We will be beginning to think about equivalent fractions today. This is quite a tricky topic, so we will be continuing it after half term too.  

Equivalent means equal to. 

So 2 halves are equal to a whole.

Have a look at the PowerPoint and then have a go at the worksheet. 


Join us in our English Zoom session to work on 'Four in a row' (Unit 8). If you can't make it, please get someone to test you on some 'ay' words from the unit.


Today you are going to be continuing your weather forecast. You will tell everyone what to expect later. This can be really imaginative- it does not have to be real.

Extreme weather ideas:

  • Heat wave
  • Storm  (You could come up with your own name – Storm Heffernan sounds good!)
  • Lightning
  • Tornado ( clouds, strong wind, rain and hail)
  • Hurricane (strong winds and heavy rain)
  • Blizzard (snow, ice and cold temperatures)
  • Floods

You are now going to use the future tense- it is yet to happen.

What do you think the future progressive tense is?

'It will be ……. ing'

For example: it will be raining heavily.

Use the template if you are stuck for ideas. If you have finished, please upload your work to Google classroom. 

We will finish the week with two short sessions:

Sometimes, we can all get upset by small things which can become big things in our minds. For example, if someone is chosen first, it can upset us.

We want to start to realise that some problems are big and others are smaller and can simply be ignored. Problems require different reactions, emotions and solutions based on their size.

We can rank problems on a scale of 1-5. 5 is a very large problem, 1 is a very small problem.

For example:

5. being seriously hurt or ill

4. someone we care about in the hospital

3. getting into a big fight with a brother/sister

2. not doing as well as we would have liked in a test

1. making  a mistake

Even these different problems can put us in different zones. Sometimes when a problem is ranked a ‘1’ we can still be in the green zone!


What happens when you have a red zone response when it was actually quite a small problem?

Task: Think of your own problems and rank them from 1-5. There is a copy of the worksheet below, if you do not have the PSCHE pack at home.


Remember- the size of your reaction must match the size of your problem!
