Times Table Practise

This week, I would like you to use this 25 minutes to become fluent in your times tables.

Today we will look at our 4 times table.


To remind yourself of the 4 times table why not complete the below table…

0 x 4 = 0

1 x 4 = 4

2 x 4  = 8

3 x 4 = ?

4 x 4  = ?

5 x 4  = ?

6 x 4  = ?

7 x 4  = ?

8 x 4  = ?

9 x 4 = ?

10 x 4  = ?

11 x 4  = ?

12 x 4  = ?


After completing the above table, if you have access to a device connected to the internet, please visit Hit the Button on the below link and practise your 4 times table.


What is the first score you can get?

Can you beat this score by the end of the lesson?


If you do not have access to the internet at this time, why not ask your adult to choose a number between 0 and 12 and then you shout out what that number times 4 is. For example if your adult shouts out 3, you calculate what 3 times 4, and shout out 12. How quick can you get at shouting out the answer?



09.25 – 10.15

Maths – Money!


Google Classroom video call at 09.25am for the first 15 minutes.


This week we are going to look at one area of Maths I promise you will use every day for the rest of your life… Money!


In this country we use pounds (written as £) and pence (written as p) as our currency of money.

There are 100 pence in a pound, so if you had 200p = £2


Money comes in two forms… notes and coins.







The easy part of money… each coin or note has its value written on so often all you need to do is look at the amount written on the coins and then use column addition to find the total amount.


And that is the skill we will be practising today.


Please see attached two sheets showing pots of money. Your task is to add up much how much money is in each pot.


Top Tips…

  • Start by looking for any pounds (either notes or coins), adding those up, then look at the pence.
  • When writing a value that has pounds and pence you write it using the pounds symbol and a decimal point before the pence. For example 2 pounds and 20 pence should be written as £2.20
  • Remember your basics when using column addition… Layout Layout Layout!



10.40 – 11.05

English – Articles

KS2 English Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling Targeted Question Book

Pages 6 and 7.


In this 25 minutes, I want you to attempt pages 6 and 7 from the Key Stage 2 Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling question book.


These pages look at “articles”.

Articles are the words ‘a’, ‘an’ and ‘the’ written before nouns.


For example…

Yesterday I saw a bird playing in my garden.

Mr Gilbey picked up the apple.


There is a very simple rule as to whether the article should be ‘a’ or ‘an’.

We would use ‘an’’ when the following noun begins with a vowel (that is the letters ‘a’ ‘e’ ‘i’ ‘o’ and ‘u’)

We would use ‘a’’ when the following noun begins with a consonant sound (every other letter that is not a vowel).


There is also another rule which dictates whether you use ‘the’ or ‘a/an’.

You use ‘the’ when talking about specific things for example ‘the phone rang’.

Meanwhile you use ‘a’ or ‘an’ when talking about general things for example ‘a phone rang’.


Please give both these pages a go during these 25 minutes.

The pages also have lots of top tips so please ensure you read every part of both pages.



11.05 – 12.00

English – Punctuating sentences.


Google Classroom video call at 11.05am for the first 15 minutes.


We are going to start this week by punctuating a piece of text.

I have the opening of a story that has had all its capital letters and full stops removed.

I want you to read the paragraph and try to spot where punctuation needs to go.

Then rewrite the sentence in your English book with all the capital letters and full stop added back in.


With this being the first day of this activity I’m going to be kind and tell you how many full stops and capital letters are missing…


Capital letters         25 capital letters are missing

Full stops                 18 full stops are missing


How many of these can you find?


A couple of tips for this activity…

  • I would suggest reading the paragraph several times before even picking up a pencil.
  • Without full stops this text makes very little sense. Therefore think where would adding a full stop help the text make sense.
  • After you have decided where to put a full stop, do not forget the first word of the next sentence needs capital letter.
  • What other words need captial letters? Don’t forget to change those as well.
  • Remember the text starts from the very top of the page so think about captial letters from there, not just from “Guster”.



This text is also attached below should you want to print it off.

1.00pm – 1.20pm

Quiet Reading Time

Let’s use this time to settle down with our eBooks on Bug Club and have some quiet reading time.

I can see most of you have already logged on which is great.


If you want to move up a Book Band please consider…

  • It is NOT how quickly you read the books that will make this decision.
  • It is actually how you score on the questions that you are asked throughout the book.
  • Therefore please read the book several times before even attempting the questions.
  • Then when you are ready to answer the questions please take your time like you would during a comprehension lesson.
  • Even though you may be given a second chance to answer a question correctly, it is your first answers that gets logged so getting them right first time will help you move through the book bands.


If you one of the class not yet logged onto Bug Club, please see below some easy steps on how you can get in and start reading.

1.20pm – 2.20pm

Music / DT


Please see attached two sheets on how to make your own musical instrument – a shaker and a gurio.


These can be made from lots of things found around the home or in your recycling, so you should have something to use.

Once made, can you also decorate them in your own unique style?


Once you have create and decorated one of the instruments, why not pick your favourite song and see if you can play along to it. Please ask your adult to send me a picture of you rocking out. Or if you are brave enough to send me a video that can be sent to me via the school’s Facebook messenger.


Then please bring it with you for the 2.20pm call so I can see them all.

2.20pm – 2.35pm
