Maths Task

Day 1

Today, we will be beginning to read The Paper bag Princess. Watch the video up to the part where the princess and dragon meet.  


Then, download the worksheet for Monday. Use this to draw or write about the story so far and predict what may happen next in the ‘I wonder’ section.

Each day please could you read your school book or a book with an adult at home.


During the week, it is also important to continue learning phonics.


Go to the Phonics play website and play the free phonics games for phase 5. Picnic on Pluto is a good game to practice real and nonsense words.





This week for maths please could you follow this link if your child is a year 1:




And this link if your child is a year 2:





Complete one lesson per day by watching the video and completing the corresponding worksheet in the maths folder below.


Look at the titles of the worksheets for the order of the lessons.


This week Year 2 will be completing Autumn 1: Week 6 lessons.


This week Year 1 will be completing Autumn 1: week 8 lessons.

Day 2

Go back to the link above, and listen to the rest of the story today. Were your predictions correct?  What happened in the end? Is that what you expected? How did the princess feel in the end? Why didn’t they get married? What kind of person do you think the prince is? Did he deserve to be rescued? Download and complete the worksheet for Tuesday. There are different levels to choose from.

Day 3

Have a look at the example letter for Wednesday. Can you hunt the key vocabulary? How would you feel if you had defeated a dragon to save somebody, and then after all that effort they didn’t want you because you looked dirty? 

Maybe you could pretend to be the princess and take a picture showing how you feel? Think of some questions you would ask the princess. Then, pretend to be the princess and come up with some answers.

Day 4

 Look at the WAGOLL letter again. Look closely at this sentence: You may be a lean, clean prince, but you don’t have any brains and you are a bum!

Explain that ‘but’ is used to extend sentences and we usually use it to show the opposite. E.g. You hair is long, but hers is longer.

You may be kind, but you shouted earlier.

Orally create sentences about the prince, “you may be… but”

Then, have a go at writing similar sentences using ‘but’.

Day 5

Today, you will be planning your own letter to a friend, princess or prince. Imagine you had fought a dragon to save a friend, princess or prince. How would you feel if they turned you away because you were dirty? What would you want to write to them if they had been so rude? Plan your letter by drawing your ideas or recording them!
