Escape From Pompeii - The Book

Home learning plan for Tuesday 21st  April 2020


Good morning and welcome from Mrs H-E. 


9.00 – 9.30 Let’s start the day with some P.E. 

Joe Wicks #PEwithJoe



9.30 – 10.30 Maths

9.30 – 9.45 TT Rock Stars

I know this is the same as yesterday but practising every day will make you better quicker – believe me!

Play in the garage or arena as this will improve your rock status and SET THE TIME TO 1 MINUTE (INSTEAD OF 3).  This will help you to get to Rock Hero more quickly too.

If you’ve not been on before don’t worry.  Have a look at it and try to find your way around.  If you’ve not got your log on details then email me.

I will start to give out some housepoints for playing on TT Rock Stars.


9.45-10.30 Maths lesson

Go through the powerpoint – I believe you’ve done this lesson before so see what you remember.


  1.  Write the date 21.4.2020
  2. Write L.O. Tenths (1)
  3. Now have a go at answering the questions in your maths home learning book.
  4. If you want to print the sheet and use that you can but you don’t need to do that.


10.30 -10.45 Break Time


10.45-11.45 English

10.45 – 11.00 Spellings

Write out your spellings again.  By the end of the week you should be confident with them.  If you’d prefer, play the game on Emile set under assignments.   





Example Words

Common exception words


Spelt ‘sc’- sound  /s/

science scientist scissors scene

fascinated discipline adolescent







I will set one ASSIGNMENT each week for spellings and I want you to have a go at COPYING the spellings from the spelling list (they are above and on the class page – summer 1).  Then, either play the game on Emile to learn them or write them down in the back of your English home learning book.  When on Emile, you can type using the keyboard of your computer, or tap on letters on your tablet screen.  The username and password is the same as your TT Rock Stars


Remember – this is your learning – don’t cheat.  It’s about you being the very best learner that you can be.  That’s all I will ever ask of you.


11.00 - 11.45 English


Read the first 6 pages of Escape from Pompeii.  Make a note of any interesting vocabulary that you find.  Look up any words that you don’t know.  Here is a YouTube clip of the story being Read.


I know that you have heard this story before but this means we all know it and do some further learning about the story and the Romans.


12.00 – 12.30 Reading

Enjoy some reading time.  Read your own book.  If you’ve not got one, then access 

There are lots to choose from.  Other sites are available too such as Epic!

Or you can read a book you have at home.   



General Advice

Try to do what you can and don’t worry.  It will take time for us all to get used to new ways of working and doing things in different ways. Be kind to yourself.  We will get better and things will get easier  J

If you’ve managed to log onto Goggle Classroom you could show me some of your learning.

Take care everyone.  See you soon.

Mrs Halden-Evans
