Good morning and welcome to Tuesday’s home learning activities.

In maths today we will be looking at subtracting 3 digit numbers with no exchanging.

Here is today’s maths sheet.

Subtract 3-digit numbers from 3-digit numbers – no exchange


In English today, we will be looking at

Read and enjoy the activities suggested for keeping active on this website:

10 Minute Shake Up

Try out some of these with your family!

Now design your own shake up activity.

Write the instructions following the same structure as the activity instructions you’ve just read.

Design a title for your own shake-up activity.

Write your instructions using numbered steps.

Include some pictures and diagrams.

Now try out your shake-up activity. Is it clear for others to follow?

Return to your writing and edit the instructions if you need to. Do you need to make the steps clearer for your audience to follow?

Finally, publish your shake-up instructions by writing them on a poster and sending to your teacher, classmates, or family members for them to try out!

In Science today we will be looking at sun safety.

The sun emits (gives out) rays of light.

We can’t see all the types of light that come from the sun.

The visible spectrum is the name for the light that we can see, and is made up of the colours of the rainbow:



Some UV rays are blocked by the ozone layer, but most of the UV light from the sun reaches us on earth.

The amount of UV light that reaches us depends on different things.

It is stronger at midday and in the summer.

If there are no clouds there is more UV light.

It also gets stronger nearer to the equator.

The location can make a difference too – water, sand and snow all reflect UV light, making it stronger.

UV light causes sun burn, wrinkles and skin cancer, damages the eyes and can change the colour of some materials.


Set up an investigation to see the effects of UV light.

1.Cut out several shapes from black card.
2.Place them on a piece of coloured paper, and position them in a sunny spot for a week.
3.When you take the shapes off, you should see that the paper around the shapes has changed colour slightly.
4.The paper under the shapes will still look the same.
5.The UV light could not get to the paper under the shapes, so the paper under the shapes has not been damaged by the UV rays.

Light enters the eye through the pupil.

Look closely at your pupil in the mirror. Close your eyes for 30 seconds, then open them and look at your pupil. What do you notice?

The pupil grows bigger in the dark to allow more light to enter the eye, and gets smaller in bright light.

If too much light comes through the pupil, it can damage the retina.

It causes pain, so that you instantly close your eyes, or turn away from a bright light.

It is very important that you never look directly at the sun, as the light can damage your eyes very quickly.

Bright lights indoors can also damage your eyes, so you should never look at them, or shine lights into anyone’s eyes.

To protect your skin from UV rays, you can cover up or wear sun cream.

But what can you do to protect your eyes?

There are several things you should do to protect your eyes from the sun or other bright lights.

•You should wear sunglasses when out in the sun. Sunglasses have a UV rating to show how well they block UV rays. Make sure you get sunglasses with a high UV rating.
•Some sunglasses don’t have a UV rating – these are really just toy sunglasses and don’t protect your eyes. In fact, because they have dark lenses but no UV filter, the pupil opens wider, actually letting in more UV rays!
•Wrap around sunglasses are best, as they cover more of the eye.
•You can also wear a hat with a wide brim to shade you eyes.
•Make sure you have regular eye tests to check your eyes.
•Even if you are wearing sunglasses and a hat, you should still never look directly at the sun.
In stilling time today I would like you to have a go at some spider power yoga.
