Today we have some question to answer about the text before your main task which is to think of different describing words for Santa's workshop in the story. If you want a challenge and make your work extra spicy could you write a sentence describing the workshop including a capital letter, full stop and finger spaces. 


Today, you will read and write words containing the 'ow' (blow the snow) sound. Make sure you are using your Fred talk and Fred fingers when reading and spelling words. You will need some paper and a pencil for the spellings. 



Today's maths lesson focuses on one more and one less of a number to 20. You will need a pencil and some paper to answer the questions on the power point. We know how amazing you all are at counting!


Watch this lesson all about the difference between vertebrates and invertabrates. Can you tell the difference between them?

Our trip to the Quayside.

Before half term we went on a fantastic trip to the Quayside to finish off our topic about our local area. We walked along the Quayside, taking pictures and sketches of the local landmarks. We even got to see the Millennium bridge move for some boats, it was very cool! After that, we went up the the viewing platform in the Baltic art gallery and then drew another field sketch of the Baltic.
