Next read the story stopping at key points;

  • When the whale says ‘Come sail with me’ and
  • When the whale is beached

and ask them to predict what will happen next, focusing on the snail’s decisions and choices:

Should he have gone with the whale?

What would the other snails have said to him?

Would you go if you were him?

What could the snail do to help the whale?

Why was he so determined to help?

What would you do if you were the snail?

How will the story end?


Read to the end of the story.

Today in music you will be using the BBC Teach Ten Pieces Tasters webpage again. Remember using it back in January when you watched the video about Ravi Shankar playing the sitar then the video by Mahtab Hussein and had a go at capturing the ideas of raga and tala (learned in the previous video) using your hands, art materials and a camera ?  I got some lovely photos for our gallery of your work relating to this. Well done!

This time I would like you to scroll down to the next activity 

Write a rhyming couplet and turn it into a work of art with writer and artist Angry Dan.

and have a go....  I look forward to seeing how you get on.




We are going to learn a shortened version of Snail and the Whale this week ready to write our own version based on the story next week. 

Read the shortened version attached and make up some actions to help you remember the story. Can you read it a couple of times, enough to be able to tell the story to an adult in your house?


Finally, have ago at drawing your own snail using the link and instructions below.

Draw your own snail




Can you look at the different times below and match them to the events

Hometime              9 o’clock                          12 o’clock                        go to school

half past 10,          lunchtime                       half past 3                            playtime






Now using the teaching clock link , discuss all the different parts of the clock, minute hand, hour hand, face, numbers. Ask how many minutes in an hour? How many minutes between each number?

Next, have a go at making , different times using o'clock, half an hour, quarter past and quarter to. 

If confident use the clock to count around in 5's and talk about times which are  5,10,20,25 past the hour and 25,20,10,5 to the hour. How are these different to times which are o'clock? Half past? etc.

Talk about how O'clock, Half past, Quarter past, Quarter to times are displayed in digital form. Can you see a pattern? 

Complete the activity below if you are able to.



Today we are thinking about Lent and what it means to Christians. Read the powerpoint to find out all about this special time for Christians. Then choose an activity to complete from the choices below.






Read the shortened version again. can you now read the story without looking at the text?

Next, draw a text map for each part of the story. Remember you  do not need to draw a picture for every word. Take a look at our example to help you get started.

finally, read the story from your text map. Does it make sense? 




Watch the clip from maths shed 



Ask how many minutes in an hour, how many seconds in a minute? etc

Recap on, days of the week, months of the year, do you know them all and in order?

Ask questions to check knowledge, such as:

How many hours are there in a full day? How many minutes are in an hour and a half? How could we calculate this? Could we count in half an hours?

How many half an hours are in one hour? How many half an hours will there be in two hours?

Can you draw your own clock, starting from midnight show every hour on the clocks for a full day, start with 12, 1, 2, etc, what happens when you get to lunch time? discuss how there are 24hours in one day



New spellings will be given out today, have a look on the spelling star and have a practise, they will be tested next week.
