Class 4 – Daily Activities – 14.05

Good morning. Before you check out today’s activities, here are yesterday’s answers.

If you missed a maths video/lesson or want to revisit something, here are the previous posts.


As always, you don’t have to do these activities at a set time or in a set order – that’s all up to you. Also, you don’t have to be doing work all day! Feel free to send in some pictures or videos of some of the other things you have been doing at home.

Extension – Problems of the Day





Last week, we finished the final chapters of Pax. If you’ve missed any of the chapters and want to hear them again, here’s a link to all the previous posts since Easter.

Here is the 1st part of the second chapter of The Graveyard Book. It starts just before yesterday’s ended.


Here’s some questions about what you’ve just listened to:

1.) Who is “Bod”?
2.) Why does Silas tell Bod that he can’t leave the graveyard?
3.) What was odd when Scarlett asked Bod how old he was?
4.) How old was Scarlett?
5.) How did Scarlett’s parents react when she told them about the boy in the graveyard?
6.) Where was the oldest person buried in the graveyard?




Same as last week; copy up the following in your neatest handwriting:


After congratulating Lenny and meeting the King and Queen of Frogkind, Carl quickly relayed his news about the release of the Darkness to everyone. The four of them quickly came up with some initial plans. King Erik and Queen Eve would first unite as many of 300 animal clans as they possibly could to take over the dominion of the Lizardkind. Carl, himself, would return to his headquarters to gain as much intel as he could from his boss Mr. Snuffles. Lenny was going to try and get in touch with as many of his old contacts from before he was exiled from the Frog Kingdom. After going over their plans one last time, they all set off to their individual tasks.

Carl arrived at headquarters late at night; however, he knew that Mr. Snuffles worked late and was always the last to leave the building. He placed his key card against the scanner for the elevator and stepped in. He took a deep, exhausted breath in, realising he had not slept for the last three days. This was something Carl was more than used to – his hours of spy training had more than prepared him for this. The elevator clicked past the 154th floor… The 155th…. 156th…

Carl was sure he could hear voice – lots of them. “That’s odd…” he thought to himself, especially when he thought only Mr Snuffles would be in the building. The elevator pinged loudly as he reached the 157th floor. Carl stepped out and walked slowly towards Mr Snuffles’s office door. The voices were louder now – although Carl couldn’t make much out. “There is definitely something going in there….” Carl slowly reached for the handle stopping for the briefest of moments….




Daily Video

Today’s video is a short one:


Here’s some questions to get you thinking:
1.) What is the seal about to do before it gets abducted?
2.) How does the seal get out of the glass container?
3.) How would you describe the green aliens?
4.) What do the aliens do to the seal?
5.) Why do you think the video is called “An Ordinary Seal”?



Today’s P.E. activity comes as another challenge by the East Shropshire Sports Partnership.
