Don't forget to let me know your challenges for this week. smiley

So far we have Filip and his mum who are trying to complete 101 squats before the end of the week. Good luck!


Today's focus is writing and asking questions. There are 3 activities available, you can choose as much or as little to complete. Make sure you watch the video about The Magic Faraway Tree so that you know the story for lessons later in the week. Extra resources and videos for each activity can be found on:


BBC English Tuesday 21.4.20


Activity 1 The Magic Faraway Tree

Later  in the lesson we will watch a clip about 'The Magic Faraway Tree.' In the story there are four children called Joe, Beth, Franny and Rick. They love going to the Magic Faraway Tree because they always have so much fun there.


Write a questions for each of the four children asking them something about the tree. You can do this verbally or you can write them down.


  • Use words like what, did, does, have and where to start your questions
  • Don't forget questions marks.


Activity 2: Writing a diary

Firstly, you will need to watch the video using the blue link above. Once you have done that, think about the following.

What can you remember about The Magic Faraway Tree? Imagine you have been on an adventure there and you want to write a diary entry about it.


You will need to include:

  • Dear Diary
  • a description of the tree
  • who you met
  • what questions you asked whilst you were there
  • Information about what you did and how you felt
  • a closing like 'Got to go now' or 'time for me to go'


Activity 3: Let's draw some of the characters

In the story 'The Magic Faraway Tree' we heard about the characters such as Dame Washalot, Silky the Fairy, Moonface and The Saucepan Man.


Using their names, draw what you think they would each look like. Once you've draw them, next to each character, write one questions you wish you could ask them.



In your books partition these numbers - 23, 54, 48, 82. Partition them into 10s and 1s first. Then see if you can find different ways to partition them in different combinations of 10s and 1s.

Wider Curriculum (History)


Over the next few weeks we will be looking at answering the question:


How would my life have been different if I had been born in the 1930s?


To start off I would like you to find out what life was life in the 1930s for all of the family. 

  • What jobs did people do? 
  • What was school like for children?
  • What games did they play? 
  • What were houses like?


Record the information you find out in your workbook.

Here are some websites that could be useful to find some information:

BBC - Life at home in the 1930s.

BBC - Birthdays in the 1930s
