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


Today's focus is to understand how to correctly form one-armed robot letters and use them when writing labels and descriptive sentences.


One-armed robot letters are: b, h, k, m, n, pandr.

They always start by going straight down, up and over. Most of these letters have a curve, except for the letter k.


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


Activity 1: Finding one-armed robot letters

Take a piece of paper and draw seven big boxes.

  • At the top of each box, write a different one-armed robot letter.
  • Go on a hunt around your house or garden and see how many items you can spot that contain each letter.
  • Write each item down in the boxes as you go.
  • Once you've finished, try and think of some words that contain more than one one-armed robot letter and write them down. See if you can write five. Here are two examples to get you started: nature and milk


Activity 2: Making a poster

Imagine you're making a poster for a missing monster.

  • First decide what your monster looks like.
  • Then draw a picture of your monster.
  • Add labels to the different parts of the monster to describe its features.
  • Try and include at least six labels on your monster and see if you can use multiple describing words together.

Here are some examples:

Seven long, pointy fingers.
Thick, greasy, blue hair.

Once you've finished, read through your labels and circle or highlight all the one-armed robot letters.


Activity 3: Writing sentences about the monster

Use your poster from activity two to write a paragraph describing your monster. You have already labelled your drawing so you can use these labels to create sentences. Try to create five sentence all together.

  • Make sure you use capital letters and full stops in your writing.
  • Be sure to include adjectives (describing words).
  • You could also describe how your monster behaves; what it eats, what it drinks or what it likes to do.


Today's focus is learning the 2 times table by counting in twos and looking at arrays and number patterns and it is from BBC Bitesize on


Start by watching the video and listen to the song all about the 2 times tables and work through some of the examples.


Activity 1

Draw an array for each multiplication fact in the 2 times table.

  • What do you notice about the arrays you have drawn?

  • How are they the same? How are they different?

Practise counting up and down in twos from 0 to 24.


Activity 2

Have a go at the 2x table interactive activity and see if you can get all the questions right.


Activity 3: Karate Cats

Play the multiplication and division level of Karate Cats Maths - can you collect a cool new costume for your cats?


Don't forget you can practise your times tables on Times Table Rockstars!


Wider curriculum (Science)


Today's lesson is from BBC Bitesize and you will learn all about the basic forces of push, pull and twist.


Watch through the different videos explaining the different forces.


Activity 1: Match up the forces

Drag and drop to match the images to the type of forces they are showing on the interactive game.


Activity 2: Push, pull or twist?

Go round your home and see if you can find any examples where you need to push, pull or twist something.
