Purple Mash












Reading for pleasure and

Times Tables practise



LI: Retrieve information from the story.


Please log in to Purple Mash. You will find a ‘2Do’ to read Chapter 2 of our Class Story, ‘The Settlers'. After you have read the chapter you have two tasks.

  1. Answer the multiple choice questions. You can find all the answers in the first chapter you have read. These questions can be done online, they are set as a ‘2Do’. Or you can print the questions and answer on paper. The document is below.


     2. Sequence the events from the chapter in order. You can view or print this task below.



LI: Write a poem


We are going to write our own poems based on the structure and style of ‘Dreaming the Unicorn’, the poem we worked on last week. This task will take 2 sessions so you will spend your English lessons on Wednesday and Thursday this week completing it.


Reread the poem to someone else with your actions you created last week. Can you write a similar poem based on one of the mythical creatures that you have researched?


Use this pattern:

Stanza 1 Say what you dreamed about and where the dream took place.

Stanza 2 Describe what your creature does.

Stanza 3 Describe how you felt.

Stanza 4 Describe how you wake up and what you find as proof that you really saw the creature.

Stanza 5 Say where you keep this special reminder (e.g.feather, shiny scale) and how you feel whenever you look at it.


If you still have time on Thursday, write your poem out in your best handwriting and add an illustration.


Below is a copy of ‘Dreaming the Unicorn’ by Tony Mitton.

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: Create a timeline of the Stone Age


Yesterday afternoon we had a TEAMS history lesson about the Chronology of the Stone Age and today I would like you to create your own Stone Age timeline. Don't worry if you missed this, you will still be able to do this task.


Attached is the 'Stone Age Timeline Ordering Activity' - you have some timeline cards which I would like you to put in order to create your Stone Age timeline.

Remember, that for dates that are BC, a higher number means it happened a longer time ago.


You can either copy the dates and pictures to draw your own timeline on screen or with pencil paper or if you have a printer, you may choose to print, cut out and stick them in order to create a timeline.


I have attached a copy of the Stone Age timeline we looked at in our TEAMS lesson, in case you need something to help you and so that you can check your dates are in the correct order.


Have fun!

Times Tables practise


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!
