Reading – Make sure that you are reading for 20 minutes a day whilst you are at home. Don’t forget that you can log on to Oxford Owl and access books there and also 

1.    English

Lesson 1: SPaG – Inverted commas
Today we will be looking at inverted commas otherwise known as speech marks. Go through the input and have a go at the sheet. We would then like you to write a conversation between two characters. Challenge: Think about how you can make the dialogue more interesting by including how they say and what they are doing. 

Lesson 2: Advert
Today you will finish off writing your advert. Remember to keep it persuasive and that you want your listener to buy your machine. 

Lesson 3: Purple polish
Today you will be making sure your advert is as good as you can make it. Follow the slides and have a go at improving your work. Remember to make it the best it can be. Once you are done, we would like you to record yourself saying your advert. 
 

2.    Maths

Lesson 1: Arithmetic test
Today you will be having a go at an arithmetic paper. Give yourself 20 minutes to have a go at the different questions. Don’t worry if you get stuck – move on and you can come back to it if you need to. 

Lesson 2:  4 operation word questions
Today you will be looking at reasoning (word questions) and thinking about what steps we need to do. Have a look through the input and then have a go at the questions. Remember to underline any important information and think about the steps you need to take.

Lesson 3:  Times table practise
As we always say, times tables are SO important and today we will spend the lesson making sure that you are 100% happy with all of them. There are different jobs for you to do.

Task 2: Loop cards https://www.topmarks.co.uk/Flash.aspx?f=loopcardsv6 
Task 3: TT Rockstars – Sound check

 

3.    Spellings 

Words: This week, your words are the ones that we have covered over this half term. Use the input to find 10 words that you struggle with and have a go at learning those. 

Lesson 1:  Look up each word in a dictionary. Write out its definition and use it in a sentence. If you need an online dictionary, use this website https://dictionary.cambridge.org/ 
Lesson 2:  Use the method of look, cover, write, check to practise your spellings. Underline any parts of the word that you are finding tricky.
Lesson 3: Yesterday, you should have underlined any parts of your spelling rules that you found tricky. Practise writing them again but this time write the tricky part in a different colour. 
Lesson 4:  Create a word search of your words. See if a family member can find all of them.
Lesson 5: Get a family member to test you on your spellings. How many did you get right? Which ones will you need to keep working at? 
 

4.   Topic
