LO: To create a character


GPS Starter: 

Add the suffixes 'ing' or 'ed' to these words and explain the meaning to an adult.






Main Task: 

Today we are carrying on with our Oak National Academy lesson. You are going to create your own story. Once you have done this, I would like you to draw a picture of your character. You can use the sheet I have attached as an outline of your character or you can draw your own. Next, write 5 adjectives around your picture to describe what your character is like.


EXT: Can you put your adjectives into sentences using a conjunction?


Go onto phonics play and look at phase 5. Play flashcards speed trial and then you can choose some other games. 


LO: Measure and begin to record lengths and heights.


Mental Maths Starter: 






Do you notice a pattern? What do you notice?


Main Task:

Today we are looking at units of measure. Centimetres and metres.


EXT: If you know that there are 100cm in 1m then have a go at these questions. Think about how many 0's you need to add on or take away. 

400cm= ___m

800cm= ___m

500cm= ___m





LO: To recognise what is needed for plant growth

In Science we are looking at growing cress. We were going to grow some cress in school so if you want to do this at home please send me some pictures! 

Watch the video of the cress time lapse and look at how many hours it takes the cress to grow. 

Think about what we talked about last week in school about what a plant needs to grow and tell an adult how the cress is growing. 

Draw some pictures of the cress at different stages of growth, starting from the seed and ending at the cress. Under your pictures, write down the time of each stage (e.g. how many hours).

EXT: Have you ever seen or eaten cress before? Write some adjectives to describe what cress looks and tastes like. It would be great if you could put your adjectives into a sentence using a conjunction!
