Good Morning Children and Your Parents laugh


How are you all this morning? We hope you are all keeping well. How did you get on with your English work yesterday? We hope you are enjoying the topic work and finding it interesting to learn about seaside holidays from the past. Well, today you will be very excited as we are going to be making some puppets for the theatre that you made last week.

Today’s phonic story is called The Cattery”. We are learning to identify different ways of spelling /shun/.

Activity 1 – Circle the cats with the correct spelling. How many words containing -tion can you think of?

You are now going to write the 'Maths' section of the report for your teacher. Use these question prompts to make notes on a piece of paper. Read your sentences back to check that they make sense. Double check that you have used capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Once you have checked your draft copy, write your sentences neatly on your final sheet.


  • What is your teacher really good at? Are they good at addition/subtraction? Are they good at naming shapes? Are they good at measuring the weight of objects? Are they good at reciting their times tables? Are they good at telling the time? Are they good at modelling how to solve problems? Are they good at counting? Can you think of anything else?
  • What do they enjoy doing?
  • How does your teacher make Maths fun and interesting? Do they provide lots of practical resources?
  • Is there anything they could do to improve?


Here is Miss Sykes' report for Mrs Stansfield:

Mrs Stansfield is a super mathematician! She is so enthusiastic when teaching Maths; she really does love it! She is amazing at reciting her times tables and can work them out so quickly. When I am stuck on any Maths problems, Mrs Stansfield always explains how to work them out and shows me exactly what to do. She always makes Maths fun by providing lots of resources to use; I love using multilink and playing games.

Next Step: To keep testing me on my timetables and pushing me to get my badges!


Lunch time:  You must all be ready for lunch by now.


Guided Reading:

Re-read the text.
