Good morning

The answers for yesterday’s mind-boggling mysteries are:

  1. Question time: The correct time is 2:05.  Matt was having trouble with the numbers on the clock because they were Roman numerals.  Matt thought the Roman numeral II was an eleven.
  2. Long time no hear: The pair were scuba diving.  They met for the first time while underwater and used simple signs to communicate.  When they surfaced, each was surprised to find out that the other was also deaf.

WOW – I never saw that last one coming, it really stumped me.

Here are the guided reading answers from yesterday:

This week we will be doing another Talk4Writing booklet - The Cave of Requirement.

Today please read I would like you to complete the activities under the heading “Short burst writing” (page 21) and “initial Response” (page 22). These activities are in response to the stories you read yesterday. 

Wednesday 20th May-Literacy


Remember the Talk4Writing offers a presentation ever weekday morning at 9.30am This includes language games, creative writing and guest input from famous authors such as Frank Cottrell-Boyce.




Since there is a lot to complete this week in literacy, we will keep Reading Comprehension short and sweet each day. Today I thought we would revisit Shakespeare.

Below you will find a selection of Maths related tasks for you to complete today.  Please complete Summer term – Week 5, lesson 3 – dividing decimals by whole numbers.  I don’t mind if you use short division or long division – whatever you are most comfortable with.  This is revision for you so should be quite straight forward.


Once you have finished that login to Mathletics.

Wednesday 20th May - Maths



This term we have looked at the river Thames.  Today we will be looking at the modern landmarks of London (most of which sit along that river). 

Read through the fact files and create an advertisement (poster) that promotes tourism once this lockdown is over. Doing some pre-design research on your chosen landmark will help you come up with selling points – possibly look at other adverting campaigns on the Landmark. We have covered advertisements in Literacy, however to refresh your memory I have uploaded a quick advert fact sheet.
