I miss the smiles and laughter that comes through our classroom! I hope you are all enjoying your time at home with your families.
Below are fun activities to complete as part of your home learning. I'm particularly excited about this week's science. It's an interesting one. Let me know what you think it is on our class story on Class Dojo.
'Rome wasn't built in a day' so just do your best. Take this time as an opportunity to spend time as a family to learn together and develop further life skills such as cooking, sewing, planting, knitting, creative activities which focus on developing fine motor skills such as cutting and sticking, board games for problem solving. The list is endless! Check back weekly for regular updates for activities to complete.
We are unable to provide paper copies of work at this time due to social distancing and lock down restrictions. Please complete any work using paper and pen or via Class Dojo app. Thank you!
In Espresso, you can pick an English, a maths and a topic subject each day - learn something new! Check out the KS2 daily challenge to help you with this.

Hopefully, last week you should have revised multiplication and begun learning how to use the written method for division. This week, continue to practise division so that you become more fluent with it.
(Log in to espresso. The videos will show you how to do this and then you can complete the activities linked to division. Don't forget to keep practising your times tables through TTRock*)

Spot the four mistakes in this sentence.
the roof ov the yellow house wos ripped off by the enormous troll
Thump! He slammed his enormous, grass-covered foot into the middle of the road, sending shockwaves of dust in all directions.
With a loud grunt, the troll wrenched the entire, fully tiled roof off a nearby holiday home, with the owners peering helplessly and frightened out of the downstairs windows. He didn’t mean any harm, but he just couldn’t help himself…
These sentences are ‘sick’ and need help to get better. Can you help?
The troll put his hand on the house. He had a nose and teeth. He was covered in grass.
(Try to use a subordinate clause or a front adverbial)
What do you think the troll is thinking?
Do you think he is a mean or a kind troll? Why?
What are the people doing when they have seen the troll?
Would you try to catch him or talk to him?
Where do you think the troll has come from?
What do you think the rope around the troll’s waist is for?
Where do you think the troll lives? Can you draw or describe what you have imagined?
Science: I Spy (Zoom in, Zoom out).
Below are 5 images of a familiar object. Each time you scroll to a new image, the image zooms out. Can you work out what the image is? Share your ideas on Class Dojo and see who has the closest guess. Check back at the end of the week to see if you were right.
Use your observational and reasoning skills to work out what the image is showing.
- What do you think the image is? Why?
- What does the image remind of you?
Each time you scroll to a new picture:
Can you describe the colours, textures and shapes that you see?
What do you think the image is now? Why? Have you changed your mind?

This free educational tool gives your child the opportunity to code and create their own game. Much of this is problem solving - if their character doesn't move in the way they want it to, or look the way they need it to, they have to re-evaluate and re-code the programme. Highly interactive and very well thought through for children.
Below are Home Learning packs relevant to our year groups in Teyr. Included are a variety of activities for maths and English. We suggest children complete 3 maths a week and 1 English a week.
The parent guidance and answer document provides you with all the answers. FYI - the stars in the bottom left hand corner of each activity refers to the level of challenge.
