Monday 27th April

Good Morning! I hope you enjoyed the sunshine this weekend! I certainly did! Have a wonderful day! 


1. The Daily Five - Maths

Please download the Week 2 Lesson 3 Fractions of an Object (2) worksheet. Instead of watching the video, please watch the video of me doing it. You will need to either have the sheet printed off or just a pen and paper and then the worksheet open in a new tab on your device. I will then teach you how to do this and go through the questions on the sheet with you. If you would rather follow the White Rose Maths video this is not a problem!


Main video for lesson:

Challenge video for lesson (Q's 6, 7, 8 and 9) 


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

We are going to be having a look at newspaper reports. There are many features of a newspaper report.


1. Headline - Grabs the readers attentions. It may rhyme, include some alliteration, or just be catchy!

2. Introduction - This contains the 5 W's - What, When, Where, Who and Why.

3. Pictures and Captions - You will have pictures in your newspaper reports, underneath will be a small sentence saying what the picture is.

4. It will include lot's of facts.

5. It will be written in the third person (he, she, they, them, it)

6. It could have some quotes (remember your 66 and your 99)

7. Last paragraph - this could tell the reader what you think will happen next.

8. If you have a look at examples, they are written in columns. So when you write yours another day, split your page into 2 columns.


What I would like you to do today to PLAN (not write) a newspaper report about activities children have been doing during this time off (you can make it up, it doesn't actually have to be what other children have been doing). You could make up some characters that you are talking about in this, remember though, you are not using "I" or "me".


I have attached a plan template underneath all of the daily 5 you could print this off or draw it out to help you. It will be really useful for you to have a look at it, it makes the structure a lot clearer. I have also attached one that I have filled in as an example. Some of this you may even be able to keep the same for yours. I have also attached some examples of some newspaper reports if you want to have a look.

Oak Group: 

Watch Mr Thorne does Contractions using this link:

Watch it once through once and then watch it again pausing it so you can write your word list in your workbook.  

Choose 10 words from Mr Thorne’s video.

This time, write the two words and then the contraction next to it:

 have not  - haven’t

must not – mustn’t

Then practice each word three times, if you do not finish you can complete the practice words tomorrow!


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time

Make your own outdoors colour scavenger hunt! You could either make it yourself and complete it yourself, give it to someone else to complete, or ask someone else to make the colours for you to look for. All you need to do is put a few colours on a piece of paper, and then go outside and see what you can find to match each colour.


4. The Daily Five - Project

Today you are going to prepare some salt dough (if you have the ingredients) for tomorrows lesson. Tomorrow we will be making medals that soldiers would have been given during WW2.

To make salt dough:



1 cup of flour

1/2 cup of salt

1 1/2 tsp oil

1/2 cup water 



First mix all of the ingredients into a bowl.

Then mix and knead with hands until it doesn't stick to hands.

Finally store in an air tight container in the fridge ready to use tomorrow.


5. The Daily 5 - Reading

Please complete some reading of your choice and note down what you have read on your reading log.
