Get outside in the garden for a kick around, run around or a bit of fresh air.

  • Can you have someone at home to read you the dictation sentences (p54-55).
  • Let them test you on some of the words from this week.

11:10 – 12:00


  • Watch today’s video explaining our task for the next two days. We are going to be a reporter for the local newspaper, who is rather worried about the arrival of the Jolley Rogers.
  • Read the example (red part today, green part tomorrow).
  • Use the questions to help you think about today’s part. What did people see, what were the pirates doing, how are people feeling?
  • Use the template newspaper or write in your book. You need a headline and write the first part of the report.

12:00 – 1:00


Go outside for a bit of fresh air and play a game!

  • Use his rule to make up your own silly songs for Saucepan Man to sing.

1:30 – 3:00


  • We’re going to design a flag for the Jolley Roger’s ship today.
  • Watch the video which shows lots of pirates on their ships but look carefully at their flags. There are all sorts of different symbols on them in different colours too.
  • Look at the table of what the symbols all mean and there are some examples to inspire you.


End of the day

Enjoy spending some down time with your family.
