Parents, I want to thank you for your hard work during this time and to note that we do not wish to cause additional stress to complete the work that has been set. This is a time that children will greatly benefit from all the other things you are doing too. If you are unsure about anything to do with the learning being given, please get in touch. If you are unable to complete a piece of work, please do not feel the pressure to do so. Learning new skills, finding a new interest, keeping active and getting creative will really enhance their experience- and they will look back fondly on the time you spent together.
I look forward to seeing all the exciting things you have been up to.
Keep a growth mindset and stay safe.

Last week's task was to write a postcard. This one is going to Saskia's grandma in Czech Republic.
Great to see the enrichment activities you have been up to Mia.
Great job in completing Monday's lesson. A super start to the week Saskia.
Oops we jumped ahead. Due to the differences in term dates, White Rose’s resources do not match up with our term dates. This is why you cannot access the Friday Problem lesson yet. Due to this, we advise you recap the fraction topic to ensure a solid understanding. These can be found under week 1 and week 2 of the White Rose resources. Most children will have missed some of week 1’s learning due to absence and all students missed week 2 due to the school closures. Completing Maths work, daily, will greatly benefit your children.
This week you need to complete the fifth lesson from last week’s focus of adding ‘er’ and ‘est’ to words ending in ‘y’ and then continue to the new focus of the spelling ‘el’ saying /l/.
This week I have included a variety of activities. I would like you to complete your spellings lesson on Monday. Remember to complete a spell check on Friday after practicing your spellings each day.
This week we are looking at the suffixes ‘ly’ and ‘less’. Look through the PowerPoint and practice the words. The additional resources are extra activities.
This week I would like you to look at present and past tense. Both in the simple form and progressive. I have included two PowerPoints, two activities and two Twinkl links to short videos that explains these two forms of tenses (you can sign up to Twinkl for free during school closures).
Look at the simple present and past tense using the PowerPoint and activity.
This video can be used to introduce the focus.
If you are unable to play this video then please use the Bitesize link.
Look at progressive past and progressive present tenses using the PowerPoint and the activity.
Use this video to help introduce the focus.

This week I would like you to look at the story The Cautious Caterpillar. I have included a comprehension activity – remember to pick one chilli challenge – and the link to an audio eBook you may want to access.
Using the story The Cautious Caterpillar and your own knowledge, create a lifecycle for a caterpillar. I have included a worksheet that can help you create one. This can be in any medium, such as a poster or pictures/ model, but must have a written aspect.
Writing challenge - Can you write a setting description for this picture from the story?
Use the bingo card after you have written your description. How many can you mark off?
Include spellings from this week
Use the correct tense throughout your work
Use expanded noun phrases with interesting adjectives
Include capital letters for starting a sentence and for proper nouns
Use conjunctions to link words and phrases
Include words with our phonics focus
Can you edit your work to improve it?
Here are some additional resources. They are not mandatory.
This week we are looking at the differences between wild flowers and the flowers we may plant in our gardens. Work through the PowerPoint and then create your own garden using the worksheet.
The Pentecost story that you read last week tells us about the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit helped Jesus’ friends to go and spread God’s love.
We are all trying extra hard to be kind and loving at the moment. Could you think of something kind that you could do to show your family that you love them?
If you draw, write about or take a picture of your kindness, ask you grown up to send it to the class email address and I teacher will post them on the website.
