This week we are going to return to measurement - specifically looking at measuring length and height.


Today's lesson focus is comparing the length and height of objects.


1. Warm up your Maths brain with the BBC Supermovers - Length and Height with Mr Pumpernickel!


2. Work through the video below. Remember to pause the video when prompted and discuss your thinking with a grown up at home.


3. Complete the worksheet attached.


If you are unable to print the worksheet, you could find different objects at home to compare. Can you order 3 or 4 objects from shortest to tallest/longest? Who is the tallest in your family? Who is the shortest? Can you write 3 simple sentences to show your comparisons?

For example:

Daddy is the tallest.

Samuel is taller than Mummy.

Amie is the shortest.


This week we are continuing with our work on the text, 'Hansel and Gretel' by Anthony Browne. 


This week we are going to focus on writing our retelling of the story - today's lesson focuses on drafting a retelling of the story.


As with last week, you will need to watch the PowerPoint below (make sure you have the sound on).


Where you see this symbol on the PowerPoint, pause the video to consider and discuss the questions with a grown up at home.


Where you see this symbol on the PowerPoint, you need to pause the video and write down your ideas (either using the sheet provided or your own sheet of paper, if you are unable to print).


This term in History, we are going to be learning about the life and times of Queen Elizabeth I.


Today's lesson focus is learning about some of the significant British monarchs from history and where they are positioned on a timeline of British history.


Start by working through the first PowerPoint - you will need to read through the information with a grown up. Remember to pause the video to consider the questions posed.


Then, watch the CBBC Horrible Histories Monarchs song below.


After you have enjoyed the song, complete today's timeline task - as always, you can either print the sheets or you could make your own timeline.
