Good morning, we hope you had a lovely Easter. The tweets and emails are lovely to see what you are getting up to at home – Keep them coming.

Here are some activities and suggestions for this week’s learning. Stay safe and we can’t wait to see you all again. 

Miss Green and Mrs Hanley x

Maths weekly focus: Time / Telling of the time 

Design a poster, song, rhyme anything to help you remember: the number of seconds in a minute, minutes in an hour, hours in a day, number of days in each month, days in a year and leap year. Make your own clock to use with this weeks learning. Read the time from clocks around your house both using 12 and 24 hour clock. (worksheets on the left) Event duration – If its 8 o’clock when I wake up and it is 1 hour 15 minutes until my favourite TV programme. What time does the programme begin? Write some of your own word problems and work out the time difference. 

Literacy (including handwriting/spelling/reading) Read, read, read. 

If you have finished your reading challenge book – Complete a review. Write in role as a character. Write any key information you have found out. Read any books you have at home. Spelling: See the “Spot the Spelling errors” document on the left. Keep writing and adding a paragraph each day to your daily diary (you can add pictures) 

Write a story including the 5 key words: dance, famous, swim, sun, imagine. Be creative, imaginative and we would love to read some of these if you email them to our class page. 

Other ideas: Look on the right of this page for some other curriculum ideas under PDF 6.

Last week we saw excellent examples of your learning and creativity on our school Twitter page. We really enjoyed the TT battle and hope you did – Well done on the win. 

Mrs Hanley is keeping fit by going for a run each morning – give her a shout from your window if you see her! I’m completing the daily Joe Wicks challenge – I love starting the day with exercise. Most importantly we hope you are staying safe and well.

Miss Green & Mrs Hanley x

Acts of Kindness: 

In school we discussed acts of kindness to complete throughout Lent. Reflect on what acts of kindness you have completed whilst at home.  Have you helped wash the pots? Given someone a hug? Helped with jobs around the house? Set the dinner table without being asked? Tidied your room?

Design a poster/leaflet with the acts of kindness you have completed, including a picture and remember to add colour.

Holy Week:

Home learning ideas you may complete throughout Holy Week. Create a booklet about the Easter Story to share - Below are some suggested art themed activities for you to complete after your writing.

Monday: Yesterday was Palm Sunday: Design your own Palm to celebrate Jesus entering Jerusalem. 

Tuesday: Jesus washed his disciples feet: Draw around your foot and write key words to show why Jesus washed his disciples feet - For example: serve, lead, example, love. 

Wednesday: The Last Supper. Draw a picture of Jesus with his disciples at the last supper. Add some speech bubbles around to show what the disciples/Jesus may be thinking/saying. 

Thursday: Garden of Gethsemane – Draw or design your own garden using materials from your garden and maybe an old shoebox/cereal box? Make a collage to recreate Jesus’ visit to the Garden and act out. 

You may want to write a prayer as Jesus/one of the disciples. 


  • Times table rock stars.
  • See PDF for targets/daily ideas.
  • Abacus: I have added some worksheets, mastery tasks and interactive games to your accounts. Keep working on them. Remember it needs to be completed 100% at Bronze, Silver and Gold level to be completed.

To complete: The uploaded equivalent fraction sheets.


Focus on your joins and spelling when you write out The Easter Story.

Practise this week's spellings from the attached PDF document on the left of the page. Test yourself Friday as we would usually in school.


(Y3/4 objective – Colours)
2 sheets: easy & expert. You choose which you complete. 

  • Could you use your expert knowledge and teach someone else the colours in French?
  • After, you could find things around your house to represent each colour.
  • Using the objects have a game of ‘French Colour Bingo!’


  • Joe Wicks 9am daily challenge OR Go Noodle (see main page)
  • Set up your own obstacle course in the garden (it may include: skipping, jumping, hopping, push ups, jumping jacks,
  • Remember to warm up and cool down*

For those who completed the French crack the code.

The answer follows: 4, 17, 18, 26, 21, 16, 2.

Home learning for 30.3/31.3


I have uploaded the answer sheet for 3.16 for you to check and mark your work.

Log on to your Abacus account – Under current allocations - Complete sheet 3.6 and 3.13(doubling and fractions focus) Practice your doubles. (These need to be known super speedy, keep practising – The Pesky Pests game 3.6b will help)

Remember to think carefully about what we have already covered for fractions and I will upload the answer sheet for you to check your answers.  Top Tip: If you need to draw a fraction wall to help, I have added a picture in the left hand column. These are like the ones which we made in class at the start of our fraction topic.


1) Read the Roald Dahl reading detectives playscript on ‘The Twits’ which we put in your home learning pack. Can you act out the parts with someone at home? Remember to read using expression.

2) Answer the questions from your pack as we would usually in your exercise book.

3) Can you write your own play script based on a book you have read? We have already covered  playscripts in school when you went on an imaginary adventure.

Can you include in your writing:

  • A title for your play script
  • Short paragraph to set the scene
  • Names in the margin for your characters to show who is speaking
  • Stage directions to show how your characters would move/speak


ART- Get creative and enjoy an afternoon of Art. You could begin your river journey model? Recycle materials from around your family home to create a master piece?

Write a diary entry about your week. Remember to try hard with your handwriting and spellings.
What have you worked on? What have you enjoyed? Have you helped around your house? Have you completed any of the PE Joe Wicks challenges? Are you becoming a times table genius on TT rock stars?

Spend 20 minutes reading today (you might want to do this out in the garden if it is still sunny!) You can choose from your reading challenge book, any books/magazines you already have at home.

Can you practise the numbers 1-30 like we have in class? You might want to have a game of French bingo (You always enjoy that!) Challenge - Can you crack Miss Green’s code?

B) Dix + Sept = ?
C) Neuf x Deux = ?
D) Vingt Cinq + Un = ?

UPDATE 2: POSTED 24/03/20

I hope you are all well and ready to go! Wake up - make your bed, eat breakfast, brush your teeth, tidy your room – Your usual morning routine before schools begins.

Yesterday, I participated in the Joe Wicks 30 minute exercise LIVE at 9am! This morning you should do the same. It is a lot of fun and starts your day great. Use the link on the class pages to tune in. Make sure you have water with you – hydration is key.


I can find pairs of 2 digit numbers to total 100. (see picture A for help) Remember these need to be known super quick. Maybe write them down before? After, practise rapid recall.

Extension: I can work out what must be added to any 3 digit number to make the next multiple of 100. (see picture B for help)


Literacy and Language blue book – Unit 2, Homework 1. Homophones.
Read the homophone poem. Can you find the homophones? Write them into your book. Write them into a sentence to show you understand the difference.

For example:

[A] Blew [B] Blue
[A] The wind blew the leaves around the playground.
[B] My favourite colour is blue.


Why not...

  • Draw/paint/colour a picture to give to someone?
  • Find something in your house and sketch it in detail?
  • Go and play in your garden?
  • Make a dance routine to your favourite song?
  • Help someone at home with jobs around the house?

I’m sure you are all working hard at home - Have another good day. Speak to you soon!
