Tuesday 21st April 2020

Good morning all,

I hope you have all settled back into online learning.

The answers to the Mind-boggling mysteries are:

  1. It’s only a matter of time: The kid figured out that at noon, all the hands on the clock would point directly up, showing them where to find the next clue. He found it o top of the grandfather clock.
  2. When right is wrong: people shake hands with their right hand.

How did you go? I could not for the life of me figure the second one out.  I hope you had better luck than I did.

Some of you have asked how my baby bump is going.  Joey is growing big and fast.

Today we will be continuing on from a couple of things we started yesterday.




From the activities yesterday I can say that the one thing I miss doing more than anything is going to my local Cafe for breakfast and then catching the train into London to visit a museum or market.  What did you say you were missing?

What did you see, feel, taste, touch when you opened your magic door.  I was at home, on the beach with my dog, Cheese, having a lamington and Barbecue.  I could taste the salty air as the wind brushed my hair off my sunburnt face.

We will be continuing the booklet called “Doors – the world of possibilities.” Today, I would like you to complete activity 3 and 4. I have also assigned you more studyladder literacy activities to complete - give them a go. Idioms are hard, so watch:

I have set you a reading task – Narrative – on studyladder for you to complete. 

Tuesday 21st April - Guided Reading



Below you will find a selection of Maths related tasks for you to complete today.  Please complete Summer term – Week,

lesson two. We have covered vertically opposite angles – remember they are equal.

Don't forget to keep up with Mathletics tasks.

Tuesday 21st April Maths



We are going to continue our look at evolution and inheritance.  Today, we look at Darwin’s observations from his trip on the HMS Beagle. We will then put all his observations together to see how Darwin came up with his theory. His theory is called evolution. We will apply this new knowledge to two other examples of evolution, mice and giraffes.

The link I have provided is has a quiz to start with – don’t worry it said I had three wrong answers because I didn’t word them exactly as they did.  So you might get the right answer, as I always say, be mindful of the key words used.

It will then take you to two different activities – with a video and tasks to complete.  It is very interesting – so make sure you complete all tasks.
