Good morning Oak Class! Today’s picture is one that a friend sent me of a stag walking on the shore line of Loch Nevis in Scotland at Christmas.

I hope that you had a good weekend and had a rest!

Don’t forget we are having a live maths lesson this morning at 10:00am – set your alarm! 


LI – Describe and extend number sequences including those with multiplication and division steps, inconsistent steps, alternating steps and where the step size is a decimal.

If you can’t make the live lesson I have recorded a version for you to watch here, I couldn’t get the hyper link to work but if you copy the link and paste it onto a new tab and click play in the middle of the picture it will play.

What are the missing numbers in this sequence

____, 2.4, 4.8,___, 19.2 ____

Success criteria

  1. Work out the step size by considering the how to get from one number to the next, and how many steps this takes.
  2. Check that this works for getting from a different number in the sequence to another.
  3. Apply this step size/rule to find the numbers in the rest of the sequence.
  4. If you need to find the previous number in the sequence then you need to complete the inverse operation.

Now let’s look at these number sequences – the first A- E section are easier than the second A-E, these are harder, remember the success criteria that you need to find a pair of numbers and find the difference then apply that difference to find the missing numbers

A – 2.5, ___, 4.5, 5.5, ____

B – 9.8, 9.9, ___, ____, 10.2

C – 20.8, ____, 20.4, 20.2, ____

D – 50.7, ____, _____, 49.8, 49.5

E – 500, 350, ____, ____



A – 6.6, 13.2, ____, 26.4, ____

B – 1,000, _____, 750, 625, ____

C – 12.15, 12.275, ____, 12.525

D – 57.3, ____, 56.7, 56.4, ____

Focus Theme: It’s Magic!

This week we are focusing on all things magic! You will explore extracts from the ‘The Nowhere Emporium’ by Ross Mackenzie, ‘Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone’ by JK Rowling and the poem ‘The Magic Box’ by Kit Wright. Based on this, you will then write your own opening chapter based on a magical shop.

Day 1 – Monday

LI – To identify key phrases and evidence to support an idea.


  • Read the prologue of the Nowhere Emporium By Ross MacKenzie – pages 7-10. You can find the extract here: Nowhere Emporium FINAL opening extract
  • Select your ten favourite words/phrases from the prologue and write them down.
  • Then select your overall favourite and explain why you have chosen this.
  • ‘The Nowhere Emporium is magic.’ Find all the evidence in the text which supports this statement.
  • Create a poster to advertise/persuade someone to enter the Nowhere Emporium based on what you have read. Think about selecting some of your favourite words/phrases from the first activity to use for your poster.
  • Based on what you have read, would you want to read this book? Give reasons for your answer.



In science today I would like you to complete the sheet here which will help recap your learning from last week and fix some of the information into your long term memory. The circulatory system science Mon 18.1.21

The next activity I would like you to do is to watch the video I have made on the digestive system. Please log into Google Classroom and I have put the link on the class stream page. Fingers crossed it works for you.

The final activity is to label the different parts of the digestive system with their name and function. If you don’t have a printer you can copy the diagram. Activity Sheet Digestive System Functions – Black and White
