Foundation - Art @10am

It's time to draw-a-long with Rob! The draw-a-long is live at 10am, however the video will be added to the website if you would prefer to draw at a different time.


It is great to see all the different ways you are collating and displaying your 'Draw with Rob' pictures at home. Keep your pictures coming in on seesaw!

English - Balanced Arguments

Our English lesson today is a reading comprehension. There are mixed questions which require fact retrieval, inference and word meaning skills. Take care to read the question carefully and consider which skill is required.


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.


Remember to add to your magpie page as you watch the video.


After completing your task - resume the video for feedback to self mark and edit your work before uploading on seesaw.


This week our spellings are focused on homophones. Can you create a list of 6 pairs of words which sound the same but have different spellings and different meanings? Use your own words rather than the words featured in our spellings.


Today we will be using mental strategies when adding and subtracting numbers close to 10, 100 and 1000. For example if we were adding 99 onto a number. We will be using our number bonds to help us today.


1. Have a look through the Learning Reminders. When we add/subtract 10, 100 or 1000, they are very easy numbers to work with because we only need to make simple place value changes. If we were to add 198 onto a number, we would be making complicated place value changes. Because we know that 198 is only 2 away from 200, we could start by adding 200. After we have done this, it is important to remember that we added too much onto the number because we rounded our number up. Therefore I need to take 2 away. If I was adding 205 onto a number, I would add 200 but then remember that I have not added enough. So I would need to add 5 more.

2. Choose your level of Challenge. If you want to complete the Bit Stuck section, draw number lines to help you see the multiples of 10,100 and 1000 jumps and then what is left over.

3. Have a go at the investigation.


Remember to mark your work before putting it onto Seesaw.

Pupil Passports


During the transition process, your new teacher would have set you a 'getting to know you' activity. This really helps your teacher get to know you before you start in September. This year we would like you to complete this at home. You can choose to complete the normal passport layout, or you may want to introduce yourself in another way. For example, you could write a letter to your new teacher or send them a video message. If you want to upload anything personal, for example a picture of you and your family or a video, please can this be sent to your current teacher who will forward this onto your new teacher.
