64 Challenge

64 challenge This fantastic task is taken from Nrich – full details here:

Write the numbers up to 64 in an interesting way so that the shape they make at the end is interesting, different, more exciting ... than just a square.

64 challenge



For reading his week we have started listening to the audio story - The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling

The link below takes you to a Youtube audio book.

The story takes over 5 hours reading so you will need to listen to about 30 minutes each day so we can finish it over two weeks. 

Keep a notebook while listening to the reading.  Make notes about new vocabulary you can look up later - new words in the text or other powerful words, adjectives, similes etc that you can then use in your writing, including the school memories in the Literacy task above. 




In today's lesson, we will learn the basics of talking about food and drink in French.

This lesson includes:

one short film demonstrating how to talk about food and drink

two activities to try at home

Follow the link to the BBC website to begin the lesson.


Have a good day. I'll have some fresh tasks for you on Monday.

Mr Camilleri
