Week Beginning Monday 4th May


This week’s SPAG focus is verbs: identifying them and replacing bland verbs with more powerful ones. The instructions are on each sheet. For Task 1 there is a paper-based activity if you do not have access to a computer. There is a choice of activity for tasks 2 and 3, so choose the one that you think is a good challenge for you.

We will be setting two writing tasks a week. The instructions for these tasks will be at the top of each worksheet.

Guided Reading

Each week we will set two reading related tasks for your child to complete. Instructions and examples will be at the top of the worksheet.


5 short tasks on one spelling rule.


Here are the three different maths tasks for this week:

1. Arithmetic test
Complete the test doing as much as you can. If you cannot print the test off, just write the questions onto paper and complete them there.

2. Revision of subtraction methods
There are two sheets of pure subtraction problems (sheets 1 & 2) and two sheets of word problems (sheets 3 & 4). In each case, the first sheet is easier and does not need repartitioning; the second is harder and you will need to repartition the numbers. Choose the sheets that seem the right level for you and use them for days 2, 3 and 4 of maths this week. If you find these sheets too tricky, look at sheets 5 and 6 – these are easier!
If you find any of the work too easy or difficult, let your teacher know by sending us an email.

3. Fruit shop investigation
How many different combinations of fruit can you buy from Mr Penny’s Fruit Shop?




In addition to the above, here are a few suggestions for some other things you might like to do this week.


Banner Competition

VE Day – Friday 8th May

RSE are looking for students to design a banner which thanks and shows support to the NHS and key workers, for their dedication and hard work during this pandemic. 

We'll pick 5 winners, who will have their artwork recreated by our talented designers and printed on to a big 3x1m banner for us to proudly attach to our gates! 

Use the template (in the Google Drive folder below) to complete your design.

To enter, you simply need to take a photograph of your completed worksheet and email it to hello@fsedesign.co.uk alongside your name, age and details of your school. 
Please also email your entry to Mr Campbell so that we can show off all your designs on the school blog.

The closing date is Friday 8th May at 5pm! Winners will be announced on Monday 11th May!


VE Day - or 'Victory in Europe Day' - marks the day towards the end of World War Two (WW2) when fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe came to an end.

We would like you to do some research into what happened on VE Day and how World War Two came to an end and present your findings.

 Follow some of the links to find out more:






It’s up to you how you present what you find out:

Maybe a poster? A Power Point presentation?

A fact sheet or leaflet? A diary entry in role as someone who lived through this momentous day?

Please share your work with your teachers – we would love to see what you have found out and how you decide to share it with us!

Art from Mrs Milne

Science from Mrs Arnold

Your first challenge for the month of May actually comes from Mrs Glasspool and involves decorating your front window to make your neighbours and passers-by smile.  We would love for this to become a whole-school art challenge that everyone has a go at embracing.  See Monday’s Art@Home blog post for more.

DIY Lava Lamp make your own lava lamp. Watch the bubbles rise and fall like magic.

See the blog next week for the instructions.


We hope that you enjoy the tasks we have set. It would be lovely if you could send us photos or examples of what you’ve been up to so we can share them in the class blog, which will be done on Friday.

Keep busy
