Using squared paper and a lego figure, create a set of instructions to travel from one side of the paper to another. Develop the same skill using paving stones in your garden. Can a member of your family follow your instructions and arrive at the correct place?



Daily Literacywe are developing our reading skills.

We are developing our knowledge of descriptive writing.

Friday text- Read silently.


Task– Read the play out loud. Use the punctuation – speech marks, commas, exclamation marks, question marks and full stops. Follow the stage directions in brackets but don’t say these out loud.

Find three descriptive phrases that build up the suspense in the text.

Write down:

  •   What you liked about the text?
  •   What you disliked about the text?
  •   What puzzled you?
  •   Were there any connections or patterns you noticed?

Read the play with your family, one person being the narrator, setting the scene and others playing the characters.

Thank you all for sharing your learning!


Friday Drama Fun

Try these tongue twisters:

A big black bug bit a big black bear.

If a dog chews shoes, whose shoes does he choose?

Try to say them in a quiet voice or an angry voice.


Friday joke-

How does a scientist freshen her breath?

With experi-mints!


You know what we say on Friday-

Have a great long weekend and have a             weekend!
