Good Morning


I hope everyone is feeling great this morning. You are all doing amazing. Keep it up.

Let me know if you  need anything.

9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - al


Look at the PPT and then how to add suffixes to al words. Focus on the al picture and sentence for the most common al words. This is a rare grapheme.

Watch the flashcards video and the ‘Pedal Forwards in Time’ video. Make the Tricky Witch (wave a pretend wand) action every time you hear an 'al' word. 

Activity: Colour and label the picture with colour-coded writing or draw your own pictures.

10:00 - 10:30 - English Writing


Learning Objective: To be able to use adjectives and verbs. 


Today we are writing about the crow meeting the sun. 


Sentence 1 - Here we are going to use a time adverbial to describe how long it has taken the crow to reach his destination. 


Gather some adverbial phrases to describe the passing of time - many months later, after almost a year, several seasons later, after travelling for weeks and weeks...


Here is my sentence: Many months later, the crow finally reached his destination.


Sentence 2 - The crow has reached the sun so here we are going to gather some words to describe how daunted the crow is by the mighty sun - small, powerless, helpless, vulnerable, insignificant, overwhelmed, weak, unimportant... Now we are going to gather adjectives to describe the sun - bright, brilliant, dazzling, fiery, intense, flaming, golden, shimmering, splendid....

Here is my sentence: He felt very small next to the mighty sun. It was golden, magnificent and splendid. 


Sentence 3 - Look at the crow. 

What questions could he ask the sun? - will, what, can, how...


Now gather some adverbs to describe how the crow speaks: graciously, timidly, politely, falteringly, hesitantly, gingerly, nervously, anxiously, shakily...


Finally, gather some bossy (imperative) verbs for the sun to reply: grab, grasp, take, use, carry...


Here is my dialogue between the crow and the sun:

"Will you help us melt the snow?" asked the crow timidly.

"Take this stick of fire," said the sun angrily.

1:20 - 3:15 - RE - Thankful Thursday


I thought that for RE today we would have a relaxing afternoon. I have put a short PPT for you to look at and then you can choose an activity to do to show how you are thankful - drawing a picture of you looking thankful, drawing a thankful tree or writing a list of things you are thankful for. 


Once you have done this you can do something fun with whoever you are at home with. You could play some games, go for a walk, do some arts and crafts, watch a film etc...


With this in mind, you don't have to come back for an afternoon zoom session. You can enjoy your afternoon without having to stop. 


Enjoy your afternoon and I can't wait to see your work from the morning and find out what you get up to this afternoon.
