Good Morning Class 1/2A and Parent laugh


I hope you are all well this morning. How did you get on with your topic work yesterday? Did you all manage to enjoy the sunny weather?  I hope you enjoying the English work on poetry linked to our topic work. It was my daughter’s birthday yesterday and we had a family celebration in the evening. She got lots of presents, cards and flowers and was feeling very lucky!!! Her friends organised a supervised party for her on zoom, so she could enjoy the party atmosphere and talk to her friend all the way from India. It’s amazing how we can use technology to connect with our friends and family. My Mum and Dad have family living in Pakistan so they are able to Face Time and talk to their families which is really good especially when you are missing your family.

Maths Activities:

This links with the arrays work yesterday. Read the instructions carefully and I'm sure that you'll whizz through both pages.









Here is your problem of the day.



If you need a clue, work out how much they have altogether then half it to get you started.

This is a multi-step problem.

This 'Hit the Button' game is brilliant as there are so many activities that link to the 2 x table:

Ready for Super Movers Level 1




Today you are going to read three more poems about spring, two of which can be sung to well-known tunes.

Think about which is your favourite.







My favourite poem is __________________________________. I chose this one because ___________________________


I would now like you to write out one of these poems (or you could choose from the poems that we have done on Monday or Tuesday) in your best handwriting. You could then perhaps give it or send it to someone in your family to cheer them up.  You might even like to make it into a card.

Top tips:

Leave clear spaces between words.

Sit the writing on the lines with the descenders (tails) hanging down.

Make sure tall letters are tall enough.

Here is a border if you would like to use it, or you could make your own with little pictures that match your poem.



Lunchtime: Am sure you are ready for lunch.


Guided Reading


Let’s look at the next part of the story and see if your predictions were correct. You can listen to the story from the beginning again if you like. Click on the video once you are ready. Stop listening at 3.19.


The Smeds and The Smoos

Mr Donnelly reads the Smeds and the Smoos

You can pause the story at any time to answer the questions. There is also a fun puzzle to complete at the end! Here is your task:




Today we are going to do some Art work. We are going to create a picture of Castle Hill during a specific season. Remember, we have already created a painting of Castle Hill in school when we had a visit from local artist, Roger Davies.


Have a look at these photographs of Castle Hill. Which season does each picture represent? How do you know? What can you see? How does the picture make you feel?






Your task is to create a picture of Castle Hill during your chosen season. You can use any plain paper. Focus on sketching the outline of the Castle, then carefully add the detail. You can colour your picture using coloured pencils, felt tips, paint, crayons or any resources you have. It would be lovely to see a photo of your completed creation!


Story Time:

I have chosen another stories. Click on the video when you are ready.


Snappsy The Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) read by David Harbour

Snappsy the alligator is having a normal day when a pesky narrator steps in to spice up the story. Is Snappsy reading a book ... or is he making CRAFTY plans...

Please send me some pictures of your amazing art work.

I hope you have a fab day and I shall see you tomorrow.


Bye for now.

Love Mrs Ahmad XXX wink
