Pinch punch for the first of the month!

The weekend is nearly apon us. Thank you once again for being such a hardworker! Also, a big thank you to your family who are doing a brilliant job of helping out, keeping you on track and keeping you safe. 



Reading: Complete the reading comprehension activity. 


Writing: Follow this link: read and watch the videos to recap the features of newspaper reports. 



Task: Write a newspaper report about the Lindisfarne attack. I have linked a factfile about the attack in the resource section. This will give you all of the information you need to know, however, it is up to you to use the information wisely. Read this carefully first and decide what you want to include in your report. 


The purpose of a newspaper report is to inform, but also to entertain. Your front page report needs to grab the reader's attention, with a bold headline and interesting introductory paragraph.


You can hand write your report or type it with supporting images. 



  • Warm-up: Complete the arithmetic sheet. Set your timer! laugh
  • Main task: Complete the entire double-page spread of maths problems on the document found at the bottom of this page. As you will see, the problems involve multiplication, division, addition and subtraction. Take your time, make jottings, draw pictures if you need to and use the written methods you know.
