Your learning for Thursday 7th January 2021


Good morning Chestnut Class!

Your work for the day is as follows:

Reading for 30 minutes.  You can do this in shorter chunks if you wish.  Please note down what you have read in your yellow reading record.

Spelling – There is a sheet attached to help you practise the ‘gu’ words from Tuesday, plus any others you found. 

Whole class reading – I have attached some answers to the questions you completed yesterday.  They are a guide to help you mark your work and your answers may not be exactly the same!

English – Goblinology booklet.  Please can you carry out the work relating to Grass Goblins.  This begins half way down page 6 and continues onto page 7.  The aim is for you to link the 4 facts by writing them in a more interesting way and creating a paragraph.  There is a bank of sentence starters, generalised words and joining words to help you write your paragraph.

Maths – please watch the White Rose teaching video on


This is an introduction to kilometres.You can then complete the corresponding sheet and afterwards mark it using the attached answer sheet.
