Good Morning

Good morning Ash Class. It is important that you fit your learning into a time table which works best for you, but below is our suggested format for you. Please remember if you have any problems with today's work to send Miss Bridges and Mrs Causer an email at We would also love to see photographs of your work today. Good luck with your challenges.


Collective Worship

Discuss these scenarios:



Starter: Round to the nearest 100 

Have a look the numbers below. Which one is the odd one out why? Write a sentence to explain your views. 
HINT- Think about all of the work we have completed on rounding. 


Main: To interpret pictograms 

This week, we have started to look at pictograms. Remember, whilst solving problems it is important you look carefully at the scale of the pictogram. Read the question carefully to ensure you know what is asking you to do. 



Starter: To use standard English (was/were did/done)

Main: To use fronted adverbials whilst explaining how something works. 


Revisit fronted adverbials by joining in the Oak Academy lesson below. Click on the picture below to load it. 


Have a go at writing an explanation text which explains how your getting ready for school machine works. Don’t forget to write in order and use fronted adverbials. If you feel like you have already written everything you can about the getting ready for school machine- you could do it about a different machine from the Wallace and Grommit's Cracking Contraption videos on youtube. 

Guided Reading 

LO: To explore the introduction of an explanation text. 


Read the introduction from the explanation text called... 'How we digest food'. Can you summarise it? What is it's purpose? 


Consider other features of explanation texts. What sub-headings could we expect to see?

Our class story: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

LO: To review words we have learnt before

Have a look at some of the words that we have learnt this year. Play a game with somebody in your family- give them the meaning and see if they can guess the word or perhaps you could draw a picture.


Dusk, Shimmering, Scrawny, Insecure, Blustery, Howl, Dewy, Sweltering, Electrifying, Hazy, Downpour, Scrumptious, Ravenous, Twilight


LO:Apply my knowledge and understanding. 



Now is time to apply everything you have learnt during this unit.


Design your own zoo- using the Chester Zoo website for support.

You must think about the habits where each animal would live. You can find this out on the zoo website- or research it. How can you ensure the enclosures are like the habitats?

You must also group your animals together, having similar animals closer together (explain why too). Don’t forget to have a section just for invertebrates.


To make a sandwich to fit the design brief.


Today you are going to create the sandwich you designed yesterday. You may make some changes to your sandwiches based on the information you will learn below.


There are many that vegetables and other foods can be prepared. You must always make sure an adult is helping you when you are preparing food with certain utensils.


The first method of preparation we will look at is grating. This is commonly used for cheese but you can also use it to grate some fruits and vegetables. The video below shows you how to grate cheese. Remember you can prepare some of your vegetables in the same way.

How to Grate Cheese - Cooking with Kids demonstrates how to great cheese - a skill that will allow you to make your pasta and pizza perfect.Steps1. Start with washing your...

The next methods we are going to look at are the 'Bridge' and 'Claw' methods.  watch the video below. Remember do not try this unless an adult is helping you.

Knife Skills - Bridge and Claw method

Adopt a School chef, Idris Caldora, demonstrates the 'bridge' and 'claw' methods to safely cut and prepare fruit and vegetables.

Finally the last thing you need to know what to do is to spread butter on a piece of bread. Ask an adult to show you how this is done!


Now you have looked at different methods of preparation  you now need to make your design.

Did you change anything? 

What was the most challenging aspect of this project?



We can't wait to see what your sandwiches look like!
