1. The Daily Five - Maths

Today, can the children spend 10 minutes practising counting backwards from any given number to 50. If your child can do this easily, do numbers to 100. Just like with the finding one more and one less task, ripped up bits of paper with numbers on will be fine for this. The children don't need to go from 46 down to 0. Count back 5 numbers e.g. 46, 45, 44, 43, 42, 41. After this, can they please spend 10 minutes on their Numbots accounts. Their logins can be found in their blue home school diaries on the very first page.


Then, please complete today's WRMH lesson and the math's worksheet provided (Week 5 - Compare length and height). We are still following the WRMH scheme but they have stopped providing free resources. We have decided to take advantage of the premium subscription so we will be continuing the programme. This means that the way you access it will change. The videos will still be on the website in the exact same page but I will upload the worksheet you need each day on to 'today's resources'.


2. The Daily Five - Literacy

Grammar and Punctuation: Question marks


Watch the video:


Complete the question mark resource found under 'Todays resources'.


3. The Daily Five - Outside Time/Be Active

Play kick the can - Variations of this game are still played today and enjoyed by children in playgrounds all around the world. Kick the Can first came into popularity during the Crimean War. Players use an old can as a football and kick it around the playground. Of course, the variations of the game are as endless as a child’s imagination and competitions and challenges can be made up to have players try and pass certain levels of difficulty.


4. The Daily Five - Project

Houses in the past - UK History


Research facts about different houses in these era’s each day, this can include things in the house/rooms. Use these facts to contribute to your non-chronological report. Write these facts in your workbook. Powerpoints including facts and information can be found under 'today's resources'. 

  • The Iron age (celtic round houses).
  • Tudor houses
  • Victorian (very similar to ours e.g. terrace houses made of brick – more of a challenge to compare)


5. The Daily Five - Phonics

Remembering the 'ew' sound. 


Look at these 'ew' words - choose a word and write a sentence containing this word. Remember your capital letters and full stops. Do this 3 times and be sure to discuss the meaning of words they are unsure of.
