Good morning Chestnut Class!


I hope you had a lovely weekend with your families and managed to keep busy and active. It was rather breezy and we even had some sleet.


Here are your learning activities for Monday.


Let me know how you get on. Your parents and carers can email me with photos of your work and I can share it in our gallery.


Active time

Choose a physical activity that you will enjoy. This might be:

  • Daily workouts with Joe Wicks (on youtube)
  • Dance class with Oti Mabuse at 11.30  (you’ll have to ask an adult to access it on Facebook for you).
  • 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 5 minutes? Can you continue without walking?




Start a diary in your English book to record some of the things you have been doing at home. I’d love to know about any new skills you have learned or games you have played with your families. Try to write a paragraph about your first week of home learning.



Remember to read as much as you can while you are at home. You can choose all sorts of books. There are also plenty to choose from on Bug Club. If you need different books on there, I can change them for you if your parents email me.

You might like to use the back of your English home book as a reading record, to note down the book you are reading, the pages you read each day, and to make a comment about the story or book.

At 11am, David Walliams is reading a new story from the World’s Worst Children that you can listen to. There is a link in the resources section so that you can find it easily.



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. 



1. Telling the time

This week, I would like you to learn and practise how to tell the time using an analogue clock, as well as a digital clock.

Today, work with an adult to make sure you can read o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to. In the Resources section and below this message, there is a PowerPoint which helps to explain how to read a clock.

I have also put a virtual clock at the bottom of our main page which you can use to practise with. 


2. Calculations

In your green maths book, practise doing some extended column addition. Remember how we set out work carefully, using the boxes to have all the hundreds, tens and ones in correct columns. Add the ones first, then the tens, then the hundreds, then thousands if you are feeling very confident.

You can see the maths methods PowerPoint on the main page if you need reminding how to do this.

Aim to complete 5 or more. Self-check or ask an adult to help you using a calculator. You can send a photo showing me how you got on if you like!


Two digit:

45 + 32 =              23 + 25 =          61 + 26             56 + 37 = 

66 + 39 =              72+ 84 =


Three digit:

231 + 432 =          125 + 243=               346 + 322 =      467 + 465 =

832 + 467 =          853 + 596 =


Four digit:

3213 + 2314 =       2442 + 2144 =  3424 + 4323 = 

4357 + 6587 =


3. Times tables

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.



Have you finished your Egyptian poster? If so, you can ask your parents to take a photo of it and email it to me. Then we can share some of our work online.  Don’t worry if you have not finished it yet- but we would love to see it when you have completed it.


Easter is coming! At the moment, Christians are taking part in Lent, where they give up something nice in the 40 days before Easter. I am putting some information and activities to do with Lent below. You can read them online or print them if possible. There is a powerpoint to read at the bottom of this page, and a question activity sheet as well.

You can complete the written task in your English book or print the sheet to write on if you prefer.


Have a lovely Monday at Home School!
