Any you are not confident with today, keep repeating them all week for 5 minutes until you are confident.
Happy handwriting! :)

Well done for your fantastic WANTED posters! They were so brilliant that the Big Bad Wolf has been caught!! Now we need to find out more information from him... So today we are going to write some questions. Please see the video and resources below. Your task today is to write questions to ask the wolf - Can you write one for all 6 question words? The Question Hand and Word Mat below can help with your spelling.


If you would like an extra activity, you could do some acting. Pretend to be the Big Bad Wolf and answer your questions. What might the wolf say? Do you think it was an accident or on purpose? Is he really bad? What might the wolf's voice sound like?

Today we are looking at comparing numbers.

Watch the video and complete the White Rose (WR) worksheet if you enjoy this way of learning.


Otherwise, you can follow Miss James' practical lesson by watching her video.

To work practically today you will need some number cards or just a piece of paper and pencil.

I have added some more challenging activities to the list as well this week. Use the adult guidance to help guide the activities if you require more challenge.

Have a go at the reading activities below. They include a short text to read and some comprehension questions, to ensure children are developing a good understanding of what they have read. You can choose the level of text you feel your child would be most comfortable with.




For today's geography lesson, we are going to be learning more about the area where we live and go to school. I would like you to watch the video and see if you can recognise any of the buildings on the photographs. We will also look at a map of the local area, taken from above. Perhaps you might spot your own house! Finally, there is a worksheet for you to complete. Have fun roving geographers!
