Good morning Beech Class. I hope you are all OK and are ready for today’s learning.
Thank you to everyone that voted for next week’s story. Here are the results of the vote …
Can you see which one won?
It was the Rainbow Fish, so our learning in English will be all about that.
Commotion in the Ocean was the next highest vote so we could always do that story the week after? Parents let me know in your emails if the children would like to do that. I am really keen for them to lead the learning as much as they can to keep them engaged and motivated.
Imagine you are a pirate on an adventure to find some treasure just like the pirates from the story. Can you write a message in a bottle to describe your journey to the treasure?
Use this PowerPoint to start.
Can you use time connectives to sequence your writing?
Can you add describing words?
Use this template if you like or just write your message in your book.
There are 2 sheets. Sheet 1 has a sentence starter to help provide more structure.
To simplify the task for your child just ask them to write 1 sentence and give them the sentence starter I saw.
Sheet 2 is more open ended.
Select the best sheet for your child.
and use your phonics
Today we are continuing with capacity. Recap from yesterday – what does capacity mean?
Look at this from White Rose.
Week 1 Lesson 5 – Measure capacity
But we are going to have a go at measuring capacity ourselves today so complete this:
Maths problem of the day
Have a go at this extra problem if you would like. Ask the children how do you know that? How did you work out that answer?
Or have a go at this:
Select capacity then up to 100ml. You can select lower if that is more suitable for your child.
Please look at this for today’s phonics revision on ou.

BBC Home learning
Don’t forget to try the BBC home learning as an alternative to the learning I am setting, if your child is struggling to engage. Please do not over face your child and complete it as well as this.
