Learning Together at Home 28.4.20


A reminder that although tasks go online at noon each day it is up to you to decide when you do these. Spread out the tasks and do not feel you have to complete everything in one day. Take the tasks and organise your own time.
Joe Wicks has a great workout everyday at 9am which is saved on his YouTube page to do whenever you like  . . .


Riddle – Friday’s answer – IV, the Roman Numeral for four, which is “half” (two letters) of the word five.

I have keys, but no locks and space, and no rooms. You can enter, but you cannot go outside. What am I?

Spelling – ‘ei’ makes a long a vowel sound 

When ‘ei’ is used in some words it can produce a long a vowel sound. Also it can produce two different sounds depending on the word it is in. It can make the sound ‘a’ or the sound ‘e’.

Write a sentence for each word in your list and in each sentence you must have a connective and an adjective. You can make the sentence as silly as you like!

Using your notes (mind map) and the questions you answered yesterday, create a text of your choice (information poster, booklet, PowerPoint etc) based on Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Make sure you add as much detail as you can.

Number – 9 and 10 times tables 

This week we are practising the 9 and 10 times tables.

Today I would like you to write out all the division sums relating to each multiplication sum. An example is below . . .  try to write division sums in one colour and multiplication sums in another.

9 x 2 = 18       18 ÷ 9 = 2

Number – Place Value

Now we are going to practise our place value skills – this task can be completed in your Numeracy jotters. These are all skills we have used before and so should be a revision for you.

The booklet attached below has lots of information that will help you to complete the task and it is important to read the pages leading up to PAGE 11 where you will find today’s task. Complete Challenge 1, 2 and 3 on Page 11. The answers are at the back of the booklet.


(For some of you it will be tempting to do other pages in this booklet but at some point in the coming weeks I will likely set you these other pages as tasks. This would leave you with less to do on those days. I would discourage you from doing pages in this booklet that have not been set as a task by myself.)

I will save all the resources in Teams so if any file does not open have a look for it on Microsoft Teams.

As always any questions . . . just ask!
