Week Beginning 30th March

Maths Daily Tasks:

1) There are some maths games attached below for you to try playing. Some of them need equipment that you will hopefully have at home. If you don't have any dice or a 100 square, why not make one of your own? Hope you have fun playing with an adult or your brother/ sister at home.

2) MyMaths

3) Purple Mash 

There are two different 2Dos on Purple Mash for you to try. One is about designing your own dice game. Think about a game that would help you and your friends practise something that we have been doing in maths. You could even make your game and play it at home. The other is The Sequence Snake! See if you can direct the snake to eat the next number in the pattern!

4) Spider Maths - try making your way across the spider web adding or subtracting as you go. Design your own web too if you want to!

5) Adding and taking away word problems - have a go at solving the dog problems and then write your own bus problems. How many people are there? How many get on or off? How many are left?

Send a video to your teacher on Dojo of you acting out the word problems with your toys if you would like to!

English Daily Tasks:

Pencil control and handwriting activities can be found below. There is also a high frequency word mat which children can use to help them practise their spellings. Also, see the attachments below for this week's English daily tasks. 

Reading Daily Tasks:

Please read with your child on a daily basis and ask them lots of questions about the events, characters or facts. 

Topic daily tasks:

This week in topic we are going to be learning all about narrow boats and canals. Did you know the first narrow boat was used to transport goods before cars and trains were even invented? Enjoy watching this week’s video and finding out more amazing new facts.

1.)   In the attachment below you will find a PowerPoint presentation about narrow boats and canals. It would be fantastic if you could click the link below and watch the video of William Whiskerson, as he heads off on a learning journey along the Worcester canal.

2.)  Can you make a fact sheet about narrow boats and the types of activities you can enjoy on these trips and breaks away? You can share all of your new learning and activities on your Class Dojo.

3.)  Design your own narrow boat and include some of the beautiful folk art found on narrow boats. Use the photos from the PowerPoint to help you.

4.)  Can you follow the instructions, using the attachment below to make your very own origami boat? Make a second one, and before you start folding, colour in both sides of the paper using a wax crayon…. When finished, pop them both in some water… what did you find out?

5.)   Lego challenge… can you build a narrow boat that can float?


Don’t forget to sign into Purple Mash and have a go at this week’s activities where we have included some extra phonics and spelling and grammar challenges.

Coding, ICT:

This week we have added a new coding activity on purple mash for the children to explore. Make sure you watch the tutorial videos to help with each of the tasks. Enjoy!
