Additional Tasks

This week it's...HISTORY!

Earlier in the year we learnt about the Spanish Armada – a fleet of ships that aimed to invade England in 1588. Your task is to design and name your own battle ship from either the Spanish Armada or their rival the English Navy. Some examples of battle ship names from both fleets include The Victory, The Angel, The Venture and The Princess.

Please check the weekly timetable for which spelling activities we would like the children to complete this week. Spend ten minutes each day practising the given spelling pattern - there are two a week, so you can look at the same one for more than one day.


To access the activities you go to and at the top right hand side you should see 'My Class Login.' Enter your year group login and password here (see below for details - as already emailed out by Miss Chambers) and refer to the weekly timetable for which sections to focus on.

We will revisit these sections more than once over the next few weeks, so do not worry if you do not complete it this week.  

You can also have a go at these tasks...


Make your own ‘lava lamp’ using just a plastic bottle, water, baking soda, vegetable oil, vinegar and food colouring! 




Write a rap, song or poem about either life now in 2020 or what you think life could be like 100 years in the future in 2120! 






Make a musical instrument – this could be out of cardboard, paper, metal, rubber bands… anything! 





Don't forget, we would love to see any work you complete. If you would like to, you can take a photo or video (or attach it if you completed it on a computer) and email it to
