Hello!  How are you all?  We hope you all had a lovely weekend and managed to enjoy the sunshine! Did any of you see any snow?


Thank you for sending in photos of the things you have been doing at home, it’s so lovely to see all your faces!

Tuesday 26th January





Using the ‘ie’ words we started learning yesterday, can you put this sentence in the correct order?  

Write it in your yellow books.  


tie   Bunting    a     wore    smart    .


A good tip for this activity is to write each part of the sentence on a piece of paper and move into the correct order first, then copy it out!


Choose another word from your spelling list and write your own sentence.




Today we are going to change parts of the story of ‘Lost in the Museum’.

Think about who you would like as the main character. 

Are they going to be in a toy museum or somewhere else?

Where will the toys be hiding?


Have a look at how I have changed the story, and then click on the page below to take you to the activity.





Have you got a cake tin at home?!  Have a go at this activity with your dice:



Some of you have a reasoning pack so pick one of these to do today.  If you would like an extension then use Topmarks Hit the Button and practice bonds to 10 and 20 and doubles.

Then complete the ‘ie’ activity sheet in your phonics pack. 




Today watch the next White Rose video on finding a part.





Complete pages 37, 38 and 39 in your work booklet.






Today we are going to write our story.

You can choose how to do this! 

Option 1:

Using your plan from yesterday, write a sentence for each part of the story.  Remember to use adjectives to describe your characters, if you can!  Don't forget capital letters, full stops and finger spaces and use your sound mat to help with spellings.


Option 2:

Using your plan from yesterday, draw a picture to show each part of your story and write a caption underneath each one.  You can use the template below if you would like:


If you need more space for your writing you can use your yellow book to write the captions and cut out or draw your pictures.

This activity may take more than one day to complete so spread it out over the rest of the week if needed.  Encourage your child to sound out each word and don't worry if the words are not all spelt correctly.



Do you remember in the Autumn we took a photograph of the tree in the playground?  Can you remember what it looked like?

Have a look at the photo below to remind you.



I’ve taken another photo, look at how it has changed!  Which season are we in now?  What has happened to the leaves?



Do you remember we talked about trees that don’t lose their leaves?  What are they called? 

That's right, evergreen! And trees which do lose their leaves are called deciduous.


Have you got any trees near you which are deciduous and evergreen?


Listen to the song below:

Brainy Songs


Have a go at the activity below or draw a deciduous tree and an evergreen tree in your Yellow book.




We would like as many photos as possible of children doing the things they enjoy for our Mental Health Week next week (February 1st) - what makes you happy? What do you enjoy doing that makes you, you?

It is important to stay safe when online. The internet can be an exciting place to learn and have fun, but sometimes you might see something online that makes you feel worried, scared or sad.

If that happens, tell an adult you trust like a parent or a teacher, and they can help.

Watch the videos on ‘watching videos’ and read about ‘sharing personal information’ on Thinkuknow.

You could design a poster and send it into us to share.



Today we find out about a story in the Old Testament called the creation story.
