You will need the ‘What am I?’ animal riddles sheet. Don’t worry if you can’t print the sheet, you just need to be able to read the riddle. Record your answers on a separate piece of paper if needed.


Read through each riddle (ask an adult to help if you get stuck). Try to work out what animal is being described. Draw a picture and write the name of the animal to show your answer.

We would like you to watch a story of your choosing today – there are some available on our website on the ‘Listen to a story’ page (several teachers have recorded stories for you to watch). Or you can find many versions of traditional tales and other stories on youtube.

Once you have finished watching talk to someone at home about the story. Can you tell them what the story was called? Can you tell them the author of the story? Can you tell them at least three things that happened in the story? Can you tell them your favourite part of the story?


Castle story – Middle

Listen to the story ‘Castle Adventure’ again if you want to or think back to what you remember from yesterday. Think about the following things in relation to the story: Who are the characters in the story? What do the characters do when they meet? How do the characters feel when this happens?


As we said we are trying to create a whole story this week and today our focus is on the middle of the story and you are going to create a new middle for your own castle story. Think about and include the following things in your story middle today 

  • What did the characters do when they met each other? (did something good/bad happen? Was someone captured? Was a spell put on someone? Was there a battle?)
  • How did the characters feel when this happened?

Write at least 3 sentences for the middle of your story, to tell us what the characters did.

Illustrate the middle of your story with a picture linked to what happened.

You will need the ‘telling the time – o’clock’ powerpoint, the interactive clock face template to create your own clocks and the ‘sequencing activities from my day sheet’ (optional)


Work through the telling the time powerpoint to understand what the different hands on a clock represent. Explore how we show ‘o’clock’ times on a clock face.


Activity 1: cut out the parts of a clock, stick the numbers in the correct place and then use a split pin to attach the clock hands (you can collect a split pin from the foyer at school if you don’t have any at home).


Activity 2: Draw three things you do during your day (one in the morning, one in the afternoon and one in the evening). Place your clock next to the picture and show the time you do this activity (o’clock times) by placing the clock hands correctly. Ask your adult to take a photo of each of your pictures with the clock next to it. (Or use the sheet to draw your three pictures and draw the clock hands on each face to show what time you did each activity.)
