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?

  1. Why did the character wish he’d worn jeans?
  2. Give me 2 reasons why it was so noisy?
  3. What did Emily plan to do later?
  4. What danced silently in the shaft of sunlight?
  5.  Were the water lilies pink, green, or white?
  6.  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.
