The Week Ahead in Brancaster Class ~ 28th September 2020

Hi everyone.

I hope this blog reaches you well and looking forward to a brand new week of learning!

Here is what we will be covering this week….


This week in maths we will be learning to read and write Roman numerals. Use this Oak Academy lesson to help you with your knowledge and understanding.


We will also continue to explore 4 digit numbers. We will be finding 1000 less and 1000 more and comparing numbers.

Use these lessons to help you.




Here are our spelling words for this week.


This week we will be starting to explore adventure stories. Do you know what an adventure story is? Do you know any stories that have an adventure in them? Watch this short video https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zx339j6/articles/zgthrwx

Can you write a story that contains an adventure? – this will be your cold task (your ‘have a go’ story).

Look and read our model text – The Journey to the Lonely Mountain. What do you think of the text? What do you like about it? What do you dislike? Does it remind you of another story you have read? Do you have any questions about the text?

Begin to learn our model text – can you think of any actions to help you to remember the story?



This week we will explore magnetic forces.

Watch this lesson to discover what magnets are – https://teachers.thenational.academy/lessons/what-are-magnets-cgvkee

Watch this lesson to explore how we know if a material is magnetic or not – https://teachers.thenational.academy/lessons/how-can-we-tell-if-a-material-is-magnetic-or-not-cmtpar

Watch this short clip to see how magnets are used in a scrapyard.




This week we will be exploring rivers. What is a river and where do they come from? Can you name any of the rivers in the UK? Can you name the river that we have here in King’s Lynn?

Watch and complete this lesson.

When you have finished, can you name some of the rivers in the UK? Can you find these on a map? Which rivers would you need to cross if you were travelling from Land’s End to John O’Groats?



I hope this all helps, please make sure you contact me through the school office or via email – [email protected] if there is anything I can do to help.

Stay safe and well

Mrs Emery
