Have a go at my 'lemon curd' number bond sheet. 

The challenge is to complete it in 3 minutes! (It's tricky!)


I've included a 3 minute timer who want a challenge (YouTube


Today we will be looking at subtracting fractions, this can be one or two fractions! 

e.g. 1 whole (or 8/8) - 3/8 = 5/8 

1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8 1/8

The shaded areas show how many eights there are altogether.


Please go through the powerpoint presentation and choose the option sheet you would like to complete, you do not need to print the sheet out (the answer page will be at the end of the pdf). 


I have also included an extension task for you (please remember that you do not HAVE to complete the extension). 


Today we will be looking at using inverted commas/speech marks! 


"Miss Kaur will be ringing or emailing us this week to check how much work your doing", said Mum. 


To get you started I want you to watch the BBC bitesize video about how to punctuate sentences.

Have a go at the quiz at the bottom of the page. 


Afterwards, there is a sheet in your pace to have a go at punctuating the sentences after reading the text (it will help the task make sense!) 


Main task and text to read


Use the link below to have a go at the BBC Anglo-Saxon music lesson, today is all about understanding bars when counting the beat of a tune and singing along to a song about Alfred the Great, an Anglo-Saxon King we will learn more about on Thursday! 


Another Mr Clarke PE lesson! Today we have a challenge for you... You will need some grown up help with this, so please ask before you get started. 


We want you to create an obstacle course for a relay! 

This can be indoors or outdoors, think of what you have that can help you do this... 

(I've thought of cushions to move between, coffee table to crawl under and blanket to leap over/ washing line to limbo, football to dribble, ball and racket to bounce a ball and even a trampoline to do a move on) 


Mr Clarke and I would love to see what you have come up with and hope you have some fun with this challenge!
