Wow – what an amazing start to the week. There was so much good work sent in yesterday, I don’t know where to start. Writing, acting, adding, drawing, creating, experimenting….. The list goes on.

Although a number of you send pictures every day, some of you send them weekly or save up a few and send them all together. In order to relieve the daily pressure a little bit and hopefully share more of the same activities together, we will be uploading your photos and videos on Wednesday and a Friday. So if Monday is anything to go by we will have lots to share tomorrow.

Write a postcard to Mummy bear from Baby bear from the Moon!

Pretend you are baby bear and tell Mummy bear all about your trip.

Add lots of detail and description and think about…

  • What you saw?
  • Who you saw?
  • What you did?
  • What did it feel like?
  • Have you had a nice time?
  • Would you go back again?

Remember to use some of the questions you thought of yesterday and the answers you gave as Baby bear to help you!

You could use a template like the ones below or just write your postcard in your books.

When you have written the postcard think about what picture you can draw for the front to show his adventure!



Our next lesson delivered by White Rose Maths looks at using our knowledge of tens and ones.

It helps children to recognise that 13 + 5 is the same as 15 + 3 as they both have one ten and eight ones = 18.

It also shows them that 13 + 5 is the same as 5 + 13 as you can add in any order.

Although it does not show it in the video, it is worth making the additions out of tens rods and ones to help reinforce the idea.

The worksheet to accompany the video is below.
