Two tasks to send in today: English and Maths.  Remember to send in all parts of the task and read the tasks and questions carefully.

I am having a go at colour coding the work today – so that it is easier for some of you to find your work, without having to read everything.

The main explanations and tasks are in black. 

If there is an easier option for the main task, this will be in green.

‘Mrs. Holdaway’s Group’ work is now in BLUE.

If there is no green or blue then it is just the one task available and everyone needs to do that.

9:00 - 10:00 English (SEND IN)

LO: To explore the functions of fronted adverbials.

Tasks in the lesson:

  1. Revise your understanding of fronted adverbials with the teacher.  Write the definition on the worksheet.
  2. Circle the fronted adverbials on your worksheet and write whether they are TIME, MANNER or PLACE.  Decide before you are given the answer by the teacher!
  3. Sort the fronted adverbials into the table on the worksheet. 
  4. Write your own sentences with fronted adverbials.

All of the above activities are discussed within the lesson.  The worksheet should be filled in throughout the lesson.

Mrs. Holdaway’s Group

Your task is as above; however your worksheet has more support within it. 

10:00 - 10:45 Reading

LO: To engage with the text and main character.

In this lesson you will be introduced to the short story we will be studying in this unit and the author. We will read the first part of the story and reflect upon the main character's behaviour, interests and relationships. Although you are not sending your work to me today, you do need to do it and keep your work, as it will be used in the following lessons.


  1. Work through the lesson.
  2. Create the mind map about Kevin as you work through – as the teacher shows you.  Add any extra information that you think of also, as well as the teacher’s ideas.
  3. Write down the answers to the questions asked through the video.

11:00 - 12:00 Maths No Problem (SEND IN)

LO:  To convert fractions into percentages.

Look at the ‘In Focus’ picture and follow the questions underneath through.  Think about each score as a fraction and then convert this into a percentage.  What do you need to convert the denominator to make this easy?  100!  Why – percentage means ‘out of 100’.


  1. Complete the journal– remember to explain your thinking.  Show each score clearly as a fraction and show how you have converted it to then be able to change it to a percentage easily.  Remember to use the Let’s Learn to help you.
  2. Complete the guided practice – remember to send evidence in that you have completed these questions.
  3. Worksheet.  Complete Q1 and 2 at least. 

Extension:  challenge question

If you are struggling complete the lesson in the link below instead:

LO: Recognising decimal tenths (Part 2)


  1. Have a go at the intro quiz.
  2. Watch the video and work through the lesson, where you will describe how full a container is using decimal tenths.
  3. Complete the ‘Independent Task’.  No need to print the slides out: just answer on paper.

1:00 - 2:00 PSHE

Dreams & Goals

PSHE today is thinking out something which we have achieved, but along the way we found tricky. Often, the successes we are most proud of are the ones which we have really had to work hard at to get there. To help you with this, think about something that you are most proud of. How did you achieve this? Who helped you? It might be related to our new lockdown learning, securing a place in a sports team, having success in a dancing examination, learning a new skill etc. There is a link to the worksheet, which you would have completed in Mrs Entwistle’s PSHE lesson.
