Good morning Oak Class! I hope you’re all ok and had a lovely day yesterday. I just want to say well done again to you all for engaging with the online learning. You’re doing brilliantly! Remember to send us your work and let us know how you’re getting on. Now for today’s work…


BBC online learning group:

Go to BBC website

Find the English lesson for today – 30 April: English

Record the LI below in your Home Learning book and record any notes, etc in your book.

LI – to use hyphens and dashes.

Extension English task group:

Poetry – Beautifully different, wonderfully the same!

LI – to write poetry using a given format.

Task 1. Watch the following lyric video – read the lyrics as a poem: babes-ugly-lyrics

Look up the word ‘ugly’ in a dictionary/Word Hippo (online dictionary) Now watch this lyric video – read the lyrics as a poem: a-settle-this-is-me-lyrics

(I bet you can’t watch it without actually singing along!) What does ‘unique’ mean? Look it up in a dictionary and write down the definition. Can you find some synonyms for the word unique? Note them down. We are all unique! What makes you unique? Write down a list of things that make you unique. It could be something unique about your appearance, about your family, about your hobbies/interests etc.

Task 2. Write your ‘Unique’ poem all about you. Follow this format:

Unique feature
This is me
Synonym for unique
Unique feature
This is me
Synonym for unique

Here is an example to look at:

My hair is mousey brown and won’t stay straight
But this is me
I am unique
I have seventeen freckles on my nose
But this is me
I am exceptional
But this is me

You can have as many lines as you want in your poem. Share your finished poem with someone that you live with.

Stilling Time

As you know, from this week, Mrs O’Donnel is going to publish a KS1 and KS2 Stilling Time activity every Tuesday and Thursday. Today I’d like you to access this! Enjoy your time with Mrs O’Donnell!

CPSHE – all about me on Purple Mash

Following on from this morning’s Extension English lesson (don’t worry those of you who chose to do the BBC lesson – you can still do this activity) I’d like you to access the 2Do I’ve set you on Purple Mash. The task is to make a poster using pictures and writing to tell people all about you. For those of you who wrote the poem this morning, you can use lots of your ideas for what makes you unique and special. I want the poster to be a celebration of you because you are all so wonderful! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Geography – LI – to learn about the seven continents and five oceans of the world and how to map them using a globe and an atlas.

Use the 28 April:  Geography lesson on the BBC website:

One of the activities requires you to print a work sheet so if you can do this, great. If not, don’t worry, just do the other activities and have a look at that one on the screen and just think about it.
