This week the literacy work is based on the story The Giant Jam Sandwich. You probably don’t have this book! It’s a fabulous story so listen to it by following this link:


Write a few sentences about what happened in the town of Itching Down. What did they decide to do about it?

Read the ‘How to Make a Jam Sandwich’ PowerPoint. Now sequence the pictures.

Write a few instructions on how to make a jam sandwich.

Follow your instructions and make a jam sandwich.

Play a list memory game. “I made a giant sandwich and I put … on it.” Go around each person listing what others have already said and adding an extra ingredient on each time. For example, I made a giant sandwich and I put ham on it. I made a giant sandwich and I put ham and cucumber on it. I made a giant sandwich and I put ham, cucumber and cheese on it. Etc. How long can the list of ingredients get before you forget one?

Topic Work:  SANDWICHES 

Activity 1

Make your own bread.

Activity 2


Make your own butter.

Buy some creamy milk/single cream. Put a little into an empty lidded container with a pinch of salt (we have used an empty 1 pint milk bottle with a handle in the past – it worked well).

Shake vigorously for quite some time. The cream curdles and splits and the butter will form – when I’ve done this in class I played music and we shook it to the beat. We passed it around every 30 seconds or so because it’s hard to keep it going for a long time.

Good luck and happy churning!

Activity 3

Have a look at the news report to learn a little about wasps. Parents are to read this – it’s not an easy text, it has plenty of challenging words but it’s quite interesting.

Activity 4

Have a look at the pictures of wasps and bumble bees and see if you can spot any differences or similarities. Can you find out more about them?

Activity 5

Sing along with this silly Bumble Bee song:
