Wednesday 10th June 2020



You could start your day by joining Joe Wicks again for his daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here: 


Are you looking for something different to do?  Why not take a look at the Athletics Activities below – a set of six activities that can be completed at home with your family, using simple items that hopefully you will have access to.

Quick Maths

Our school has signed up for a free trial of a new website called ‘Busy Things’.  I would like you to help trial it by completing the assignment I have set for this week.  Follow the link and the instructions below to access the task and then explore the website for yourself.  You can always let me know what you think by sending a quick email to our class address.

Click on ‘Ages 7-11’ and then click on ‘Ages 7-9’.

Click on ‘My Assignments’ in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

You will see a list of assignments.  Look for those ‘Assigned by: Mrs Irving’.

Choose: ‘Multiples Quiz – Ages 7-8’ (Multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100)

         orMultiples Quiz – Ages 8-9’ (Multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1000).

You will be able to review your answers once you have submitted the quiz.  This will show you which questions you got right and wrong.  Don’t forget to logout when you have finished by clicking on the door icon on the left of the screen.  Have fun!



Have a go at one of these BBC Bitesize Maths lessons using the links below: 


Y3 = Equivalent fractions: finding missing numerators and denominators   


Y4 = Problem solving using hundredths 


Reading and English

Today there are slightly different tasks again depending on which guided reading text you are reading on Purple Mash.  This is to make sure all 3 groups finish reading the story and complete all related tasks this week, so that we can start reading a new text related to our history work (Stone Age) next week.


The Porchester Park Project


Please read Chapters 6 and 7 of your guided reading text (either independently or with an adult) and answer the multiple choice questions that follow each chapter.  Each of these tasks has been set as a 2Do on Purple Mash (4 in total). 


This takes you to the end of the story!       


A Bit of a Hero


Please read Chapter 5 of your guided reading text and answer the multiple choice questions that follow.  Both of these tasks have been set as 2Dos on Purple Mash.



Then there are two more tasks below to complete related to Chapter 5.  It would be good to discuss your answers to the open-ended questions with an adult at home.  This takes you to the end of the story!

Ned and the Three Bears


Please read Chapter 5 of your guided reading text and answer the multiple choice questions that follow.  Both of these tasks have been set as 2Dos on Purple Mash.



Then complete the spelling, punctuation and grammar activities that can be printed using the document below.  This takes you to the end of the story!   


If you can, print and complete this week’s sheets from Spelling Shed.  If you are unable to print you can copy the lists and practise on paper.


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).




We are going to find out about changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age over the next few weeks.  This is a new topic for the Year 3 children in our class; for the Year 4 children, this will help you revise some of the teaching and learning from your Autumn term topic in 2018 (A long, long time ago…).


Following on from yesterday’s task, read the second PowerPoint below to find out more about the earliest humans (hunter-gatherers) and the food they ate.

I have provided a copy of the stewed fruit recipe if you are interested in trying it out.  Please be aware, the list of ingredients includes nuts.  Avoid using any kind of nut if you or anyone in your family has an allergy.  Of course, you could adapt the recipe to suit your tastes! 

If you haven’t already done so and you would like to, you could have a go at making an example (or examples) of a Stone Age tool by printing the paper models or designing and making your own using real materials!  I have provided a couple of resource sheets to help guide you if you would like to create your own.
