Reading Comprehension


We're going to use a BBC reading lesson. It involves watching 2 videos and answering questions in between and then reading some extracts and answering questions. Attached is a document with questions and activities to complete on the sheet. After completing the activities, tell us, has it left you wanting to read that book? Use the link below to access the lesson.


Spelling Test 

Click on the appropriate link for the words you've been practising all week. Then click the  "Practice / Test" button and begin your test. If you make a mistake, don't worry, it will guide you and help you to spell it correctly - all good learning. At the end of the "test" a window will open in the middle of your screen and at the bottom of the window it will say how many you got correct on the 1st attempt, 2nd attempt etc.



Can you help Grandpa George? Watch Episode 3 again: ‘They have fans, but we have friends!’

As always with PSCHE, if you can discuss it with an adult then please do so.

For the activity, you need to think about how Grandpa could Safely use the tablet to solve his problems – be as inventive as possible. See the PDF below.



Watch and join in with the video and then complete the listening activity.

Try to do both if you can - it's good for you and the mind.


Sit in a quiet space eg in the garden, in your room and spend 5 - 10 minutes just listening and focusing on what you can hear, thinking about the following questions on the  PDF below. 

    When you hear a sound, do you start thinking about which sounds you like and which ones you don’t?

    Why do you think our minds do that?

    When you hear a sound, does it sometimes make you start thinking about something else (a memory, for             example)?

     Do you normally notice these sounds when you are in this room? If not, why do you think you don’t notice them?

     Try to think of 5 different sounds and fill in words linked with each sound and answers to the questions above in         the 5 though bubbles on the sheet - 1 bubble for each sound.

You'll be amazed at what you hear when you stop and really listen.
