Tuesday 21st April

Good Morning All,

Hope you are all well this morning. Don’t forget to keep reading and practising your timestables too!


Your tasks for today are:


English: Using your homophones from yesterday, your English for today is to create your own poem using two or more homophones. As an extra challenge, can you get your poem to rhyme?


Maths:  Your maths today is to continue with our work on fractions. This time we are looking at fractions of amounts. Please remember to use the crib sheet to help you which has 2 very useful links which talks you through how to work out simple fractions of amounts and then then next step of those fractions with numerators other than one.


PE: Joe Wicks has set everyone a challenge a few weeks ago of designing a workout for his morning PE sessions, and we would like you to send us yours. For those of you that haven’t taken part at all, don’t worry the sheet below explains the structure of the work outs and gives you a template of how you could design your own following the structure. We would like you to give your own work out a try too. Perhaps you could film yourself doing it in the style of Joe Wicks so we could give it a go too.


Brain Teaser:

The answer to the brain teaser yesterday was: The match!


Your brain teaser for today is: You are driving a bus. At the first stop, two women get on. The second stop, three men get on and one woman gets off. At the third stop, three kids and their mom get on, and a man gets off. The bus is grey, and it is raining outside. What colour is the bus driver’s hair?


Fact of the day: 

The tallest man in history was 8’11” tall. Giants aren’t just creatures from mythology. American man Robert Wadlow is the tallest known human ever to live and was nearly 9 feet tall (2.7m!)
