The document below contains a wide range of bible readings - linking to the liturgical seasons of Lent and Easter. There are questions at the end of each reading to support discussion and understanding of what they have read.

Remember to say your prayers every day and pray for people who are poorly, aswell as asking St Joseph to protect our families, friends and school community. 

You could write some of these prayers in your exercise book if you like.

 

Reading

You should all have school Reading books and library books to be reading at home. Please make sure you are reading every day! Bug club are accepting previously used usernames and passwords to access their online books. 

 

Spelling

Continue to work through the Statutory word list for Years 3 and 4.

  • Choose five words at a time from the year 3/4 list.
    Discuss their meanings and how pupils might remember them. e.g. mnemonics (big elephants can always understand small elephants = because)

    Pupils use one of the strategies already taught to learn these words:
    • Identifying the tricky part of the word
    • Pyramid words
    •  Trace, copy, replicate
    •  Look, say, cover, write, check
    • Drawing around the word to show the shape.

PE

  • The body coach (Joe Wicks) is doing a daily PE lesson for children on his Youtube channel (free to subscribe), Monday-Friday at 9am. He also has lots of workouts for kids on there too.  

 

Times Tables

This is a really good opportunity for children to get to grips with all the times tables. 

The BBC supermovers website https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers has a great range of times tables songs as well as lots of other active learning lessons. Well worth a look! 

We have set MyMaths tasks for the children at their current level, which they should all be able to access. Please work through the online lessons for each task before completing the homework task. There are also times tables resources on there.
