Hello Y3/4!

We hope that home learning is going well and that you are enjoying some of the learning tasks. We cannot wait to see you again soon and hear all about the learning you have undertaken. This week's (6th July) home learning is below. Please try to work through as best you can and complete some each day. The more effort and hard work you put in now, the easier you will find coming back to school and the easier the new learning will be!

Have a fantastic week!

This week in English the focus is on diary writing, very similar to last week. We know that in school this year you have written a diary entry as Boudica (the fierce warrior queen) and they were outstanding pieces of work! Your task is to click on this link.      


1. Watch the video about 'Grace Darling', the heroic young girl who risked her life to save others. The clip

    begins by giving you some information about who she was and her life. It then goes on to describe the

    event that you will write about.

2. As you watch the clip, make bullet point notes about the parts where she describes that awful night and

    how she is feeling (her emotions) and also what she is describing (the scenery)


For example:         * crashing waves, howling wind *


3. When you have made enough notes, read them through and make sure you are happy. Your notes will help

     you to write the diary. 

4. Remember the checklist of a diary entry. How does a diary always start? What person do you need to

    write in? What about vocabulary choices? Below, I have attached a checklist for you to use as you write

    your own diary. 

5. Using the checklist, begin to write your own diary AS GRACE DARLING. You need to pretend that you are

   her. You are the heroic young person who saved those lives, what happened? How did you feel? What did

    you do?

6. When you think you have finished, don' forget to read it through. Always check your work and correct any

Even though you've been working from home and using technology for a few weeks now, we thought it would be good to have a focused ICT lesson. We've done a lot of work this year on Purple Mash and we did a lot of learning about coding and setting computer codes. 


Your task this week is to programme the guard outside the castle. You will be able to add different characters in and programme each character to do specific actions that you choose. Take your time and when you are happy with your design, make sure you save your work so your teacher can read it and mark it. 


Click here to get started with computer coding! 



Let's try your investigation skills a little more - here's an experiment to try out.  Take a look at the powerpoint about investigating how big shadows are (identical PDF if you can't open it) .


Spend some time using the investigation frame and  try to find out how you can make shadows change.

Also use the results writing frame to record what you've learned.


The sheets show which difficulty you can try (shown by the 1, 2 or 3 stars - 3 being the hardest) remember, you only need to do one of them.
