GPS - apostrophe for possession

Following on from yesterday, please choose one activity from the differentiated sheets below.  


L.O: I can correctly recognise past and present tense

Have a look at the powerpoint explaining past and present tense.

Tense tells you when something is happening. Did it happen in the past? Is it happening now? Or is it going to happen?

We have a problem. Someone made a mistake and when writing the story they kept going to present tense by accident. Your challenge is to help them by re-writing the first page all in the PAST TENSE. Use your most beautiful handwriting. When you come to a verb you know is wrong, change it to the past tense. Eg John and his dog lives  should  be ‘John and his dog lived’...

Research task!

The story of the Pedlar Of Swaffham is well known in Norfolk and there really was a man named John Chapman. Little signs of the story are hidden all over Swaffham. There is a picture of John on the town cross sign to Swaffham and in the church there is a pew belonging to John Chapman and there is also a wooden carving of a man (John Chapman) holding his pack and a dog. Research these on the internet to see if you can find the pictures of what these look like and send them to us.

PSHE - Express Yourself

As part of Children's Mental Health Week, please choose another activity or two from the list given yesterday.  You may decide to make a Happy Box or create a piece of natural artwork? 


Today we are continuing to understand :

  •  how a balanced diet keeps us healthy
  • how the food groups are portioned to create a balanced diet
  • and how to  apply this knowledge when creating your own balanced meal

Look at the powerpoint Keeping Healthy which recaps the different food groups and how to create a healthy balanced meal. 

Task 1

Complete the Balanced Diet Sorting Worksheet. Look at the different foods and cut them out and glue them on to the correct section of the plate. Alternatively you could draw the different foods on the correct section of the plate.

Task 2

Create your own balanced, healthy meal. Draw around a dinner plate and use coloured pencils or any other materials such as tissue paper to design your meal.
