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


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


Remember that we are adding WAGOLLs (What A Good One Looks Like) as we go along in the classroom, so have a look at ours, so that you know what is expected.

English (SEND IN)

LO: To edit writing.

In this lesson, you will practice spellings, look at editing and improving a piece of writing before editing and improving your own outcome from this part of the unit.


If you didn’t finish your writing yesterday, then you need to finish that first.  If you are struggling try the ‘Mrs. Holdaway’s Group’ task.



  1. Complete the spelling activity.  Write which word you think is spelled correctly each time, then check your answer.
  2. Watch how the teacher checks the first thing we were trying to include: ambitious adjectives.  Then pause the video and check your own writing from yesterday.  To help, find your nouns and see which ones you have added an adjective to or not.  Remember that they don’t all need one.   
  3. Repeat for verbs – why not shade over the verbs in a coloured pencil to help you find them first.  Verbs = doing or being words.
  4. Repeat for complex sentences.  Which parts have a verb but don’t make sense on their own?  Did you include some? 

Tick the table shown: I’ve screen shotted it and attached it in a Word document below.     

This is how Ellie edited hers ......

Mrs. Holdaway’s Group

Follow the lesson through, but when she asks you to check adjectives do ‘Task 1’ on the worksheet below, verbs do ‘Task 2’ and complex sentences do ‘Task 3’.

Reading (SEND IN)


  1. Complete ‘Section 3’ of the 2016 Sample KS2 SATs Paper: The Lost World.
  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 Q29, Q36; however, I will feedback specifically on these also: very long explanations in the mark scheme!

Maths (SEND IN)

Maths No Problem

LO: To be able to convert between litres and millilitres.

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.  Read through how our friends worked through the task.


  1. Journal: calculate the total volume.  Show your conversions clearly, before adding the volumes together. 
  2. Worksheet 5.  Complete Q1 – 4 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: Ordering Measurements.

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 order units of measurement using your converting units skills.


  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.

‘Catch Up’

Use this time to catch up with any work you didn’t get a chance to do throughout the week,  do some extra practice with something you found challenging or to investigate an area you found interesting.



And BREATH!  Take some time to feel proud of yourself and recognise how well you have done.  Choose an activity that you love doing, like colouring, drawing, playing a game, cooking or reading and ENJOY IT.  We are ALL proud of you.  You really deserve this time for you!
