I'd like to you to have a go at the questions in the document attached 

Place Value questions and answers

Remember to check your answers and send a picture to Miss Kaur for her to see how you've done 


Today I have a challenge for you! 


I have some photos of how to build a dream catcher but it doesn't have the instructions! 

Can you add some instructions based on what the pictures are showing you to do? 


Remember; Great instructions use... 

Imperative/bossy verbs e.g. pull, sit, hit or stir

Time order words, e.g. first, after that, next 




If you can find the items around the house, can you follow your instructions to build a dream catcher? 


If not / as an extra I've got a video for you to have a go at drawing your own stunning dream catcher! smiley

This week we will be looking at the Journey of the Mayflower, the first people from Britain to settle in America and the very famous Thanksgiving holiday that marks the events that happened because of the journey. 


I have included a video clip for you to know a little more about the Mayflower

The Mayflower

Drawings to represent the Mayflower journey

click on the pictures to make them bigger and to see the description

"The Boy who fell off the Mayflower"

Hear an extract of the exciting tale of John Howland, the boy who fell off the Mayflower, retold by Isabelle from the Pilgrims Gallery.

This is the story which the pictures have been taken from

I would like you to have a go at describing the journey, while the pictures I have added show the worse part of the journey, it was calm to begin with and they did land safely in America! 


I've started the description for you, if you look carefully you will see lots of adjectives, verbs and adverbs that I have included in my starter.  


It was calm and cool on the water, the ship gently swayed over the waves. Suddenly there was a call, 'Storm ahead! Tie everything down!', the sailors ran to the now damp deck, moving rapidly around, holding on to anything to stay up as the waves became more violent.

Yesterday was thanksgiving, today we are going to write down the things we give thanks for... 


It is traditional for people to share this before they sit down to their big turkey dinner. It was what they did during the the first Thanksgiving as the Pilgrims shared a meal with the Native Americans. 



This is an artist impression of the first meal
