Here is the timetable for today. See below for the tutorials too. 




Exercise-Please do the live online Joe Wicks workout (on you-tube) or an exercise of your choice.



L.O: I can use my knowledge of algebra to generate expressions (know: understanding)

Success criteria:

  1. I understand what an expression is
  2. I can understand how to write algebraic expressions
  3. I can explain to others how to write algebraic expressions


Please watch the tutorial on how to generate expressions


  1. Complete the sheet on generating expressions.

The answers are included so you can self-mark. Let me know how you did. Please write an evaluative comment linked to the success criteria-like you do in class.


  1. If you have time please do TT Rock stars afterwards


Break time/snack time


L.O: I can show detailed description

Success criteria: (show: applying)

  1. I can show the character’s thoughts and feelings towards the events

Read the text Jack and the Beanstalk pages 4-6 (on the webpage) or listen to the same part of the story read by Miss Stuart.


  1. What is meant by the line “If it is breakfast you're wanting, it's breakfast you'll likely be.”
  2. Why does the ‘thump, THUMP, THUMP’ get louder? What affect does this have on the reader?

Please look at the detailed checklist on the webpage to help you with this task.

Challenge 6- How does your garden grow?

Task: Today, if you haven’t already, you are going to decide which vegetable to grow. It will take more than this week to grow, don’t worry about how long it will take.

  1. Read through ‘Grow your own vegetables’ on the website to give you some ideas
  2. Then please create your next mind map including these sections:
  • How many ideas can I think of?
  • Which ideas do I like best? Why?
  • Things to consider


For more guidance please look at my example on our webpage called ‘Reflective journal example challenge 6 Wednesday 13th May 2020’


Remember to consider your layout and presentation-aim high like you do in your learning journals at school.  I will also be doing this challenge too and keep you posted with photographs etc, don’t forget to send me your photographs of you learning your new skills as well as your journal work.  




Well-being-choose an activity of your choice, for example: reading, drawing, taking a walk, play a game, listen to music
