Working together for success and happiness

Wednesday 27th Jan


Today we are predicting! This week we are focusing on events in chapter 6! 

LI: To make predictions based on a text 

Page 47: 

“A rat is a rat,” said Charlotte. She laughed a tinkling little laugh. “But, my friends, if that ancient egg ever breaks, this barn will be untenable.” 

“What’s that mean?” asked Wilbur. 

“It means that no one will be able to live here on account of the smell. A rotten egg is a regular stink bomb.” 

“I won’t break it!” snarled Templeton. “I know what I’m doing. I handle stuff like this all the time."

He disappeared into his tunnel, pushing the goose egg in front of him. 



Let’s imagine that Templeton’s rotten egg DOES break. Write the part of the story where this happens. Think about how it gets broken, who does it, how the animals react and how they solve the problem.  

You can be as creative as you like and even include speech. This needs to be just a paragraph long. You could also add an illustration of the egg cracking and the animals all involved! 


In English today, we will be continuing our new writing sequence... MARY POPPINS

This will all lead up to writing a diary entry as though you have spent the week with Mary Poppins herself! 

We will begin the sequence like we always do, by developing and learning all of the vocabulary to do with our topic. 


Begin by watching the two videos again. As you watch, gather all of the words the children use to describe the nanny they would like. Then, follow the slides. This helps give you more vocabulary. 


Your task today is to create a NANNY WANTED poster. This should include a picture of Mary (which you can draw) and a description of what Mary is like. Write this as a short paragraph but aim to include as much of the vocabulary about Mary as you can!

We have now come to the end of our blocks on 'Multiplication and Division' and 'Area'. Before we move on to the next block, we think it is important to do some revision and consolidation of everything covered so far this term. 

For the rest of this week, we will be giving you some sheets that have a range of questions covered in these two blocks. 

Here are a few tips to help you on your way:

  • Use the methods looked at in that block
  • Draw out or use counters to help with multiplication and division
  • Use any equipment you have at home to help you e.g. coins, sweets, Lego etc.
  • Use a multiplication grid to help with any times table questions 

Remember, these sheets are to help you practice and revise what we have covered so it's all to help you on your way! 


Today, we'll be looking at multiplication and division part A again. Complete the booklet below and then mark it to see how far you've come this term already! The answers are on the last page of the booklet. 


This weeks lesson is looking at historical mining in our local area. 


LI: identify historical mining areas in local area 


The plan was to take children for a local walk to the memorial in Clowne. You may still wish to do this as part of your daily exercise. If you want to take some photos and upload them to dojo's that would be great, we would love to see them! Don't feel you have to stick to doing this lesson when it states feel free to do this anytime during the week. 


 Here are some websites to support this focus: 


If you want to do a writing task there are some questions you can do. Have a look at the link below this will help you to answer the questions.
