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 

 

Kindness brings huge benefits for everyone.  You make someone feel good, you feel good as a result of your actions and those who see what you are doing are inspired to act kindly themselves!  So today I would like you to think about being kind to your family and recognising their acts of kindness towards others too.  I have uploaded some resources that may help you.  

You may even be inspired to create something to share with your family.  For example, you could make a ‘Kindness Tree’ to display somewhere in your home.  You could add leaves or blossom with suggestions for acts of kindness; or they could be used to keep a record of kind acts witnessed by members of the family, or both!  

P.E.

Are you looking for something different to do?  Why not take a look at the ‘Rivers and Mountains Workout’ sheets for some ideas to get you moving.

Alternatively, you could start your day by joining Joe Wicks for his daily live P.E. session which can be accessed here: https://www.youtube.com/user/thebodycoach1 

 

Reading

Remember to set aside some time for independent reading.  If you are looking for some ideas for your next read, try looking through the recommended reads for Year 3 and Year 4, (see our ‘Useful Links’ section) have a look at the latest edition of First News (use the link under the ‘Children’ tab on the homepage) or try reading one of the Accelerated Reader articles which you can then complete a quiz on (see parents’ guide below).     

 

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).

 

Spelling

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.

English

To link in with your current science topic, today’s lesson focuses on a poem called ‘All Creatures’.   

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.

Quick Maths

Please log on to Purple Mash and complete the ‘Label Shapes’ task which has been set as a 2do.  There are also a couple of matching pairs games that you can play if you wish - one for 2D shapes and the other for 3D shapes.

 

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:
