If parents need to get in touch for any support with the work (or for usernames and passwords), please feel free to email me on:
Maths tasks are set every day, Monday to Friday. Please log on to your My Maths account to complete these tasks each day. Below there is are maths study guides to help you understand different concepts. I can also recommend the You Tube videos called Maths Antics as these are great at explaining maths ideas you may be finding tricky.
In addition to working through the class book, short texts and questions will be added here weekly for reading comprehension practice. Furthermore, there will be grammar and writing tasks to complete on Purple Mash.
Writing with inspiration
Every week I will put up a new link to a document which comes from a website called Pobble 365. There will be an interesting picture which will help provide inspiration for writing every week. There is a story starter, questions, sentence challenges and other activities to complete.
This term and moving into next, our class text is Street Child by Berlie Doherty. Please encourage your child to read a chapter a day if possible and answer the comprehension questions in the documents provided.
Once the children have completed reading Street Child we will set activities to be completed from the Read and Respond textbook (which is attached as a PDF). For example, complete activity 1 - 'Not just nouns' on page 19.
We are starting to study evolution in science. Each week a new PowerPoint and set of activities will be uploaded here. Activities will also be set on Purple Mash. There is a study guide attached below as a PDF to support you throughout.
You might like to visit this website to try out some experiments for evolution or any other area that interests you. Take pictures and let us know the results!
Outstanding Science - Evolution and Inheritance
Building on what they learned about fossils in the topic on rocks in year 3, pupils should find out more about how living things on earth have changed over time. They should be introduced to the idea that characteristics are passed from parents to their offspring, for instance by considering different breeds of dogs, and what happens when, for example, labradors are crossed with poodles. They should also appreciate that variation in offspring over time can make animals more or less able to survive in particular environments, for example, by exploring how giraffes� necks got longer, or the development of insulating fur on the arctic fox. Pupils might find out about the work of palaeontologists such as Mary Anning and about how Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace developed their ideas on evolution.
Whilst schools are closed this website is offering free streaming of an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being kids.
All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.
Explore the collection, select a title and start listening.
I will be setting some work too so check your 2todo list or please feel free to just explore the Computing section of Purple Mash. I have also set up a Computing Learning Display Board so it would be great to share some of your work with everyone too.
If you wish to explore the world of Computing further you could try the links below. They are both websites recommended for Computing and free to use but always check with an adult that they are happy too before you log on.
