Good morning Beavers,

How are you today? I hope all is well!

Thank you for sending me your mind maps for challenge 2-they are great. Just make sure you answer the questions set, especially the skills you will need to use. Look at my two mind map examples if you need any further guidance (under Monday 30th March.)

I'm looking forward to seeing your final designs for your Easter cake. Keep your presentation high - aim to be the best you can be. We will celebrate the work you send me. 

Remember to check you have the ingredients you need as ideally tomorrow (Wednesday) you will be making your Easter cakes. 

As always, any problems, or questions, I'm just an email away. 

9.00 - 9.30

Can you please do 15 minutes of TTRockstars and 15 minutes of Mathletics.

9.30 - 10.00 -  Guided Reading Guided Reading (If the link doesn't work, I have attached the text and questions down below for The Wild Robot) 

10.00 - 11.00 - Literacy

LO: To write a scene description.

SC1: I can use prepositional phrases

SC2: I can describe the senses

SC3: I can excite the reader by using high level descriptions

Rewrite chapter 9, your version of what Roz saw and did on the mountain. Using prepositional noun phrases and descriptions of the senses.

Prepositional noun phrases are groups of words containing propositions, which describe where something is. Example: Suddenly a blur dashed across the dusty shrubbery.

Like in class, remember to think about what the character is doing and imagine you are the character to help you to describe. What can Roz see? What can Roz hear? What can Roz touch? What can Roz smell? What would Roz be able to taste?

Please use the resource below to help you with creating prepositional phrases and describing the senses.

11.00 - 11.30 Break

Do something to get some energy out of the children for example Joe Wicks is releasing a work out video every Monday - Friday. Then spend the last 5 minutes getting them calm again. For example is there something they could tidy or draw or sit and read for 5 minutes. It is important they are calm again.

11.30 - 12.15 - Maths

LO: To be able to add fractions together

Adding fractions is much easier than you think. Have a look at this video telling you how to do it.

Key information: The denominator does not change. Remember does not stand for a number but what an amount has been split into. The numerator tells you how many you have and that is why you only add the numerator. The denominator does not change!

Have a go at these chilli challenges below.

The challenge is to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers.

12.15 - 1.15 Lunch

1.15 - 2.15 - Mrs Mitchell and Miss Fermor's new challenge!

I would like to you start to think about what you already know to do with making a cake. Method? Basic ingredients? What do you need to know? Finally, what have you chosen to do? 

I have chosen to make a blackberries and cream Easter cake.

Now that I have chosen what I'm going to do, I'm going to do some research on what I need to make the best filling. (Links back to what I need to know in previous mind map). I also researched how to pipe - the new skill I want to become an expert at.

Then I researched the different types of decoration I wanted to master. You can use pictures from the Internet too.

If you haven't already, create and annotate your final design of you cake so that someone else could recreate it themselves.

Finally, don't forget to start a bank of key vocabulary you have learnt along the way.

2.15 - 3.00

Penpals - (If you haven't written one already)

Over the weekend Mrs Butler has been in contact with our local care home 'Lavender Fields', who would love to receive some letters from you to keep up their spirits.

Your task is to write a letter which you can post to them. (This can include drawings too) On the envelope please could you write:

‘A Resident at Lavender Fields'

C/o Lisa Earwaker, 

High Street,


Sevenoaks TN15 0AE

On the back of the envelope, please write: From a Pupil @Seal CE Primary School. 

Then the manager will make sure your letters get safely given to one of the residents just in time for Easter!

3.00 - 3.15 - Reading
