Kindness

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week started on Monday and this year’s theme is kindness.  You can access the website for more information here:

https://www.mentalhealth.org.uk/campaigns/mental-health-awareness-week 

 

Today I would like you to spend some time doing something that will help you relax, let go of any worries you have and generally feel calm, happy and ready to tackle the day ahead.  This is part of being kind to yourself.  You could try one of the links below, or maybe you have a different idea that you would like to share with the class.  If so, you can always send an email to our class address.  I have also uploaded a couple of mindfulness colouring pages which appear after the video links.

Quick Maths

Today’s challenge: Addition 5 Minute Frenzy

Choose one of the sheets below, (either numbers to 10 or 2-digit numbers to 50) use a clock or timer set to 5 minutes and see how many calculations you can answer correctly in that time.  Did you beat the score you achieved on Tuesday?

Maths

We are going to continue using the BBC Bitesize website.  This week’s work will help reinforce the White Rose Maths fractions work from a few weeks ago.  Have a go at one of these Maths lessons using the links below: 

 

Y3 = Tenths

Y4 = Compare fractions, including those greater than 1

Spelling

If you haven’t already done so, please log on to Spelling Shed and try to complete this week’s game 5 times.  Remember you can increase (or decrease) the difficulty if necessary. 

 

If you have completed this assignment and you are looking for something else, why not try one or two of the activities from the ‘Challenge Weeks’ pack.  You can use this week’s spellings or choose some of the tricky words from the Year 3/4 additional word list. 

English

Today’s lesson focuses on a poem called ‘In the Cave’.  If you choose to have a go at writing your own poem, the planning sheet provided prompts you to imagine a mysterious, ruined castle.  This ties in perfectly with last term’s topic.

       

Please remember that you don’t have to complete all of the activities suggested within each of these Hamilton Trust plans.  Reading and talking about the poems is the most important task.

R.E.

Thursday 23rd April 2020 marked the start of Ramadan, an important time of the year for Muslims.  Eid al-Fitr is the festival at the end of Ramadan and it takes place this weekend.  It will begin in the evening of Saturday 23rd May and ends in the evening of Sunday 24th May.

There is a video you can watch on Espresso (remember you will need your login details) or you can look through the PowerPoint to find out more:

Reading

 

Why not read this Twinkl original story? Unfortunately I could not upload the electronic book which is more interactive, so I have copied the PDF version. 

If you have a Lexia or Nessy login, don't forget to keep up with your usage.  Try to spread it out throughout the week in short blocks (i.e. no more than 20 mins at a time).
