Good morning all and welcome to Wednesday’s home learning activities.

In maths today I have set a challenge on Mathletics for you to have a go at.

Here is today’s extra maths activity. Have a go at filling in these 3D shape properties.

As Wednesday would have been our times table test, follow this link to TopMarks and have a go at hit the button.

Today’s English,

Read and enjoy this poem out loud together:

The Dentist and the Crocodile by Roald Dahl

Read the poem again out loud. Improve how you read it using an excitable voice where needed (expression).

Spot new and interesting words (write them down) and discuss what they mean, e.g. require, repair, quivered, quaked, fearsome, molars, weeping, despair, and any other new words you find.

Also, use a dictionary or  WordHippo

Look up the new words found in the poem to find synonyms (words that mean the same) by using a thesaurus or WordHippo.

Write these down. This will help to practise spelling some new words and extend your vocabulary.

Discuss your favourite parts of the poem.

Write a poem review using these ideas:

I like this poem because…

My favourite words in the poem are…

I would recommend this poem because

Out of 10 stars, I would give this poem… because…

Check spelling and punctuation in each sentence together.

You could also read the poem out loud, film it, and send to a family member/friend.

Then share your poem review and ask for their opinion too!

I know that sounds like a lot but don’t worry about doing it all. Work through what you can and enjoy your English work.


Check for your new Spellings on Spelling shed.


In RE today we are going to continue looking at rules. In what ways do rules make the world a better place?
Godly Play calls the commandments, ‘The Ten Best Ways.’

Is this a good title?  Do the you agree they are the ten best ways to live?
How hard is it to keep these and other rules?
If everyone followed these rules what would the world be like? 
Choose one of the ten commandments and imagine that it hadn’t been given. What effect would that have on the world?


Come on down to the stilling time disco/yoga party.


Today’s joke of the day comes from Nate.

Knock knock!

Whose there?


Waddle who?

Waddle I do if you don’t open the door?

What an excellent joke, well done Nate.

I hope you all have a great day and remember to keep smiling.
