Thursday 3rd December

Good morning, Topaz Class!


It was great to see so many cracking pieces of work sent to me yesterday about Papa Panov and on the Bar Charts. It was also good to see so many of you beginning to work through the learning in the other subjects. Well done!


Today we continue with our Christmas Writing Unit in English and our Statistics learning in Maths – plus I have set some MyMaths for you! Don’t forget your Spellings and let me know how you get on in the test.


Please see, below, our learning tasks for today. For more accessible tasks for some children, try the Table 2 activities.




  • After thinking about how Papa Panov helped people, yesterday, today we are looking at one of the most famous people in history, who devoted her life to helping others – Mother Teresa.
  • I would like you to access websites that give you information about her life eg. When she lived, where she was from, what she did with her life, how she helped others, what awards she received and anything else of importance. You could try: Mother Teresa: Everything you need to know - CBBC Newsround and Kid's Biography: Mother Teresa (
  • Try finding and writing 10 key facts about her, using the above questions as guides.
  • Now I’d like you to use this information to write a short biography about her life. This could be handwritten or word processed. Write in detailed sentences with accurate punctuation (particularly upper case letters and full stops) and aim to use different sentence openers. Imagine you are going to show and talk through to somebody else about her life, who has never heard of her. Feel free to decorate/illustrate your work – and please send to me or upload to the Facebook Group!



We are continuing with our Statistics work. Please see the worksheets below. The answers are on the second pages of the documents. Almost all children should do the Easier Questions and most should attempt the Harder questions. Remember to annotate the graphs, by drawing lines across with a ruler from the points to the scale at the side, to help with solving the questions.


I have also set you some MyMaths tasks on statistics, length/perimeter that we worked on last week and some children have Times Tables tasks, too. You have today and tomorrow to complete these.


Other Activities

Wednesday to Friday

Other activities you may choose to do today, could be:

  • Art: Research the artist Pieter Bruegel. Find out a little bit about him and his most famous works and discover why people often think of his art over Christmas.
  • History: We were going to enjoy sampling typical Viking food this week, in class. Could you research what they ate and make your own dish at home – and then enjoy feasting on it?
  • PE:  Use our warm up music in Dance Propellerheads - Spybreak! - YouTube to create your own, solo Superhero routine. Remember to plan a beginning, middle and end; think of the heights of your actions; consider your travel, balances and timings – and think about freezes and slow motion sections. If you are brave, upload a video to our class Facebook group or email it to me!
  • French: Practise your greetings by using the PowerPoints below and completing the grid below – try without looking!
