Wednesday 3rd March

Good Morning Ruby Class!

Happy Wednesday! We are already half way through our last week of home learning! Keep up the fantastic work everybody! 

Don't forget that it is 'Fairtrade Fortnight'! If you haven't already done so, please follow this link to watch an assembly from Mrs Hales and complete some of the really fun fairtrade activities!

Let's head back to our class story 'The Enchanted Wood' by Enid Blyton. What will Joe, Beth and Frannie do next?

Chapter Thirteen

The next chapter of our story will be on Friday! Why? Because tomorrow is 'World Book Day!' and we have some very exciting activities to complete! 


Learning Objective: I can write an information text about Malala. 


For today's lesson, we will be using all of our research about Malala to write an information text about her.


Activity One

First of all, I would like you to draw a picture of Malala.

Here is a photograph of Malala that you can use to help you complete your picture. There are also lots of other photographs in the videos and websites from yesterday's lesson, which I have included below. 



Activity Two

Using your research on Malala, write sentences about her including lots of the information we have found out. Do this underneath, or next to your picture of Malala. Don't forget to include capital letters, finger spaces and full stops. 

If you are still unsure on what information you would like to include in your writing, here are some useful websites and the videos from yesterday's lesson...

Learning Objective: I can count in 5s. 


Today, we will be moving on from counting in 2s and try counting in 5s! Again, today's lesson is all about practice. To begin, let's watch this video from White Rose Maths...

03.03.21 - Count in 5s activity

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.


To practice counting in 5s, I would like you to complete the tasks from the video...


Activity One

Can you find anything in your home that you can count in 5s? Take a photograph and send it to me!

Activity Two

Count in 5s forwards and backwards to 50 with someone in your household. 

Activity Three

Colour and count in 5s on a number grid up to 50. You can use the same number grid from Monday's lesson, just make sure that you use a different colour! Do you notice a pattern?


Extension Activity

If you would like more practice counting in 5s, have a go at this Activity Sheet...

We will continue looking at counting in 5s tomorrow!


Learning Objective: I am learning about sound families. 

Today we are focusing on the ‘r’ Sound Family. Let’s take a look...


‘wr’ is an alternative spelling that we have not focused on yet, so let’s find out more from our favourite Geraldine the Giraffe!

Geraldine the Giraffe learns silent w


Match each picture to the correct word with the ‘wr’ spelling and ‘r’ sound.

Extension Activity

Choose three words from the Activity Sheet with the ‘wr’ spelling and ‘r’ sound then write them in a sentence. Don’t forget that silent ‘w’! And remember to practice reading your sentences out loud. 


Learning Objective: I am developing my agility, balance and co-ordination skills.


Let's do some PE with Joe! Watch this video and complete the workout. Why not get your family involved too?!

Art/Design and Technology

Learning Objective: I can draw an observational drawing of a natural object.


Last week, we each chose a natural object and created a mini-model of it. These models were fantastic! Today, we are going to be looking at our natural objects in more detail. You will need a pencil and some paper. Take a look at this video to find out more...

Observational Drawing


Draw an observational drawing of a natural object by following these four steps...

1. Choose a natural object to make a drawing of. Look at your object carefully.

2. What shape is your object? Feel your object with your fingers. Draw this shape on your paper to make the outline.

3. Look closely at the surface of your object. Find all the little lines, bumps, wrinkles, spikes and curves. Put these in your drawing too.

4. when you have finished, look at your object more carefully... use a magnifying glass if you have one. Can you see any details that you have missed?


Take your time and make sure to get all the details in your drawing. When you have finished, don’t forget to send me a picture. I can’t wait to see them!

Here are some ‘Top Tips’ to help you!

Just for fun...

Make a magic stick wand! You will need a stick, from your garden or local area, and then you can use anything you like to turn it into a wand... paint, pipe cleaners, felt-tips or even leaves! Here are some examples...
