Lesson 3 – Calculate angles on a straight line

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.


Wednesday 1st July


Let’s watch the video one more time.



Imagine you had a superpower.

  • What would that superpower be? Why?
  • What could you do with that power?


Now, imagine that you wake up one morning with a superpower.

  • What is your superpower? Reading peoples’ minds, strength, ability to fly?
  • What would you do?
  • How would your life change?


I want you to write a diary entry, imagining that you have just had your first day with your superpower.


The keys lifted, levitating above the table, then they soared through the air towards me  - I was terrified!. I could barely control my powers as two stuffed toys flew into the air in a ghost-like fashion. The police officers stood frozen in place, unable to comprehend what they were seeing.


Think about spellings, openers, punctuation and sentence types.

I’ve attached some sheets to help.


You can write in your exercise book or type it. Please send me a copy – I can’t wait to read them!

Our Local Area


I’m pretty sure that over the last few months you have been on plenty of walks!

I imagine that if you are anything like me and my family, you have been exploring your local area.  We have discovered lots of alleys, paths and even whole play areas we didn’t know were there!

Over the next few geography sessions, we’re going to be considering our local area, starting today with Overseal and some map work.

I would like you first of all to compare these two maps of Overseal. The first is from 1890, the next from 2019. How many differences do you see? What is the same?


Don’t forget to look outside the red circle, too.

Make a note of the differences and similarities in your exercise book.

This is a compass. It shows direction.  We’ve already done some compass work in school, so this shouldn’t be new learning. The points on the compass, from the top moving clockwise are:

  • North
  • North East
  • East
  • South East
  • South
  • South West
  • West
  • North West

Look at this diagram. It shows where the local villages are in relation to Overseal.

If I wanted to travel to Church Gresley from Overseal, I’d have to travel North. If I wanted to go to Blackfordby from Lullington, I’d have to travel North East.  

Use this diagram to have a go at the questions below:
