Reading Comprehension


LI: Retrieve information from a non-fiction text


Last week in your DT/History task you started learning about Stonehenge. Today’s non-fiction text will teach you even more about Stonehenge.

Read this text and then very carefully look for the answers to the questions.


There are 3 levels of difficulty so choose the one that is right for you. The answers are included too, so that your parents or teachers can help you check your answers.


LI: Write an information text

Today we will start writing our first draft of our own version of ‘The Truth about Trolls’ in the style of an information text. We will work on this throughout the week and to help you, you can use your planner from Friday as well as the various pieces of work you have done based on ‘The Truth about Trolls’ over the past couple of weeks. However, don't worry if you don't have these - you will still be able to do it without.


Please watch my lesson on the 2 videos below`and then use your planner, your copy of the original text (another copy below) and the worksheets you used to complete ‘sentences of 3’ and describing trolls using adjectives and alliteration.

Today we will begin by writing the following:

  • Heading
  • Introduction
  • What do Trolls look like?

LI: Interpret pictograms (2, 5 and 10)


Please watch the learning video on this link


Then complete the worksheets. Try to do these on ClassDojo if you can so you can complete them on screen and save to your portfolio. You can also find them here, though. Remember, if it is very tricky you can do just the first worksheet but challenge yourself as much as you can!



LI: Use a timer in a program


Today we will develop our skills using the timer tool. You will use the timer in various ways in your programming to create magic tricks, fix the monkey’s program and create your own magic show.


Your task is set as a 2Do in Purple Mash.


Times Tables practise


LI: Practise rapid recall of multiplication and division facts


Just select the sheet below for the times tables you are working on and have a practise. If you and your parents/ teacher think you're ready to move on as we go forward then please do - you'll be able to amaze me with your progress after lockdown!
