Before Mrs Altoft shows you today’s learning, I would just like to say a HUGE well done to absolutely EVERY single one of you for your efforts since Christmas. It has been remarkable and I couldn’t be more proud. This period of time has been difficult and is not anything anyone of us could have imagined. However, for me, seeing what you have all completed, how you have dealt with this time and the effort you have put in regardless of being stuck at home has honestly kept me going everyday. You have been amazing and I am really looking forward to seeing you ALL next week – this time for good hopefully (hard work continues however!). Now onto today’s work.

Guided Reading: In this lesson we read part of the climax and consider how the scene and atmosphere changes as the story progresses. We reflect upon our previous predictions and the genre of this text

Maths: Today we are going to focus on finding a percentage of an amount which will lead us nicely into next weeks Maths. Again the usual routine before uploading to seesaw.

Worksheet: Again the worksheet is available on seesaw to complete.

Hi, Mrs Altoft here again today with your FINAL day of Home Learning and our second day of celebrating.

I have heard amazing things from your class teachers about your work yesterday – lets have another great day today!

Before we get started with today’s activities, please make sure your book cover/picture you made yesterday is visible in a window/in your garden for all to see from outside – it will be needed in Activity 2.

Activity 1 – We are going to start the day with a D.E.A.R session – we are going to DROP EVERYTHING AND READ!

This morning, I would like everyone, whether at home or at school, to find something interesting to read and build a den or find a cosy spot and then READ!

Perhaps you could make a crown to wear while you read.

Or some bunting to decorate your den.

Remember to share your photos on Seesaw/Evidence Me so we can see you all reading – I hope to make a display back at school.

Activity 2 – So, yesterday I set you the challenge of creating a book cover/picture for one of the following books and then asked you to display it in a window or your garden. The books of choice were…

Little Red Riding Hood

Jack and the Beanstalk

Goldilocks and the 3 bears

The Ugly Duckling

Today I would like you to go on a walk around the village to see what book covers you can see.

As you walk, please make a tally chart of the different books you find – you will need the results for the next part of the activity.

When you return from your walk, I would like you to create a graph to show which book you found the most. You could use Purple Mash or make a bar graph or pictogram. Year 5/6 perhaps you could really challenge yourself and create a pie chart.

Activity 3 – The official illustrator for World Book Day 2021 is Rob Biddulph. If you are currently in my class, or were in my class last year, you will know that I love to try drawing like the artist himself by following his videos. For our final activity I would like you to try a ‘Draw with Rob’.

Here is the link to his you tube channel…choose a video and get drawing!

Here is my Odd Dog Out…

So, that’s it! You have finished your home learning journey!! WE WILL SEE YOU ALL BACK AT SCHOOL ON MONDAY!!!!!


World Book Day are holding a competition asking you to share photos from World Book Day. There are 4 different categories shared over 4 weeks – please share some of the fab work you have completed with your child.

More information can be found on the following link.

Thank you again to you and your parents for keeping going and doing such a fantastic job.

Mr B
