Friday 19th June

Good morning Chestnut Class!

 

How did you get on yesterday?

 

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.

 

Remember your Science / Craft Garden project?

 

Here is something completely different!

 

 

      

 

 

 

Here is your Home Learning for Friday 19th June.

 

Active Time

It’s really great to get moving in the mornings so that you feel ready to learn and able to concentrate.

 

Academic Time

 

English

 

Spellings – Remember to practise for 10 minutes today at least.

 

Are you remembering to practise your spellings? Ask an adult to test you on 10-15 of the key Year 3 and 4 words each day this week. I wonder how many you know off by heart.

 

 

Friday English

 

Information Writing / Non-Chronological Reports

 

Complete your information leaflet. You should be reaching the final stage and adding finishing touches.

 

Now you are publishing a careful finished product. Use plain paper or a double page in your English book.

 

Use pencil for any bold headings or to mark out any spaces on your page.

Use a ruler to draw straight lines and join the main writing. You might use capital letters for your headings or sub headings.

 

Remember:

Decide which headings you are going to use.

How are you going to arrange your pages?

Are you going to use a folding format? More than one page?

Are you going to write by hand or on a computer?

Where are your illustrations going to go?

Will you use drawings or print off some photos? You could take photos of yourself doing the activity!

Will you include any special fact boxes?

How can you engage your reader?

 

Make your work as neat and attractive as you can. When your work is complete, send a photo to us for our class gallery!

 

 

Maths

 

Today’s Maths

 

Complete these 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:

  1. 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.
  2. Set timer to give a maximum of 5 minutes. Start the timer!
  3. The children mentally work out each answer and write it in the box.
  4. 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 on Monday.

 

 

 

More Maths…..

 

Twinkl has a massive range of maths worksheets available if you wish to supplement the daily class maths.

 

Maths Salamander also has a host of activities to try, some of which you can do from a screen or print off.

 

The White Rose website has stopped providing free worksheets for children, though you can still access the video clips for free tutorials on a theme.

 

 

Some more choices…..

 

Keeping up to date:

Watch Newsround and discuss what is happening in the wider world. Talk to your family about the stories which are on today. What do you think?

 

Music/ singing

If you like singing, there are loads of songs to choose from here! Did you know that black socks never get dirty!

 Art / Craft

It is Father’s Day on 21st June.  Why not make a card for the special men in your family – Dad, Grandad, Uncle? Here are a couple more  simple ideas. But a hand drawn card is always a lovely thing to receive!

 

   

Family Matters / Time to talk - As a family, discuss the famous people that may have had an impact on their lives and the choices they have made about the jobs they have chosen. Talk about who has inspired them and why. Your child can create a family tree that illustrates inspirations and choices

 

Everyday learning:

 

Active Time

Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy.

This might be:

 

  • You can find Pav’s work out activities! You can find his workouts in the resources section. Have a look at Week 8.
  • 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.

 

2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s for Year 3. 

Year 4 – Your goal is to know all the times tables up to 12 x 12.

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.

The Maths Factor is another good online game to practise tables:

And to finish: Here is the answer to yesterday’s  riddle:

 

Riddle:        What begins with an E but only has one letter in it?

 

Answer:  An envelope   

 

Today’s riddle:

 

What has one head, one foot and four legs?

 

I’ll post the answer on Monday!

 

You could send me some riddles if you like!
