Maths – No Live Session this morning (See you at 11:15)



Today you are going to continue our statistics focus by looking at some more graphs, this time you will notice that they have a lot more information on them along with both bars and lines. You will need to look very carefully at what both the y-axis are showing you on the left and the right of the graph along with the key at the top.


In the example below you will notice the key tells you about the rainfall and the temperature and again this links up to the rainfall on the left side and the temperature on the right side of the graph. You should also be able to see the bars represent the rainfall amount linked to the months and the dotted line links to the temperature in each month too. When you come to answer questions about graphs that have all this information on you need to check carefully at what side/bar/point you need to be looking at.


For example, if you were asked what the average rainfall was in January – you would need to look at the bar for January, find the top of it and look to the left to match it up to the amount of rainfall which would be 20mm.


However, if you were asked what the average temperature was in June – you would need to look up from June and find where the line crosses in June – this time you would need to look to the right as this is where scale is. This would give you an answer of 23oC.



The work for today is available on our Google Classroom by clicking on the Classwork tab at the top – however if you choose to do this on the sheet or in your book that is absolutely fine.

 I have also attached a challenge sheet that has 3 additional questions on for you to have a go at if you wish to push yourself that extra bit - you have all been super at these challenges so far!


Quiet Reading Time – Bug Club

Find a comfortable spot for your reading or you may want to find an unusual place for a change. Ask your adult to send me a picture of you reading in your spot or tell me where it is on Class Dojo.

Make sure you have your reading record signed by an adult at home to show that you have kept up your reading and send over a picture on Class Dojo, this will earn you more dojos.


10:50 – 11:15/ 11:45-12:30



Today there will not be a live English lesson so today’s task is set below.


This week we have been working up to writing a persuasive letter to the Mayor of Hamelin.  We have learnt the grammatical features that we need to use when writing a formal letter.  We have also learnt how to make full sentences out of a variety of persuasive words and we have discovered how important the first sentence of the introductory paragraph is.


After completing your letter plan, which I know are full of wonderful persuasive ideas, I also hope you have decided what character you are, (a market trader, a bin man, a child, a vicar – your choice) you should now be ready to start your letter to the Mayor.


Today’s task is to start your letter, I only want you to write the addresses, in the correct positions, the date (today’s), the correct way to address the Mayor – Dear Mr Mayor, your first/introductory paragraph with a good opening sentence and only your next 2 paragraphs with a strong point to each of them.  Make sure you include all the evidence to confirm your point.  Also make sure you have used some of the strategies we discussed during Tuesday’s lesson, look back in your books to remind yourselves.  If you need any further help you can recap on anything we have discussed, vocabulary ideas, grammatical features of a formal letter etc... by re-watching the lessons through our Google Classroom stream.


I have attached a completed letter for you to look at to help you when you are writing yours. Please do not write any more than your introduction paragraph and your next 2 paragraphs today. I only want you to write part of your letter today because I want you to edit what you have written so you are completely happy with it before we finish it on Friday. 


Please look at the attached letter to see how your letter should be set out and what persuasive techniques have been used.


Use the addresses for the Mayor (the recipient) and the sender (you) that are on the example letter, please do not use your home addresses.


Make the start of your letter amazing.  I saw some fabulous plans yesterday, well done, I am extremely proud of you all.

Computing – Safer Internet Day Live Lesson


This is going to be a live lesson with a special visitor – both Years 5 and 6 will be attending the lesson and this means there has been a different meet link set up for everyone to access this. I have put this link on Class Dojo and sent a text out with it on.


The session is called ‘But It’s Just A Game’, Nicola our guest speaker will talk you through it and discuss how you can be safe online. She is also going to leave you an activity to complete after the session, if you have a sibling in the house that is in Year 6 you only need to log in once to the session as you can work together.


Please remember to use the link that is on Class Dojo and has been text out to you for this lesson. 


1:15 – 2:35


Comic Strip


For today’s lesson you will need to watch the video below. As you know it is Safer Internet Day and the video is linked to this. The story lets you know that you must be extremely careful when using the internet.  It tells you about the story of, ‘Chicken Clicking.’


For your task today I would like you to re-tell the story in a comic strip.  Make your comic strip colourful, you can use pencil crayons or felt tip pens if you have them. Please make sure you get in all the details of the story.


I have also attached a template for a comic strip should you wish to use it.


I’m looking forward to seeing your finished artwork, have fun.
