English - I can write for different purposes, including real events.

  • Florence Nightingale

Listen to Florence Nightingale’s story by visiting:

You could:

  • Write the story of Florence Nightingale.

  • Write a diary entry as Florence describing a day she would have experienced.

  • Sequence events using time words.

  • Draw Florence and surround with adjectives to describe her.

  • How does nursing then compare to nursing now?

  • Why are nurses so important?  Could you create a poster or write a letter of thanks?

Resources and further activities can be found on Twinkl or BBC


Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar -  I can identify verbs and adverbs.

  • Can you remember what verbs and adverbs are?

‘A verb is the doing or being word in a sentence.’ ‘An adverb tells you how something is, or how it is done.’    

Don’t forget you can have more than one verb in a sentence. Example:  My dog barked loudly at the cheeky cat who crept silently up to the bird table, where a robin pecked busily at some bird food. The verbs are: barked, crept and pecked; the adverbs are loudly, silently and busily.

Dont forget not all adverbs end with ‘-ly’. Example:   Ben runs fast to catch his friend. He is quick

Also adverbs tell you more about an adjective. Example: That is a very pretty flower. 


       ...and this Twinkl powerpoint gives helpful examples of adverbs: 


Maths - I can tell the time including o’clock, quarter past and half past.

  • Some time games:

  • There are some time sheets for you to complete in your Home Learning Packs, which can be collected from school this week. 

  • Also use these games to practice your addition and subtraction, as these are very important skills.


Reading -  I can answer questions about a text.

Do you know the story of The Boy who cried Wolf?  It is a story about trust, and why it is important for people to be able to trust each other.   Read a version of the story in the link below and answer the questions that come after the text. The answers are at the end.

Topic - I can explain that plants need water, light and a suitable temperature to grow well.

  • Use the sheet to explain what plants need to grow well. If you have seeds could you experiment? Plant one seed in the dark, another in a cold / hot place etc. Which was the most successful?

RE - I can talk about ‘Trust’ 

  • Our new theme in RE for the first half of the Summer Term is ‘Leaders and Teachers’.

  • Our RE question is:  ‘Why Do Christians Trust Jesus and Follow Him?’ so we start by talking about what Trust means to us.  Can you talk about this with someone in your family? 

  • There are lots of stories which show people trusting (or not!) each other. Have a read of ‘The Boy who cried Wolf’ which is our suggested Reading activity this week. 

  • Who do you trust?  Draw a picture or write a list. Think of a reason for each person. Examples: I trust my mum because she looks after me.   I trust my brother because he is kind to me. I trust my dog because he comes back when I call his name.   

  • Play a ‘Trust Game’.  If we were in class, we would get you playing Simon Says or Follow The Leader, and then ask you how it feels to trust your partner. 

PSHE - To understand about healthy sleeping habits.

  • Even though our routines are different at the moment, it is still important to get enough sleep. Children should get at least 10 hours a night. 

  • Look for the PSHE Sleep resources in the Home Learning pack we prepared for this week. Included are a list of some benefits of good sleep habits, notes about things that might prevent you sleeping well, and suggestions for ways to help you get better sleep. 

  • For example, it is not a good idea to do vigorous exercise just before bed time - this is more likely to keep you awake, than make you tired and ready for sleep. However, good exercise during the morning or afternoon helps you sleep better at night. 

  • If you like, keep a sleep diary: What time do you go to bed? When do you wake up? How many hours a night do you sleep?   This links with our time work in maths.


Art - I can use a range of materials to design and make a collage or sculpture.

  • Can you create some springtime nature art? You might be able to collect things like stones, pine cones, leaves, daisies and twigs during your daily exercise or in your back garden. 

  • Dont forget to email us a picture!



  • Can you learn a new sporting skill whilst you are at home like skipping, doing a forward roll, throwing a frisbee or hula hooping? 

  • Maybe you could set yourself a new sports challenge each day e.g. throw and catch a ball ten times, skip 30 times without stopping or bounce a ball on a tennis racket 10 times. 


Computing - I can learn how to type.  

  • Typing quickly and accurately is a useful skill. As last week, there are some fun games and typing lessons on this website that you might like to try. You will need to use a laptop or computer for these though. If you tried one game then try a different one.

  • Maybe you can use your new skills to type a letter or an email (with an adults help and permission) to a friend, family member or teacher.
