Lapwing Class Tue 21st April

Happy Tuesday! This week I have used Hamilton Trust to set a maths and English each day, they have guidance slides and differentiated resources to help you understand the learning.


  • Reading – you need to re-read the text from yesterday. Can you spot the dialogue? We looked at direct speech recently – can you remember how to punctuate it? Look at the examples from the text.
  • You also have the second of 5 English lessons for this week (this should take you about an hour). You need to create dialogue for the characters in the picture – what could they be saying to each other based on the plot of the story?
  • Spellings- I have given you different words with double consonants. Can you write a definition for each of these words in your best handwriting?

List A –

  • Grammar

List B –

  • Across
  • Better
  • Book
  • Stopped
  • Floppy
  • Narrator
  • Opposite
  • Possess/ion
  • Possible
  • Pressure
  • Suppose


  • Times tables – keep going with rockstars! Remember you are aiming for A MINIMUM 10 minutes a day. There is an idea of a ‘Connect 5’ times tables game for you to have a go at. You do not need to have a printer – you could draw this out in your maths book and cross off any you get correct (each player should use a different colour pen/pencil) to make it clear who has that space.
  • Please follow Hamilton Trust’s lesson which I have attached.
  • I have also attached another quick, mental maths sheet to keep these ticking over (we’re on number 8).


  • Could you become a fitness instructor by planning and leading a workout for your family (using the cards I have attached) and get everybody moving? Remember to be safe!


  • We had just started our printing topic at school and had learnt about relief printing (cut out bits not shown, bits that are left are shown when printed). I have found a very simple idea using leaves and marker pens that would be really nice for you to have a go at. Here are the instructions and what you need:


    • Paper – scraps and sheets to print onto.
    • Marker pens.
    • A rolling pin.
    • Leaves.
    • A damp cloth or wet wipe for fingers.
  • Go on a leaf hunt and collect a selection of different leaves (choose fresh leaves that are soft and supple with a strong veined texture on their underside that are fairly strong and can withstand a bit of handling).
  • Choose a leaf and place it face down on a scrap of paper. Make sure the underside of the leaf is facing up, with all the veins and texture showing. Colour the leaf in (whole leaf, right to the edges and along all the veins and the centre).
  • Big pens are easier and gentler on the leaves. The thinner markers are good for adding details or bursts of extra colour.

  • Once your entire leaf is coloured, give your pen covered fingers a quick wipe, then carefully lay the leaf, coloured side down onto a clean sheet of paper. Try not to move the leaf around once it’s on the paper, then carefully use the rolling pin, pressing down quite hard, and roll over the leaf just once.

Stay healthy and take care. Miss Marriott.
