Guided Reading - live on Teams at 10.30am

We're going to think about our film 'The Wishgranter' today to give us some more clues. When the coins get stuck in the machine, The Wishgranter gets his emergency kit which includes dandelions, a wish bone and a shooting star machine. He uses these to try and help the man and woman have their wish granted. However, it doesn't totally go to plan! Today, I'd like you to think about something you would wish for. Write it on a wish slip and then I want you to imagine that you have gone to the well in the film and thrown a coin in but it's got stuck. What do you think The Wishgranter might have in his emergency kit to make your wish come true? Fill these in in his emergency kit below and explain why you chose each one.

RSHE - anytime

Continuing to think about our mental health, today I'd like you to choose 2 of the 3 following activities to have a go at (do all 3 if you want!). These will all allow you to think about your mental health and how to look after it to keep it healthy - remember it is not just about our physical health (especially at the moment), but is also about our minds!

Handwriting - anytime 

Follow this link for today's handwriting and spelling video and accompanying activity. 


Please click here to access the spelling test. For each question, click the link to listen to me say the word. Then, you need to type the spelling into the box. It doesn't matter if it starts with a capital letter or not but make sure there are no spaces at the start or end of the word or else it will mark it incorrect. Once you have finished, press submit and your score will show at the top. This then comes straight through to me so I will be able to see what you got! If you can't hear the words or have any technical issues, let me know and we can look into it!

Writing - live on Teams at 1pm

Today, we're going to write your build up and problem to 'The Wishgranter'. In the live lesson, we'll have a go at writing one together which we could add to mine. Today, I want you to try and use some fronted adverbials. We mentioned them previously this half term but we'll go through them again in the live lesson. Then, have a go at generating some fronted adverbials from scenes in the movie before writing the next part to the story and try and use some to make the beginning of your sentences more interesting - don't use one for every sentence because that will be too many. Remember to refer back to your story map from Monday to make sure you have all of the key elements, and you can watch the film again if you need to on Monday's page.



Maths - live on Teams at 9.15am

Today, we're going to look at calculations where we need to make lots of different exchanges on different digits. As with everything we've done so far this week, I'll go through lots of examples on the live lesson and pop a video down here as well. Then, have a go at the workbook activities below.

Times Table Challenge - can you learn the words to this song?
