Spelling Activity –

Rainbow writing – pick 3 colours and write each letter in a different colour so it looks like a rainbow. If you do not have colours at home, use a pen and a pencil.


SPAG (15 minutes): Homophones recap

Homophones are words that are pronounced the same but have different meanings and are spelt differently.

Example – nose / knows

nose = your nose is part of your face used for breathing and smelling.

knows = to know something means to be aware of it.

Complete the two tasks below.

Writing (45 minutes): To create a newspaper article about your character

Today you are going to continue with your creative cartoon writing. Using your character you created yesterday, you are going to create a wanted poster for it. Your character has committed some bad crimes and has caught the Road Runner. The village people are furious as they love Road Runner and they want to find your evil character. Try and include these features below.

  • Newspaper name
  • Short and snappy headline
  • Write your report in third person (he, she, it, they)
  • Write your report in past tense
  • A picture with a caption
  • Quotes from people who might have seen your animal
  • The 5 W’s in your opening paragraph (where it was last spotted, why it is important you find it, what it looks like, who the article is about and when it was last spotted.
  • 3 paragraphs – opening, main paragraph (most detail about the animal using facts and opinions) and a conclusion.

Look at the example below, they show the features above. Be creative as your possibly can with the language you use and make sure you use a range of sentence types to make it an exciting newspaper article. I have added a template you may want to print out and use but if you can, try and create your own.


Maths Meeting: Investigation (15 minutes)

For your maths meeting today, I want you to investigate this problem I have.

1, 2, 3, 4

Using the digits 1, 2, 3 and 4 and +, – , x and ÷ symbols make the numbers from 1 to 30.

Each of the numbers has to be used every time, for example 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 10 and 1 x 2 + 3 -4 = 1.

Maths: Decimals (45 minutes)

In Maths today, you are going to be multiplying decimals by 10,100 and 1000. Watch the video below and then complete the following tasks.

Task –


Reading Comprehension –

Vocabulary – find the definitions of these words


Retrieval – answer these questions.

Which word could the author have used instead of the phrase ‘every year’?


What was the name of the person who had jailed Saint Valentine on behalf of the Emperor?

Find and copy one word which means the same as ‘to make something look bigger or better than it actually was’.

Inference – answer these questions using full sentences.

What kind of person do you think Emperor Claudius II was? Give a reason for your answer.

Why do you think that people now exchange gifts on valentine’s day?


This week I want you to get creative. I want you to create a parkour course which will be a challenge for you and keep you moving.

The objective is for you to create a constant running course to keep moving!

‘Running’ across the obstacles utilising core movement skills: jumping, landing, skipping, turning, rolling, changing direction. Demonstrating balance and agility.

With practice and repetition the more accomplished and confident athletes will become. They can start to think about how good the movement feels and looks.

How big can you make your course? How quick can you complete your course? Can all of your family complete your course? Watch the video below and try and get the moves into your course.

Well Done

I am proud of your efforts.

Well done,

Mr Farrier.
