3. Maths task 2 - Mathletics – 
I have set some new activities for you to complete on problem solving.
Once this has been completed spend 15 minutes playing in live mathletics (you can access this by pressing the green button on the home screen)

4. Maths task 3 - TT Rockstars -
Complete the sessions set for you. This is now set to 20 sessions a day. Can you beat your best score?

5. English task 1 - Spellings –
This week's spellings are now live. Try some of the games on the website to help you learn your spellings and then take a test. How many did you score?  I will be giving out virtual credits for those super spellers and Rockstars too.

6. English Task 2- This week we will be looking at creating our own story based on a book called The Hodgeheg by Dick King-Smith.  First, I would like you to look at the front cover and tell me:

  1. What you think the book is about?
  2. What can you see?
  3. What does it tell you about the book?

You could do this in 3 columns and list under the headings.

Allow 20 minutes for this task.

Once you have done that, listen to Chapter One of The Hodgeheg and think about who the characters are and what has happened and the setting. Visit to listen to Chapter One only or if you have this book then you can read it.



7. English Task 3- Use the Adverbials from Hodgeheg pdf (bottom of page) for this task.  Underline the adverb or adverbial in one colour in each sentence and then underline the verb it is changing in another colour.


8. Science – This week we will be completing the cornflour slime experiment. This experiment is a bit messy but hopefully lots of fun!

Whilst you complete the experiment I want you to this about and answer these questions:


  1. Is cornflower slime a solid or liquid?
  2. What happens if I apply a force to the cornflour slime, such as tapping it with my fingers or punching it?
  3. If you let your hand sink into the cornflour, can you pull your hand out quickly?


(See the PDF attached at the bottom of the page for the instructions)
