Tuesday 9th February

Good morning!

Start this morning by having a go at the next morning challenge:


Now mark your arithmetic from yesterday. 


Please mark yesterday's work.

We have completed all the new learning for our unit on money, so this week we will spend our maths lessons practicing all the skills we have learnt in order to reinforce what you have learnt.


To begin with, please go through this Powerpoint. This activity will give you chance to practice adding up different amounts. Remember to start with the biggest values. 

Now have a go at this activity. You need to check that the right change has been given.

Finally, you can play this change game.


As always start today's lesson by completing the next sheet for either your word detectives or spelling work. 

Today you will be writing the last two, shorter sections of Stone Soup.

Before you start have a look at the WALT to remind yourselves what you will be including in your writing, then complete the recap task.

Below is a copy of the text we wrote in the classroom. Using the washing line guidance and your notes and brilliant ideas, change the underlined words. As before the highlighted parts are for those of you that need the challenge. These can be removed and the story will still make sense.

Start this afternoon off by reading for 10 minutes then spend 10 minutes on TTRS.


Design and Technology

Today is the day, that you will be making the soup that you designed last week. For this you need to make sure you have all the ingredients and your design brief.

Begin the lesson by looking at the WALT and having a go at the recap task. Then watch the video below and think about how to stay safe in the kitchen.

Instructions (Rough guide)

1. Wash you hands thoroughly.

2. Wash and prepare all your vegetables (Only do this with your adult). Depending on your vegetables, this might be peeling, slicing, chopping, dicing. The smaller you cut them the quicker it will cook.

At this stage you will need to think about how much of each vegetable to use. Do you want more of one vegetable then another? How many people are you making this for? Keep a note of how much of each you used e.g 1 potato, 1/4 cabbage.

3. Cook the vegetables with any required seasoning.

4. Place all the cooked vegetables together and add any water, herbs or seasoning required.

5. Blend. (optional depending on tools available to you and the texture you require)


Your instuctions might be a little different to this depending on what you have chosen. Listen to your adult helper for guidance.

It would be great if you can take some photos of you making the soup because you could use these when we write out the recipe as a set of instructions.
Once you've made your soup you will need to evaluate it. Below is the activity to help you do this. You might want to jot down some notes and then fill this in on Thursday afternoon, when we will allow more time for this.

Alternative activity

Parents: The key skill the children will learn from the above lesson is preparing food and learning how to use knives and peelers safely. If at all possible it would be great if the children could help in the kitchen and experience this. Perhaps they could help prepare a fruit salad or help make lunch.


Below is an activity which you should start this afternoon and will be given chance to complete on Thurdsay afternoon.

Your task is to design a label for your soup which you designed last Thursday. Below is a photograph of a soup label for a closer look. Perhaps look at any tinned food in your food cupboards.

You will see we have attached a few different worksheets for you to chose from, some which offer a little more support than others.
