Working together for success and happiness

Thursday 25th Feb


Yesterday you read through chapter 10. Today we are going to be summarizing the events in this chapter. You may need to keep referring back to the text to help you. If you made any notes, these will be very helpful too!

Remember, summarizing is where we think about the main events or most important events that take place. Watch the video to remind you of the key skills for summarizing. 


The summary task today is to think about what Avery and Fern get up to during the first part of the chapter. You will then draw three images with captions to summarise what they get up to. Then, you will be summarizing, in your own words what happens in the barn and what 'the explosion' is. There is a sheet below to use.

Today in English, we are going to be looking at the features of a newspaper report in order for you to be able to write yours at the end of the sequence. We will look at how a newspaper is set out and key features to include. 


Follow the teacher talking slides for information on the features of a newspaper and your task. There are two videos to watch. 

Video 1

We would like you to label all the key features of a newspaper, use the template provided (see link below) or just write down the key features and give an example. E.g. Headline - Cousins find 'write' way to find funds. Use the checklist on video 2 to help you to identify all the features. 


For the next few weeks or so we will be focusing on 'Fractions'. 

This morning we would like you to look at: Adding 2 or more Fractions 

Watch the video first. You will need to keep pausing this to have a go at the tasks. 

There are slides too (same as the video) if you need to look at this more slowly and carefully. 


Then, complete the worksheet. Look at the questions on a screen and write your answers on paper. Remember, the later questions are normally problem solving and reasoning questions so give these your best shot. You may need a little bit of adult explanation for these. 

Spr4.7.2 - Add 2 or more fractions



Now we have completed our Science unit on 'States of Matter, we are now ready to move onto our next series of lessons which is 'Living things and their habitats.' You will find a Knowledge Organiser below with lots of useful information to help you with this topic. If you can, print it off and use it for the next 6 Science lessons.


LI: I can group living things in a range of ways.
I can use a range of methods to sort living things e.g. Venn and Carroll diagrams


Use the interactive Powerpoint slides on living things and ways to group them then complete the tasks below. The PowerPoint and all related sheets can be found below the tasks for the lesson.



Use Venn and Carrol diagrams to sort the animals from the picture resource. You can choose to use the headings provided or think of your own characteristics to sort them.

Can you sort living things into 3 categories?


Design a Mrs Nerg poster to help you remember what each letter stands for.
