Our timetable for the day is above which will show you when each lesson will be. We will stick to these video times for the forseeable which should help you plan your day around this. 


We will continue with the 3 video lessons a day, there will be 15 minutes of input and then the rest of the time will be your own to go and do the activities.

Please send your work into me via Dojo, Google Classroom or email (

We will be marking this work and using it as proof of attendance for each day.


Feel free to watch newsround each day to keep in touch with what is going on in the world.



Today we are going to remind ourselves of how to multiply fractions. This always sounds way more difficult than it actually is. I find it easier to think about multiplication as repeated addition so if I multiply 1/5 by 3, then I am adding 1/5 + 1/5 + 1/5 = 3/5.


Have a look on the link below for a visual representation of this.

When you multiply two fractions together, you simply multiply the numerators together and the denominators together. See the video below for an example.

Multiplying Fractions

Complete the worksheet below and then the jigsaw activity. If you can't print the jigsaw out, just draw a 3 by 3 grid in your book and write where each piece should go (or copy the jigsaw out onto some scrap paper or an old cereal box then cut it out).



I'm going to go through some comprehension in our Google Classroom Meeting. Make sure you are logged in and ready to write by 10:20am as we will again only have 15 minutes of live video. You will need your plain exercise book ready with something to write with.


We will complete pages Page 16/17 (The Curse of the Gloamglozer by Paul Stewart & Chris Riddell) & Page 18/19 (Malala Yousafzai) of you CGP Comprehension Book TWO.



Key Question: Is anything ever eternal?

Title: How does Jesus portray love?


Mrs Riley has set us our RE work as usual today. Look at the questions to discuss with an adult at home. All bible references can be found underneath.


Questions: What is love? What types are there? Can love be unconditional?


Watch the video below:

Love in Action | Bible Story | LifeKids

We are called to love God and love others. What does it look like to love others? Romans 12:9-21

Read the series of Bible references. (love your enemies Matthew 5:43-47, The two great commandments Mark 12: 29-31, The Lost Son Luke 15:11-31, Jesus heals 10 lepers, Luke 17:11-19, Jesus forgives the people who have crucified him Luke 23:32-34, God loves the world John 3:16, What is love? Corinthians 13:4-13).  


Questions: What have we learnt about love from these Bible readings? Jesus taught that love should be eternal and unconditional. Is this possible? 


The Christian word ‘agape’ meaning unconditional love.


Activity: Children choose 2 extracts and explain how Jesus portrays love in each one. Take a picture of the work and send it in to Mr Oakley.

Reading with Mr O


Log back into Google Classroom for a live reading of our class reader "Blitzed" by Robert Swindells. We're read the first 4 chapters and will soon find out about George's antics on his street!


Make sure you are logged in by 12:50pm to ensure you don't miss any of the story!



Carrying on with our Still Life work and the paper cut outs we created last week, we are going to start using paper cut outs of bottles and only primary/secondary colours to create a scene.


Draw a basic bottle shape onto the back of a plain piece of paper. Do this multiple times so that you have 8 bottles on one page (similar to the image below). Colour each shape in a primary or secondary colour then cut them out. Follow the instructions in the video to use the style of Henri Mattise. Then rearrange them multiples times to create different scenes with the same shapes and colours. Write me a couple of sentences of which is your favourite and why.


You can repeat this with other general shapes such as mugs or bowls to see what the effect would like like by combining colours and shapes.

Paper Cut Outs with Henri Matisse

In this lesson, we look at the man who made decoupage famous: Henri Matisse. We discuss his methods, and try our hands at Matisse's style of drawing with sci...
