Good morning message

Good morning everyone!

I trust you enjoyed VE Day and had a relaxing weekend.

Q: When you look for something, why is it always in the last place you look?

A: Because once you have found it, you stop looking!

Below are the activities for today and I hope you enjoy completing them.

Best wishes,

Mr Griffin


Please pray with me

Let us start our day with a prayer:

Our Father, who art in Heaven,

hallowed be Thy name,

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done

on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day, our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses

as we forgive those that trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.


Time for a workout

Activity 2 - English

1. Listen to the story Instruction by Neil Gaiman 

  • Which fairy tale characters and settings did you recognise in the story? 
  • Why is the story called Instructions? Did you hear any instructions being given in the story? 


Now read the Question Booklet for Day 1.

2.  Carefully read through The Features of Instructions

  • Now read the three instructions on Catching a Dragon. 
  • Write the next three instructions. 
  • Read How to Catch a Dragon and compare these instructions with your own. 
  • Whose might be more successful in helping you to catch a dragon?! Why do you think that? 


3.  Read the first Extract from Instructions

  • Find and highlight each instruction in it. 
  • How many did you find? Give yourself a point for each one you find. (There are 16 – see Answers). 


Challenge:  Decide which your favourite bit in Instructions was. Draw this part of the story and write about what happened in it. 

Activity 3 - Art/ PSHE

Remember Odd Dog Out?  He finally realised that being himself was the best way to be. 


1)  Do the activities on BBC Bitesize to learn about the importance of self belief - believing in yourself - and managing your emotions.

2)  Have a go at drawing different feelings/ emotions using the examples below. 

  • Make feelings puppets by cutting the feelings shape out and sticking it on to a piece of card. 
  • Challenge:  Can you make up a short play with the feelings puppets for your family?
