We’ve made it to Day 2.
I hope you have all enjoyed your first day of home learning. PE with Joe was great yesterday. I hope you all enjoyed the workout. If you have not checked it out yet, make sure you do as it is so much fun!
I have uploaded some handwriting/spelling resources. It includes the Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list, along with another list of words we use every day called High Frequency Words or HFW spelling list. You do not have to use the spelling and the handwriting resources together but it works well using both together. The best thing to do is to only choose about 5 or 6 spellings at any one time and focus on those until they are learned rather than trying to learn too many at once. This activity can be repeated daily and will work best if it is carried out little and often. Please see the handwriting workout too. This warms up the muscles in your fingers, hands and arms to allow you to be ready for writing.
This year you have all made fantastic progress at learning your times tables. To keep this up you can use the following site. (https://www.timestables.co.uk/multiplication-tables-check/)
Mental maths Train
Mental Maths Train is a maths game which focuses on the essential vocabulary of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It can help children to understand what type of calculation they have to do when faced with word problems.
It is a multiple choice game that is suitable for children from 5 to 11 years of age. Mental Maths Train is also good for consolidation of times tables knowledge.
Keep going with Bug Club. I have updated everyone’s Bug Club account. Your login details are in the front of your home and school contact books on page, Wc 30th September 2019. I will be allocating activities on Bug Club for you to complete over the next while.
On the front of the learning packs received towards the end of the week, there was a username and password for a resource called ‘Discovery Education’. On Discover Education you will find lots of different resources to support your child’s learning. Check out the section ‘Espresso’ – ‘KS2’.
I hope you have been able to log into Discovery Education. Today, I would like you to do the following activity.
Once in the section KS2, please go to ‘English’ – ‘Grammar and Punctuation’ – Word – Using Standard English verb forms – Under Standard English verb forms, you will see a video screen icon. You will need to click on it to watch it (it can be watched again and again). Once the video clip has been watched, you can then attempt the quizzes and activity.
Have fun learning and happy exploring….
‘PE with Joe’ is a live PE work out session which will run Monday to Friday at 9am. This will be broadcast on Joe Wicks’ YouTube channel ‘The Body Coach’ Please check it out. A great way to start the day!
