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


Whole class reader– We are going to start our new book - The Boy Who Grew Dragons.  This is a really engaging book and I look forward to using sharing it in the live session on Tuesday!


Spellings– This week we will be revising some of the words from the Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list.


Grammar– This week we will focus on differentiating between direct and indirect speech.   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 with a focus on poetry.  We will be reading poetry and having a go at our own. We will also have a session on editing and improving work.


Maths– We will be multiplying and dividing by 6, 9 and 7.  You will receive the link to a recorded lesson OR a powerpoint,  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.  They will correlate to the skills you are working on in your main maths lesson.


Science– Using the Oak Academy teaching videos and quiz, we will be starting to learn about sound.


RE – Ordinarily, we would be doing the unit on Salvation, but this term’s work has been adapted by the Diocese of Rochester so it can be accessed more easily for those learning at home.  We will be beginning a new unit on Humanism.  


Topic- We will be finding out about human rights and how they protect people.


ICT– I have set keyboard skills activities on Purple Mash for you to complete in your scheduled session on Thursday


PE- This week we will be focusing on target accuracy
