How many calculations can you make with these 3 numbers eg: 3,5,15? Work with a grown up to solve it together. Now try and finish the problems on the worksheet independently.



This week we are learning about fashion in the 1960's. Read through the information sheet and look at the pictures closely.  Choose one of the styles (Mary Quant's 'the look', female / male hippy, or the Mod), draw a picture of this style and label it with at least 4 specific points that are different about that particular fashion.

Extension: can you explain how 1960's fashion was different to fashion today?

Today we are planning a recount about what happened to Veruca in The Nut Room in the book Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  Watch this film clip:

Thinking about each stage in this part of the story, make notes in short sentence / idea form using the planning sheet. 

WILF: Write about each stage in chronological order.  Use adjectives and noun phrases to describe.  As you are writing about something that has already happened, you will need to write in the past tense. 


Today we are going to continue our work from yesterday and learn about the relationship between multiplication and division.

You can watch this video to recap your learning from yesterday.


ave a go at doing either page 1 or page 2 or both from the worksheet given below. Try page 1 if you feel this is a bit tricky and page 2 if you feel confident.




Being Me-What makes you special?

Spelling focus: Practise next week's spellings using Look, Cover, Write, Check

SPAG focus: Practise using the Past Tense in writing. 

Complete the table on Page 1 of the worksheet by identifying verbs in either present or past tense.  Then move on to Page 2 and correct the mistakes in this paragraph of writing.  Copy the paragraph out correctly. 


Today we are going to solve missing number problems and apply our learning from Monday and Tuesday. Start with the green problems in your worksheet. Do at least 5 and then move on to do some orange and red missing number problems, or you can continue to do the green ones.

Remember that multiplication is the opposite of division and vice versa. Think about the multiplication and division fact families. You can draw groups or arrays to solve these problems.


This week we are going to start our next science topic- Materials. 

Today we are going to look at the 'suitability of a variety of different materials.'

Go through the PowerPoint presentation and think about the uses of everyday material.

Use the activity sheet * and match the materials to their uses.

Then use the pre drawn tables on the activity sheet ** and look at the Uses of Everyday Materials Photo Cards to help identify uses of everyday materials.

Ext: Can you answer these questions in the extension activity?

Thursday 19th November 


Using your plan from Tuesday, today you will be writing a recount of what happened in The Nut Room.  Use words such as 'then', 'next', 'suddenly' and 'after that' to link each event. 

WILF: Write about each stage in chronological order, using the past tense. 

Use adjectives and noun phrases for descriptions.  Use a range of different conjunctions to make longer sentences. 

Aim for 15 sentences in total.  When you think you have finished, read through your work, edit it (make any improvements) and proof-red it for spelling errors. 



Today we are going to recall multiplication and division facts for the 2,5,10 times tables. Follow the PowerPoint and draw the multiplication grid to solve the table.

Now try and draw the division grid using the Division grid PowerPoint.


Finish the Mymaths homework if you haven't done it yet.

Design & Technology

In preparation for our 1960s party food project during DT, this week we are learning about food health, safety and hygiene rules. Please share the attached 'PowerPoint- Food Health, Safety and Hygiene' (pause at stages to read for your child) and 'Appendix 6 - Hygiene Rules' with your child. Following this can your child design a poster that shows these rules? They could be as creative as they like. We look forward to seeing your child's completed posters back at school.

Friday 20th November


We are now practising to write letters in a cursive style. Look at the Cursive letter formation powerpoint and notice how each letter starts from the line. This will mean that you will probably be forming some letters in a completely new way.  

Practise forming the letters g, h and i in a cursive style. 

Complete 2 lines of correctly formed letters before moving to the next letter. 

Remember that the round part of 'g' should fit within the lower half of the space with the descender coming below the line.  The letter 'h' has an ascender so the round part should fit within the lower half of the space, and the stick (ascender) should touch the top line. For the letter 'i', the whole letter will fit within the lower half of the line. 


Today we are going to solve word problems involving multiplication and division, using

materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts. You can draw groups or arrays to solve the problems.

Try the red problems first and then move on to the green and then the blue problems.
