Good Morning Ruby Class!

Welcome to your last week of home learning before half term! Keep up the amazing work everybody. I am so proud of you! We have a really exciting week ahead of us as we are learning all about Arctic Explorers! We will also be beginning our brand new class story. Shall we find out what everyone voted for...?

Monday Morning Message and Book Vote Results!

Here it is! Our new class story ‘The Enchanted Wood’. It won with a huge 18 votes! Enjoy...

The Enchanted Wood: Chapter One

Come back tomorrow for chapter two!


Learning Objective: I can compare number sentences.


Today, we will be comparing number sentences. This is a skill that we are all familiar with! Just think of that "crocodile mouth". Don't forget that the crocodile is very greedy and always wants to eat the largest number! Find out more here...

08.02.21 - Compare number sentences


Complete the worksheet below by comparing numbers and number sentences up to 50!

Parents: Don't forget, that these worksheets include lots of helpful tips and questions to support and extend your child's learning at home. 


Learning Objectives:

  • I am beginning to plan a story.
  • I can write a list. 


This week, we have a brand new focus text 'The Great Explorer' by Chris Judge. 



Let's begin by reading the story...!

The Great Explorer

Today, we will be imagining that we are 'Arctic Explorers' and will begin to write our own adventure story. You can either do this by working through each activity with me on the video below. Or you can watch the video and complete the activities afterwards. You will need a pencil and some paper. When you are ready, let's begin...

English Monday

Follow the same process that I have used in the video to begin your own adventure story...

  • Activity One

Create a title for your story. This can be really simple! Think back to the title of our story 'The Great Explorer' and my own title from the video 'Mrs Cole the Explorer'. Write your title at the top of your paper and underline it. 

  • Activity Two

Draw a picture of yourself in your explorer outfit or take a photograph. Remember, it is very cold so you will need to be in warm clothes! If you need inspiration, take a look at Tom's outfit and mine as well!

  • Activity Three

Decide if you are going to the Arctic or Antarctica then think about why you might be going there. Remember, Tom went to find his father. Maybe you are going to rescue someone too? Or perhaps you are going to find something, just like me! Write a sentence explaining where you are going to and why.

  • Activity Four

Now think about what you will need to take with you on your arctic adventure. Write a list of items that you will need to pack. Include pictures or drawings if you want to. 


Learning Objective: I am learning about Phase 5 alternative spellings and pronunciations ('g' as 'j'). 


We are continuing our focus on Phase 5 alternative spellings and pronunciations. Today, we will be focusing on 'g' as 'j', which is also known as 'soft g'.  Find out more from Geraldine the Giraffe...

Geraldine the Giraffe learns 'soft g'


Practice reading out loud words with a 'soft g' and a 'hard g' (on the worksheet below) then sort them into two categories. You could do this by cutting the words out and gluing them on each poster, or by writing your own lists. 


Extension Activity

Choose two words from each category and write them in a sentence. Don't forget to make sure that your 'soft g' and 'hard g' words are spelt correctly and that you practice reading your sentences out loud!

Please keep practicing your phonics at Phonics Play! Alternative spellings and pronunciations can be found in the games 'Cheeky Monkeys' and 'Acorn Adventures'. They are FREE and FUN! Remember, practice makes perfect!


Learning Objective: I am learning about Christianity. 


Today, we are continuing our whole-school Christianity project. Follow this link to find out more...


Learning Objective: I am exploring and responding to different music. 


Last week, we listened to 'The Carnival of Animals' and had lots of fun guessing which piece of music represented which animal! You can listen to the song again here...

Carnival of the Animals - Camille Saint-Saƫns


Today, I would like you to create your own piece of music based on your own animal! Just follow these steps...


1. Choose an animal.

This could an animal from the song, or your own animal. Even a pet! Write the name of your animal and draw a picture of it.


2. Describe your animal. 

You can write a list of adjectives to describe your animal or write a sentence. 


3. Describe what your piece of music will sound like.

Use your adjectives to help you. If your animal is playful, your music will be too!


4. Create your own piece of music!

Now that you have decided what your music will sound like, have a go at creating it! Some of you may have instruments at home to help you, you can clap and I know that you all have beautiful singing voices to use! There are also some fun ideas to try at home...
