Weekly Work W/B Mon 11.01.21



This week we are continuing with our book "Arthur and the Golden Rope". This week the slides we would use in class are in the resources section. These may, or may not, be helpful to you at home. On some of the slides it says to use your Super Writer sheet. I have not included these in the resources but think back to when we have done the same thing before. What features, language and punctuation will I be expecting to see? 


A video to the story is in the English resources section below. 

It as been pointed out to me that the page numbers are unclear on the video. Below, I have written out a list of time stamps which may help you pause the video at the correct place. laugh


Lesson 1:

WALT: To plan a character description.

Listen to the story but stop at the end of page 13.

Look at the picture of Arthur (In the resources section below) plan some words you could use to describe him. Remember, this is a plan so it does not need full sentences. 


Lesson 2:

WALT: To write a character description.

Today you are going to write a character description of Arthur. Remember to include a description of his personality as well as a physical description. I look forward to reading them.


Lesson 3:

WALT: To read to an audience

Reading to an audience is something we practice doing in school. This time, you can read to your family. Remember your to project your voice and make sure you are reading at a steady speed. If you would like, you can send a video of your performance to your teacher. 


Lesson 4:

WALT: To plan a rewrite

The instructions are on the Lesson 4 PowerPoint (in the resources) to guide you. Remember this is a plan so don't spend time writing long sentences. This is time to practice your note taking. 


Lesson 5:

WALT: To write a rewrite.

This is your time to show off! Show off your writing skills to your family and your teacher. Your rewrite should be a minimum of one A4 page (this is a guide) but remember to write accurate sentences with accurate punctuation. Keep reading through your work to ensure it makes sense and is staying on track.

English Resources:



This week in Maths we are continuing our multiplication and division topic. This has been a long topic but it is so important. One again there are some additional videos from the scheme in the resources section below.


Lesson 1:

WALT: To identify and use the most effective method for multiplication.

This is a very good topic and always generates some debate in class. It is fine to disagree with the methods the scheme gives. In class we always discuss other methods and what works best for us. 


Lesson 2:

WALT: To use written methods for multiplication and division


Lesson 3:

WALT: To multiply 2 digits by 1 digits


Lesson 4:

WALT: to multiply 3 digits by 1 digit


Lesson 5:

Consolidation of knowledge.

Today you have a choice. You can do one or more of the following things:

Go over some of this weeks topics that you have found tricky. Watch the White Rose Maths videos (Link in the resources section) and maybe even check out some Youtube videos or the BBC Bitesize website to help you.


Ask someone in your house to create some questions for you based on what you have been learning this week (This is a good opportunity for you to check their knowledge too! wink)


Go on TT Rockstars. Spend a good amount of time challenging yourself on any of the single player modes. 

Maths Resources: 



For the next few weeks we will be looking at adverbials and moving onto correctly using fronted adverbials. 

Much like the maths, there are slides to work through and then the usual task sheets. Choose your challenge. Don't go for the easiest option. Try to challenge yourself, remember that is how you learn laugh


If you are stuck, there are some great videos online. There is a video below which may help you understand how fronted adverbials help our writing!

PSHE and Well-Being:


Looking after ourselves should always be a priority but even more so in these challenging times. If we don't look after ourselves how can we look after those we love the most and those around us?


Over the coming weeks take some time to enjoy some activities with your family. Many of the home learning tasks are designed to be done with others and this is a great opportunity to spend some time learning together and enjoying each others' company. 


Below are a few activities designed with well-being in mind. 


As with any of the other work, please send us pictures or a few words in an email explaining what you did. Remember, documenting these activities is not the main focus so please don't feel pressured to remember to take pictures just enjoy the time you spend doing the activity
