Monday 4th May

Monday 4th May 2020



Why not start your day by joining Joe Wicks’ daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here:  

This week the sessions will be led by his wife, Rosie, as he recovers from the operation he had on his wrist at the weekend.


Alternatively, ask someone to set you a physical challenge either indoors or outdoors.  You will find some ideas on our school Twitter page @SchoolScotby



Today should have been the early May bank holiday.  Traditionally, bank holiday days always fall on a Monday, however this year the first bank holiday in May was moved to Friday 8th May instead.  Do you know why?


It has changed this year because it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day.  It is only the second time the early May bank holiday has been moved in history.  The first time the date was changed was in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of VE Day.


I would like you to read the information about VE Day and discuss the following questions with someone at home:

  • What is remembered on VE Day?
  • Why do you think it is important to celebrate and recognise VE Day?
  • How was VE Day celebrated in 1945?

If you would like to record your thoughts, you can do so on the discussion sheet provided.


We will begin again by using the slideshow from the Spelling Shed website to introduce the spelling rules.  Hopefully an adult can work through the slideshow with you and direct you with the tasks, using the lesson plan as a guide.  Feel free to adapt the tasks as you wish.


If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage.  Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).


Quick Maths

I thought I would give you a break from TT Rockstars last week after your epic battle with the Year 3 class, though many of you couldn’t resist going on anyway!  This week I would like you to test your speed of recall by logging on to the site for 5 or 10 minutes.  How would you feel about a battle against the Year 4 class next week?  Let me know and I can arrange that with Mrs Mumberson! 



Have a go at one of these Maths lessons on the BBC Bitesize website using the links below: 


Y3 = Converting pounds and pence  


Y4 = Multiply a 2-digit number by a 1-digit number  


Topic - Geography

I would like you to revise compass points using the PowerPoint provided and then have a go at the compass points 2Do on Purple Mash.


You could then practise following directions and writing some of your own using the activity sheets provided.  There are 3 slightly different sheets starting with the easiest and then increasing in difficulty slightly.  Choose one or try them all!
