Good Morning!

We hope you have had a great weekend and enjoyed some family time after all of the hard work you did last week. You were all superstars and thank you parents/carers for all of your hard work and support.


8:50 – 9.30



Today we will be starting the day by continuing with our Geography topic on China. We will learn about what China’s capital city Beijing is like compared to where we live.


Use the PowerPoint provided on our class page to discover all about Beijing with Ted.


Then use the sheet provided or your blue work book to design and create a model of the Great Wall of China using different materials.

The aim of the activity is to make the longest wall in the lesson time! Plan your ideas together
using your design sheet, labelling materials and parts of the wall. Then make your wall.




Your first task for today is to complete the RWI lesson for Set 3 sound ‘er’. Click on the link below and select Set 3 sound ‘er’ lesson.

Make sure you click on Set 3 sounds on the playlists and then on Set 3 speed sounds with Rosie. When you have finished watching the Set 3 sound video please feel free to watch the Set 3 spelling video too.

We would also like you to compete the activity in the table below. Make sure you use the correct colour book which we text out yesterday. Click on the book title to take you to the book on Oxford Owls.

Today in Maths we are going to be looking at division. You will need your Maths Workbook and turn to page 14. We are going to complete pages 14, 15 and 16.

First we are going to look at dividing into equal groups.

To divide cards into 8 equal groups we need to begin by counting how many we have. Next we need to begin circling the groups equally into groups of 2. I know 16 is in my 2 times table.

I now need to count how many equal groups of 2 I Have. The answer is 8.

So 16 ÷ 8=2

To answer 16 ÷ 2 =

If we draw 2 circles as that is the number we are dividing/ sharing by and equally count out 16 between them by putting dots in each circle. We need to put one dot in one and then one dot in the other and keep repeating this until we have no more of the 16 left. We then count how many is in each circle to make sure they are equal.

16÷2 = 8


We will also need to look at inverse to solve some missing number questions. Inverse means the opposite. So the inverse to divide is multiply.

To solve _÷2=5

We need to turn it into a multiply as it is the first number, the amount we are diving, that is missing.

So, this would look like:

5 x 2 =

We know our 2 and 5 times table so the answer to 5 x 2 = 10.

Therefore our missing number is 10.


If it is the second number that is missing we divide the amount, the first number, by the answer. For example:

10 ÷ _ = 5

We would turn this into:

10 ÷ 5 = _

The answer to 10 ÷ 5 = 2

So the missing number is 2.

10 ÷ 2 = 5


10.55 – 11.10



11.10 – 11.35

Times table Practise


Today we would like you to go to the link below and play ‘Hit the Button’. Remember to concentrate on your 2, 5 and 10 times tables and that you are confident before moving on to any of the other one.


11.35 – 12.25



In English today we would like you to get your comprehension book out and complete page 6. We will be looking and completing page 5 on our Google Classroom session.  

Remember in class we read the text twice before looking at the questions. Once you have read the text twice move on to the questions and highlight or underline the answers in the text.

When you write your answers try to write in full sentences and use capital letters and full stops.


12.25 – 1.25



1.25 – 2.05 (this task will continue at 2.20)



This afternoon we well be completing some Science. We are carrying on with our topic of Animals including Humans.

Today we are looking at Microhabitats and you will be making your own using an old plastic bottle. A microhabitat is a small-scale, specific habitat which supports the survival of certain animals or plants. For instance, a rock pool or a rotting log. A microhabitat will differ from the larger environment around it, making it particularly suited to one or more species.

For example, the damp underside of a stone in the forest could provide shelter for a woodlouse, as well as decaying leaf and plant matter for them to eat. This micro-habitat is better adapted for the woodlouse than the exposed undergrowth of the forest floor.

Please click the link below to access the oak academy lesson and resources all about Microhabitats.

Home Reader


We now have access to Bug Club. This allows you to read a variety of books at the correct book band you are on at school. We have allocated your book bands but once you have read all of the books within your current book band it will automatically move you up to the next one. We can’t wait to see how many book bands you move up.

Remember to start each story by using the read to me button and then read the story yourself. After each story make sure you answer the questions at the back of the book to help with your comprehension skills.
