours, too.


Here’s my full description of the Moon:

The Moon is a natural satellite that is 4.5 billion years old. It orbits the Earth and also rotates every 27 days. It is grey and white in colour and the surface is dusty and rocky with lots of craters. If you were on the Moon, you would not be able to hear any sound 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. It is possible to see where the visitors to the moon have been because they leave footprints and tyre tracks in the dust. The craters in the moon have been there for millions of years. Some were caused by meteors crashing into the Moon’s surface. In the middle of some of the craters there are huge mountains. The Moon is certainly a very interesting place. Would you like to visit?




Check your full description of the Moon.

Does it all link together? Have you added an ending? Did you include a question and use a question mark?



If you can, please take a photograph of your full description or even type it up so that you can send it to me by email. I would absolutely love to see your work.


As always, start with a page from the Flashbacks saved in the Maths folder. You should be on Week 4 Day 3. Click play to star the PowerPoint presentation and only reveal the answers when you're ready!

Do you need to look through the 5 minute PowerPoint again? Take care with 55, 50, 45 etc.

There are just 2 pages left to do in your Time Home Learning Pack:

Here's your Problems of the Day:


Last week you learnt about Tim Peake who was the most recent British astronaut to visit Space but do you know who the first British astronaut was? Today's Reading Comprehension task will tell you all about...her.

There are 3 different levels: easy, middle and tricky. The answers are all included, too. You can choose one or try two or three different levels.

Who was the first Briton in space?

In May 1991, Helen Sharman became the first Briton in space. The Soyuz TM-12 mission, which included Soviet cosmonauts Anatoly Artsebarsky and Sergei Krikale...

Tomorrow, we'll watch a video that has just been made this week. In the video, Helen Sharman talks about her experiences in Space including how it was similar to being isolated at home like we are now.

You'll have some questions to answer and some deep thinking to do on Friday, too.


Yesterday you named a range of different materials. I wonder how many different materials you found around your house...


I was in school yesterday with some children whose parents are key workers. Here are 4 of their collections:


What label is required on this image?

If you need a clue, it begins with f and has 6 letters. It was on yesterday's task.
Today we are going to look at the properties of materials. We can use a range of words to describe what materials are like. Have a look through this PowerPoint and discuss it:

Here are some more properties. Can you read all of these tricky Science words? Try and learn 5 new words from these lists:

Today your task is to collect a range of objects from around your house. Touch each object to see what it feels like. How many different words can you use to describe the object? Look back to remind yourself of the words you could use. Can you think of your own describing words? Fill in this table:

I would like you to group the objects you have used today by their properties.


Can you put all of the transparent objects together?

Can you put all of the flexible objects in one group?

Have you got a collection of smooth objects?


Take one property at a time as some objects could go in more than one group.


Perhaps you could take some photos like I did when I was in school. They'll need labels adding to them, too.


Story Time:

I have chosen a story for you to listen to. I hope you enjoy it.

Click on the link to listen to the story. and it will be a surprise!



See you tomorrow!
