Monday 27th April

Hi everyone! I hope that you are all safe and well and had a good weekend. I will try and vary the activities that I give you each day so that it doesn't become too repetitive. 


**Please just do what work you can and please please don’t worry if you don’t do it all.  I’d rather give you lots to keep you busy than not enough. If you wish to do alternative activities, that is also absolutely fine. Just do what is right for your family situation. Also, if you get stuck or are unsure, please just ask me. **


 Today’s activities are as follows:

  1. A 10 minute buster from CGP Reading
  2. A 10 minute buster from CGP Grammar
  3. A 10 minute buster from CGP Maths
  4. One Page of the big CGP Maths book
  5. Complete Day 16 spelling activities on Purple Mash 2Do
  6. Complete an Arithmetic activity on Kids Classroom Secrets.


Writing - Wonder by R J Palacio

This week is all about the moving story of August Pullman.  

‘In a world where you can be anything, be kind.’


Due to the sensitive nature of the content of this book, it is advised that parents monitor and support the reading and watching of clips throughout this unit with ongoing discussion if required.


Read and enjoy up to the opening chapters that I have put below for you. (This replaces the reading task for today). What are your first impressions of the following characters?

- August

- Mom

- Dad

- Mr Tushman

- Jack Will

- Julian

- Charlotte


Jot down a few ideas for each character focusing only on what you have read. (Not what you know if you have read/seen Wonder before!) You could write it in a grid. (See grid below) You might have more than one first impression of a character, in which case write them all.



First Impression

Evidence from the text


I think Auggie is compassionate.

I think Auggie is …

I think this because in the text it says ‘I wanted her to see how mad I was at her. But then I saw her face and just nodded. She seemed more scared than I was.’








Science – Go to Purple Mash. On the 2do there is a quiz about the Circulatory System for you to complete. Use the work that you completed last week to help you. If you haven’t done last week’s work – Go to the class web page and the work is there for you to do.



Before the school closure, you had all researched, designed and planned an Ancient Greek style pot. Your task this week is to use whatever you can at home to use your ideas from school to design and make a Greek pot (or object). You can use any resources you want to make it – make playdough, make salt dough, use natural materials from the garden, build it out of toilet rolls. You can create your designs in your Green Book first before you take the plunge and start creating the real thing! I have put some images below for inspiration. You will have all week to do this so there is no rush. Please send me photos of what you have been up to. J


Any completed work can be emailed ( or dojo’ed to me.


And as always, any questions please just ask.
