Home Learning Wb 20/4/20

I hope you are all managing to relax a little and enjoy some of the lovely weather. I know it is a difficult time and I would love to know what you have all been getting up to. Please feel free to send me a message to taylor.j@shawburystmarys.co.uk to let me know how you are getting on.

I have set lots of activities on Education City that the children can have a go at.

There are so many useful websites and free activities that have been created for this difficult period. Here are the links to some of them:

Topic:
We would have been starting the topic ‘The Mayans’ this term. The Maya tribes were discovered in Central America around 4000 years ago and introduced exciting things like writing, chocolate and football to the modern world. I have attached a Mayan activity grid with tasks that link to the topic and other areas of the curriculum. The children could choose 1 or two to complete each week.

Maths:
We use White Rose maths in school.The children could choose some activities to complete from the the White Rose website or Education City.
The children have been learning the rolling numbers songs to learn their times tables – here is the link for them to practice https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jf2BHuSbt_Y

Literacy and Reading:
I would encourage the children to continue to read as much as possible. David Walliams is also providing free daily audio stories https://bit.ly/AudioElevenses . There are lots of Literacy activities on Education City and on the Mayan activity grid. Perhaps this week the children could research and practice the Mayan’s writing system?
Spelling:
I have attached the Year 3/4 Spelling word list. The children could choose a few to learn and practice each week.
Word list 2

Science:
Our summer science topic is plants. Could the children identify, draw and label any plants from their garden?

PE:Joe Wicks PE sessions: Monday – Friday

I hope this is helpful and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
