Foundation - Art @10am

It's time to draw-a-long with Rob! The draw-a-long is live at 10am, however the video will be added to the website if you would prefer to draw at a different time.


It is great to see all the different ways you are collating and displaying your 'Draw with Rob' pictures at home. Keep your pictures coming in on seesaw!

English - Balanced Arguments

Today we have a SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) lesson which focuses on adverbs of possibility.


Follow the instructions from the video- remembering to pause and complete the activities when asked to. Use the 'next activity' or green dots at the bottom of the page to navigate through. 


Try to add to your magpie page as you watch the video. Mrs Barr will give you a list of the 10 most common adverbs of possibility. Note these 10 down as they will help you in this lesson and provide a word bank for your independent writing tomorrow.


After completing your task - resume the video for feedback to self mark and edit your work before uploading on seesaw.


If you have any questions or technical issues, send us a message wither via email or on seesaw.


Try this activity with your homophone spelling words. Please ask permission from an adult at home before cutting up any magazines or newspapers.



Today you will be finding the area of different rectangles. Remember, the area of a shape means the space inside the shape. We write this as cm2 or in whatever unit of measure we are using. 


1. Have a look at the learning reminders. We work out the area by multiplying the width by the height. 

2. Choose your level of challenge. Mild has a square grid to help you if you need it. Complete the Bit Stuck section if you are finding it tricky. 

3. Have a go at the Investigation.

Foundation: Science


Throughout the year we have studied, Earth and Space, Forces, Materials and their properties, and Animals Including Humans. We know what we know today because scientists in each of these fields observed the world around them. Without them we might still think the Earth is flat, or we might not be able to make runners faster because of the shoes they wear.


We would like you to choose a scientist from any area of science that has interested you. It does not need to be a scientist linked to the topics we have studied.


Create a fact file to inform us about the person's background, what they were able to discover and how this has influenced our understanding today.
