Key Stage 2 teachers need your help!


Hello KS2,

The current lockdown has been a difficult time for everyone. So, to help in a small way and to put a smile on your faces we thought that it would be nice to put together a video for all the children at Seal Primary school. It is a video, which we hope will provide a motivational message to everyone and one which will give you the opportunity to support each other.

For this video, we want every child in KS2 to create a motivational poster (I have attached some examples below). These posters should send messages of support, hope and they can wish everyone well. Once we have received all the messages we will put them into a music video.

We would like you to take your time over your posters and to show great pride in your work. Make your posters bold and colourful and you can use an art media of your choice, from pencil to paint to collage. We would recommend that you first plan your ideas before eventually creating your final piece of work.


IMPORTANT: When taking a picture of your work you must check that the image is clear and that we can read your message. Please do not show a photographic image of yourself in the picture. If you do, we will not be able to use your artwork.


Here are some examples of possible messages:





Please complete your poster, photograph it and send your image to your class teacher by Friday 5th February 2021.

If you have any questions please contact your class teacher.

LO: To be able to understand features of persuasive writing. (UNDERSTAND)

SC1: I can identify what makes a persuasive piece of writing.

SC2: I can plan using persuasive features.

SC3: I can make language choices which appeal to the target audience.




Task 1-  we begin by looking at a good example of persuasive writing. Is there anything you can magpie from the good example and add to your own plan?

Task 2- Testimonials. The good example used testimonials really effectively so I’d like you to add them to your work too. You’ll find different levels of challenge for this task on today’s page. I also share an example with you in the lesson’s tutorial.

Task 3- Checking your plan against the checklist. Ensuring that your plan contains all of the learnt features is really important. Use the checklist, and the different levels of challenge, to ensure you have done this effectively.

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. 

In guided reading today, we begin looking at prediction. Predictions must be based on evidence from the text which is a skill you’ve practiced with your inference and retrieval lessons. 

Watch the video on this website. You will need to complete the prediction task given to you during the video but nothing else on the website. When you have completed the video, I would like you to move on to today’s shorter task, practising your prediction skills. Making predictions using context - Year 6 - P7 - English - Catch Up Lessons - Home Learning with BBC Bitesize - BBC Bitesize 

Pick your level of challenge from the table below. 




Watch the video of me reading the text.


Use words and pictures to explain what has happened in this part of the text. 

Read today’s text which is attached to the bottom of this page.

Answer the following questions. 

1.       What is happening in this part of the text?

2.       Why did the boys get the mercy of staying for one more night?

3.       Identify a key point which may be helpful in identifying what may happen next.

11:45 – 12:45


LO: To be able to use my knowledge of time
SC1: I can understand how to read the time
SC2: I can identify that there are 60 minutes in an hour
SC3: I can use jottings to help me 

For this lesson we are going to be looking at how to take away time. Again this is recapping what we already know and making sure that we understand it to the best of our ability. 

We would use this information in scenarios like - I need to be at school by 8:45 and it takes me 32 minutes to get there, what time do I need to leave. This is problem solving that we do daily. 



This lesson is very similar to the previous lesson, we will be using the same technique to work it out. I have attached a video for you below with worked examples to help. 


12:45- 1:45


1:45 - 2:30


LO: To be able to know how sound is made
SC1: I can understand what vibration is
SC2: I can identify how energy works in sound
SC3: I can work scientifically

Right, our first experiment… We will be spending the next couple of weeks doing as many experiments as we can and working scientifically with them. We will learn about sound AND how to be a scientist. 

Have a look at this video on the BBC website to introduce you to the knowledge you are going to need for this experiment.

Watch the Video I have done to talk you through the experiment. I have also included the steps below to help you if you need it. 



Step 1: 

Gather your apparatus, for this experiment you are going to need: 

  • A Bowl

  • A piece of silver foil/kitchen foil 

  • Some rice or lentils or something small and hard

  • A metal pan

  • Something to hit the metal pan that will make a noise.

Step 2: 

Write the title

An experiment to show that sound is vibration

Step 3: 

Put your sub-heading hypothesis but do not write it yet. 

Step 4: 

Put a sub heading Apparatus and put in the apparatus you used. 

Step 5:

Put a sub heading Method and write up step by step what you are going to do. Refer back to the video if you need to. Make sure to use words like First, then, next, after to begin your sentences with

Step 6: 

Write up your hypothesis, what do you think will happen. 

Step 7: 

Do the experiment. Follow your method and observe what happens. This is very important, you need to look closely at what happens 

Step 8: 

Write up your table of results. Look again at the video to see my modelled example

Step 9: 

Write up your conclusion, this must refer back to your hypothesis. Explaining what you saw and how you know now that sound is vibration.
