Thursday 11th March


Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond.


Phonics – Our sound of the week is l/ll/le/el/al/ol/il/ul. Thursday’s task is a wordsearch. Tigers have a wordsearch to complete too.  


Tables –I will post your tables on SEESAW which you can write down and try and then you can mark them yourself using the marking slide…no cheating.


Reminder: I’d like you to complete a Friday Assessment tomorrow which is in your home learning pack. I will call out your spellings on Seesaw – make sure you do the correct group. So spend some time learning all those calendar facts again. You’ll also have some homophones on your Friday Assessment too.  

Literacy – Christopher Columbus


Yesterday, you completed a comprehension all about Christopher Columbus. Today I’d like you to do some research on Columbus using the comprehension, the extra page of information in your pack or maybe the video from yesterday and PPT from today. Write your facts neatly into the circles on the page and then colour in Columbus. You also have a few word searches you can complete in your pack and a game you might like to play at home with someone.


I hope you enjoy learning about this famous explorer.


As an extension, have a go at the page about exploring. Would you like to be an explorer and if you were an explorer, what items would you take with you and why?

You may also like to play the following Kahoots to test your knowledge of Columbus too and a walk the plank game that you may enjoy!
