Word Mountains

It would be a great time to practise your word mountains.
Why not try starting from word mountain one and working your way through. This would be a great idea to revisit what you already know and practise on the words you find tricky.



It is always a good idea to practise what you already know. Work through the KIRFS so that you can become faster at recalling the facts. You do not need to work through them all at once. Maybe try one section at a time until you fully master it!


Remember to use TT Rockstars to practise your times tables daily.


Use an atlas or the internet to help you find the Capital Cities of the Countries on the list below.
In school we use the White Rose Maths scheme to teach our children.
To help support your child at home, I have attached a list of links to the videos to watch and learn and questions to answer.
To support your child, I have also included the answers
Science - Nutrition
Take a look at the presentation to find out about different foods that benefit us. Then use the activities to match the statement to the nutrient and an activity to find different ingredients in your food at home.
English - Adverbs
Click on the following link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zv73bdm and watch the video about adverbs. Complete the first activity on the computer or tablet by highlighting the adverbs. They describe the verb in the sentence.
Once you have finished, download the activity below and fill in the missing words with an adverb using the word bank. You can copy this out on to paper or use your exercise book.
Homophones are two or more words that sound the same but have different spellings and / or meanings. 
Read the sentences on the sheets carefully and pick the correct homophone for the sentence.
There are lots of activities for you to access using Serial Mash on Purple Mash.

1. Where are the animals sleeping?
2. Describe the landscape around them- what is their natural
3. What are the meerkats thinking as they climb the tree and
find the fruit?
4. How can you tell that the meerkats are happy to see the
fruit? What gesture do they make?
5. Why do they sway when they look at it?
6. Describe their movements as the vulture lands.
Do you think the vulture is going to be a hero or a villain in
the story?
Explain your answer.

7. Why do you think all of the animals are so desperate to
catch it?
8. Think of three sentences to describe the way in which the
vulture moves against the meerkats.
9.What word would you use to describe the fruit at the end
of the clip?
10. Who do you think won in the end?
Do you think there is a moral to this story? What is it?

Can you use books or the internet (with supervision) to try
and find 15 amazing facts about the vulture.
Using the same video from the reading task, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c88QE6yGhfM I would like you to watch the clip again and write the story from the view of one of the meerkats?
Remember to make your writing as exciting as possible. 

Some things you might want to include…

A verb to start a sentence.
E.g. Racing across the savanna, we could only think of one
thing: food.

An adverb to start a sentence.
E.g. Skilfully, we passed the fruit between us.

Try adding some short, snappy sentences to add
E.g. He froze.

Tell the reader when something happened.
E.g. Moments later, an enormous shadow passed overhead
forcing us to run for cover

Use adjectives (describing words) to add interest.
E.g. The starving, calculated vulture landed upon the bare
branch, eyeing up the sweet, ripe fruit as it dangled

Use a simile to compare something in the story to
something else.
E.g. Like a well trained rugby team we rallied into

Make vocabulary swaps for smarter words.
E.g. Instead of: We ran across the ground.
Use: We sprinted across the  scrubland.

Use repetition to keep the reader’s interest.
E.g. Our stomachs rumbled. Then the branches rumbled as
he landed. After that the ground rumbled as our tint feet
got to work.

 Design Technology 
Design a photo frame. 

Take a look at the video for inspiration. 
Your task is to plan, design and make a photo frame.

You can make the frame using items you have in your home.

With an adult, think about parts of a photo frame.

How does it stand up? How does it look? How easy is it to put a photograph in? How well does it display the photograph? Who would use it? What kind of picture is it for? Where would it stand?

Plan: Think about the equipment you will need: which items will you need? How many items will you need? What shape will the outside be? Which parts will it use to balance? What kind of stand support will you need? Where can you attach this?  What will you use to make the support?


Design: What will you need the frame to do in order to be successful?
1. Stand up supported only by its stand
2. Display a photograph
3. Easy to get photo in and out

How will your frame look? 
Think about:

Basic frame shape (think of user’s preferences)
Size of frame
Front and back view
How it will stand up
Colours and design
Think about who your frame is for, is there a theme you can add to your design?
Materials to be used for the frame and for the decoration.


Make: Using the items and equipment in your plan, put your plan and design together. Be careful when using scissors and other sharp objects.


Evaluate: is there anything that needs to change? Could you have made the money box a different way? Is there anything that can be improved? If you were to make it again, what changes would be made?


Learning outcomes: rolling, folding, layering, joining and reflecting on their work.


Listen carefully to the music and the words.

Perhaps close your eyes. You could move with the pulse. Use your imagination as you enjoy the music. Share some of the colours, words, pictures or feelings you see and feel when listening to the song on a piece of paper.
You can create a diagram, drawing or story from this.


1.  Does this song tell a story? Perhaps the words tell a story or perhaps the music creates a story in your imagination. What is that story?

2. What can you hear? 

3. What is the style of this music?

4. How does the music make you feel?

5. Did you like the song? It doesn't matter if you like or don't like a song or a piece of music. Think about the reasons why you do or don't.
