Spelling Challenge

Ask an adult or a sibling to read out your Week 1 spelling words to you. Write them into your book. Spend some time this week practising your Week 2 Spellings. Spellings can be found in Learning Resources.



Fidget Spinners 

Read the text all about fidget spinners! The text has been spilt into different subheadings to make it easier to find information. Answer the questions on the sheet. It might be helpful to underline key words in the questions to remind you of what to look for. 



7 Times Table and Division Facts 

Practice counting forwards and backwards in 7s. Can you quiz yourself on the 7 times tables? Can you convert those multiplications into divisions? Take a look at this video to practice the inverse operation. There is a quiz at the beginning followed by a video. Grab a piece of paper and a pencil to work your answers out.


Have a go at the White Rose worksheet. Remember, when you multiply by 10, you are making the number 10 times bigger. On a place value grid, you can move the digits one space to the left to show the number getting 10 times bigger. 


Finished? Would you like a challenge? Have a go at working out the first challenge called 'Row of coins'. The document is in the learning resources.


Maths 3 Minute Times Tables Challenge

Have a go at the 3 minute times table challenge, just like we do in class. Make sure you practice your 11 times table before you have a go at the first worksheet. There are 3 sheets in the document below, they are to be completed on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, just as we do in school.




Conjunctions are used to join ideas in a sentence. They are mostly used to give more information or provide cause/reason. Work through the Time Conjunctions – Presentation powerpoint. Then complete the questions in the mini-test.



Remember, our writing by the end of this week will focus on how the way we listen to music has changed over time. We could use the time connectives shown here. However, our writing will begin to sound a bit like a list e.g. First, there was the phonograph. Then there was the gramophone. Next, there was ... This does not provide much information or interest for the reader. We could use FRONTED ADVERBIALS to provide more information about HOW, WHEN and WHERE events have taken place. Because we are focusing on music listening over time, which type of fronted adverbial do you think would be most helpful to us? Discuss and give your reasons to someone else. The answer is on your Lesson Plan (in Learning Resources).


Wider Curriculum


Children and young people aged between 5 – 18 years should be aiming for an average of 60 minutes of exercise every day. Taking part in a variety of types and intensities of physical activity across the week will develop movement skills, muscles and bones! Reduce the time spent sitting or lying down and break up long periods of not moving with some activity.  


Change 4 Life  

Here are some 10 minute shake up games that you could try at home! Choose your favourite Disney character and see what activities they have in store for you. 


Joe Wicks 

Have a go at this Spiderman workout created by Joe Wicks. Can you keep up with him? 


Just Dance Kids 

Get your feet tapping, your hands shaking and your body moving with this Despicable Me dance! See if you can remember any of the dance moves for the song for the rest of the week! 


Stay active, stay healthy and stay happy!
