Welcome to the end of another week of Home Learning


I hope to see most of you later, for our second guided reading session. I hope you completed the follow up activity yesterday.


Here are the details:


Join Zoom Meeting


Meeting ID: 940 4548 1504

Passcode: fp0Fki


It starts at 1.30pm today.



As always thank you for sending me all of your work. If you haven't watched Connor's or Harrison's stop motion videos I recommend you have a look.


Hit the Button


Our times tables test later could be on anything so use this time on Hit the Button to practice the times tables you feel you need to practise the most.


Here is the link:


Use your plan to draft your new wishing tale.


Try to give yourself between 30 – 45 minutes. Aim to have as few distractions as possible during this time. If you want to listen to music then try to make it instrumental.


Look at the challenges, before you begin:

  • Vocabulary
  • Outside/ Inside – create atmosphere
  • Speech


Once you have completed your work, read through and make any final corrections.


Don’t forget to send me your finished stories.



Times Tables Test


Find some way to time yourself. Now answer the 36 questions from the sheet below. Although I want you to complete this activity quickly it is more important that you get them all right. So every wrong answer adds 10 seconds. I’d like to know how you did so email your time. Remember if you finished in 5 minutes and got 2 wrong, your time would be 5 minutes and 20 seconds – that’s 2 lots of ten seconds for each wrong answer.


I know this is on all the times tables but how did your result compare to last week. Were you quicker? Did you get more correct? Did you get the last question correct?



Start todays lesson with five in five.

Please make sure that you attempt up to question 5.


Advice – When trying to find a fraction of an amount, you divide by the denominator and then multiply your answer by the numerator.


So in the following question:  2/3 of 24  


24 ÷ 3 = 8

8 x 2 =16


Now use this method to solve following questions.


Question 1 – In question 1 you will only need to divide by the denominator as the numerators are 1.


Question 2 – Take the 60g and divide it by 5. In part b) do the same but this time multiply by the numerator.


Question 3 – The first part of each question has a numerator of 1, so you only need to divide. The second question has a numerator so you will need to multiply by this.


Question 4 – Solve using the advice and then match.


Question 5 – Solve using the advice and then place in the correct circle.


If you feel confident then you can attempt questions 6 and 7.

Have a go at these, they are a lot tougher but you can do it.

Spelling Test – Spelling Shed


So there is a spelling test today. If possible find another person to test you on your able words from Monday. Let me know how you do.


If it is not convenient for someone else to test you then have at least 3 more games on spelling shed so that you really know those words.
