541 - 361 =

315 + 656 = 

302 - 156 =

621 + 152 =

840 - 365 =

470 + 476 =

700 - 565 =

594 + 302 =

647 - 370 =

371 + 832 =

806 - 319 =

696 + 749 =



Please have a look at this week's spellings and complete the related worksheet.



When completing calculations, there are different ways of to check if your answer is reasonable. One way is to use the inverse calculation, so that you are not potentially repeating an error. For example, to check that 134 + 45 = 179, you can do a subtraction to check you are correct:


179 - 45 should equal 134 if your initial calculation was correct.


Your task over the next two days is to complete the worksheet attached. 




Have a look at this BBC bitesize page on subordinating conjunctions. Then, have a look at the picture prompt below. Think about:


  • What is happening here?
  • Why/how is the carpet floating?
  • How is the boy feeling? Was he expecting this to happen?
  • How is the dog feeling? How do you know?
  • Does this bedroom belong to the boy? What does the setting tell you about his character?
  • What will happen next?


Write a paragraph or two about this scene. Can you include some subordinating conjunctions to add extra information? You could also include:

  • Similes
  • Description 
  • Adverbials
