Welcome to our new maths block which consolidates previous learning about addition and subtraction.


For this block, we will be using White Rose Maths Home Learning resources which uses a short video to help you through the learning activities.  Please complete the questions in your home learning book, drawing out tables and diagrams or you may choose to print the sheet and write the answers on the sheet.


Lessons can be found using this link and the drop down menu 'Summer Term Week 5 w/c 18th May'.

We are using the alternative worksheets and not completing the work on fractions.

There is a video to watch explaining the tasks together with the worksheets and answers.

Persuasive texts:  Writing a holiday brochure

We are going to write a brochure by the end of this course of lessons.  If we were to take the text and write on both sides, it would look much the same as the brochures advertising Crealy Park.  The WAGOLL (What A Good One Looks Like) shows how you will display your text at the end of the unit.
