Home Learning – 9.2.21

Who went out the snow yesterday?? Send us in all of your snowy pictures! We can’t wait to see them!

Even the snowy weather doesn’t stop Mrs Hewitt and her running –

After a 8 mile run on Sunday – in the snow – Mrs Hewitt has run over 80% of her challenge! If Mrs Hewitt can keep running this week, she will be finished by next weekend! 


Today’s Learning:


Warm Up:

Today we are going to carry on learning more about Roman Numerals. Yesterday we hopefully learnt some of the main number: 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100.

You have may seen in the video what happens when a number comes just before or after 5 or V.

If the number is just before 5 (V) you can write it like so iV – this means 1 less than 5. If the number comes after 5 you can write it like so Vi (6). This means 1 after 5 so 6. This is also how you can write Vii (7) Viii (8). When it comes to writing 9 you look at writing 1 less than 10 so iX (9)

This works all the way through the numbers until you get to 100. The only exceptions are 40 (XL) 10 less than 50.

Lets have a look at some examples:

15 = XV

19 = iXX (1 less than 20)

23 = xxiii

Here is a lesson to explain further:


Have a go at doing some yourself:

34 =

21 =

56 =

72 =

45 =

65 =

11 =


Research how you may write numbers in their hundreds.


Numbered Cars

I was looking at the number plate of a car parked outside my house – S208VBJ.

Using my special code S208VBJ adds to 65.

4 number plates

They all also add to 65 using my code!

Using the code you treat every character, that is a digit or a letter, as separate.

Numbers are simply added together so that, in the first number plate 208 is 2+0+8=10.

Letters are translated into numbers in an organised and systematic way. That means that if you know the value of F and H you not only know the value of G, but can easily work out all the rest of the alphabet.

Can you crack my code and use it to find out what both of these number plates add up to?

Warm Up:

Yesterday we started answering questions about this picture:

Today I am going to introduce the story starter that you can use:

‘Many years ago, when I was just a small boy, we found a mysterious object washed up on the beach. It was a sort of silver-grey colour, and looked like a finger, only much, much larger.’

The first thing I noticed about this story starter was that it is written in the ‘first person’ this is because it uses words such as ‘I’ and ‘we.’ If you decide to use this story starter you will need to do the same throughout.

I want you to think about what could happen next in your story if this is the start. If you choose not to use this story starter then today you need to write a story starter that you are going to use. This only needs to be a few lines long.

You just need to think of some ‘what happens next…’ ideas. This can be in note form ready for tomorrow when you are going to plan out your story.

My Maths


For art this week you are going to create a mountain or river scene using either sketching, water paint, pastels, crayons, pencils or pens.  The choice is yours.

Here are some videos and images to support and inspire you.  If you are finding it tricky you can watch the video and pause it so you can draw a little then play the video again, draw again and so on…
