When you have created your character description, I want you to use all of your wonderful information and put it into a detail paragraph. Try and use a range of sentence types and openers that I mentioned on the video.


Maths Meeting: Recapping previous learning (15 minutes)

Maths: Decimals (45 minutes)

Today you are going to be comparing and ordering decimal numbers. Watch the first video below to understand today’s task and then watch the video after for your questions. Once you have completed them, I have put a further challenge for you to complete if you feel confident enough.

Teacher Input

Challenge – TRUE or FALSE?

Look at the question below and determine whether it is true or false. Work it out, answer it, prove it and explain why. Think about when we were multiplying by 10 and dividing by 10, what happens to the numbers as they move columns passed the decimal point?


Reading – Read the passage of text called ‘Maya’. It includes lots of speech. Once you have read the text, I want you to become a magpie and find interesting and powerful words from the text.

Task – read the text and identify words that will fill the table below. A couple of examples have been found for you.


In art, we are going to do something a little different. Because we drew mountains in geography this week, I thought it would be nice to have a look at the seven wonders of the world. The seven new wonders of the world are extraordinary places in the world where lots of people love to visit. They are historic.

  • Great Wall of China, China.
  • Chichén Itzá, Mexico.
  • Petra, Jordan.
  • Machu Picchu, Peru. 
  • Christ the Redeemer, Brazil.
  • Colosseum, Italy.
  • Taj Mahal, India.

Choose one of the wonders of the world and find a video of how to draw it on YouTube. Have a go at drawing one of the wonders and enjoy your art lesson. Try to press the pencil on lightly and use the side of the pencil for a shading effect.

Here is a video of Christ the Redeemer, Brazil. I would like to see a range of drawings from the whole class.


Relax, enjoy a story to yourself and reflect on your day.

I am proud of your efforts.

Well done,

Mr Farrier.
