Week Five: 18th-22nd May

This week's work to email

to Mr Grundy is the

May 20th English work

(your newspaper report).





For maths, you will be using the White Rose Maths Home Learning Website.


  1. Click on the link for your year group below.
  2. Watch the video on the White Rose site for whichever day it is.
  3. Complete the activity for that day (THESE ARE NOW FOUND BELOW - ON THIS PAGE): sometimes it will ask you to pause the video at a certain point and then have a go at the activity - do whatever the video asks you to do.   You can complete the activity:
    1. In your home learning book (you don't need to copy out the question - just write the question number and the answer); or
    2. By printing and completing the worksheet, if you are able to do that.
  4. Ask your parent, carer, or perhaps your older brother or sister to get the answers from below and mark your work.  If you got any wrong, you can talk about why it was wrong, and maybe do any corrections.
