Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero

Tuesday 21st April

Good morning to you all,


I hope you had a good day yesterday and you are getting back into the swing of things, learning from home! Thank you so much for the regular updates via email and the class blog.


Today you have some reading, maths and music work to complete. I hope you have a great day. smiley


Phonics and reading

Today I would like you to read the story 'Escape of the Giant Chicken' for a second time. This time your reading should be more fluent and you gain a deeper understanding of the story. If you shared the reading with a grown up or brother/sister why not try reading more of the text yourself this time. Once you have read the story I would like you to complete the questions which you will find on the back cover of the book. Please write the answers to these questions in your home learning book. 


You will find this book by logging on to the Oxford Owl website ( and finding the ebook in the age range of 6-7 years. 


Please watch the Set 3 Speed Sounds lesson for today, it's good to keep reviewing your sounds and complete the spellings part of the lesson too. This starts at 10.30 but is available to watch for 24 hours so choose a different time to watch if you prefer. 


Speed Sounds lesson can be found at



The maths lesson today focuses on developing your understanding of equal parts.  Please complete lesson 2 of the PowerPoint presentation and then download the worksheets. Choose the star level you feel is best for you. Once you have completed the worksheet then there is an extra challenge to find different ways of showing equal parts. 




I thought you may like to learn some new lively fun songs. Out of the Ark (website) have made available some free songs, a different song for each day. These songs are great to learn as a family and each day has a different theme:


Monday - Move it Monday

Tuesday -Together on Tuesday

Wednesday - Wellbeing Wednesday

Thursday - Thinking Thursday

Friday - Fun Friday

Saturday - Family Saturday

Sunday - Faith-filled Sunday


Today it would be good if you could learn Tuesday's song from Week 1. The song is called 'Together'. You will find the link to the website below along with an activity page which can be completed linked to the song. Feel free to dip into these songs as often as you like. They are a super resource to have. 


If you want another activity to keep you busy then you could always make your own musical instrument to play whilst you sing. There is a resource below which can give you some ideas of instruments to make using resources you may have at home.
