Aspire, Care, Learn for Life



Well done to everyone who learnt and tested themselves on their spellings last week.

If you had any errors from last week, these are the first spellings on your list for this week.  Choose words from either the Year 5/6 or Year 3/4 word list to create a total of 10 spellings.

If you got all your spellings correct last week, congratulations.  Choose 10 new spellings for this week from either the Year 5/6 or Year 3/4 word list.

Once you have identified your 10 spellings, write a sentence using them in context to demonstrate you understand their meaning.  Remember to show your chosen words by underlining them. 


This Friday (8th May) marks he anniversary of 75 years since Victory in Europe Day.  Due to this anniversary the annual May Bank Holiday was moved this year from the first Monday of May to Friday 8th May. Official celebrations had been planned both nationally and locally.


To find out more about VE Day, we have a reading comprehension task for you.  Remember to read the text carefully and refer to the text when answering questions - it is not a memory test! Try to include quotes to support your answers.


There are 3 challenge levels to choose from with differentiated  texts and questions - look for the stars at the bottom left of the pages which indicate the challenge level. Make sure you use the same star number text for the questions you have chosen. Only choose one activity. * is the easier level task, ** is the middle level and *** is the harder task.  Answers are provided at the end of the pack for you to self assess.


Today we would like you to convert metric units of mass. It works very similarly to converting metric units of length. There are still 1000g in a kilogram. The major difference is that we don't typically use centigrams. They do exist but you are not very likely to refer to them. Because they still exist, we cannot forget that there must be a lot of mgs in a gram. If there are 10 mm in a cm and 100cm in a metre, there must be 1000mm in a metre. This also applies to mass. 10mgs in a cg and 100cgs in a gram, this means we need to multiply or divide by 1000. Copy the poster shown below out to help you if you need to. 

Computing - Internet safety (15 minutes)

With a grown up - watch the video from the 'Think You Know..' website.  Only watch the first video - 'Block him right good, Alfie'.  This is the same video clip as last week. Today's task builds upon your discussions from last week.

After watching the video, use the prompts from activity 1 to identify how Alfie has kept himself safe online.

Activity 2 focuses on positive things to say to others online rather than negative or unkind comments. Discuss with your grown up what is acceptable / unacceptable online.  Then complete activity 2.

Computing - touch typing (30 minutes)

Being able to type your work quickly and accurately on a computer keyboard is a vital skill.  Use the link below to access touch typing sessions. There are four levels to work through over a period of time. Each level is split into three stages. If you began this last week, continue from where you finished last time.

If you haven't started yet, begin with level 1 - to remind you which fingers should be used for the letters in the home row. 

Work through at your own pace, focusing on using the correct finger for each letter.  Try to use the activity for 30 minutes.
