Thursday 14th May

Hi Class Four,

I can't believe it's Thursday already - this week seems to be going very quickly. I had a good day yesterday, I finally finished all the priming painting!!! I'm so pleased as it felt like it was never going to end! I've got some touching up to do on some of the walls, then I've got a lot of glossing to do (which is even smellier and more fiddly than the priming, oh well!).

The rules on lockdown changed yesterday so I went for a socially distanced picnic with Mrs Pilgrim. The rules are that you can meet one other person from outside your household as long as you stay 2m apart. Mrs Pilgrim had to bring baby Alice, so hoping that doesn't count! It was so lovely to see them both - they live just round the corner from me, so we walked to a little park nearby and both brought our own food and blankets so we wouldn't have to share anything and sat quite a way apart. But it was nice to be out and catch up properly with a friend. As you can see, Alice has grown a lot since you last saw her, she had some berry puree to eat and then spent lots of time playing with her maracas - I wonder if she will be a musician like her mum!

I hope you all have a great day, keep working hard - I am very proud when I receive your emails and see the fantastic work you are doing at home.

Love Miss Olver x

A few more Greek messages for you to decode!
I was so impressed with the Greek myths some of you sent me yesterday. I feel very proud to see how hard you are all working on your home learning. I have created a new page for your Greek myths on the Class Four homepage, or you can just click the link below. You could read some of these as your independent reading each day as they are fantastic. I will be adding to this as more are sent through, so keep checking back.
Yesterday's PE with Joe seemed fine, even when we got up to 15 minutes. But then, wow, that last 4 minutes was an absolute killer!! I wonder what he's got in store for us today?


Year 5

Today you are going to be continuing with your work on decimals. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 5 website and find Summer Term Week 2, Lesson 4 which is called ‘Subtracting Decimals with a different number of decimal places’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the extension task below. For this task, you have to fill in the decimal pyramids. The instructions are explained at the top of the worksheet. You have three choices on this activity:

Easiest option – Task on Page 1, Answers on Page 2

Middle option – Task on Page 3, Answers on Page 4

Hardest option – Task on Page 5, Answers on Page 6

Year 6

Today you are going to be continuing with your work on angles. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 6 website and find Summer Term Week 2, Lesson 2 which is called ‘Angles in Regular Polygons’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work. I have included an extra document which shows my workings and explanations for questions 3 and 5 if you get a bit stuck.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, today, then have a go at one of the online angle games below.


Remember to make an entry in your diary/journal at some point today.

Today we are going to be doing a spelling session. Hopefully you have been practising your spelling sentences each day and are already becoming familiar with our spelling focus for this week and next week. We are looking at words where the prefix ends in a vowel and the root word starts with a vowel, so a hyphen has to be used in between. This mostly happens with the prefixes co- and re-.

First, watch the Powerpoint to recap the rule and have a go at solving the anagrams (these are puzzles where all the letters are mixed up and you have to rearrange them to create the words). There are clues on there to help you.

Next, have a look at the matching pairs sheet. Pages 1 and 2 are the matching pairs cards and Page 3 is the answers. First, have a go at just matching the words with the correct meaning. Then you could have a go at playing matching pairs if you want to.

If you have time, then work through the wordsearch below where you will need to find the hyphenated words. The wordsearch in on Page 1 with the answers on Page 2.

You might want to practise your spelling sentences now for today as you are already thinking about these spellings.


Today is our third session on our Belonging unit. In this session, we will be exploring how Muslims show they belong to their faith during prayer. Start by working through the Powerpoint below.

For the next part of the task I would like you to explain in your own words what Muslims do and wear to show they belong to their faith during prayer? Can you explain why they do these things?

You can either:

  • Do this on the worksheet below
  • Cut out the pictures and write your responses in your book
  • Draw your own pictures to go with your writing in your book

Use the pictures to prompt you and remember that you can look back at the Powerpoint if you are unsure.

Spellings and Reading

Make sure you practise your spellings ready for your test tomorrow (if you didn't practise them earlier in the English lesson). Also do some independent reading of a book of your choice.
