Topic- For topic today, we would like you to think about other UK landmarks. Take a look at the video below and see if you can find a UK Landmark that is not in London. (Eg. Stonehenge, Angel of the North etc.)
Can you draw a picture of your chosen landmark and label it?


Maths- You have worked really hard on addition this week. Today we would like you to try writing your own number sentences. I have attached some numbers on the document below. Can you add the two numbers together to find the answer and then write out the full number sentence, remembering to include your + and = signs?
The first one would be ‘7 + 3 = 10’
For an extra challenge, can you make up some number sentences of your own?

Guided Reading- Click the link below to read the story ‘Katie in Scotland’ written by the same author who wrote ‘Katie in London’. Once you have finished the story, can you discuss which story you preferred and why? How is Scotland different to London?

Phonics- For phonics today, we are going to recap our learning from this week. Please complete the activities below.

Recap- play flashcards on phonics play, recapping all of our phase 2 sounds and our new sounds ‘j’ and ‘v’ from phase 3.

Practise- On phonics play, click on ‘Buried Treasure’ and select ‘phase 3’. Choose either ‘j’ or ‘v’ words. Read each word and if it is real- put it in the treasure chest, if it is fake- put it in the bin.

Apply- Click on the document below and read all of the ‘j’ and ‘v’ words. Can you draw a line to match each word to the correct picture?
