Home Learning Spring 2 Week 1


This week we have been adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions.

Practise these skills with the activities below. Remember when adding, the denominators need to be the same. Practise writing equivalent fractions with the first activity.

Try to make 4 different equivalent fractions for the following:

Add the fractions.

Add 3 fractions. Write the answers as mixed numbers if you need to.

Find the missing numbers in the following calculations.


This week we have used the skills we have learned over the year to write independently, and focused on our understanding of what we have read.

What skills did you use in your independent piece? Write a list in the comments.

Relative Clauses

One of the skills, we have learned is relative clauses. A relative clause can be used to give additional information about a noun. A relative clause is a specific type of subordinate clause that adapts, describes, or modifies a noun. They’re introduced by a relative pronoun, such as ‘that’, ‘which’, ‘who’, ‘whose’, ‘where’, and ‘when’. For instance: She lives in York, which is a cathedral city.

For each question, read the pair of sentences carefully. Identify the first word in the second sentence. Then, replace it with a relative pronoun to make the sentence into a relative clause. Finally, you can add this relative clause to the first sentence.

E.g My family is unusual. It is very large. My family, which is very large, is unusual.

a) Our planet is far away. There, many families look like us.

b) Earth is our home now. Here, people think we are odd.

c) My wings are very large. They are orange.

d) My aunt lives in the attic. She is covered in blue and green hair.

e) My cousins each have five tentacles. They are twins.


This week we focused on ascenders and focused on the following words:










Write each word, thinking about our handwriting focus. Can you use each word in a sentence?

Home Learning Week 6

We will be reviewing and developing our fractions learning, when we return to school after half term.

Use this week to recap what you already know, about Fractions and Decimals.

We will be learning about homophones. Homophones, are words that sound or are spelled the same but have a different meaning.

In Science, we will be learning about Forces, our first lesson is all about Issac Newton’s ‘discovery’ gravity.

Spend some time on TTRS! What is your Rock Status! What is your fastest time. We will be checking when we return to school. WHO IS A ROCK STAR?

Home Learning: Week 5!

This week for home learning, we will continue to recap our understanding of angles.

Marcus has been away for the whole time his class has been learning about angles. Can you check his work and write the correct answers if needed?

Use a protractor if you have one, or ask your teacher for one and draw these angles.


These sentences have lots of tricky spellings and homophones in them. Rewrite them, using the correct spelling.
