Good morning Chestnut Class!

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.

Grammar – We will be doing an additional activity on plural possessive apostrophes.  It might be a good idea to re-watch the powerpoint I attached on Tuesday.  I have attached a sheet on applying and reasoning in relation to possessive plural apostrophes.

Whole class reader – Please mark yesterday’s comprehension questions.  I have attached a guide to marking them.

English – Goblinology booklet.  Now that you have planned your report using the template on page 14, I would like you to spend some time planning how you will write and present it.  We will be writing the reports next week, so today please use your time to read the example report on page 16, written by a boy of your age in another school.  This might give you some inspiration and you may want to use some of his ideas!

On page 15 there are examples of how you might present your work to make it visually appealing.The first example is the work of professional author and you can research more of her work to get ideas.The second example is by a pupil in a school in Northamptonshire.You can see how he has really tried hard to make his work interesting to look at!

Live story time session!  Please note that the new time for this session is 11am.  I am really looking forward to being able see as many of you as possible for this.  Fingers firmly crossed that technology works with us!!!

Maths fluency – Have a session on the game hit the button.  Challenge yourself on the times tables section.  Write down your scores and see if you can beat them!

Hit the Button - Quick fire maths practice for 5-11 year olds (

ICT – I have set 3 tasks on Purple Mash.  They will be in your 2-Do list.  They focus on using home row keys in typing.



Have a lovely day,

Mrs Barter
