  3. Think about the ways 10 and 20 can be divided up
  4. Work systematically – that is think about working to a system or method

LO: To write a humorous story

Today you're writing a funny story about getting into trouble! This could be something that actually happened to you, or you can use your imagination and make up a story smiley


Look at the lesson below which takes you through what you need to think about, and the success criteria. Use the structure of the story planning document to think about what you need to include - make sure you do this stage beforehand, as it will help you to think about all the different parts of your story. 



Lesson 5 for those of you doing music this week rather than Art. Also you can join the Rock Steady live lesson at 2:00-2:30pm. Band Leader Paul will cover:

  • Music From Around the World: Paul will be taking KS2's on a journey around the globe to discover traditional music from various countries. This week we're learning about Folk Music.
  • Musical Word of the Week: Paul will talk about acoustic instruments, how they make their sound and compare them to electric instruments.
  • Acoustic or Electric: Putting them to the test can the children tell the difference between these two types of instruments?
  • I Will Wait: Paul performs a song by folk rock superstars 'Mumford & Sons' so the children can hear the influence Folk has had on modern music!
