- People who follow the faith of Judaism have been celebrating Passover this week. But what is Passover? Click on this link to learn all about the story of Passover:
Once you are familiar with the story - create a story map to re-tell the story. i.e
Box 1: Moses lived in England
Box 2: Moses asked the Pharaoh to set the Jewish people free
Box 3: The Pharaoh said no, and God was not happy
Box 4: So God sent...

- Can you write a story in this style but ... with a twist! HOW TO FIND UNDERWATER, HIDDEN PIRATE TREASURE. Imagine a pirate dropped his treasure and it sunk all the way down to the bottom of the sea. How would Albie get to it? Would he dive? Use a submarine? Travel on the back of a fish?
You could plan your story using a story board with pictures!
You could present your story as a book by folding pieces of A4 paper in half and stapling them together.
This is a big task and you may want to do two pages a day.
Once you have finished writing and illustrating your stories you could post them to school, for the children who are still at school to read.
- Play PLANETARY PLURALS on Phonics Play:
In Oak Class this week we would be exploring the rules which we follow when writing plurals (more than one of a 'thing'). When do we add s? When do we add es? Sometimes the whole word changes! See if you can spot any patterns while playing PLANETARY PLURALS
If you would like to try any of the other games you can use this log in and password:
-Add some more 'High Five' hands to your tricky word wall. Have you got these Tricky Words: oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked, could?
- Sound Hide and Seek
Find some sticky notes (or paper with bluetack)
On the sticky notes carefully write these sounds: ai, ee, igh, oa, oo, ar, or, ur, ow, oi, ear, air, ure, er or these Tricky Words: oh, their, people, Mr, Mrs, looked, called, asked, could
Ask someone in your family to hide the post-it notes all over the house (especially on things you'll need during the day i.e. toothbrush, toilet roll, milk)
Every time you find a sticky note throughout the day say the sound or the word. If you get it right, you can keep it and get a point. If you get it wrong the person who hid it gets a point and can re-hide the note.
WHO WILL WIN??
PLEASE checkout the other writing ideas and activities at the bottom of this blog page.
-"Tiddler the Story Telling fish needs to get to school at 9 O'clock. Before he goes to school he has some jobs to do. He needs to get dressed, which takes 10 minutes. He needs to eat breakfast which takes 15 minutes. He needs to brush his teeth, which takes 5 minutes. He needs to walk to school, which takes 15 minutes. What time would he need to get up, in order to complete all these tasks?"
How many minutes in an hour? How many minutes in a quarter of an hour? Do you need to add or take away the total minutes from 9 O'clock? Can you write 9 O'clock on a digital and analogue clock? What would Half Past 3 in the afternoon look like on a digital and analogue clock?
Tiddler stops to talk to a mermaid for 5 minutes. What time would he get to school now?
