Home Learning Plans

Chestnut Class

Week Beginning: 20th April


Dear Chestnut parents/carers and children,

Your core learning for the week is set out in this letter. 

Reading: Read Chapter 18 of Varjak Paw, which is provided for you.  There are also some questions to answer.  See if you can follow the pattern we have adopted of reading and re-reading before answering the questions. 

Please also make sure you are carrying out additional reading each day.  You could use the grid below to explain what you are reading to an adult. 

Oxford Owls-   This website provides access to free reading material.  You will need to use the log on: chestnut101 and the password: pupil

Spelling - Please log onto Purple Mash and complete the spelling 2DO.  Continue to practise these words as you would in class, using a range of strategies such as pyramid words.  You have also been set 2 grammar activities(Purple Mash) - these are on fronted adverbials and synonyms.

Writing - We are beginning a topic on the Anglo Saxons in Britain.  Your writing task this week is to create a diary entry for an Anglo Saxon child.  I have provided you with information but you may wish to carry out some more research.  I do recommend BBC Bitesize for this.  Also included is a checklist to remind you of the key features of diary writing. 


I have provided 3 sheets: multiplication codebreakers and 2 on fractions.

You also have 4 tasks set on the website Mathswithparents.  You will need to log on using the Chestnut Class code: 946434

Number Fluency:  There are  tasks set on MyMaths.  In addition, you can use Purple Mash to practise times tables fluency.

Wider Curriculum:

Wider curriculum activities should be selected from the matrix you have also been sent.  The matrix provides a fortnight of activities.

I hope you are all well,

Mrs Barter
