Friday 12th February 2021

Happy Friday everyone! You've made it to the last day of a very unusual and challenging term. As you know, you were asked to produce motivational posters to inspire your friends and peers. We have collated all of the posters we received from the children across the federation and created the video below. We hope you enjoy it and that it makes you smile. 

Have a great half term everybody, and a well-deserved rest!

Make sure you complete 2 studio sessions and 2 sound checks before going on the garage. Feel free to challenge me!



LO: To be able to write persuasively for different purposes. (GROW)

SC1: I can identify and use persuasive features of writing.

SC2: I can use persuasive features to write for different purposes.

SC3: I can write including language which appeals to a varying target audience.


My tutorial will talk you through the steps of the lesson. You can watch it at the start of the lesson and then refer back to it as your progress through the slides.





Task 1-Using everything that you know about writing persuasively, how would you explain this to a child in year 3? There are prompts on the slide to guide your thinking and support your response.


Task 2 (main task)- Publishing. There are different levels of challenge for this task which relate directly to your confidence with letter writing.

There are 2 supporting resources-

Green challenge- 12.02.2021 Letter template

Orange challenge- 12.02.2021 Features of a letter checklist.


Task 3- Reflection. Use your launch page to help you decide whether you are able to write persuasively.

Extension- Judge which of your two final pieces is the most persuasive. This needs to be evidence based.

Guided Reading

LO: To be able to understand plausible predictions.

SC1: I can use the text to support my own predictions.

SC2: I can recognise which predictions are plausible and which are not.

SC3: I can make my own plausible predictions.

Pick your level of challenge from the table below.




Watch the video of me reading the text.


In chapter 15, we read about the fight between the green and purple monsters. Draw the fight based on the information we read in the text.

Read today’s text.


Answer the following questions. 

1. What happened in this part of the text?

2. Describe Hiccup’s plan.

3. At the end of the chapter, we read about the Green Death’s head rise above the cliff and turn. What do you think will happen next? Why?

Read today’s text.

Answer the following questions. Use evidence from the text in each response. 

1. Look at one of the predictions you made yesterday. Has what you’ve read today made you change this prediction?

2. What happened in this part of the text?

3. Describe Hiccup’s plan.

4. At the end of the chapter, we read about the Green Death’s head rise above the cliff and turn. What do you think will happen next? Why?




11:30 – 12:30


LO: To be able to use m knowledge of area and perimeter
SC1: I can identify how to find the area
SC2: I can identify how to find the perimeter
SC3: I can understand the difference between the two


For this lesson, there are two different tasks available. One is to practise and further develop your understanding of area and perimeter. The other is using your knowledge of perimeter and area to answer reasoning questions. 

Which you do is up to you and how to feel about area and perimeter.

If you would like a little more help with area and perimeter and feel you need a bit more time practising how to identify and calculate them, then have a look at this video and answer the chilli challenges below labelled area and perimeter 1 and 2



Things to remember

Area = width x length

Perimeter = around the outside of the shape. Add all of the sides together. 


Step 1 - Draw out your shape

Step 2 - label the sides you have on your shape

Step 3 - Fill in the missing sides with your knowledge of shape
 If it a square, all the sides are the same size
If it a rectangle opposite sides are equal

Step 4 - Work out the perimeter by adding up all of the sides. 

Step 5 - Work out the area by multiplying the length by the width. 



If you think you already understand area and perimeter really well then have a look at this video and answer the reasoning questions below labelled reasoning 1 and 2

We are measuring the distance we travel on foot, bike or scooter from the start of next week until the end of half term.  If you are out for a walk or run etc, please try and measure your distance, email me with your total at the end of half term and as a federation we will see how far we can travel!

Dear Beavers and Badgers,

Please look at the list I have attached and have a conversation with your family to discuss what types of behaviours help to form, maintain and sustain good friendships.

Have fun
