Wednesday 20th January

Hello! Today we will hopefully see you online on our Zoom together! We are scheduled for 10am and 11am - so you can choose which one to join. Mrs Al-Noah and I can't wait to see you then. 

Let's start with phonics.

aw - claw


Using the story Up and Down by Oliver Jeffers, today I'd like you to look at the pictures and put them in order. You can print them out or draw/write your own pictures and sequence the story. 

Once you have put them in the correct order can you retell the story to a grown up? 


Please find the White Rose Maths video below - and my video introduction too.

To the children and grown ups who have emailed me - thank you and you are all doing so well with number bonds to 10, I hope you can use your knowledge for today's work. laugh If you are finding bonds to 10 tricky, please keep practising and get in touch if you need any help. 


The caterpillar task underneath the White Rose is for you to show me you know your bonds to 20 afterwards. 

Quick note: This episode of Numberblocks on CBBC is all about bonds to 10 so it may be a good watch if you need a 5 minute rest on a rainy day! 

Topic - Ready, Steady, Go!

Over 100 years ago it was a race to see who could invent the first machine that would carry people and make journeys shorter. It meant trips that would have taken months by train or boat, would now only take a few hours. People can now visit places further away.


As the Wright brothers lived in America you may think, why is this important to us as we live in Manchester, England? Well in 1919 two very important men called John Alcock and Arthur Brown became the first men to cross the sea from Canada to Ireland. They proved that aeroplanes could travel longer distances. This was very important and there were lots of celebrations at the time.

John Alcock was born in Manchester and both of them were living here in 1919. They were famous local people.

How has flying changed over the years?

The science museum in London has produced this video to explain how flying has changed.

The history of aviation in 11 incredible objects

Doug Millard guides you through mankind's earliest dreams of flight, through the Wright brothers and early adventurers to the jet engine.

Now Manchester is lucky enough to have it's own airport. There are now lots of different types of aeroplanes to take people to different parts of the world. Some aeroplanes even have showers, your own bed and seating areas, so you don’t have to stay in your seats when flying!


The Most Expensive First Class Airplane Seat

In this video we take a look at the top 5 most expensive and most luxurious first class plane seats money can buy.

WOW I think I would love to travel on these aeroplanes now! Do you think the Wright brothers could have guessed what aeroplanes would look like now, when they invented their Wright Flyer? I don’t think so.

So today’s job is to think about what aeroplanes might look like inside or outside in the future. Would they have a swimming pool inside them? Will aeroplanes be able to go to the moon? Will they still be the same shape? Will they have jet engines? I would like you to draw and label the inside or outside of an aeroplane of the future and email me telling me about it.

Physical activity

We love Andy from CBBC in our house! I hope you'll like his wild workout today too.

CBeebies | Andy's Wild Workouts | Up in the Air

Andy meets creatures that spend most of their lives up in the air.

Keep going everyone!! Don't forget there are new activities in the Homework folder on Education City! Your passwords are glued in your reading records. cheeky

I will hand you over to Mrs Al-Noah for tomorrow's learning but please do email me when you can and let me know how you are getting on. 

Lots of love,

Mrs O'Connell xx
