Monday 18th May

Good morning!  


Today is another Monday and the new challenge video is up and running. Make sure you take a look!  


We will allot time on Friday for completing the challenge outcome. Throughout the week, we will be participating in learning which should help us when we get to the outcome day. We are aspiring, persevering, reflective learners, so we will be doing some work in our reflective journal throughout the week. To make sure you know which lessons are linked to our weekly challenge, we will mark the lesson with a  and AYOC to show it is part of The year of change activities.  


Please send us your work from the previous learning if you haven’t done so already. Have a good day! 





Wake up Shake up – please use this time to exercise.  

There are lots of different options, here are a few you could choose from: 

Joe Wicks - 

Cosmic yoga -  

Just dance -  

You could use this time to take a walk/bike ride as your daily exercise.  



Your child should start their phonics session by watching a video which introduces a new sound. The video can be found here:  

If the link doesn't work try clicking on this link and then click on either the YouTube link or the Facebook link on the first line.  

The videos are only streamed at certain times of the day and are set depending. The times are:  

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30am  

  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00am  

  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30am  

(It may be better to do mental maths and problem solving first and come back to phonics, if your video is at a later time) 

In terms of the reading section of the phonics lesson, Oxford Owl are making all the phonics books available online as ebooks. Here is the link  

Once you’ve clicked on the link then click on ebooks and then you need to register but it is completely free. Once registered you can then open all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child.  

This means you do not need to look at the RWI books on the school website and we will not be adding any further books there.   

Guided reading:  

If your child is not in a phonics group and instead does guided reading, please find newly uploaded texts on the Butterflies home learning page here:, please find today’s timetable and the text will be there.

First you need to watch the new challenge video!  

LO: to know what healthy means 

SC1: I can identify what we need for a healthy lifestyle.  

SC2: I know what a diet is.   

SC3: I can explain what a balanced diet means.  

This week our challenge is to create a healthy meal. But what does healthy mean?  

Watch this video:  

Can you tell an adult what healthy means? Can you name 3 things from the video that keep you healthy?  

We are going to be focusing on food this week and on Friday we are going to create a healthy meal.  

We must have a healthy diet. Our diet is the foods that we eat. 

Watch this video:  

As the video said, it is very important to eat lots of different types of food. We must have a blacked diet with lots of different types of food. 


Your task is to go into your kitchen. You are going to find some different foods, which would make up a balanced diet. You can look in your fridge, freezer, cupboards and pantry. What can you find? Can you find 3 items from each place? See if you can make a list of what you have. 

Watch this video to help you to understand the task:  

Make a mind map or list to show what you have found!  

Challenge: to have a healthy and balanced diet, should we eat the same amount of every single type of food?  

12:00- 1:15 



Cursive handwriting practise 

If you have received a Miss Cuss Smile or a Miss Theobald Star of the day last week from your teacher, then you can use this time to do an activity of your choice. 

Well done to the children who received smiles and stars of the day last week!

English  AYOC 

LO: to understand the impact of bossy words 

SC1: I can give some examples of bossy words.  

SC2: I can explain why we use bossy words.  

SC3: I can use bossy word to instruct.  

The week before last we looked at instructions and how clear they must be for others to understand. We used our time order words (first, then, next, after that, finally). We also have bossy words to help us with instructions.  

Watch this video about bossy words:  

Bossy words help us to tell people what we want them to do. We use these words in instructions and also in recipes. Like these:  

Can you pick out the bossy words and highlight them?  

Why have they used bossy words? 


It is your turn to use bossy words. We would like you to be bossy and make some instructions for somebody in your home to follow. Remember to use really bossy words. You are not asking them what to do, you are telling them. 



Reflective journal   

For your reflective journal time today, we would like you to write what your task is.  

What does healthy mean?  

What is a balanced diet?  

Any other vocabulary you have learnt about or want to.
