Please watch the challenge video  from Ms Mitchell and Miss Fermor on the Seal website under 'challenges'.


This week we are going to be researching and playing some games that were played before technology existed. To begin with we are going to be learning about prepositions and instruction writing as we will need this when we write our very own set of instructions for a game.

 LO: To understand the use of prepositions

SC1) I can discuss what a preposition is

SC2) I can name prepositions

SC3) I can identify prepositions

 Have a look at the PowerPoint on prepositions in the attachments. For some, this may be a recap.

 LO: To understand the features of instruction writing

SC1) I can discuss the features of a set of instructions

SC2) I can list the features of a set of instructions

SC3)  I can identify the features of a set of instruction writing

 For the second part of this lesson, we are going to be looking at instruction writing. Watch the video below on the features of a set of instructions.

LO: To understand how to read and interpret a pictogram

SC1: I can interpret a pictogram

SC2: I can draw a pictogram

SC3: I can solve pictogram problems


Here is the tutorial for today’s maths learning












12:15- 1:15


1:15 - 2:00


LO: To learn about different games before technology

SC1) I can use appropriate methods to research

SC2) I can discuss my findings

SC3) I can record my findings


For this lesson, we would like you to research different games that people played before technology. You will need to use your research skills to research interesting games that people played. We would like you to record your findings in your journals, in any way you feel comfortable. E.g this could be a mind map or bullet points. Please present your work neatly with colour and pictures. Each game you write down, should have the name of the game and a short description of the game. Have a look at the example below for the beginning of my mind map.

Try to be creative when writing down your games. I have discovered many interesting games – some dating back 100s of years! I look forward to seeing your research.

2:00- 2:30

Exercise – e.g. mindfulness yoga, fresh air in the garden, run up and down the stairs seeing if you can get faster every time!


Here is today’s story time on the Ice Monster with pages attached at the bottom.
