Daily Zoom


Don't forget we have got our hour-long session on Zoom today, between 12 and 1pm. We will have a look at our reading and writing tasks and check in with our maths work. 


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



Today we have another activity for you to have a go at. Below are this week's words with a few letters missing. Can you fill in the gaps? 


Don't forget spelling shed to help you practice, (we almost got caught by other classes over half term).


(20 minutes) 



We are going to continue to learn about the Blitz in reading today, looking at interviews and recounts of the events, thinking about how it must have felt to people involved. 

Reading books is a wonderful way to help us learn how others must have felt and to help us develop 'empathy' - an understanding of other people's emotions. 

The video (here) also has a writing activity at the end of it, so I would love for some of you to read these out in our Zoom meeting later on. 


(45 minutes)



We will continue our exploration of different areas of SPAG today, focusing on one grammar area - pronouns - and one punctuation area - apostrophes. 

Pronouns are words that replace other nouns, usually to help a paragraph flow and avoid repetitions.

Apostrophes have two main uses: to show where a letter or letters is/are missing (omission) and to show what something belongs to (possession).

Watch the videos here and here and have a go at the activities included. 


(45 minutes)



After a busy day yesterday we only have the one activity to have a go at today. It builds towards tomorrow's lesson so use the video to help you along. 


We are looking at finding pairs of values, ones that make the number sentence true. These are very open questions though and have many possible answers the challenge is to find them in a logical way. 


Watch the video here for a recap of our algebra and how to logically think about solving the problems. 


(40 minutes + ttrockstars)



We thought we would test your investigatory skills today. A bit of an e-safety challenge and game.


Below is a picture 'posted on a social media site' and Natalie's diary from the same day.

Dear Diary,

It was Chanelle’s birthday barbecue party last night. I had been looking forward to it for ages. I don’t go out that much. I couldn’t believe it when she invited me as she’s not really a friend, just someone I know through another friend.

I was a bit nervous because I don’t know many of the people going but it would be better than watching TV at home or seeing what everyone else was doing, on Fakebook.

When I got there I didn’t recognise anyone so I stood by the wall with a can of coke. Some people looked over but I didn’t smile so they talked to others. Then Dani from my history class arrived. I went up to her to ask about the homework we had. She chatted for a bit but looked bored. Some others came over to speak to Dani, they took a photo of us all with their phones and mine too. Then they wandered off . After half an hour, I texted mum to come and get me. I'd had enough. Good thing I got that photo on my phone.


From these two pieces of information can you answer the questions below: 

  • Does what Natalie put on Fakebook match her private diary entry? 
  • What was the party like for her? 
  • What can we learn about her from the private diary entry? 
  • Which do you think is true – the Fakebook post or the private diary entry? 
  • Why didn't she tell the truth about the party on her Fakebook page? 
  • Do other people apart from Natalie do this?


Hopefully this activity shows you have to question and think about what you see on the internet, how things for everyone can be seem from the outside and feel on the inside. We also hope you saw how much information you could get from the smallest post or update on the internet. So with that in mind, detective time. 


Below are clues to the identity of 7 people, you might have to do some research but can you work out who they are?


  1. A British athlete, now retired, this person won a gold medal  for the heptathlon in the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney, Australia. Who is this?
  2. His best friend is a piglet. He lives in a wood and belongs to a small boy. His friends are animals. He loves honey. Who is this?
  3. Born in Pakistan, she survived an attack on her life when she was only 16 years old. She campaigns for women’s rights, especially the right to education. She won the Nobel Peace prize. Who is she?
  4. With no family but some good friends, he magically fought some evil forces in his world. Who is he?
  5. She made hospitals cleaner places and showed that trained nurses and clean hospitals helped sick people get better. She was the founder of modern nursing. She is sometimes called “ The Lady with the Lamp.” Who was she?
  6. Jailed as a terrorist for 27 years, he later led his people. He came from Africa. Who was he?
  7. “Votes for Women !” was her cry. She led a group who chained themselves to the railings outside The Houses of Parliament so that females over 18 can vote in elections today. Who was she?

The answers are at the bottom of the page. 

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. 

And don't forget keep sending in those PE points.
