Better Together

Monday, 11th January

Good morning Kingfishers,

I hope you all had a restful weekend. Below are the learning tasks for Monday.

Spellings: Rule 19: ‘sure’ or ‘ture’ suffixes

Use the powerpoint below to explore when the ‘sure’ or ‘ture’ suffixes are used. Can children explain when to use each suffix?


Daily 10

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.

If you would like a change of game, 'Hit the button' is also a great, fun way to practise times tables, which is also on the TopMarks website.

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

Maths: Multiplication

For our maths learning, we will be following White Rose maths of 'multiplying 2-digit numbers by a 1-digit number'. In order to show the children how to do this using the grid method, I have created a video tutorial. Please watch this first and then answer the questions which are at the bottom of this page named 'Maths - multiply 2 digit by 1 digit'. There is a multiplication square for support with times tables attached to this sheet. You may complete whichever box of questions that you feel most comfortable with.

Here is the link for the video tutorial:

Make sure you photograph your work to send it over Class Dojo.

Reading comprehension:

Within your packs that you have collected from the office, there are lots of printed reading comprehension sheets. These all follow the 'VIPERS' style questions, which you are all familiar with by now. Please let me know the stage number and title of the sheet so that I can send you the answer sheet to mark. You will need to complete two of these sheets a week and read, either to yourself, family member, pet etc, for the other 3 days a week. Your reading minutes will still count for when we return and you can still be earning reads for your next badge! 



These interactive lessons are from the natural curriculum website. Clicking on the links will take you to the relevant webpage. Note there is a separate lesson for year 4 and year 5- if you have 2 children in different year groups, just select either year 4 or year 5 for children to complete. The children need to work through each of the 4 parts (see the tabs at the bottom…1- Learning objective, 2- The Grammar bit, 3- Whiteboard challenge, 4- Writing ideas.) There is a downloadable worksheet on the writing ideas page for children to complete, which you can also find at the bottom of this page. This can be printed for children to work on, or alternatively children could write their answers on paper/in a book.

Show your teacher how you got on by uploading a photo/screenshot of your work to your profile on class dojo.

Year 4: Fronted adverbials

Year 5: Fronted adverbials


 Art: Pablo Picasso

Learn about the famous and influential artist Pablo Picasso by going through the powerpoint below. Then it’s time to get creative!!! Can you try to create your own cubist portrait in the style of Picasso? You can use the changing faces sheet below (Picasso Changing faces word document) to help generate the shapes for your cubist face. Don’t forget, Picasso used bright, bold colours, so you will need to as well. I can’t wait to see some of your portraits!  


Spanish: Languagenut

Click on the link below to log onto your account on language nut. (You will need your login details). Instead of setting any work for this today, I would like you to explore the website to re-familiarise yourselves. Feel free to play any of the games and start earning badges. From next week, we will turn it back in to a competition to see who earns the highest score for that week.
