I hope you’ve all had a lovely half term in the beautiful sunshine. It really has been glorious. At the moment, Year 4 and Year 5 are still continuing home learning, although this will look slightly different for this half term. On this Owl’s page, there will be a key skills to practise – the really fundamentals which will help your progress across the curriculum. For ‘topic’ work, we have created a whole school ‘wonderful world of water‘ page which can be reached using this link, or be found on the home learning tab. This has been created to help families work together on one project, despite having different age children. It has also allowed us to spread the management of the home learning tasks and teaching across the members of our staff. I will be teaching a group in school this half term, so may not be setting all of the work or replying to all emails. I will check each week as love seeing what you’ve been up to and try to get back to you all at some point, but it might be another member of staff who replies regularly. Keep up the great work though – I have been so impressed with your commitment and enthusiasm, and sure you will continue in the same vein this half term.
Please e-mail pictures and work to email@example.com. Please don’t send anything you don’t give permission to be posted on the Owls page of the website.

Key skills to practice
Continue to practise your multiplication facts using Rock Star Maths, Hit the button and BBC Supermovers.
Here are the mental maths targets! Because you are all in different places, I’ve left this as a choose your own challenge. You might like to revisit some and see how quickly you can complete it with most answered accurate! I will put the tests on during the week so you have time to work on them.
For those progressing fast and want a challenge:
Year 4 – please follow the White Rose lessons for Summer Term W3 (4th May). This is all about multiplication and division which is such an important skill for progressing through KS2. There are short teaching videos to watch and worksheet/problems to solve on the left hand side of the video.
There are also some videos which might be useful on BBC daily lessons (5th May, 6th May and 11th May).
Year 5 – please follow the White Rose lessons for Summer Term W3 (4th May). These are also on multiplication and division which is such an important skill to master for Year 6. There are short teaching videos to watch and worksheet/problems to solve on the left hand side of the video.
There are also some videos which might be useful on BBC daily lessons (29th April, 30th April, 4th May and 5th May).
Continue to practise your spellings – look, cover, write, check! Also find the definitions using a dictionary and use accurately in good sentences. Click on the link below. I have included 4 week worth.
Please continue to read as much as possible. Discuss the story and the characters with an adult. If you and a friend choose the same book, you could always talk about in over the phone or on video chat. This is a good way to explore the characters and story line. These questions might be useful…
Have a go at these tense activities:
Now have a go at a writing activity using Pobble365. If you go to the top right hand corner on the page, there is small calendar icon which says ‘pick a day’. Click on any day and this will come up with a picture and story starter. Have a go at completing any day you’d like!
Please see our new whole school home learning project, ‘The Wonderfully Wet World of Water’.
Activities will be added Monday and Tuesday so keep a look out!!
