We would like to remind you to read every day and have a discussion about the text you have read.
Write a book review of a book you have read recently. Include a brief retelling of the story (plot) and tell describe some of the characters and the setting. Don’t forget to say why you liked it and who you would recommend it to. Use subheadings for each different section.
Y3 Learn to spell – ache, anchor, Christmas, school, choir, echo
Y2 Learn to spell - can’t, doesn’t, they’re, couldn’t wasn’t, won’t
1 Find 15 of something (buttons, pencils, smarties…) Find 1/5 of the group, now find 3/5 and 5/5
- Make a list of fractions equal to 1 whole.
- 2/5 + 3/5 =
- 4/7 + 3/7 =
5.1/4 + 3/4 =
- I have one pizza cut up into 6 equal pieces. I have eaten 6/6 of the pizza. Do I have any pizza left? Explain your answer
If you have access to a printer: worksheet
1 Take a square (or a bar of chocolate!) and split it into equal parts. Tell someone how you know they are all equal.
- Find 12 of something (buttons, pencils, bottle tops…) How many different ways can you put these into equal groups?
IF SOMETHING IS SPLIT INTO 2 EQUAL PARTS, EACH PART IS A HALF. THIS CAN BE WRITTEN AS ½. THE NUMBERS REPRESENT 1 OUT OF 2 EQUAL PARTS.
- Draw some pictures to show ½
- Would you still be able to show ½ of a shape if it was split into 4 equal parts? Try it with a square.

To investigate uses for magnets.
Which materials do you think are magnetic? Make a list.
Find examples of different materials and see if they are magnetic by using a magnet against the material to see if there is a force (either attraction or repulsion).
If the force is repulsion (pushing it away), the material is not magnetic. If the force is attraction (pulling it towards), the material is magnetic.
Create a poster to show what you have found out.
Choose a view from one of the windows in your house. Can you identify the horizon?
Using the softest lead pencil you can find, try to sketch the view. Pay attention to light and shade and use the pencil to create this effect.
Create a repeating clapping pattern. Find an old pan and a wooden spoon and play the pattern on that.
Now choose some symbols to use and try to write the pattern down as music for someone else to play. How can you show long/short beats? What about loud and soft?
Log into Charanga and have a go at some of the activities there.
Based on what you have found out about Dorrington, design your ideal village. What must it include – why?
(Try to include physical and human features: shops, housing (what type?), leisure facilities, water, industry?)
Draw it as a map. Include a key and compass points.
If you are feeling really adventurous, try to recreate it as a 3D model using bits of junk material from around your house. Have a go at painting it too!
Try to find out about Mary Anning. Why is she famous?
Create an information booklet about Mary Anning.
Include a section on fossils and how they are formed.
If you have access to the internet, log onto scratch.
Choose a background and a Sprite.
Make your Sprite move in at least two different directions. Make him say something - perhaps it could be a new fact that you have learned today.
If you do not have access then design your own Sprite. Think carefully – what does it look like? What size is it? Male or Female? Cut it out and draw a background to put him on. Move him around – what directions would you give him?
Try to keep as active a possible!
Can you do these activities at least 5 times a day.
1 minute of toe touches
1 minute of air punches
1 minute of burpees
1 minute of bunny hops
1 minute of running on the spot
If you have access to the internet, try doing one of Joe Wicks’ PE Lessons on YouTube
It will soon be Easter! Christians see this as a time of hope. What are your hopes for yourself, your family and the wider world at the moment?
Create an Easter garden from things you can find in your own garden. Start with a bowl full of earth. Add some crosses, an empty tomb and some moss/foliage/flowers. Use it to retell the story of Easter.
(If you need ideas have a look on Google)
What makes a good friend?
Brainstorm some ideas, then write a set of instructions for others.
Practise counting. Use a clock face – O’clock is ‘heure’
1 o’clock is une heures
2 o’clock is deux heures,
Can you say every o’clock up to 12 o’clock?
