A message from Ms Morgan.
Hello to my lovely, lovely class. I miss you all so much and I'm really looking forward to being with you all again when we get back to school. Until then, I want you to know that I think about each and every one of you every single day. I wonder what you are up to and how you are learning at home. I really miss teaching you; it's what I love to do, especially history! On this page every day I will leave something that I would like you to do so that you keep on learning because knowledge is the most powerful thing in the world next to love.
Have fun everyone, stay at home and keep learning.
A message from Miss Hindmarch
Hi year 3/4. I just wanted to say hello as I am missing seeing your lovely, smiling faces. I hope you are trying your best with your work at home and showing your grown ups how absolutely amazing you are. It’s was lovely to speak to you and your parents last week and I’m looking forward to doing it again next week. I’ve been trying to make the most of this gorgeous, sunny weather. I’ve been running - training for the Great North Run and also because I’ve been eating too much chocolate!! I’ve also been going for walks with my daughter, Emma, and exploring the woods next to my house. Keep working hard, have fun and, most importantly, stay safe. 🌈. See you all soon ❤️xxx

COMING SOON ... this week, I will be recording myself reading our class reader - The Creakers- so that we can find out what happens in the end. Check out this page to find out how to view it on Tuesday 2nd June.
Monday 1st June 2020
Welcome back! I hope that you all had the most wonderful half term holiday and were able to enjoy some sunshine.
Today in English, we are thinking about a lucky escape! Remember that you do not need to print anything out, just write doen everything you need on a piece of paper.
In maths, we are thinking about fractions. If you have a printer, great. If not, copy down anything you need and complete your work.
You've made it to half term! What a surreal time it has been but we have loved looking at all of your home learning photos over the last few weeks! It really does put smiles on our faces. As it's half term, we will not be setting any home learning tasks. We want you to rest, spend time with your family and make more memories during lockdown! In addition to this, we will not be speaking to parents next week and will continue making calls home week commencing 1st June. As you all know, we love making these phone calls to check to see how you and your family are so we'll look forward to speaking to you all again soon! We hope you have a fabulous half term! Keep safe and continue smiling!
To our Muslim families: Eid is a day of sharing and caring for others. May you have a wonderful Eid this year!
Keep sending in photos of what you've been up to and I will see you on 1st June.
Thursday 21st May 2020
I hope you have all been enjoying the sunshine! Following on from yesterday's work, I would like you to design your own Faberge egg! What will it be made from, what makes it eggstra special? If you have glue and materials, you could even hard boil an egg and make your own!
In Maths, you need to be a code breaker. Can you break the emoji code to fins the correct answers?
Wednesday 20th May 2020
Today, we are learning all about Faberge eggs, the most expensive Easter eggs in the whole wide world! Read the text, find out the meaning of the words and answer the reading comprehension questions. You may be surprised what you find out!
In maths, I have a game for you to play. Copy the grid and see if you can colour all of the squares!
Monday 18th May and Tuesday 19th May 2020
Happy Monday everyone!
For Monday and Tuesday's work this week I would like to to write an amazing ridiculous story for a competition! Have you read the one about the GANGSTA BOGEY? Or the SINGING BISCUIT? What about the CLUMSY WIZARD or the FORGETFUL CHEF? No? Well, today could be your lucky day! You have two days to give you lots of time to think, plan write an illustrate your story.
Friday 15th May 2020
I do love Fridays! If you have finished your story, a very big well done. If not, finish it today and send it to me. Some of you have been doing lots of work on Reading Eggs and today I would like you to do some spelling lessons. Just Log in and they will be waiting for you.
If you haven't already completed them, there is and RE and History challenge in Wednesday's work.
Art. Draw some food! It could be an apple, a packet of cornflakes, a kit-kat, anything at all but remember our golden rule? Draw what you see, not what you think you see - look carefully!
Have a lovely weekend everyone.
Thursday 14th May 2020
Hello everyone! As today is extended writing day, there is no maths because I want you to really take your time and write me an excellent story.
Step 1: Plan your story.
Please red the document about planning your story below before you do the plan. It really will help you to write a better story!
Step 2: Write your story.
Read the document about writing the story. For each paragraph, I have written a WAGOLL (what a good one looks like) to help you. Only write one paragraph at a time and keep referring back to the document to help you. If you do this, I promise you that your story will be amazing!
Step 3: Illustrate your story.
If you wish, you may leave gaps in your story to add illustrations.
I can't wait to read these stories!
RE and history tasks can be found in Wednesday's work.
Wednesday 13th May 2020
Today in English you will be planning your story and creating a character but don't write it yet! I want you to think hard about your character and create a great picture or model of it.
In maths, we are finishing our work on multiplying by 10. Don't forget to use the language of reasoning in your answers.
In RE we are thinking about how and why Muslims pray.
In history, I would like you to go to school in Victorian times by following this link
Tuesday 12th May 2020
Today is a little bit different because I want you to become teachers. If you were a teacher for a day, what would your perfect school day look like? How many lessons would you have? What would they be? How long would they be? What would you learn?
Create a timetable and tell me all about each lesson underneath it. Think about what materials you would need and you must have an OLI and an OLQ for each lesson.
For example: If I could do anything at all, I would have a dressing up/acting lesson. OLQ: Can I become a different character? In this lesson, children would try on/ create different costumes and them become that character and act in a mini play. To be successful, you would need to become at least 3 different people in a lesson.
Materials needed: Dressing up clothes, fabric, hats, props (umbrella, walking stick, crown etc) and a camera.
Monday 11th May 2020
Take a look at Declan's brilliant VE posters below and in the having fun section, Poonguzhale's artwork and Dylan's birthday celebrations!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend and that you celebrated VE day in style! My mum certainly did. She told me that even though she was only a little girl, she remembers VE day because there was a big party in the street with lots of cake! A kind neighbour took this photo of her.
In English today, I would like you to look at the picture of the family. How many questions can you think of to ask about the family and what they are doing? I wonder who will come up with the most questions?
Thursday 7th May 2020
Tomorrow is a very special holiday, commemorating 75 years since VE day (Victory in Europe) which was the beginning of the end of teh Second World War.
Your task is to find out about VE day celebrations and design a poster to let people know what is happening. If any VE celebrations are happening in your street or home then your poster could be about that, if not, you could design one for a make believe street party. Use your imaginations and send me photographs of your creativity!
Wednesday 5th May 2020
I am constantly amazed by the high standard of work that continues to be sent in. Well done to everyone!
In English today, you will find some assignments and a library book to read on Reading Eggs. You don't need to finish it all today but please do make a start.
In maths, we are still thinking about multiplying by 10 and the language of reasoning but today, the questions are a little more complex. Remember you need to answer showing both calculations and words.
Tuesday 5th May 2020
Good morning everyone, I hope that you are all safe and well and ready to learn!
Today in English, we are thinking about spelling and grammar (SPaG)
In maths, we are continuing to use the language of reasoning to answer questions. Remember that you need to use both maths and words to answer these questions. As yesterday was Star Wars day, I have a little Star Wars puzzle for you to solve as a starter.
Monday 4th May 2020.
Good morning everyone, well as you can tell, I am a bit of a Star Wars fan, I was about your age when the first film came out and it really captured my imagination. What's your favourite film/tv show and why?
The TTRS battle against the teachers has ended. 10 children from Year 3/4 children joined in and Wasi led the charge to a great victory! The final score was Teachers: 25,055 Children: 37,778. Can you work out the difference? Wasi, once again was the whole school champion and a big thank you to Chevron, Lydia, Koray, Kinjal, Abdullah, Keerath, Declan, Dylan and Hamza for working so hard.
Today in English, we are looking at the meaning of some more words and doing a little reading comprehension.
Maths: Today's maths isn't difficult but in order you succeed, you need to be able to explain your answers using the language of reasoning. e.g.
Mrs Morgan's son, Jack thinks that 5 x 5 = 20. This can't be true because if I count in sets of 5, five times, the answer comes to 25.
Ms Morgan has 4 cats. She wants to give each cat 4 treats. She has bought a bag containing 20 treats and she says that will be enough. Is she correct? Prove it!
She is correct. I know this because she will need 4 x 4=16 treats to give each cat 4 teats, so she will have enough treats and have 4 left over.
Friday 1st May 2020
Welcome to May everyone.
I've just been onto TTRS to gain a few more points for the teachers because you are beating us! I don't know how this as happened as yesterday, the teachers were well in the lead. Shhh, don't tell the teachers, but I'm secretly very proud of you all.
In English, we are going to begin to explore that words that sound the same can have different meanings, for example here and hear, ate and eight. These words are called homophones.
You do not need to write today's homework down (it is in the document below) but discuss the answers with an adult if you can.
If you can think of any more homophones, write them down and send me a list. I wonder which one of you can find the most?
In maths, we are using our multiplication and division skills. Start with the ones at the top and if they are too easy, try the next set underneath.
Thursday 30th April 2020
Welcome to the last day of April, possibly the strangest month ever!
Today in English you have a story to read, make sure you read right to the end (there is a gap in the story) and answer the following questions:
1. What did you like about the story?
2. What surprised you?
3. What did it remind you of?
Also, would you like to challenge the teacher? Write me three comprehension questions that you would like me to answer!
In maths, can you become a true magician and invent your own magic square?
On TTRS more and more children are joining the battle and your teachers are getting worried! last night I counted 10 children from Year 3/4 and I was so proud. Come on my class, we are the best aren't we? Let's show the rest of the school how good we really are!
Wednesday 29th April 2020
Good morning everyone. Today's English is all about wishes when we start a new story and a new adventure. Take a look and tell me your wishes. In maths I have some magic squares for you to complete. Copy them out and see how far you get, they get harder as they go down ... could you challenge a parent or older brother or sister with a really hard one?
Our RE and science work is on Tuesday's page and my dear class, WASI is no 1 in the WHOLE SCHOOL in our TTRS battle with the teachers.His score is much higher than mine (how embarrassing) but he will need EVERYONE'S help to beat the teachers. If you're not sure of your TTRS Log In, email and I will send it to you.
Tuesday 28th April 2020
Good morning everyone! Today you have some RE to do, following on from last week. This term in science, we would have been learning about rocks have a look at the unit and see what you can find out.
For something different, take a look at https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom where there are lots of different subjects for you to explore.
Perhaps most importantly, this week, there has been a TTRS battle set up with ...THE TEACHERS! And guess what? The TEACHERS ARE WINNING! YAY! Of course we are, you can't beat us ... or can you?
Monday 27th April 2020
Today is challenge with your writing to see if you can write your own version of The Billy Goats Gruff story using expanded noun phrases. You can do it!
In maths, I would like you to to go onto Times Table Rock Stars. Don't let the other classes win!
Friday 24th April 2020
It's Friday! Today is big write day, time to talk about trolls and see how inventive you can be.
In maths, I would like you to to go onto Times Table Rock Stars and beat the pants off Year 5! Don't let them win!
Have a lovely weekend and Happy Ramadan to our Muslim friends.
Thursday 23rd April 2020
Wow, it's Thursday already! Today in English, you are going to create a troll, not the kind that is mean on the internet, but the type that lurks under bridges!
In maths, we are using our time skills to solve problems. As always, Y3 maths is first and Y4 second.
Also, this week's RE and science are here if you haven't already completed them.
Wednesday 22nd April 2020
Welcome to Wednesday everyone! Today in English, I have set you an assignment to complete in Reading Eggs.
In maths, we are going to solve problems involving time. As always, Year 3 work is first, followed by Year 4. Don't forget science and RE, which is below the maths, if you haven't already done it.
Please remember to go onto Times Table Rock Stars for our Battle of the Bands and show Year 5 that we are the superior mathematicians!
Tuesday 21st April 2020
Today's work is following on from yesterday's work, so if you haven't completed that, may I suggest that you go back and complete Monday's work first.
During the holiday, Year 3/4 beat the pants off Year 6B and year 5B battled with Year 6T and won, so now it's the battle of the winners Year 3/4M vs Y5B. Get onto TTRS and let everyone know that Year 3/4 are the best class in Key Stage 2!
Below, you will find today's English and maths for today and RE and science work for this week.
Remember, you can send in photos of whatever you're doing to email@example.com
Monday 20th April 2020
Welcome back to our virtual classroom everyone, I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and are raring to go!

Remember, you can send in photos of whatever you're doing to firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday 3rd April 2020
Good morning! Welcome to the last school day before your Easter break. I hope that you have enjoyed the tasks that I have set you so far and most importantly that you have learnt from them.
Today's task is a setting description as before, but this time I would like you to include adverbial sentence openers of time and manner. You already know how to use adverbials of place from yesterday; time and matter are much the same. Don't forget the comma after a fronted adverbial (an adverbial phrase that starts a sentence).
Adverbials of time:
Seconds became hours, as I stood mesmerised by the beauty of the landscape.
Tonight, was calm and peaceful.
Occasionally, a swift darted across the azure blue, cloudless sky.
At first, there was no one in sight and I found myself quite alone.
In the blink of an eye, she was gone.
Seconds ticked by,
Adverbials of manner explain how things are done:
Without a sound,
Thursday 2nd April 2020
Good morning everyone. This morning I have put some teddy bears in my window for young children to find when they are on their daily walk. Have you done this? If so send a photo and spread the happiness! Have any of you put rainbows in your windows too?
Today, we are going to write a setting description using adverbial phrases of place. Here are some examples:
Above my head, the stars seemed to smile at me.
Below me, I could see people hurrying about their daily lives.
In the distance, the mountain rose, dominating the sky.
In the classroom, the children worked diligently.
On top of his head, was a mop of thick, curly chestnut-brown hair.
Don't forget the comma at the end of the adverbial phrase. These are a great tool to vary sentence openers but don't use to many!
Wednesday 1st April 2020
Good morning! So far you have been inventors, explained how your invention works and advertised your product. Today, I would like you to:
1. Design the packaging for your product. Think- what will it look like on shop shelves or on Amazon?
2. Write the instructions to go in the box to tell the user how to assemble and use your product.
Instructions need to be
Think abut using bullet points/numbers.
Sentence openers should be varied - Time conjunctions, imperative verbs (bossy action words) and adverbs (words that describe verbs e.g quickly, carefully).
I am looking forward to seeing your work. Please send pictures to email@example.com
Don't forget that we are in a battle on TTRS with Mr Murtagh's class. Don't let him win!

Today's tasks include Times Table Rockstars and Reading Eggs. If you don't know your passwords, please email and I will get them to you.
I have set up a battle between us and Year 4 in TTRS. Please, please, please don't let Mr Murtagh win!
So far, you have invented and explained. Now your product is ready to hit the market! In order to do this, you need to advertise in newspapers and magazines. Today's task is to create an advert that really sells your product. We are going to use the language of persuasion.
Persuasive text often includes:
Useful Advert Words & Phrases
Monday 30th March 2020
Good morning everyone, here we go with another exciting school week
Could I please ask that you all spend time on Reading Eggs and Times Table Rock Stars every day. Reading is so important and times tables open up the world of maths, allowing you to perform calculations faster and with confidence. Challenge a friend to a battle!
Please do send any pictures of what you are up to, school work or not and I'll put them on our class page. email@example.com
If you completed Friday's work, then you are ready for today's challenge. If not, can I suggest that you go back and complete Friday's task first?
Today, I would like you to write an explanation text that explains how your invention works. It should have the features in the document below.
If you would like to, you can present your work as a double page spread, using text boxes and colour. If you are not sure how to do this, further down the page is a great example that Paul Glover made when a wrote a report earlier in the year.
Don't forget to add diagrams to explain how your invention works.
Don't forget to email me the pictures of you and your work, firstname.lastname@example.org, I'm so excited to see them!
Much love everyone
Ms M x
Wow! Just look at this amazing invention from today's work- a Cronavirus helper! Wasi, perhaps you have a future in engineering?
Friday 27th March 2020
Good morning everyone, today is my birthday (21 ) and I'm really excited to see some of your lovely work today.
At 10.00am Tony Ross will be reading a live story. Follow the link to join in the fun: http://www.facebook.com/7stories
Today, we are going to base our work on Wallace and Gromit's 'The Wrong Trousers'. You can watch the video online if you like.
Any great inventor starts with an idea and then draws a diagram, so today I want you to become an inventor! You can invent anything you want, it could be a self cleaning litter tray for cats (that's what I really want for my birthday!) or a machine that does your homework for you or a brand new type of video games console ... in fact, anything at all.
Design and sketch your invention, don't forget it needs a title and labels, so I can understand what all of the buttons and levers do. You could invent more than one thing if you like.
Think carefully: What will your invention be made of? What colours will you use? Who will use it? What is it used for?
Today, I would like you to have some fun solving problems.Go to
and find out how good you are at problem solving.
Keep working on Reading Eggs and TT Rock Stars too and don't forget to email me your work at email@example.com
and I'll give you a shout put on here! Let me know about anything at all that you've been up to, I miss you all!
Thursday 26th March 2020
Good morning everyone, can I please ask you to take photos of what you are up to and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you put your class and name in the email, I will be able to see them and even put them on this web page! Because of my asthma, I'm not allowed out of the house at all at the moment, not even for a walk so your pictures would really cheer me up.
Here is a picture of some animals.
1. Which continent do they come from?
2. Which countries do they come from? (One is from a different country.)
3. The animals found on this continent are often found nowhere else in the world. Find out about some of these animals, draw and write about them.
Time to compete with someone in your house for speed times tables!
Throw a die (or find a virtual one online) and multiply the answer by 3)
when you have learnt the times tables to 6x3, just double the numbers on the die e.g. 6 becomes 12, so if you throw a 6 your calculation is 12 x 3. After half an hour or so, you should be amazing at the three times tables. You could go onto hit the button to prove it! https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-buttonhttps://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button
Calling all KS2 Eco-Team members!
Even though we cannot meet with Riddhi and our fellow team members, we can still think about our Eco-Team project and looking after our fantastic planet.
With this in mind, how about making an Ecobrick? Here’s some reasons why:
So, are you ready for the challenge? Then find an empty plastic drinks bottle, (less than 600ml capacity), wash it out, leave it upturned to dry and start collecting some materials.
A great site to visit is https://www.ecobricks.org
This gives lots of information on how to make the perfect Ecobrick!
Ecobricks in action
Wednesday 25th March 2020
Good morning everyone! How did you get along with yesterday's work? I can't wait to hear all about your Palaeolithic artwork.
Today, one of my cats, Olly,is helping me to work. I was awake quite early and had some ideas for your homework so I made a cup of tea and grabbed by laptop. Olly however had other ideas and sat on the keyboard until I gave him some attention.
Today, I would like you to explore farming in Neolithic Britain (New Stone Age).
Take a look at this video: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/story-of-britain-new-stone-age-animation/zjh2t39
With an adult, talk about what has changed for people during the Neolithic. What are the advantages or disadvantages of farming compared to being a hunter gatherer? You could make two lists and compare them. Do you think that life was easy or hard for those early farmers? Why do you think that?
In maths today, I would like you to write down the 3, 6 and 9 times tables in columns, side by side. What do you notice about all of the answers in the 6 times table?
What do you notice about the 3 and nine times tables? What other patterns can you see?
Don't forget to complete your work on Reading Eggs and TT Rock Stars
See you tomorrow!
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Today I have two jobs for you.
1: If you have access to the internet, find out what kind of animals Palaeolithic man (Early Stone Age) hunted, then draw a picture of what that might have looked like. Remember my rule, draw what you see, not what you think you see, especially when it comes to animals!
2: Maths. This is a great maths trick to play on people. You can work out if any number is divisible by 3 with this simple trick.
This is what you do:
1. Think of any number e.g. 54
2. Add the digits together 5+4 =9
3. Is the answer in the 3 x table? Yes, means it's divisible by 3, no means it isn't. 9 is divisible by 3 so it is definitely in the 3 times table.
4. 573. 5 + 7 + 3 = 15. 15 is in the 3 times table so is divisible by 3
5. 13,423 + 1+3+4+2+3 = 13 No it is not in the 3 times table and not divisible by 3.
6. Get an adult to give you numbers and check your answers on their phone calculators, you will look like a maths genius... which you are!
You will also have a reading eggs assignment to complete every week and please make sure that you spend time on TT Rock Stars.
See you tomorrow with more jobs!
