Good morning! Happy Friday! We are at the end of another week!

Hope you have all had a good week and have done some things this week that were different from the last!

Mrs Powell is attending some training all day today so may not be able to answer 5P’s emails straight away. She will make sure she gets back to you all by Monday. If you have something urgent you need to ask Mrs Hewitt will be able to respond. This weeks gallery will be the work sent through from Mon-Thurs, Friday’s work will go up the following week.

Please check that you have completed ‘My Maths.’

The numbers for TT Rockstars have risen in both classes which is brilliant! Keep up the good work and remember it’s not too late to join if you haven’t already!

Extra Learning:

Mrs Pomeroy has found a virtual tour of the Great Wall of China! This is definitely worth checking out!


Just look at the free version!

Today’s Learning:


Warm Up:


Choose division

This week we have been looking at fractions (addition and subtraction) we have learnt how to add fractions with different denominators.

Another way of adding fractions is by finding the lowest common multiple between the two fractions and using this as the denominator.

Watch this video on how to find the lowest common multiple:

Once you have found the lowest common multiple you can use this to make your denominators the same.

Lets practice finding the lowest common multiple:





Multiply Multiples

In this calculation, each square represents a missing digit:

One possible solution is:

Can you work out some different ways to balance the equation?


Warm Up:

Today you are going to be writing your free verse poem.

You should have a good idea about how you’re going to write and present it and the language you are going to include.

Your poem must include:

  • lots of adjectives
  • similes
  • metaphors (have a look on the internet if you’re unsure – youtube have got some good videos explaining)
  • senses
  • picture

  3. Find half
  4. x20
  5. +100
  6. -56
  7. +20 – 15

  10. _______________ is how many minutes it takes to go on your walk. How many hours and minutes is this? (you may need to take away the decimal for this)


Football Based Ball Skills

Warm up – Full body warm-up.

I have added a link to a full body warm up that’ll take 10 minutes that has pictures to help guide you through the exercises.

Main Activity – With a football or ball like object that you have around the house try to perform all of these drills to the best of your ability. I have attached websites that’ll help learn the correct techniques!

Passing Drill – Find an object for you to hit with the ball and place it 1 meter away from you. Aim to hit the ball using the pass technique. Once you have managed to do that move back 1 meter and continue to do so until you can’t hit the target anymore.

Keppie Uppie Drill – Using the ball see how many keepie uppies you can do. Try to use all different parts of your body!

Heading Drill – With the ball and a target set up get ready to throw the ball in the air and attempt to hit the target using the heading technique. Move further away until you can’t hit it anymore. What was the furthest distance you managed to hit the target from?


Goalkeeper Catching Drill – With a partner or a wall, throw the ball so that is ends up in a place that can be caught by the goalkeeper. The keeper then attempts to catch the ball by any means possible. Can you catch it with only one hand?

Dribbling Drill – With the ball at your feet dribble around obstacles around the house or the garden using both feet trying to keep the ball under control at all times.  

Shooting Drill – Create a target for you to shoot at and get ready 1 meter away from it and using the shooting technique attempt to hit the target. Once you have managed to hit the target move 1 meter back and continue to do so until you can’t hit the target anymore.
