Good morning everyone and welcome to our Friday learning activities.
Well done and thank you for all of your hard work this week. Mrs Rogers and I have loved seeing all of your work. I've just had a little peek and I can see there are some exciting emails waiting for me. I will be replying to them shortly! I was in school this afternoon and it is Francesca's 15th birthday today so I am very late starting this page tonight. Will I get it done before the morning? YES I WILL!
I've just had a look at the weather forecast and there is a strong possibility of snow tomorrow so I'm going with a wintry/ snowy theme for tomorrow!
What are we learning today?
- Grammar work - when to use a full stop and when to use a question mark.
- RE linked - writng our 'Big Question.'
- Speed Sounds with Rosie
- Maths - making our own version of a traditional game; snakes and ladders.
- PE - hopefully in the snow
- Wintry Art
The children in class yesterday were asking me if we could sing this. As we bring our Christmas themed Religion topic to a close, children at home - you can brighten your family's day by singing it to them. Children in school you can do some super star actions. We will offer our song as our morning prayer.
Our sentence work - when do we need question mark and when do we need a full stop?
Work your way through the powerpoint to learn/ remind yourself when each should be used.
Put your learning to the test with these questions. You can choose from a one star or three star challenge. I think the three star should actually be a 2!

Our Maths Learning Today
Let's warm ourselves up with a mathletic workout! If your mums or dads are missing the gymns being open invite them to join in!
A fun challenge today!
Snakes and ladders is a toy that has been around for a long time in some form or other. It has been especially popular for around the last 70 years and so is game your grandparents probably played.
You have to roll the dice and move your counter up the square all the way up to 100. There is good news if you land at the bottom of a ladder; you can go up it. BUT if you lnd on the head of a snake you have to slide down to the bottom of the snake.
Use your knowledge of counting to 100 to help you to create your own board on the blank number square. I enclose an example of a board below which you can use to help fill in your number square to 100. It also includes the net of a dice you can use to make your own.
Example of snakes and ladders board. You can use this if you are unsure about making your own. (Year 1's)
Below is a blank number grid that will go up to 100. Fill in your numbers; looking carefully at the example so your numbers follow in the correct direction. You do have a choice on whether you lay your board out like a normal number square (see above) or the example below has the numbers following directly on so you go from left to right or from right to left.
You then need to decide how long or short your ladders and snakes will be. Look how long some of these are!
Add your snakes and ladders, use a dice you have or use the net below and then see if a brother or sister, mum or dad would like to play a game with you. Good luck! I would love to see your board games if you could send me a photo!
My Maths homework will be set too.

Our afternoon activities
On Friday afternoons we usually have our outdoor PE session with Dan, so I'm going to encourage you to get outdoors for a walk, scooter or bike ride. If you have any snow enjoy playing in it!
Alternatively, Joe Wicks will be returning next week with his exercise classes. Until then here is a workout from our last home school time!
A Wintry Art Picture
I've put this in as an added extra. If you are inspired by the cold, crisp (possibly snowy) weather, then you can follow this video to create a beautiful picture.
You will need;
- Some masking tape (ask mum or dad)
- Water colours (pencils or poster paint will be ok too)
- A small amount of salt
Enjoy your day, well done for all of your hard work this week. Do share your work. I'd love to see your art work if any of you attempt the above.
