Maths – Would you rather

You are going to continue to learn about decimals, fractions and percentages this week.   White Rose Maths has put together a great home learning pack on this which can be accessed through this link:


We would like you to complete lesson 1 step 6 today – rounding decimals. Watch the clip about this learning then answer the questions in the activity section.

The answers are also available so you can check your work once you have completed it – no peeking before you have completed the questions!



We have set you a book to read on Purple Mash as a 2Do. We are going to read a chapter each week and complete some learning about it each day.

Our book this week is called ‘How to catch a beast’ and today, we would like you to read chapter 1 and complete the multiple choice quiz afterwards.

Remember to look at the underlined words as you read the text. These are words you may be unfamiliar with and if you hover over the word, it will tell you its meaning.




Watch this short movie called ‘Taking Flight’.

Create a story board of the movie, picking out the main points. Make sure you add a short sentence about each image.

Can you include speech bubbles in your storyboard?




Complete the 2Do – What is your ambition when you are older?



Can you find all of the colours in the wordsearch? Can you write the names of the colours in English too?
