Here is your learning for Thursday 11th February 2021

Term 3 Week 6

Thursday 11th February 2021


Good morning Chestnut Class!

Reading for 30 minutes.  You can do this in shorter chunks if you wish.  Please note down what you have read in your yellow reading record. 

Grammar – We will be carrying out an application and reasoning sheet on punctuating direct speech.  This will embed the work you did on Tuesday.  As usual, I attach the teaching powerpoint in case you would like to refer to it again and 3 sheets.  Choose the sheet that you think is right for you, rather than doing all 3.

Shelters and Traps live session with the FSC – This is live at 10.30 and here is some information about what it will cover:

‘For this episode we will be joining our team at FSC Rhyd-y-Creuau – our centre in North Wales. Have you ever wanted to build your own shelter? We will show you where to start as well as how to catch creepy crawlies in your garden.’

I have also attached the information pack that accompanies this session.


Story time – Due to the shelters and traps session being on in the morning, I have moved story time to 1pm today.  I am really looking forward to the next chapter of The Midnight Guardians.


Maths – Today we will be multiplying and dividing by 6.  This will build on our knowledge of multiplying and dividing by 3.  Please watch this video first:

I have attached the maths questions and the answer sheet to this blog post.


Maths fluency – I would like you to spend some time playing Hit the Button and write down your best scores.  Challenge yourself with one of the tables you are not so confident with or do mixed times tables.


ICT – There are 3 tasks set on Purple Mash that focus on the left little finger keyboard skills.  As ever, if you do not have a keyboard, please select your own activity from the computing section of Purple Mash.



Have a lovely day,

Mrs Barter
