How to write the letter 'q' | Improve Your Handwriting. This video demonstrates how to form the letter 'q' using precursive letter formation.

9:30 - 10:20 Phonics

Today we will be exploring the ‘ed’ and ‘ing’ suffix.


A suffix is a group of letters that joins to the end of a word (root word) to change its meaning.

ed’ can be joined to ‘talk’ to make ‘talked’. Now the word is a past tense word – it happened in the past. e.g. I talkedto you yesterday.

ing’ can be joined to ‘walk’ to make ‘walking’. Now the word is a present tense word – it is happening now. e.g. I am walking to school.


I would like the children to practise their blending skills by reading the flashcards (see below).

Discuss how the meanings of the words change.


Then, I would like the children to practise their segmenting skills by spelling words which their parent/carer reads out loud from the flashcards (see below). 


Extra Challenge:

Write sentences including at least one of the ‘ed’ and ‘ing’ words. 

Remember to use a capital letter at the beginning and a full stop at the end. 

Also, remember to write on the line and use lead-ins/lead-outs

Draw and label a design of s story book themed face mask.

You can complete the template below instead.

Think about these questions when you label your desing:

13:15 - 13:45 Reading

LO: To be able to infer how characters from the text are feeling.


Today, the Infer Viper will be helping us to think about how the characters in the story are felling and to be able to explain why we think this. 

Please read the fourth part of ‘Oh, the Thinks You Can Think’ by Dr Seuss (see link below). 


Main Activity:

Write clear and well explained full answers to these questions:


  1. How does the boy feel on the first page?
  2. How do the walruses feel on the second page?
  3. How do the horses feel on the third page?
  4. How does the boy feel on the last page?


Look at the illustrations and read the text to help you decide on what emotions the characters are feeling. 

Remember to use the illustrations and words from the text to help you explain why you think this. 

You answers should include the word ‘because’ in order to explain why you have made your inferences.


Example Answers:

  1. The boy feels surprised because he just saw a Jibboo?
  2. The walruses feel angry because the postman is annoying them.
  3. The horses feel worried because they are trying to balance on balls.
  4. The boy feels relieved because he has found light.


Extra Support Activity: 

Draw pictures to visually represent your answers to the above questions. Verbally explain your pictures to your parent. 


Extra Challenge Activity:

Add extra detail your answers by using joining words, adjectives and adverbs,

e.g. The walruses are very angry because the postman is annoying them and they have frowns on their faces.

The horses feel worried because they are trying to balance on slippery balls and they have wide eyes.
