Wednesday, 24th June

Hello everyone, 


The sunshine is back so get outside and enjoy some fresh air. It is going to be very hot though so make sure you drink lots of water and put some sun tan lotion on if you go out. 


Have a great day!

Here are today's tasks...




I would like you to go on the 'Daily 10'. This is where you receive 10 questions and you need to write the answer down for each as it comes up. Today I would like you to click on:

-Level 2

-Ordering  (smallest 2 digit first)

-Choose your time (how quickly each new question comes up. The shorter the time the quicker the questions will come. Maybe start at 10 seconds and if that is easy reduce to 7 then 5, 3 etc.)


Main session


Today we will focus on two step problems linked to moneyYou will use your skills of recognising coins, addition and subtraction. You will always need to do 2 different sums to get the answer. Read the questions carefully. 


Firstly, watch this video.


Afterwards I would like you to try the sheet attached below and check your work against the answers.

Remember, you can either print it, write the answers out or discuss them with a family member.



If your child finds the White Rose sheet fairly easy I have also attached an additional problem solving activity. As that suggests the questions are more tricky, take time and are to extend learning further. They get more difficult as you work through them. The answers are also provided to support you to review the work.




I have loved seeing your amazing animal fact files, thank you!


In Autumn term (how long ago does that feel?!) we wrote riddles. Today I would like you to try and write a riddle based on one of your African animals. I have attached a power point below with examples of riddles to remind you of the learning. 


Remember, don't give the most obvious piece of information away first, keep your audience guessing. 


1. Create a mind map about your animal thinking a bout how the look, what they eat, where they live, what noise they make etc. 


2. Order the clues/detail from least obvious to most obvious.

For example if I said...     '1) You would find me living in Africa.' This could be about many animals and your reader wouldn't be sure. If on the other hand I said... '1) I have a long grey trunk' you would know straight away that it was an elephant. 


3. Write out the riddle with a new clue on a new line. DON'T write it as one paragraph. Do between 4 - 6 clues. 


Example layout:


What am I?....












I am a.....



Now look at the features to help you/check yours against. 




Ndebele house painting is a style of African art practiced by the Southern Ndebele people of South Africa. It is predominantly practiced by the Ndebele women when painting homes.                                   

As you can see they are very bright and colourful and are always symmetrical (the came on both sides).


Click on this link to watch a video to find out more about the art and one of their most famous artists.


I have also attached a power point below to shoe you are examples. 


Today I would like you to decorate your pretend African house. Draw an outline like the example above and then create your symmetrical pattern.
