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.
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.

Today, some more punctuation:
I’ve been having a bit of trouble with spelling and punctuation myself lately! I wonder if you can be the teacher and help me correct my sentences?
Rewrite these in your books using the correct punctuation. Please underline or highlight where you have corrected mistakes.
- Pauls birthday is in febrary.

- i dont think you should’ve told him
- that scarf isnt long enuff.

I have posted the answers to Thursday’s mental maths in a document below.
Here is a new times tables game you might like to try online:
Complete this in your green maths book.
On Fridays, in class, we do a times tables test!
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 after half term. Let me know how you get on!
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.
How many parts of the flower can you name from memory?
Optional Creative time:
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?
Why not learn the Song of the Week with Sing Up?
We've got another animal-inspired song for you this week with the gorgeous Baby beluga. Super singable, sweet and all about a happy beluga whale playing, singing and staying safe at home.
Learn the song and sing along with our fun video from Sing Up's own Charlotte Law.
Why not play Reading Bingo?
There are lots of different things to read here. See if you can get five in a row, or even a full house!
A little more maths with some added art!
Make a times tables flower for a table you are learning. You will need 12 petals to include all the facts.
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 4.
- 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 Thursday’s riddle:
Riddle: There's a bungalow where everything is yellow. The walls are yellow. The doors are yellow. Even all the furniture is yellow. The house has yellow beds and yellow couches. What colour are the stairs?
Answer: It’s a bungalow. There are no stairs!
What’s quite easy to get into, but hard to get out of?
You’ll have to wait till after half term to find out the answer!
You could send me some riddles if you like!
