Today, we are going to start looking at algebra. Don’t panic! It’s not as hard as it sounds. In fact, we have already learnt how to do most of these things. We are just adding some letters!

First, we are going to look at sequences. We can make a sequence of numbers from a starting number and a rule.


If we start with 9, and the rule is +5

We have to add 5 to each number to make a sequence:

9 , 14, 19, 24, 29 etc.


This rule can be anything though!


We can also find the rule or missing numbers from the sequence e.g. if you are given a sequence: 39,28,17,6 we would see the rule being  -11.


Have a look at this lesson:


Please then complete the homework on MyMaths! Remember to check out so I can see how well you have done!


Please also have a go on TT rockstars!  Keep going on that battle! The girls are winning!  




Today, we are going to look at compound adjectives. This an adjective composed of two or more separate words. These words are typically separated by a hyphen, which can help avoid confusion. E.g. Jim’s record-breaking cheeses won him six awards at the Little Billington Cheese Fair.


Have a look at the Powerpoint about these When you have done this, please then have a go at the worksheet where you need to add in the hyphen in the correct place to make compound adjectives. I would then like you to write some sentences including compound adjectives used correctly. Be creative!


I have also attached your spelling test for this week to complete on Friday! 



Please watch the word of the week video: Bible.


Please have a go at the reflection for this. You just need to read a Bible story. This can be your favourite or a new piece of scripture. If you have a bible at home, you can read it from this or if not, you can just google or use Bible gateway to find a story. Share this with your family!


When you have done this, please try to retell the scripture or story you have just read! You can do this in any way. You can write it down, or do a storyboard, do a video or a powerpoint. Be creative and do what you would enjoy! Try to link your story to any other scripture you can e.g you might link it because they’re both about Jesus performing miracles etc.


Remember I love seeing your work and the fun things you are doing! Keep sending them to
