 PAGE UPDATE: Monday 18th January


Great effort with your Banksy work last week. This week, can we do the same, but on the subject of MARTIN LUTHER KING. Watch this week's assembly first for some ideas and then do a little bit of independent research each day. On Thursday and Friday, think about how you would like to present your findings and once you have completed your work, please send it over to me to read.


Suggested  timetable for school closure: Week beginning 18-01-21


If you have access to the zoom application on one of your devices and would like to take part in some poetry on Tuesday, please email me for the meeting ID. I am also aiming to do a little bit of maths on Wednesday in a zoom session. Hopefully see you there...

This week, we will be working from an English booklet, titled 'One Chance'. I will direct you to the activity that I would like you to do each day and we will do some poetry together in our zoom session on Tuesday. This booklet is designed so that you can work independently, following the instructions at the top of each page.

AM : English: In the booklet, please read page 2 and then have a go at completing the sentence level work on pages 3 and 4. These are titled 'The Downside'. The children have to think about things that they could wish for, but then use the conjunction 'however' to think of a downside to that wish- there are some examples on those pages for the children to follow.

AM2: Maths: Multiplying a 3 digit number by a single digit:

Multiplying by a single digit.pdf - these are organised in levels of difficulty. Please choose ONE set to complete (3 stars is the most challenging and the children will know what they are capable of achieving)

Multiplication support video - this should help the children go over the method that we have looked at in class. They can use this video for the first 3 days of this week.

PM: Independent research task for the week - Watch this week's assembly about Martin Luther King and begin to make some notes about his life - the powerpoint assembly is on the home page of the school website. Here are some additional links to start you off and you are welcome to find your own too.

Please use yesterday's video to familiarise yourself with the method used when multiplying a given number by a TWO digit number. Again, choose ONE set of calculations to complete - they are organaised by level of difficulty.

PM: Science: Lifecycles continued - including frogs

I would like the children to produce a diagram to represent the lifecycle of an insect OR an amphibian. Remember to use a pencil for your drawings and an ink pen for your labels - add some colour if you wish. Here are some support materials to help you...

There is also a link to listen to the story below.  Please follow the story and fill in the 'I predict' section. I'd also like you to have a go at finding the definitions to the words in the table on pages 10 and 11 -think about the meaning of the words and if you are unsure, you can find their meanings by asking google. Please stop here though, as the work on synonyms is for Thursday.

Then I'd like you to use some of these words in your own sentences. We can end today's work by commenting on things you liked/disliked about the story. Please stop when you get to the section 'Closer Reading' on page 16. I have attched a powerpoint link to remind you of what synonyms are and a link to BBC Bitesize.

As part of our recovery curriculum post lockdown, the second half of the Autumn Term will see us re-visit the key words from the Year3/4 curriculum. The sooner we recognise and learn these spellings and apply them in our own writing, the sooner we can move on to the Year 5/6 curriculum spellings.


Below is the link to the whole list and we will split them into manageable sections for our weekly spelling tests. There are also links to handwriting practice sheets to help with lead in strokes and joins.
