Today I want you to work really hard at joining on and off of the letter e. The second image p27 encourages you to do this in the EXTRA section. It also asks you to include an apostrophes where a letter (or letters) has been missed out. Keep trying the words until you are happy with your joins.



If you feel you have done really well with your joins, you could move on to the EXTENSION section at the bottom of image 2 p27. This section is demonstrating words within sentences that contain the letter e. Little and often is best to improve your handwriting. Keep working hard! I bet your writing looks amazing at the end of your practice.

LO: To revise how we make and use tally charts.


Warm Up

Practise division facts using a game in class or Hit The Button at home


Remember to click division facts today and not x tables!

Let’s choose 6’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 building on our knowledge of tally charts from Y2 Term 3 (during 1st lockdown). 

Please watch the video lesson.

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

Complete the Tuesday 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.

Can you devise a maths investigation where you would need to construct a tally chart to help you gather some answers? Draw it out and explain it to someone. Could the investigation be improved? Draw out a tally that would collect any results with the correct headings and using a ruler.

This half term we have been learning lots about the UK. Today we will be putting our knowledge to the test! Have a look at the PowerPoint and then see if you can complete the map.

LO: To explore how Hindus pray

Today we will be learning about how Hindus pray and worship at home and in the Mandir.


I have a few VERY special items and objects in my house. One is a photo of my family, another is my favourite book. I also have a 'Freddie' box where I put special memories and objects which remind me of my son's first few months and years. Can you draw a picture of your special object? Around this write words to show what the object means to you and why it is special. You could talk to a sibling/friend/parent about this instead if you prefer.


Thinking time: do we all worship?


A Hindu shrine is a collection of objects that show what matters most to a Hindu. Many Hindus will have a shrine in their own home. Have a look at pictures and videos of a shrine. 



Hindus treat the images of gods and goddesses like very special guests who are respected, cared for, talked to, offered food and kept clean. 

Why might this be?



Have a go at this picture extending activity: below is a sheet with a Murti pictured in the centre. Can you finish the shrine by drawing all you might see in a bigger picture?



We need to be keeping as fit as we can be. As well as your walks and bike rides, try something new. If you have a scooter this is a great activity to keep you fit. 

Below are some suggested activities that may help you think of ideas. Consider using a fitness app or a fitness channel and get the whole family to join in.
