As we have had a lovely sunny half term rest, this week we will continue to work on words starting ‘ex’ and there will be a test on Friday. Revisit the tutorial from last term to refresh your memory.

Guided Reading

LO: To investigate unfamiliar words

SC1: I can read an unfamiliar text.

SC2: I can find out the meaning of unfamiliar words

SC3: I can apply these into sentences


Here is the link to today’s guided reading on a Revolting Rhyme! The pages from the text and the words to investigate follow.







9:50-10:30 on

LO: To be able to identify the features of a script
SC1: I can understand what a script is
SC2: I can identify the purpose of a script
SC3: I can 


For this week we are going to be looking at scripts as we are going to create one for our challenge. 

This is a script! I have attached this as a pdf if you would like to download it and view it better. 

I would like you to think about what is here. How does this differ from narrative (stories). 

I have attached another pdf of a script. For this lesson, I would like you to look through both of the scripts and come up with as many features of a script as you can. We are going to use this as our checklist throughout the week to help us when we are writing scripts. 


For example:

The name of who is talking comes at the beginning. 

The name is always followed by a colon.


If you struggle with this/ you want to see if you managed to find all of the features, then I have attached a video. See if you were correct. I would really like you to try and find some of the features before you watch the video. Give it a go. 







Break time/snack time

11:00 – 11:30


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

11:30 – 12:15


Arithmetic starter

LO: To revise the concept of a fraction

SC1: I know the difference between the numerator and the denominator

SC2: I know what a unit fraction and a non-unit fraction are

SC3: I can draw visual representations for fractions


Here is the tutorial for today’s fraction recap- please excuse the blueness of the video… the lounge lighting was playing up!







Please find attached the fluency questions and the reasoning challenges after. Hopefully today will ease you in gently!

Reasoning questions


12:15- 1:15


1:15 - 2:00

LO: To be able to identify features of egyptian life
SC1: I can identify the importance of the Nile
SC2: I can understand the physical geography of Egypt
SC3: I can create links between Egyptian life and the physical geography


For this lesson I would like you to research the land of Egypt. Literally. How did their surroundings affect their way of life? 

For example, 

  • They live in Africa, a very hot continent. How did they cope with living in such hot conditions? 

  • How did they farm the land?

  • What animals would they hunt for food?

  • How did the Nile help them?

  • What dangers did they face from wild animals? 

Can you use your knowledge of non-fiction text to present your findings. Make sure you include:

Pictures and captions
Bullet points

2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!


Story time!

Here is today’s chapters from ‘The Ice Monster’ read by Miss Smurthwaite. She will be reading to you all this week.
