Computing RWI Maths Break Times Tables Practise English Lunch Art Story Time Art Reading

Good Morning!

What a wonderful day of super work again yesterday. Well done Superstars!


8:50 – 9.30


In computing we are beginning to look at algorithms. Algorithms are described as something very simple but important. They are explained as instructions that are split into little steps so that a computer can solve a problem or get something done. An example of how to brush your teeth is demonstrated by a cartoon mouse and robot. The process is broken down into simple steps such as: 'take the lid off the toothpaste' and 'open your mouth'.


Please click on the link below to watch a short video on Algorithms.


After watching the clip, could you write your own set of instructions such as taking a photo, having a bath, making a cup of tea or laying the table. You could draw, write or type step-by-step instructions and if possible, someone could try to follow them.  If you have access to a smart phone or tablet you can download Scratch Junior app and practise your algorithms.




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




Today in Maths we are going to be looking at subtraction. You will need your Maths Workout book and turn to page 9.

To answer some of the questions you will need to use a number line, (I have attached one on our class page), or partition the number.


For example:

28-14 =

To subtract using a number line first find the starting number which is 28 then make 14 jumps back.

So the answer is 14.


Using partitioning, splitting the number, we need to separate each number into tens and ones.

28 becomes 20 ten and 8 ones.

14 becomes 10 tens and 4 ones.

We then subtract the tens from each other.

20-10 = 10

Then we subtract the ones from each other.

8-4 = 4

The final step is to add the tens and ones together.

10+4= 14.


You will also need to fill in missing numbers.

To solve some operations you will just need to take the answer away from the first number.

So if the second number is missing we need to:


We would

7-3 = ?

The answer to this Maths story is 4. So the missing number is 4.


If the first number is missing we need to do the inverse. The inverse is the opposite operation that we have. So the opposite of subtract is add.

For example:


We would add the answer and the second number to get the first.

4+3 = 7. The missing number is 7.


10.55 – 11.10



11.10 – 11.35

Times table Practise

Today we would like you to go to the link below and play ‘Mental Maths Train’. 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 you will need your Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling book and turn to page 4.

Today we are going to be looking at Verbs. A verb is a word used to describe an action, it is a ‘doing’ word.

Verbs can be used to describe an action, that’s doing something. For example, like the word ‘jumping’ in this sentence:

The rabbit was jumping in the field.

Jumping is the verb.

I talk to my friend.

Talk is the verb.

Once you have completed Page 4, we would then like you to write 8 sentences containing a verb, in your blue exercise book.


12.25 – 1.25



1.25 – 2.05 (this task will continue at 2.20)


This afternoon we will be looking at art. In our art this half term we are going to be creating a wall hanging all around Chinese New Year A wall hanging is a picture we can hang on the wall which usually showcases a topic.


This afternoon we want you to research Chinese New Year and images that we associate with the country. We would like you to write China in the middle of the page in your blue book. From the word China we would like you to draw a line and write your ideas down about what you could use in your wall hanging. One idea per line please. I have included an example below.




2.05 – 2.15

Mrs Etheridge/ Mrs Joesbury Reads
Another opportunity for us to read more of our favourite story.



2.15 – 2.45

 Art finish the task from earlier.



2.45 – 3.05


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.


The link for Bug Club is:
