Encourage pupils to practise their times tables by clicking on the link below. This will give 10 questions based around recall of the times tables facts.

  • Click on the daily 10 image.
  • At the top of the page, you should see 3 ‘choose’ tabs
  • 1st tab: Choose level 4 (year 4) or level 5 (year 5)
  • 2nd tab: Multiplication, Choose mixed tables up to x12
  • Then you should see a range of question intervals at the bottom of the page…try starting with 7 seconds to begin with.
  • Upload your score to dojo to let your teacher know how you got on.


You could also try selecting division to practice using your knowledge of times tables to solve related division questions.

 White Rose Maths

Note: this week there are separate lessons for year 4 and year 5 children.

Year 4: Multiply 3 digits by 1 digit.

Watch the video below to help you understand the method. Then, create 5 of your own maths questions with a 3-digit number multiplying a 1-digit number, for example 253 x 6. If you feel confident, try a 4-digit number multiplying a 1-digit number, for example 1,293 x 4. Use a calculator to work out your answer.

For fun - if you have a dice at home, you can roll it to create a number.

Year 5: Multiply 2 digits by 2 digits

Watch the video below to help you understand the method. Then, complete the worksheet below. Use a calculator to check to see if your answers are correct.


English: Revolting Recipes

This week, we are going to be creating our own revolting menus (we will write our final versions on Friday). We are going to be creating the most disgusting dishes we can think of and try to make them sound delicious.

To get you in the mood, click on the link below to watch a short clip about Fungus the bogeyman. What disgusting details did you notice?

Watch the video below on how to create an expanded noun phrase, then, using the word bank in the video (if you can't see this, there is also a word bank below attached) create 5 of your own expanded noun phrases that you can include in your own revolting menu. 
Remember: a noun phrase is NOT a full sentence.


RE : How does Dharma influence how Hindus live?

 Click on the link below to go to the oak academy lesson on how does Dharma influence how Hindus live?

Share your score with your teacher on dojo to let them know how you got on.
