Stone Age Homework
Over the Summer Term please complete one activity from the table below each week. Please make sure you record your research in your books. We love celebrating the work you do at home. So bring it into school and you might some earn points too.
Please help your child learn their times tables. This will help them with all areas of Maths. By the end of Year 3, all children should have a rapid recall of their 3, 4 and 8 times tables. By the end of Year 4, all children should have a rapid recall of all tables up to 12 x 12, including the corresponding division facts. Top Tips for learning your times tables can be found below......

Today the children have been learning about how to stay safe online. We discussed what to do if different in scenarios. If we are ever unsure about something we see or hear online, we know that we should always ask a trusted adult.
We also spent some time creating posters to promote internet safety. See if you can spot your poster below. Each class was given a slot to visit the ICT Suite to look at information on internet safety websites.
After that we ended the day with a Safer Internet Day worship. We had a special guest, Mark Finlay, who spoke to us about how and why internet safety is important for everyone at Lloyds Bank. Well done to all the children who helped out in our worship by reading out the quiz questions, playing music and holding up images. It was great to see what you had all learnt throughout the day.
Remember to stay safe online and always ask a trusted adult if you are unsure.
Parents, please find more information on our E Safety link below.....

In the last week before half term, we wrote some beautiful firework poems using adverbs. We thoroughly enjoyed sharing these with Green Class using big voices and expression .... please have a look at the photographs below.
Today we have moved on from poetry to look at stories with a familiar setting. Our focus is Horrid Henry books. The children have loved listening to 'Horrid Henry's Perfect Day' and comparing the appearance and character of Horrid Henry with Perfect Peter. We are looking forward to reading more about what Horrid Henry gets up to and writing our own stories based on these stories.
In Maths we have been looking at fractions of shapes and numbers. We enjoyed making our own fraction wall by folding coloured strips of paper and using them to compare the size of different fractions. We also began to make some mixed fractions, looking closely at fractions that make one whole.
Rugby will be continuing every Monday afternoon for 4 more weeks - please ensure your child has warm clothing to wear as it has started to get a bit chilly.
Many thanks, Miss Oxton

We've had a great week this week. In English we wrote some fantastic fables, which conveyed important morals. We have now moved on to looking at poetry, learning about similes and metaphors. We had great fun making up some of our own similes.
In Maths we have been looking at the place value of digits in a number. We have rounded 3 digit numbers to the nearest 10 and 100 and solved problems applying these skills.
Yesterday, the children enjoyed creating posters about the Christian rules with Mrs Calvert some photographs of this lesson can be found below....

We have had a busy few weeks. We have begun our topic about the Ancient Egyptians. In Geography, we have been locating Egypt on a map and planning a holiday to Egypt. We have had lots of fantastic pieces of homework and the children have been earning points for their hard work.
In Maths, we have been looking at telling the time using analogue and digital clocks. We then moved on to looking at faces, sides and vertices on 2D and 3D shapes. We had lots of fun classifying the shapes into sorting hoops. We have been challenging each other on our times tables - please help your child learn their times tables. There are top tips for learning tables on this class page.
During the last few weeks, we have been looking at fables by Michael Morpurgo. We have looked at the use of inverted commas for speech and discussed morals. We have written letters to young animals to pass on morals learnt. We have also planned our own morals which we are looking forward to writing next week.
