This week we are going to focus on money. I have put up some videos to take you through the anchor task, guided practice, workbook and journaling for each lesson. If you find the workbook too tricky then try the different worksheets for each lesson. I expect most of you to complete the workbook. If you do not have your workbook then write the answers on some paper or in your book. The answers will be revealed next week.

Lesson 1

Goal: To identify speech expression.

Read the text 'The Pudding Like a Night on the Sea' in your head first. Underline any unknown words and check them with an adult or using a online dictionary. 

Read through the text again and highlight any speech. Just highlight what the person is saying. 

Read the first half aloud and try different voices for the speech. 


Lesson 2

Goal: To read with expression. 

Read through the text and use different voices for the different characters. 

How are the characters feeling? Can you show using expression how the characters are feeling?

Read the text to someone in your house and ask them how they think the characters are feeling. Ask your family member to give you a score out of 5 and 2 stars (2 positive comments) and 1 wish (1 improvement) on your speech expression. 


Lesson 3

Goal: To answer questions about the text.

Re-read the text to remind you of the extract. 

Answer the questions using the text to help you.

I have also attached the answers so you can see how you did. 



Lesson 4

Goal: To write questions.

Write 5 questions in the style of AR. For every question you write you will need 3 possible answers. Try and make your answers similar but only 1 is allowed to be correct. 



Who is the pudding for?

A) Huey

B) The mother

C) The father


Lesson 5

Goal: To use information from the text.

Re-read the text again to remind you what they did to the pudding. 

Draw what you think the pudding looked like during this extract. You can label your picture with quotes to show what the children did. 



Here are the answers for Week 2- Lesson 2- Correcting the speech mistakes. Check your work

Lesson 1

Goal: To solve riddles

Warm up:

Write as many questions as you can where the answer is egg.

For example-

What do chickens lay?


Look at the riddles. Can you solve them? Write an answer for each riddle. Check to see if you were correct using the answer sheet.

Have a go at writing a riddle for Miss Greenaway and Miss Brodley to solve.

Lesson 2

Goal: To write similes and metaphors

Warm up:-

Get your grown up to time you for 1 minute

Write down as many nouns and adjectives as you can in 1 minute. How many did you get?



Metaphor- A metaphor is used to make a comparison between two things that aren't alike but do have something in common.

For example-

  • The classroom was a zoo. (The classroom is loud and crazy like a zoo but isn’t an actual zoo)
  • He is a night owl. (A person who stays up late and is active at night but isn’t an actual owl)


Simile- A simile compares two different things. The simile is usually in a phrase that begins with or has the words "as" or "like."

For example-

  • During the storm, my sister was as brave as a lion.
  • He was as tall as a tree.
  • Her eyes shone like diamonds.  


Write your own similes and metaphors. You can choose what you would like to write them for. You might like to write them about a fruit or vegetable.

Lesson 3

Goal: To write a poem

You can choose any form of poetry to write your own poem. You can choose a topic of your choice that you would like to write a poem about. You might like to write a poem about school, football, rainbows, a thank you poem for the NHS and keyworkers... anything you like!

These are some different forms of poetry that you might like to do. However, you can choose something different to these:

  • Riddle (Have a look at the examples from Monday)
  • Kenning poem (The reader has to guess what you are describing. You should only use 2 or 3 words in each line. These are usually a noun + verb. For example- a family protector. There are normally 5/6 lines in a kenning poem. We have written a kenning poem in class!)
  • Rhyming poem (A poem which includes words that rhyme at the end of each line. You might like to just rhyme lines 2 and 4. It's up to you which words you choose to rhyme!)
  • Acrostic poem (Chosen word down the left hand side of the paper. Write a sentence/ rhyme for each letter of the word. The sentence should be linked to the topic word) There is an example below-


Red begins the rainbow.








Challenge- Try and include a simile or a metaphor in your poem.


Lesson 4

Goal: To publish and perform a poem.

Write your poem out in your best handwriting. Make sure you have the correct punctuation in the correct places. Then decorate your poem with pictures.


After, read your poem aloud to a grown up. When you are reading your poem  remember to think about how loud you are and how clear you are. You might want to practice first! Then, ask your grown up for feedback on your performance. They should give you 2 stars and 1 wish (2 things they really liked about your poem and the way you performed it and 1 thing you could improve on for next time) Let us know what they say!


Lesson 5

Goal: To practise spelling words.


Using the year 3 and 4 spelling list, play hangman or bingo with these words with someone at home.




Use the year 3 and 4 spelling list to make a wordsearch.
