Week Beginning Monday 18th May


This week’s SPAG focus is punctuation, with a special focus on punctuating speech sentences.  Work through the tasks in order, choosing the right level of challenge.  This week, every activity has answers on a separate page of the same document so that your child can self-assess.

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 division problems (sheets 1 & 2) and two sheets of word problems (sheets 3 & 4). In each case, the first sheet is easier; 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. If you find any of the work too easy or difficult, let your teacher know by sending us an email.

If possible, we would like you to practise chunking. Remember how we set out our division using chunking. The aim is always to take away the biggest chunk you can at one time.  The 'Maths overview' sheet in the Google Drive folder below will remind you how to do this.

3. Design a maths game

Last week you had the chance to play the Mathsopoly game.

This week, try designing your own game. You could use the Mathsopoly board but change the questions. Or you could design something completely different? It’s up to you!

Don’t forget to let us know how you get on – we’d love to see your designs and if they’re really good, we might even be able to use them in school!




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


Invent A Game

National Elmer Day!

Can you invent a game that can be used with household objects? You might already have done this to keep you and your family entertained!

See the file in the Google Drive for ideas.


Saturday 23rd May is National Elmer Day!

Elmer probably reminds you of some of the first books you read and he is such a colourful character. Why not spread some of his positivity by completing one (or more!) of the Elmer Day activities?

See the separate pack of activities in the Google Drive to choose from.

You could also visit the dedicated website.

Art from Mrs Milne

Science from Mrs Arnold

We really enjoyed seeing your Picasso-inspired portraits from earlier this term – so quirky and characterful!  Today on the school blog, Mrs Milne introduces another Great Artist: Spanish painter and ceramicist Joan Miro.  Again, this gives an opportunity to create some really bright and colourful art to brighten up your home with few materials needed. Don’t forget to check out Monday's blog post to find out more.

Travelling Water. Have a go at making water travel from one cup to another.

See the BWJS blog on Tuesday for more 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
