Three tasks to send in today: English, Maths and Geography.  


  • Read the tasks carefully, so you have completed the task fully.
  • Send in by email the tasks that have (SEND IN) next to them

We are uploading our WAGOLLs (What A Good One Looks Like) that we are completing in the classroom, so that you have an example of how to complete the tasks. 


Well done to the child below, who really took pride in their presentation and handwriting in the English task on Monday.  This is the standard that we are still looking for in your work.  WAGOLL = What A Good One Looks Like

English (SEND IN)

LO: To write prepositional phrases.

In this lesson, you will correct punctuation and grammar in a sentence level activity, revise prepositional phrases and plan prepositional phrases to be used in their own writing later in the unit.


  1. Complete the sentence level work: write the sentence out and try and find the punctuation mistakes, before listening to the answer.  Remember that ‘clarify’ means make clear.  Challenge – can you underline the main clause?
  2. Prepositional phrases.  Remember that a subject is the person or thing carrying out the verb and the object is the person or thing being affected by the verb.

      Subject                        object

The boy kicked the ball.


There is lots of grammar information in this section, so you may want to make notes about the key aspects as you listen or spend some time researching aspects for confidence. 

   3. Add a prepositional phrase to each section of your plan.  You will need to write one for each of       

       the images: 5 in total. 

   4. Add Miss. Smith’s phrases to your plan.

Extension:  write another prepositional phrase that you could have used for each image, so you have total of 10 altogether.



  1. Complete ‘Section 1’ of the 2016 Sample KS2 SATs Paper: Space Tourism.  The file was too large to upload the whole reading booklet, so I have screen shotted the first section onto a Word document today.
  2. Once you have answered, check the mark scheme – don’t look first: it doesn’t help you learn.  Try and work out what marks you would get for Q3, Q9 and Q14; however, I will feedback specifically on these.

Maths (SEND IN)


Maths No Problem

LO: To be able to convert between metres. And kilometres.

Look at the ‘In Focus’ task and follow the thoughts and questions underneath through.  Jot down your thoughts and any workings as you work through – how did my friend go wrong?  Read through how our friends worked through the task.


  1. Journal: justify whether the lengths are equal or not. 
  2. Worksheet 3.  Complete Q1 – 3 at least. Remember to use the conversion chart to support your calculations: Watch the Corbet Maths videos to help you remember the relationships if you need to.

​​​​​​​Extension:  challenge question

Mrs. Holdaway’s Group

LO: Converting Length Part 2.

Have a go at the intro quiz – can you get 6 out of 6?

Next watch the video and work through the lesson, where you will explore and use the relationship between metres and centimetres..


  1. Complete the worksheet.  Either write the questions and answers on a sheet of paper, or you can download the worksheet by clicking on the download symbol which is just above the worksheet on the right hand side.
  2. Now have a go at the exit quiz.


LO: To be able to identify and locate the counties of the United Kingdom.

Read through the slideshow, paying particular attention to the link between a county and a council and the council’s role. Use the clues to identify the counties: don’t peek – actually work it out before moving on.


  1. Choose one of the tasks to complete:
    1. Task 1 is the easy task, which I would only expect a few children to complete.  In this task you will need to use a map of the UK, which shows counties, to answer the questions true or false.
    2. Task 2 is the main task.  You will need to use the clues given to name the counties.  The easiest way for you to do this will be to just write a list – I’ve shown an example.  It is a Word document, so you could just type straight on.  If you get stuck with any, use an internet map to help. 


In this lesson, you will recap the rules associated with adding the suffix -ous, look at other words with the same suffix and learn a spelling practice strategy. The 10 spelling words set in the previous lesson will be revisited and tested.
