Here is a song you might like to listen to and maybe sing and dance along to, we discussed it during our anti-bullying week and have used it as tidy up music on many occasions. Maybe you could tidy up to it today!

Over the past two weeks, you have been finding out about the fire service we know now. Today you are going to find out about how fires were tackled in the past. In 1666 there was a huge fire, known as ‘The Great Fire of London’ and it caused a huge amount of damage as the fire spread quickly from house to house. We will find out some of the reasons why this happened over the next couple of weeks.

Today you are going to look at some pictures of how people during the great fire tackled the blaze and compare what they used to the equipment we have today.


First look at the pictures at the top of the sheet below to see if you can spot what they are using.

Then read the information on the power point below to find out more.

A few key points are given on the information sheet below to help you too.


Your task is to write sentences about the differences between firefighting in the past to firefighting today.  There are some pictures at the bottom of the first sheet to use as prompts for your sentences, if you would like to.

For example:

In the past they used leather buckets to put out fire but they did not hold much water.

 Today we use hoses which squirt out lots of water!



This week we are going to learn words with the sound ure- sure it's pure:

cure, pure, manure, secure

We are also going to spell some words that end in 'x' so when they become plural you add 'es' not just 's':

foxes, mixes, boxes, taxes

Below are the usual sheets with the spellings on them for you to use if you would like to.


The phonic focus this week is also: ure- sure it's pure?

We will continue to revise: ire- Fire, fire! and ear – Hear with your ear.


Please complete the phonics sheet attached below- focus on a different section each day this week and play the alien game at the end of the week.

You can read the words on screen if you prefer not to print them off.

If you haven't yet looked at the Ruth Miskin phonics video for the day, you might like to click the link below to find out which sound is being revised today.



In handwriting today we are going to recap on the letter formation of  c, a, d.

If your child is confidently starting these letters in the correct point- at the top of the letter, then they are ready to have a go at lead-ins (pre-cursive writing) but if they are starting these letters at the bottom or not starting the d at the same place as c and a, then then should continue to work on this before starting the lead-ins modelled below.

Only start lead-ins when your child is forming these letters accurately at the specified starting point.

Select the required letter and watch how to form it in the pre-cursive style- in this power point.

Please continue to read for at least 10 minutes today.

We have been really pleased to hear that lots of you are finding the online resources below useful, so if you haven't yet given them a try, maybe you could have a look this week.

Story Time


Here is a story you might like to listen to:

Little Red Hen | Oxford Owl

Listen to this story to find out a bit more about the ingredients needed to make bread in this traditional tale.
What message do you think the story gives you about being a good friend?


Today we will be learning about part whole relationships- number bonds.

Click below on the link to the White Rose Maths website and locate the week 3 set of lessons and watch the video for lesson 1.


The video will explain the learning for today and then you can print the linked worksheets, if you would like to. There are answers available, if you would like to refer to them. There are also materials on the BBC bitesize website that consolidate learning on number bonds that you might like to look at.


If you prefer not to print the work sheet then you could copy the following into your home school learning workbook:


*Draw a tens frame with ten spaces and ten counters- one in each square (as shown in the video and on the worksheet)

Colour some of the counters in one colour and the rest in another colour.

Then write an addition calculation to match the tens frame.

For example 8 +2 = 10


Then draw 2 tens frames – to show a number bond for 20.

For example draw 18 + 2 = 20


*Repeat for other bonds for 10/20.

Discuss what you notice.


*Copy and complete these number bonds:

4 + 6 = …..

4 + 16 =……


5 + 5 = …..

5 + 15 = …..


10 = ….. + 1

20 = …….. + 1


10 = 3 + …..

20 = … + 13


*Draw bar models as shown on the video and in the worksheets to complete.

For example:

Draw the top bar with 20 written in it.

The bar underneath has 8 in one section and the second larger section is blank to write the missing number in.

Repeat for other examples of bar models for 20.
