GPS Starter:

Watch powerpoint on compound words.

See if you can write some compound words, e.g lady + bird = ladybird. Put them into sentences.


Main Activity

Today we will be writing the next paragraph (box 3) of our own version of Little Red Riding Hood. This is our problem part. Think about what was on your story plan from Friday. Start a new paragraph under yesterday's work  (put the short date in the margin) Explain your character arrives at their destination and that the baddie is already there. What happens next? Use lots of adjectives to describe the baddie and how the main character was feeling.  Then stop there for today.  ‘Think, say, write, check’ each sentence and check your punctuation. Extend your sentences with ‘because' or 'so' if you can. See if you can use a different sentence starter- use 'when' or 'after a while'


Mental Maths Starter:

Practise counting forwards and backwards in 10 from different starting points, e.g start at 17 and go forwards. Start at 92 and count backwards etc.

L.O: To understand the effect of wind on objects.

This week, we are going to be looking at wind and how it affects objects. Watch the very short video


In class we are going to be making kites- talk to your grown up about what a kite needs to do to be successful. If you have a hairdryer and a piece of thin cloth, blow the hairdryer at the cloth - how is it staying in the air? Explain that it will need wind etc. 

Watch the video on how to make a simple kite. If you have the materials, you can have a go at home!

 Take your kite into the garden/yard and test whether it works. Take a photo if you want and send in via the office.

*While you are outside, look at how fast the clouds are moving in the sky. Talk to your grown up about why they are moving fast/slow.
