Westonzoyland Primary School ‘Achieving, Learning and Growing Together’


Wednesday 29th April

What a rainy day it was yesterday! I got very wet going out on my daily walk (but not as wet as my dog Mollie!). For today's learning I have a picture and questions for you, then reading some temperatures in Maths. I did have an outdoor activity planned for today but, in anticipation for further rain, have chosen an active indoor activity instead. Don't forget our storytime at 2pm today on zoom where we will read the next chapter of 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', I can't wait to hear what it is like inside the factory!


Have a lovely day and I can't wait to see some of you at 2pm smiley

English: Picture with questions


For this task, I would like you to look at the image and answer the questions below. 



  1. Do you prefer hot or cold weather and why?
  2. Why do you think the man has fallen from? Describe in as much detail as possible.
  3. What was the man doing on his adventure?
  4. How will he escape? Come up with a plan to help him escape?
  5. What do you think will happen when he hits the ground?


Sentence Challenge:


Read these sentences-


The man was scared. He tried to move but could not. His mind raced.


What did you think? I think they are pretty boring! I would like you make it more interesting – use expanded noun phrases, conjunctions, similes,


Picture Challenge:

If the sun was shining and all the ice had melted, how different would this picture look? Draw this scene as if it was a beautiful, sunny summers day.

Maths Reading scales of temperature



Try to find the answer to the following questions: 

  1. What unit can we use to measure temperature?
  2. If the temperature increases what happens to the number on the scale?
  3. If the temperature decreases what happens to the number on the scale?
  4. Complete the thermometers:



Compare using <,> signs. Be careful to look at the scale!



Find more of these style questions at the bottom of the page.




The first thermometer tells us the temperature on the playground and the second the classroom. The temperature on the playground is lower than the classroom. How much lower?










And Finally:


For today's task, i'd like you to get active! Your job is to design your own workout just like Joe Wicks. You can use this clip for inspiration or use the workout cards for ideas for different moves.


How you present this is up to you! You could send me a YouTube style video of your workout, you could make a storyboard/comic strip, or you could write it as instructions (remembering to use a 'what you need' and 'what you do' sections, fronted adverbials and adverbs). Be creative! I can't wait to see the results! smiley
