Visit www.mymaths.co.uk and complete the activities which have been set by your class teacher this week. Please refer to the letter you received from your teacher for login instructions. (A copy of that letter is available to view below.) It was great to see lots of you logging on last week - well done! Remember, you can complete the online homework more than once, so keep going!

 

TTR

Keep practising your times tables by regularly visiting the Times Table Rockstars app or website - https://ttrockstars.com/. Your teacher has set you tables which are appropriate for your year group. We are really happy to see how many of you logged on last week. Challenge yourself further this week - can you improve to the next level?

English

Language and Literacy

Please complete Units 3 and 4 of your Language and Literacy Homework books. If you need help with any of the pages, your parents could always use some of the useful website links at the bottom of this page to find websites which may be able to support you. 

 

Writing

This week you could have a go at the information text on your writing task grid. You can decide what the subject matter is, but if you need some inspiration you could write about your favourite topic so far this year, a wonderful holiday destination, a hobby or about somebody that inspires you. You could add your own illustrations, diagrams and a catchy title! Have fun!

 

There are also some useful links below to websites for additional activities, or you could log in to Flash Academy. 

 

Last week, we asked you to complete The Mystery of the Stolen Space Food. Well done if you found out that the space food thief was Rocket! This week, complete The Riddle of the Swapped Signs SPaG booklet. The final answer will be revealed on here next week. Good luck!

 

Reading 

You also have your library book to read whilst you are off. Try and do a little bit of reading each day. This might not always be your reading book - you could always read the Newsround website, information texts or old sports match reports. 

 

Take a look at your Reading for Pleasure grid and choose a few activities to complete. Could you design a piece of Art to go alongside your favourite chapter of the book you are reading? You could display it in a window to showcase to people and promote your book.
