Working from home

Jump Back July

Our topic this half term - Road Trip USA.

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities.

Have a look at this website which has lots and lots of websites for you to try out. There are websites on robotics, coding, computing and space as well as activities from the RSPB, Eden Project and Raspberry Pi.

Famous British artist David Hockney has released some new paintings that he has created using his i-pad. I have copied the pictures onto 3 powerpoints for you to look at. Why not have a go at looking at his pictures and his style of drawing as well as the colours he uses. You could then create your own artwork using his drawings as a starting point. If you have an i-pad and a drawing app, try to create your own Hockney art work. Or if not, use paints, felts or coloured pencils to create your own masterpiece.

RE reflections while working from home.

All schools will be closing from the end of the school day on Friday 20th March 2020. Therefore children will be working from home during the extended break. We will be allocating work to the children for them to complete at home. Children can complete the work on the worksheets provided as well as any additional pages they want to include. The children have a paper copy of the work which is now on the pages below. Answers will be added in ten days to allow children to complete as much as they can. Additional work will then be allocated for the children to complete.


Try to stick to some sort of routine with regards to working from home. Select the best time of day to suit you and use this time each day to do the work. Don't forget that TT Rockstars is also available to use each day for short 10-15 minute intervals as well as reading at home. We have included information on how to access books online from the library and Oxford Owl. Read each day and now is a great time to read as many of the '50 books to read before you leave year 4' we looked at on World Book Day.


Year 3 and 4 have a list of spellings that we have been learning this year. I have included a copy of this list on your working from home page. Spend a short while each week going over the words you find difficult to spell and ask someone at home to test you on 10 words each week. You could also put these into sentences using prepositions, adjectives, speech or noun phrases as well as the correct punctuation.


As a Church School we suggest that we spend time reading about and thinking about our Christian faith. Although Churches are closed for regular Services, they will be open for quiet personal reflection time that families can access during the day. In addition, read stories from the Bible as part of your reading time.


It is important to keep active over the extended break although we may spend long periods at home. See if you complete the daily mile each day as well as going on Go Noodle for fun dance and active activities. Perhaps you can get people at home to join in with you!


I will keep adding to the pages over the break as well as sending out messages on Parenthub.


Keep safe and be positive at this difficult time. It will change. Remember to think about others in our community and keep them in your prayers.
