Today’s lesson continues to look at converting measures.

This video lesson is about pounds. Pounds is another unit of measurement for mass. It is an older unit of measurement that used to be used a lot more than it is now. Have a chat with an adult about pounds, maybe an older family member like a grandparent.

Everyone should watch all the video as usual and  then choose whether to do the activity (SPICY/HOT) or selcet the Mild activity.



Activity from the video



Ask a grown-up to help you with this activity.

Find some food packages and tins with different masses measured in grams such as cereal, biscuits, tins.

Make some additions,

200g + 500g = 700g

Write them in your book.


Now make some subtractions e.g.

500g -400g =100g


Next challenge:

Can you find some that would add up to make 1 kilogram?

For example:

200g + 400g +400g = 1 kilogram

See how many different ways you can make additions to make 1 kilogram (1,000 grams).

For example:

1,200g – 200g =1,ooog = 1kg

Check Mathletics to see if you have an activity to do.




Check Spelling Shed for your new spellings.

We are currently in 3nd place behind Holly Class – let’s try to get the top spot next week!


Today’s lesson looks at writing using formal and informal language.

We have touched on this before in class.

So how you greet, for example, a teacher might be

“Morning,” which is more formal, whereas you might greet your friends with,

“Hiya,” which is more informal.

Watch all the video and then complete either Spicy / Hot or Mild.


Spicy/ Hot

L.I. – To identify formal and informal language.

Complete the activities on the video and the activity sheet.

You may see a simple activity on Purple Mash as well when you login.


L.I. – To use an apostrophe for contractions.

This is about contractions. A contraction is when two words have been put together and shortened or contracted  such as:

do not – don’t

An apostrophe shows where letters have been taken away to make the shortened word.
