Friday 15th January

Good Morning Ruby Class!

Congratulations everyone! You have made it through your first full week of home learning and I am so proud of each and every one of you! Your work is absolutely fantastic and I can see that you are all trying your best. Well done! Here is your Friday message...


Today, we will begin by reading the next part of our story 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me'. 

Part Four

I really hope that you are enjoying the story so far!
We will continue reading it next week!


Learning Objective: I can compare numbers.


Today, we will be moving on to our next lesson on comparing numbers. Follow this link to BBC Teach and complete the session.



Just like yesterday, you have two worksheets to complete.


Learning Objective: I can write a setting description.


You have all been incredible in your English work this week and have accomplished so much! Let's take a quick look at our learning so far...


  • On Monday, I asked you to create a list of adjectives describing Antarctica.
  • On Tuesday, you turned these adjectives into sentences that describe Antarctica.
  • Yesterday, you included lots more information about the physical features of Antarctica and described what each one looks like.


Today, we are going to be using all of the sentences that we have written to create our own setting description about Antarctica!


Put all of your sentences together to write a setting description about Antarctica. I have also attached a writing template for you to write your setting description on if you would like to use it. Remember to include everything we have learnt this week and all of your edits and improvements!

Good luck! I can't wait to see them!


Learning Objective: I understand what a split digraph is and can read and write the split digraph u_e.


Today we will be looking at our final split digraph u_e. 
Geraldine the Giraffe has been such a huge hit with you all! So here she is again...

Geraldine the Giraffe learns u-e

Here are the activities that I would like you to complete today...



  • I would like to you to read the words on the worksheet containing the split digraph u_e. Can you tell which words are real and nonsense? Fill in your key with a different colour for real and nonsense words then colour in the correct boxes. 
  • Practice reading all of our split digraphs in this worksheet and match each caption with the correct picture.

Learning Objectives:


  • I can find collections of colour.
  • I can use materials to construct.

Design and Technology

  • I can evaluate what I have made. 

Today we are going to be making our models! I hope that you are all excited! All of your design plans look amazing and I can’t wait to see your completed models! 

Before we do this, I would like us to have a look at what colours we can use to make our models. Watch this video to find out more...

Hot and Cold Colours

Then there are three activities that I would like you to complete this afternoon...


Activity One

Create a poster showing ‘cold colours’ and label them. There is an example below. Then pick which colours you would like to include in your model. Your cold colour poster will come in really handy for next weeks art lesson too! So keep it safe!

Activity Two

Now it is time to make your model! Make sure that you have got all of the materials and tools that you need before you begin. Then let your imagination run wild! Remember to take a photograph of your model and send it to me. I am so excited to see all of them! 

If you are still unsure how to make your model, take another look at some ideas and examples here...

Activity Three

Once you have completed your model I would like you to evaluate it! Answer the following questions...

  • What went well?
  • What challenges did you face?
  • How did you overcome these challenges?
  • What would you improve?
