Wednesday 29th 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.


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 decimal 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  build on yesterday’s learning b adding and subtracting decimal numbers. 


When adding and subtracting decimal numbers using the column method, it is important that the numbers are in the correct column and the decimal point does not move. 






Complete all the questions on the worksheet.





LI: Under the bed – senses map.


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


Today, we are going to create a senses map (like we did with The Arrival) using the image of ‘Under the bed’. This will help you with your writing tomorrow. 


Draw the grid in your book – you might want it to cover the full page so you have enough space to write your ideas. 


Imagine you’re Michael in the picture and fill in the boxes. You can write in bullet points if you wish. You can also add some words that you would want to use in your writing tomorrow. 


I have put some ideas in to help you. Remember these are my ideas and it does not have to be a monster under the bed like mine.  



What can Michael see?



A terrifying monster under the bed. 


What can Michael hear?



Heavy breathing.

What can Michael feel/touch?



The breath against his cheek when looking under the bed. 

What can Michael smell?





How is Michael feeling?



Panic-stricken (hyphenated word)








LI: To identify evidence for evolution from fossil records.


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


Today, you are going to learn about fossils and explain how a living thing has changed over time.


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 create your own fossil record. This activity will be explained on the PowerPoint.  






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 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.
