18th - Monday

Good morning, Manta Rays. You should have all had an email about a scholastic library account that has been set up for you. In this email should be your log in details and I have allocated books to your account for you to read. These are really lovely books and it is a great resource to help your learning at home!


Please read through the text and pick out any words or phrases you don't know. Then, use a dictionary to find their definitions.


We are going to be working on non-fiction this week. By the end of the week, you will be writing a non-chronological report (fact file) about something you are interested in. 

Today, we are focusing on using paragraphs in non-fiction texts. For this, I would like you to go through the presentation slides to complete the mini-tasks about labelling paragraphs and organising them. Remember that non-chronological reports need a heading to say what the whole text is about and subheadings that say what each section is about.

Once you have completed the mini-tasks on the slides, choose a star level sheet to complete:

1 star - first two sheets.

2 star - sheet 3 and 4

3 star - sheet 5 and 6

There is also a challenge set of sheets that you can complete if you want to.


We are going to be looking at division this week but our first lessons needs to be times tables practice. Please complete the sheets using your times tables to help you.

For example:

If you know your 2 times tables, you can divide by 2. 

If you were trying to work out 12 ÷ 2 you could go through your 2 times tables until you got to 12:

2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 = this was 6 lots of 2 so:

12 ÷ 2 = 6 and 2 x 6 = 12

Example 2:

45 ÷ 5 = 

We need to count in our 5 times tables until we get to 45.

5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45

So 9 lots of 5 are 45.

45 ÷ 5 = 9

Please write out your times tables if you need to! 

1 star - dividing by 1, 2, 5 and 10

2 star - dividing by 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8

3 star - dividing by 4, 8, 6 and 7

I have also attached the whole sheet (times tables 1 - 12) if you want to try some others as well.

Writing workshop

Please practise using apostrophes to show possession (when someone owns something). Use the presentation slides to recap how to use apostrophes and then complete the sheet.


This is our final session on Christianity so I would like you to read through the information on the webpage to revise what we have learnt over this unit. Use the information and other facts you can remember to write a summary of what you have learnt about Christianity and the Church.
