Thursday 4th March  

Good morning Sycamore class. 

Here are the activities I would like you to complete today.

I suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail photos of your work to me each day if you want.


1) English - Today is WORLD BOOK DAY!

We have a slightly different task for you today, but at some point during the day, try to listen to the next 3 chapters of George’s Marvellous Medicine:

Chapter 9 – The Pig, the Bullocks, the Sheep, the Pony and the Nanny Goat read by Mr Tupman

Chapter 10 – A Crane for Grandma read by Mrs Newman

Chapter 11 – Mr Kranky’s Great Idea read by Miss Quick


Your main task is all about Tom Fletcher (author and McFly star). Start by clicking on the ‘There’s a Wolf in your Book’ and read the extract aloud.


Then follow the link to the World Book Day website and watch Tom’s video all about Interactive Picture Books.


Then complete Tom’s challenge by coming up with your own character for a ‘Who’s in your Book?’ story. Decide who or what your character is and draw a picture of them. Then decide what adventure they could go on and write some sentences about it.


2) Maths


1. Spend 10-15 minutes on your Times Table Rock Star account. I’ve set your tables for you but let me know if you need to change it.


2. Open up the Power up activity and complete the challenges.


3. Open up the link below to follow today’s lesson on years, months and days and how to convert between them.

3)  Spellings


 Can you find your spellings that are hidden in the word search? Why don't you time yourself to see if you can beat your time next week?




Today is work book day so for today’s topic lesson I am asking you to make your own mini book on any topic that you like.


Start by watching the video tutorial on how to make a mini book out of A4 paper.


After that, choose your topic:

  • A story book
  • A fact book on something that interests you (e.g. plants, pandas, China)
  • An autobiography about you, or a biography about someone else.

Remember to use plenty of colour to capture the reader’s interest and also neat, clear handwriting.
