Tuesday 9th February

Morning Activity

Spend 15 minutes on Hit the Button working on the speed of your times tables recall.

Weekly Spellings

Complete these activities below linked to this week’s spellings. Remember to watch Monday’s power point spelling presentation first if you haven’t already done so. Remember that if you can't print these out, then write down the answers in your home-learning workbooks.


This week we will complete three lessons on Reading for Pleasure from Oak Academy. After this, we will look briefly at performance poetry by trying to learn and perform a poem.


Reading Journal Activity

Each day this week, you will be given a short text followed by a comprehension. Choose an appropriate level of challenge. (Remember that one star is the most straightforward and three stars means the text and questions are more challenging.)

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


This week’s Maths continues our topic of fractions. We will be moving on to equivalent fractions. Live lessons on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday will be based on this.


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.


This week, I would like you to consider how settlements change over time and how migration can influence that change.

Please watch the power point presentation and then select at least one of the activities.

Activity One

Read about life for children who settled in Britain in the past and complete a short description of your modern day life.

Activity Two

Look at the information included above about the lives of different children in past times. Choose one of these children. Compare and contrast their life with your own modern way of living. What is different? Is anything actually the same or similar?

Activity Three

Select an appropriate level of challenge and use either the Internet or an atlas if you have one, to name the countries on the map. At various times in the past, people from these countries have settled in Britain and made their home here.
