Continue to read books that match your book band level using this link. After reading the book, answer the questions with a grown up.

Please email if you are not sure what your book band level is.

Please read the book ‘Anna and the Third Leaf’ and complete the activities.

For each chapter, can you complete the quiz?


Please complete the phonics activities that have been set for you on Purplemash. Remember to check your 2Do list on the home page on Purplemash for this.

Also, don’t forget to watch the daily phonics lessons on YouTube.


Can you create a spring scene using items from around your house?

Remember to use the spring checklist you completed last week to include all the features of spring. Make sure you label all the items you include. Be as creative as possible. Use different resources to make a college picture or even try to make it 3D! 


Watch this video and be inspired to make your own creative piece.

You can use a paper plate to start your dot, and add colours to decorate it. You could use a range of materials; pens, pencils, paint, stampers.


Try a printing technique by using any objects, such as a milk bottle lid and printing it on the paper.

What will you make?
