The two recordings are towards the bottom of the page, you'll see them by scrolling down. Be sure to watch them in the right order!

Use the HOT Seating activity to help you to write a character description. Using the information from the Hot-Seating activity, you could start like this: Evil Pea is a mischievous, emerald -green coloured troublemaker! He thinks that he is the King of everything and wants to take over the world and capture and trap different fruits and vegetables so that he can rule over everyone!


Please write about 10-14 lines if you can. Your title can be-'Evil Pea Character Description'. Once you have finished the writing, please illustrate it too with a picture of Evil Pea. You could even label the different parts of him that you described and add extra information in brackets, like we have done before in English. For example, if you labelled his mask, in brackets, you may write (to disguise his menacing eyes).

11.30-12.00-Spelling Practise

Please practise spelling the words which you have been given this week. Remember to use the spelling strategies which I have taught you-segment to spell! Sound out the words and listen to the sounds you can hear, then think about which grapheme you need to write, to represent those sounds.

1:00-1:30- Pre-recorded non-core

Whole Class Guided Reading with Mrs Pelosi. It is really important that we keep this up, as it helps us to understand what we are reading and it teaches us the skills of reading.

The children are used to this as it's the same format that we follow in school. I have added a voice over on each slide, to help you to understand a bit more about how it works. So please click on the microphone on each slide so that you can listen to my explanation! You do not need the book for this. You literally read the slide and do what it says on each slide. The relevant illustration or text will already be provided for you on the slide.  The sessions only last around 20-30 minutes, hence each lesson would only ever focus on an illustration or page of text  at a time, in order to really hone in and teach the skills required for reading. 

1:30-2:00-Basic Skills LIVE session with Mrs Pelosi


Login to TEAMS using your child's login details to revise homophones. Then have a go at the attached worksheet below.



2:00-2:30-Go for Walk!


It is important to try and get some fresh air and exercise every day, as it lifts our mood and improves our fitness levels. So grab your shoes and wrap up warm! Whist on your walk, see if you can spot some Winter plants or animals!
