Here we go with our first day of online learning:



You were due to do a very important spelling test today that I hope you have been preparing for. You all have an individual sheet in your Yellow spelling folder. Please ask a grown up to to test you on your words.


Any that you still don't know will need to be learnt. These words are very important for all of your work across the whole curriculum. Perhaps you could write out a list and stick them on your fridge. Maybe you could make flashcards for these words. Do you have any other ideas?


Guided Reading

Here's the front cover from our new book. Study it carefully and look at the details in the picture. You will then have some questions to answer.

Here's the blurb from the back of the book:

You're going to love this little girl introducing and reading this book to you:


Vlad and the Great Fire of London Book by Kate Cunningham : Story Time with Zara

Vlad and the Great Fire of London tells the story of one of the most famous events in the history of London. In 1666 the Great Fire destroyed most of the med...

This book will also be really important for our Writing work that we will start next week and will link to PE and Topic too.





Let's start with today's Flashbacks. These are all things that we have done before but doing these Flashbacks helps to keep things fresh in your mind.



Next you can play a game to practice your doubling skills. If you haven't got your red badge yet, stick with the easiest level and try and commit the doubles of 1-10 to memory. Remember x2 is the same as double.

If you already have your Red badge, you can challenge yourself on the harder levels.

If you haven't got your 2 Silver and 2 Gold Awards, practice them now. Remember that x2 is the same as double, so you should have quick recall of these now.

Also, if you know 6 x 2, you also know 2 x 6.

For those of you that have these awards, all of the other times tables awards are saved in the Maths folder on the Home Learning page.

Now have a go at each of these challenges. Just write your answers down on paper.

Scroll down for the answers:



Esin is wrong. Every number in the 2 times table is an even number. Even numbers divide by 2 and end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8.


The missing numbers on Malachi's track are 6 and 10. If he continues his pattern, the 9th number will be 18. This is because 2 x 9 = 18. 9 x 2 also equals 18.


Can you see how you need to explain your answers fully?


4 x 3 = 12

2 x 8 = 16

22 = 11 x 2

26 = 2 x 13

17 x 2 = 34

15 x 2 = 30


Why is the first question the odd one out?


Answer: it doesn't link to the 2x table.


Here are today's worksheets:


Here are the worksheets if you are able to print them out. If not, just write your answers on paper.

What is a monarch?

What do you already know about our monarch?


L.I. To learn about Queen Elizabeth II, the monarch of the United Kingdom.

Which caption would you put with each of the pictures below?

What extra captions could you add for each photograph?

You may want to use this poster writing frame or you can make your own poster on plain paper:

You may want to use some of these photographs or you can draw your own pictures:


Our indoor P.E. work this term is Dance based upon the Great Fire of London. Don't worry, you can still do this at home. Maybe you can get little brothers and sisters involved too.


All you will need to do is play this music file and follow the instructions:


Evaluation time:

What did you like?

Was there anything that you disliked?

How did the dancing make you feel?


Can you describe your dance to someone in your family?


Next week, we'll look at being more inventive with the dance, giving you an opportunity to devise your own movements instead of just following the instructions.

Reading books

I hope you've already read the reading book that you took home before the holidays. If not, please read it to an adult now.


Now would also be a great time to sort out the books that you have at home. Make a pile of the books that you are going to read. Some may be old favourites, whilst some may be ones that you have never read before. If you've got older brothers and sisters, maybe you can raid their collections, too!


Thank you for working so hard today. We would love to see your posters. Take a photo on a parent's phone and send it to me by email at We could put some on this website - how great would that be!?


Bye for now but we'll be back tomorrow with some more tasks for you.


Love from Mrs Stansfield, Miss Bramald and Mrs Rathor
