Home Learning

Week beginning 25th May- Half Term

I will not be setting any work this half term to give you and your children a well deserved break. If you wish to, please continue to practise your times tables (TTRockstars), taking your Accelerated Reader quizzes and finishing off any work from previous weeks.  Thank you to Mrs Williams who has recommended Why not give it a go? Best wishes to you all and take care. 

Week beginning 18th May 2020

I hope you are all well and keeping up with your home learning. Please continue practising your times tables, reading quizzes and spellings. 


Spelling - look at the list of words from last week. Did you find out:

1). if the root word ends with a y, you change it to an i then add ly?

2). if a word ends in le, you change it to ly?

3). if a root word ends with ic then ally is added rather than just ly?

Well done if you did. Your spelling activity this week is to write sentences with words ending ly in them. 

Please continue to use the Marshmallow planning (link below) for lessons or visit BBC Bitesize for their daily lessons. 

Reading activity -see the link below. 


This week we will focus on measuring the perimeter of 2D shapes. Why not try measuring the perimeter of your garden? See the links below. Unfortunately, Whiterose maths have stopped allowing free access to their worksheets, although you can still access their videos. Luckily, Mr Redfern has created a link to the worksheets on the 'home learning page'. Please scroll down to the gold star to access the worksheets. 


This week we will continue our work on Mighty Mountains. Our focus will be volcanoes. See the link below.
