Friday 5th March

Hi Haydock Class,

This is our last day of remote learning and we are all coming back to school on Monday (hooray!)

There is a nice link, which I have attached below, that we have been sent to help you get ready for coming back to school. Watch it together with your grown up and talk about how amazing you have been! smiley


GPS Starter:

Watch the powerpoint game on adding suffixes to words. Match the word families. (They have the same root word, just different suffix endings.) Talk to your grown up about them, especially the ones ending in y.

L.O: To create a persuasive farm leaflet or poster

Today you are going to create your own poster or leaflet to persuade people to visit the farm. Look back at your plan from yesterday and have another look at the examples of farm leaflets. Talk to your grown up about what the poster or leaflet is going to look like. Remember the features of persuasive texts:-

  • repeated words
  • alliteration
  • wow word- amazing, fantastic, breath-taking etc.
  • offers
  • rhetorical questions (questions that don't need a direct answer- such as 'Do you want an amazing experience')
  • colourful and eye-catching fonts / capitalised words
  • humour

You can draw pictures to go with the writing and colour them in. Have fun!



Mental Maths Starter:

Play the daily 10 maths game. Click on addition and also subtraction to practise our work this week. You can choose the level, I suggest most of you will want to pick level one or two. 

Main Activity


L.O: To understand that addition is the inverse of subtraction.

Addition is the inverse (opposite) of subtraction. Watch the powerpoint and talk to your grown up about how addition and subtraction are linked. 

Use your knowledge of inverse to complete the differentiated Cheating Charley and Honest Hamish sheets.


Complete the addition and subtraction number families to help you see the link between addition and subtraction.


Monday 5th March

L.O: To know that each day is an opportunity to make good choices.

We are starting our Lent/giving topic today. In our explore section we are looking at making choices and how each is new day gives us a fresh opportunity to make good choices.

Read the story below and then answer the questions verbally with your grown up.


James and his friends

James was looking forward to Saturday.  His Mum had said he could invite four of his friends around to the flat for the afternoon, and she would take them out for tea.  James was counting the days.  It wasn’t often friends came to his house to play because he lived in a small flat in a high-rise block.  His friends arrived and James showed them his games.  They decided to make a list of which order to play them.  The other children had brought either a game or a toy.  Alice had brought an interactive game but decided she wouldn’t get it out in case the batteries got used up.  It was one of the latest games that was very popular.  The others tried to persuade her, but Alice decided she’d had enough and wanted to go home.

“But Mum’s going to take us out for our tea, and we need you for my game after tea.  Even if you won’t let us play your game, we want you to play ours,” said James.  But Alice went to get her coat, picked up her bag and left.


  • What were the opportunities for good that could have been taken in that situation?
  • What would you have said and done?
  • What do you think about the characters in the story?
  • Why do you think they acted as they did?
  • How do you think they felt?
  • What opportunities do you have to choose well?
  • What helps you choose well?


Next, draw a line part way down your page. Put 2 headings- 'good choices' and 'bad choices' on either side of the line. Think about times you have made good choices, e.g tidying your room, sharing your toys etc and then bullet point your ideas underneath 'good choices'. Then think of some bad choices you have made, e.g being mean to a friend, not listening to mum/dad etc. Bullet point these on the other side. Try to think of at least 5 for each side. You can draw a small picture underneath each side to show a good and bad choice. Talk to your grown up about how, even if you have made bad choices in the past, each day is a fresh start and a chance for you to make good choices.
