Living and Learning/PE
This week, our Living and Learning statement is ‘I can make healthy choices’. Yesterday, we thought about healthy eating.
Today, we are going to make healthy choices by doing some exercise. Are you managing to get 60 minutes exercise each day? How are you doing this? Why is this important?
Here are some links to have fun and get moving today and everyday. I would love it of you could email me a photo of you doing some exercise, a piece of writing or a poster to explain the benefits of exercise.

Choose some of the subtraction calculations from above and make up a word problem like the one below.
What are syllables?
Watch this short video and try the clapping game.
Now get moving with super movers whilst learning about syllables.
Challenge : Clap how many syllables are in the names of each person in your family. Write down the names showing how many syllables there are.

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.
- Healthy eating – Change4Life, British Nutrition Foundation Healthy Eating week, Food a fact of life
- Physical health – Government guidelines recommend at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, get active with National School Sports Week resources, imovement, ThisisPE, GoNoodle
- Mental health (including reducing screen time) – Tips for reducing screen time, Anna Freud centre, MindMate, Childline calm zone, listen to meditations, try yoga, look at our suggested mindfulness techniques
- Sleep – Good-Night Guide For Children, Top tips to help children sleep well
- Teeth – Keeping our teeth healthy
- Hygiene – e-bug KS1, e-bug KS2, hand washing
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.
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.

Home learning: 26 June 2020
Good morning, Year 3 and 4.
It’s Friday – well done for completing another week of home learning.
Here are the answers to yesterday’s learning.
It’s challenge Friday – have a go at these challenges on BBC bitesize.
How did you do with the reading task yesterday? Here are the questions Joe wrote for his retrieval work. Can you answer any of them?
- Why did the character wish he’d worn jeans?
- Give me 2 reasons why it was so noisy?
- What did Emily plan to do later?
- What danced silently in the shaft of sunlight?
- Were the water lilies pink, green, or white?
- The main character was really into ponds? True or false.
In today’s task, we are going to answer these RIC questions based on this video about R L Stine, the author of the ‘Goosebumps’ books. The first question will be an opportunity to test the retrieval skills that you have been working on this week but in a slightly different way. Just like with a text, the answers to this retrieval question can be found in the video. We hope you enjoy getting to see and hear from the man who wrote the texts that we’ve been reading over the course of this week. Here is your reading video of Mrs Welsby explaining today’s learning.
In this lesson, we will recap our knowledge from last week and we will build on our knowledge by learning the days of the week. We can then use this, as well as our previous knowledge of months and numbers, to say the date in Spanish! For this lesson, you will need some paper and a pen or pencil to write down your new vocabulary.
