Home-Learning Challenges!

I will continue to renew the homework/ daily challenges. If you would like any help or would like to contact me during this school closure, please use my school email and I will get back to you ASAP.


*Research family life in the 1960s and create a poster/leaflet or powerpoint to present what you have found out.

*Find recipes and plan 7 different healthy meals.



Solve the word problems mentally and record your answers. When you have solved them, check your answers on a calculator. 



Watch a film and review it using the film review checklist. You can write this formally, or be creative and review it as a poster/ leaflet. 



I have set you lots of tasks on Purple Mash. Complete at least one of these tasks. If you don't have your login, email me and I can send this out to you. 



Complete the subtraction questions in a column method.



Look at how we make these singular words plural. Make sentences with the words in the word bank.



Complete the science crossword. Research the answers to the clues!



Complete the addition problems using a column addition format. 



Complete the synonym and antonym sheet. (Synonyms mean the same things e.g big = huge. Antonyms mean the opposite e.g tall and small).



Begin a moon diary for the month. Draw what the moon looks like each night at roughly the same time. 


I have posted some ideas to keep you going at home. I will also provide support documents for English and Maths. A lot of these ideas are what we would be doing in school at this current time. 


English- Practise the Y3/4 and Y5/6 spelling word lists. Put these into sentences or find the definition in a dictionary when you have practised them.


Maths- Keep practising the multiplication and division facts for all times tables up to 12x12. Use a ruler to measure objects around your house, find the area of certain objects or weigh objects with scales. Make your own column addition/ subtraction problems. Have a go at short multiplication and bus stop method division problems. 


Science- Research the Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Create a poster/ newspaper report.

Create a page for each planet. What can you find out about each one?


Art/ DT- Design and make your own board game! Create a rule guide for this. Play it with a parent or a sibling.


RE- Research either 'Christian Aid' or 'Muslim Hands.' Find out about the work that these charities do to help people around the world. Create a poster with your findings.


Topic (Leisure over time)- Research the development of 'Apple.' What was their first product? How has the company developed over time?

How has technology changed over time? Explore devices such as Atari, Ninendo DS, Playstation 1. Compare these to today's Xbox and Playstation.
