Good morning Chestnut Class!
It’s Friday and nearly the weekend! I hope you had a busy day yesterday, and enjoyed your learning activities.
Don’t forget, you can email me with any questions, or to share work with us. You can also share any other interesting activities you have been doing, especially if you have been learning new skills.
Here is your Home Learning for Friday.
It’s really great to get moving in the mornings so that you feel ready to learn and able to concentrate.

Friday Writing Activity
Complete this task in your purple writing book or type it and email it if you prefer.
While we have been at home, I have really enjoyed being able to read more. I’ve read lots of detective stories, but am just about to start a novel set in Venice, a place I really love. I will be able to imagine the streets, canals and buildings while I read – a way to travel in my imagination, while I am not able to travel much in real life!
When I was a child, I loved Enid Blyton books as well as Roald Dahl whose books were around then! James and the Giant Peach was the first one I think, along with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator. It’s a long time ago, but they are still among my favourites!
Today I would like you to write a book review for your favourite book. This could be a picture book, chapter book, information book. It is totally up to you what you choose.
In your review, you could include:
- Briefly explain what the book is about.
- If it’s a fiction book (story) you could talk about the characters and setting.
- Is it a book that makes you laugh or gives you lots of information about a topic that you’re interested in?
- What is it about the book that makes it your favourite?
- Try to encourage other people to read the book too.
Here is an example of what your review might look like:
My Book Review- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
I have just finished reading this book by Roald Dahl. He has written lots of other books that I enjoy, including James and the Giant Peach and The Twits.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a story about a young boy called Charlie. His family is very poor. One day he wins a ticket to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. I really loved the chapter where they went inside the factory and went into the amazing chocolate room, complete with chocolate waterfall! It sounds like an amazing place to visit; I’d love to go there! Willy Wonka is a very funny character who made me laugh.
I would definitely recommend this book to other people because it’s funny and there is lots of interesting description about amazing chocolates and sweets!

Complete this in your green maths book.
On Fridays, in class, we do a times tables test! Let’s see if you can do one at home.
Parents: the children are very familiar with this routine. This is how it works:
- Copy the grid into your Maths book, using a ruler and one digit per box. The children choose how many rows to try. It’s a minimum of 5 rows, with an extra one or two for more challenge.
- Set timer to give a maximum of 5 minutes. Start the timer!
- The children mentally work out each answer and write it in the box.
- We mark it together and the children give themselves a score out of 50 or 60 or 70.
Here is this week’s Times Table Challenge! I will provide the answers tomorrow.
The White Rose website provides daily lessons with videos explain an element of maths.
There are different lessons for year 3 and year 4. This week the focus is on fractions and decimals.
Let’s use our language skills today!
Can you make a little number dictionary for the numbers 1-10 in Spanish? Here they are:
You can also use the link below and in Friday resources to help you practise saying the numbers and counting in Spanish.
Please make an A4 poster to show the numbers. You could draw a number of objects next to each Spanish number to show how many – ducks, eggs, houses, anything you like! Send me a photo of your puzzle when it’s finished!
Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy.
This might be:
- Pav has set you a squats challenge. Start with 15 and try to increase the amount you can do by 5 each day. He also shows you how you can make it easier or harder.
You can find Pav’s work out activities! You can find his workouts in the resources section. Have a look at Week 1.
- PE with Joe! (Joe Wicks’ daily workout on YouTube)
- Set up your own carousel – you could include running, jumping, kangaroo hops, mummy kicks, star jumps. Do 30 seconds of each in rotation, then repeat two or three times.
- How many laps of your garden can you run in 10 minutes? Can you continue without walking? If that is hard work, you could run one lap, and then walk one lap.
Reading: Aim for at least one of these each day.
- Read independently – this could be your own book or a book from the Bug Club books which also have activities to complete – comprehension questions and little quizzes.
- Twinkl and Oxford Owls also have a selection of eBooks you can read online, and you can also visit the Norfolk library service and "borrow" online books.
- Read to an adult or older sibling. Talk about your book and what you are enjoying. Can you read with really good expression and intonation? Can you use voices for the different characters?
- You can also read magazines, comics or newspapers – ask your parents for ideas of what else you could read. How about a recipe book, machine manual or instruction booklet?
- Remember to explore new vocabulary when you read. Can you look in a dictionary to find out what new words mean?
- Remember, you can keep a reading record at the back of your writing book if you like.
Spellings: aim for 10 minutes a day.
Practise some of the spelling words you need to learn.
Start with the Year one / two words and find out which ones you still need to learn. You can tick the ones you can spell off by heart. If you are confident with all of these, you can begin learning the Year 3 and 4 words.
Pick 4 or 5 a day and use LOOK-SAY-COVER-WRITE-CHECK to practise each one.
Times tables: aim for 10 minutes a day.
Practise your tables every day, even for a few minutes!
3s, 4s and 8s for Year 3.
Year 4 - when you know these, concentrate on 6s and 9s next.
Write out the table you are learning from memory. Then ask an adult to muddle them up. Ask them to test you.
You can also play Hit the Button online, which is an easy and fun way to practise tables.
And to finish: A Riddle….
