Good morning Platypuses,

It has been so great to hear from some of you and your families through the blog. Do keep commenting and sharing some of your learning as we go along. It is really important for us to all feel connected as much as possible – plus I just love to hear how you are all doing!

English Challenge:

In phonics we have been focusing on the i-e split digraph sound as in hike or mine

Remember that you can login to phonics play for free now to practise your phonics.

In your blue book see if you can copy and complete these sentences by adding words that have the i-e split digraph.

Also if you like try to write down or draw what happens at the end of your version of the “Giraffes can’t dance” story.

Here is my ending…

Matty Mouse was sad. He did not think he could be strong like the other animals. But then he heard a clucking sound. It was the hen and she had been watching him. She told him that we are all strong if we work together. Matty mouse thought for a moment and then went back to the other animals. They watched as Matty went over to a big bag of grain. Then he squeaked as loud as he could. All of a sudden hundreds of mice came running out of the barn. Together they lifted the bag of grain right off the ground. The other animals were amazed!

Maths Challenge:

Yesterday we looked at completing part whole diagrams using our knowledge of the groups of tens and the ones in 2 digit numbers.

Today I want you to try and write 2 addition and 2 subtraction equations for a part whole model like the example below..

Write your addition and subtraction equations for these part whole models. (Some of them you will have to complete first!)

E-Safety Challenge:

As we are all stuck at home at the moment adults and children are likely to be spending a little more time online.

The internet can be a great place for learning and entertainment but as we have often discussed in class it is very important to stay safe when you are online.

Please do the following e-safety activity and try to comment on the blog with one thing you must do or never do to stay safe online…http://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/jessie-and-friends-videos/

Good Luck Platypus Class!

  1. Jose what a fantastic story. I can see you have put a lot of effort into this and thought about all the detail; the characters, the setting and the meaning of the story. Thank you so much for sharing and keep up the good work!


  2. Hello all, I would like to share with you my own story of friendship and team work.
    The panda bear would climb a tree.
    Once upon a time there was a panda his name was Pedro. he was good at eating bamboo and helping but when he tried climbing trees he would fall dow. oh i forget to tell you where he lived he was living in a forest not far from our school.
    it was the tome of the year for the climbing competition so the panda bear decided to enter into the competition.
    The day of the competition came the panda was so nervous. the competitors were a monkey a squirrel and a sloth.
    The monkey was fast and could swing between the branches of the trees.
    The squirrel was fast and could jump from tree to tree.
    The sloth was slow but an effective climber.
    The panda bear turn came and the other animals laughed. Suddenly other animals that were not good climbers appeared whit the tools to make a great ladder so the panda conquered the top of the tree and having a party with his friends.

  3. Mammy forgot to swap tablets, but I did the challenge on mine 4 times and all were correct despite sumdog didn’t accept my answers..


  4. Sorry to hear that James. I have checked my end and it is showing that you have not competed… Try the other tablet and if that doesn’t work see if an adult can test you then let me know your score.


  5. Hello,
    I am having trouble to submit my spelling test. Done it 4 times now and every time it says 0 out of 10 answered. I will attempt one more time on a different tablet. maybe sumdog does not like an android.
