Please practice the spellings that were sent home on Friday. If you have done this, you may practice the words below that use the -ed suffix.






Can you think of any other words that have the -ed suffix. 

I will be delivering a phonics lesson at 9.30. Please make sure your child has paper and a pen for the spellings part of the lesson.


Today we are moving onto time and how to read a clock. The questions are asking the children to read the time to the hour. Understanding that the small hands points to the hour and the big hand the minutes. I will be delivering a full demonstration and lesson at 10.30 to help the children understand the topic. 

Telling the Time for Kids: O'Clock Times

Learn how to read analog and digital clocks with this video! You will learn where the minute hand goes and how to tell what time it is by looking at the hour...


This week we have been on holiday in Antarctica; the coldest, windiest and driest continent on earth. Today, I would like you to write a letter home from Antarctica about your holidays. In the letter I would like you to include:

  • What have you been doing?

  • What have you seen? Animals and wildlife?

  • What is the weather like?

  • Have you had a good time or not?



Dear orange crayon,

I have had the best holiday in Antarctica. Yesterday I went on a huge ship sailing through the sparkling blue sea. I saw the Northern Lights twinkling in the sky and it was beautiful. Last week I went polar bear spotting. They looked so cute and cuddly but you have to be careful because they can be dangeours. The weather has been freezing, I have had to wear a woolly hat and my snow boots every day!........


The above example includes lots of elements; capital letters, full stops, adjectives, connectives (because/and/so) and it is all written in the past tense. Please try to write atleast half a page today, I am sure you have lots of ideas as we have learnt so much about Antarctica.


This week we have been focussing on Antarctica, last week we looked at North and South America. Today I would like you to choose a continent and research that continent, finding out:

  • What can you do there?

  • what can you eat?

  • What animals might you see?

  • What do you need to pack in your suitcase?

Once you have research your continent, your challenge is to create a holiday brochure or leaflet with pictures and information about your continent of choice.
