Wednesday 3rd 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 you have 3 new chapters to listen to:

Chapter 6 – Brown Paint read by Sam

Chapter 7 – Grandma Gets the Medicine read by Mrs Brammer

Chapter 8 – The Brown Hen read by Mrs Crombleholme

You can complete today’s activity after Chapter 7 if you wish.


Today’s work is all about similes. Similes compare 2 things using ‘like’ or ‘as’:

‘he was as brave as a lion’,

‘she was as white as a ghost’,

‘he slept like a log’.


In Chapter 7 Roald Dahl uses a simile when describing what happened to Grandma when she had the medicine to help you imagine what it was like. Read the ‘Extract from Grandma gets the Medicine’ below and see if you can spot the simile. If you can, underline it in the text.


Then have a go at the ‘Sassy Similes’ sheet by coming up with your own similes to describe Grandma. You could use some of these examples to get you started:

She was as small as…

She was mean like…


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. Today’s lesson is all about converting between seconds, minutes and hours. Click the link below for the video. You will only need a pencil, paper and a ruler.


4) Topic – French


In French today we will be revising our colours. For the lesson you will need some colouring pencils, felt tips or paint and the activity from the resource section called ‘French Colours’. Begin by watching the song in the link below. It will introduce you to the colours and pronounce them correctly for you. After that, complete the ‘French Colouring’ activities 


5) Forest School


Miss Quick has set you a forest school challenge all to do with sculptures. Open up the ‘Forest school’ activity to find the instructions – enjoy!


6) It’s that time again… Crazy dancing during zoom so get practicing your moves!
