Wednesday 13th 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: 

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.  


Mental maths  

Play this game using the ‘in between 1 to 50’ setting:  

If 1 to 50 is too tricky, try 1 to 30.  

10:15 – 10:30 

Problem solving and reasoning  


Lo: to show my understanding of halving.  

10:30 – 11:00 



11:00 – 12:00 

English AYOC 

LO: to write a description of an observation. 

SC1: I can describe the features of a diary.  

SC2: I can write about an event in chronological order.  

SC3: I can use adjectives to describe what is happening.  

We have had a think about diary writing and what we need to include.  

Today we are going to write a description of what happens to plants as they grow, as this is what we will be doing for our plant diary when we plant our own plants.  

Here are some videos of plants growing: - bean - spinach  


Choose one of the videos to write about. What is happening to the plant? It would be great to use our adjectives (describing words) to help us explain what is happening.  

Write 5 sentences to describe what is happening to the plant throughout the video (you may need to pause the video to write what has happened, as they are quite fast). 

Challenge: can you stop the video halfway through and predict what will happen next?  

12:00- 1:15 



Cursive handwriting practise 


1:30- 2:30 

Maths - weight and mass 

LO: to solve problems on weight and mass 

SC1: I can accurately state if an item is heavier or lighter. 

SC2: I can read scales. 

SC3: I can solve problems using weight.  

We have been looking at measurement. Let’s have another look at weight and mass. These are different ways of measuring how heavy or light something is.  

Fun fact – your weight can change if you are in space! Whereas mass always stays the same, no matter what planet you are on or where in the world/galaxy you are! 

Inserting image...

We can use scales to measure weight and mass. What was the heaviest object you weighed yesterday? What was the lightest? 

Sometimes you can get scales that are used to compare weights. They look like this.
