Happy Monday Discoverers, 

How was your weekend in the not-so-sunny weather? I hope that you managed to find some fun activities to keep you entertained.

We are at the beginning of a new week, and in English, we are starting something new. 

Over the coming weeks, we are going to be focusing on a beautiful book, called ‘Rain Before Rainbows’ by Smriti Halls. 

Here are the teachers of Sleights, reading the book to you.


Today, I would simply like you to listen to this story, and think about what you like about it. 

You could write comments about how it makes you feel, or what it makes you think about. Or you could even read the book yourself, and use expression to show your feelings. 


In Maths this week, we are going to be focusing on money. Today, I have written some questions for you. I would like you to convert the amounts of pence, into pounds. 

I have shown you how to do this in the first example. 

As there are 100p in £1.00, whenever you convert pence into pounds, you simply divide the amount by 100, and this gives you your answer. 

Here is the answer from Friday’s question also. 


We are continuing with science as our foundation subject this week. There is such much more about plants that we can learn. 

Today, we are going to be learning how to classify and group plants, and we are going to focus particularly on separating ones that have seeds, and ones that don’t. 

I would like you to watch this video firstly: 

Now, you could use the internet to research different plants, or go for a walk, or even into your garden if you have any, and observe the different plants that you see. 

Then, you can draw or write the plants into two categories, one for plants with seeds, and one for plants without seeds. 

Here are some plants without seeds to get your started:


Have a great day everybody,

Mrs Taylor
