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.

Lesson 3 – Grammar Hammer


Look at the way the WAGOLL is written.    It includes:

a title to show us what the text is about;

an opening paragraph to explain the subject – in this case Egypt;

rhetorical questions which are questions someone asks without expecting an answer. Sometimes these questions are asked to punch up a point or to persuade someone as they are here.

lots of details – powerful adjectives;

Present tense verbs;

Lots of ambiguous phrases (eg probably, almost certainly);

Opinions presented as facts (eg You will love this!  It is the best place to visit!)

These two panels will remain the same in your leaflet.



In a similar style, you will write a further 4 panels to replace Giza, Sharm-el-Sheikh, The Temple of Horus and The Nile

Research Luxor Temple and why it would be a great place to visit.

Include some rhetorical questions (Ever wondered …?) and some emotive language (You must …) to encourage your readers to visit.

Where is it?  Who lived there?  How/why was it built? What is special about it?

Now write a persuasive paragraph.


Enjoy your Summer Holiday! We look forward to welcoming you all back on the 1st September 2022!
