Good morning everyone!


See the table below for today’s learning. 


Just a reminder that it is really important that you continue to read and practise the times tables every day. I know this is not always in the table but this must be done daily.


Remember if you don’t have a home learning pack you will need to complete the work in your own notebook or on a piece of paper. 


If you have any learning-related questions email me on I would be really good to see some of your learning so if an adult allows you to, you can send me pictures of your learning or things you have been doing whilst at home – I will be putting these on the website.

LI: To add and subtract fractions. 


Write the date, Roman numeral date and the LI in your maths home learning book (or on paper if you do not have a home learning pack). 


Today, you will be revisiting simplifying fractions using White Rose Home Learning. 


Click on the link below to take you to the White Rose website.


I would like you to complete Summer Week 3, Lesson 3 – Add and subtract fractions.


Watch the video first – it will talk you through simplifying fractions. Then answer the questions (you can find a copy in the resource section). 





LI: Animal Town – writing. 


Write the long date and the LI in you literacy home learning book or on a piece of paper. 


Today, you are going to do some writing based on Animal Town. 


Look at the picture again and read text below.  



Animal Town 

Most visitors are a little shocked (to put it mildly) when they arrive at Animal Town. Despite the fact that the name of the town five a slight indication to passers-by that the inhabitants of the town are ‘not normal’, it’s as if people don’t believe things until they see the with their own eyes!


Once you get used to being in Animal Town – or so they say- seeing an orangutan behind a desk in a sheriff’s office and upholding the law to an impeccably high standard becomes relatively ‘normal’…



Imagine you are a visitor in Animal Town. Describe your experience in 3-4 paragraphs.


I have put some literacy support documents in the resources section to help you. 


I would like you to try to include the following:

  • Paragraphs
  • Description 
  • A variety of sentence structures (2A, commas for list, semi-colon)
  • Relative clause 
  • A variety of punctuation (question mark, explanation mark, comma, hyphen)
  • Parenthesis 
  • Year 5/6 spellings 



Once you have finished, read through your writing and make any corrections and improvements in a different coloured pen. I have put the year 5/6 spellings and self-editing checklist in the resource section to help you. 


I would love to read your writing, so send them to the class email mail





Go through the learning on travel and transport on the BBC Bitesize website. The link is below.





Below is a link to some computing activities that you might like to try. There are learning together activities, mini missions and interactive learning games for you to have a go at.


You can also access hour of code if you prefer. 



TT Rockstars


I have put a copy of the TT Rockstars grid in the resource section.


Print out the grid or draw it in your maths home learning books. 


Can you beat last week’s score?

Test yourself, take a note of the time and send me your scores.


We will do another test next week to see if you can beat your score! 




I know PE is not on the list for you to do today but I’ve copied the link below if anyone is interested in taking part.










You can send your completed learning to the class email for it to be marked and to receive feedback.
