Hello Turing Class!


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 You can also 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 simplify 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 1 – Simplify 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 - questions.


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


Have a look at the image below (you can also find this in the resource section for you to enlarge). 




Read the text below and answer the following questions in your books. 


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’…



  1. Which animal would be suited to working in the health clinic?
  2. Can you give suggestions as to the occupations of the other animals in the picture?
  3. If you could have any job, what would it be and why?
  4. If you could be any animal, what would you be and why?
  5. What problems might they encounter in Animal Town that humans don’t encounter in human towns?
  6. Are there any similar problems that both animals and humans experience?
  7. Would animals be better without humans? Explain your answer. 



The sentence below are very basic. Your task is to re-write them to make the sentences more interesting. 


  1. A lion sat on the van.
  2. A giraffe put his head out through the window. 
  3. The zebra walked across the road. 







LI: To use evidence sources to understand more about the Maya civilisation. 


Turn to the back of your literacy home learning book and write the long date and LI.


Today’s lesson will be about learning the difference types of evidence people use to understand more about the Mayan civilisation. 


Your first task is to read through the PowerPoint in the resource section.  


Once you have gone through the information, complete the ‘Maya Evidence’ activity which is explained in the PowerPoint. 


I would love to see some of your learning. So, if you can, send it to the class email and I can upload it to our home learning page for your friends to see.



TT Rockstars



I would like you to practise the times tables using TT Rockstars or hit the button if you prefer. 


We will be doing another test on Thursday to see if you can beat your previous scores. 


I have put the TT Rockstars grid in the resource section just in case you would like to practise using the grid. 




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.
