Over the next three weeks The Museum of London will be live streaming a programme all about the Great Fire of London. You can find the link on www.museumoflondon.org.uk/schools/session-detail?id=1058. Each week you’ll take an interactive tour through part of our Fire! Fire! exhibition – an exciting display that marked the event's 350th anniversary – learning key facts and seeing a mix of real and replica objects that tell the story of the blaze. It's on for the next 3 Mondays 2:00- 2:30. Let me know if you watch and enjoy it!
Today's focus is to be able to identify action words and use them in sentences that use different tenses. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short videos.
Activity 1: Writing homophone action words
Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings. There are lots of them! To practise them, click on the interactive box and play Small Town Superheroes. Go to the 'Steve' section and play the 'Homophones' mini game.
Once you've practised by playing the game, try the following:
Here are some words to get you started: write, buy, sun, be, to.
Activity 2: Writing some action words
See if you can write an alphabet of action words.
Here are some to start you off:
A - acted - acting - will act
B - bounced - bouncing - will bounce
C - crawled - crawling - will crawl
D - danced - dancing - will dance
Once you've finished, you could draw some illustrations next to some of your words.
Activity 3: let's describe dancing

Did you notice how the grasshoppers, bees, spiders, centipedes and other minibeasts were all dancing?
Think about some of the words that were used to describe how they danced.
Here are two examples to start you off:
Today's focus is learning how to estimate and measure volume and capacity in litres. Start by reading through the 'Learn' section and watch the short video.
Litres activity cards
This worksheet from Twinkl will help you practise measuring in litres. See if you can complete all the questions.
Wider curriculum (Music)
In this lesson play an interactive game to learn about layering music, making a beat and creating your own song.
In this game explore the different elements that make up a song, play or clap along with the music and make then listen back to your own version of songs.
Listen to the song I am a Robot in the game above. Sing the lyrics twice:
I am a robot
I go beep, beep, beep, bop
Then copy the beat using body percussion. For example:
If you want you can sing the lyrics again and then try a different type of body percussion.
