Thursday 4th March

Hello everybody... it's Thursday! Let's find out what learning we are doing today.


Here is another story about Handa and her friend Akeyo.

Handa's Noisy Night

For your writing task today, I would like you to write about a time when you have had a sleepover. Whose house was it at? What did you take with you? Did you have any special treats? How did you feel?

If you have never had a sleepover or just can’t remember because it was such a long time ago! then you could write about whose home you would like to have a sleepover at and what you might do together (you can use your imagination and even chose a character from your favourite book…hmm… what would it be like to have a sleepover at the three bears house? Whose bed would you sleep in? I wonder, would you have to eat porridge for breakfast?). I would love to see this work today 😊


Let’s start our lesson with our warm-up to recognise our sounds and tricky words. If you already know all your sounds and tricky words, you can skip this bit.

Today we are learning another way to pronounce a grapheme.

Word of the day

For the last two weeks we have been practising reading and spelling a word of the day. Today I thought we could check and see how many words you can read and write from memory.

Let’s practise counting in our 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.

Today we are going to carry on with measuring length. We are going to be using different objects to find the length of something. In the first video it asks you to find objects for measuring with. This needs to be something the same size such as paper clips, pasta shapes, raisins, Lego pieces. You can then use these to measure how long a spoon, knife or fork is. Watch the video to find out more.

In the story of Handa’s Noisy Night she heard lots of different sounds the nocturnal animals were making. I wonder what other nocturnal animals might come out at night in Kenya. Watch this video and find out!

Creatures of the Mara night

Can you remember what nocturnal means? (awake at night) and diurnal? (awake during the day). We have learnt about this before when we did our work on ‘This is the Bear’. Let’s have a quick recap about what it means.

There is a sorting activity to do today. You can always list the names of the animals rather than printing out the activity and add some of your own to the list if you want.

Keeping active

Why not try the Mr Pumpernickel length and height dance! 

Let’s get dancing with Mrs Murphy!
