Thursday 14th May

Good morning!  


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: 

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.  



Write a few sentences finishing off that first sentence. You can colour in or draw a picture when you’ve finished! 

10:30 – 11:00 


11:00 – 12:00 

Science AYOC  

LO: to identify different plants. 

SC1: I can name some name and describe plants in my surroundings.  

SC2: I can define what deciduous and evergreen trees are.  

SC3: I can understand how plants can grow from vegetables and fruit scraps.  

We have thought about the parts of a plant and what plants need to grow and survive. Now we are going to have a look at the different plants we have all around us.  

Watch this video which is about all of the plants around us:  

We would like you to go into your garden or on a walk and see which different plants you can spot. There is a checklist attached as a PDF or you could just go out and write down/draw what you find. We can’t wait to see what you find!  

In the video we learn about 2 different types of tree. One was called an evergreen, what does this mean? The other is called a deciduous tree, what does this mean?  

Can you find an evergreen and deciduous tree on your plant hunt? It might be tricky at this time of year because in the Spring most trees have their leaves.  

Challenge: If you found a plant that you didn’t know the name of or haven’t seen before, can you research it and see if you can find out about the plant? Then write a few sentences about it.  

12:00- 1:15 



Mental maths 

How quickly can you guess the number? 

I’m thinking of a number … it is an odd number … it is part of our counting in 5’s … it has one ten … have you guessed it yet? One more … it has 5 ones. What’s my number? 

I’m thinking of a number … it has 3 tens … it is an even number … it is bigger than 32 … it is less than 35 … have you guessed it yet? One more … it has 4 ones. What’s my number?  

See if you can make one for Miss Theobald and Miss Cuss to guess! Write it down and email it to us!  

1:30- 2:30 

Maths – volume and capacity  

LO: to understand volume and capacity  

SC1: I can explain what volume means. 

SC2: I can explain what capacity means. 

SC3: I can solve volume and capacity problems.  

We have thought about measurement. Can you tell an adult what measurement means?  

We have looked at weight and mass. Can you tell an adult what weight and mass mean?  

Today we are going to look at 2 more types of measurement. These are called volume and capacity, and these are usually used for measuring liquids. What are liquids?  

Watch this video about volume and capacity:

The capacity is how much a container can hold.  


The bath holds more water than the water bottle, so the bath has a bigger capacity. Can you find 2 containers in your home and explain to an adult which one has a bigger capacity? 


The volume is how much a container is holding.  

We use the words: full, empty, half full, nearly full, nearly empty to describe the volume.  

Have a go at matching these words to the correct bottle:  

You could find a bottle or container in your home and see if you can fill it to these different volumes.
