Week 8 - 1.6.20

Friday 5th June



It is that time in the week again - The White Rose weekly challenge!


Remember, we are looking for people to respond with as many correct answers as possible. You must have attempted the first 6, however, you should try and answer as many as possible. You will need to use a range of skills to reach the answer and it is always great to see your working out - jottings, drawings, bar models etc. 

English (with a twist)

Keeping our theme of ‘rubbish’ and ‘recycling’, you have so far researched information about landfill, and then produced a non-chronological report about it. Well done!

Today, we would like you to get creative!

Using rubbish in and around your home, we would like you to create a piece of artwork, a toy, a game, a statue. Anything you can think of made completely out of recycled materials!

For example; -

A milk bottle

An egg carton

A cereal box

An empty can, or a bottle lids!

(Please do not use anything that is not about to be thrown away).

You will need to remember how you made your project, as you will need to use this information in your writing next week! Perhaps you could take some photographs of each step to help you remember.

Attached are some photographs of different examples to help you get creative!

Please send us what you have produced @kensingprimary or e-mail


When you have finished, please complete the following today;-

   1. Complete our 'Word of the Day' mini challenge.

  1. 30 minutes of independent / shared reading with a sibling, guardian or parent.
  2. 30 minutes of Spelling Shed activities. 

Write 5 different sentences using our 'Word of the Day'

Thursday 4th June


Maths - Fractions as operators.

This week you have had to multiply fractions by integers and find fractions of amounts. This is actually the same skill done using 2 different methods.

E.g. 2/5 of 10 is done by 10 divided 5 = 2 x 2 = 4
2/5 x 10 is done by multiplying the numerator by the integer (2x 10 = 20) and putting it above the denominator, which is 20/4. We change this into a mixed fraction and the answer is also 4. 


Today, you are expected to choose which method will help you most to solve the problem. Take a look at the input and then attempt the tasks. 


You must complete 2 fluency questions, 2 reasoning questions and 1 problem solving question. 


LI: to write a non-chronological report

LI: to understand and apply parenthesis for effect


Before you continue writing your non-chronological report, complete the two short tests on dashes and brackets. This will help to remind you of how parenthesis is used correctly. Remember, we are looking for examples of this in your report and examples of cohesion. Cohesion is when you link your paragraphs together e.g. 'As previously mentioned' or 'Furthermore' or 'Following on..' (Just think of fronted adverbs/adverbial phrases!)

Finished? Read through your non-chronological report carefully. It is better if you read it out loud. Check for spelling, capital letters and that your writing makes sense!


For any time that you have available, enjoy some time reading your favourite book, short story or comic.

Wednesday 3rd June



Today we are going to continue with our fraction knowledge by finding the fraction of an amount. Bar models are perfect for this. The denominator tells us how many parts to break our bar up into and the numerator tells us how many of those parts we get. Use the input below to help you before trying the task.


Today you must complete at least 3 of the fluency tasks, 2 of the reasoning tasks and the problem solving task at the end. 


LI: to write a non-chronological report


Today you are going to begin writing your report about landfill. You did some research on Monday, however you may want to spend some more time today collecting any additional information. You will be given time tomorrow to write your report too.

The subheadings to cover ; -

*An introduction (what will your report be out). Consider using rhetorical questions here.

*What landfill is?

*Where is it stored/put?

*How much landfill there is.

*What does landfill do to our environment?

*What can we do with our rubbish rather than putting it into the bin?

*Any other information you wish to include*


*We want to see examples of parenthesis. Use brackets, dashes and commas where appropriate*


Remember, every effective non-chronological report has images too. Think about your presentation. Like our earthquakes report we did together in school, consider where you will put your title. You may wish to use an 'artistic' font e.g. bubble writing.

Tuesday 2nd June



Yesterday, you were working with improper fractions, today you are going to be multiplying mixed numbers by integers. Watch the video below to help you before attempting the codebreaking challenge. Use your answers to work out the secret message.

LI: to identify the features of a non-chronological report

I hope you enjoyed researching information about landfill sites, and then using brackets and dashes to record your information. You will be using this later in the week to produce a non-chronological report. We learnt about non-chronological reports back in January (a while a go!), so we are going to remind ourselves of the key features today.


Task 1 - open the PowerPoint and read the information about the key features

Task 2 - open the word document and read the non-chronological report, underlining in the key features in different colours. You will find the features to look for on the LAST page of the Powerpoint.

Remember, the more chillies there are, the greater the challenge. You may wish to do 1 chilli first and then do a harder one after it.


LI: to retrieve and record information

Then, read through a different example of a non-chronological report. The one below is about 'climate, climate zones and weather'. Read the information carefully and answer the comprehension questions. This will help you gain an even better understanding of what a non-chronological report is, and how they are written.


Remember, the more chillies, the harder the challenge. Come back tomorrow for the answers!

Monday 1st June

Welcome back everyone, hope you have enjoyed your half term and feel refreshed and ready to go. 


This week, we are going to pick up from where we left off...fractions! Today though, we are going to be multiplying fractions by an integer. Who can remember what an integer is? It is a whole number, with no decimals. 


Take a look at the input below.

Now attempt the first task. There are 8 fluency questions. Have a go until you feel confident. You may only need to do 4 of the questions before moving onto your second task.
Second task - reasoning. You should now be able to use your subject knowledge from the fluency section to have a go at these reasoning questions. I would like you to complete 2 of these questions at least. Remember, your maths lesson should be about an hour so if you have time to do more, then have a go. 



Click on the 'Monday Task' below. Read the information carefully and complete the tasks.
