Task 1 - Maths:

Today's Maths activity is revisiting and recapping Weight which we looked at in school last week. 


The activities have been shared with you through the HWB (you can find them in the shared files). These activities have been labelled '1 star' and '2 stars' in terms of difficulty. Children only have to complete ONE of the activities. (They do not have to complete both activities unless they want to.) 


The j2e5 documents can be opened and edited. There are explanations for where each question should be answered (most should either be under the picture or next to the problem). 

Please note there are at least 2 pages to each activity.


Once the document has been edited and all the questions have been answered then children must click the save button and the document will save to their own folder on Just2easy, then we will be able to see this. 


If children are having any problems with completing or accessing the particular activity, please let us know by sending us a message via the speech bubble.  


Task 2 - Writing:

Today, we will be continuing our stories! Watch the video to find out what you need to do next!

Task 1 - Spelling and Grammar:

Here's Miss Cleal to explain the tasks ...

Spelling and Grammar

Still image for this video


1. Recap last week's spellings (ight) - 

height,        weight,        might,        slight,        delight,        fright,       mighty,        lightning,        eighteen,        eighty


2. Learn this week's spellings (contractions) - 

I have -> I've,         I would -> I'd,        they are -> they're,        were not -> weren't,        have not -> haven't,        would not -> wouldn't,         he will -> he'll,        she will -> she'll

3. Practice writing sentences with contractions (record your work on Just2easy or on paper).

Challenge - include speech, e.g. "I'd love to have a new skipping rope for Christmas!" explained Ben.


Connectives make our writing more fluent. You can use a connective to join two short sentences together to make one long sentence.


We will be focussing on these connectives - 

and,       nor,        but,        or,         for,        yet

Write some sentences using connectives.

Visit to choose your image/picture to write about.


You can record your sentences on Just2easy or on paper.

Task 2 - Maths:

Today's Maths activity is looking at some problems to do with Capacity. 


The activities will be shared with you through the HWB as j2e5 documents. Similarly to before, they will be labelled as either 1 Star Capacity or 2 Stars Capacity in terms of difficulty. 


The j2e5 activities can be opened and edited, each question explains where it can be answered (either to the side or underneath). Again, there are at least 2 pages to both activities, so please remember to look at the next page. 


Children can test the first problem out using measuring cups and water if they wish to and this helps them to answer the questions.  Alternatively, they can just work this out mentally, the choice is yours! 


Please do remember to save the j2e5 document so that we can view the work the children have done. 


Send us a message over the speech bubbles on HWB if you are having any problems accessing or completing the task.
