Do you enjoy delicious cake, fresh fruit or tantalising treats?
Our new topic is just up your street.
‘Can homemade food really be better than store bought food?’
Throughout the Summer term our project will be based on food, glorious food. Where it comes from, its nutritional value and looking at whether fresh ingredients make a difference to the taste. Do our senses impact on the food we eat? Hopefully you will have the opportunity to do some baking following a recipe. You will be designing your own packaging and advertising for a special treat of your creation.
Monday 8th June to Friday 12th June
Find below this week’s TTRS (Times table Rock Star) questions. They will be based on either the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 or 10 multiplication facts. Have a go and see how many you can complete in the time limit? Your aim is to score more and more each day. You will also find a Mini Maths too.
Over the next two weeks we are going to do some Maths revision using White Rose. White Rose is the scheme of learning we use in school. This week your revision is going to be based on fractions (an extra week to use cake in Maths)! Please click here to access the daily videos for summer week 7 and find the worksheets below.
This week, your writing coincides with your delicious activity from last week’s chef project. I would like you to write your very own recipe for your inventive banana based dish following these simple steps.
- Explore! A recipe is simple a set of instructions. Take a look at this model text to become familiar with the layout and features. Can you create your own success criteria based on what you find out?
- Plan it! As you are creating your banana based recipe, draft your recipe remembering to note down specific measurements.
- Have a look at the activities below which will help make you write your recipe to perfection.
- Write it! Now it is time to write your recipe.
- Once you have finished writing your recipe check it against my success criteria. Do you need to edit or redraft it to include anything you might have missed?
- Share it! Take a photo and upload it on to Twitter along with a picture of your banana creation. I can’t wait to see it!
The spelling rule this week is adding the suffix -ly on to a root word. When you add the suffix –ly on to an adjective (describes the noun), then it forms an adverb (describes the verb).
This week we are going to revise our learning on paragraphs. Take a look at these activities below. No peeping at the answers until you have finished!
Read, get silly and have fun!

If you haven’t finished designing and creating your sunglasses then please continue to do so this week.
Using what you already know about the sun and how to protect yourself, I would like you to create a persuasive poster to persuade ME buy and wear your sunglasses!
I have included some extra information about light to help you. In your poster make sure to inform me how the sun can be dangerous and how your sunglasses help to protect me. Make sure your poster is bold and bright so it catches my attention. You may like to include a picture and label how different parts helps to protect my eyes.
There is also a wonderful investigation you can do to see the effects of UV lights. All you need is a piece of black and a variety of different coloured paper or card (or just one colour).
Nutritionist: Have a look at these food items and sort the images into healthy foods and unhealthy foods. Once you have done that, have a look at the nutritional values on the packaging of your favourite foods (it is usually on the back). Are you surprised at how much fat your favourite foods contain? Click here use this interactive Eatwell Guide on the NHS to help you decide whether it is a healthy or unhealthy food item.
Chef: Using the Eatwell Guide from the NHS Website can you design a healthy eating energy bar to eat before or after a PE lesson to give you an energy boost? Think about what sorts of energy you will need and what foods you will get this energy from? Once you have designed your energy bar, it would be great if you could have a go at baking it?
Whilst the sun is shining, get yourselves out and about for a wonderful daily walk, jog or bike ride.
Monday 1st June – Friday 5th June

We are going to continue our learning about light this half term. If you haven’t completed the experiment exploring the most suitable material to use for sunglasses then please use this this week to investigate.
Once you have completed finding the most suitable material to use in a pair of sunglasses, I would like you to design your own sunglasses. On a plain piece of paper, or even a computer if you have access, can you draw your perfect pair of sunglasses?
Then, add the following information to your design:
How do they protect your eyes?
What makes them comfortable?
What makes them fashionable?
Why are they suited for boy, girls, both, adults or children?
Will they break easily? Why not?
If you have the materials, you could even have a go at making your sunglasses (SAFETY WARNING - please do not look at the sun wearing your home made sunglasses as it could damage your eyes).
