Happy Friday Cedar, Rowan, Hawthorn, Sycamore, Beech and Larch,
We hope you are ready for another day of learning from home. It has been an absolute joy reading your comments on the blog and receiving emails with pictures of your work. You can send any of your learnings to us, so that we can see your wonderful work and support with ideas if you do get stuck on a particular learning.
email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
Once again, we will be beginning our day with Joe Wicks at 9am on his YouTube channel. Later on we will join Natasha Lamb on YouTube also for our British Sign Language lesson. Furthermore, Rob Biddulph an author and illustrator has a draw along we are going to attempt use #DrawWithRob or this link to find it – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bhyCxVPb1qU. If you would like to brush up on some of your Spanish, you will find lots of videos on BBC Bitesize or click this link https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/subjects/zxsvr82. In addition, I (Miss Taylor) have been really enjoying using the Duolingo app which you can download on any device or tablet and has lots of free content to help you learn Spanish.
Below you will find your English, maths and an R.E. task today. We are really looking forward to seeing the creative ways you approach todays task.
We are missing you all and wish you a wonderful Easter.

I made a story board and wrote some speech
“I think we are lost,” exclaimed the shorter man.
“What is happening,” screamed the boss
“I am hero,” showed of the boss
We set up home, well actually we didn’t know the way home we just went the way we thought was home. I wasn’t sure it was the right way but I always have to listen to the boss.later we arrived at Island. I definitely did not see this before. we went around the island exploring but we found nothing. The boss was annoyed. unbelievably, he let me have a chance to take us home. it took hours but we finally arrived I couldn’t wait to see my kids and my wife.
A storm appeared. we are going to be eaten up by the waves. There was no chance I could survive. but I had the tiniest bit of hope. it was getting worse. now we were definitely not going to survive. unbelievably, the bus stop the store and come to waves. I was safe.
A great effort Klea – all 3 tasks completed. Well done!
Well done for correctly punctuating your direct speech. Do you think there might be a question mark missing?
Could you read your story out loud to your family and see if you could include some subordinating conjunctions?
The last sentence was supposed to be Unbelievably the boss stoped the storm and calmed the waves. I was safe. It was just a typo
Hi Freya, great work on the maths conundrum and part of the problem of the day! Why do you think the conundrum works?
As the tall man bravely leapt into the air, he grabbed his sharp, pointy spear ready to throw it inside the sea monster’s mouth. The ginormous creature that was as black as the midnight sky, screamed as he felt the pain of the spear dig into his throat. As the men and their shattered boat dropped back into the ocean, the monster closed its mouth and sank just before he got chance to eat them. The fishermen used the pieces of the boat to make a raft and sail back to shore.
The sky darkened as thunder and lightening crashed down around them. The boat rocked side by side as their pet seagull clung on to the edges. The sea roared like a hungry lion and large waves started to rise. The men shivered with fear as the water splashed against them.
Gorgeous writing Bella! It’s been lovely to see you commenting on the blog everyday. I hope you have been enjoying some of the activities! Have a lovely Easter!
For speech bubbles, i think the first sigh that the large man lets out could translate to, “did you hear hear that?” then the sort of soft sound the smaller man makes could be, “Yes” then the shout the larger man made could be, “WELL LETS GO AND FIND OUT WHAT IT WAS THEN!”
I think the ending to the story could be that the creature swallows their boat but the two men survive and fight it with their weapons they were seen carrying in the video.
As the waves whipped the boat strike after strike, the wood started to peel off and form itself a whirlwind of debris. The two men shouted with fear and pointed their spears up to the sky helplessly hoping for a miracle to occur at the moment.
Great Isaac, I am forever in awe of your fantastic vocabulary choices – just remember to start direct speech with a capital e.g “Did you hear hear that?” and to use exit punctuation before ending speech e.g “Yes,” or “Yes.”
What kind of literacy learning have you enjoyed most Isaac? What would you like to see more of after Easter?
The action part of the storm.
As a terrible mist gathered, the wind howled like a mournful wolf and the waves crashed down like giants throwing boulders. As the mist rose it grew thicker and thicker. Creatures lurked beneath your boat making it sway from side to side. Deep down into the ocean blackness, are your nightmares, goosebumps rise up on your skin. The deeper you go into the mist the more likely you are to get eaten.
This has given me goosebumps Eleanor! Fabulous work, I love ‘the wind howled like a mournful wolf’. It has been great to see you commenting on the blog, which activities have you enjoyed the most?
Have a lovely Easter.
Crashing and roaring;
Soaring, it’s pouring.
Rocking the boat,
No words from their throat.
Lost out at sea,
Hoping to flee.
Nautically, spinning in motion;
Surrounded by Neptunes deep ocean.
Waves punching like fists,
Expansive, uprising, briny cliffs.
Devouring them whole;
Down to the darkness, pitch black coal!
This is a fantastic poem Cosmo. Varied punctuation, rhyme, imagery and such unusual vocabulary. I love the words nautically, expansive and briny. I can just picture the scene!
2008 – 600 = 1408
2020 + 1408 = 3428
I’m not sure why this didn’t work for me so i’ll try it with my brother.
2006 – 900 = 1706
2020 + 1706 = 3726
This still doesn’t work so i’m going to say that this formula doesn’t work for everyone but maybe for a few.
2350 + 235 = 2585 made on Tuesday
2350 + 2585 = 4935 total of Monday and Tuesday
7500 – 4935 = 2565 total to be made on Wednesday
To check, 2350 + 2585 + 2565 = 7500
1.8 x 0.25 = 0.45
250g of carrots (1/4) = 45p
2.6 x 1000 = £2.60
0.3 x 1000 = 300g
0.3 x 2.6 = 0.78
300g of Parsnips would be 78p.
Great maths work Eleanor. How did you work these out?
A massive monster ! It crushes the boat into bits and pieces. The seagull and the skinny man jump when the boat smash into the wave. It was 560,900 feet tall. Actually it was a tsunami. They fell into the water like a dolphin falling onto there back . They died but in 1998 some one called harry discovered the seagull. It was a bit bony but he took it to the lab.
I love your simile Jacob, well done! I am so pleased to see you commenting on the blog everyday. Have you got an activity that you enjoyed the most so far?
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter!
Amber. ( the man’s names are Bruno and Tom)
The two monsters were speeding towards each other. The whale, it’s teeth glinting like sharp knives embedded in clay, and Bruno, his harpoon poised in the perfect position to inflict a deep gash in the rubbery, tar like skin. However, before Tom could see who attacked who, he felt a jolt in the boat. The whale had raised a pectoral fin to defend itself, thus capsizing the model. Tom fell into the waves, the freezing water enveloping him in her icy clutches. Down he went, for however hard he kicked, he could not surface. His mind went black, black, b l a c k , kl a b c ,bklac
I will do red after I forgot to say
Great to hear from you Polly 🙂 well done for commenting on the blog – I hope your home learning has been going okay so far.
What a dramatic end to the story! You’ve given me goosebumps – i’m sure there is an author in you yet Polly! Fantastic vocabulary choices.
Well done 🙂 Have a go at the maths too if you can.
Suddenly, a wave ? crashed over the tiny boat.Everyone had drowned even the seagull. The next day they found their selfs washed up on a deserted island ? and had realised they had turned into zombies ?♂️. The two men had lots of scars, wrinkles and a green face and the seagull had a turned out nose along with a cracked face.
Lots of creativity Freya, I don’t think I would want to be on that island with them! Well done for all your comments on the blogs over the last 2 weeks, I have been very impressed. What have you enjoyed most so far?
Have a brilliant Easter!
I tried the shoe number one and it worked for me I tried it on my brother and it does not work on his I think it only works for even number shoes
Well done Klea for working out the calculations accurately.
My shoe size is 5 and it works for me. How old is your brother and what is his shoe size?
The sum worked for me. I think that it works for everyone because the gap between year you were born and the year today matches how old you are.
Start with the number 236
Add your favourite number
Take Away 156
Take Away 100
The answer will be your favourite number!
1. 2565 toys
2. 250g carrots = 45p
3. 300g parsnips = 78p
Well spotted Bella! When I did your conundrum I ended with the number 7, which is my favourite number! Great work on the problems of the day!
That god is loving and compassionate
I picked I is the most important because if you disobey the rules there is always a consequence.
I picked h as the least important because everyone knows there is water inside of a fish
So interesting to read reasons for your Diamond 9 Klea.
Were you surprised that God rescued Jonah? Does he love people in spite of their behaviour?
The last two numbers do fit as I will be 10 this year.
Great work Toby! It’s been lovely to see you commenting on the blog, what has been your favourite activity so far?
Have a lovely Easter!
I think the most important statement is ‘People must be good’ because if you’re not good and kind to people you’ll make them upset.
The least important is ‘It’s wet inside a fish’ because it’s not important to this story.
That is very true Bella! Well done!
Suddenly, the sky went dark. Then a little rain pattered on the floor of the boat. It grew and it grew until there was an incessant plashing of water as hard as bullets raining down from above. They heard a great roll of thunder, a crescendo of cymbals crashing at random intervals. Then the lightning came. It was as spindly as a spider leg yet as powerful as a black hole. Sucking the happiness out of the world as it hit the boat, the two humans felt as if the had stuck their fingers in an electric socket the size of an elephant.
I know a black hole isn’t bright and light like lightning but I was describing the energy. 🙂
‘incessant plashing’ is my favourite phrase – I think I recognise the word plashing from a Wuthering Heights extract we looked at in school – well done for drawing from author’s ideas as well as your own to deliver a fantastically engaging piece for the reader 🙂
Well done, Miss Spaven
Green I am going to do storyboard but i wrote speech.
“We’re going to die,”said the short man
“Know were not dying,”he shouted in his face
As we travelled further in the sea we saw a something coming our way we thought it was nothing but it was a island moving. What was it? is it friendly?we paddled faster but it was fast my boss told me to shoot it with a harpoon gun but I refused.
I think they will get ambushed by something majestic.
As night watched us a storm appeared. It was like Zeus was angry and was trying to get us. Waves tried to devour us into little microscopic size. The storm raged like it was roaring we hanged on our boat; the tempest grew bigger and became more angry as i lost hope and fate.
2 2350 + 235=2585
3 250g of carrots (1/4) = 45p.
4 300g of parnsnips would be 78p.
Eduard you have remembered how to punctuate speech accurately – well done. Just check for any missing full stops.
In your amber task, is there a missing comma after a fronted adverbial? Your use of rhetorical questions really build suspense.
I love the thought of the storm ‘watching us – super personification.
Thank you for showing your working in the maths calculations. Did you try Miss Taylor’s conundrum?
Whilst at sea, colossal waves rose and fell as they swept a boat, with two men, out to the unforgiving ocean. A gigantic whale, which ruled the territory, stalked the boat like a tiger closing in on its prey before the floating craft drifted onto a huge wave that curled into the mouth of the beast. As the two men plunged into the endless black, they believed that this was their fate……..
Lovely use of adjectives Cadi, I’m intrigued about what’s going to happen next!
Great work on the last 2 maths problems, just check the first one again.
Monday = 2350
Tuesday = 2350 + 235
Wednesday = ?
Altogether = 7500
It’s been brilliant to see you commenting on the blogs everyday Cadi, which activities have you enjoyed the most so far?
Have a lovely Easter!
Rapidly, the ferocious storm was about to consume us! My heart was racing as fast as a cheetah.i was terrified.As the storm came closer and closer butterflies fluttered in my stomach.It felt like my life was over.i couldn’t breath.
What a great fronted adverbial to begin an exciting story! Good use of a simile and then a short sentence. I wonder if there is a comma missing after your subordinate phrase?
I wonder what might happen next?
Green – Speech of characters
Big man says -” Oh no we are lost, the mist is getting closer! ”
The thin man says ” I am getting bored now.”
“Why do you not help me?” Says the angry boss, and grabs his work mate.
“I think I am drowning !” the big man says,as he falls over board.
“Oh no my boss has gone,” said the frightened sailor, looking for his boss.”
Amber – End of story in my words
They found their way home, because a huge whale flicked them in the air and they landed on another boat.
Red – Write about storm
There was a giant storm that appeared in the sky, and everything turned dark even the boat!
The waves hammered against the boat.The boat is fruit in a blender, as it is tossed around.
Well done Rose, lovely use of a simile! I am so pleased to see you completing the activities every day, which has been your favourite so far?
I hope you have a great Easter!
These last two digits do not work for I am turning 11 this year.
2547 more need to be made on Wednesday.
The carrots would be 45p
The parsnips would be 78p
You are quite right about the carrots and parsnips Freya. Just have a look at question 1 again. 2350 toys on Monday. 2350+235 on Tuesday. How many more needed to get to 7500 toys?
In terms of shoe size.
Now look at the last 2 digits – is it your age (you may not have turned 11 yet?)
1. 2565 on Wednesday
Hi Marcus. Spot on! Well done. I hope you’ve had a good day. Enjoy the Easter break. Mrs Bacon 🙂
Great maths Marcus, well done! I would love to know how you solved these.
I hope you have a great Easter!
One day on the surface of the sea there was a boat in the middle of nowhere. Suddenly this big fog came. The bird and the boy where scared but the man said “why are you not brave you are all ways scared!”shouted the man.This big thing came and it was watching them,the man stepped out and stood bravely.
And then he fell into the water and all most drowned, but suddenly he shot up from the water the boy lit up a lantern and raised it up.There was this big wave coming there way they where very scared it was getting closer and closer until!.They saw the man shot up and caught the weapon and killed the enormous whale.
What an exciting story and well done for including speech – just remember the key things we need when punctuating direct speech.
I like your use of adverbs like suddenly and bravely to explain their actions more clearly.
Great work with maths questions 2 and 3. Just have a look at question 1 again. 2350 toys on Monday. 2350+235 on Tuesday. How many more needed to get to 7500 toys?
Sorry my mistake the answer is 2,565
2350 on Monday
2350+235=2585 on Tuesday
They were going in a circle and found their way home.
4915 to get to 7500.
I’ve done all the tasks now and shown it to my dad.
1.yes it will work for everybody in my household
2.It works because it asks you to take away the year you were born from the year now.
3.They need to make 2565 more toys.
1.To be good and kind.
2.I picked g as my most important because you then learn to never give up.
3.I picked e as my least important because you should not to do it again.
Storyboard of the video – Green
Scene 1 – As the two men were sailing across the salty sea, they had
suddenly spotted one of the greatest creatures in the ocean. Eventhough they were scared the boss (the larger man) was trying to shout for help.
Scene 2 – When both men were worried, they both fell of the boat like they had turns to do that. They bot were using their bright light to find the other person. The larger man was trying to use his brown stick to poke the creature so it wouldn’t hurt his little feather friend.
Scene 3 – This weird thing had shown him self to the others so that would frighten them.The boat was shaking side to side.Everyone’s hands were loosing their grip on the boat to stop sliding. How would they ever escape from the lightning ?
Speech – Green – ” I think we are lost in the abandoned sea ,” cried the red-beared man loudly” What are we going to do now boss ?” shouted the little man.” Well you are the boss so you should know what to do at this point,” exlaimed the te shorter man.
Story Ending – Amber – As the tall man screamed and leaped in the air,he grabbed his pointy spear, he was ready to throw it in the monster’s mouth.The shorter was amazed because he never so his boss leap in the air so bravely.The midnight sky screamed like it was in pain.The creature ,which was as black as the sky, came stomping towards them because the red-beard man had nearly killed him since the spear went down his throat.
Action part for the storm – The terrible mist gathered together as the men screamed even more.The lightning and the storm frightened everyone.There was no chance if they would survive but they had he tiniest bit of hope.It was getting even more WORSE.
Maths:- The condrum worked for me. How I got my age.
Shoe Size : 3
Add 2 zeros : 300
Subtract the year you are born : 300 – 2010 = -2290
Add the year today : 4310
The last two digits tell me how old I will be this year : 10
1) The factory has to make 2565 more toys on Wednesday
2) £1.80 x 0.25 = 45p. The carrots would cost 0.45p
3) £2.60 x 0.30 = 0.78p. The parsnips would cost 0.78p
Wider Curriculum – RE :-
The message of the video is that everyone should be kind and when someone makes a mistake you should ask for forgiveness. No to be wicked.
1) It is never late to change your behavior
2) People must be good
3) You feel bad when youv’e done something wrong
4) Prayer helps
5) People must listen to God
6) You cannot escape from God
7) We have to obey rules in life
8) Boats can be dangerous
9) It’s wet inside a fish
Diamond nine – RE – I picked ‘g’ from my list as my most important because after you have done something wrong you can always make it up to the person you have hurt or say sorry.I picked ‘h’from my list as my most least important because ‘h’ doesn’t really say anything about the video beneath. It does not tell anyone that if it is a good thing.
