Monday 25.1.21  

We will be doing Guided Reading on Thursday. We have attached the text  (The Bear Who Came to Babysit) today, so that your child reads it, or so that you can read it with your child, before the session.   


We will deliver  a short phonics lesson, in the live lesson.   

If you missed the live lesson, the PowerPoint video is here:  

After the live lesson you can play any game on Phonics Play related to the sound:  er (A better letter). Username: Thrapston Password: Thrapston  


In English this week, we are going to look at lots of SPAG. Today is sentence types, particularly exclamations.  

LO: To be able to recognise and use different sentence types. 

Say statements and exclamations. (yellow) 

Identify if it as statement or an exclamation. (blue) 

Choose whether to use a full stop or an exclamation mark. (green) 

Write exclamation sentences starting with ‘what’ or ‘how’. (white) 

If your child is doing yellow or blue then they should do the one star sheet (page 1) and say if a sentence is a statement or an exclamation. If your child is doing green, then they should do the two star sheet (page 2) and add in an exclamation mark or a full stop where appropriate. If your child is doing white, then they should write their own exclamation sentences starting with ‘what’ or ‘how’.

The children have already been learning multiplication facts by heart for our weekly tests in school. However, over this week we will be demonstrating the different ways that multiplication can be represented and different methods for calculating multiplication statements and some problem solving. 

On Monday, we will be calculating multiplication statements by grouping the quantities and counting the answer in 1s at first and then using our knowledge of counting in 2s, 5s and 10s etc to help us count more quickly. The differentiated activities are included at the end of the blog. 

If you are completing yellow level the multiplications can be solved using practical apparatus (lego, toys etc). 

If you are completing blue and green level, please draw out the groups to solve the question. If you know the answer from your time tables knowledge then please prove the statement is true by drawing the groups out to demonstrate your understanding. 

White level –challenge yourself with unknown (by you) multiplication Eg 15 x 4 =   

24 x 2= and sort by the answers to show if they are odd or even. 

If you missed the live lesson, the narrated PowerPoint can be found here:  

L.O. To be able to calculate mathematical statements within the multiplication tables by grouping. 

Use apparatus to calculate x10 statements. (Yellow) 

Use apparatus or draw groups to calculate x2, 5 and 10 statements. (Blue) 

Draw groups to calculate x2, 5, 10 and 3 statements. (Green) 

Write multiplication statements and sort to say if odd or even. (White) 


This week we will continue learning about our local area, we will be looking at features of our local area and what we have in it. We will also be finding out whether these features are ‘physical’ or ‘man-made’ features.  

Here is the link to the recorded PowerPoint for this lesson:  

LO: To be able to identify features of your local surroundings.   

Draw a picture of 3 features of your local area. (blue)

List features of their local area. (green)

Write about features of your local area and if they are physical or man-made. (white)

Morning PowerPoint  

A quick activity, that would usually be on the board in the morning, to kick-start the day.   

10 Minute Maths 

There are a few quick maths questions to recap or introduce new topics. We usually do this three times a week to kick-start the afternoon.
