Good morning, everyone! I hope that both parents and children will find the new format of our home-learning easier to follow. Tasks will be given for each day, along with the resources you will need to complete them.

Morning Activity

Complete the 180 Times Tables sheet below. (If you can't print it off, then jot down the answers as quickly as possible in your home-learning workbooks.)

Weekly Spellings

Your power point presentation and spelling activities are attached below.

Watch the presentation today, complete the activities during the week, then ask an adult to test you on Friday.


Today's English activity is all about comparing and contrasting texts with similar plots, themes and ideas.

If you did not manage to watch the video of 'Winter's Child'last week, please use the link below to do so.

After this, either watch or read a version of 'The Snow Queen'  (I have suggested links below but you may have access to other versions - just check that it is based on the Hans Christian Anderson Tale) or watch ' The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe' or 'Frozen'.

Once you have done this, complete the comparison sheet attached below. Again, if you cannot print this out, simply write your ideas in your home-learning book.


Today's work is all the use of partitioning when multiplying. The power point will take you through each step. This is useful even if you feel confident with multiplying,as it will help you be flexible in your methods and your thinking.


I have also included a quick starter and a true or false reasoning activity.


Please make sure that you keep up the good work with your reading. Spend at least half an hour on this and try to complete a quiz this week. Well done to those who are working to met their Spring target - five children in the class are already over 10% and one is over 70%!


I would like you to continue work on our local artists of the recent past: LS Lowry, who painted scenes of life in Salford, Helen Bradley, who painted her friends and family in Oldham and our own George Mainwaring, who painted scenes from his childhood in Rochdale.


Below I have attached details of a web site linked to each of these artists. Each web site includes examples of their pictures, along with lots information about their lives.


Choose one of these artists and prepare an information text about them. This can be done in a number of different ways:

1. You could make a fact file about your chosen artist in your home-learning book (this may be illustrated if you wish).

2.You may produce a power point about your chosen artist.

3. You might decide to make an information poster about your artist and their life.


Of course, you may have other ideas too. I would love to see the finished results on Seesaw and I am sure that those in school will share their work too.
