This week we are going to be practising writing with a slope. At the top of the first image p24, it models an example of what your joins should be like. Use the lines in your book or on your paper to draw your letters the correct shape and size. This is something that we are practising all the time!

Can you remember what a simile is? Watch the short video below and then watch the teaching video to find out what the activity is.


Last week, you enjoyed listening to The Iron Man.

Warm up… complete the similes worksheet


Today you are going to use similes to describe The Iron Man. The teaching video explains how you can do this but it’s also shown in the power point for this week.

Please remember to write a detailed paragraph which includes similes and perhaps adjectives. You could include a picture underneath your writing if you like.


LO: To revise our counting of pounds.

Warm Up

Practise x tables using game in class or Hit The Button at home


Let’s choose 8’s today and see how confident we are! If you are really confident with this today, choose another one that you are less confident with and practise that too! If you are confident with them all, try your TTRS or a mix on Hit The Button.


Main Activity

Today we are going to be checking and consolidating our learning from Y2 of pounds.

Please watch the video lesson.

Please work through the Monday Power Point to make sure you understand what was mentioned in the video.

Complete the Monday activity. This can be printed out or write answers in your home learning book. Please don’t copy all of the questions out, just write your answers. Use any jottings and methods

you would like to work out your answers in your book too, just like we do at school!

Check your work alongside the answers.

How did you do today?


If the above work challenged you then you do not need to do this activity. Look at the Monday Extension Activity and choose either p2,3 or 4. Challenge yourself to answer some of the problems. You can check using the answers and talk through these.

LO: To use the ‘Repeat until’ command

This lesson is over 2-3 weeks so that you develop your confidence.

Today children we are going to visit Learn.code.org again



Scroll down to the Classic Maze



Revisit Level 6 and the repeat until function.

The bird will repeat that function until it can… then it will do what you have asked and carry on.


This is the most efficient way for the coding. It is quicker and easier. It makes the code shorter and simpler than lots of lines of coding. This means that if there is a problem in the code- a bug- it is easier to debug as you can locate the error more quickly.


Travel through level 14 and 15. Follow the instructions and any sample videos as you go. This is now getting quite tricky but I know you will be determined. You may need to visit this several times over the next couple of weeks to improve your confidence and skill level.
