Maths (Zoom at 9:00 AM)

Today, we will be dividing 2 digits by 1 digit. 

When we divide, we can share our place value counters equally between groups. Like this: 

However, sometimes, they don't fit equally and we must exchange. It will look something like this:

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


Have a go on Nessy spellings. The link is below. If you need any extra support accessing this website, please let me know.

English  (Zoom at 10:30 am)

Today we will be recapping what we have learnt so far this week. 

Top tips: 

  • You always need a capital at the start of speech 
  • You must have punctuation before closing speech ( this is normally , ! ?) 
  • If you don't have to say who said the sentence you can have a full stop at the end. 


Have a look at the worksheet and see if you can work out what has gone wrong in each sentence.  The answers are below for you to check.

Science  (Zoom at 1:00 PM)

There are about 9 million different living things on Earth & they are all named!  It is hard to imagine that many things! All species are different, though some can be very similar to other species.

To which species do children think that humans are closest? ...... Chimpanzees, closely followed by gorillas.

Show pictures on the board. Is this a bird, insect, invertebrate, mammal, reptile? (Recap on the meaning of these words using communicate in print)

Animals have to be grouped.

Basic Types of Animals and Their Characteristics

This is like a library of books – if all the books were randomly displayed on the shelves it would take a long time to find the one you are looking for!

The groups are however still too big (about 7.8 million animal species) so they have to be sub-divided. Animals are split into vertebrates & invertebrates. (Invertebrates have no backbone (spine) & vertebrates do.) There are far more invertebrates than vertebrates!

Vertebrates are split again into fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds & mammals. Animals can also be grouped in other ways, e.g. cold-blooded creatures include invertebrates, fish, amphibians & reptiles (their body temperature is tied to their surroundings & some bask in the sunshine to warm up), & birds & mammals are warm-blooded animals.

Task: Try to organise the animal flash cards into the Carroll diagram. If you can't print, you can easily draw or write the names.

Challenge: Can you think of any more animals which would fit into these groups?

There is a blank Caroll diagram if you would to think of your own categories for the Caroll diagram.
