Thursday 23rd April

Good morning Kestrels! What a lovely week it has been so far! I have enjoyed sitting out in my garden on my computer while I upload new work and answer your emails. My children have been playing out there at the same time though so I've had to dodge a few footballs! It was great to speak with some of you today while we did story time, I really enjoyed it! Don't worry if you missed it though, we will do it again every Wednesday at 2pm. Keep an eye out for the invites smiley


For your learning today, I have provided some reading comprehension and handwriting for English, and we are continuing with time for maths. As your additional work today, I have 'borrowed' a kindness challenge from the Hobby page for you to have a go at. Don't forget to continue with your Mary Anning project or log in to TT Rockstars too! 


I hope you enjoy all of today's learning! smiley 

English: Reading Comprehension

Read the following extracts and answer the questions below. Remember to refer back to the text to find your answers!




  1. What does Willy Wonka’s factory make?
  2. Find the three adjectives that describe the competition winners?
  3. How do you think Charlie felt when he won the competition? Explain your answer.
  4. What is special about Matilda?
  5. Why do you think her family do not appreciate her talent?
  6. Out of the three different Roald Dahl books which one would you like to read and why?


When you have finished these questions, just like we do at school during guided reading you could practice your beautiful handwriting! You could just do this on paper, remembering to use lead in strokes, or use some of the sheets below. 


Were you at our story time yesterday afternoon? If so, give this chapter 12 quiz a try! 


If you missed it don't worry, you can watch the chapters we read here:

Maths: Duration of time



Try answering the following questions (make sure you find out any you don't know the answer to):


  1. How many hours are there in a day?
  2. How many minutes are there in an hour?
  3. How many minutes are there in half an hour?
  4. How many seconds in a minute?
  5. If I was at the cinema for 120 minutes, how long was the film?



Now see if you can work out the duration in the following problems:



Kindness - Positivity Rocks!


Why not paint some rocks and leave them out and about on your exercise walk?  Someone else can find them and will be really cheered up by seeing your positive thoughts.  They might even be seen by one of your friends.  Don't forget to take a picture of your rocks and send it in to the Kestrel email so that everyone will know which was yours!  

Felt pens, Sharpies and acrylic paint all work well on rocks.  So does any old gloss paint that might be in a garage at home.  Don't forget to ask for an adult to help!
