Thursday 26th March 2020


Activities to complete today:

  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes answering reading comprehensions on Read Theory. Link:
  • Reading: Spend at least 30 minutes reading a book of your choice. If possible, adults to ask questions about the book after they have finished reading. Link to possible questions you could ask:
  • Grammar: ‘Dan’s screen’ activity on Purple Mash. This activity tests the children’s understanding of adverbs.
  • Maths: ‘Related Denominators’ task on Purple Mash. This activity tests the children’s ability to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator (the bottom number). We briefly did this in class. Please watch this video tutorial before doing this activity if you are not sure:
  • Maths: ‘Adding and Subtracting Fractions with the same denominator’ activity. It is located on our class page, located here under the ‘Attached Documents’ subheading: Please remember to watch the tutorial video above if you are unsure! Send your photos and answers to me on email ( or on Class Dojo.
  • There are three maths activities in the ‘Adding and Subtracting Fractions with the same denominator’ activity. Please just do one of them. One star is the easiest, two stars is harder and three stars is the hardest. 



Activities to be completed by next Monday (CONTINUED FROM YESTERDAY):


  • Writing: The children need to familiarise themselves with the Greek Myth of Jason and the Argonauts. Here is just one of the many video clips available online: The children’s writing tasks this week are to:
  1. Read/watch the story of Jason and the Argonauts.
  2. Write a storyboard of what happens in the story, including drawings to help them internalise the story.
  3. To create a vocabulary bank for each of the main characters using an online thesaurus.

*The children should be very familiar with this writing sequence as we do this with every piece of writing we do. Work should be completed in their writing books or on Microsoft Word. The work does not need to be emailed to me until Monday next week.

  • Spellings: Instead of project work this week – children need to work on their spellings. Page 52 of the ‘NNS Year 5’ document are spellings that the children need to be able to spell by the end of the year. Please practise these daily in groups of no more than 5. If your child has been sent their own personalised spelling sheet – please practise these instead.

If you have any questions about any of the above, please contact myself on Class Dojo.
