Yesterday, we looked at nets. Remember a net of a 3d shape is what it would look like if it was opened out. You need to imagine what they would look like if it was folded back up to the 3d shape. Remind yourself by using this website if you are not sure:


When you have done this, have a go at the match up sheet below. You need to match up the net to which shape it will create. You can print this off and match them up or just write it into your homework book.


When you have done this, have a look at this website:


This provides you with a game where you have to figure out which nets will make cubes. Click on each one and then decide yes or no. See how quickly you can do this and whether you get it right or not! Enjoy!



Today we are going to do something fun. We are looking at a type of poems called limericks.

Have a look at this website to see what a limerick is. A limerick is 5 lined poem where the first, second and fifth lines rhyme. The 3rd and 4th lines rhyme with each other as well. They often start with ‘there once was a’ or ‘there was a’

For example:

There once was a wonderful star
Who thought she would go very far
Until she fell down
And looked like a clown
She knew she would never go far.


There was an Old Man with a beard,
Who said, "It is just as I feared! --
    Two Owls and a Hen,
    Four Larks and a Wren,
Have all built their nests in my beard.”


There was a Young Lady of Ryde,
Whose shoe-strings were seldom untied.
    She purchased some clogs,
    And some small spotted
And frequently walked about Ryde.

You can see the rhyming patterns needed for a limerick. Research some other kid limericks to see what they are like! When you are ready, try and write a few of your own limericks! Be really creative and write it about anything you want. I can’t wait to read them!




We are going to continue our work on Mexico. Today we are going to look at a festival celebrated by many Mexicans called Cinco De Mayo. This literally means May the 5th which is when it is celebrated. It celebrates the end of a war from many years ago. Read through the PowerPoint at the bottom of the page. When you have finished see if you can answer the questions given on the Cinco De Mayo document!  

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


REMEMBER if you haven’t already: Yearbook

We are really hoping to be able to get a Yearbook put together for you all to remember your time at St Joseph’s. We will try everything we can to do this! To do this, I need some information about you all to put in the Yearbook.

There is a document below to fill in but all I really need to know if what your ambition is for the future e.g. what you would like to do for a job or career when you grow up and what your favourite memory of St Mary’s is!

Please have a think about these and email this document or just the answer to these two questions to

You could drop it off at school if you live nearby and can’t email this. To do this, please just leave it in the foyer of school so there is no contact between you and the members of staff and children in school for everyone’s safety. If you can’t do this, you could ring school and tell the answers to these to a member of staff who will write these down and pass them on. Please try the other methods if possible though.
