29 June 2020: Home learning

Sunday 28 June 2020

Good morning, all. This week, in school, we would have been enjoying one of our themed weeks, Being happy and healthy. Despite this, and as it is now even more important to look after our own physical and mental health, we’d like to share some ideas to look at the theme of being happy and healthy at home.  Start by watching this clip from BBC Bitesize and reading these top ten tips for families to keep healthy and happy at home.

Can you encourage your child to make a new healthy choice every day this week? Or think about one new healthy change your child can make? Try to help them make sure the choice is a realistic, achievable one, such as avoiding being on an electronic device after a certain time to help sleep, or adding one extra daily portion of vegetables to their diet each day.
Here are some links to support you with this learning at home which may be as well as or instead of some of your child’s home learning for this week.


Year 3: In this BBC Bitesize lesson, you will learn how to add three-digit numbers together. You don’t need to print the worksheets if you don’t want to – write the calculations in your books. Be careful to line the columns up correctly.

Year 4: We are focusing on fractions this week. Here is your video lesson ,led by Mrs Alloway from Scholes, and worksheet. You can mark your work using the answers.

Reading: Our text this week is about social distancing. Here’s the video and text.

Art: Today we are focusing on shading and will be practising our techniques. Here is the worksheet and the lesson link. (You don’t have to print the sheet; if you wish you can draw straight into your home learning book.) I found this activity to be really relaxing – I hope you do, too! 

Spellings: For spellings this week, I would like you to practise words from the Y3/4 word list. You can use the handwriting sheet or any other method that will help you to remember these spellings.
