Term 3 Week 4 - overview


Welcome to week 4 of our home learning provision.

It was so lovely to see many faces at online assemblies and the story session we had last Thursday.  In addition, this week we have a live session Mr Mackinnon has kindly arranged for us.  You will have received a parentpay message with all the information on this, but I add it here as a reminder:


Tuesday 26th January- 11am- Holocaust Memorial Foundation Workshop.


To help mark Holocaust Memorial Day, we will take part in a live session to find out how we can take part in a hands on activity provided by the Holocaust Memorial Foundation Project and help create a long lasting and tangible memorial for those who lost their lives in the Holocaust. In this session, we will discuss the events surrounding the Holocaust in an age appropriate fashion. However, if you would like to check out the resources and information we will be sharing in advance please follow this link:


If you feel that this session is not suitable for your child, please note that this session is not compulsory. At the end of the session, your child will be invited to take part in the Foundation Stone Project.


Your learning this week will include:

Independent reading – 30 minutes per day and recorded in your yellow reading record.


Whole class reader – The Iron Man.  This week we will be reading chapter 4 and answering comprehension questions about it.  At the end of Chapter 3, everything seemed resolved, and yet there are two more chapters to go….

I have again provided you with a pdf of the chapter and have highlighted the first word for each page of the original text.  I have also added the page number.  This will help when you answer the questions that refer to specific page numbers in the book I am using (faber and faber).

You might also want to listen to the chapter being read, following this link:


Spellings – we will focus on words containing the spelling ei, eigh and ey.  This is revising some sessions we have already had in school.  I will provide you with a link to the site Spellzone and you will also have some flash cards and definition sheets to help you learn and practise these words.


Grammar – This week we will be revisiting using an apostrophe for possession or contraction.   I will as usual upload a powerpoint and sheets for Tuesday and Thursday  Please remember that while I have to upload a set of 3 sheets, I do not expect you to do all 3.  We would usually do sheet 2 in class but you may feel you want to challenge yourself further!


English – We will continue with the Goblinology booklet looking at bossy verbs, time adverbials and a set of instructions.


Maths – We are moving on to a new unit on multiplication and division.  We will be beginning with multiplying and dividing by 10 and 100.  You will receive the link to a recorded lesson and the worksheets and answer sheets will be uploaded to the blog each day.


Maths fluency – I will continue to set math fluency activities which will mostly be practising times tables using a variety of platforms and activities.


Science – Using the Oak Academy teaching videos and quiz, we will be learning about what changes of state are and why they take place.


RE – We will be learning the story of the Good Samaritan and reflecting on the calling of the disciples and the Healing of the Leper.  We will then think again about our Big Question:  What kind of world did Jesus want?


Topic – This week we will be thinking about what it means to be part of a community and what our roles, rights and responsibilities are.


D&T - This links to your English work in which you will design a Goblin trap.  For your D&T session, I would like you to make it!


ICT – I will set a keyboard skills activity on Purple Mash for you to complete in your scheduled session on Thursday
