LO: TBAT measure and calculate the perimeter.


Today, as you have been used to doing, you will first need to visit the White Rose website for the video slides, and worksheets. (I’ve also put the question sheet and answer sheet below.)


You can also visit the BBC Bitesize website for an extra video on today’s maths lesson Thursday 7th  May).


The links are below:

Just a reminder – the idea is that the BBC provides further support to help you learn, you will still need to complete the White Rose question sheet, and as always, you can check your answers.

LO: TBAT use brackets for parenthesis.




Watch the video to remind you about brackets, dashes and commas. Then, learn why brackets are used and how to use them by watching the next video. It’s important to read the information given on the page, too.


Practise using brackets in Activity 1, then watch the video of Michael Rosen reading his poem ‘Chocolate Cake’ (This is my favourite poem!)


Go to your Purple Mash 2Do’s, can you write at least five sentences or a short story to describe Michael’s (or your own) chocolate cake adventure that use brackets to add extra information or afterthoughts?


Example: Michael (who was an inquisitive ten-year-old boy) LOVED chocolate cake. Interestingly, his favourite type of chocolate cake was chocolate fudge cake (with white chocolate drops on top too).


Top tips!

  •          To check you have put your brackets in the correct place, your sentence should still make sense even when you take the words that are in the brackets out of the sentence!
  •          Remember, brackets show parentheses. We can also use dashes (- -) or commas (, ,) to add parenthesis instead of brackets.

LO: TBAT use my voice as an instrument.




Watch a video to help you learn all about melody and pitch.


Then, play an interactive game to learn about the difference between low and high pitch.

Consider how songs and singing can make you feel.


Activity 1

What is your favourite song at the moment? Find that song and listen to it.

Can you write down or describe how it is making you feel?

Can you spot what is causing that feeling? Is it the words?

How does the singer perform?


Write down three things about the music that you think are creating that feeling.


There is a new blog on Purple Mash – Music. I’d like you to add to the blog, thinking about these questions. I wonder if you all have the same taste in music?


Activity 2

Sing along to Somewhere Only We Know

Watch and singalong with this choir singing Somewhere Only We Know by Keane.


I’m looking forward to reading about your musical tastes on our class blog!
