Tuesday 28th April

Good morning Galileo class and parents!


I hope you had another great day yesterday. Today you have some English, Maths and Art activities to complete. Don't forget to start your day by doing some exercise with Joe Wicks, it's a great way to start the day smiley


Today's plan:


Phonics and reading

10am – watch live Set 2 Speed Sounds lesson and Set 2 Spellings.

10.30am - watch live Set 3 Speed Sounds lesson and Set 3 Spellings.


Use the link to access the live Speed Sound lessons



Read ‘Dragon Bay OR Greedy Tiger’ a second time ( After  you have read the ebook complete the two activities at the top of the ebook. This is a great way to check your understanding of the book you have read.


Today I would also like you to listen and watch the story 'Traction Man is Here'. This is a story you will be doing some writing about later in the week with Mrs Davies and also links to your art activity for this afternoon.

Link to the story Traction Man is Here:


The maths lesson today focuses on multiplication arrays. Please complete lesson 1 of the PowerPoint presentation and download the sheets named 'Practical Arrays'.

Children are to select a task card and build an array using the pictorial representations shown. Children will describe the array:
There are ____ on each row.
There are ____ rows.
There are ____ altogether.
Children are then to write a repeated addition number sentence to represent the array. 


If your child is finding this concept difficult use apparatus you have in your home to do this practically e.g create arrays using Lego pieces or pencils. 


Choose the star level you feel is best for you. Once you have completed the worksheet then there is an extra challenge called 'Activity Arrays'. 


Today I would like you to think about the story of Traction Man and be creative! I know last week you had the challenge of creating a costume for an action figure. Today I have a few different activities for you to consider doing. Choose as many activities as you like:

  • Design a new action figure and name them.
  • Label the action figure with the super powers it has.
  • Create a cartoon strip of a mission it may complete.
  • Design a special box which the action figure could have been packaged in. Look at toy boxes you have for inspiration.


Please share your creative work with us either by email or the Galileo blog. We love it when you share your work and we miss seeing you each week.


Have a fun day.
