Friday 5th January


Remember to read for at least 20 minutes at home today. You can also tune into next chapter of The Witches.



Re-watch this video from 1:00 to 3:05:

Walking on the River Thames | Thin Ice | Doctor Who - YouTube

We want you to imagine that this is a video of Samuel Pepys visit to the Frost Fair. Today we are going to write a series of action sentences that tell the audience what Pepys did.

Start by watching Mr M’s learning video in which we model how to create high quality action sentences describing what SP did.

Ideally, I would like you to write a high quality action sentence for each picture. If you are finding this a real challenge, focus on doing 4 or 6 really great sentences, rather than 8 ok sentences.

When your sentences are complete, please send them in so we can give you some feedback and add your work to a class bank of ideas for next week.



Today, I would like you to try these division reasoning problems. They focus primarily on using the dividing by 2, 5 and 10.

Some of these challenges are really tricky, so please do not hesitate to ask for help if you need it.



Number Fluency-

We have set some MyMaths and PurpleMash activities on 3 times tables. Feel free to use your times table number-line to help you answer these questions.


Art and Design-

3D Great Fire of London House

Here is the Learning Objective for today: To use junk modelling to make sculptural forms and improve painting skills.

Resources - cardboard boxes (or card/paper to build your own), tissue paper (or scrap pieces of paper from magazines or newspapers), glue, paint, sticky tape.


Our Friday afternoon challenge is to create a '1666 Great Fire of London House', on fire (!), using your knowledge of the houses during this time period. You could just make one house or you could make a scene as shown in the photo above.

As always we would love to see your designs.
