This week is Children’s Mental Health week and today we would like to children to express themselves through the clothing that they wear. We can’t wait to see what you choose to wear today and remember expressing yourself is all about doing things that make you feel good.


We also like to tell you about a virtual zoo day which is being hosted by Chester Zoo. From 10am they will be hosting live videos giving us the zoo experience from the comfort of our own homes. It sounds like it is going to be so much fun so please make time to check it out. The link is below:

Today we thought we would try something a little bit different in PE and we are going to be following an online lesson from Oak Academy which is all about exploring travelling movements. In this lesson, we will learn how to link the basic balances with travelling movements. We will also learn how to perform a safe warm - up and cool - down. If this is something you would like to join in with then please click on the link below:


As always you can join in with one of Joe Wicks' online PE lessons which are always great fun, you can find the link below:

9:55 -10:55



In our online Maths lesson today we will be leaning about equivalent fractions, these are fractions that are the same. We will be learning about the equivalence between ½ and 2/4 in detail during the lesson. The fraction wall below shows that ½ and 2/4 are equivalent because they look exactly the same. 




The pictures below show fractions of shapes that have been coloured in. In the images ½ of the first shape has been coloured and 2/4 of the second shape has been coloured.






The same amount of each circle has been coloured and the same amount of each square has been so we know that they are equivalent.


Another way to work out equivalent fractions is to multiply or divide the numerator and the denominator by the same amount. For example:


1  x   2  =  2

2  x   2  =  4


We will look at further examples of equivalent fractions during the lesson and then we would like you to complete the first activity about finding fractions that are the same as ½ and then another activity which is about recognising the equivalence between ½ and 2/4.

Times Tables


You are doing so well with your times tables and we want you to keep up the fantastic effort so please take this time to practise your 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables. When you are practising your times tables please make sure that you are not doing them all in order as this will be too easy and you will remember the pattern, you need to know them in any random order such as

3 x 3 = 9

3 x 7 = 21

3 x 2 = 6


If you would really like to challenge yourself start learning the division facts for each time table, for example:


9 divide by 3 = 3

21 divide by 3 = 7

6 divide by 3 = 2


11:35 – 12:25



Today in English we will be leaning all about homophones and how to identify them. Talk to the adult in the room and tell them what you think a homophone is? A homophone is a word that sounds the same as another word but has a different spelling and a different meaning.




The example above shows 2 words that sound exactly the same when we say them but are spelt differently and their meaning is different. Which is the correct see, sea for the sentences below?


The ___ looked rough and wild so I decided not to go for a swim.


I looked out the window and could ___ the sun shining brightly.


After the online lesson we would like you to complete the homophone activity that can be found in the resources section of the class webpage. We would like you to complete the activity on page 1 which is all about matching the picture to the correct word and also page 2 which asks you to complete the sentence by crossing out the incorrect homophone. There are 5 pages of homophone activities please do not complete all of them just pages 1 and 2.


Once you have completed the task feel free to watch this great video all about homophones.

Today you can choose which book you would like to read. You may want to read an RWI book that you have or maybe you’re going to spend some time reading your favourite bedtime story.


Today is free reader day so you can choose whichever book you would like to read. If you have an old RWI book at home that you love then you can read that or you could log onto Bug Club and read a book online.


Today you can choose a book that you would like to read. If you are really enjoying the books on Bug Club then you may want to spend this time logging on and reading a book online or you can find an old black and white RWI book and read that instead. 


Today you can decide which book you would like to read as its free reader day. If you would like to read a book on Bug Club then you can or if you would rather spend some time reading one of your favourites from your book collection that you can do that, it’s your choice! 


When you have finished this task you can spend the rest of the time reading a book on Bug Club, the link and login details are below:

There will be no online story time at 2:05 so please choose your favourite book and spend some time reading it with someone at home :-)



We will spend some time sharing a story together and maybe you could tell me about your favourite story and why you like it so much.
