Wednesday 22nd April 2020





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 timetables every day. I know this is not always in the table but this must be done daily.


Don't forget to practise your spellings too.


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 multiply and divide by 10, 100 and 1000.     


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 recapping on multiplying and dividing numbers by 10, 100 and 1000.  


Remember that when you multiply by 10, 100 or 1000 the digits move to the left and when divide by 10, 100 and 100 the digits move to the right.


If you are struggling you can draw the place value chart like the one below in your books or on a piece of paper to help you. 



Complete at least one of the worksheets for your independent activity. 





LI: Hulk’s day off – story starter.


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


Today, we are going to write story using the image of Hulk and his dog (the larger image can be found in the resource section).


Hulk’s Day Off 


Life was tough, being the Incredible Hulk.

He had had a tiring week (as per normal), but today was his day off. Walking the dog had always been one of Hulk’s favourite things to do on a Sunday. He could totally relax and put to the back of his mind all of the things that had made him feel stressed during the week.


For years, Hulk had struggled to control his fierce temper and extraordinary strength, but very often things would still go badly wrong. On one occasion, he had become so angry with the traffic lights on his way to work that he had completely crushed the steering wheel. On another, he had punched a hole in the side of his house when trying to swat a fly! Just the other day, Hulk had stumped his toe on the corner of his bed, so had thrown his bed out of the window where it landed on top of next door’s car.


Today he was going to try his very best to not find himself in any embarrassing situations…


Your task today is to complete the story above, remembering to include the year 6 writing and grammar features. Also try to include some of the year 5/6 spellings. 


Try to add three paragraphs. Think about a problem Hulk may come across whilst walking his dog. What happens? How did Hulk resolve the problem?


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







LI: To understand the key ideas of the theory of evolution.


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


Today, you are going to learn about the different theories of evolutions.


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


Once you have gone through the PowerPoint, your next task is to choose one of the scientists from the PowerPoint and write a mini biography about them under today’s date and LI. You can use the information from the PowerPoint or do some research of your own. 


You can set this out however you like in your books and you can draw pictures is you wish.


You must include the following:



>Scientist’s name and years they lived

>What they are best known for

>Key facts


There is also a true or false challenge activity on the PowerPoint.




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.
