Thursday 10th December

Morning children!


Our penultimate (2nd last!) day of Online Learning!


Please see, below, our learning tasks for today (and tomorrow’s English). For more accessible tasks for some children, try the Table 2 activities.




You may wish to begin the day, with a Worship Video at Advent assembly - Light of the World | CAFOD


If possible, I would like you to work through the Teaching Live work with Pie Corbett, using these details, from 9.30am to 10.30am:


Join Zoom Meeting - Session 10

Meeting ID: 860 7017 6294
Passcode: 442408


For today AND tomorrow:

  • Using your plan from yesterday, please re-tell the story, using your own three visitors, different from the original story.
  • Use your Story Map to help you.
  • Use a thesaurus or to uplevel your language.
  • Include the inverted commas for speech, as you practised on Tuesday.
  • Include a range of accurate punctuation, including: , ! ? or even (  ) and
  • Use your very best handwriting!



Today, I would like you to spend 45 minutes each day on the MyMaths tasks on Time.


Please also try to access Times Tables RockStars and develop your skills. For children who have not yet passed their 2/5/10s, I have adapted your tasks to focus on these. If your parents can also read out the tables for you (with 3 second break each question) they can test your learning. Next week, we will resume listening tests in class.


In addition, you may to continue with the Times Tables Bonanza below.



Other Activities

Monday to Thursday

Other activities you may choose to do today, could be:

  • Art: Have a go at carefully copying the repeating patterns on the document below. Then try and produce your own version of a repeating pattern and – if possible – try to repeat the same pattern on a computer. This is a similar task to the one we did in Computing earlier, this term.


  • French: Practise your numbers to 20 and Colours by using the documents below. Learn the words, practise saying them (with a French accent) then test yourself.


  • Science 1: Research the Water Cycle. Use these videos:

The Water Cycle | Educational Video for Kids - YouTube

Water Cycle : The 3 phases Explained : Water Cycle Animation for Kids - YouTube

            And have a look at these pages:

What is evaporation and condensation? - BBC Bitesize

What is the water cycle? - BBC Bitesize

… and then show what you have learnt, in the form of a poster or information leaflet. Make sure you use the vocabulary eg. condensation, evaporation, water cycle. You could try drawing round a puddle with chalk, then repeat each couple of hours to see what happens – and explain why?


  • Science 2: Find out about what happens when you heat or cool objects eg. water, chocolate. Have a look at these resources:

What are freezing and melting? - BBC Bitesize

Could you plan an investigation and find out (with adult supervision)? Baking is always fun to do, with this learning! Record your findings, making sure you include the correct scientific vocabulary eg. heat, cool, temperature, thermometer, freezing, melting.
