Reading Skills

Read the following text a few times to an adult then answer the questions that follow it.

Now let’s have a brain break and work on our times tables!


LI To use technical vocabulary

The Phoenix Code by Helen Moss

Today we’re listening to chapter 18 of the Phoenix code told by Mrs Irvine

Following on from yesterdays task, today you need to edit, improve and finalise your fact sheet.  Think about capital letters, full stops and paragraphs.  If you are doing it on Word, it very helpfully tells you if it thinks you have done something wrong – don’t ignore it!  A red squiggle underneath a word means it is possible spelled incorrectly and a blue one means there may be a grammar mistake.  Use the tools you have.  If you are doing it on paper, you can attach a picture to the assignment on Teams to complete it.  Don’t forget to use some of the key features of a non-fiction text: heading, drawing/illustration, labels, subheading, facts, bullet points, questions and answers.

Wider Curriculum: Science

LI To understand the 5 classifications of vertebrates.


Following on from our live lesson yesterday (watch the playback here

 if you missed it)  can you create a flow diagram to help classify vertebrates?  This is a set of yes or no questions that will arrive at the correct type of vertebrate at the end. 

Here is an example of a flow diagram for insects to give you an idea how it works.


What do you think might be the first question?  Would it be about whether their blood is warm or maybe do they lay eggs?

Once you have done it, think of an animal and follow your chart – does it work?


Nearly the end of day. Now it’s time for a little quiet, prayer and reflection with our Class worship. Click the candle.


Time for a story to finish our day. Click the image and choose one to read.


Congratulations and well done on getting to the end of the week! We hope you have had an amazing week, well done everyone!

Don’t forget to send your work to the class e-mail address where your teacher will be able to put it on the hub page!
