Story starter

Professor Plum had been locked away in his laboratory for days now, barely even stopping to eat or drink.

He rested his left arm on the dusty pile of books scattered across his desk, and with his right hand he gently flicked the conical flask in front of him. The red and orange liquid inside coughed and spluttered as heat from the Bunsen burner excited it from below.

Professor Plum wiped his weary eyes; only the excitement of finally finishing the potion kept him awake. Just a few more hours, then it would be ready…

Good morning everyone.

I hope you had a lovely long weekend. Did you see any of the VE celebrations? I made some flags by cutting up some plastic bag and I learnt how to bake scones! Have you done any baking whilst we have been at home? Send me an email telling me all about it.

Now back to our learning.

I have made you all new packs which are ready to be picked up from the office at school or be delivered to you. Ask a grown up to get in touch with school if you have any problem getting hold of them. I know that you won't have them today but I wanted to start us off on the first writing task. I have put this picture of Professor Plum in your pack. Have a look at it here today.

First look at the picture and read the story starter. Read it a couple of times.

Next try these questions in your blue book. You will have to use your imagination as there are not any right or wrong answers.

Write the date and answer in full sentences in your book.

Questions about the picture.

  1. Who is Professor Plum?

  2. What potion is he making?

  3. Has the Professor chosen to lock himself away?

  4. Why hasn't he had any sleep?

  5. What might the vessels and books on the table contain?

  6. If you could make any magic potion, what would you make?

  7. What do you think the professor keeps in his pockets? We will come back to Professor Plum tomorrow! Now we need to do some maths. Have a look at this lesson on part/whole. Try the activities in your book.

To describe the part whole relationship | Primary | Maths

In this lesson, you will explore and describe the part-whole relationship. We will look at what a whole is and various examples in real-life situations. We will then use this understanding to explore different examples of parts which make up the whole.

This afternoon I would like you to check the 2dos on purple mash, I can see that some of you are completing the tasks but some of the activities are not being looked at. Have a look and see what you can do. Let me know if you have any problems logging on. When you get your new pack you will see this sheet. It gives you a selection of non-screen activities to choose from. Have a look and choose one to do this afternoon. You may have already started a couple of them as I have suggested them in the past. Have a good day. Stay in touch. Mrs Jenkins.
