English: Today we are going to write an acrostic poem. You have seen these types of poems before. The word down the side is what the poem is about for example, this acrostic poem is about a meerkat:








From this the letter at the beginning will start the first letter of the word about meerkats. Thinking about some adjectives and adverbs for meerkats, the beginning lines could be something like:

Meerkats are hairy and small

Eating delicious insects quickly

Ears small and round listening carefully

Watch the following video for more information on acrostic poems


Maths: Watch the video and familiarise yourself with the different British coins If you have any at home, compare them and order them from smallest to biggest amount. On Purplemash, play the game 'calculating change from 10p'. Then complete the work; 'How much?'. 


Phonics: Today we are going to recap all of the alternate spellings for the sound /oa/. Remember they can be written the following ways: oa, ow, o-e and oe.

Log onto Purplemash and complete the quiz into choosing which spelling is correct the following pictures.


PSHE: For this activity, you need to discuss with an adult at home the following:

  • What is your full name?
  • What is your address?
  • When might people want to know these details? (Maybe if you are lost? Inviting a friend over to play? Writing a letter?)

The aim is for you to know your full name and address off by heart.
