Morning message!!

Still image for this video

Hello everyone!


Hope you enjoyed learning some Bhangra dance moves yesterday!

Challenge of the day!




Do you believe in magic?

Can you do a magic trick?


We are now consolidating Phase 4 of our Phonics learning.

Your child should recognise all the Phase 2, 3 and 4 tricky words and please still practise recognising digraphs/trigraphs within words. They should also be able to say letter names out of order.

If you feel that your child still needs more practise with Phase2/3 please re-visit the previous weeks learning and try some other games on the suggested websites on our front class page.

Alphabet Song

Challenge - pause video when all the letters are on screen. Point to a letter and ask your child the letter name.

Kim is going to help us to read long words. These can also be known as compound words. Compound words are formed when two or more words are put together to form a new word with a new meaning

You say this sentence and your child writes it down. Look out for tricky words and sound out each word.


The  handbag  has  a  long  zip.


Challenge 1 - if your child can write this sentence easily add in some describing words e.g. The plastic handbag...

Challenge 2 - Can they write another sentence about the handbag?


I can recognise odd and even numbers

Even Number Song

This song reviews the concepts of even numbers (and helps teach the fact that all even numbers can be 'split in half'). Pause the video to ask your child if the number is odd or even.

Play this splat game to practise recognising odd and even numbers.

Choose the level to challenge your child.


I can recall the general aspects of an autobiography.

Before listening or reading the story talk with your child about what they remember.

"Malala's Magic Pencil" by Malala Yousafzai (read by Jeannette Wilt, DSEA Treasurer)

"Malala's Magic Pencil" by Malala Yousafzai (read by Jeannette Wilt, DSEA Treasurer)

 After reading:

• Why is the title a good title for the book/story? If you had to give it a different title, what would be another good title for it?

 •  What  was Malala's problem? Did it get solved? How did Malala try to solve the problem?

• What happened because of the problem?

• Why do you think the author wrote this?

• What is the most important point that the author is trying to make in his/her writing?

I can write a simple sentence for a thought bubble.

We have previously written simple sentences for speech bubbles.

Today we are writing a simple sentence for a thought bubble.

Explain that the thought bubble shows what the character is 'thinking' and differs from a speech bubble because it looks like a 'cloud'. 



Fairtrade Fortnight Assembly

Let's listen to this presentation that will tell us a bit more about Fairtrade Fortnight from Mrs Hales.


I can locate Pakistan on on a world map.


Take this opportunity to have a look at a globe or atlas and help them to first locate England and then Pakistan on the map.

Can your child locate any other countries?

Challenge-Can you find out what the Pakistan flag looks like?
