2. Maths task 1 - White Rose Maths -

How to access White Rose as activity:

* Please go to
* Please click on Week 2 (Not Summer - Week 2)
You will see Lesson 3 – Fractions of a set of objects (2). This is today’s lesson.
* First, watch the video – you will need to have your sound turned on!
* Just watching the video is great! However, if you are ready please click on Get the Activity. This will download a worksheet to complete. You can either print this to complete or you can just discuss with an adult.

3. Maths task 2 - Mathletics – 
I have set some new activities for you to complete on addition and subtraction.
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 top 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- I have seen some great fact files and some of you have put your facts into order already which is fantastic.  Today I would like you to write the last 3 paragraphs of your fact file making sure you have 5 facts per heading. Also I would like you to use some of the conjunctions from yesterday's English task 3 to join your sentences.  For example, The panda can poo up to 12 times a day when it has eaten between 12-38kg of bamboo.  That is my favourite fact can you tell?

So by the end of today you should have a fact file with 3 or 6 headings.
