Welcome to Terrific Tuesday!


Today’s pictures are from a walk that I took at the weekend. I was walking on a river path which I haven’t walked on since Lockdown began and was totally amazed to see people had painted hundreds of stones and left them all along the path; in walls, on the floor, on monuments as you can see on the photos!  There were stones dedicated to the NHS, doctors, nurses, delivery drivers etc but then there were also stones of objects that people like such as turtles, cartoon characters and sheep! These stones were an unexpected find and gave me real joy.

Extension Group

Using your research from yesterday, today you are going to have a go at creating your own imaginary robot!

When thinking about the robot you will design you should be keeping these questions to the forefront of your mind:

  • What would you like your robot to do?
  • What would its key function be?
  • What might it look like?

Draw a diagram with labels or create a fact file on your robot.  View this clip here for ideas


Try to use include some of the technical or more formal vocabulary you may have read above, or heard in the clips from yesterday. (e.g. futuristic, microscopic, series of actions, powered by, designed for, specific task, etc).

12th May Maths

LI –  To multiply fractions by fractions


We are continuing to study from the Oak Academy website. It is similar to the White Rose Hub in that there is a teaching segment followed by independent work. We would welcome your feedback towards the end of the week on what you thought about this website and comparing it with the White Rose Hub. Please click the link below and scroll down to Week 1, ensure that you click on Tuesday and then complete the lesson. Each lesson starts with a quiz, then you watch a video. At various points in the video the teacher will ask you to pause the video and complete the task set. Sometimes this activity is shown on the video other times you will need to minimize the video and click on the button next activity (usually found on the left side of the page). When you have completed the task press resume video (usually found on the top right of the page)


LI – To understand equivalent fractions

Stilling time

Please see Mrs O’Donnell’s post for today’s stilling time activity.


Keep going with Mr Garvey’s activities or Joe Wicks PE, or some similar exercise such as Fitness Marshall, other online exercises. The most important thing is that you get your blood pumping and get yourself out of breath!

Have a good morning’s learning!
