Daily Reading- 24.04.2020

Today, I would like you to continue to read your 'Recommended Reading List' book. It would be lovely to hear from you and see what you are reading, how you are getting on with it and what the story is about. At the end of next week, I will give you a 'Book Review' template to complete on this book in the hope that you will have finished it by next Friday.  Good luck with your reading of your book! I would spend about 15-20 minutes reading this.

Alternatively, have you seen this:

David Walliams has a new book out! Have you heard about David Walliams' Elevenses? This is him reading excerpts or chapters of some parts of his most famous books. Click the picture of his new book above and you can listen to him reading some of this! This is something for all of the family to listen too- Mum, Dad, Brother and Sister. Enjoy!

In addition, below is your last '60 Second Read' for this week around the 'Fantasy Theme' attached as part of the documents- you can do this but only if you get time- please just try 1 or 2 of these activities.


If you completed the 'Children's Books Emoji Pictionary', the answers are below as well! Enjoy your reading for today...


Times Table Rockstars- 24.04.2020

This is your last chance of the week to make our TTRS leaderboard which I will place onto the website over the weekend. I am checking all of your progress on the system and will be updating your times tables to work on, making sure you can access all of them.  Next week, we will look at setting up interactive battles for you all to take part in to add some additional competition for everyone. Enjoy learning!


Spelling Pattern to Learn- 24.04.2020

The spelling pattern you learnt on Monday was  the / / ɪ sound spelt y elsewhere than at the end of words. Today, I would like you to go onto 'Spelling Frame' (website attached below) and complete the 'Practice/ Test' part of this webpage. Each week, you should fall into this pattern, completing the other activities on the Monday, leaving the 'Practice/ Test' part until the Friday. There are a couple of other websites below so that you can continue to practise this spelling pattern today. Good luck!

Maths Learning- 24.04.2020

Adding decimals with a different number of decimal places

Click the picture above and this will take you to your Maths learning for Friday. We have practised adding and subtracting decimals with the same number of decimal places. Today, you will be adding decimals with different numbers of decimal places. Once you have clicked the link, go to:

Summer Term – Week 2 (w/c 27th April)- Lesson 3- Adding decimals with a different number of decimal places

Watch the video and then try the questions (attached below). You can self-mark the answers or get your parents to mark them for you. Continue to play our decimal games to help you with your understanding (also attached). Good luck!

English Learning- 24.04.2020

For the final time this week, we are going to finish our learning off about 'poetry'. Next week, we will move onto a new topic.

Look at the resources below. They focus on vehicles and modes of transport and make them into 'poems'.  Have a read of these to gain some inspiration for writing a poem!

Eventhough the ideas page says 'do this with the class/ complete this as a class', many of the activities you could do yourself...

Part of the reason for me doing this is today, I was thinking about 'Lockdown'. My bike has not been out of my shed for a year and since 'Lockdown', I have used it at least twice a week. This situation is making us think about the transport we need and what we require!  Have a try but I am sure, from the resources, you can see what I am getting at!

Better still, why not have a try at performing your poem today and sending me the video to place on our website! Good luck Penguins!

Afternoon Learning- Physical Education, Sport and Physical Activity (24.04.2020)

Today, I have included (if you click the picture above) Lesson 3 from a company called 'IG Sports Coaching'. I really enjoy watching their 'Remote Learning' lessons and think they are fun activities to do if you have some really sporty children! In addition, I have updated the 'Remote PE Learning' area for the Penguins Class, with some interesting resources.

Currently, I am addicted to an application called 'Strava' on my phone. Perhaps you could download this for your child and go out for a walk, run or cycle (there are a lot of added benefits to the application as it helps them with their Maths). It looks similar to the image below:


Enjoy the weekend Penguins- god bless and stay safe!
