Home learning activity – Tuesday 24th March 2020
Good morning Year 3 and 4! We hope you’re keeping busy at home and enjoying the change of scenery!
Here are your activities to try and complete today:
Think about the end of the story ‘Escape from Pompeii.’ Tranio and Livia were rescued by a Greek fisherman. Can you write the story of what happened to them when they left Pompeii? Think about how they might have been feeling as they were only children and they left without their families.
If you can’t remember what happened in the story, here is a clip of it being read!
Spelling: Choose 10 words from the Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list to practise. You can continue to use Spelling Shed.
Create a time table of your day at home. Can you write the times of each activity? How long does each activity last?
9.00 am – 10.00 am - PE with Joe Wicks on You tube – 60 minutes (1 hour)
10.00 – 10.30 – break time – 30 minutes
10.30 – 11.30 – maths activities – 60 minutes (1 hour)
Year 4 challenge: Can you work out how long your activities last in total? How long is this in hours and minutes?
Don’t forget to keep working on your project activity! Check out Monday 23rd March if you need a reminder
Home learning activity – Monday 23rd March 2020
Good morning Year 3 and 4! We know you’re excited to get started with your home learning! We are sure your grown-ups will be as impressed with your attitude to learning as we are. Here are your activities to try and complete today:
English: Look at the two pictures from the story ‘Escape from Pompeii.’ What are the characters saying? How do they feel? How are the two pictures the same? How are they different? Make sure you explain your answers fully in complete sentences.
Maths: Time (o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to)
Telling the time on an analogue clock can be tricky. Sometimes it can be easier to learn the time by introducing one hand at a time. Make your own clock from card or paper and try telling the time to o’clock and half past, using only the hour hand.
Link to video on telling the time to o’clock and half past: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V32tRiEQ2AA&t
Once you are confident with o’clock and half past, have a go at quarter past and quarter to.

Try converting different times from analogue to digital and from digital to analogue.

4MW are a mixed class of Year 3 and Year 4 children. Our teachers are Miss Wilkinson and Mrs March and our teaching assistants in Year 3 and 4 are Mrs Clarke and Miss Kennedy. We like to get up to all kinds of things in 4MW and we are really enjoying our recent topic, exploring our local area. So far this term we have really enjoyed PE with Mr. Yates, in his sessions we have been doing TAG rugby. We have also taken part in a 'Drumba session' and we will experience more of this in the new year! It has been great learning with Miss Milner during this term, who is a student teacher, on placement at Jacksdale Primary.
In 4MW we are always thinking about our school rules - Kind Respect and Safe and we like to spot these rules in action.
We hope you like the class page as it continues to develop throughout the year!
