08:45 - 09:00 - Word of the Day


What does it mean? 

Can you think of synonyms and antonyms? 

What word class does it belong to: adjectives, verbs, nouns or adverbs? 

How many syllables does the word have? 

Can you include it in a sentence? Remember capital letters and punctuation. 


09:00 - 09:30 - Reading 

Deep Sea Explorers 

Read the text all about some special people who wanted to explore the deep sea! 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. 


09:30 - 09:50 - SPaG

Do you remember PRONOUNS from your learning last week? A pronoun is a word that takes the place of a noun. There are five different types of pronouns. Can you remember their names? Work through the Pronouns – Questions (in Learning Resources). If you have log-in details for Lexia and Spellzone, spend 5 or 10 minutes working through them.  


09:50 - 10:30 - Zoom Call


10:30 - 10:45 - Break Time

Have a drink, exercise or get some fresh air if you can!


10:45 - 11:30 - Maths

Multiplying a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number 

Yesterday’s recap lesson should help you with today’s work. You are using the column multiplication method but unlike yesterday, you will need to regroup (carry over). Take a look at the video below and then have a go at the Maths Worksheet. 


Finished? Would you like a challenge?  

Have a go at working out the Day 4 Challenge. The document is in the learning resources. 


11:30 - 12:30 - English

You are going to practise adding more detail to your ideas. Read Lesson 4. Watch the Oak Academy video to find out more about EXPANDED NOUN PHRASES. The video focuses on animals but we can still use the skills to describe the Ella scene. Watch the video until 15m 40sec.


Work through the Expanded Noun Phrases powerpoint and complete the writing practices. 


12:30 - 13:30 - Lunch Time


Afternoon - Wider Curriculum 


Last week, you reflected on the Golden Rule.  This rule is important to lots of people who do and do not belong to religious groups. Many religions have rules which they believe were given to them by God. For example many Jews believe the rules in the Torah (their holy book) were given by God. Some of these rules are known as the Ten Commandments. You are going to watch videos about the ten Commandments (in Learning Resources), discuss them and finally rank them in order of importance.  Read the RE Lesson 2 to find out more.
