Tuesday 23rd June


Subtracting decimals with a different number of places

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.

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.

Non Chronological Report Writing


Today we’re going to continue to look at non-chronological reports. 


Our first task is to watch the powerpoint below. It will talk you through and help to explain the features of a non-chronological report.

Once you have watched the powerpoint on the features, I would like you to open the activity sheet – annotating features (below).

There are 3 levels of challenge. Your task is to choose your challenge and use what you have learned in the powerpoint to annotate the non-chronological report features. You could print the sheet or simply make notes in your exercise book. You might choose to use different colours to make it clear. This is an activity which we have done many times in school, so you’ll be familiar with it.


I’d like to see how you’ve got on, so could you please send a photo to:


Tuesday 23rd June and Wednesday 24th June

This activity will continue for two days.


The Ancient Kingdom of Benin

What was the ancient Kingdom of Benin?

Where was it in the world?

How did it come to thrive?

What did the people there believe in?

How did they show this in their artwork?

We are going to explore the Ancient Kingdom of Benin and hopefully, we’ll be able to answer all of these questions  - and more – by the end of this topic.

I’m certainly going to learn a lot!


  • I can find out about the geography of Africa.
  • I can begin to discuss the Benin Kingdom.

Let’s begin this new topic by familiarising ourselves with the continent of Africa.

Work your way through the powerpoint.

What does Africa mean to you?

What words come into your head when you think of Africa?

Write these words down in your exercise book.

What images spring to mind when you think about Africa?

Look at the images on the powerpoint. What questions do you have about them? Do any of them surprise you?

Write the questions and any comments in your exercise book.

You will need to find a map of Africa. You could use Google Maps or an atlas. Then, using the map I’ve attached below, you need to answer some questions:

  1. What does the terrain of Nigeria look like?
  2. Locate Nigeria on your map of Africa.
  3. Can you mark Benin City on your map?
  4. Where is the town of Ife?
  5. The city of Lagos?
  6. Can you draw where the River Niger is?
  7. Can you name any other countries in Africa?


Now, over the rest of today and tomorrow, I’d like you to do some research about Nigeria or the continent of Africa.

You could think about the terrain (how flat or hilly the land is, whether it’s covered in desert or forests etc), the rivers, the climate (weather), the cities and town, it’s industries or crops etc.

You can show your research any way you choose – powerpoint, poster, written report – I don’t mind.


I wonder what you will learn?
