08:45 - 09:00 - Word of the Day

To complete your Week 3 Spelling Challenge, ask an adult or a sibling to read out your Week 3 spelling words to you. Then spend this week practising your Week 4 Spellings. All spellings can be found in Learning Resources.


09:00 - 09:30 - Reading 

Plastic Pollution 

Read the text all about plastic pollution! Here, you will learn about how plastic effects the environment and what you can do to help reduce plastic consumption. Answer the questions on the sheet. It might be helpful to underline key words in the questions to remind you of what to look for. 


09:30 - 09:50 -SPaG

We are going to focus on WORD FAMILIES for three lessons. Word families are groups of words that share the same root word. A root word is a basic word with no prefix (in front of the root word) or suffix (after the root word). When we add prefixes or suffixes, we change the meaning and word class of the word.  Work through the Word Families – Introduction powerpoint. Can you think of any of your own word families?

Think of all the different ways people communicate with each other now. List them. There are so many, aren’t there? When Ella was a young girl, it was letter writing, especially to friends, that was incredibly popular. This week, we are focusing on letter structure (how the text is organised) and letter features. Read the WAGOLLs and then re-order the letter.

Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


Children and young people aged between 5 – 18 years should be aiming for an average of 60 minutes of exercise every day. Taking part in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week will develop movement skills, muscles and bones! Reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity.

This week, we are going to be looking at The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC). This is an international agreement between different governments which protect children by meeting their basic needs and helping them to reach their full potential. Take a look at this video to learn more about your rights and then click on the next link which has a list of all the rights. 

What are child rights? - YouTube 


In the learning resources, you will find a sheet called, ‘PSHE - I Have The Right Discussion Cards’. Have a look through these specific children’s rights. Think about which rights are the most important for you. Your task is to choose your top 5 rights and write them into your book with an explanation for each right to show why that right is important for you. Don’t forget to use your conjunctions to explain. 


An example of an explanation... 

1) The most important right for me is, ‘To be loved and respected’ because if people show kindness and care towards me, it will help me to feel more positive about myself and confident. I also believe that if I am loved from a young age, it will teach me to spread kindness to others which will help me when I grow up to become an adult.
