Friday 3rd July

Welcome to Friday everyone - try these activities.smiley


Draw an array to find the answer to this number sentence – 6 x 7 =

(Hint - draw 6 dots in a row and keep adding rows until you have 7 rows altogether- then count all the dots )

Have a look at some different pictograms and try to answer the questions about them.  There are lots of different ones to try.


Can you write a few descriptive sentences linked to your senses? Think of your favourite food and start by making a table like this one to help you think of some WOW words linked to each sense.

You could choose your favourite crisp flavour to describe! eg. The tasty, yummy salt and vinegar crisp crunched on my pink, wet tongue.  The dry, bitter salt and the sweet, tangy vinegar sizzled and popped on my taste buds.



You will have to ask if you can use some of your family’s crisp supply for this task!  

So you might not be able to do it today.

You will need a few crisps from a multi-bag of different crisp flavours for this taste test – can you use your senses to tell which flavour is which?


Put a few crisps in each dish – label them underneath  RS /PC/ S and V /C and O etc.-then mix the dishes up  - 

First try to tell which is which by looking – using sight

Then try using your sense of smell to identify them 

Finally use your sense of taste to taste them – were you right?

You don’t need to write anything down but you could take a photograph if you like.

Challenge someone else to do the taste test!


Alternatively – try playing this game



Also here is a game to play to check your understanding of senses.



Have fun!

Thursday 2nd July

Get set to try these tasks today.


Choose 5 objects from around your house – can you put them in order of mass? (weight)

Estimate first by holding each object to compare.  Put them in order then use your bathroom or kitchen scales to weigh each object and check your estimate.

Draw some of the objects and use these symbols to show how they compare- 

Choose 7 of your friends.  Think of the differences between all of you and choose 1 physical difference such as eye colour, hair colour or even shoe size – if you can find it out!   

1. Draw a tally chart to show this information

2. Can you also draw a block graph? Here is an example of one-


Log onto Education City to find out all about homophones and near homophones your activities are –

get out of hare – hare we go – homophone home – homophones

Do not worry about printing off any worksheet activities! They are only there for some extra practice. 

Please just write the answers into your workbook for each activity.


Start by drawing or painting a picture of yourself!   


Add labels to show the parts of the body that are related to senses – most of them are on our heads!

Label the sense as well.

eg. eyes – sight


Wednesday 1st July

Welcome to a brand new month ! Have a go at these activities todaysmiley


Can you put these events in order throughout the day?  What time of day do we do these things? Write them in your workbook and draw a clock next to each one showing the time you think they happen.

Wake up     teatime   bed time      eat breakfast    wash face     bath time     play in the garden      brush teeth   

help with shopping   TV time

Watch this clip to recap on how to draw a pictogram or pictograph.

 Draw your own pictogram to represent the treasures you found in the garden yesterday. Remember to give your pictogram a title!


Look at an example of a flow chart –  

How does it differ to a cyclical diagram? ( It is a straight line – not a circle that keeps repeating itself)

Look at this film of how milk is produced   

Can you put this information into a simple flow chart?

Here is one to look at in case you get stuck ! 



You will have to wait until you are able to get hold of some seeds to have a go at this !

So you might not be able to do it today.


Next time you visit a garden centre you could maybe ask if your grown up could buy some inexpensive seeds like nasturtiums for your science investigation.


Plant a few seeds in 4 plastic cups – label each one according to the prediction sheet you did last week – here it is again –

Over the next few weeks observe what happens and see if your predictions were right.

Remember –one cup to go in the fridge, one cup in a dark cupboard and one must not be watered!


Alternatively – have a go with this game – you have to keep the conditions just right so that the plant can grow and flower.

Tuesday 30th June

Try these tasks today.


Take photographs or draw pictures of yourself doing different things at different o’clock times

eg. Breakfast at 7 o’clock / riding your bike at 1 o’clock – try to get a clock in your photo!

Go outside to find treasures in your garden.  In 2 minutes what can you find? eg. Flowers, pebbles, twigs. Look at what you have found - how could we record this information? In your workbook draw a tally chart -remember how to do it? - like this –

Record the number of different things you found.


Watch this clip to find out about Life cycles.

Scroll down to sort the life cycles and take the quiz at the end.


Create your own life cycle as a cyclical diagram ( it goes round in a circle)  in your workbook – you could choose butterfly, frog, flower

Remember to make it large enough to be clear – draw and label carefully and add arrows to show the sequence of events.


Have a look at some pictures of you as a baby and a toddler – how have you changed ?

Ask a grown up if you can look at some pictures of them as a baby, toddler, teenager and young adult.

How have they changed ? Talk to your grownup about these changes.


Look at this picture of a baby. 

How does a baby become an adult?  What changes take place?

What can an adult do that a baby can’t do?

If you can print off the sheet – try to sequence these pictures in order to show how the baby grows.

You only need to print one of the pages – there are 2 to choose from.

Or you could draw pictures and write some sentences about each stage of development.  ,


Monday 29th June

Good morning!smiley Are you ready for some more great activities? Don't forget - we love to see your photos!


Can you complete this?    ______ minutes in an hour

                                  --------------- hours in a day

                                  ---------------- days in a week

                                  ------------------ weeks in a year

Copy it into your workbook.

Log onto Education city for your data handling activities  – block graph games – summer fair – carnival capers

Do not worry about printing off any worksheet activities! They are only there for some extra practice. 

Please just write the answers into your workbook for each activity.


Do you know your 5 senses?  Can you name them? 

Write them in your workbook.   film clip to watch about our senses

Choose 6-8 objects from around your house – which senses do you use to find out about them?

Draw each object and label it – underneath write a caption describing how your different senses are used

e.g. The hairbrush feels spiky or  I can smell the chocolate bar. 


Watch the clip on Bitesize about things that are dead, alive or have never lived


Can you think of 3 objects that would fit into each category – (remember –dead means it has lived at some time so a car is not dead)

If you can print it off – there is an activity to sort pictures under the three headings- dead, alive and never lived.

If you are not able to print it - just write the three headings in your book and then draw the pictures in the correct place.




Remember to keep sending us your wonderful photos.yes
