Y45 Home learning – March

Hello All,

Unfortunately, due to the new government lockdown, we now have to go back to home learning. However, this time you may contact your class teacher for support if required – whenever you need it to continue your learning, ready for returning to school – hopefully soon!
You will be sent home learning to your school email each day (which will also be on the class web pages) by a member of the Year 4/5 team (Mr Milfull, Mr Lai and Mr Morrell). We would like you to complete this and send it back to YOUR class teacher for marking.
We will be contacting your parents if we do not receive any home learning from you multiple days in a row. Teachers will be available to contact for support from 8.30am until 3.30pm daily.
Please send home learning to:
Here is a copy of the Spring 2 parent flyer so you aware of what your child is/ will be doing in school:
Here are copies of the Year 4/5 weekly spellings for your children to carry on learning as they would in school:
Please note: Home learning will appear on the page below in reverse order with the latest learning appearing directly below.
Monday 1st March 2021
Good morning all,
Hopefully our last week of home learning! Let’s have one last big push to get through this week!

The answer to last Friday’s riddle:

What has a head but never weeps, has a bed but never sleeps, can run but never walks, and has a bank but no money?
A river!
Here is the riddle for the day…
The more of this there is, the less you see. What is it?
Please find today’s home learning attached.
Guided Reading:
Our guided reading for this half term will centre around our DT topic (The Firework maker’s daughter). You will be looking at it in literacy and guided reading most days.
Look through the guided reading PowerPoint on The Firework Maker’s Daughter and complete the activities/questions for Monday ONLY! There are 6 questions today.

The videos of Mr Milfull reading The Firework Maker’s Daughter chapter 1 and 2 can be found here if needed.

A copy of the text is also attached.
SPAG activity:

Please find attached sheet ‘Monday’s math recap’
The main activities for today’s maths lesson are attached above. Both year groups will be looking at rounding. Please find the resource attached. It is the same for both year groups. Start on the section you usually start on and move on to the next one if you are finding the task easy!  If you are in year 4 start on section A today and see how you do.
Here is a video by Mr Lai to help you:
Maths challenge/extension:
Rounding to the next 10/100

Remember these extensions are optional and DO NOT need to be completed. There are 3 optional sheets. The first sheet is the easiest with the third sheet being the hardest.

In Literacy, this week we will be continuing our work on The Firework Maker’s Daughter.
Today you will looking at what a letter of complaint should look like and what a bad one looks like!
Here is a video by Mr Mifull that you will need for today’s lesson:

(The video says Friday but is for today)

The end of the video cuts a bit short but it is still clear what we would like you to do today 🙂 Read the letter of complaint bad example then match up the statements with the formal (good) version and the informal (bad version)
E.g. Dear Sir/Madam = Dear Idiot in charge

Today’s science experiment will be all about separating solids and liquids. Please see the information sheet and PowerPoint attached above. Don’t feel you have to do all of the experiments. We look forward to hearing/seeing your experiments – we welcome pictures! 😄


Continue with Mrs Dale’s French work (PowerPoint) from where you got to last time. Remember only complete a couple of the slides at a time, you should have a few left!


Tropical World Escape Room!

Outdoor learning:

There are some excellent activity ides above for all the family in the garden, outdoors and at home (scroll down to see these). A big thank you to the parent who shared this resource! 🙂


Daily reading:
We will now be doing daily reading (by the lovely Mrs Dale) please listen along to the story and let us know what you think! You don’t need to listen to all of each clip each day. They can be broken up and just listen when you can 🙂
Reading can be found on our website by following this link:



Remember to keep practising your daily spellings, doing Times table Rockstars and completing accelerated reader quizzes! We can see who is completing quizzes and doing Rockstars on our teacher pages! 😎

Kind regards

Mr Morrell
