Phonics (optional)

If you feel as though your child would benefit from continuing phonics practise, please use the links below.

Similarly, if you would like to use these activities instead of or in addition to the reading practise above, please feel free to do so.





LO: To summarise events from the story.


Listen to the beginning of 'A  Right Royal Disaster' below. Write a summary of the beginning of the story. Remember, a summary is a shortened version of what happened so far, written in your own words - it must include the main points.


Watch the first video below to help you to understand how to summarise.



  1. Listen to the beginning of the story, 'A Right Royal Disaster'.
  2. Write a summary of the beginning of the story. Once you have done this, create three of your own hashtags for the main points of story e.g. #PartyInSpace #BringCake #PoorBob

LO: To show what I know and understand about the past in different ways.


Christopher Columbus left Europe on 3rd August 1492 and arrived in America on 12th October 1492. The journey took him nearly ten weeks - that's two and a half months! (Although he did make a stop to restock his ship!).


What do you think it was like on the ship? What do you think Christopher Columbus would have been feeling? Do you think he came across any problems? Remember, he wouldn't have had all of the technology and hygiene that we do now!



  1. Watch the video below.
  2. Imagine that you are Christopher Columbus. Write your own captain's log entry of what you think it would have been like aboard the ship for all that time and how you think he felt about his discovery!
