Hello everyone! I hope you had a good start to the week yesterday and that you are all ok.


Your tasks for today are as follows…


Maths: represent and calculate ratio

Continue to spend about 10 minutes working on your times tables on TTRS or hit the button in order to keep them fluent and up to the speeds and accuracy we have worked so hard to achieve.


After that, use the link below to find today’s lesson on ratio which continues from yesterday’s lesson. Read through the information on the webpage and watch the videos to make sure you fully understand before you begin the activities. Answers are provided at the end for you to self-mark.

English: giving a presentation

Follow the link below for today’s English lesson on giving a presentation. Work through the information and different activities to improve your skills on this.

Well-being: boredom busters

To keep your minds healthy and positive, remember to complete your daily well-being activity where possible. For today’s well-being activity, have a look at the boredom buster activity ideas I have linked below. If you are feeling bored, try to complete as many as possible.

Science: egg box catapult

Your additional lesson today is science. For this lesson, you will need an empty egg box, 2 elastic bands, a plastic spoon and some items to fling (e.g. pompoms or cotton wool balls).  

First, use your egg box to make the base of a catapult by securing a plastic spoon to it using two elastic bands. Items to fling can then be placed in the bowl of the spoon and pulled back. When the spoon is released, the item will be flung forwards. If your egg box is not stable enough for this, you could weigh it down with stones or something inside.


  1. How could you get your item to be thrown further?
  2. Can you get your item to land on a target?
  3. What happens if you change the size or material of the spoon? Why do you think this is?
  4. What happens when you change how much you pull back on the spoon?
  5. Can you fling items of different sizes or materials?



Enjoy your last day of June…I can’t believe it is July tomorrow!

See you at school tomorrow if you are in.
