Jan 2021 - Feb 2021
Online learning. 

Hello everyone, 
As you will all be aware, our new learning platform is now on Teams. 
All children have log in details to access the work. On here they can complete the work set and turn it back in. 

Just in case anyone is struggling to use this I will also place the work on here daily. 

Many thanks, 
Miss Brown

Preposition – This is new learning to us.

Prepositions are words in a sentence that tell us where something is – under, next to, behind, inside.


I want you to look at the picture and write sentences about what you see using prepositions.


Maths : We are continuing with looking at partitioning. This is where we split a number down into 1000s, 100s, 10s and 1s.

  1. Draw your own part-whole models.
  2. Look at different ways that a number can be partitioned. Sometimes 1000s and 100s can be added together to form part of the part whole model.

This is tricky and we haven’t yet covered this in class so try your best. If you find this difficult do not panic because we will recap this when we are back in school learning J


Science: Our topic in science is rocks. I want you to have a search of your house/ garden and find all the used of rock. Record where you find them and what the rock is being used for.

Tuesday 22nd September 2020.


We are going to look at adjectives and conjunctions today.

An adjective is a describing words and a conjunction is a connecting word that joins 2 sentences today.

1 – Read the sentences and find the adjectives and conjunctions.

2- Re-write the sentences and add in your own amazing adjectives.


Maths – Today we are going to focus on partitioning. This is when we break a number down into 1000s, 100s, 10s and 1s.

So for examples, 7293 = 7000, 200, 90 and 3.

To partitioning, we usually use part whole models, which are on the questions (a whole circle at the top and circle coming off it to show the ‘parts’ that make up the number.

For afterwards, there is a tournament on TTRS between the Quartz girls and the Quartz boy – have a good on this. The boys are currently winning!


RE: Last week we began to look at wonderful things in the world and what we thought was beautiful. I want you to think back to this and complete the grid. You can add words or pictures. Then have a look at the ‘man-made’ objects and think about why they are eye catching and beautiful.

Monday 21st September 2020


Good morning – I hope you have had a lovely weekend. Hopefully by the end of this week we can be back in school and back to normality.


English – Nouns and verbs. Today we are recapping what a noun is and what a verb is.

Noun = an object, things or thing.

Verb = an action/ doing word.

After out input, read the sentences on sheet 1 and circle the nouns and verb.

Sometime a word can be a noun and a verb – it depends on how it is used.

On sheet 2, you have to read the sentences and decide whether the underlined word is a verb or noun.

Maths – We are continuing to look at 4 digit numbers. We are using 1000s, 100s 10s and 1s.
Also there is 2 Fluent in 15 sheet uploaded. Have a look at them both and pick which you feel most comfortable with. You could challenge yourself and do both! 

History – Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DkXHi-udxg and make a mindmap of all the things you learn about the daily life of The Stone Age people. Think about food, animals, clothing, jobs, weather, houses etc.

Dear parents and carers, 

As you are all aware, our class bubble has had to be disbanded due to a positive test result within the bubble. All the children and adults within the bubble now to have self-isolate.  
I understand at this time you may be feeling anxious so if you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to get in touch with me using this email and I will do my very best to help you. 

Following education guidance from the government, the education of the children must continue. Back when the first lockdown happened, the activities and lessons for English and Maths that were uploaded were aimed at building upon the children's prior learning in Y3. However, due to the 6 months previous of the children not being in school, it is essential that we press on with the national curriculum and begin introducing new concepts to reduce the loss of learning. 

Each morning I will host a zoom meeting at 9.30am. I have sent an email with the ID and password - if you need this again please email me as I cannot put it on the website. 
If you would like your child to join the zoom meeting but don't have an account, you can set one up here https://zoom.us/signin
On the zoom meetings I will explain the days work and help with any explanations. 
Each day I will be posting an English, Maths and a wider curriculum activity.  Any work completed should be sent to my email address: rebecca.brown@hunsletstmarys.co.uk as it is completed. This way I can look at the work and send feedback etc. It is really important the children complete the work that is uploaded so they don't fall behind in their learning. Pictures can be taken of the work completed or files uploaded via email if they complete it on a laptop or tablet.  There will also be links to websites and TTRS will still be available and I will start some tournaments for the children to partake in. 

All the work will be uploaded to our class page: https://www.hunsletstmarys.co.uk/page.php?id=10998

I am also going to be holding a zoom meet up session on Friday afternoon where myself and the other staff members from the bubble will be on and we can have a little virtual get together. I will send out the zoom i.d and password Friday morning. If you would like your child to join the zoom meeting but don't have an account, you can set one up here https://zoom.us/signin 

Tomorrows learning will be uploaded by 9am tomorrow morning and I will be contactable all day using this email address or the message board on our class page. 

If you have any questions are queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch. 

Stay safe and kind regards, 
Miss Rebecca Brown

English – descriptive writing. Today we are looking at what makes a good piece of descriptive writing – adjectives, similes, use of senses, lists, fronted adverbials and conjunctions.

Your task is to read the pieces of description and find all these things – there is a hard, medium and easy one. Look at them all and do the one you feel most comfortable with.


Maths – We will be recognising 4 digit numbers today using places value – 1000s, 100s 10s and 1s. https://vimeo.com/455437912

1 – look at the grids for reading and tell me what number I have made.

2- draw your own numbers using place value pictures – you can draw base 10 pictures or the counters.

3 – what is the underlined number worth?

4- Have a look at the challenge.


PSHE – look at the hopes and dreams sheet and fill out what you want to achieve

Wednesday 16th September 2020.

Please find all the work you will need for today here:

English - use the skills we have been practising in class to improve sentences. Think about CAPITAL LETTERS, FULL STOPS, COMMAS FOR LIST, SPELLING, QUESTION MARKS AND EXCLAMATION MARKS. Write the sentences and send them in.

Maths - Count in 1000s.

We begin at 0, 1000,2000,3000,4000,5000,6000,7000,8000,9000 and 10,000.

Read the questions carefully.


Science - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z9bbkqt/articles/zsgkdmn .

Watch the video and listen to the 3 ways that rock is made: igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic. Write how each one is formed then draw your own picture. Look at the examples for help.
