Wednesday 29th April

Word of the day:   undeniably


- Find out what it means and write the definition in your own words!  
- What is its word class?  

- How many syllables does it have (clap each syllable to help you)?

- Make a list of synonyms and antonyms  

- Can you use it in an interesting sentence? 

Are you able to use it, appropriately, when you are speaking or in any of your writing opportunities?  


0900 - 0930 - Reading 

Today's reading challenge.. 

Decide which 'heat level' is right for you...challenge yourself like you would do in school! Think, 'What would my teacher give me at school?' 

Your options for today are...

Mild - Purple 7 Question and Answers 

Spicy - Peach 7 Question and Answers 

Hot - Baking a cake!


0930 - 1030 - Maths

Today as our starter we are practising a skill we have previously worked on, ordering decimals. Follow the link below, then click on options which can be found underneath the picture. Select one of the decimal ordering activities. Decimal tenths is the easiest and as the name suggests tricky decimals are the trickiest. You can also select how long you wish to work on a challenge. How about trying to see how many you can complete in one minute and then try again for one minute, can you beat your own score.


Then for the main part of our Maths lesson we are going to start a new block of learning which focuses on money. It starts off with a review of prior learning and then moves on. Summer, Term, Week  2, Lesson 3 (Pounds and Pence)


Next week, we would like to give some money word problems as starters each day and we would like YOU to write the problems. They all need to be about money (add, subtract, change, one step or two step) An example would be ' I bought three pens for 38p and gave the shopkeeper £5, how much change did I get?' Send a problem for everyone to answer to Mrs Lee (via the office).


1030 - 1100 - Break


1100 - 1130 - Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar

Giving reasons: cause and effect part 2 - look at the document below for further instructions! 


1130 - 1215 - English


Listen to Chapter 3 – Whiter than White again but focusing on Miss Root. 


Task 1: As you listen to the story, think about:  

  1. Her name 
  2. Her appearance (what they look like) 
  3. Her personality 
  4. Where she live 
  5. Her special powers, skills or talents 
  6. How old she is 
  7. How she is linked to the other characters 

Write your answers in note form/bullet points. This will help you when writing your paragraph tomorrow. I chose to do mine in notes on a mind map. Look below at my example! I haven’t included everything!  

Next, use the notes you have made to draw Miss Root - how detailed can you make it?


Why not describe Miss Root to someone else in your family or down the phone and challenge them to draw her? Compare your drawings! If your description was spot on, they should look similar if not the same!  Some of you have been 'zooming' or video calling one another - this could be something you share! 


1215 - 1315 - Lunch


1315 - Enquiry

Someone has made an exciting archaeological discovery at the bottom of their garden or in the local park. It is a skull … a skull belonging to a mysterious, unidentified animal. Imagine the shape of the skull. Was it a carnivore, herbivore or omnivore? How can we tell from the type of teeth your mystery animal has? Use what you have learnt in your previous lesson to help you. You will be writing about this animal in a newspaper article tomorrow.
