This morning we will be starting our day with a comprehension, please remember to read the text twice, look back at the text when answering the questions as it will help you to find the answers and ensure that you read everything on the page, this includes titles and subheadings. We would like to you read ‘Amazing Antarctica’ which is a fact file all about animals that live in Antarctica. The comprehension can be found in the resources section of the class webpage, you do not have to print it out you can read the text on your laptop and then answer the questions in your blue book. We will be giving extra dojo points to those children who answer the questions in full sentences, for example:



How many days are there in a week?


There are seven days in a week.


9:30 – 9:55

9:55 – 10:55



Today in Maths we will be moving on from telling the time in 5 minute intervals as you have done so well with that, adults please keep asking the children to tell you to time as this will help to reinforce their time knowledge. For today’s lesson we will be comparing and sequencing intervals of time, this means we will be looking at different events and working out how long they take to do and comparing which is longer or shorter.


For example if we compare writing a story and saying hello, which would take longer? We know that writing a story would take longer.

The picture below shows 2 different activities, which do you think will take longer? How long will each of them take?



Which of these activates below takes 6 hours a day?




During the online lesson we will be discussing and sequencing different events as well as playing some games to give children an understanding of how long 10 seconds is and how long 10 minutes is. Once we have completed our online lesson we would like children to download the time sequinning activity in the resources section and work their way through the task which involves ordering events which take the shortest to longest as well as using < > to compare activities.

In English today we will be looking at features of a diary entry as we will beginning to write our very own diary. Some of you may already keep a diary which is great, if you don’t that is fine as you will soon know all about the features and what to include in them. The checklist below gives you an idea of the features to include.




During our online lesson we are going to look at an example of a diary by Little RED Riding Hood and spot the features together. We would then like you to begin writing a diary entry for Wednesday 27th January. You will need to include information about:


The activities that you did

What you ate during the day (not all of the meals just some information)

How you felt

We can’t wait to see some of your wonderful writing and please remember to write in chronological order (the order that the events happened).

In RE today we will be learning about the 10 commandments, we know from our RE lesson last week that when Moses climbed to the top of Mount Sinai God gave him 10 laws that would tell people how to live. In the resources section of the class webpage there is PowerPoint all about the 10 commandments which we would like you to read. The link below also provides information about the 10 commandments


10 Commandments


Once you have read all about the 10 commandments we would like you to write your own 10 commandments.

You might want to think about the following:

• Think about how you should treat others?

• How should you behave towards other people?

• What should you be grateful for in life?

• What should you always try to do every day?

• What rules should people follow so that the world is a better place?


Here is some vocabulary and phrases which might help you:

Grateful, happy, generous, kind, not, jealous, appreciate others, respect, obey rules, listen and understanding.
