Please also remember to complete your reading for 20 minutes a day. Once you have finished your reading book, complete an AR test using the useful links page (tree icon).

Also, please complete 10 minutes of consolidating your times tables and division facts by using the TTRockstars. The link for this is also on the useful link page (tree icon).


Yesterday, you wrote information based on the Spiderman clip below. Now you are going to write a suitable headline for your newspaper report. Keep the headline to about 7 words. Here are some examples:

Stranger flies in to save the day!

Who was that masked hero?

You may want to watch the clip again to help you think of a good headline. You will need to fast forward the clip to 16 minutes to watch the clip again, and you can watch it as many times as you like.

(This lesson has been produced by Oak Academy and is deemed suitable for classroom use in upper primary school. It contains a clip from a PG film which contains moderate violence.)

Then, you need to use the notes you used yesterday to write sentences about what happened. Use the 5 w's (who, what, where, why and when) to help you.

Who was there?

What happened?

Where did it happen?

Why did it happen?

When did it happen?

Use the shared writing checklist attached to help you write sentences to answer the questions above.

Guided Reading

Today I would like you to go back through The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Make some finger/stick puppets of the characters in the story. If you have a printer, you could print off the pictures attached and cut them out, or you can draw some for yourself. Once you have your puppets, see how well you can remember the story and act it out with your puppets. 

Maths - Reading analogue clocks

Look at the times in the worksheet below and read the time. There is a mixture of hours and half an hour times. You do not have to give the equivalent digital time, reading it in analogue time is fine. Then throughout the day read the time on your clock at home. Try and read a mixture of hourly and half hourly times.

Maths - Calculating Area

To find the area of a shape you need to multiply the length by the width. In class you have been learning your 2, 5 and 10 times tables. Using your knowledge of these you can find the area of shapes. For example, to calculate the area of this shape would be 3cm x 10cm = 30cm².






Try and calculate the areas of the shapes below using your knowledge of 2, 5 and 10 times tables.

Over learning of words

In any way you can, in chalk on the ground outside, spelt in pasta shapes, whiteboard and pen, in sand etc, copy and write the following words 5 times:
