Thursday 11th February

Morning Activity

For your morning activity, choose from the following:

  1. Repeat the 180 times tables sheet from Monday
  2.  Spend 15 minutes on Hit the Button
  3. Spend 15 minutes on TT Rockstars
  4. Practise this week’s spellings

Grammar Activity

There are two short grammar activities to complete – one for Wednesday and one for Thursday. These can be printed out, answered in books or simply discussed.


Today we will revise similes, which are often used in stories (narrative) and poetry, If there is a question mark on the power point, press it to reveal the sentence. (I have had to split the power point into three pieces. Each one follows on from the previous section.)


When you write your own similes, try to make them unusual; try to think of an idea that others won't have used.

Reading Journal Activity

Each day this week, you will be given a short text followed by a comprehension.

You may either print out the appropriate answer sheet or simply write the answers in your home-learning book.

Today the comprehension is very short and is focused on specific reading skills. There is an instruction page to read first.


This week’s Maths continues our topic of fractions. Today, we will look at fractions greater than 1.


I have also included a true or false reasoning activity.

The power point will take you through each step. If you need more of a challenge, check out the problem solving activities that I have included in the list of resources for Friday 12th February.


Remember to keep up with your reading for at least 30 minutes a day. Well done to all of those pupils who are completing quizzes regularly and working towards their Spring target. It is good to see that almost every pupil is now building up points towards their target every week.


Although many children are progressing very well toward their Spring target, there are still a small group who have not yet begun this. I have checked all logins and all are working, so if you are still having problems, please contact me through Seesaw.


Thursday 11th February is the special feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes.

To find out about the story of Bernadette and The Beautiful Lady, watch the videos below. The first video is a cartoon version of the story, whilst the second shows what Lourdes looks like today.


After watching these, either complete a mindfulness colouring sheet or make the diorama. (I have purchased this for our class.) Instructions for assembling the diorama are include in the following video.
