Good Morning

Good morning Ash Class. It is important that you fit your learning into a time table which works best for you, but below is our suggested format for you. Please remember if you have any problems with today's work to send Miss Bridges and Mrs Causer an email at We would also love to see photographs of your work today. Good luck with your challenges.

Today is Safer Internet Day! Click the picture below to load the virtual assembly. Consider- Should we trust everything we see online?


Practise staying safe online, and complete some of these activities: 


Starter: To round numbers to the nearest 100:

Have a look at the problems below. Can you find the number which is the odd one out using your understanding of rounding to the nearest 100? Write a sentence to explain it. 


Main: To solve problems using my knowledge of Roman Numerals. 



Yesterday, you looked at the Roman Numeral number system with Mrs Causer. Remind yourself of these by completing the online lesson with Oak Academy. Click here. 

Watch the video from 5:00. 


Activity: Use what you have learnt, to solve these problems: 



Starter: To use standard English (was/were did/done)

Main: To be able to explain something in detail

Read the Snoozeatron text below. As you read, think about the image you are getting in your head.

Draw a picture of the snoozeatron based on what you have read. You could challenge yourself by drawing it like a comic strip, showing each step. 

Then watch the Soozeatron video- how effective do you think the explanation was? Did they include enough details? 

The Snoozatron - Cracking Contraptions - Wallace and Gromit

Now, watch the next cracking contraption. Verbally practise explaining how it works to somebody in your house- make sure you include lots of detail. You could even ask them to draw it from your description to see if you should have added more detail. 

You could film your explanation and send it to us too.

Guided Reading 

LO: To explore strategies for reading unknown words. 


As this text is non-fiction, we will be reading lots of scientific vocabulary.


What would you do if you came across a word that we were unable to read?


Watch the video with Miss Bridges to discuss the strategies you could use.


Now have a go at reading these words. Do yo know what they mean? Write the definitions next to the words. 






Click the picture below to launch the BBC website which will introduce the topic of reading unknown words. 

Now watch the video with Miss Bridges to focus on today's vocabulary.
