Suggested activities for w/c 30th March

Week Commencing 30/03/20:

Below you will find suggested activities which would be great for your child/children to keep up with schooling as much as possible, as well as hopefully keeping them engaged!

 I do not expect the children to be working all day.

I suggest reading should be done every day, either for children to read independently, be read to or listen to an audio book.

I also suggest children do some maths every day.

 If the children would like to show me a photograph of something they have done, or if they have any questions, they can send me an email. This will be good writing and typing practice!

I will be checking my emails during normal school hours.

I would like to help as much as I possibly can.

Hi Class 4 J

 I hope you have all had a good week. I know everything feels very strange at the moment, however I know you will all be coping excellently and being super positive, because you always are.

 Mrs. Roberts, Mr. Davis and I are missing you all and we’re looking forward to when we see you all again.

 I have had lovely emails from some of you, telling and showing me what you’ve been up to, so thank you. I would love to hear from all of you soon.

 I have read every day, just like I hope you’ve been doing. Please let me know what you are reading at the moment. If you write a convincing book review, I’ll be persuaded to read the book too!

 Well done for all your hard work so far, you are all brilliant and brainy!

 Make sure you are helpful at home this week; I know your parents will appreciate it.

 Keep smiling! J

 Best Wishes,

 Miss Bacon

P.S. Benjamin says hello!


  • Sing the Times Tables songs. The links for these can be found on the file at the bottom of this page called ‘Week Commencing 23 March’.

·         Practise telling the time on an analogue clock and writing the digital equivalent. Remember to include am or pm to show whether it is the morning or afternoon. Can you convert between 12 and 24-hour time too?


·         Explore doubles with this online game:


·         Use an online bus timetable to work out time intervals. You could write your own questions to answer. E.g. How long is the bus journey from Anglia Square to the hospital?


·         Learn about imperial and metric units using My Maths (this is especially important for Year 5). Create two posters, one explaining imperial units with examples and the other explaining metric units with examples.


  • Cook or bake something involving metric measurements. Work out how much is needed of each ingredient for two batches of the recipe?  Three?  Half a batch?


For all writing tasks, plan your writing first. Use a wide range of vocabulary and punctuation. Make sure your handwriting is neat and legible. Read through your work, check your spellings, punctuation and grammar and neatly correct any errors.

 Read independently/listen to an audio book or someone else reading to you. You should be reading every day, even if it is only one page.

    When you have read a whole book, write down the name of the title and author.

    Would you recommend the book to Miss Bacon? If so, write a book review, for things to include see the file ‘Week Commencing 23 March’ at the bottom of this page.

 Practise your handwriting. If you haven’t got a pen license yet, this is your chance to persuade your teacher to give you one by showing them lots and lots of your beautiful, neat writing!

In the future, people are going to be talking about the 2020 Coronavirus and children will be studying it. Keep a diary and write in it every day, explaining what you have been up to and how you are feeling. It will be really interesting for you to read it in the future and maybe even read it to your own children!

Make a card, write in it and send it to someone to surprise them and make them smile. 

Write an alternative ending for a story you have read.

Use a thesaurus to learn a new word and its meaning every day this week. Can you use these words in sentences during the day to impress your family?


Art: Take part in The Rainbow Trail by making a rainbow to display in your house so passers- by can see it. Be really creative with your rainbows, I would love to see photographs of them!

 Make paper aeroplanes with your family. Test them to see whose aeroplane flies the furthest. Measure how far they all flew and work out the differences between all of the distances.

 PE: Join Joe Wicks at 9a.m every morning on YouTube for a fun workout.  I have been doing this and it’s great but exhausting!

 Create an obstacle course in your garden or house. Make it as challenging as you can but be careful! You could send me a photo or video of you completing the course.

 Computing: Practise dance mat typing on BBC Bitesize:

Make a PowerPoint presentation all about your favourite animal.

Science: Type in ‘Edinburgh live zoo cam’ into Google. You can see the animals in the zoo live and watch them being fed etc. I am very excited about this!

Choose an animal and create a food chain for it. Research its natural habitat and draw a picture of it and label it. You could even create a shoebox habitat if you haven’t already done this for homework.

Topic: Make a table of similarities and differences between the UK and North America.

RE: Read a story from the Bible/a religious text.

Answer this question using full sentences: Why do some Christians choose to give up something for Lent?

French: Begin learning numbers in French. Give yourself a target to be able to say/write French numbers up to 50 for example, or even 100!

Play Bingo with numbers in French.

Music: Make up a 20 second song you can sing whilst washing your hands.


  • Do at least one random act of kindness every day. Keep a list of the acts of kindness you have done. Describe how they made you feel and how they made other people feel.
  • Play board games.
  • Play charades.
  • Create a marble run.
  • Learn a magic trick.
