We are doing a maths zoom at 9am. Please use the link in the email to take part in this. 

Today we are going to be recapping our new multiplication method.

If you were unable to join the zoom, click on this link to watch a video on this topic:

and work through the powerpoint below before you try to complete the worksheet. 



We are doing an English zoom at 10:30am. Please use the link in the email to take part in this. We will discuss how to turn your notes into a paragraph. 

Today we are going to write paragraph two of our diary entry. 

Make sure you have your plan out in front of you when you are writing - plans are made to help you!

Success criteria: 

  • Adjectives
  • Adverbs (ly words)
  • Conjunctions (and, but, so, because, which)
  • Time connectives (next, later on, then)
  • Prepositions (behind, in front of, next to, behind, opposite)
  • Capital letters and full stops
  • Interesting sentence starters


See below for some magpie words (words you can use in your writing). 



We are going to start off by looking at how magnets react. Magnets have 2 ends. We call these ends poles.

On magnets, there is north pole and a south pole. 


If you put a north pole and a north pole together, they will push away from each other. We say that they repel (push away).

If you put a south pole and a south pole together, they will also repel. 

If the same poles are put together, they repel. 

If we put a north pole and a south pole together, they will pull together and join. We say they they attract

If different poles are put together, they attract.

We are going to move on to see how different objects move differently along different surfaces. 


Your job:

  • Choose a few different surfaces (carpet, wood, tile, something shiny, whatever you have in your house)
  • Choose a few different objects (toy car, paper, a book, a lego piece, whatever you want!)

You need to push each object on each surface and see which moves the quickest.

For example - push all your objects along the carpet. Which object moved quickest/slowest on the carpet?


Rank the objects from the fastest to the slowest. 

Think about: 

Which object moves quickest on each surface?

Which is the slowest on each surface?

Which surface does each object moves the quickest on?
