Maths quiz

I really enjoyed yesterday Maths puzzle, so let’s try again and see if we can beat yesterday’s score.

Today we have a new set of numbers, and I want you to come up with as many ways as possible to make 26!



Bring all the ways you made 26 to our 9.25am Maths call and we can see how many we can find between us!




09.25 – 10.15

Maths – Statistics – Pictograms

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


Welcome to our second day on Statistics. Today we are going to look at pictograms. These are very similar to the bar charts we looked at yesterday so we should do really well.

Let’s look at the below pictogram showing children’s favourite fruit…



As you can see, similar to the bar chart, we have the different fruits along the bottom (called the x axis). However this time, on the left, you can see a key that tells you each pictures accounts for 2 children’s votes.

So if you look at grapes, there is one picture, which means 1 x 2 = 2 people voted for grapes. Pears has three pictures which means 3 x 2 = 6 people voted for pears.

Like yesterday you will need to be careful of the wording of the problems.

For example, how many more children chose bananas than grapes as their favourite fruit?

Well there are 5 picture for bananas so 5 x 2 = 10 children voted for bananas whilst grapes has one picture so 1 x 2 = 2 children voted for grapes.

To find the difference between these you would need to subtract the totals, so 10 – 2 = 8!


Please have a go at the attached pictograms.

PLEASE REMEMBER to take special note of the key, sometimes each picture could count for 2 votes, or 5 votes, or even 10 votes!


If you are unable to print the sheets, you can just write your answers in your Maths books, you don’t need to ask an adult to copy them out for you.




10.40 – 11.05

English – diary of our home learning experience.

Please use this 20 minutes to continue your diary about what you did yesterday.

It’s OK to tell me what you did AS LONG AS you also tell me how you felt when you did it. Which activity did you enjoy? Which did you not enjoy? What are you hoping you would do today?





11.05 – 12.00

English – Fictional story – creating a setting

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


I was really impressed with the main characters that were created for our stories yesterday. I know I would definitely read a book with them in so we are off to an amazing start.


Today we are going to think about where our story will be set!


Firstly, I want you to look at the slides on the presentation below and answer the questions about what you think you would see, hear and smell if you were there.

I am asking you to do this because it will not be enough to just say your story is set in a forest for example. I want you to consider each of your senses…

What would you see?

What would you be able to hear?

What would you smell?


Once we have done this for the pictures in the presentation, I want you to return to the fictional story we are planning and think about the setting for that.

In your English books with a title of “Fictional Story Setting” tell me about where the story will be set and what each of your senses would pick up if you was actually there.

1.20pm – 2.20pm



With Tuesday traditionally our PE day, let’s use this lesson to do some exercise.

I don’t know how often you did this in the first lockdown, but I loved PE With Joe, and he’s brought it back.

Therefore please complete yesterday’s workout with Joe Wicks found below.

PLEASE NOTE he does not start till 1 minute 50 seconds into the video so you can fast forward till that point if you can.

PE With Joe

I also appreciate some of you love yoga workouts AND dancing so let’s combine the two.

Therefore below is another Cosmic Yoga workout, this time called Cosmic Kids Yoga Dance Party that you can complete if you prefer.

Cosmic Kids Yoga DANCE PARTY!

Finally if you do not have access to either the internet or a suitable device, why not create your own workout. This could be 30 press ups, followed by 30 star jumps as an example. Or you could challenge yourself to see how many skips you could do in a row. Or how many star jumps you can do in a minute, then try and beat that score.


Whichever you choose, I promise you will feel amazing after your workout if you can get a sweat going!



2.20pm – 2.35pm

Mr Gilbey reads The World’s Worst Teacher…

Yesterday we were introduced into Mr and Mrs Lovely-Dovey, and I can’t think of anyone worse! Join us at 2.20pm today to see if they get any worse (as if that’s possible) and how the children get their own back on them!
