Home Learning

Hi everyone,
We will be updating this page daily with activities and guidance for maths and English and weekly for the other subjects. As always we thank you for your continued support. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding any questions you may have. We are responsible for home learning and taking care of key workers' children, therefore, you may not have a response instantly. Please respect that we have families too and will only respond during the hours of 9-4. 
Hi year 3, hopefully you have all had a nice half term and enjoyed some of the lovely weather. For the next few weeks of English you will have a mix of activities to complete, there will be a warm up challenge on a Monday, some talk for writing tasks on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and a poem to explore on a Friday. Remember, if you need any help, you can contact me via email alex.watson@ntlp.org.uk
Year 4 English
Hi Year 4,
Over the next 3 weeks you will have a 'Talk for writing' booklet to work through. We have dated each piece of work. Try to complete a little bit each day.  If you have any questions please email us.
Wednesday 3rd June
Today we've got a comprehension task for you.  Can you find the answers in the text you read on Monday?  Could you challenge yourself to think of your own comprehension questions using the text?  
Year 3
For the next 4 weeks we are going to be looking at fractions. This is something that your child will have covered in Y2, however, we have not yet touched upon it in Y3. White Rose have an amazing scheme of learning available that we are going to follow for the next 4 weeks. They provide daily videos which explain the skills needed to complete the activity. Unfortunately, I can't download the videos and upload to the website, however I can direct you to the right place. Please follow the link below. It should take you to a Y3 Home Learning page. If you then click under 'Week 1' you will be able to see 5 videos, one for Monday-Friday, which will link directly to the worksheet that I am uploading for that day. If you have any issues please send me an email: becky.cowen@ntlp.org.uk 
Please note, that as of next week, I will be back in school so replies may not be imminent. 
We are continuing with our exploration of Hinduism in the final half term of the year, focusing on Hinduism worship.
For the last half term year 3 and 4 will be looking at the environment. Covering issues which affect the environment, fair trade and  recycling. There will be different tasks for children to complete and ideas to discuss.

Create your own algorithms (set of precise instructions) to control the sprite (character) in scratch. It’s easy to start, just follow the instructions. Then when you feel confident, you can create pretty much anything. Year 4s and 3/4 AW you have already had a try at school, everyone else just have a go and follow the tutorial!
Here are some ideas to keep active during these weeks at home. See how many you can complete each week. 
  • Joe Wick's daily PE lessons at 9am are easy to follow via You Tube.  He's even asked Prince William and Kate to join him this week. youtube.com   PE with Joe.
  • For our Year 3/4 Strictly fans: Oti Mabuse has been providing dance classes every day at 11.30 am on her Instagram page but  you can access the saved classes on Oti's You tube channel.
Times Tables
Year 3 should be working on 3, 4 and 8 times tables. 
Year 4 should know all times tables up to 12.
Please visit Top Marks for fun times table games - www.topmarks.co.uk
Do not forget to challenge yourself on www.mathsframe.co.uk 
Year 4 children - keep the time at 6 seconds- I know you can do it. 
Year 3 - you can change the time to 10 seconds and change the times tables to: 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8s.

Hi to all our fantastic Year 4 Dancers.  We are really missing our dance rehearsals and promise as soon as we are all back to school, we will organise how to share your amazing effort.  
We have uploaded a picture below of the first draft of your dance costumes, with the help of Tiffany.   However, we do need a group name instead of Year 4 Dancers. Do you have any ideas?  If you do, email them to sam.taylor@ntlp.org.
