Good Morning Ruby Class!

It is our last day of home learning! Congratulations to everybody for your fantastic work over the last few weeks. You have all done amazing and I can't wait to see you all on Monday!! Here is our LAST morning message... 

Our last day of home learning!

Here is our class story 'The Enchanted Wood' by Enid Blyton. This is my favourite part! We're about to meet the Saucepan Man...

Chapter Fourteen

...I think the Saucepan Man is very lost! What will Mother say?! We will continue reading our story all together in class on Monday!

PSHE and Wellbeing

Learning Objective: I am learning about feelings. 


Last week, we began looking at different feelings by reading a story called 'The Colour Monster' by Anna Llenas. 



If you would like to read the story again, just watch this video...

The Colour Monster

Today, we are going to begin by discussing our own feelings. 


Activity One

Play the 'Emotions Board Game!'

With someone in your household, roll a die and move your game piece that number of squares. Read the emotion written in the square and say a time when you have felt this emotion. Can you also explain why? 


Parents: This is a fantastic opportunity for your child to discuss how they are feeling and why. Try and encourage them to explain why they feel that way and begin to explore strategies they can use when they are feeling that way. We will look at this in a little more detail in 'Activity Two'.

Activity Two

I hope that you had lots of fun playing that game and that you were able to discuss a time when you felt each of the emotions. Now, we are going to look at what we can do when we feel some of the emotions from the board game by completing the Activity Sheet below...

Our wellbeing is really important! Now more than ever. We are going to continue looking at our wellbeing in class and will begin looking in more detail at strategies we can use when we are feeling each emotion... and also things we should avoid doing! 


Learning Objective: I can count in 5s. 


Today, we are going to continue looking at counting in 5s. To begin, let's watch this video from White Rose Maths...

05.03.21 - Count in 5s

This is the school's 'Calculation Policy' to support this week's learning in Maths. We are particularly focusing on the 'counting in multiples' column this week. As always, if you have any questions regarding your child's learning please do not hesitate to get in touch. 



Count on 5s to complete the Activity Sheet below. 

This brings us to the end of our unit on 'Numbers to 50'! Well done everybody, your Maths work this term has been amazing. Next week, we will begin a brand new topic in Maths and it is really exciting! 

Guided Reading

Learning Objective: I can plan my own story about Doris the Loris. 


Last week, we read the story 'Doris the Loris'. Here is that story again...
