Tuesday 9th March


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 l/ll/le/el/al/ol/il/ul. Tuesday’s task in your booklet is to find as many words in the passafe as you can with the sound? Maybe you could play 10 minutes of Nessy also?


Tables –I will post on Seesaw your tables which you can write down and try and then you can mark them yourself using the marking slide…no cheating. You are then going to revise dividing by 2/5/10 with remainders similar to today’s Numeracy work.

Literacy – More work on Homophones


We’re going to revisit homophones today.

Red, Blue & Green Groups – Read your sentences and underline the two words (homophones) which are incorrect and write the correct spelling above.

Yellow Group – Read the pair of homophones and choose the correct spelling the go in the space.

Purple Group – Complete the missing words choosing the correct homophone.


I would love you all to try the fun extension activity today. It is a little play on words. I’d like you to be creative and to write a sentence using the incorrect homophone and illustrate it in the box and colour it in. These are supposed to be funny so be imaginative. J Remember to send me these on SEESAW…I’d love to see them.

Numeracy – Dividing with remainders


Please don’t panic with this new work today. Today we’re going to be thinking about dividing with remainders. Remainders just means that the number will not divide equally and you will have a number left over (remainder).



Remember to check SEESAW where there is an explanation video to help with this new concept today and I would like you to complete your work today with some practical materials. Use Lego, coins, pasta, pebbles…whatever you can find.


Once you’ve watched Mrs Boyd’s video on SEESAW, have a go at your work today and please use practical materials for all of today’s work if you need to. I’ll explain a little more tomorrow about doing these without practical materials.

WAU – States of Matter

Matter makes up our physical universe. Today we are going to learn about the matter on Earth, which exists in one of three states: solid, liquid or gas. 



What are the different states of matter?


Solids are objects that keep their own shape and do not flow in a given temperature.  Ice is a solid but when it melts it becomes a liquid. Other examples of solids are cars, books and clothes.


Solids can be different colours and textures, and they can be turned into different shapes, for example clay. Solids are made up of molecules which group together and don’t move around.



Liquids do not have their own shape but can take the shape of the container they are in and they can flow at a given temperature.  Examples of liquids are tea, water and blood.


They can be different colours and thickness; for example, custard is a thicker liquid than tea and doesn’t flow as quickly as tea.

You can measure a liquid in a cup or a spoon. Liquids are made up of molecules which are further apart than in solids and can move around easily.



Gases are air-like substances that can move around freely or flow to fit a container and they don’t have their own shape.  You can put your hand through gases and you won’t feel them.


If they get out their container they can spread easily.  We are surrounded by different gases in the air we breathe.

We can’t put gas into a measuring cup to measure its volume; it has to be worked out using a mathematical formula. Their molecules are spaced apart and jiggle around.


Have a look at the PPT and the videos below before completing your work for today.
