Read the text 'Rocket Balloon' in your Home Learning Pack. If possible, teach an adult to Echo Read it with you, like we do in class.

Underline any words you are unsure of. Use a dictionary (there are several online versions you could use) to create a glossary of 6 tricky words.

The text can be downloaded below if you cannot find it.



This week we will be writing a set of instructions.

Have another look at the ‘Rocket Balloon’ text and then look at the text called ‘How to make a piñata’. (see below)

How are they the same? How are they different?

See if you can find the following features:

  • ‘How to…’ title
  • List of things you will need
  • Numbered instructions
  • Sentences starting with an imperative (bossy) verb
  • Time adverbials (until, next)
  • Diagrams
  • Background information
  • Rhetorical questions



This week we will be focusing on the 6 x tables.

Today’s challenge is to find the song ‘6x tables with Fred the Red' using the link below. Watch it through at least twice, joining in with the words and dance moves when you can.

Then open the website . (If you don’t already have an account, it is easy to create your own). Select 6x tables and complete steps 1a and 1b.



Our new Science topic is called ‘Changes of State’. We will be looking at solids, liquids and gases and how these can change. Have a look around your house. Can you find at least six things that are solid and six things that are liquid? Gases are trickier, but see how many you can find. If you need some ideas, take a look at the BBC Bitesize video clip ‘Gases in everyday life’ using the link below.

Try to explain, in your own words, how you have decided whether an object is a solid, a liquid or a gas.
