Good Morning Hawthorn Class!


Here are the activities we would like you to complete today. You can choose what order you do the activities in, but we suggest trying to do the English and Maths in the morning. You can print the work if you want to or you can read from the screen and answer on paper. Please save anything you do to bring into school once we are back so we can have a look at it. You can also ask your grown-ups to e-mail a copy to us each day.


1) English

Today I’d like you to write a poem all about a sunflower. Start by labelling the Magic Sunflower picture with some adjectives or expanded noun phrases that you could use to describe it. Here are some examples you could magpie:

  • magnificent
  • delicate, golden petals
  • unbelievably tall
  • strong, smooth stem

Then use these words and phrases to write an acrostic poem. Write the word ‘Sunflower’ down the side of your page. You could do this in felt tip or bubble writing to make it stand out. Then start each line of the poem with one of the letters in ‘sunflower’:


Strong, smooth stem, growing tall towards the sky,










2) Maths - Multiplication and division 

Lesson 5 - Using bar models to represent known times tables


Don’t forget to start with the intro quiz.

This lesson will relate arrays and bar models as ways of visualising multiplication questions and solving calculations.


Below you will find the worksheet ‘using bar models’.


3) Spellings

Complete the spelling activity below to practise your spellings. 


4) Topic – Computing

We are still working on coding. For your lesson today we will be following ‘An Hour of Code’. Click the link and follow the instructions for some Star Wars coding fun. When you open up the webpage, click ‘Blocks’ (not Java script). You don’t have to watch the videos in between but they do give some examples of how coding is used in the real world. After each challenge, it will automatically progress you onto the next level. There is no login required.  Star Wars |


5) PE

We will be doing Crazy Dancing on Zoom this afternoon so practise your moves. After that, open up the ‘Fitness station’ activity from the resource section and carry out each activity for about 30 seconds. Alternatively, you could create your own fitness circuit.
