Planning and writing a story


Home learning focus

To be able to plan and write your own amazing story.

This lesson includes:

  • an introduction to planning a story

  • an overview of what authors do

  • three activities to do at home



The Nutcracker


Home learning focus

In this lesson, you’re going to create a dance inspired by the symmetry of the dancing snowflakes in The Nutcracker. A symmetrical shape is one which is the same on both sides.

This lesson includes:

  • An introduction to symmetry and asymmetry

  • Two introductory films that explore The Nutcracker

  • Three activities to do at home – all you need is a clear empty space and you can adapt the task to how big or small your space is.


Lesson 4 - Comparing time

Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides, and worksheets.

(I’ve also put the question sheet and answer sheet below.)

Don’t forget, you can watch, pause and rewind the video as you need to.
