  • Spelling Activity

When is the ‘s’ sound spelt with ‘sc’?

Follow the video link below and complete the spelling activity found below the video.


Wider Curriculum Task 1 – Science 

What is a food chain?

A short clip below explains this for you.

Food Chain 

A food chain shows how plants and animals get their energy.

Producers and Consumers 

A food chain always starts with a producer. This is an organism that makes its own food. Most food chains start with a green plant, because plants can make their food by photosynthesis.

A living thing that eats other plants and animals is called a consumer.

Predators and prey

A predator is an animal that eats other animals. The animals that predators eat are called prey. Predators are found at the top of a food chain.

Task – Can you create your own food chain? You can do this as a poster or a power point, be creative and colourful.
We would love to see them once you are finished.

Wider Curriculum Task 2 – PSHE 

Working together as a team.

This activity has two parts.

Part 1 –

Part 2 –

Task – Think about where you have worked in a team either at home or at school. You can talk about this with your adults at home.

Wider Curriculum Task 3 – Art 

Australian artist Ken Done shows Kirsten O’Brien how he uses his simplified style of drawing and painting to capture the landmarks and places that most inspire his work. Ken Done composes a picture on site, using the landmark of Tower Bridge in London as the focus for his artwork. Using bold strokes and colours with very little detail, children work with the artist to compose their own pictures in his simplistic style.

Video –

Task –  Have a go at drawing a landmark which might be local, national or international, as a basis for your drawings.

You can find 10 famous ones on this link –

    Good morning. The Whiterose maths session is described on the blog as being week 5 but the link takes us to week 6. The work sheets and answers appear to be from previous weeks sessions also??

      Hello again,
      We are a week behind the White Rose plans, so you will need to scroll down and open the Week 5 tab on the White Rose website.
      I’ve checked the links for the worksheets on our blog post and they match the lessons on Week 5, so should all work.
      Let me know if you have any problems. Thanks,
      Miss Bailey
