Hamilton Trust Learning Packs
Hamilton Trust are providing free home learning packs for English and maths for Years 1-6 for parents to download and use at home. The packs provide an excellent learning resource, particularly for English as they link with reading and grammar.
Please could you look at these websites to continue your learning.
- Times Table Rockstars. Battles will be ongoing during the week.
- MyMaths. Please log on and complete the activities set.
- White Rose Hub has some short videos and some follow on questions.
Please could you continue learning 3,4 and 8 times tables. You also have your home learning tasks to complete.
In our latest Maths topic, we have been learning about weighing and measuring volume. Any opportunities to measure would be brilliant.
English & Guided Reading
These websites will be great to continue your English learning.
Please continue reading and entering into your Reading Record Book 4 times a week.
Can you rewrite part of your favourite story? Try to make at least 3 changes, these could be; the characters; what they are doing or where the story is set. We are looking for you to use some excellent vocabulary, including adjectives and adverbials.
As a challenge don’t say what the original story was and see if somebody else can guess.
Please revise and learn your Word Warrior spellings which can be found on p114 of your Reading Record Book.
Use these words to your own word search. If you can then scan these in and email them, we can collect them and send them out for other children to try and solve.
These sites include games and activities that can be used to support SPAG in Year 3.https://www.childrensuniversity.manchester.ac.uk/learning-activities/languages/words/adjective-detective/

Continue with local area work, can you add to it with some of these ideas:
Research all about Christchurch
- Create a fact file including information such as; the population, climate, wildlife, natural and man-made features.
- Produce a holiday leaflet persuading people to visit. Think about persuasive writing techniques, explain why Christchurch is better than the others places to visit and include tours/activities that are available there.
- Draw a map of the area and label key features/ places of interest. Can you include a key?
- Compare your Christchurch to another town. You could make a list of their similarities and difference. Perhaps you could display this information in a Venn diagram or graph.
- Design a new flag for Christchurch. What would be your choice of colours and why? Would it have an emblem? Write a description of your flag explaining your choices. What do they represent?
Carry on drawing and creating! You might even want to explore a few digital sites:

Spend some time thinking about the Science we have covered recently.
- Whereabouts in your home would be a good place for a plant to grow? Why?
- Where would be a bad place for a plant to grow?
If you have any leftover carrot tops or apple pips, you could try growing them in different places and find out!

- All young people should aim to be physically active for 60 minutes each day.
- Print off these sheets and keep a log or how active you have been.
- We would encourage you to do as many of these activities in your gardens, benefiting from the fresh air, as possible.
Please ensure you have enough room to do these activities and perform them in a safe manner.
