Learning Together at Home 29.4.20


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 –  Answer – A keyboard.

What gets wet while drying?

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’.

Choose one task from the cards in the document below. Use the spelling list you choose on Monday.

Number – 9 and 10 times tables 

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

Log in to sumdog and complete the challenge set for you. The challenge will be live till the end of the week.

(if anyone has forgotten their log in details I can e-mail them to you)

Number – Measurement (THIS TASK WILL LAST TWO DAYS)

Read and study from page 48 all the way to page 54 where you will have a go at some Measurement problems. If you get stuck on any question on page 54 refer back to the previous pages you studied. Good Luck!


(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!
