This week we will learn about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes.

Look at the 2D/3D shapes PowerPoint and go through the various names of shapes and their properties.

Find different 2D and 3D shapes by finding everyday objects in your house. What shapes are they? Discuss with a grown up.

Record in your books the shapes/objects that you can find.

You have to decide and Sort into 2D shapes or 3D shapes columns. Use the worksheet for support or you can draw your own table.


2D shapes

3D shapes

Sticker card - rectangle

Tissue box - cuboid

100 square - square

Football - sphere


EXT –Explain and describe the objects. E.g …The tissue box is a cuboid because it has 6 faces that include 2 square faces and 4 rectangular faces.


In this lesson we will be using maps to locate and name the continents and oceans of the world.  Use the Powerpoint slide show to introduce and discuss new vocabulary.  Look at  the satellite images of the world on slides 8,9 and 10.  What can you see?  With your grown-up, see if you can work out which parts are land and sea.  If you have a globe or map at home it would be useful for you to find this for the activity.

Using the powerpoint, or your own maps / globe or the internet, can you locate and label the continents and oceans on the worksheet?  If you don't have a printer at home, you could trace the map onto your own piece of paper and colour it in before you label it. 

Included below is a Knowledge Organiser that we will be using for this block of work. 

Tuesday 5th January 



In this lesson you will be planning for your Thursday big write, which is focussed on using command sentence types to write a set of instructions. 

Milly and Max are going on a trip and need your help to decide what to pack.

First you will need to decide where they are going, and what the weather will be like.  You then need to list the type of clothing they will need and than anything else that might be useful. Make sure you read the WILF on the worksheet and remember to include everything on it. 


Today we are going to describe the properties of 3D shapes to include: edges, vertices and faces and recognise and  name common 3D shapes (cuboids, including cubes, pyramids and spheres).

Look at the PowerPoint from yesterday's lesson. complete the given worksheet by using the correct vocabulary (like edges, vertices and faces) to describe different 3D shapes. 


This is our first lesson on our new PSCHE strand called 'Changes'.

See information on the lesson below.

Spelling Test: List 14 words

Then practise spellings for the next spelling test using Look, Cover, Write, Check.

Please note that the Spring 1 Spelling List is on the class page. 

SPAG lesson: In this lesson we will be focussing on different sentence types.  Go through the Powerpoint, which explains the four main sentence types: statement, question, command and exclamation. Then complete the following tasks on the worksheet: 1, 2, 3, 7, 9.  Continue to question 10 if you would like to challenge yourself. 


Today we will learn how to recognise and draw lines of symmetry on symmetrical patterns, including patterns they create.

Play symmetry game:


Create a  symmetrical pattern on the butterfly using the pre-coloured sheet, then create a symmetrical pattern on the butterfly choosing own colours and the create a symmetrical pattern on the blank butterfly choosing own shapes/patterns and colours.


We are going to continue our topic on Materials.

Today we are going to find out about people who have developed useful new materials by learning about John McAdam.

Read through the information on the Lesson Presentation. Think about the process of macadamisation and as this was a significant change in road building. Until then rural roads were often muddy, slippery and dangerous and urban roads were cobbled making them bumpy and uncomfortable to travel over. 

Complete the * activity sheet.

Ext: Use the internet to find out who discovered tar and how did it help the macadam roads.

Look at the last slide of the PowerPoint to find out about other people who have developed useful new materials.

Thursday 7th January 



Using your plan from Tuesday, today you will be writing out a set of instructions for Milly or Max.  Remember that you will be using imperative verbs to make command sentences, for example, 'Fold your jacket and put it in the case.'  Your writing should include the following: 

  • An underlined title (such as 'Milly's Packing List')
  • Numbered steps (for example 1. Fold your jacket and put it in the case.)
  • Conjunctions for explanations (for example 1. Fold your jacket and put it in the case so it will not get creased.)
  • 'Time' adverbs (for example 1. First, fold your jacket and put it in the case so it will not get creased.)
  • Challenge: Use commas to separate items on a list (such as shorts, tops and flip-flops.)

Aim to write at least 8 sentences. A word bank has been included below to help you.
