All of your work for today has been set for you on Purple Mash today. There are several videos for you to watch and then task to complete, based on this learning. If you have any problems or questions, please do keep in touch with us vis the emails below.

Remember to keep yourself active throughout the day and take some well-deserved brain breaks!

We are going to continue reading our book today called ‘The Haunting of Rose Cottage’. We would like you to read Chapter 2 and complete the online multiple choice quiz afterwards.

Remember to look at the underlined words as you read the text. These are words you may be unfamiliar with and if you hover over the word, it will tell you its meaning.

Make sure you are completing your reading record everyday – we will check this when we’re back in school!



We are going to continue our unit of work based on the book called ‘The Viewer’ this week.

Task 1: Today you are going to have a go at planning out your ideas for what could be the opening to our story. Your ideas are all going to be based on the first image that we’ve been looking at.

Read the prompts on the 2Do today to help you create your ideas then type your ideas onto the template.



Complete the 2Do today, explaining the characteristics of solids, liquids and gases. Use the vocabulary you learnt yesterday in your writing today!
