Well done on another week of lockdown learning.  The work you have been sending me continues to make me smile with the effort and imagination you put into each activity.  You should be proud of yourselves!


Today, please send in your Maths and Reading



LO: to add unlike fractions to make numbers greater than 1


Today’s Maths is the next step in adding unlike fractions.  You will using the methods you have learnt so far to make answers which are greater than 1 eg 2 ½.  To help you with today’s work, remember the skills you learnt yesterday about adding fractions with different denominators (ie making them both have the same denominator).  Please do the In Focus task and then, as previous lessons, take your time in going through the Let’s Learn so you have a solid understanding.  Remember, when you are finding equivalent fractions you need to find a common multiple to make both denominators the same.  As usual, I’ve left the answers for you in Guided Practice.  Make sure that you are working through the questions and understanding how to work them out – don’t just look at the answers.  This won’t help you when you come to completing the two worksheets.   As yesterday, your answers need to be in the simplest form (a lesson from last week).  Don’t forget to have a go at the challenge.  Please email your Maths work to me today.


Being Super – Chapter Five


If you haven’t read the previous chapters, you will need to catch up before starting chapter five.


Today, I would like you to read the final chapter of Being Super, cast your vote as to what will happen next, complete the quiz and then answer the following questions (reading domain 2g: Identify/explain how meaning is enhanced through choice of words and phrases)


  • But he was under no illusions – with half the local police in Craven’s pay, they were on their own.  What does this sentence mean? Explain what the illusions might have been.
  • Do you know what ‘white noise’ is? Find out.
  • What does Craven mean when he says, “This is my turf”? Go back to the chapter to work out what he means.


Email me your answers for today's Reading activity.


LO: to develop a rich understanding of words


In this lesson, you will be introduced to new vocabulary, identify word pairs and synonyms and apply the vocabulary in sentences.  At the end of the lesson, you will be asked to write persuasive sentences using some of the new vocabulary you have been introduced to.  Please email me your notes and three of the sentences that you have written to show that you have engaged in the lesson and completed the task.

‘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 practise with something you found challenging or to investigate an area you found interesting.
