Good Morning


I hope you are all feeling ok today. We were all a bit tired yesterday. With that in mind, I'm going to make today a bit easier on us all and give us a bit more free time to make sure our minds and bodies are both kept healthy.


Have a lovely day.

Mrs Bennett

9:00 - 9:30 - Phonics - adding a suffix to a word ending in y


Look through the PowerPoint. When words end in y, we change the y to an i before adding the suffix. We do not need to do this when adding ing.

Look at the More than One Machine for plurals and the Third Person Machine, the Time Machine and the  +er +est Machine.


Watch ‘The Suffix Song’ video. Can you remember the rules for adding suffixes at the end of the song? What is the rule for adding ing, ed, er, est and y to words ending in y?


Have a go at the activity. Yellow I wrote a diary but he didn’t know that it should be written in the past tense. Write the diary in the past tense. Complete the boxes for +es +er +est.

Adding a suffix to words that end in y

The Suffix Song

This is "The Suffix Song" by MonsterPhonics on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.

10:00 - 10:30 - Well Being/Science


Go for a walk or explore your garden. Go on a minibeast hunt. Can you find a microhabitat? Collect leaves and twigs ready for your Science lesson (remember to only pick them if they have fallen off onto the ground and not if they are still on the trees or bushes). 


Enjoy the fresh air. Listen out for the birds singing. Is there wind? Can you hear it rustling in the leaves? 


Take a picture of you on your walk/in your garden collecting your leaves and twigs and send it to me. 

10:45 - 11:00 - Quiet Reading


Send me a video of you reading a book. Tell me about the book you have chosen to read.

Science Lesson 5 (word document below)


Today we will be joining a teacher called Miss Simkin and learning about microhabitats.


What is a microhabitat? (




Can you remember what a habitat is?



A habitat is the natural home of an organism.



Watch a video about a Rockpool

1. Ask a parent or carer to cut off the top and bottom off your plastic bottle.

2. Collect sticks, leaves and bark.

3. Fill the plastic tube with your materials.

4. Choose a good spot for your microhabitat.


Take a photo of your bug hotel and email it to Mrs Bennett who will forward it to me. It’s important I keep a record of all your hard work as it helps me to know how you are getting on.


Extra Activity

Explore microhabitats in your garden or when out on a walk with you parent or carer.

Take photos or draw pictures of living organisms you discover. 

1:20 - 2:15 - English


To explore how people's feelings get hurt. 


Look at the picture of the crow. He feels like his friends will no longer like him. They loved his bright colours and beautiful voice but now he is black and can only croak. He feels less beautiful and fears he has no friends.


Re-enact, through drama, conversations the other animals might be having about him. You can write this down but you could also record yourself talking and send that to me. 


Watch the video I found of someone doing an experiment with two apples. The apples look fine on the outside but one has been treated badly and had mean words said to it. Look at it when it is cut open. What has happened to it?


This is the effect nasty words can have on people. There are no outward wounds but there are certainly internal ones.



Apple experiment

Think about how our words can make people feel.

Draw a poster to show how we should talk to people to show kindness.
