22nd February

Welcome back to another week of home learning! I hope you had a good week off from schooling and you're ready to go today! 


Please send in your maths, English and Geography work today. 

Please be aware I am in the classroom this week and therefore replies will not be immediate. 


LO: To work out equivalent fractions

Today we are going to continue with the chapter of fractions! The maths no problem work was due to move past equivalent fractions today, but I thought it was really important that we do one more lesson on it just to ensure we have a good understanding. 

I know this is a topic that got interrupted last year due to the first lockdown. Due to this I have created videos to support you for this week. Ask your adult for a link to the video. After watching it, have a go at the problems on the worksheet. I hope the videos help you understand the work further!


LO: To answer questions on a text

This week, we are going to be reading the book ‘Pants on fire’

Today, you are going to read chapter 1 and then complete the online quiz. I will be able to see if you have done this activity!

I have been very impressed with the number of you who are engaging with these books and I hear you are loving fiction express. This makes me really happy! I hope you enjoy this book smiley


LO: To predict the outcome of a story

Have a look at the slides below – what do you think about Vietnam?

The play we will be reading is set in Vietnam, and based on one of their folk tales. These images will help you to visualise where the play is happening.

Go to the last two slides, which are from the play ‘The fly and the fool’ What do you think it will be about?

Next, have a read through the bare bones of the play.

Now you’ve listened to these bare bones, answer this question:

Who do you think the judge will believe? Why?

Next, I’ve added more details to the bare bones. Have a read!

After reading these I’d like you to answer the same question again:

Who do you think the judge will believe? Why?

Your answer may be the same, or your answer may have changed – there is no right and wrong here, its about what you THINK will happen next.


LO: To be able to locate Europe on a world map and identify some of its features.

For Geography this term, we are going to be looking at our European neighbours. Start by looking at the slides below!

We are a part of Europe – you should have learnt some interesting things about Europe from the slides! Although the UK has officially left the European Union, we are still a part of the continent of Europe! Have a go at the work underneath – you have to label the different continents, colour in Europe, and fill in the words in the correct places!


LO: What is pitch?

Last half term, we looked at sound in science. We are going to continue to build on our knowledge of pitch with the help of Ms Boyd!
