Wednesday 22nd April

Monty is enjoying his daily exercise and yesterday he had fun playing on the slide. What are you going to do today to get some exercise? If you need some inspiration click on this word 'Sport' and it will take you to our sports page with lots of different ideas to get active.  

Phonics: Challenge - How many different spellings of the homophone 'there' can you write in one sentence? I managed to write all three, can you? 

English: Let's be creative. Yesterday you created a new land from the story 'The Magic Faraway Tree' and wrote a diary extract to explain your adventure. Today I want you to be creative and think how would you travel to the new land you've created? Will you fly? climb? or maybe there will be multiple ways to travel there.

Either write down how you would travel there (remembering to include adjectives) or draw what the journey would look like (including notes next to your drawings to describe things).

Once you've done this, think about who you would invite to join you in your new land. Write an invitation to invite one of your friends or family members to come and explore the land. Remember to include:

  • the name of the person you're inviting
  • directions on how to get there
  • what time they will need to get there for
  • a bit of detail about the land, but not too much! You want them to see it for themselves.

Here is the clip from yesterday if you want to watch it again to remind you of the magic faraway tree. 



Maths: Yesterday you learnt how to measure using a ruler and measure in cm. Today, go on a hunt around your house to find different items to measure. Draw a table, like mine, and choose your level of challenge.

item estimate measurement 
scissors 7 cm 8 cm

Bronze - Use cm and whole numbers (like my example)

Silver - measure using cm and mm

Remember we have learnt about the small lines in-between and these are called millimetres (mm). How many mm in 1 cm?


10 mm. Count the small lines if you did not say 10. So how many mm in 1/2 a cm? 

When measuring using mm you need to look at the whole cm and then carefully count the smaller mm lines. In my example you can see 5cm and then the line ends on the 4th smaller (mm). We write this 5cm 4mm.

Gold challenge: Can you work out the width of the river?
