Wednesday 10th June

Good morning!  


We will allot time on Friday for completing the challenge outcome. Throughout the week, we will be participating in learning which should help us when we get to the outcome day. We are aspiring, persevering, reflective learners, so we will be doing some work in our reflective journal throughout the week. To make sure you know which lessons are linked to our weekly challenge, we will mark the lesson with a  and AYOC to show it is part of The year of change activities.  


Please send us your work from the previous learning if you haven’t done so already. Have a good day! 





Wake up Shake up – please use this time to exercise.  

There are lots of different options, here are a few you could choose from: 

Joe Wicks - 

Cosmic yoga -  

Just dance -  

You could use this time to take a walk/bike ride as your daily exercise.  



Your child should start their phonics session by watching a video which introduces a new sound. The video can be found here:  

If the link doesn't work try clicking on this link and then click on either the YouTube link or the Facebook link on the first line.  

The videos are only streamed at certain times of the day and are set depending. The times are:  

  • Set 1 Speed Sounds at 9.30am  

  • Set 2 Speed Sounds at 10.00am  

  • Set 3 Speed Sounds at 10.30am  

(It may be better to do mental maths and problem solving first and come back to phonics, if your video is at a later time) 

In terms of the reading section of the phonics lesson, Oxford Owl are making all the phonics books available online as ebooks. Here is the link  

Once you’ve clicked on the link then click on ebooks and then you need to register but it is completely free. Once registered you can then open all the ebooks and choose the correct banded level for your child.  

This means you do not need to look at the RWI books on the school website and we will not be adding any further books there.   

Guided reading:  

If your child is not in a phonics group and instead does guided reading, please find newly uploaded texts on the Butterflies home learning page here:, please find today’s timetable and the text will be there.

LO: to compare Victorian toys with modern toys. 

SC1: I can identify the different materials they are made from 

SC2: I can identify similarities between the toys. 

SC3: I can identify differences between the toys. 

Today we are going to look at Victorian toys.  


Victorian toys were usually made from wood, metal and paper. Can you remember the types of materials your toys are made form? 

The toys that Victorian children had depended on how much money their family had.  


Girls and boys also played with different toys. 


Victorian children played outdoor and board games as well. 


Lots of toys that were popular in Victorian times are still popular today. However, the material the toys are made from are very different. Some of these Victorian toys may have had sharp edges but nowadays there are strict rules that toy manufacturers must follow to make sure all toys are safe. 

Have a look at these dolls, one is a Victorian doll made of china and the other is a modern doll made of plastic. Can you see any other similarities or differences? What are their clothes like? Does the Victorian doll move her arms like the modern doll if she is made of china? 


Can you research/find any other Victorian toys and compare them to their modern-day equivalent? What are they made from? Do they have moving parts? Here are some ideas to start you off: diablos, cars, trains and tea sets. Here are some pictures of diablos.  


Challenge: make your own Thaumatrope!
