We would like you to have a go at playing this game to practise your mental multiplication skills.

There are 3 games on here, but we would like you to focus on Multiplication Duel. The explanation for this game starts at 8:08. You can play this game by yourself, but it is more fun with someone else!


Here is a multiplication grid if you need it to help you!






Continue to read our book this week is called ‘The Great Marvello’ and today, we would like you to read Chapter 4 and complete the multiple choice quiz afterwards. This has been set as a 2Do on Purple Mash.


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.


Make sure you are completing your reading record everyday – we will check this when we’re back in school!



Using your phrases that you wrote yesterday, can you write a paragraph to describe the image from our book, Journey? There is a list of success criteria and some examples to help you on the word document.

You can complete the task on the document or print it out and send us a photo of the completed work. It is also been set as a 2Do on Purple Mash, if you wish to complete it online.

Your new computing unit is called ‘Game Creator’. As part of this unit you will be designing and creating your own game. On Purple Mash you have been set a 2Do called Computer Game Planner – this will be complete over the whole unit – not just in the first lesson.


TASK: Think about a theme for your game. Games can have up to three levels and these levels do not have to have the same environment or the same baddies and treasure. Open the game-designing leaflet from your 2Dos. Fill section called ‘Setting the Scene’ and save your leaflet. Do not complete any of the other sections as that we will do another section next week.

We hope you all have a lovely weekend!
