Week Beginning Monday 11th May


This week’s SPAG focus is adverbs and adverbial phrases.  For task 1, choose the worksheets that challenge you best. They get increasingly more challenging (D = easiest,  E= middling,  GD = most challenging). The answers are at the end of the document.  Task 2 should be accessible to all, with an extra challenge at the end.  Task 3 – choose one worksheet at the right level 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 multiplication problems (sheets 1 & 2) and two sheets of word problems (sheets 3 & 4). In each case, the first sheet is easier and uses teens numbers (12, 15, etc.); the second is harder and uses larger numbers. Choose the sheets that seem the right level for you and use them for days 2, 3 and 4 of maths this week.
Extension - If you find these calculations too easy, try rounding the numbers before you do the calculation to estimate the answer.
e.g. 18  x  3 =
Rounded estimate 20  x  3 = 60
Actual calculation  18  x  3  = 54

Or you could make up your own calculations and check your answers with a calculator.

3. Mathsopoly
Have a go at the Mathsopoly game.




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


Sound Maps


Enjoy focusing on a different sense by listening to and mapping the many sounds around you.

What to do

Find a place outdoors or where you can hear the outdoors like your garden, doorstep or a safe open window. Mark a cross in the centre of the paper to show where you are. Sit still and listen carefully for a few minutes to all the sounds you can hear, then draw them on the paper to show what they are and where the sound is coming from.

Talk about your map with someone once you’ve finished:

What might you hear?

Listen out for birds, the wind, cars, leaves, aeroplanes and more.

What was your favourite sound?

Which sound did you like the best and why?

Were there any sounds you didn’t know?

What was new and do you know where it came from? 


Origami is the art of paper folding and can be really good for our health.

It helps develop hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills and mental concentration.

There are 3 different sets of instructions for you to have a go at on the school website or in the Google Classroom but you can find loads more online.

We would love to see what you make!

Science from Mrs Arnold

Any activity that involves getting outside is a great idea at the moment in our opinion!  This week’s challenge from Mrs Milne involves getting creative with items from nature.  Check out Monday's Art@Home blog post for more details.    

Glitter aversion. Can you make the glitter magically move away from your finger?    

See the blog on Tuesday for details.


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
