1. The Daily Three – Maths


Mental Maths - NUMBOTS: 

Keep going at playing Numbots and see if you can move up another level this week.

Remember to have your user name and password ready.  It is in home school pack and in the cover of your blue Home School book.




Today you will be measuring using volume.  When we measure volume it is almost always measuring a liquid like water or orange juice.  If you have some containers and a measuring jug have it ready to use.


This week we are going to work on using measure Week 10, Lesson 3 is:

Comparing Volume


Here is the link:


At the bottom of the page I have attached the worksheet.




Event 3 – Triple jump, - Hop, skip, jump


Distance – 1 x Height – walk out your height in toe-to-heels.

Place a cone marker at each end. The distance in front of you should be your height. Hold a marker in your hand if possible and start at one end of a cone. Perform a Hop (one foot to the same foot), then a skip (the foot you landed on and then jump and switch and land on the other foot) and then a jump (taking off on one foot and landing on two). Place the marker at the back of your heel and walk away. If you fall back then retake the jump. You are measuring the distance between your height and the distance you jumped NOT the entire distance. JUST THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR HEIGHT AND DISTANCE JUMPED. Write down the score to the closest Heel-to-toe measurement you can.


3.  The Daily Three - Art and Design:


Did you have time to colour or paint your large shell that you drew yesterday?

Today I thought it might be fun to have a go at making few model shells using salt dough:

Here is a Salt Dough recipe:


  • 1 cupful of plain flour (about 250g)
  • half a cupful of table salt (about 125g)
  • half a cupful of water (about 125ml)


 Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl. Add the water and stir until it comes together into a ball.

 Put your finished items on the lined baking sheet and bake (oven at its lowest setting) for 3 hrs or until solid.

 Leave to cool  -  tomorrow we can paint them!!
