Maths Homework (ongoing: until Autumn half-term).

Start working through the Y3 booklet for revision, just a page or so each week. There is an answer booklet included so that the children can check and mark their answers after each page. Please share the work with me on Class Dojo. I'm looking forward to seeing it!

Once the Y3 revision task is complete the children can begin working on the Y4 booklet afterwards.


Please see the list of spellings that begin with the suffix -in.

These are the spellings for this week. You will also see an activity to complete, where some of the letters are omitted. This lesson will be completed in class early this week so the children will become familiar with the words.


The Year 4 children have been discussing our planet, including how we should look after our environment, and all creatures that live on it. 

This project, which will last all half-term, invites the children to choose a wild animal of their choice to research. Every Monday there will be a new task to complete. See Week One below:

CBBC Newsround is a great tool to use in informing your child of what is happening in our world. They explain the news in a child-friendly way and have many videos related to BLM. Why not write up a report on a news announcement. 
Hi All,

I hope you have all managed to take a rest over what would have been our usual 2 weeks holidays from school.

As the world stands up and speaks out for social justice through the movement of Black Lives Matter, I know that a lot of us have been educating ourselves on what the movement represents and have been searching for the best ways to educate the minds of the little ones we influence.

Some people may have; actively taken part in the movement; listened to related podcasts; read up on the news; spoke to family and friends about their experiences related; watched programmes/documentaries etc.

There is always more you can be learning and more you can be understanding about the events/feelings/history of racism.

I have been researching some relevant activities/reading resources related to racism and Black Lives Matter in the hope that, as a class, we can do our bit and stand for what is right.

I will be posting these activities on class Dojo and our school website. Please feel free to share any useful resources you may have come across and I will share.

We are all in this together!

Miss Brien

Hi all,

As most of you will be aware, today marks the 3 year anniversary of the devastating Manchester Arena Bombing.

I know that, in our own way, we all will be taking moments throughout our day to remember those affected by the attack.

As a school, we have decided that we will use the following template to record down a message relating to the bombing and will hang them up around school. The message may; relate to what happened on that day; relate to how you were feeling; explain how your school came together to remember; be messages to those affected; be an uplifting message to the people of Manchester etc.

If you would like to take part, simply print off the bee template, write your message and either send the finished bee to me to print off in school or hang it up somewhere at home.

Stay safe and see you soon R'Kid.

R.A. Powell's Creative Writing Online Course for Children 



Over this isolation period, R.A. Powell has posted 6 videos which take children through an online writing course. The children are guided through the thinking process of creating a story and taught how to collate their imaginative ideas on paper.


The videos look at 6 main features of a story: 

1) Characterisation 

2) Setting 

3) Plot/narrative 

4) Dialogue (speech)

5) Theme 

6) Visual discriptions 


The idea is that the children have small writing tasks during the videos and tasks to complete before watching the next. At the end, the children could submit their copy to the author and he chose a winner. 


As we have missed the deadline for the competition, I thought it might be a good idea to hold this competition as a class. Children can take the course, submit their entries to me via email and I will decide on a winner by 17th July 2020. And yes...there will be a prize for the winner!


Children can complete the course at their own pace and can ask for any support on our class dojo. 


All videos can be found on youtube or the author's Facebook page which I have posted below. I have also posted the first video from the course.


Let the writing commence!  


* A special thank you to Maddison and her Mummy for the recommendation *

Then, complete some of the work on the worksheets with adding and subtracting fractions (answers on the sheets that follow the worksheets). If you would like do a little more work, go through the powerpoints and complete the colourful worksheets provided. Please contact me on classdojos if there are any issues. Miss Brien :)

Daily Reading Activities - How to Skin a Bear

A fantastic Key Stage 2 story all about the Stone Age. Follow a girl called Bee and her tribe as they trek to their summer camp, and learn all about hand axes, cave paintings and the very first settlements.


The daily activities has an author that reads each chapter to your child. You might choose to get your child to read the chapter themselves before watching the video or do a mixture of both. Each activity has answers in the teacher/adult guidance and the tasks on the worksheets progress to greater depth questions. You may just choose to complete the first tasks. You might even choose to read the text one day and then complete the tasks another day.

Maths - Fractions Greater Than 1 

To complete work above, go through the powerpoint above getting your child to attempt questions on a white board or pad. The powerpoint will then reveal the answers. The worksheets fo from basic to greater depth work, so get your child to attempt the first page, then continue working through if you feel they can. I will be posting maths sessions in similar formats. 



After working through the powerpoint and work above, see if your child can solve the following problem solving and reasoning tasks. Example answers are in red. 


English - Marshmallows 

Week Beginning Monday 6th April 2020 


Watch the clip 'Marshmallow' by following the link below. Describing the setting in the video, get your child to rewrite the sentences below, making them more interesting. They can do this by: saying where things in the sentences are, use adjectives before the nouns, use adjectives after a noun, add extra detail (you might have to use conjunctions), use similes. I have also posted some links and documents to support learning. You could push your child even further by getting them to put their sentences into paragraphs. Remember, your child can also post their work on our Class Dojos. 



Maths - Equivalent Fractions 

Week Beginning: Monday 30th March 2020


We recently introduced the unit of equivalent fractions. We looked at using shapes to work out equivalent. Children should now progress to using multiplication to work out equivalent fractions. If your child is struggling with using multiplication, stick to using bars or shapes like in the example I have put together below. I also thought it might be nice for your children to have a look at something I have been doing at my own house.

The bottom number is the denominator and the top is the numerator.  Attention should be drawn to multiplying the numerators and denominators by the same number to ensure the fractions are equivalent. 

Have a go...
