In maths today we are continuing looking at fractions.

Below is the video of today's lesson.  Have a watch and then try the activity linked below.  I have also put in the answers to mark your work when you are finished.

Spr3.10.2 - Find a half


For this literacy unit we are following the Somerset Literacy Network plan on Somerset Folktales!  For this we are going to be particularly looking at the story of, 'The Seven Sisters'.


Please see the file below of the story.


For today's activity I would like you to read the first page of the story. 'The Seven Sisters'.   Stop at the bottom of the first page.  

Talk about the following questions and make some notes.

  • In which old kingdom of England is this story set? 
  • Queen Eleanor “would try to find any excuse to hold a ball.” What does that mean?
  • “King Gyffarde forbade singing and dancing.” What does the word ‘forbade’ mean?  Which other words mean the same?   
  • Why did the daughters start dancing in secret?
  • Where could you see from the top of Cothelstone Hill?
  • What do you understand by the term “men-at-arms”?  What other word could be used instead?
  • The first part of the story ends with the king about to confront his daughters. What does ‘confront’ mean?


Can you suggest what might happen next and how the story might end?


I would like you to spend some time every day reading your reading book or any book you are enjoying.  It is great to read to others but it is also good to do some independent reading!  Maybe you could send in some book reviews that we could share on our webpage!



Today we are looking our new unit 21 spellings.  As always they will be updated on the spelling tab on the front of our class webpage.


Today in school we are creating our own mosaic pictures.  We have already looked at what mosaics are and how they are made.  I have also attached a PowerPoint all about them.  So, I would like you to create your own mosaic scene (use some of the pictures attached to help you).  You could use any media from around the house.  Remember the most common colours were orange, black, white and sometimes yellow and red.  I look forward to seeing your creations.
