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 compare and order 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 ordering and comparing fractions. We will use the White Rose Home Learning again. 


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


I would like you to complete Summer Week 3, Lesson 2 – Compare and order fractions.


Just like yesterday, watch the video first – it will talk you through ordering and comparing fractions. Then answer the questions (you can find a copy in the resource section). 





LI: Animal Town – verbs and adverbs. 


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


Today, you are going to use verbs (action words) and adverbs (words used to describe the verbs) in sentences to describe what the animals in the picture below are doing. 



Read through the PowerPoint then write sentences to describe the following animals in the picture. Remember to add a verb and an adverb to each sentence.


  1. Lion
  2. Giraffe  
  3. Zebra 
  4. Bear 
  5. Meerkats 
  6. Parrot 







LI: To understand how adaptations can result in both advantages and disadvantages. 


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


Today, you are going to build on your knowledge of adaptations – looking at both the advantages and disadvantages.


Your first task is to go through the PowerPoint (found in the resource section). 


Once you have gone through the PowerPoint, your main activity is to match the advantages and disadvantages to the correct adaptive traits which is explained in the PowerPoint.  


You do not need to guess the advantages and disadvantages as they are already on the worksheet for you to sort. I have done the first one for you.


You can draw the pictures or cut them out and stick them in if you want to but don’t have to.  






Practise this week’s spellings in your spelling book or your literacy home learning book. 




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.
