Today we are going to learn about words that start wh. In these words the h is silent. Watch the video below then write a list of words that start with wh. Once you have your list, try writing each one three times to learn them.

English 1 - Regular past tense


Today we are recapping past tense. The lesson below is from the Oak Academy and goes through verb tense. Watch that first as an introduction.

When you have finished you can have a look at the lesson presentation below and try one of the learning tasks on a piece of lined paper. You might like to just do 5 sentences.

English 2 - Irregular verbs


Continuing our double English today, below is a lesson from Oak Academy focusing on irregular verbs. These are verbs that don't follow the rule of adding -ed to make them past tense. Watch the video below.

Now you can try one of the learning tasks below. You might just like to try 5 sentences.



We have started learning about the polar regions. Today you are going to find out about the climate in polar regions.

Yesterday you started to look at words starting with wh-.


There are several question words start with wh-.









Write a question using each of the words. Remember to finish each with a question mark. You write a question mark like this: ?

English 1


Yesterday you looked at using past tense correctly. In the first part of English today, you will be writing the start of Brave and the Fox and correcting mistakes with the verbs. Look through the lesson presentation below then try to complete one of the tasks onto a piece of paper.

English 2


In the second part of today's lesson, you are going to try to use past tense and improve the part of the story when Brave has to jump over the ice to safety. Look through the lesson below then try to write 5 sentences about Brave escaping from the breaking ice. Make it dramatic and think about what could go wrong. Could she nearly slip into the water? Could the ice move? Could she lose her balance? Could she fall over? Also think about how she would be feeling. Was her heart racing? Was she terrified of falling in the freezing water?


You can use some ideas from the helper sheet to start your sentences. Remember you don't need to use all of them - just pick the ones you think are best.


This task has been also set on Teams so you can submit your work for feedback.

Science - Characteristics of living things


Last week in Science you found out about how we know things are alive. Use the video below to recap the 7 life processes.


Click here to watch the video with Mrs Fankland.




Today you are going to be learning about words with the /f/ sound make by ph. In words like phonics, the ph makes a f sound so it sounds like fonics when you say it. Watch the video below then try the activity sheet. You can complete it on a piece of paper or print it and complete it on the sheet.

Maths 1 - Doubles


Today you are going to learn about doubles. When you double a number it is the same at multiplying by 2. 


Double 1 is 2

Double 2 is 4

Double 3 is 6

Double 4 is 8


and so on.


Watch the video below. The worksheets for the lesson are available below if you have access to a printer or write down your answers on a piece of paper.

When you have watched the video, you can try to complete some of the questions below. There is a mild, spicy or hot option.

Maths 2 - Multiplication sentences from pictures


We use the x symbol to represent multiplication calculations. 


We can write 3 x 2 to represent 3 lots of 2 or 3 multiplied by 2. 


Watch the video below then try the worksheet. You can complete this on a piece of paper if you do not have a printer.

Science - Living, no longer alive and never alive.


In the last Science lesson, you found out about the 7 life processes. Watch the BBC video below to recap the processes and about how things can be alive, never alive or no longer alive.

When you are happy you know the differences between things that are living, were never alive and are no longer alive, can you think of things that fit into each category? 


For example


Alive - birds, trees, 

Never alive - cup, stones, window

No longer alive - paper (made from trees), wooden desk (made from a tree) or salad in the fridge.


You can use the table below or draw your answers on a piece of paper.
