Hello everyone, I hope you are all fit and well. This week I was thinking because the weather is a little cooler perhaps it is a good time to do a Sports Day challenge…one of my favourite books to read about sports day is GRRRRR! By Rob Biddulph.
Grrrrr! By Rib Biddulph
Before you listen to the story look at the front cover. Who is the bear with the Grrrrr! Who is the bear hiding in the tree? Predict what you think might happen in the story.
Fred has all his trophies and is the best at everything but he doesn’t seem to have many friends…how do you think Fred feels? Draw Fred and write some words around him that best describes how he feels?
Now here is Boris the bear and why does he sneak into Fred’s cave? What do you think Boris has up his jumper? Why do you think Boris wants to cheat? Predict what you think might happen at the contest.
It’s the day of the contest poor Fred has no Grrrr – what is he going to do? Think of a plan. How is Fred feeling knowing he might not win the contest – should he give up or go on?
What a wonderful ending having everyone help. Boris was just trying to make friends. Can you write another page of the story about how the animals celebrated the contest and illustrate it?
Sign up this week to the Summer Reading Challenge at https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk if you can’t find the books they will help you source them. Connect with your friends over the summer with a book club. Miss Richardson has organised a group for her friends as we are all missing one another.

Summer Term – Week 6 – (Monday 1st June)
Summer Term – Week 5 – (Monday 18th May)
I hope you are all well and busy making great memories and you all received your postcards. I can’t wait to find out what stories you have been reading and what hobbies you have been learning. I finished reading a story book last week and I have finished knitting another blanket for a friend, finding new ways to keep busy is making my mind full! If anyone is celebrating a birthday this month, once again I wish you ‘Happy Birthday’. Hopefully the sun shine’s bright again this week and we can explore a little further afield.
I have added White Rose but BBC bitesize is out there to use as well as other great websites. Keep up with your number bonds 1 – 20 for example a number bond of 7 is 3 + 4, a number bond of 12 is 6 + 6 and a number bond of 20 is 12 + 8. Are you seeing and naming shapes in your environments? Have you measured out ingredients and followed a recipe? Have you been helping to pair up the odd sock? Who can now tell the time? All this is maths – absorb the learning around as everyday you will be learning something new.
We have done some of this before so should be an easy one…
Challenge yourself on Friday to some our maths challenges to see if you are still getting full marks…
Has anyone learned their 2, 5 and 10’s time table yet? Funky Mummy on ICT games…
It will also help you practise you number bonds.
Sorry for no pictures the other week they must not have uploaded. Have we mastered our 100 high frequency words yet? Who is our champion speller and can spell them all?
This week’s story is the…
The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch by Rhonda and David Armitage
Please choose from the following activities that you would like to do:
- There are lots of interesting words in the story (e.g. brazen, ingenious, consolingly). Can you find any words that you don’t know and write a definition of them?
- Mr Grinling is an ‘industrious’ lighthouse keeper. What does this mean? Can you think of any words that mean the same thing?
- Write a recipe for something that might go into Mr Grinling’s lunch.
- Write a set of instructions that teach someone how to make a delicious sandwich for Mr Grinling’s lunch.
- The lighthouse keeper’s lunch is ‘delicious’. Can you think of any synonyms? Can you think of any antonyms?
- Retell the story from the point of view of one of the seagulls.
- The seagulls are ‘scavenging’. What does this mean?
- The lunch was ‘devoured’ by by the seagulls. Can you make a list of words which show different ways that people can eat their food?
- Write a new story about Fred, Tom and Bert (the seagulls) and an adventure that they might have.
- Role play the different characters in the story (Mr and Mrs Grinling, Hamish the cat, the seagulls). How were they feeling at different points in the story?
I thought we would keep with the theme for our Foundation Subjects and again choose what you would like to do…
- Plan a healthy lunch for the lighthouse keeper.
- Plan and carry out an investigation to find out the strength of different materials. Which would be best to protect the lighthouse keeper’s lunch?
- Explore the forces in action when Mr Grinling rows his boat out to the lighthouse. What forces are in action when his lunch is being carried along the wire?
- The bulb in the lighthouse is a source of light. Can you think of anymore?
- Use electrical circuits to power a light. Could you add this to a lighthouse model?
- Use a paint package to decorate the lighthouse PNG image
- Design a device which will stop the seagulls from stealing the lighthouse keeper’s lunch.
- Create a new basket to hold the lighthouse Keeper’s lunch.
- Can you create your own working lighthouse model?
- Can you create a pulley system?
- Use a map / atlas to look for the locations of lighthouses in your local area.
- Find out about cliffs and other coastal features.
- Find out about the history of lighthouses. Why were they built? Where are they located?
- After learning about sea shanties, the other week can you write your own?
- Can you find some ‘sea’ music on Youtube and draw a picture of what you hear?

Summer Term – Week 4 – (Monday 11th May)
Summer Term – Week 3 – (Monday 4th May)
Welcome to May!
I hope everyone is well and staying safe. I would like wish all the boys and girls who had a birthday in April a ‘Happy Birthday’. Miss Richardson celebrated her birthday in lockdown and it was very different to normal but I managed to see my family and received plenty of cake. On each new walk Miss Richardson catches a new sign of Spring – last week I saw the calves in the field and different types of flowers are emerging. In my planter my ‘sweet pea’ shoots are starting to pop through and I have taken up a hobby, something which I haven’t since I was 9…knitting. Have you taken up a new hobby or learnt to do something new?
‘Grandad’s Island’ by Benji Davies following our study of The Storm Whale we are going to look at a new Benji Davies book. This one is very colourful and has an underlying theme that only one or two of us may realise.
You can watch the story on YouTube
Let’s Start the book as we normally would at predict what we think it is about…
Look at the characters carefully – what do you see? Who could they be? What animals are in the picture? Where do you think they are? What do you think the story is about?
Let’s think about Grandad…
Looking at these pictures what can we learn about Grandad? What are his likes and dislikes? What are is hobbies? Where do you think he has visited? What did he used to do for a job?
Write a character description about Grandad.
Using the last picture above…Can you draw what you think is behind the door?
Syd and his Grandad finally arrive at the island. Has anything changed about Grandad? Do you think Grandad has been here before? Why do you think he wanted to go back to his favourite place? Do you have a favourite place? Can you write about it using describing words so that Syd would want to visit this place with you?
Can you design and label a shelter that you would live in on the island?
Your mental maths challenges can be found here if you grown-ups have a printer to print them off http://www.mental-arithmetic.co.uk/Year-1.htm

Science – Parts of a Flower
You can use the worksheet below or alternatively draw a plant showing – roots, stem, leaves, petals (flower) and soil. Can you label your plant?
Art – Creating a Beach Landscape
Computing – Creating a Photostory
This is really tricky – you could use the story of Grandads Island or The Storm Whale. Alternatively choose 3 parts of your new daily routine.

You will need playdough for this…
Makes 1 coloured ball
Prep 10 minutes
You will need
- 8 tbsp plain flour
- 2 tbsp table salt

- Pour the coloured water into the flour mix and bring together with a spoon.
- Dust a work surface with a little flour and turn out the dough. Knead together for a few minutes to form a smooth, pliable dough. If you want a more intense colour you can work in a few extra drops of food colouring.
- Store in a plastic sandwich bag (squeeze out the air) in the fridge to keep it fresh.
History – Living History
Can you write about a memorable experience that has happened to you during lockdown? Could it be a poster you have made for your window? Listening and joining in with the clapping on a Thursday night? Watching Captain Tom walk his 100 lengths – I have loved this!
Geography – Landmarks of London
Can you choose a landmark of London? It could be because of it’s history or by the way it looks. Can you recreate this landmark? You could you use paints or felt tip pens, recycling and create a model of your landmark.
Music – Body Percussion
Have a go at sequencing your own body percussion piece of music – clapping, tapping , hitting your knees, clapping, tapping and stomping your feet etc.
RE – Friendship
Can you draw a picture of you and your friends? Write one nice thing about each of your friends. Is it because they always want to play with you, is it because they like your drawings or is it because they always look after you.
