School code is rxmd
- You could share the text or another book together where you read and discuss (either the whole book for short stories or a chapter a day for longer books).
- Listen to your child read and let them discuss what they have read. Encourage them to read with expression and intonation.
A selection of free to read eBooks can be found on:
- EPIC This is where you will need to go now for free ebooks
type in school code hrn6143
- WORLDBOOKSONLINE IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE. They made it free when lock down started but now it has to be paid for.
- watch Newsround and discuss what is happening around the world.
Practise the year 3 / 4 statutory words -
You have now worked your way through all of the words on the statutory word list for year 3 and 4 meaning that over the previous few weeks you should have practised spelling all of them.
Use this statutory words list sheet to check which words you have made spelling mistakes with before and then practise them some more until you get them right.
Over the week complete all of the following for the words you have chosen:
- Learn how to spell the words
- Write a definition of each focus word (what it means)
- Where it is possible, write synonyms for each focus word (words which mean the same) and antonyms (words which mean the opposite)
- Use each focus word in a sentence.
Over the next few weeks do a spelling test once a week on the words that have been identified as the ones your child is struggling with from the list – it takes 10 minutes and keeps your kids on their toes.
Day 1 You are going to practise using speech punctuation again like you did last week. Sometimes the reported clause (said word and who is saying it) comes at either the beginning of the sentence or in the middle of the sentence.
" I can't wait to see my friends, I've really missed everybody," stated Miss Smith.
Miss Smith stated, "I can't wait to see my friends, I've really missed everybody."
"I can't wait to see my friends," stated Miss Smith, "I've really missed everybody."
Day 2, 3, 4 and 5 You are going to write about an animal you have 'discovered' on the island of Neverbelieve.

DAY 2: Make a plan
By now you have had lots of practise planning out your work before writing it out. Today you are going to make a plan to write about an animal you have 'discovered' in The Land of Neverbelieve.
You can set your plan out whichever way you like however, there is some information you must include:
Appearance Habitat Diet Behaviour
Think about all you have learned about animal teeth and animal diet e.g. if your animal eats meat (carnivore) it will have canine teeth and you must describe this.

Land of Neverbelieve animals This list may help you think of ideas
useful vocabulary A list of words you could use in your writing.
USE THIS INFORMATION TO MAKE A PLAN FOR A SHORT REPORT ABOUT YOUR ANIMAL
DAY 3 AND 4: Write a short report about your animal USING SUBHEADINGS.
Use your plan from yesterday to write your report. Make sure you use some of the vocabulary from the vocabulary list.

Day 5 : Edit and improve
Make any necessary corrections or improvements to your report. You may also draw and label a picture of your animal.
Don't forget to get an adult to send a picture of your work and the finished poster to your teacher via the class email address . It would be lovely to have some up in the Hall of Fame and you may even get a Golden Ticket.
This week we are still looking at the environment and habitats and the plants and animals that live there.
You are going to create a poster persuading people to look after the environment. Include:
