There is a video explaining the task and learning. For each lesson, there are a set of questions and answers. See the pdf documents below You can write the answers down, or tell the answer to a grown up or sibling. When you have completed all of the questions, check the answers to see if you were correct.

We have also set you some maths challenges to complete on Purple Mash, which can be accessed here:



Remember: Save your work once you have finished so your teacher can see it! To do this correctly, click on the exit and save button – you may need to save it to your file in the class folder.


Time for the next exciting instalment of our current book, ‘The Lost Myth of Mathos’. Will Mathos and Pegasus escape the clutches of the angry giant who has captured them?


Task 1: Read Chapter 3 and complete the multiple choice questions. These have been set as ‘to do’ tasks on Purple Mash.


Task 2: Complete the Lost Myth of Mathos activities on the school website. Mathos – Chapter 3 - Sequencing and Mathos SPAG.

Task 4: In Chapter 3, we have been introduced to the kraken, a colossal sea creature who is also looking for Perseus. Imagine that you have just had a sighting of an unusual looking mythical creature for the very first time. Can you write a detailed description of everything you saw and heard?



The EFLTrust are promoting a festival for KS2 children across the country. The Joy of Movement Festival is to be participated in on w/c 18th May 2020.

We cannot wait to see you getting involved and keeping active!

Here's a cool experiment and activity to get you thinking about how we see colours. Maybe you are lucky enough to have a prism at home to help with this.  If not, don't worry - a water spray will do. Your challenge is to make a colour spinner to help explain how we see colours.



Choose one of the Anglo Saxon artefacts below and sketch it. Think about the size (perspective), the shapes and angles. Can you add tone and texture to your sketch? Think about the different drawing techniques you have learnt this year.  Look at the drawing and shading techniques pdf to help you.
