Wednesday 3rd June

Mr Griffin's Good Morning Message

Good morning everyone!

Today is Wednesday 3rd June and I hope you have a lovely day! 

As promised, a picture of Ted!

As you can see, he is very happy to have been rescued from the book corner. He has had a shower and has now dried out and is ready to have lots of adventures in my home and garden.

He is also very happy that he has some children to play with.

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.


It's time for a workout

Activity 1 - Maths


Go to Lesson 3 - Grouping

1.  Listen to the video and answer the questions.

2. Open the worksheet below and answer the questions.

3.  Check your answers below.  Did you get them right?

Activity 2 - English

1. Story time 

Go back to and re-listen to Diary of a Wombat. 


2. Verbs and tenses 

What are verbs? What does being ‘in the past tense’ mean? 

  • Carefully read The Past Tense Simple and Progressive Forms and then go back to the start of Diary of a Wombat. Be ready to pause the video so you can see the Monday and Tuesday pages. 
  • On Monday’s and Tuesday’s Verbs record all the verbs used on those days in the diary. 
  • What tense are the verbs in? Confirm that they are in the past tense. 
  • Are the verbs in the simple or progressive form of the past tense? Confirm that they are in the simple form of the past tense. 


3. Writing time 

Look at Wombat’s Simple Past Sentences

  • Rewrite each sentence using the progressive form of the past tense. 
  • Now read the sentences on Wombat’s Progressive Past Sentences. 
  • Rewrite each sentence in the simple past tense. 
  • Check with the Answers for both to see how you got on. 


Fun Challenge:

  • On Verbs, write down in the past tense any verbs that say what you have done today (watched TV, played in the garden, had lunch). 
  • Rewrite each one in the progressive past (was watching, was playing). 

Music Break

Go to Ms Hume's Music Page and have fun joining in with her latest music session:

Activity 3 - Science

We are going to be moving onto a new topic in science today. 


We will be looking at the Earth and thinking about ways that we can help the Earth.


Today we are going to think about our environment.  It is important that we keep the environment healthy by taking care of the soil, the water, the air and all the plants and animals that live here. That way the Earth can keep giving us all the things that we need to be happy and healthy. Often though, we are not keeping the Earth healthy and this has an affect on the climate


1.  Watch this video and read the lesson below to learn more on climate change


In your books, can you answer these questions?

Why is the climate changing?

What is carbon dioxide doing to the Earth?

What can you do to help stop climate change?

2.  Create your own poster on climate change.   What is it and most importantly what can you do to help stop it.

I have put a link to Miss Writer's page as she has  some example posters near the bottom of her page.

I hope you enjoyed your activities today.

Best wishes,

Mr Griffin
