Good Morning Ruby Class!

Welcome to a brand new day of home learning. I hope that you are all enjoying your week so far! Let's find out what we are doing today in our Thursday morning message...


Still image for this video
To begin, let's head back to our class story 'The Enchanted Wood' by Enid Blyton. We are on to Chapter Nine...

Chapter Nine

...come back for the next part tomorrow!


Learning Objective: I can compare numbers within 50. 


We are moving on from comparing objects to comparing numbers within 50. Watch this video from White Rose Maths to find out more...

25.02.21 - Compare numbers within 50

Here is the school's 'Calculation Policy' to support this week's learning in Maths. 


Please complete the worksheets below by comparing numbers within 50. 

Parents: There are lots of useful tips and questions on these worksheets to help you support and extend your child's learning at home. 


Learning Objective: I can answer questions about a text. 


As you know, our whole school is looking at the story of 'Malala's Magic Pencil'. We have been making predictions about the text and what the character of Malala might be like. Yesterday, we finally got to listen to the story! If you would like to listen to it again, watch it here...

Malala's Magic Pencil

I really hope that you enjoyed the story of Malala! 

We will be doing some tasks, based on Malala and her story, over the next week. Today, I would like us to begin with a really fun activity!


Activity One

Imagine that you have a magic pencil, just like Malala. What would you draw?

Activity Two

Write a description of what you would draw and explain your reasons why. 


Learning Objective: I am learning about sound families. 


This week we are learning about sound families and will focus on a different sound family each day.


Activity One

Explain to an adult or sibling what a sound family is. 


Today, we will be focusing on the 'g' sound family. Let's take a look...



Activity Two

Practice reading each word, from the sound family poster, out loud. 


Activity Three

Write each of the words in a sentence, then practice reading them out loud. 


Don't forget to keep practicing all of your phonics at Phonics Play. You can recap all of our alternative spellings and pronunciations by playing the games 'Cheeky Monkeys' or 'Acorn Adventures'. 


Learning Objective: I understand how to stay safe at home. 


Our homes are places where we feel safe! But did you know that there are some hazards that you can find in your home? Hazards are something that could be harmful. It is important for us to understand things that might be harmful so that we know how to stay safe. 


Activity One

To begin today's lesson, I would like you to look at the pictures below. Each pictures shows a room that you would find in your own house. However, each picture has some hazards! How many can you spot?

It may be helpful to discuss each picture with an adult or sibling. When you have finished, watch this video to find out more...

Staying Safe at Home

Activity Two

We have explored potential hazards that we might find in our own homes and learnt how we can be safe. In the activity sheet, below, I would like you to write one safety tip for each room in the house using what you have learnt in today's lesson! You can also draw pictures if you wish to. 



Learning Objective: I can identify and name some garden plants.


In yesterday's topic lesson, we looked at wild plants. Today, we are going to be looking at garden plants! Is there a difference between wild and garden plants? What could the difference be? You may wish to discuss your ideas with an adult or sibling. Then, when you are ready to begin, watch the video below...

In the Garden


Draw a beautiful garden! This could be your own garden, or you can design your own! Fill your garden with lovely flowers, using the 'Garden Plants Sheet' and label them with their names. Have fun!

Just for fun...

Take a closer look at some garden plants! Use a magnifying glass to help you. 

You may have some of the plants we have looked at in your own garden or there could be somewhere you can visit in your local area which has some of these plants too. I have also included photographs, of each garden plant, below. You could look closer at each of them just by zooming in on your device! Which is your favourite garden plant? Draw a detailed, close-up picture of it, including the plant's name.
