Learning Project

The purpose of today’s lesson is to produce a plan ready for our writing.


You will be very used to planning before you write, as this is our normal process in school, but I just wanted to remind you how valuable a good plan can be. If you have a plan to refer back to when you start writing tomorrow, it takes some of the pressure off of your brain because you have less to think about, your ideas and notes are already written on your plan acting as a reminder. Bonus!

Remember, you are not writing today, you are making sure that you are fully ready to write tomorrow. So your plan should be made up lots of notes and key points to keep you on track tomorrow.


Take a look at the below PowerPoint, be sure to put it on full screen so that you can play my audios for more detail.


Below you can find the boxing up plan that you saw in the PowerPoint in both a Microsoft Word format (incase you want to type your work) and in a PDF format incase you cannot access Microsoft programmes.


Please don’t worry if you can’t print this at home, drawing out your own version is perfect!

This is just to guide you =)


You will notice the last section is in blue, this is just there as an additional challenge to think about if you would like it – completely optional.


Feel free to email over your plans for some feedback:

A science experiment

Watch the video of the experiment using chalk and shark teeth in different liquids. Write a prediction for what you think will happen to the chalk left in the water, orange juice and coke overnight. Also write down what you predict will happen to the shark teeth left in water and coke for a week.



Welcome to today’s Maths lesson!

We are continuing with perimeter today but are looking at the perimeter of rectilinear shapes.

Rectilinear shapes are just like compound shapes, which means that they have two separate shapes that are pushed together. The only major difference is that a rectilinear shape is where all the sides meet at a right angle.


Underneath is a video of the work that you are expected to complete today. There are parts of the video where you will need to pause to give you time to complete a short task, once you have completed this you can resume the video to carry on.


There is a task for you to complete, please do not worry if you are unable to print, you can display the sheet on your screen at 100% and the measurements would be the same as if you printed it out out, or feel free to try to draw the shapes yourselves =)


There is also an extension task for you to complete, if you fancy a challenge.


Please email any Maths work that you complete to our usual address:

Here are the answers to yesterday’s Maths work so feel free to check your answers and see any mistakes that you may have made.

Are you able to correct any?

Times Tables

As you know, learning your times tables comes with plenty of practise.

We will ask you to do a times tables test at home each Monday, just like you would normally do at school and let us know your scores. That way we can keep your times tables groups accurately updated.

For today’s session, we are providing you with a board game. If you are able to, please go ahead and print out the game for your times table. You can use anything you like in place of a counter to help you mark where you are on the game board.

If you don’t have a printer at home, please don’t worry, there are some awesome games you can try out here: Times Tables Games for 7 to 11 year olds (

Remember, our aim is to be able to answer each times tables question in less than 5 seconds, so do time yourself to check your speed is there!
