Welcome to Wednesday.

We have been very busy using our times tables. Now we are going to move on to division or sharing. This video shows division clearly.


Would you like to try Q1 and Q2?


Try the sharing questions on the Wednesday Maths Sharing page in the files at the bottom of this page. Choose a page to answer and challenge yourself to try 2 or 4 questions from the next page.


Today, you are going to use the skills you have practised so far like list sentences and past tense verbs. When you re-write the paragraph, make it sound just like the start of the story. Use the PowerPoint called Wednesday Cinderella Paragraph, to guide your writing.  Click on the smily face to watch me write the paragraph.   smiley

Practise your common exception words for 10 minutes and make sure you read to an adult for 20 minutes. Have you chosen a book on Epic, yet?

Then see if you can work out how to make a branching database on j2e.


Trying yourself is called tinkering. Then if you have some time left use Prodigy, I know you all like that.


Miss Brown is going to teach you all about the UK. Can you name the four countries of the UK? What about the seas that surround the UK?

Last week we looked around our homes and the classroom to see if we could find objects that were made out of different materials like wood, metal, plastic, glass. We also wondered why the windows were made out glass and why the chairs were made out plastic. Today, we are thinking about the properties of those materials, whether they are they soft, hard, flexible, stretchy. Watch the video and then try explaining materials were chosen for particular objects. Use the Material Choices page to record your answers.



Everyone gets a bit cross or annoyed or frustrated at times. Miss Jadoon is back with some good advice.
