Monday 29th June

Hello everyone....Another week of home learning in lockdown!  Keep up the great work!

Remember to check on purple mash for 2dos, complete an IDL lesson if you have a log in and try to improve your TT rockstar scores.  The children who are working in school are quite competitive about this.  Play 10 games in the Studio to get a score and then work on it daily to improve. 



This week we are going to be looking at words that contain the grapheme "ou".  This is a tricky grapheme as it can sound lots of different ways within words. These sound like a short "u". So, your 10 words to learn this week are:

young rough trouble tough double touch country couple courage enough


Write them 3 times in your book.


English Theme Up Up and Away

This is the first of a two week unit defying gravity! Explore poems, stories and movies themed around the air and flying. Find facts and delve into the history of flight. You might possibly end up being blown away!


  • Watch and enjoy the short film, Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore
  • Watch again up to 4:33 mins.
  • Think about verbs that could describe how the man is moving/flying in the storm and how the books are flying later on, e.g. twirling, swirling, tumbling. Use a thesaurus to find synonyms (words with a similar meaning) for your words. The word hippo website at the bottom of the page is great for this!
  • Write these synonyms down. Create an ‘ing’ poem about flying using some of the verbs you have explored.Start off by describing what happened to Mr Lessmore at the start of the clip, e.g. how he was flying, not through choice and in a dangerous way.
  • Next, move on to describing the books flying in the air, e.g. they are purposeful and elegant.
  • Here is an example for you.

Whisked away by the gusts of wind,

Falling, gliding, tumbling, diving.

Trying to catch a hold,

Bumping, reaching, grabbing, plunging.

The elegant books soaring through the sky.

Gliding, drifting, hovering, fluttering.

Waiting for the right person to come along,

Coasting, skimming, floating, cruising.

  • Write your poem out neatly and decorate it with pictures of flying books around it.
