Learning Tasks Week beginning 20th July 2020 

Monday 20th July 2020  


Reading: 20-30 minutes to yourself.


Literacy: This week we would like you to plan and write a letter to your future self! We would like you to write about the past few months- what happened, why schools had to close, why we went into lockdown and what this meant, how you felt, what you did at home and how things are gradually getting back to normal now.


Begin by spending some time planning what you would like to include in your letter and how you will organise it. When it comes to writing your letter, you should hand write (in your neatest, joined writing) or type it. Check it and edit it very carefully. When your letter is finished, carefully put it in an envelope, seal it and put it somewhere VERY safe. Remember where you put it so that whenever you decide you want to read it (next year, at the end of primary school, in ten years time…) you can find it!


Maths:  Maths booklet – Multiplication and Division

Please finish your booklet this week and mark your answers. 


Topic: Geography

Your notes about the Caribbean should now be ready for presenting! Think about your Canada and USA work and try to present your Caribbean notes in a way which links them all together.


  • your facts should be beautifully presented in joined writing and any colouring should be neat - just like you would do if you were in school!
  • this is the last part of your North America project – have a think about how the other two parts can link up with what you do this week so that you have a complete project on North America rather than three separate ones.
  • make sure that you include lots of the facts that you have researched.
  • we would like you to use your imagination! You can make models, paint, colour, collage, attach pop-ups, attach flaps etc.
  • please do not do a PowerPoint presentation.
  • here are some ideas of ways in which you could present your work (you may well have a better, more creative one and, if so, please use your idea!):
  • a booklet with pop ups
  • a map with facts attached (pop ups, flaps with facts on etc)
  • a model of a landmark with facts attached
  • a large flag with facts attached.

We know that you already have lots of fantastic ideas and are looking forward to seeing your finished work! Again, please take a photo and hand your work in, via Google Classroom, for us to see.
