Week 4, beginning 22.11.21



L: Squared and cubed numbers

Read through the Powerpoint below. Then, have a go at the tasks outlined in the Powerpoint.


L: Colons and semi-colons

Have a read through the Powerpoint below. Then have a go at the task.


L: Greek legacies

It is time for some independent learning! A legacy is something that has lived on after someone has died or a civilisation has ended. Greek legacies include architecture because we still have buildings today that have been inspired by Ancient Greek buildings. Your task today is to research either Greek theatre or Greek architecture and how they are legacies.


Present your findings in a fact file - this should be around 1 A4 page. 



L: Multiplying by 10, 100 and 1000.

Today you are going to remind yourselves of how to multiply numbers by 10, 100 and 1000. Read through the ppt and look at the bitesize link (make sure you only look at multiplying) and then have a go at the questions below.

English and Science

L: Why do we have day and night?


This week we are joining English and Science. In English, we are going to be looking at explanation texts and in science we are going to be looking at why we have day and night. You are then going to combine all that you have learnt and your task is to write an explanation text about why we have day and night.


Start off by watching these videos (also on the powerpoint) and make some notes.

Video 1

Video 2


Then have a look at the explanation text examples. What are the features? What do they have in common?

Now you have made notes on why we have day and night and looked at example texts, it is your turn to have a go at writing your own. Make sure you use all of the key words on the powerpoint!



In class today we are taking part in a whole school writing event - writing a poem about a wintery scene. The aim of the poem is to bring the scene to life and create imagery in the readers mind. We can do this by using similes, metaphors and personification. For example, small footprints laying in the blanket of snow, as still as a statue.


Have a look at the picture below. If you were walking down the path, what could you see, hear, smell, taste, touch?


Try and come up with at least 4 different ideas for each sense and group your poem into stanzas around this. Think carefully about the structure of your poem. It doesn't need to rhyme. Have you included adverbs, adjectives and different sentence openers to keep the reader engaged?


Remember that you can submit your work if you are proud of it!


L: Dividing by 10, 100 and 1000


Today we are going to look at how we divide by 10, 100 and 1000. Look through the ppt and have a go at the task. Remember this time, when we make the numbers smaller, they move to the right. You can also have a look at the bitesize link from yesterdays lesson and look at what it says about dividing.


Follow the Oak Academy video lesson learning how to ask for different foods.
