Friday 15th May


Today we are going to look at using the word and to join sentences. Please go to BBC Bitesize. This is the lesson from the 12th May.

First watch the video to find out about joining words.

The word and is a joining word that can be used in different ways.

It can be used to add more information to a sentence. For example:
I like fish and chips.

It can also be used to join two different clauses together. A clause is a group of words that contain a subject and a verb. For example:
I went upstairs and I found a spider.

Complete the first two video activities and then look at activity 3 below. 

  • Activity 3: Writing sentences using 'and'
  • Imagine you live deep in the ocean.
  • Write three sentences explaining what you can see. Try to use the word 'and' in each sentence.
  • Here is an example: I can see a whale and some seaweed.


Mental Starter: Can you say out loud all your number bonds to 10?

Today we are going to try and remember how to count in 5s. Have a go at counting in 5s out loud from 0 – 50. Remember the numbers always end in 5 or 0. Now have a try at completing the activities below. Be careful because some of the sequences go backwards as well as forwards.

The sheet and answers are saved at the bottom of this page. 


Watch the video about Longleat Safari Park. Saved at the bottom of the page are some questions about the animals you see in the video. The answers are there as well.

Why don’t you see how many of the questions you can answer while listening to Kate give you a virtual tour of Longleat? You can always pause the tour, or go back if you miss an answer that you would like to know!

See the questions and answers saved at the bottom of this page. I hope you enjoyed the video.
