Watch this video and join in!

Pick 3 of the words and write them into a sentence.

Now pick 3 different words and practice writing them in your neatest handwriting.


Now that you have watched the full video and know what adventures Tony gets up to with his grandpa, we are going to focus on Tony’s trip into space where he and grandpa see an alien spaceship.

Imagine the alien spaceship beams them up! Can you describe one of the aliens on the spaceship?

Really use your imagination to describe what the alien looks like in detail.

When you have finished your description you can draw a picture of your alien and later in the week we might be able to post some of your pictures and your descriptions and see if you can match them up.


Today we are going to try one of the lessons from White Rose Maths. Below is a link to the video for the lesson and the worksheet which it will ask you to complete as you go along. All your practical work last week should help you. Don’t forget to use your Maths equipment to support you. Also continue to practise counting in tens and ones to check your answers, so if it says ‘2 tens and 4 ones equals 24’ check by counting 10, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24.

Question 2

You could make these numbers using any of your ways from last week.

Good luck and let us know how you get along. If you want an extra challenge you could also make your own true/false questions, using different representations of numbers, for the class to solve later in the week. Here’s an example.


Humans have always wanted to fly. Most of the early attempts were not very successful. Watch the video below and describe some of the inventions.

What inventions did you see?

Did they have anything in common?

Why do you think some were not successful?

Can you think of a way to change some of the inventions to make them work?

For today’s task I would like you to imagine that helicopters, planes, hot air balloons etc. have not been invented yet. Can you design your own invention that could allow humans to fly? You could use some of the ideas from the video to help you. Don’t forget to label or write about your invention to tell us more. Here are a few photos that might also inspire you.

End of the day story!
