Times Tables Practice

Spend some time practising your times tables. Here is a song to learn or a game to play. Take your pick and tell me how you got on!


L.O. To write a diary entry

Re-read the passage from yesterday when Mole visits the Wild Wood. Think about the following questions:

  • What does Mole see?
  • What doesn't Mole see?
  • What does Mole hear?
  • How does Mole feel?
  • What does the Wild Wood look like?

Imagine that you are Mole and write another diary entry for him at the end of this event. Remember to write in the first person and in the past tense. Include lots of details and Mole's thoughts and feelings.

There is a success criteria below so you can see what your writing should include. 


L.O. TO divide using a formal written method

Time to practise your formal written maths skills! Log onto your MyMaths and complete the activity there. Remember, that you can work your way through the lesson on MyMaths if you need help. Good Luck!


L.O. To know how matter changes state

Last week, you used Oak Academy to find out about how solids, liquids and gases are made up of tiny particles. Today, we will investigate how they can change from one to the other. 

Follow the link to work through the BBC work, including doing the quiz at the bottom of the page. 

There is a sheet to complete. If you are able, you could try using the examples on the sheet. Try changing the state of different materials: water, wax and chocolate. If you do, take pictures and tell us what you did!

If you want a challenge, have a look at the challenge extension.
