For your literacy this week we are working through a new 'Talk4writing' pack called Brian Bear's Picnic by Alison Cooper. 

I hope you have all now read the story on the first few pages.  If not, read it today.  Then continue working through activities by completing  two new pages from the same booket.   

We will continue to work through these until Friday. 

Click on the link below to go straight to the activity pack. 


You also know that we are currently celebrating LONDON VIRTUAL MATHS WEEK.

There are several things we are taking part in.  Please remember to complete your SUMDOG Challenge (1000 questions)


Did you manage to build your Tower Yesterday?  How tall was it?

This is a project for the London Maths week.  

Today we extend the challenge further.  What is the tallest tower you can make?

Do you think if you had 20 pieces of paper you could double the height?

Can you compete with someone else at home to make the tallest tower with 5 pieces of paper each?

Take five A4 pieces of paper. Doesn’t matter what is on them – dig out the recycling!

Using any folding or rolling technique you like, make the tallest tower you can.

No other resources are allowed and it must be freestanding! 

You can have a look at a picture of one tower by opening this link below. 




This week are  listening to the audio story - Zero G by Dan Wells

Click on the link below to continue listening.  Try to listen to 2 chapters each day.   

Then you can discuss them and retell the story so far to someone else in your family.




In today’s lesson, we will be learning about sound.

We will be specifically looking at how our bodies allow us to hear sounds.

We will then learn that not everyone has the ability to hear things and we will look at what deaf people may use to hear or communicate.
