Year 3/4


  Week beginning: Monday 18th May 2020                  Summer term- Week 5


  A Big hello to our lovely 🦔 Hedgehogs.

 Welcome to the last week of this half term! We are both so impressed by how hard you have all worked with your home learning. You are all superstars🤩 and should be very proud of yourselves. One more week of work and then a week off to relax and recharge your batteries , hopefully in the sunshine ☀

                  Home learning Summer Term.

As you will be aware school re-opens to a small number of year groups and key worker children from 1st June 2020. Unfortunately, we are not in a position to accept all children back just yet, and many of you in Hedgehogs will continue learning from home for a while longer.


We will be continuing to set home learning for all of you as normal over this phased return period using the class closure webpages on the school website. This will continue to focus on the core subjects and some topic work. A mixture of English, Maths, Reading, and fun Topic / Project work.

The topic for the remainder of the term will continue to be based on the book ‘Atlas of Animal Adventures’ and all the topic / project work will be related to the outdoors, new life, wildlife and exploring surroundings.

The children that are in school over this period of a potential phased return from the 1st June will be accessing the same resources as those at home but just in school with a member of the teaching staff.  This way all of us will have access to the same resources, just in different locations for the time being.

This week we are moving away from the icy cold climate of the Arctic and are travelling south of the Equator to the  tropical Amazon Rainforest. We will explore the diverse range of species that live in this extremely important eco- system, before at a later date, exploring some of the challenges the species here are facing today.


Please see the attached links and powerpoint, fact cards, photos, and other information on the Amazon Rainforest:


There is also a great interactive game at the below website where you can place creatures in their habitats in the different layers of the rainforest.




As writers, we would like you to write a story about animals in the Amazon Rainforest. You may wish to write it in First or third person narrative, thinking about the different animals you may see if you were to visit the Amazon.

If you are finding your year group's work too hard, don't panic and just do the year below. Every little helps (e.g. Year 3 - White Rose Week 4, Lesson 1 is the name of the downloadable resource at the bottom of this page for Monday)


Please continue to practise your times tables- How many can you answer in 5 minutes? ( see attached file or write out your own) Also practise these on Purple Mash and TT Rockstars!

Can you make your own rainmaker to mimic the sound of the tropical daily rainfall that you would expect to hear in the rainforest .

Be creative and have fun with this, there are attached instructions if you need them🎶🎶

Dont forget to share these with us- they will look and sound incrediblelaugh



Invent a rainforest creature of your own (see attached rainforest habitat/powerpoint for ideas🐱‍🐉)

Which animals do you think have good qualities for living in the rainforest? Think about a butterfly’s wings, a monkey’s long arms and a beetle’s hard shell.

Draw a picture of what it would look like and write where it would live and why you have chosen those parts of the animals.

enlightened You may wish to make your own creature, instead of drawing it👏




We have all been enjoying our mindfulness and relaxation and have learnt alot from cosmic kids-how it helps us feel calm and manage our emotions the best we can, in order to maximise our learning and be the best version of ourselves that we can!

Fitness and wellbeing:

Let's keep our fitness up whilst we have time at home. Click on the link, watch the interactive home work out videos and give it a go. No equipment needed, so no excuses! Let's have fun and keep fit! Test yourself if you can and try to combine more than one exercise video. Why not try as many as you want throughout the day or even create your own?
