What is the plan today?

Firstly, I would like you to think about how you feel today.

These are strange times and if you’re anything like me, then you’ll be missing lots of the people you care about. My little girl woke up yesterday and all she talked about was seeing her grans and papas. She doesn’t understand that the man and lady on the TV won’t let her go out and do all her normal things. It made me feel really sad watching her feel so blue. It’ll be ok, and it won’t be like this forever but it made me think of a story that I’d like you to watch today.

-Watch this video.



Let’s start with something fun! I used to make these when I was a girl and we called them fortune tellers. I thought we could use it to help make some funny stories.

– Watch this video.

Here is the list of ideas for:
– What happens
– Setting
– Characters

-Use your chatterbox to help you to decide on story writing ideas. This is definitely a challenging job today but let’s give it a go and do what you can.

-Try to draw a detailed picture with the mystery ideas, talk through your ideas and if you can, write about them or make an audio clip.

Here are my mystery ideas and the story I made.

– Watch this video.

Want a Challenge?

– Try it again to see if you get different story ideas. If you had better ideas to write about, you could make another chatterbox to help you talk, draw or write about a story. Have fun being creative!



Estimate means have a good guess without counting.
– Look at this picture but don’t count yet, it’s a wee bit trickier today!

Estimate how many daisies you think you see.

Yesterday we used what we knew about counting in 10s to help us make bigger numbers. Let’s see that we know what the digits really mean.

– Watch this video

– Write out the answers like you saw in the video for these numbers.


48               82               83               64

28               55               30               96


Want a Challenge?

– Can you make the numbers using this information:

2tens 6ones          6tens 1one          7tens 3ones          9tens 9ones

40 + 3          20 + 4          90 + 0          50 + 8



We read the Wide Mouthed Frog by Keith Faulkner yesterday. The frog met lots of animals and they told you what they liked to eat. In nature, all living things have a purpose. We have producers and consumers. This is called a FOOD CHAIN.

– Look at this PowerPoint. There are questions to answer on some of the pages so click the boxes you think are correct as you work through this activity.



– Why not draw a picture of each member of your family and think about the foods they like to eat. What is your family food chain?

Am I done for today then?

Looking at the Blogs, it looks like you’ve done a wonderful job this week! So yes, you are done!

Hopefully you’ve managed a wee look at your mymaths, Bug Club or Teach Your Monster to Read websites if you were needing extra jobs to do but I’m thinking:-

did you plan in playing time today?

If not, go get on the case now!

Tomorrow I have a wee surprise video but it is catch up day if you need more time, or just go and play and be creative.
