Wednesday 22nd April


At 9am each morning this week, Joe Wicks will be streaming a PE session to keep us all active and moving. It will be a great way to start your day and I am sure your family would love to join in too! If you were having a lie-in, then you will be able to find the session on Joe Wicks' youtube channel and join in at any point!

You can find them here:




Today we are carrying on with Wonder and want you to read pages 204-219 and have a think about the questions below:

1.  On p209, August says, “Did you know the guy who created the Uglydolls based them on me?” What effect does this dialogue have on the reader? (2 marks)

2. On p218, August says to Via, “You just don’t want your brand-new fancy high school friends to know your brother’s a freak!” How does that make you as the reader feel? (2 marks)



Below is an activity for you to complete with this week's spellings.


Below are the two poems we looked at on Monday, they are both based around a colour. With your work from yesterday to help, you can you make a word cloud either about all the different colours you can see like in the poem 'What is pink?' (this one is a bit easier as you can go from one colour to the next) or focus on one colour like in the poem 'What is Green?'. 

Your word cloud should have 10 to 15 ideas coming off the middle title, and each one of those will have hopefully 2 or 3 branches off of that. With either more detail than the first word (e.g. - leaves - vibrant, growing, pointed)  or synonyms/ descriptions of the first word (e.g. - tall trees - towering, looming, ever-growing). 

Tomorrow we will start putting these ideas into lines for our poems. 


Right we are going to start today with a bit of an arithmetic recap so can you have a go at the next arithmetic sheet you took home, should be sheet .2. Hopefully you can remember all our methods, if not Mr Bond is working on some videos for the different methods to go on the website soon. 


Today we are going to continue on our topic of the angles within triangles. What we know already: 

A triangle is a shape with 3 sides and 3 angles and quadrilateral is any shape with 4 sides and 4 angles (these include a square, rectangle, rhombus, etc,).

There are 6 angles: 

  • acute (between 0 and 89.9 degrees),
  • a right angle (exactly 90 degrees),
  • an obtuse angle between 90.1 and 179.9 degrees),
  • a straight line (exactly 180 degrees),
  • a reflex angle (between 180.1 and 359.9 degrees)
  • a full turn/full circle (exactly 360 degrees). 

The angles on the inside of a triangle ALWAYS add up to 180 degrees. If you know some information you can work out the rest. 


We know quite a lot already so this next bit builds on all those things. From previous classes we also know there are 3 types of triangles - equilateral (3 sides the same length), isosceles (2 sides the same length) and scalene (all different). 

Today's task comes from White Rose Maths it is titled Angles in a Triangle -Special Cases  - lesson 3 week beginning 20th April and the video attached with it is really important, so watch that as you have a go at the activity. Mr Bond has had a go at the questions as well.

We were going to do some designing, then some work with clay this half term which is tricky with us all at home so get collecting over the next few weeks as we plan to make some sculptures. Cardboard and flexible plastic bottle will be very useful, we have a couple of weeks to collect those things, so don't panic and no need to go out and buy anything especially for it, just some of the bits that usually go in the recycling. 


Today we are going to be looking at African pots and sketching some of them. Our history work on the ancient Kingdom of Benin is rich in sculpture and art. It was a very important part of their culture, we have attached a few examples below. Today in you pink books, on plain paper or in sketchbooks, if you are lucky enough to have them at home, can you have a go at recreating a few of these examples. Think about your use of pencil like Mr Bottomley has shown you over the past few months, you might choose to use colour or keep it black and white. We would love to see some of your examples, take a photo and email or tweet them to us.
