This week our literacy work will be based on the story of ‘The Snail and the Whale’.

The Snail and the Whale (TV Short 2019) - IMDb

In our SPaG lesson today we will be writing similes. A simile is where we use as or like to compare two things. For example, as big as an elephant. Today we will be extending them further using prepositions.

As big as an elephant stomping loudly through the hot, sticky jungle.

Today we will be building on our previous learning on the 6 times tables.

We can use our known facts to solve problems.

I can use my knowledge of the 3 times tables to help me with the 6 times tables. A multiple of 6 is double the multiple of 3.

3 x 3 = 9      3 x 6 = 18

We can also use our knowledge of fact families to solve larger questions.

2 x 6 = 12    6 x 2 = 12   12 ÷ 2 = 6   12 ÷ 6 = 2

I can use this to solve 20 x 60 =

Each number has been multiplied by 10. So I need to multiply the answer by 10 twice.

2 x 6 x 10 x 10. So 20 x 60 = 1200.

Use this to solve these:

You can choose the maths sheet you feel most confident with to complete.

Remember you do not have to print the worksheet to be able to complete it.


In music we are going to be learning about crotchets and quavers. Here is a message from our lovely music teachers Mrs Pritchard and Mrs Buckley.

Get Active

Every day spend 20 minutes doing some form of physical activity. Moving our bodies can have a positive impact on our physical and mental wellbeing. This can be anything you enjoy. In school we will be following Joe Wicks or running around the school track.


It is important that you continue to read every day. This can be your favourite story books, comics, magazines or even online articles.
