Monday 4th May

Good morning to you all,


Welcome back to another week of learning from home! We are missing you all and hope that we get to see you all again soon. We want to say a big thank you and well done for all your efforts whilst learning from home both from all the wonderful Galileo children and parents! You are amazing us by the fantastic work you are doing and the fun you are having doing other activities. Keep up the great work and continue sharing with us.


The plan for today:


Phonics and reading

Please carry on joining in with the Set 3 Read Write Inc. lesson at 10.30am this morning. Make sure you do the spellings after learning the sound and words. 


Here is the link for the Read, Write Inc. lesson:


Today I would like you to read the non-fiction book called 'Flight or Fright?' ebook from the Oxford Owl website. You will be able to find the ebook by searching for it by the title. I thought you may enjoy this text as you will learn lots of facts about the history of flight. The text is fairly long so don't feel like you have to read the full book but use the contents page and select 4 or 5 pages you think sounds interesting. I would really recommend reading the page titled 'Fear in the Air' as it is all about hot air balloons!

When reading please look out for the icons shown below. When you click on these then you have videos to watch and questions to answer.


It's Monday, which means its time to have a little spelling test and start learning some new spellings! Please test your child on last weeks' spellings and set them a new set of spellings for this week. Remember to carry on practising any spellings your child struggled with previously. If you want your child to have an extra challenge use the words from the spelling lists to write sentences. 



Today's maths lesson is focusing on finding a third. Use the PowerPoint presentation lesson 4 to learn about thirds. Then complete the worksheet in your pack. If you want more challenge then please download the worksheets below (3 star sheets). There is also an additional activity called 'Find a third'.


In today's History lesson you are going to find out about the invention of trains and think about how they have changed over time. Use the slides to learn about trains and then complete 2C worksheet. The worksheet involves using sentences to compare trains past and present. If you want to challenge yourself further write notes of what trains were like in the past (worksheet 2D). You should find the worksheets in your home learning pack and some picture cards to help you with discussion. I wonder what new facts you will learn today!

Have a fantastic day and please share what you have been doing either by email or the class blog. smiley
