Wednesday 6th January


This week we are continuing to look at multiplication and division.  We are currently following the White Rose Hub unit.  All the activities and PowerPoints are linked below.


Divide by 3

Aut3.11.2 - Divide by 3

This is "Aut3.11.2 - Divide by 3" by White Rose Maths on Vimeo, the home for high quality videos and the people who love them.


Today we are going to be working on our grammar.  One thing we need to keep working on is our use of there, their and they're (homophones).  I have linked below a worksheet and a PowerPoint for you to complete.  Maybe copy up the sentences from the worksheet into your yellow book which was sent home today.  That way you can be practicing your handwriting too!


You could also look at  homophones in general.  What is the definition of a homophone?

Write down some you already know.

Here are some other homophones for you to look at and find the difference in their meaning.


here or hear

see or sea

where or wear

bear or bare

I or eye

break or brake



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!

In your home learning folder, that you collected from school, is a guided reading question sheet which someone at home can use to help you understand your reading and extend your knowledge!

Read Write Inc Spellings


For your spelling’s today, I would like you to have someone at home test you on the spellings that you have been practicing from unit 4!  You can always give me an email to let me know how you did on your test! 

We always do the test on the top of the page for the next unit, for today this is page 19 and it is right at the top under speed spell.


Then afterwards have a look at our new spellings. 

This week we are now on unit 5 and our spellings are looking at words ending in -ture.


They are -










Why not have a go at writing them out as a poster and then hanging the poster somewhere in your house, so that you can keep practicing them!


Tomorrow we shall be working from our RWI booklets that have been sent home.


This term we are kicking off with a book which will help us with our worries.  At the moment the world is a very confusing place and sometimes we can worry about so much!  Therefore, we are going to be looking at the book, 'Ruby's Worry,' by Tom Percival (See video of the text below).


Try writing out the questions below and have a go at answering them. 


Do you think Ruby's worry is gone forever?

What do you think she might do next time it comes back?  


Have you ever had a worry?  Have you ever talked about your worry with anyone else?  If you had a worry now, who would you talk to?
