LO: To read time


In class this week, we would have been learning about time. Try these games:


Using your myMaths login (, complete these activities:

  • Introducing clocks
  • Telling the time
  • Telling the time - quarter to and quarter past


If you are feeling creative, can you create your own clock? This could be using Lego, K'nex, paper or it may be that you decide to decorate a cake!




LO: To plan a story


All of the best stories start with a good plan. We would like you to be thinking of a story which you will write at the end of the week.


Here are some ideas, but you can use your favourite books or films for inspiration too.

Where will your story be set?

  •  Enchanted forest
  •  Abandoned school
  •  A zoo
  • In the deep ocean


Who are your main characters?


What problems will they face in their setting?


How will the problem be solved?


Write your plan in your home learning book.




CLO: To send and receive emails


Your class teachers and TAs are missing you! Can you send an email using your parents/carers email address?


Challenge: Attach a picture of some work – it may even be the clock you made earlier. We would love to hear from you!


Miss Clough and Mrs Cunningham can be emailed on this address:


If you have a message for Miss Ellis and Mrs Haire, we can forward emails to them. It will make their day!

DTLO: To prepare and make a salad.


In class, we have tasted different salads to see which we prefer. I would like you to prepare and make your own salad (or meal) – this can even be a fruit salad. Ask an adult to help you in the kitchen.

Play Number Bond Bubbles on Purple Mash: It has been set as a 2Do. 


Using the digit cards you made yesterday, create subtraction number sentences. Remember the biggest number will need to go at the beginning.

There is also work set on MyMaths - if you have already completed this activity, your mission is to improve your score. 



LO: To write the opening, build up and problem of a story.


You should now have a good idea of what will happen in your story.

Begin to write, making sure your sentences are the best that they can be.


For each part, we expect 5-10 sentences.


Remember to describe your characters, setting and problem in great detail.


There is a fantastic story writing tool on Purple Mash, should you choose to publish your writing online. It is called '2create a Story' and is in your 2do list. 


Alternatively, you can use your home learning book. 


RE LO: To create an Easter Card showing new life.


It is very close to Easter – make a card using paper and craft material. Think of all the new plants and animals starting their life, try and include one of these living things on your Easter card along with a caring message.

Draw your own multiplication flower, like the one below.

Ask a parent/carer to record you completing the challenge and send it to your teacher.
