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


Remember our colour coding:

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 write a narrative scene.

In today’s lesson, you will need your planning from the last two days.  This will help you to come up with some ideas for your writing. Make sure you have it to hand. KEEP REPLAYING the video over and over to get inspiration for the next sentence.  Look carefully: what is happening? what can you see? where are the characters? what would you be able to hear? Remember you are writing it in story style. 


  1. Work through the sentence activity: relative clauses.
  2. Use the worksheet below to help you structure your ‘free writing’.  Write your sentences next to each image using the planning table for those images to help you come up with sentence ideas. 

Extension:  Remember all the great aspects we included in our writing last week: extended noun phrases, prepositional phrases, complex sentences.  Check you have included these in your writing today.

Well done Bianca!  A sent in piece of work, that I'm sure you'll agree is a WAGOLL:

I’m sure a lot of you may want support with this activity, so try the worksheet below, which has more support with ideas and some helpful sentence starts.

An example WAGOLL for this group: well done Joshua!

10:00 – 10:45  READING

LO: To consider the author’s use of language and further understand the main character.

Today you will read the next part of the story, considering the author's use of language. We will then keep reading and reflect upon what we can infer about Kevin, the main character.


  1. Follow the lesson through, adding to your mind map about Kevin as you go.  Write down answers to questions she asks you to.

MATHS 11:00 - 12:00

Maths No Problem

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

1:00 – 2:00 Geography (SEND IN)

LO: To be able to locate and identify towns and cities in the UK.

In this lesson you will be thinking about the differences between a town and a city as well as locating and naming the major cities within the UK.  


Read the slideshow through, then complete one of the tasks below.  Use an online map to help you find the locations of each city.  

If you are struggling, complete the easiest worksheet, which has less cities to mark. 

2:00 – 2:30 SPELLING

In this lesson, you will explore the rules associated with adding the suffix -ial. 10 spelling words will be explained and set to learn.

2:30 – 3:00 FRENCH

This week we will begin to access the resources from the languages scheme that we use in school, as they are producing some ‘Lockdown lessons’.  Open the PowerPoint and click on ‘slide show’ from beginning.  You then click on ‘Click Here to Start the Lesson’ and it will automatically connect you to the internet to see the video of Emilie, who will lead you through the learning. 


If you click on the ‘Key Words’ again it will take you online, where you will be able to click on the key words to hear them being said, so that you can practise.


Bon chance!
