Daily Work – 31/03/20

Mar 31, 2020COVID-19


Hello Tuesday and hello fabulous Nursery. The nursery team have been glued to their computers, enjoying reading your comments and looking at super photographs and video clips.  They put lots of smiles on each of our faces. Thank you and keep them coming!

Your morning challenge: Let’s practice some counting! How many chairs are in your house? How many windows are in your house? How many televisions are in your house? What else can you count?

Go on a number hunt- search for numbers around the house (clocks, books/magazines, car registration, oven, washing machine). If it’s safe to be outside, can you see any numbers on doors or even buses? Can you record the numbers on paper?

In the afternoon: Ask your grown up to gather an object from each room and your challenge is to return them to the appropriate room e.g. toothbrush from the bathroom, teddy from their bedroom, cup from the kitchen?

Next, hide objects around the room and describe where it is e.g. “It’s under something red” so that your grown up can find it. Take turns so that you can both find and hide objects.  Have fun!


Good morning Reception. We loved seeing lots of familiar faces yesterday so a HUGE thank you for posting your photos. They really did bring some extra happiness to our day. We also loved seeing the photos of your dens! They looked very comfy and the perfect place for snuggling and relaxing!

This morning we would like you to complete activity 8 on task board 1.

Work with a grown up to follow a recipe. Share what you have made with your family.

Tell us what you made and what it tasted like!

Last week we read comments about some of you making sausage rolls, Yorkshire puddings and brownies so we wonder what you can rustle up today?

This afternoon:

Hopefully you will have seen the photograph from last week showing how well some of our beans are growing!

This afternoon we would like you to help a grown-up in the garden or have a look online at plants. What do plants need to grow? If you have some seeds can you plant them? You might like to have a look at the following video clip: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zcn9j6f

We look forward to seeing what you get up to today.

Sending lots of happy smiles, Mrs Cassidy and Miss Cavanagh.

Year 1

Morning! We hope you enjoyed yesterday’s tasks, we loved looking at what you got up to at the weekend! Why don’t you start your day with a Zumba workout? We will be joining in too!  https://family.gonoodle.com/activities/happy  

Maths Task
For your Maths task today, we’d like you to continue with your NumBots journey. We’ve been on and have seen that lots of you are making fantastic progress. Remember we are focusing on accuracy. Have fun! 

English Task
Keep tuning in to join your speed sounds lesson online:
Miss Thompson’s group – Set 1
Mrs O’Hara and Mrs Harm’s groups – Set 2
Miss Bunce, Miss Jobey and Mrs Neve’s groups – Set 3 

In your pack, you have a ‘Design a Gingerbread Man’ sheet. Today, we would like you to decorate your gingerbread person however you would like! What are their eyes like? Do they have hair? Are they wearing a spotty T-shirt? Then, when you are happy with your design, think about adjectives (describing words) to describe them. You could write these around the outside or make your own list. This will help you for tomorrow’s task. Remember to use your speed sounds in your pack and fred your words out carefully!
Afternoon Task 
This afternoon, we’d love you to have a go at drawing around shadows (Google – Shadow drawing project if you want ideas). Simply take a blank piece of paper into the garden or somewhere light and place an object at the top then draw around the shadow. Why not leave it there overnight/ a few hours and see if the shadow has moved? If you are interested in finding out more about shadows, then watch this. (Note to grown-ups: this video is for slightly older children, but we know Year 1 are very inquisitive!)

Have a wonderful day and stay safe! 

Miss Bunce and Miss Thompson 

Year 2

Good morning, Year 2!  We hope that you’re all still smiling – we’re sure that you are! We loved seeing your photos and comments under yesterday’s post so please keep adding them! Photos or comments, we’d love to read them and see what you’ve been up to.

Maths – a recent unit that we have just completed was…fractions! So today, we’d like you to find the worksheet called ‘Half and half’ and ‘Sharing sweets’ (it’s double sided).  Remember, the denominator (bottom number) is very helpful! When finished, log on to Times Table Rockstars  to practise your times tables – How many coins can you collect today?

English –  we’re focusing on spelling those tricky common exception words today so find the worksheet called ‘Common exception words (2)’ and use the first side to practise spelling the 10 words three times each. This will help the spellings to stick in your head! Next, turn over and complete the ‘challenge’ side. It will ask you to complete some sentences, using the common exception words that you have just practised so test yourself and try not to peek at the first side.

When you’re done, let’s keep up our brilliant phonics work and use the link https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo7fbLgY2oA_cFCIg9GdxtQ?fbclid=IwAR2zPh6YahiI_fOxLD_ikMQES-EWj_l_6L8MYTCYYUYMBv-1DePkw5_7–E and choose a Set 3 sounds video if you have an orange, yellow, blue or grey reading book. Even if you’ve finished Read, Write Inc reading books, it’s always good to have a practise! If you have a green, purple or pink reading book, start with Set 2 video. They’re 10 minutes long but will keep up our fantastic Phonics work!

Afternoon – This afternoon, we’d like you to head outdoors, if you can, and collect an assortment of natural materials – stones, sticks, leaves and petals (that have fallen), see what you can find! First, use the items to make each letter of the alphabet in lower case then make each letter as a capital letter. Afterwards, use your collection of materials to make a picture! It could be a member of your family, yourself, your favourite animal, be creative! Remember to take pictures so that we can see your brilliant creations!

You’re doing so well, Year 2! Keep it up; we are so proud of you.

From Mrs Bainbridge and Miss Jobey

Year 3

Year 3 Tasks Tuesday 31st March 2020

Morning folks! Hope you’re getting fit and healthy each morning with Joe Wicks or finding other ways to get some exercise in. We really enjoyed reading the hunter gatherer diaries you wrote on Purple Mash last week – thank you to those children who left us a message with their work and responded to our marking! It was lovely to see you ‘talking’ to us even if we can’t hear you 😊

Task 1

Maths – Find the squared paper sheet with ‘Multiplications’ written at the top. Set these out as a column. Make sure you write the ones and the tens in the correct column and check the examples at the top of the sheet before you start to remind you how to do this.


Task 2

English – First, we’d like you to find the sheet headed ‘Creating adverbs using the suffix -ly’ (it’s the one with the word search on). Find the adverbs in the word search then write a few sentences containing some of them in your blue writing book.

We’ve set you a new 2do on Purple Mash for this week – write us a set of instructions about how to make crispy cakes. Try to remember all the features of instruction writing that we’ve learnt this year and previously and don’t forget to use imperative (bossy) verbs to tell the reader exactly what to do and when. The word list at the side will help you. See if you can use any adverbs in your instructions.

Task 3

Geography – Find the Geography Mapwork sheets in your pack. The instructions are attached to compare the old map and the modern map. Don’t forget to practise your directional/locational vocabulary, e.g. ____ is south of the ______.

Year 4


Good morning Year 4!  It was lovely for us to log onto PurpleMash yesterday and see so many of you whizzing through the activities set!  We just checked Times Table Rockstars and WOW, it was a very close competition!  Well done to the ‘4C Boys’ and ‘4W Girls’ for winning the tournaments.  Our new battle against Year 5 is up and running and currently we are in the lead – Will it stay this way?  Will Year 5 catch up?  Keep it up Year 4!

Your tasks:

Maths – First, we would like you to complete pages 8-17 in your CPG Key Stage 2 Maths book. Ask an adult to check your work using the answers page at the back of the book. If you have any answers incorrect, practise the calculation 10 times on a piece of paper!  Then log onto Times Table Rockstar and show off your times table knowledge!

English We would like you to continue working on English activity 3. Once finished, read through your work and check that you have included everything from the success criteria in your pack.
