Good Morning Ruby Class!

Here is your Thursday message...

Thursday morning message...

Let's begin by reading the next part of our story, 'The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me' by Roald Dahl.

Part Three


Learning Objective: I am beginning to edit my own work. 


So far this week we have written some amazing sentences all about Antarctica! We have now included lot's of adjectives to describe Antarctica and I have been so impressed with all the writing you have been sending me. Well done! 


Today, our English lesson will be split into two parts. First of all, we will be looking at how we can edit and improve our sentences by using capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. Take a look here...

English Part One

Once you have watched this video, complete the first activity that I have outlined below...


Activity One

Read the sentences that you have already written, then edit and improve them. Make sure that you include:

  • Capital Letters
  • Finger Spaces
  • Full Stops
  • Correct Spellings


Once you have done this, move on to the next part of our English lesson by watching this video...

English Part Two

...and then move on to our next activity.


Activity Two

Write some simple sentences describing the physical geographical features of Antarctica. Use the sentence starters from the video to help you. 


Extension Activity

Can you continue to edit and improve your sentences? 

Following the same process from 'Activity One', I would like you to check that each of your sentences have capital letters, finger spaces and full stops as well as the correct spellings. You could then look at improving the adjectives that you have used by using a thesaurus, or adding more than one adjective to each of your sentences using the conjunction 'and'.


Learning Objective: I can compare groups of objects.

We are going to explore in further detail how to compare different numbers using counting. You will need your number lines from yesterday. Follow this link to BBC Teach and complete the lessons:

Practice your skills by completing the following worksheets. 

Don't forget to use your number line to help you!


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


Today, we will be continuing our work on split digraphs by focusing on the sound o_e. Let's go back to Geraldine the Giraffe to find out more...

Geraldine the Giraffe learns o-e

Today, there are two activities to complete...


  • Find and write the o_e words on this worksheet then colour the o_e pictures in. There are three difficulties to choose from. 
  • Then practice reading real and nonsense words that have the split digraph o_e. 

Extension Activity

  • Head over to Phonics Play and practice reading real and nonsense words containing all of the split digraphs you have learnt so far.


Learning Objective: I can move my body in different ways in response to music.


I hope that you all enjoyed our PE session last week! 
I loved seeing all of your pictures and videos! They are all fantastic and it looks like you have all had lots of fun!


Today, we will be moving on to our next Dance session where you can find out more about the creatures that live in snowy landscapes like Antarctica. You will explore how they move and follow their experiences. Follow this link to BBC Teach...


Turn the music up and have lots of fun! 


Don't forget that Joe Wicks has brought back his daily PE sessions as well! You can find his sessions here...
