Monday 11th May

Good morning Chestnut Class!

 

I hope you had a lovely long weekend. Did you see or take part in any of the VE Day celebrations? Lots of people in my village put out bunting and Union Jacks, which was lovely to see as I ran round.

 

On Sunday, I completed a personal challenge – running 80km for my Hurricane Challenge. I will get my medal in the post soon!

 

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 Monday 11th May.

 

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

 

Monday English

Story writing

Over the next few days, I would like you to write a story based on a theme. The title of the story is “Being Big”.  

 

 

Today I would like you to work on some vocabulary.

 

Find as many words as you can which mean “big”. Make a list of these adjectives in your writing book. Use a thesaurus or an online thesaurus with an adult.

 

Improve these sentences:

The big boy climbed over the car.

He placed a big foot on the ground.

He went over the wall.

He was big.

People ran when they saw him.

They were scared.

You can use adjectives and adverbs to add more description. You can change the verbs to make each sentence more dramatic and add another clause to include more detail.

You can add “which” to give more information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday Maths

Today we are going to work on multiplying 2 and 3 digit numbers.

We use a grid for this and I will show you how it works. Please use the grid method in your calculations. Use a ruler to draw your grids!

 

 

You can choose your level of challenge.

I will post the answers tomorrow.

More Maths…..

The White Rose website provides daily lessons with videos explain an element of maths.

 

There are different lessons for year 3 and year 4. 

Have a look at Week 4.  This week the focus is on multiplying and dividing for Year 3 and area and perimeter for Year 4. Remember you can also look at any units for older or younger children to find the right level of challenge for you!

 

 

 

 

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?

 

Scratch

Have some fun using Scratch again.  Try the tutorial called Create a Story. See what you can build and which effects you can use.

 

Time to talk

Talk to members of your family about great places to visit in the Norfolk Broads. What can you do there? What is there to see? Think about buildings, wildlife, countryside, activities, shops and cafes. When we are able to visit places more easily, where would be a good place in the Broads to take a trip to?

 

 

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 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.

 

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

Riddle: You can see me in water but I never get wet. What am I?

Answer:    Your reflection   

Monday’s riddle:

 

I will post the answer on Tuesday.
