Hello everyone.

I hope you had a good day yesterday. I loved the jokes some of you sent in when you emailed your work too, they really made me giggle. 

What is orange and sounds like a parrot?

A carrot.smiley

Why did the chicken cross the playground?

To get to the other slide. smiley


Thanks for all of the great work you sent in again. yes I really enjoy being able to share your work so if you don't mind sharing just let me know when you send it in. 

Slide Show 



Well done with your MyMaths tasks yesterday ,I was very impressed by your scores you clever lot!

Today there will be a time activity for you to do. If you have a look at the lesson on the page it should help you before you try the task.


Reading and spellings. 

I'm sure you know what I'm going to say now don't you? That's right mind-readers,  30 minutes reading and then work on your spellings too, please.




So far this week we have been looking at poems and so today we are going to do.... yep that's right, prepositions (you thought I was going to say poems then didn't you?).

Have a look at the picture below to find out a bit more about prepositions. 




So, a preposition has a very important job, it tells you where, when or what made something happened. 

Have a look at this video to learn a bit more about them.

(Ignore the top part that says repeat the activity, I couldn't chop it off wink).

In this picture we can see that some animals have escaped and invaded the classroom! We could use prepositions to say where they are. 

The dog is on the table, or the cat is under the table. 

We could also use all of our other writing skills to add more interest by adding adjectives and adverbs.  

Under the blue table, the furry,grey cat watched the penguin nervously. 


Below is a picture of a rainforest with some animals.  I would like you to write sentences and use prepostions to describe where the animals are. Bonus points too for using adjectives and adverbs to make it more interesting. 

For example, 

The parrot sat quietly in the tree as the jaguar stalked silently below it. 

As always, if you want to change it a little bit and use your own picture you can, or if you want a change from rainforests and want to find a completely different picture that is ok too. The main aim is to write some sentences with prepositions in. I've put a picture with some in underneath to help you if you need it. 






 This one is a bit harder to read but does have a bigger variety on. 

Learning Project - to be done throughout the week

The project work this week aims to provide opportunities for your child to learn more about the world’s rainforests. Learning may focus on the plants, animals and insects that inhabit the rainforest, food that originates there and weather patterns. It could look at plants and animals that can be found in the garden too. 

 ● Amazing Animals-​ ​Ask your child to think about the following: How many different types of animals live in rainforests? Can they name any? What is their diet like? How do they hunt for their prey or hide from predators? Look at these ​11 amazing rainforest animals​. Encourage your child to choose one of the animals and create a poster all about them. 

 ● Layers of the Rainforest-​ Take a look at ​this​ information with your child, all about the layers of the rainforest.​ ​Ask your child to try creating their own diagram showing the layers of the rainforest and the animals you can find in each layer. Your child could cut and stick pictures, paint or draw!​ ​Can your child categorise the animals? 

 ● Roar!-​ Have a go at ​this​ forest themed GoNoodle! Finished? Ask your child to try making up their own rainforest-themed dance routine to the same song - they could pretend to be a different animal for each dance move! ​Recommendation at least 2 hours of exercise a week.

 ● One Step at a Time- ​Talk to family members about the deforestation of rainforests and think about how we could help by taking small steps at home. This​ article should help get them started! Can your child record their very own advert encouraging people to reduce, reuse, recycle? Encourage them to think about the impact on the environment, animals and their habitats, global warming and the tribes that occupy the rainforests. Alternatively, they could write a jingle about the benefits of recycling and perform this to the family. Share these at ​#TheLearningProjects.

I hope you have a good day, and keep the jokes coming.
