Today we are going to listen to a story. I have chosen this story as it has lots of ai words in it.

As you listen to it, write down all the ai, ay and a-e words you hear. Did you spell them correctly?!
Alfie helped read this story but he was a bit of a tinker so I do apologise!


Practice your ai, ay, a-e words by reading this book on epic!

Today you can finish off any work from the week that you need to or try and edit and improve the work you did yesterday or have a go at some independent writing using one of the Pobble pictures below.


We are really enjoying playing games on a Friday and last week in school we challenged ourselves to complete a jigsaw in a certain amount of time.

I have added some ideas for addition games below or you could set yourself a timed challenge for a bit of fun.

Why not play an addition game to practise your bonds to 20.

I have added a blank grid if you want to make your own.

Card games

Game 1 – Use your cards Ace to 9. Play the game in the style of snap but if you get a bond to 10 shout ‘Bond’.

Game 2 – Use your cards Ace to 9 for 2 suits. Lay them out face down. Take it in turns to turn over two cards. If you get a pair that make a bond to 10 you get to keep them. Who will have the most cards at the end?

Game 3 – Use your cards Ace to 9. Spread them out face up on the floor. Time yourself. How quickly can you make all the bonds to 10?

Dominoes – Can you sort your dominoes into 3 piles – adds to less than 10, adds to 10, adds to more than 10? Guess which pile will have the most before you begin.


Today we are going to look at the second part of our music lesson based on the story Tiddilik the Frog. I wonder if you were like the children in school and asked to hear the second part of the story before today because they really wanted to find out what happened. I have added the links for both part 1 and part 2 in case you missed the lesson last week. Just don’t forget to scroll down to find the story.

Part 1 https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-ks1-tiddalik-the-frog-1/zj9spg8

Part 2 https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/music-ks1-tiddalik-the-frog-2/zv83y9q

In the second part of Tiddalik the Frog the thirsty animals visit the wise Wombat. He tells them to stage a ‘Funny Show’ for Tiddalik: if they can make the frog laugh all the water might come out of his belly. Watch the video using the Part 2 link above to learn the song.

In the song the music changes tempo (speed of the music) to show how the animals are feeling. At the beginning they are anxious because they are so thirsty, then they are sad that Tiddalik has drank all the water, but at the end they are happy because they have a good idea to make him laugh and get the water out.

Think about how different music makes you feel.

What songs make you happy?

What tempo creates a sad feeling?

Could you play an instrument in different ways to create different feelings for the audience?

Can you sing a sentence in different ways to show different emotions?


Story of Creation

Watch this video which tells the Story of Creation.


You have a choice of tasks to complete:

  • Act out or create a scene to show each day of creation and take a photo or video to show the 7 days of creation.
  • Choose your favourite day of creation and draw a picture showing what happened on that day.

End of the day Story
