Writing – Watch the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears:

https://learnenglishkids.britishcouncil.org/short-stories/goldilocks-and-the-three-bears

1) Below the story is an option to read the story, click here for a written version of the story. This may be helpful for this first writing task. You are going to imagine you are Goldilocks and re-write the story from her point of view. Think about her explaining why she went into the Bears’ house, why she did the things she did, how did she feel when no one was there. Your account of the story should be in first person and in the past tense.

2) Imagine that you are a journalist and the Bear family have come to you to tell your about their strange break in by Goldilocks. You are going to write a newspaper article to explain what happened. Click here for your newspaper format and the features you must include.

3) Write the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears as a play script. Remember to include the features you have been taught in Creative Writing such as the layout, list of characters, characters names on the left followed by a colon, stage directions with adverbs in brackets, have a scene for each room Goldilocks goes to and remember no speech marks!  

4) Speaking & Listening: Ask members of your household if they will help you to act out your play script – only saying or acting what is written down! Ask for their feedback at the end and see if you can edit and improve your play script. Perhaps act out the improved version!

Maths

Day 1:

Coordinates – Draw a detailed map of your house and label all important places/object/items. (e.g. living room, sofa, kettle, mirror, books, teddy bear, etc.) Extension: draw an annotated map for each room.

Day 2:

Coordinates –

Look at your map. Ask a family member to identify the coordinates of different objects. Remember the rules: ‘Along the corridor, up the stairs’

X is always the flat axis going across/along the page, the Y goes up.

Day 3:

Directions – Choose a starting point and write instructions on how to find a specific place or object.

Key words: left/West, right/East, up/North, down/South, clockwise, anticlockwise.

Day 4:

Translation of objects – Choose at least 6 objects from your map and translate them. Identify the new coordinates. Remember: translation is when a shape or an object slides from one place to the other, without rotating or flipping over.

Day 6:

2-D Shapes: draw all 2-D shapes that you can think of and label them. Then, think of their properties; write down how many sides and angles they have. E.g.: A square is a quadrilateral that has 4 equal sides and four right angles.

 

Maths Frame Multiplication Check Game: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Checkb

 

Day 7:

Symmetry – Practical activity: look at your 2-D shapes. Use a separate sheet to draw and cut the shapes out and fold the paper (as practised at school) to find any lines of symmetry (mirror line).

 

Maths Frame Multiplication Check Game: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Checkb

 

Day 8:

Perimeter – Draw at least 5 shapes and find their perimeter. Use a ruler. Remember: to find the perimeter of a shape, you add up the lengths of all sides. Challenge: draw a compound shape (a shape made up of two or more basic shapes; e.g. an L shape).

 

Maths Frame Multiplication Check Game: https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Checkb

 

Day 9:

Area – Use the same shapes now to work out their area. Remember: area is calculated by multiplying the length of a shape by its width. If your shape is on a grid, all you have to do is count how many squares it covers. Area is measured in square centimeters (cm²).

Science: Circuits & Conductors

This is going to be your first introduction into what a circuit is and how it works. On the LGFL website, follow this link to your ‘Virtual Experiment’: https://www.lgfl.net/learning-resources/summary-page/virtual-experiments-years-3-and-4 . You will then have to ‘launch’ the site by clicking the red box in the top right hand corner.

 

Then click on ‘4F Circuits and conductors’ as this is your Science topic for this term.

 

  1. Start with the ‘Introduction’ activity. Click on the vocabulary so you understand what the components of a circuit are.
  2. Move on to ‘Activity’. This will help you to understand what items will conduct electricity so the bulb lights up. Think about the material these items are made from and list them in a table as I have done below.

 

Conductor: (item & material)

Insulator: (item & material)

Paper clip - metal

Baby bottle - plastic

 

  1. Finally go to ‘Extension’ when you have given an answer for all 4 circuits, click ‘check’.

 

Design & TechnologyFood Technology

The focus for this term is bread, how it is made and its purposes. Make a list of different uses for bread. How many did you think of?

 

Visit the Warburton’s website and explore the history of bread and how bread is made on a large, commercial scale, starting with ‘Our History’: https://www.warburtons.co.uk/corporate/our-history.
