Thursday 14th January

Morning Check in on Seesaw – this will be going live at 9 a.m., but don’t panic, you have all day to respond.


Phonics – Our sound of the week is oi/oy….like you’re shouting at someone. Thursday’s task is an oi/oy wordsearch in your phonics booklet. Maybe you could play 10 minutes of Nessy also?


Tables – Usually in school Tuesday-Thursday we would practise our mental maths focus. I will post on Seesaw Mrs Boyd calling out your tables which you can write down and try and then you can mark them yourself using the marking slide…no cheating.


Reminder: I’d like you to complete a Friday Assessment tomorrow which is in your home learning pack. I will call out your spellings on Seesaw – make sure you do the correct group. So spend some time learning your spellings and revising your x6-9 tables. J

Literacy – 60 Second Reads


Your last Literacy focus for this week is comprehension. It’s important to keep reading at home and to use your comprehension skills to find answers in a text. You have two 60 second reads based on our topic of Early Man. They are, ‘A Hunter with a Heart’ and ‘Cave Paintings’. Read the text carefully and answer in full sentences giving evidence from the text. They’re a little tricky, so try your best.  They focus on finding information using your reciprocal reading strategies of predicting, clarifying and summarising.

Numeracy – ALL Tables…eek!

The focus for today is to revise ALL of your tables.

Why don’t you play the following games by choosing mixed tables to practise?





Play a Kahoot

Sometimes we play a game called Kahoot in class. Click this link to go to a Kahoot to practise your tables. Only play it once and be sure to use your real name so I know who you are. Click on the link or if you have downloaded the APP then enter the pincode. Enjoy!

Now complete your mixed table pages in your booklet as accurately as you can. Someone at home may like to mark them or you can send me pictures of them on SEESAW if you wish. There are also two colouring pages for x11/x12. We don’t really need to know them in P5, but it’s a good starting point for P6 if you can learn them.


There are also times tables PODS on Studyladder that you can play after you have finished your work if you want some extra practice. J

Topic (WAU) - Hunting 

We know that one of the main jobs of the early people was hunting. This was essential in order for them to survive as they needed to hunt down animals in order for them to eat a substantial meal. Hunting was a difficult task which took a lot of patience and care. Often the father would have taken his son with him on a hunting expedition to teach him how to be a good hunter. 


Have a look at the four pictures on your worksheet and see if you can write pictures to match what is happening. You could maybe watch the video below which will give you a snapshot of what life was life in The Middle Stone Age (Mesolithic Era). 


Here are some words which may be useful:


tracks        quietly         prey        clearing       forest        aim       kill         boar 


Maybe underneath your worksheet you'd like to answer the following question?


Would you like to have been a hunter? Why/Why not?
