Hello Sycamore Class!

It looks like lots of you enjoyed the maths work yesterday- well done! I think you're going to like today's challenge too. Have a look at the 'Class Gallery' page on the website to see the work from yesterday. 


Active Start

Let’s get started with an active start activity. You could pick from the list below, or think of your own.

  • Joe Wicks workout
  • Oti Mabuse is still doing her daily dance sessions on YouTube (Oti Mabuse Official).
  • Yoga with Cosmic Kids Yoga (
  • How many laps of you garden can you run in 10 minutes? Record the number and see if you can beat it tomorrow.
  • Set up a carousel of activities in your garden. Use what you can find to make an obstacle course- a slalom to run around, things to jump, something to climb under, some skipping, jogging on the spot, star jumps
  • Choose your favourite song and create a dance routine to go with it. Practice until you’re happy with it.


Daily Jobs

  • Read for at least 20 minutes. Choose somewhere comfortable with your favourite book! Don’t forget, you can also read magazines, internet articles, read online using your Bug Club/ Active Learn login. If you have younger brothers or sisters you could read them a story too.

You can also access book-band level books on the Oxford Owl Website:

  • Practice your spellings- choose 5 from the list in your pack. Use ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ to practise them, like we do in class.
  • Practice your times tables. You could do this by writing them down, playing ‘hit the button’ (or other online games on Active Learn), make up a song or rhyme to go with the times tables you’re practising.



Firstly, here are the answers to the challenges I set yesterday. How did you get on?

Spicy Challenge


































Today I want you think about there the digits are places in a number, and how this changes the numbers value. For example, 25 and 52 have the same digits, but 52 is bigger.


Using the numbers 3   7 and  9  I can make 6 different numbers : 379, 397,  739, 793, 937, 973. By putting the smallest number in the hundreds column, I get a smaller number than if I put the biggest number in the hundreds column.            


Complete the following task in your maths book. For each question, use these digits to make as many different numbers as possible, like I did in the example above.

  1.     4   2   6
  2.     9   1   4
  3.      4    1   8
  4.     6   3   5
  5.     1   1   7
  6.     8   4   1
  7.     3   0   5
  8.     9   1   8
  9.     7   3   6
  10.     5   2   8


So to start you off:

  1. 426, 462…


Now put the numbers in order from smallest to biggest. Think carefully about the place value of each digit in the number to help you.



It’s Friday spellings day. I know lots of you enjoy doing the ‘scribble spellings’ and find these help you to remember the patterns, so we will do them again today.


The words we’re going to look at today are all spelt with an ‘ai’. Read through the words in your list below. Do you know what each of them means? Look them up in a dictionary if you’re not sure

Mrs M and Ms L’s groups






















Create your own ‘scribble spelling’ page (like we use sometimes in class). Draw one continuous line on a plain piece of paper that cross over itself and goes in different directions. Remember your spaces need to be big enough to fit your spelling words in it.



Choose a section of your scribble sheet and see how many times you can correctly spell one of the words inside it. You can use different colours to make this look interesting.


Next I would like you to create your own dictation, like we usually have at the end of our spelling tests. A dictation is basically just 5 or 6 sentences that link together, that contain at least 5 or 6 of the spellings you have been practising. They can be as random or funny as you like, and they don’t have to make sense.


Sing Up song of the week:

Friday afternoon is usually time for singing. On Monday, Mrs Crosswell introduced you to the Sing Up song of the week, where Beccy Owen sings a song about the effects of global warming. Listen to it again and join in on the parts where you can.


It’s a very catchy song about how we need to think carefully about climate change and look after our wildlife. Many zoos are working really hard to save endangered species and today Chester Zoo is focussing on some endangered species during their ‘live zoo days’. To find out more about some of these amazing animals, you could ask you adult to look up ‘Chester Zoo’ on Facebook and watch some of the videos they have created about their endangered animals.



A few weeks ago I asked you to try and get some seeds ready for planting. Today I would like you to plant these seeds, if you haven’t done already. I realise that you might not have plant pots and compost available at home, so I have put some pictures below of some more creative planting ideas that you might like to try. Remember, whether you plant your seeds on compost, soil for the garden, cotton wool or kitchen roll, you will need to give the seeds water.




Once your seed is planted and watered, I would like you to start a ‘seed diary’ showing what you have done so far. This could be in a separate notebook, or on some pieces of paper that have been folded up into a book, but please try and do this separately to your usual work book so that you can see the progress of your seed. You will need to put today's date so we know when the seed was planted, and what you did to plant them.


Put your seed on a sunny windowsill and water them whenever the soil or kitchen roll gets dry. Over the next few days, keep an eye on your seeds and note down any changes that there might be.


I know that lots of you were enjoying our class story or Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone before school closed. Some of you have this book at home and have been reading it already, but if you’d like to listen to somebody reading this to you, Daniel Radcliffe, who played Harry Potter in the films, has started reading some of the chapters. If this interests you, I’ve added the link below for you to enjoy.


Let me know if you would like the link to the next two chapters.


That’s the end of another brilliant week of home learning. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend.
