Kestrel Class Thurs 23rd April

For English, continue to follow the Hamilton lessons if you wish. There’s a range of activities, but feel free to dip in and out of the Hamilton activities and those that I post below.

English –

Using the character you created on Tuesday, write a diary entry as them, describing a typical day in their life. Use the following features:

  1. Write in first person.
  2. Include time connectives (first, then, after that, in the morning).
  3. Write in paragraphs, using a new paragraph each time you write about a new time.
  4. Proof read your work when you are finished and check your spelling, looking up 3 words that you aren’t sure of or check your use of capital letters and full stops or check for your use of conjunctions and if you haven’t used at least 3 to extend your writing, add more.

Maths –

Use the link below to continue to follow the White Rose Maths coverage, if you do not have access to a printer to print the worksheets (or perhaps if you are wanting to be considerate of the environment) you may wish to pick 3 exercises and copy them into your home learning book. Please continue to work through these activities.

If you are unable to access this, try completing the following using number sequences:

  1. Create number lines to demonstrate counting in decimals such as in intervals of 0.1 or 0.2

Your numberline might look like this:

0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 …

0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8…

  1. Challenge yourself to count beyond 1 whole and try starting at different numbers.
  2. Use 2 digit decimals to make your number lines more challenging such as:

0.15, 0.30, 0.45, 0.60 …

  1. Try counting backwards instead of forwards like so:

6.3, 6.0, 5.7, 5.4, 5.1, 4.8 …

Try to create 10 number lines in total, making each one more challenging than the last. Then see if you can challenge your family to work out what intervals your number line counts in and see if they can correctly say what the next number would be.

Greater Depth: Can you make a number sequence with a pattern that relies on multiplication. For example, the pattern might be that each time you multiply the number by 3:

1, 3, 9, 27 …

See if you can include the first 5 numbers in the sequence.


If you complete the challenge, have a go at writing a similar one of your own.
