Today we are going to be looking at multiplying by 8.

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

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 a maths zoom at 10:30am. Please use the link in the email to take part in this.

To finish off our grammar week, we are going to be looking at and recapping prepositions (we looked at this earlier in the year). 

The prepositions we are going to think about today tell us where something is compared to something else.  (under, next to, opposite).

Here is an example sentences - the bed is next to the door. The preposition I have used in next to. 

Have a look at this picture which shows lots of prepositions to tell you where something is. 


Task 1:

Have a look at the picture below. Can you write 5 sentences about the picture below. Every sentence has to include a preposition. 

I have written a sentence to start you off:

There are lego blocks between the rugby ball and the dinosaur. 


Task 2:

Have a look at the 'Missing prepositions' sheet below. On this sheet there are 10 sentences which all have a missing preposition. There is a box of 10 prepositions. You need to put the right preposition into each sentence. Read it carefully and see if the sentence sounds right with the preposition. If it doesn't sound right or doesn't make sense, you might need to use a different preposition. 



If you finish both of the tasks above and would like to do some more, have a go at this:

If you could design your own bedroom, what would it look like? You could have anything you want in there...think sensibly though!! 
Write a paragraph to tell me what is in that room and what it looks like. Here's the catch...EVERY sentence MUST include a preposition!!
See if you can add in some conjunctions (and, but, so, because, which) and adjectives (describing words) too!
I have written a couple of example sentences for you so you know what I mean! (I have underlined prepositions I have used in the sentences.)

In my dream room, there is a huge bed which is underneath the window. Next to the bed, there is a white table and on the table there is a beautiful lamp. Opposite the bed is a table and hanging on the wall above the table is a television. Behind the door there are 3 small hooks which I hang my onesie on because I wear it every morning. 


Topic / DT - Hill Forts:

Yesterday we thought about Hillforts. 

Please look at page 2 of the attached document below to find out some more information about hillforts. 


Using what you have learnt, it would be great if you could build your own hill fort! In school we would have used cardboard and paper mache to create our master pieces, but at home, you have a lot of different options available to you!


You might want to use:

  • Lego (I know lots of you love Lego!)
  • Plasticine
  • Pasta and plasticine (be creative!)
  • Any other crafty materials you have at home
  • If you don't want to build one or don't have some materials at home, why don't you draw a picture and label some of the features!



Today there is an assembly zoom at 2:30pm.
