  • Spellings: On the ‘Attachments’ section of our Class Page, you will find a spellings document. Please practise these spellings ahead of retaking the spelling test later in the week. You will need an adult or an older brother or sister to help you with the dictation during this task. 
  • Maths: Use the link below: 


Click on Week 10, Lesson 3 – Calculating angles on a straight line. Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try my best to help you! The questions and answer sheets are on the ‘Attachments’ section of today’s work on our school class page.


(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)


p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!


Writing Task: Explore what is in our Solar System, the famous ‘Space Race’ and the thrilling, true survival space story – Apollo 13. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.


– Discover what ‘The Space Race’ was, by reading and watching these sources - making notes as you read:


Read: DK Find Out - The Space Race:


Read: Pages 4, 5 and 6 of ‘Balloon to the Moon’ by Gill Arbuthnott: (You will need to become a member of LoveReading4Kids. Membership is free).


Watch: YouTube TedEd – ‘Who won the space race?’ – Jeff Steers:


Task - Imagine you have been asked to create a page for ‘Science+Nature’ magazine – about the Space Race. A sample of the magazine can be found here:


When designing your magazine page, you may wish to consider including these features:

- an exciting title - fun-fact / ‘Did you know?’ boxes.

- subtitles for your different sections.

- be creative with your layout – use different fact boxes and images to make your page exciting to the reader.

- you may also want to include additional features, such as a quiz or word search.


Keep reading over your work to check for spelling and punctuation.
