Good morning Willow Class. I hope you’re all ok and enjoyed yesterday’s learning!

From this week, we are asking you to send at least one piece of English and Maths work a week to your teacher so we can see how you are getting on. You can email any pictures of work. Feel free to send more if you are doing so already or wish to. These will then be put on our Friday Learning Review which looks at all the amazing work you have done in the week.

We have also enabled an upload feature to our blog posts, so you can upload images there that we can then approve as staff. As we don’t want to overload the website, storage space is limited, any attachments are restricted to 1mgb. I know you are all very busy and juggling lots of different things but it would be great to see a piece of work from you. If you are having any issues or difficulties with this please email for help.


LI – to explore character.

Task 1. Read Chapter 1 of the extract; you may wish to print it out if you can. https://www.lovereadin Karen-Inglis.html

Spot the vocabulary that you explored yesterday. If you have printed the extract out, then you can highlight the words when you spot them. Think about, or if possible talk with someone at home about their meaning in the sentences in which they appear. Think about the characters of Tom and Stella. What are your first impressions of them? How are they similar to each other? How are they different?

Task 2. Compare the characters by copying a Venn diagram like the one in the link below into your Home Learning Book and then filling it in:

Venn Diagram

Explain your Venn diagram to someone in your household. Try to support points you have made with evidence from the text. E.g. I can say that Tom is …. because the text says ….

Stilling Time

Please access Mrs O’Donnell’s Stilling Time activity for today and enjoy your time with her.



LI – to use and understand French greetings.

This afternoon, we are going to practise our French greetings using a fun meet and greet song. I wanted you to login to Twinkl to listen to the song but apparently the free login has gone!! So… I’ve made a home-made video – I hope the quality is ok! I suggest turning your volume up as high as it will go or even using headphones – this might make it easier to hear.


Once you have listened and joined in a couple of times (you could look at Page 3 of the link below to see the lyrics) , challenge yourself to see if you know what each of the lines of the songs mean in English. In your Home Learning Book (underneath the LI), write down each French lyric and then what you think the English translation is next to it or underneath it. Once you have completed the task, check if you were correct using Page 4 of the link below which is the English translation. Now just enjoy performing the song for someone at home. Good luck!

See you all tomorrow!
