Welcome back Kangaroos!

I hope you’ve all had a fantastic Easter!

Joke of the day: Why did the banana go to the doctor? Because it was not peeling well!

Spellings: This week your spellings are words that have silent letters.

The spelling rule: Some words have silent letters. The letters k, g and w are always silent when written at the start of a word before a consonant.



gnaw (to bite or nibble something)

gnat (a small fly)



Writing: Write each of them in a sentence in your home learning book.

Example: knight

The brave knight rode his horse through the dense forest.

Challenge: Can you write a story using all of the spellings above?


Can you use the symbols <, > or = between the numbers to compare the numbers?

Remember: < means less than (it looks like a wonky L), > means greater than and = means equal to.

Example: 5 < 7

22             14

35             46

4                8

26             26

47             17

58             99

Can you write the family of four for the calculations below?

Example:  3 x 10= 30

10 x 3 = 30

30   = 3

30  3 = 10

Remember: When you multiply it will always equal the biggest number and when you divide it will always start with the biggest number.

12 x 5=

2 x 7 =

10 x 6 =

3 x 5 =

10 x 2 =

2 x 6 =

I have also set a times table game on EdShed for you to complete.

Try your best!
