The Tyrrells School

Aspire, Care, Learn for Life



This week we are continuing with our narrative topic with a focus on Story Endings. After the last two units, you are all familiar with the set up of the Oak National Academy.  Follow the instructions from the video- remembering to pause and complete the activities when asked to. Use the 'next activity' or green dots at the bottom of the page to navigate through.


As it is the start of a new unit, begin a new magpie page to include words of the day, elements of the success criteria and exciting ideas you have magpied.


If you have any questions or technical issues, send us a message wither via email or on seesaw.


This week, we are going to continue to use the spellings featured in our English lesson .  Add two further spellings from the Year 5/6 or Year 3/4 spelling lists to create a list of 10 spellings.


Can you record each of these words in a sentence or all of them in a short paragraph to demonstrate your understanding of their meaning?




Today we will be revising our understanding of percentages using the Hamilton pack. 


1. Re-read the Learning Reminders in the pack. Remember that percentages are when we look at how much we have of something out of 100. The whole is the same 100%. What other percentages can you think of?


If you need to, see the A Bit Stuck section.


2. Choose whether you want to complete the Mild or Hotter Challenge. To complete the Mild Challenge, find the percentages of the shaded shapes given. For the Hotter Challenge, find the percentage as well as the fraction and decimal equivalent.  Remember to mark your answers.


3. Have a go at the investigation using the squared paper given.

Computing - internet safety (15 minutes)

With a grown up - watch Film 3- 'They have fans, but we have friends!' from the 'Think You Know..' website.


After watching the video, use the prompts from activity 1 to discuss the video clip with your adult.

Then complete the task 'Who's Magnus?'  In Alfie’s thought bubble, write down the things that made Alfie feel suspicious of Magnus. Discuss your ideas with your adult. What advice would you give Alfie?


Activity 2: Have a look at the ‘Grandpa George’ task. How Grandpa could use the tablet to solve his problems? Try to be inventive as possible.


Can you think of different ways you and your family use technology positively -how has this changed recently?

Computing - touch typing (30 minutes)

Today we are going to continue with our touch typing skills with the BBC Dance Mat Typing website. If you have been working on your typing skills over the past few weeks, continue from where you finished last time. If you haven't started yet, begin with Level 1.


Level 1 -the home row.

Level 2 - the six  keys above the home row.

Level 3 - the six keys below the home row.

Level 4 - punctuation and the letters x and z.

Each level is split into three parts - ensure you complete each parts of the level before moving on.


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