Daily Zoom


Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We are going to be going through our maths on Zoom today, while having a look at our finished non-chronological reports on pandas. 


We will use the same password and meeting ID as usual.



Today, can you please read chapter 17 of War Horse and then have a go at answering these questions.


  1. What did Joey have great difficulty with on the way to the veterinary hospital? 
  2. How was Joey described when he arrived in the courtyard by the Sargent? 
  3. Why didn't Albert recognise Joey instantly? 
  4. What chance did Albert's friend give him of finding Joey? 
  5. What distinctive features was Albert looking for? 
  6. What do you think happens to Joey and Albert now? 
  7. Define the words below and put them in a sentences:
  • immaculate (p135)
  • afore (p138)
  • impatience (p143)
  • a rougher hue (p144)


(40 minutes)



We are looking at our array of prefixes today and their meanings. 



Have a go at the activity below organising the words into the different prefixes, can you add other words you know as well. 


(20 minutes)



Today we will be completing our first attempt at a Non-Chronological Report.

In order to finish this report successfully, we need to learn how to summarise or conclude effectively. However, before we get onto our conclusion, if you have any more information paragraphs that you need to write or finish, please complete these first.

Once you have done this, watch the video here to learn how to write an effective conclusion. Then plan and write your own conclusion for your panda report.


Once you have concluded your report, I would like you to read through your report in its entirety. What do you think you have done well? What would you like to do better next time? Make any changes you feel would benefit your writing or underline any features you think you have used well, as this will come in handy when we write our next NC Report later on this week. 


Tomorrow we will be starting to think about a new NC Report all about giants and we have an expert guest joining us on our Zoom call tomorrow afternoon!


(50 minutes)



Maths today is practicing the work we did together yesterday, looking at finding percentages of amounts, using this information to find different amounts of numbers. 


We will continue to have a look at these tomorrow and the video is here if you need a recap from yesterday but have a go at the worksheet below.

Outdoor Education


With it being a potentially rainy afternoon (like so much of the last week) we have two activities for you to choose from. Below is a document that has tree Top Trumps cards in. You can use these for a game of Top Trumps or see how many you can find on a walk with your family. If you would prefer to be a bit creative, then how about an arty challenge: using leaves, petals, bark and grass, can you create a more natural version of a Diwali rangoli? Using things you can find around on a walk, make a simple repeating pattern.

If you have worked quickly today and you have zipped through our work and it is all of a good quality, then you can have a look at the In case you finish... section. This is full of ideas that you can do if your grown ups are busy still working or with them when they have finished.
