L.O: To read a selection of riddles.

Our focus in English this week is riddles. A riddle is a type of poem that works like a puzzle. Today I want you to read a selection of riddles to get a feel for them and see how they work. Click on the website below and read some of the riddles. What do you notice about the features of a riddle? (What do they all have that is the same?) Talk to your grown up. Which words are at the start of each line? What do you notice about the clues? ( They gradually get......?) What does the last line of each riddle say?

After you have read some riddles and talked to your grown up, copy out one of the riddles in your best handwriting. Then use colour pencils to underline the main features of riddles, e.g I have..., What am I, question mark etc.







Mental Maths Starter:

L.O: To estimate and measure curved and straight lines.

Work through the Oak Academy on measuring lines. Remember to make sure you start at 0cm and NOT at the start of your ruler. Your task is draw 2D shapes in your workbook and measure the longest sides. See if you can estimate the length in your head before you start.


Draw some curved lines then use some string/wool/ribbon to measure the lengths accurately.

L.O: To record what I know and what I want to find out.

Our new science is called'Growth and Green Fingers' and is all about plants.

Talk to your grown up about what you already know about plants- different types of plants, where they grow, what they need. Think too about what you want to find out. In your workbooks, put the heading 'What I already know'

Write about all the things you know about plants. What they look like, how plants can be different from each other, where they grow etc. Then put the heading

'What I want to find out'

Write at least 4 things you want to find out. For example, what is the fastest growing plant? Do all plants need soil? (Don't forget your question marks.

Next watch the powerpoint on different types of trees, including deciduous and evergreen trees . Talk to your grown up as you are watching. Then, weather permitting, go on a 'tree/leaf hunt' and see how many different types of trees you can spot. Take a bag or plastic wallet with you and see if you can collect different types of leaves. (Don't pull them off the trees, they are a living thing-collect them from the ground.) Use the leaf identification sheets to help you work out the types of trees. You can tick off the ones you see. Talk to your grown up about whether the trees are deciduous or evergreen. Once you get home/back to the classroom, divide your page in half and put the headings 'deciduous' and 'evergreen'. Draw and label the trees you saw in the correct half. Write 2 or 3 sentences to describe the size and shape of the leaves you saw/collected.
