Wednesday 3rd June 2020


You might like to start your day with the Joe Wicks workout on You Tube.

If you prefer, you could try something more relaxing. You could join in with a Cosmic Kids yoga session or get ready for the day with these movement songs:



Wake Up! Shake up! Get ready for a brand new day...

Get that sunshine in your pocket and that good soul in your feet as you dance, dance, dance along with the Trolls...


Today, you are going to watch a video where Samuel Pepys answers some questions.

Listen to it carefully because you are going to write a short information booklet about him afterwards.



Using your notes from yesterday and by recalling the facts you have just heard, you need to think of information to write in a booklet form. You could just fold a piece of paper to do this and use a ruler to draw some lines to write on -  and maybe draw boxes to draw some pictures  with captions.

Or you could use the leaflet template below.  You will need to fold it in half and design your own front cover for the booklet.


Challenge: Can you think of questions to use as your headings and answer them to give the information underneath?

There are some questions on the sheets below, to give you some ideas.


An Interview with Samuel Pepys

Select one of these if you would like to print a writing frame for your information booklet.

Here is an example of an information page about Pepys but there are some mistakes in it! Can you spot them and put them right?


Continue to learn your spellings, ready for your quiz on Friday.

Your spellings this week focus on adding the suffix -y

spot - spotty

fun - funny

run - runny        

mud - muddy

sun - sunny

dad - daddy

We can add a -y to many root words.

For some words we double the final consonant before adding -y.

This is when there is a short vowel and a single consonant at the end of a word.




Today we are going to focus on ‘igh’.


Here is a phonics game to play.

Focus on the igh sound.


Below there are also a selection of sheets that focus on the reading or writing of the focus sound. Select one that you feel is appropriate for your child.

The challenge sheet is the one that involves different ways to represent the 'igh' sound.  


This week we will be revising the letter formation of the ‘zig zag’ letters: v w x z

If your child is starting these letters in the correct position (the top of the letter) then they can begin to start working on the pre-cursive letter formation and start their letters on the line.

In this power point you can select the letter you would like to learn, watch how to form it and then have a go in your handwriting books.

Today have a go at some short words with these letters: v w x z   - vet   wet   zoo  box  fox



Please try to read for at least 10 minutes at some point today.



Today in maths you will thinking about sorting 2D shapes. Here is the video:
