Spelling – keep working through Monday’s document

Vocabulary Builder

The Gruffalo’s Children – Read Chapter 17

Heroic Hiccups – Read Chapter 13

The Charlie Bucket Readers – Read Chapter 14

The Bash Street Kids – Read Chapter 11


Word of the Day – “tongue-tied”

Remember to copy the word into the back page of your jotter and find/record the definition.

Optional Task:  Tell a Story using the sentence starter below

Shang High had never felt so nervous and tongue-tied



Mental Maths – We are learning to multiply and divide by 10/100/1000.

Remember the rule – when multiplying we move digits up columns and when we are dividing we move digits down columns – we don’t just add a 0!


Numeracy – We are learning to apply our knowledge in different contexts.

Today, we are looking at word problems.

To help us start thinking about our new topic in Maths…Time. Try these activities.

Time Facts 

Come up with 3 facts about time using appropriate vocabulary (for example second, minute, hour, day, week, weekend, fortnight, month, season, year, leap year, time zone, decade, century, millennium).  Record these in your jotter. 

Example: four months of the year have 30 days/ a minute lasts 60 seconds. 

Time Zones 

These are north to south areas along the surface of the Earth which have the same time because the Sun is at its highest point at the same moment. There are 24 time zones. Parts of the USA are 7 hours behind UK time. So, people in the USA might still be in bed or just getting up, depending on when you are working on this activity. Explore the time in countries children know about and discuss what children in these countries might be doing.
