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 timetables 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 add and subtract numbers. 


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 revisit adding and subtracting numbers – including decimals.  You will also be solving word problems. 


Remember, to solve word problems, you need to read the question carefully to understand what calculations you will need to do. Some question may require you to do more than one calculation. 


Some calculations you might be able to do mentally but others you will have to use a method such as column addition or column subtraction. 





Your task is to answer the questions from either the red, blue or gold worksheet (make sure you complete the correct worksheet).


I know some people will complete this work quickly so there is also an extension worksheet. 


If you are working on red or blue then your extension worksheet with be blue (if working on red) or gold (if working on blue). 





LI: Under the bed – questions and up-levelling sentences.


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. 


Under the bed

The scuttling noise had disturbed Michael, and he’d shot bolt upright in bed. After taking a deep breath, he flung himself onto the smooth wooden boards of his bedroom floor and took a peek…


1. What was the noise that Michael heard?

2. What did he see under the bed?

3. What will happen next?

4. How did he feel when he first heard the noise?

5. How did he feel when he looked under the bed?

6. What time of day do you think it is?

7. Have you ever been frightened of anything?

8. Why do things seem more frightening at night?




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


1. Michael heard a noise.

2. He felt scared.

3. He sat up in bed.

4. He went to the floor.

5. He looked under the bed. 







LI: To learn about the religious beliefs of the Maya people. 


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


Today’s lesson will be about learning about the Maya religion, who they worshipped and the Maya Gods.  


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


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


I would love to see some of your fact files! 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 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. 


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


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




I know PE is not on the list for you to do today however, I just wanted to let you know that Joe Wicks is doing a PE session every morning on his YouTube channel from 9am if you would like to get involved. I’ve copied the link below if anyone is interested.









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