This week we will be following the BBC Bitesize daily lessons on


Today's focus is forming letters accurately when writing about what 'I' can see in the desert.

There are 3 activities, you can choose to do as much or as little as you would like.


Activity 1: Let's create some zig zag letters

Take a piece of paper and split it into four sections. You can either draw these sections or you can fold the paper in to quarters.

In each section draw each zig zag letter. Try and fill the section as much as possible.

Once you're happy with each letter, you can decorate around the letter.


Activity 2: Using zig zag letters in sentences

How many words can you think of that use zig zag letters?

Create a list of words that contain each of the zig zag letters.

Here are some examples to start you off:

  • vet
  • win
  • mix
  • zip

Once you've listed as many words as you can, write a short sentence using each word. For example: I had to take my dog to the vet.


Activity 3: Let's write some more sentences

What do you know about the desert? Watch the short video on the website.


Imagine you have been to the desert. Write four sentences describing what you saw, what it was like or what happened whilst your were there.

Try and include two or three zig zag letters in each sentence.

Here is an example for you: My friend Max spotted a lizard on the very hot sand.

Once you've created four sentences, circle all the zig zag letters.

Today's learning is taken from BBC Bitesize.


There are lots and lots of different animals all over the world.

Each animal has been classified by scientists so it belongs to a group.

Discover some facts about each group by watching the clips on the BBC bitesize website.


Activity 1: Quiz time

Have a go at the quiz all about mammals. Can you remember what makes a mammal different from other groups of animals?


Activity 2: Sort it
