Learning Together at Home P3M Friday 22.5.20

Happy Friday everyone


Here are your learning activities for today:



Before you write out your sentences, think carefully about the words you have been learning this week. Have a look at them, go over the ones you have found tricky.

Take a new page in your jotter or draw a neat line under your last piece of work with a ruler. Write dictation at the top and remember the date. Ask someone at home to read your dictation out to you.


She relaxed when the small child decided to be well behaved and could be looked after  unaided.

In the bright sunlight he squinted to see the boat in the distance but then squeezed his eyes tightly shut.


There were 3 sad cats here.

Some of them put hats on.


They lifted the boxes with the seeds and planted them all.

When the sun started to get hot, he shouted out that his lolly had melted.



Words that sound the same are called homophones. They have different meanings and they are spelled differently.

Today we are going to practise using there, their and they’re. Watch this short clip to see some examples of when we should use the correct spelling of these words.


Their means it belongs to them, ‘I looked after their dog.’

They’re is short for they are, ‘They’re looking after the dog.’

There refers to a place, ‘The dog is over there.’

Copy these sentences into your jotter and put the correct homophone in the space. Use the heading – Homophones. ( If writing the sentences down is a little tricky you could talk about the correct word to use in each sentence with someone at home).


a. They hung there/they’re/their coats  in the hall.

b. They’re/there/their having fish and chips for dinner.

c. There/their/they’re are 28 children in our class.

d. I looked but there/they’re/their was nobody there/they’re/their.

e. The class posted there/ they’re/ their drawings on Teams.

f. Their/they’re/there very thirsty after their/there/they’re walk.


Try making up three sentences of your own using there, they’re and their.



Mental Maths

Complete the following addition and subtraction fact family:

9 + 4 = 13

4 + 9 =

13- 9 =

13 – 4 =

Now, complete the family for these in the same way:

6 + 7 =

3 + 8 =

5 + 6 =

8 + 7 =

If you would like a challenge, have a go at some multiplication and division fact families.

2 x 6 = 12

8 x 3 = 24

4 x 5 = 20

9 x 3 = 27


I hope that you all managed to make a metre strip yesterday. If you didn’t manage perhaps someone at home has a measuring tape you could use?

Remember 1 metre (1m) is the same as 100 centimetres(100cm). Can you think when we might need to use metres to measure something?

A ruler is fine for measuring smaller objects,  but rulers only measure up to 30cm, so for longer, wider things measuring  in metres is much better.

Without measuring, estimate (guess) :

a. the length of your bed

b. the width of your bed

c. the length of your bedroom

d. the width of your bedroom

e. the length of your bath

f. the height of your front door

Write down your estimates in your jotter (remember to write the date at the top of the page). Remember to write for metres after the number.

Now use your metre strip to measure the same objects and write down your answers in your jotter beside your estimates. How close were your estimates?


Fold your metre strip in half. Now fold it again. You now have a metre strip split into quarters. Each quarter measures 25 cm.

REMEMBER 1 metre = 100 cm

How many cm in :

a. 1m

b. 5m

c. 8m

d. 3m


f. 7m

g. 6m

h. 10m

i. 4m

j. half a metre

k. quarter of a metre

l. one and a half metres


Remember to look at the separate post for French activities.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
