Friday 3rd April
You should have been reading 'Street Child', the class book which is on this class page . Write a book review (set on Purple Mash) to explain what has happened so far and what you think of the book. Use the 'Think About' section as guidance. This is due after the holiday so plenty of time to read the story.

Please feel free to contact me if you need support with completing any of the work set. Stay safe and I look forward to seeing you all again soon,
Please use Purple Mash as there will be tasks set on this site regularly for you to complete. Purple Mash logins have been sent home and if you were not in school this week it will be sent to you shortly via post.
Be sure to regularly check our blog for updates. To access this, once logged onto Purple Mash, please click on Sharing > Shared Blogs > Liverpool Street Learning Blog.
You should have a login for My Maths, if anyone is unsure of passwords you can email me and I will re-issue them.
Please see My Maths every Monday to Friday for regular updates of work. 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.
There is work that has been set on purple mash for you to complete on evolution and each week there will be fresh activities for you to do.
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.
You might want to visit this website to try out some of the experiments that interest you. You can take pictures and let us know your findings.
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.
