Round to estimate and approximate

Follow the below link, watch the video and complete the worksheet attached.


Lesson 3 – Round to estimate and approximate 2019

Look back and study the timeline of your own walk. You should now have a clear route mapped out, lots of extra detail added to make it interesting and some poems that link in with your walk in some way. This is your planning.
Choose one section. This could be the starting point or a more interesting point later on in your walk. Remember a lot of this walk will be from your imagination.
Using the book as an example, write a few sentences that describe that one section of the walk and then include the poem underneath. I have attached a few examples from ‘Where my wellies take me’ to use as a guide but I want this to be your own work.

Spellings: I shall be taking the spelling test today so would like you to join the zoom meeting at 2pm.
Get as much practice in before this as possible and have a pen and piece of paper ready at 2.

Summer Term – Week 6 (w/c 1st June) – Lesson 2 – multiply mixed numbers by integers.

Watch the teaching video clip and then answer the related questions, pausing the video at the relevant stage. Due to subscription changes I have attached the worksheet below.



  1. For each word you will need to find five synonyms and five antonyms. Remember that you can use a thesaurus.






  1. In your book rewrite the passage below, replacing the bold, underlined words with synonyms.

The Little Hangletons all agreed that the old house was “creepy.” Half a century ago, something strange and horrible had happened there, something that the older inhabitants of the village still liked to discuss when topics for gossip were scarce. The story had been picked over so many times, and had been embroidered in so many places, that nobody was quite sure what the truth was anymore. Every version of the tale, however, started in the same place: Fifty years before, at daybreak on a fine summer’s morning, when the Riddle House had still been well kept and impressive, a maid had entered the drawing room to find all three Riddles dead.


Discuss the difference between a democracy and a dictatorship. List the advantages and disadvantages of having one person making all the decisions (dictatorship) or a group of people having a say in how decisions are made (democracy).

Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965) once said:

The best argument against democracy is a five minute conversation with the average voter.”


What do you think he meant by this? Stress the importance of voters taking responsibility for being informed.

Can you think of any issues you would like to vote on? Maybe these could link with our school day or you could expand to issues that are part of your community or even your country.

Monday 8th June

Summer Term – Week 6 (w/c 1st June) – Lesson 1 – Multiply unit and non-unit fractions by integers.

Watch the teaching video clip and then answer the related questions, pausing the video at the relevant stage. Due to subscription changes I have attached the worksheet as a PDF file.


Use a Thesaurus to find 3 interesting words for each letter of the Alphabet. Think about finding and recording useful words you might use in your own writing at some stage.

Present these clearly in a poster/dictionary format using illustrations for some words to make it more appealing.

A a

LO: To describe how some plants reproduce.

Photograph some plants – these can be from your garden or from a walk you have been on. By looking at your photographs have a think about which plants are pollinated by the wind and which ones are pollinated by insects based just on what you can see.
Look at the statements and pictures attached.

Activity Sheet Pollination

Put them into two columns:
• Pollinated by the wind
• Pollinated by insects

Friday 3rd April


Maths: Following on from yesterday’s work on tenths can you complete the fraction sheet attached (picture 1).

Look at the picture attached (picture 2 & 3) and read the story opening.

Can you use a conjunction (but, or, yet, so) to extend the starting sentences below. Remember to use a comma before adding in the conjunction.

E.g. Marie had once been blissfully happy in this place, but now there was nothing here but painful memories.
1. The sun was shining,
2. The trench was empty,
3. Marie felt cold,

Sick sentences:
Can you improve/up level the below sentences to add more interest and excitement for the reader.
It was smokey. Marie stood in the trench. She held the mask to her face.

Quite a few children have told me they have purchased ‘Straw into Gold’. If you have done this could you read pages 21-46 over the Easter break.

Look back at the picture you have used for English today. Imagine you are wearing the gas mask, standing in the trench. Draw what you can you see in front of you.


Thursday 2nd April


Converting between decimals and fractions focusing on tenths.
Use the prompt sheet to familiarise yourself with the decimal – percentage conversions between tenths e.g. 0.5 = 50/100

Complete the second sheet. Write the correct fraction along with the related decimal number.

Look up some well known nursery rhymes. Explore the setting, characters, origin and meaning of one of your favourites.

Using a dictionary find the correct definitions for your new spelling words for this week.

Look at picture 3 (attached). The pictures are of three different observatories from around the world. Do some research and see if you can find out what an observatory is and where each one is. What are the similarities and differences between the three observatories? Think about:
What they do
Where they are found

Extension: Which one is the odd one out? What are your reasons for choosing this one?



Wednesday 25th March

Wednesday & Thursday:

 Maths –  Complete day 3 of your pack – arithmetic and reasoning.

 English: A 2 Day Creative Writing Task

I want to give you 2 days to write the most fabulous story/description about your map. You are going to have to fill your writing with description, atmosphere and vision so your reader will be able to imagine it. Please try and read the beginning for The Hobbit as an example of this. Remember to follow the writing process we use in class –

1 – plan the outline of what you want to write about. (Emily S, Emily P and Thomas, don’t worry about this too much, less is more  – remember it’s just so you have a skeleton for you to plan ahead, don’t spend too much time here.)

2- write your first draft – be as imaginative as you want, no need to worry about the huge tick list we have to complete, this is about your story telling. (Keira and Kim – you will love this opportunity!)

3 – edit for improvements, especially word choices or areas of missing description. Remember – what, why, when, how. (Lola and Daisy you were beginning to be experts at this part for improving your work!)

Activity  1 – Oral Storytelling. Verbally tell a story to someone about your map and what would happen in your fictional world.

Activity 2 – create a short story that takes place in your own fantasy world. Who are you characters and where might they have to journey to? Why?

OR describe in detail a location on your map just like JRR Tolkien, it is dripping in details and imagery. Try reading the first chapter from The Hobbit This link will take you to an online version you could read.

There is NO need to send me your work…yet!  No need for you to  complete a final draft ( as long as YOU can read it, that is what will be important!) I have a cunning plan for Friday! Just make them as amazing as you can!

An extra activity and a bit of fun: 

  1. A 30 day Lego Challenge. This might not suit everyone but many you have sent amazing pictures of your creations so thought I would add this for now while I work on a few more projects for later on.
  2. For those who want, especially for those who love escape rooms or Harry Potter! I saw this yesterday and was thinking of doing it with my son so thought some of you might like it too! A Harry Potter Online Escape Room.

Fronted Adverbials

Here is a list of different adverbials. They are used to modify a verb and are often placed at the front of a sentence followed by a comma. E.g. Enthusiastically, I woke up ready to start the day.

Once the purple mash task has been completed, choose a range of different adverbials from the list above and discuss/write sentences to tell me about your weekend.
