Week 3 21.01.21

Good morning KS1! Today we are going to be writing our final drafts of our stories. Upload a picture of your story to the Teams assignment so your teacher can respond to your writing. Don't forget to record the wind or the rain today to complete your weather diary tomorrow.


We are continuing to revisit the sounds we already know before moving onto Phase 5.  It is very important we do our phonics every day.   

Our lesson today will be continuing to practise reading words with more than one syllable. 


Today we are going to look the alternative sound for the 'ou' grapheme. Make sure you have a piece of paper and pencil to hand while you watch the Mr Thorne video. Write down each word, then add sound buttons to the words and practise reading them. What do you notice? 


Today you are going to be writing the final draft of your story. Remember to use your neatest handwriting, to underline your title and to start your story at the left of the page. Please post a picture of your final story on the assignment in Teams.

Today you will be following a recipe and weighing out ingredients to make biscuits. Make dinosaur footprints in your biscuits before baking. 


Don't forget to wash your hands and follow safe procedures for food safety and hygiene.


Dinosaur Biscuits


200g unsalted butter, softened

200g golden caster sugar

1 large egg

½ tsp vanilla extract

400g plain flour, plus extra for dusting



Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line a baking sheet with baking parchment. Put the butter in a bowl and beat it with electric beaters until soft and creamy. Beat in the sugar, then the egg and vanilla, and finally the flour to make a dough. If the dough feels a bit sticky, add a little bit more flour and knead it in.



Pull pieces off the dough and roll them out to about the thickness of two £1 coins on a floured surface. The easiest way to do this with small children is to roll the mixture out on a baking mat. Cut out shapes using a 9cm biscuit cutter, or a use the rim of a small glass and peel away the leftover dough around the edges. Press some clean toys gently into the biscuits, making sure you make enough of a mark without going all the way through. Re-roll off-cuts and repeat.



Transfer the whole mat or the individual biscuits to the baking sheet and bake for 8-10 mins or until the edges are just brown. Leave to cool for 5 mins, then serve. Will keep for three days in a biscuit tin.
