So here is your home learning for today.
Isambard-Kingdom Brunel famously designed the Great Western Railway from London to the South West that includes the Railway bridge that goes over the River Tamar. You will have travelled across his bridge if you were on a train heading for Cornwall! You get a great view of his railway bridge when you travel to Cornwall by car. Carefully watch this Dick and Dom YouTube clip and record facts about the great man.
Some interesting facts to find out would include…

Make sure you send your work in to our class email.
Today we are going to use the bite size daily for out maths work. Today’s lesson is all about subtracting money. You could record workings in your books.
Please continue to use TTRS to practice your times tables.
Here is an extra game for you to try. Create a bridge to get a train across the ravine safely.
Brunel was famous for his bridges amongst other things. Make your own bridge that would take the weight of a small toy train or toy car. You can use anything to build your bridge. You could raid your recycling boxes, build from lego or use sticks outdoors. Remember to take a photo before you test your bridges! Please send any creations to the class email.
