Activity 3 - WALT identify multiples of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10

A multiplication challenge has been set for you on Seesaw. Please logon to complete this challenge. Remember to select ‘maths’ at the first page. If you need any help, please contact Mrs Castle.




TASK 1: This week we are learning to: identify verbs, adjectives and adverbs.

Scroll down to 'Resources' -> 'Literacy' and watch Miss Sanderson's 5 minute teaching video to help you with this task. The resource you need is also in this folder. You can complete this task straight onto Seesaw or write the sentences out to practise your handwriting.


TASK 2: We are learning to: stretch a sentence to add interest for the reader.

This week we are going to learn how to ‘stretch’ a sentence to make it more interesting for the reader. This means we add in a little bit extra at each stage to tell the reader more. So let’s start….

WHO? The cheeky hedgehog.

DID WHAT? The cheeky hedgehog shuffled.

WHERE? The cheeky hedgehog shuffled across the garden.

WHY? The cheeky hedgehog shuffled across the garden because he needed to get home.

HOW? The cheeky hedgehog quickly shuffled across the garden because he needed to get home.

WHEN? Every morning, the cheeky hedgehog quickly shuffled across the garden because he needed to get home.


Are you pleased with your final sentence? Or could you add in any more detail? Perhaps you could add in a few more adjectives for description, e.g. the overgrown garden.


Have a go at doing this yourself and share your sentences with us on SeeSaw. I would love to see you building up your sentences so present them in the same way I have above here.

Please do this for at least three different sentences.


**TASK 3: We are learning to: use features of poetry writing.**

Have you heard of an acrostic poem? Type it into Google and see what you get! The letters along the side spell out a word and are used as the first letter of each line of the poem.


This week we are going to write acrostic poems about The Olympics.

Here is an example:

In your poem try to make your reader feel like they are at the Olympics! You can do this by:

• Referring to the 5 senses: see, hear, smell, taste, touch,

• Using some longer lines and some very short ones to create excitement

• Use some adventurous adjectives ( will help you!)


You can hand write or type your poem but remember to present it neatly and beautifully!


TASK 1: This week we are learning to: develop and communicate our design ideas.

This week we would like you to get crafty and draw/make:

1) Olympic medal

2) Olympic kit

3) Olympic torch

You can choose one or all three! Think about how you can use materials from around the house (with parent/carer permission).

You can use the design sheets found in the Resources section or take a photo of what you have created. We would love to see any videos of you explaining your creations!


**TASK 2: We are learning to develop and communicate our design ideas.**

Do you know what a mascot is? A mascot is a character that brings good luck to something like an event!

At TRP, our Rights Respecting mascot is Riley! Cyril the Swan is the mascot for the football team Swansea City!


At every Olympics there is a mascot that brings luck to the event and symbolises the hosting country in some way. Look through the past Olympic mascots on this website and learn all about them -


If the Olympics was hosted in Wales, what would the mascot look like? Your task is to design an Olympics mascot including a name, labelled picture and description.

Think about how different parts of your mascot could symbolise different things, e.g.

• Olympics colours, the 5 rings or a sports outfit could symbolise the sporting event;

• A daffodil, dragon or leek could symbolise Wales;

• Holding hands, rainbow colours or links could symbolise friendship between countries.


Draw your mascot straight onto Seesaw, draw on paper and take a picture, or even create a 3D model of your mascot using things you can find around the house. Let your creativity shine!



This week we are learning to: focus on our surroundings to keep our mind grounded.


Our theme for well-being this week is ‘take notice’. Paying more attention to your surroundings can help keep your mind grounded and stop it getting carried off by spiraling uncontrolled thoughts and worries. Focus on the here and the now and can be a powerful way to help to deal with anxiety. 


***TASK 1


Make or draw a gratitude tree and write all of the things that you are grateful for on the leaves. This might include people in your life, things that you have, where you live, music, sleep, baths, going on adventures etc. Or anything that you are grateful for. We can't wait to read your ideas!





Take note of one thing that makes you feel excited and one thing that makes you feel calm.





Listen to the mindfulness story in 'Resources' - 'Well-being'. When it is finished, write down how it made you feel.
