Hello again!

I hope everyone is keeping well and is safe during this time. I must admit I have been missing you all terribly and cannot wait until we go back to school! I hope that you've been able to join in with some of the tasks that have been set. If you haven’t completed a lot of work, don't worry! I am not worried how much you are doing as long as you are doing something and spending time with your families is the most important thing during this time.


I have thought of a few ideas you could be getting on with if you are stuck for ideas:

Curriculum for 5LB

  • Purple Mash has some great activities you can try!
  • Remember, to keep on being active. Why not try Oti's dance lessons, there are plenty to try on her YouTube channel: If you're in my class, you know I love a bit of dance! I have tried it and it is great fun! 
  • You can also download your own GoNoodle account and have a go at some of the Zumba and KidsBop dances that we have done before!
  • We have worked hard on our Mindfulness this term, so maybe explain what this is to your family at home and give it a go. Here is a link to one that we have used in the classroom:  There are lots more like this on YouTube. Can you find a few to share when we are back?
  • BBC bitesize have also been uploading Geography, History, Music and Wellbeing lessons which you could join in with.
  • If you fancy trying some Spanish, BBC Bitesize have been putting up lessons you can try on there. I might even try some of these myself!





I hope you are all keeping safe,

Can't wait to see you all again,

Hi guys!


Hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying some time with your families. I am missing you lots in school today, but despite this we have been keeping busy this morning doing the Joe Wicks PE workout (which we would recommend – it starts at 9am every morning on his YouTube channel if you fancy having a go!)


Below is a list of activities for you to spend some time doing at home if you wish. There is a section for my Maths and my English class. If you fancy doing some Topic work, there is a Topic grid which you can find below the writing activities.


Take advantage of this time by enjoying the sunshine when you can. In class, we like to use Go Noodle using the Zumba dances, so you could show your parents this and teach them a thing or two at home! Play board games or cards and do jigsaws too, but most of all, keep being your happy selves!



As discussed last week, I have uploaded the writing grid to help get you inspired for your blue exercise books! 

The grid is just to give you ideas. Feel free to divert from this and use your imagination – other ideas we had were to create your dream football team, write about yourself, write a recipe or create one word stories with your families!

I have also included the spellings for Year 3 and 4 for you to work on. You could even use these words in a sentence to make sure you know what they mean. Remember to keep up the hard work you have been putting in within the class!



For Reading, you have a set a comprehension questions at the front of your Reading Record which you can use to answer questions about your books. Remember you have bug club to keep up with your reading and there are SPAG activities on there as well.



If you would like to continue practising your maths skills at home, I have set you up some activities on My Maths and you can always practise your times tables on TT Rockstars and Numbots. Everything that I have chosen to set you on My Maths is an extension of what we have learnt in class this year, as well as a few things that I know we covered last year. 


Remember that if you get stuck on a homework task, you can have a go at completing the online lesson first before having another go at the homework task.


We have also sent home login reminders for TT Rockstars and Numbots (which can both be found on the same letter), as well as the My Maths logins.


Keep up the hard work and enjoy!

Stay safe,

Mrs Blunden
