Mrs Bennett's Challenge


For my challenge this week, I would like you to create a maze. Look at the images below for some inspiration. The more items you add, the more difficult your maze becomes. You could use cut up section of straws or small pieces of card or paper to create the maze. For the ball, you could use a dried pea if you haven't got anything else. When you have completed your maze, take a photo and send it to your teacher good luck!

This week's online learning:


Monday 13th July 2020


LO: to understand numbers and the number system.

Please follow the link through to the Home Learning from the Lancashire Maths Team. Normally I break up the week and give individual daily links to tasks. The team doesn't seem to be releasing the tasks before the start of the week. Talking to families this week you'd rather have the main link and follow the days! So here is the link:


Please head over to and complete any of the remaining tasks set.


LO: To write a newspaper report.

Follow the link, work through the tutorial and complete the activities. I'm sure you'll enjoy finding out about Rosa Parks.


Topic - Computing 

LO: To be use online conferencing applications.

Please join in our Zoom transition session scheduled for 11am (3R) and 1pm (3W). You will be able to meet your new teacher.Your grown-up has been sent the details via text.


Tuesday 14th  July 2020



LO: To understand numbers and the number system.

See Monday.



LO: To write instructions.

George's Marvellous Medicine is one of my all time favourite books. Follow the link to work through the tutorial and complete the activities.


Topic - PSHE

LO: To design the best class.

Recently most children haven't been able to go to school. Imagine you have been tasked by Mr Boris Johnson to change how classes look when schools reopen to all children. What would your ideal class be like? You might want to think about the furniture, the people, the work, the clothes - it's up to you!


Wednesday 15th July 2020



LO: To recall and apply multiplication  and division facts with increasing accuracy.

Remember that:

3 x 5 = 15

5 x 3 = 15

15 = 3 x 5

15 = 5 x 3 

15 ÷ 3 = 5

15 ÷ 5 = 3

These are all related facts! It looks like some of you get a bit muddled if the number sentence (equation) is in a slightly different order. When you read the question- think carefully about what it needs you to do! Remember to use the multiplication square in your home learning book to help if you need to :-) 



LO: To use expanded noun phrases, onomatopoeia and alliteration.

Watch the exciting clip and tutorial, then complete the activities.



Topic - Science

LO: To carry out an investigation and analyse results.

Please download the Spinning Science pdf from our ebooks. You will need: paper, scissors, paper clips and a tape measure. Follow the instructions carefully and write or draw what you notice, this is a really good investigation to see how small changes can change the way an object flies.


If you would like to work on more science experiments at home this is a brilliant place to start: (As always, to have the best fun check with a grown up and stay safe!)

Using your notes to help you, create either a poster or a page to go in an information book or on a website – all about The Lego Story. Imagine the poster or book will be for children who are the same age as you, or younger, so try to make it as interesting and easy to follow as possible!

Remember to include: - heading (e.g. All About Lego) - sub-headings (e.g. How did Lego get its name? Who was Ole Kirk Kristianson?) - labelled picture/ diagram of a Lego brick/other toys - amazing fact(s) to surprise your reader. Alternatively, you may wish to organise your writing using a timeline structure like the example read yesterday:

Keep reading over your writing to check it makes sense. Remember to check for your spellings and punctuation. Colour your picture/diagram/ timeline and titles to make your page as bright and interesting as possible. Remember to email your work in :-)
