Please read for at least 30 minutes each day - see the separate reading folder for ideas to help you improve your reading skills.


Tuesday – Column subtraction

Watch this video to remind yourself of the method then have a go at the challenges. If you get stuck, watch the video again, ask an adult or you can email your teacher.

Challenge 1 - good for practising if you're not too confident

Challenge 2 - Confident and would like to practise

Challenge 3 - Super confident

We're aware lots of you won't have a printer to print off the sheets - don't worry, you can choose a few of the questions online and jot them down.


If you have completed all the tasks from last week (they are now all in the 'Extra Literacy' folder) we will put another one up each day to keep your Literacy skills ticking over!

Week 2 Task 2

Character feelings graph.

Read through or listen to the story again (text file below) or watch it being played out on these lovely videos:

Tin forest puppet show

Tin Forest animation


How is the Old Man feeling at each point in the story?

Plot the Old Man's emotions on the character graph, like we did for Mariana in Mariana and the Merchild. There is a blank graph below which you can copy or print and also an example of a mood graph.


You will have a new set of spellings to learn each week - check the Spelling Bee folder for the lists and ideas to help you practise.
