Good morning Robins. I hope you enjoyed all the activities you chose to do yesterday. This Friday, you’ve all been invited into school for an hour, so we can get together in two groups at different times. I expect it will feel a little strange, when you haven’t been back in school for months. It will be lovely to get together and I’m looking forward to seeing as many of you who are able to come.
Your ‘White Rose Maths’ lessons continue today with more work on measures. Today your worksheets are about ‘millilitres’ (see separate blog).
Today’s BBC Bitesize English lesson is about ‘Alphabetical order’. You will be practising putting items in alphabetical order, using the first three letters of a word. There is a short video for you to watch, when you will be learning about alphabetical order with Marty. Then for the first activity, you will help Marty order some boxes in alphabetical order. The remaining two activities are similar: ‘Ordering words’ and ‘Advanced alphabetical order’. For each activity, you have four lists of words, which you have to re-write in alphabetical order. Remember, when words start with the same letter, you need to look at the second letter and if words start with the same two letters, you need to look at the third letter.
Today’s third lesson is German and is called ‘Numbers, food and drink’. You will learn how to count to ten and to talk about food and drink in German. There are two verbs that you will use – essen (to eat) and trinken (to drink). First, watch a short film demonstrating how to talk about food and drink in German. Afterwards, you can read the phrases that you learnt, which are listed with food items such as chips, pizza, pasta, toast and chocolate. For the first activity, find a piece of paper and ask an adult to cut it into ten equal pieces. Write the numbers one through to ten on the pieces and fold them, so you can no longer see the numbers. Select one of the pieces and say the number in German. Afterwards, there is a Twinkl worksheet for you to print, with pictures of different foods, with their German names. Place the cards face down and the aim is to turn over the cards, trying to find a matching pair. When you turn over a card, say the food name out loud to practise pronunciation.

Seaside Holidays in the Past
I am now giving you a longer activity, which I hope you will take your time over – probably today and tomorrow, maybe longer. I would like you to create a booklet about Seaside Holidays in the Past, dividing it into sections. Your sections could cover different time periods, starting with the Victorian period and moving through different time periods up to today. Alternatively, you could split your booklet into some different themes, such as ‘Sea Bathing’, ‘On the Beach’, ‘Accommodation’, ‘Transport to the Seaside’, ‘Food at the Seaside’ and ‘Entertainment’. If you choose the second idea, you may decide to focus just on Victorian seaside holidays, or think about how things have changed over the years, or stayed the same. It is your choice and I want you to enjoy creating your booklet, with writing and pictures. You can include your own drawings, or photos from the website, or photos you find online. There is no right or wrong way to do this activity and the size of your booklet is your choice.
I gave you some pages from a book yesterday, which you can use as research material for this task. However, I have some further pages from a different book for you to read, with lots of information, which you may want to include in your booklet.
You can use paper you have at home for this booklet, or use any of the seaside paper I have uploaded to earlier blogs.
Have a lovely day and again choose the activities you fancy doing today. I look forward to seeing you tomorrow.
