Welcome to Term 6

Hello Everyone,

We hope that you are well and taking care of yourselves.

Although, at this time, Year 3 and 4 are not returning to school as a cohort the children of some key workers are.  As our team will be in school each day to support these children, home learning will be presented in a different way from now on. 

Through a combination of links to online learning from other providers, worksheets or ideas and suggestions there will be plenty of work and activities available for you to use at home.

If you want to revisit any of the videos or work covered in Terms 4 and 5 you can find a link for each term at the bottom of the page.

We are always happy to receive and review your work on Dojo but our response time may now be longer due to us being based back at school.

Remember the values for this term are happiness and excellence so try and think about them for a moment each day and reflect on what you have achieved.

Times tables / Rapid Recall of number facts

As you know, knowledge of times tables and the rapid recall of number facts underpins so many areas of learning in maths.  The links below are a good starting point for practising the rapid recall of times tables and number facts.



Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura

One day a little boy is walking along when he trips, stumbles and falls … into the Stone Age!  He meets a girl his own age and her tribe, and learns all about their way of life. He watches them make tools, clothes and weapons.  He sees how they hunt, fish, cook, celebrate – and even how they paint on the walls of caves.  But when a furious cave bear attacks, he wakes up back in his own time where everyone tells him it was only a dream. But was it?

Week 1



Wednesday 3rd June 

Watch the video of 'Stone Age Boy' read by Memma the Cave Woman (you don't have to sleep at the end!).

Watch the video again and as you do write a list of all the jobs that Stone Age people had to do.

Are there any jobs you would like / not like to do?

Thursday 4th June

Watch the video again (unless you can remember the story) or read the text (slightly reduced version) and answer the questions.

Stone Age Boy Text

Stone Age Boy Comprehension Questions

Friday 5th June

Open up the word mat attached and use each word to write a sentence about the story Stone Age Boy.  Think about how you can make your sentences interesting by the word choices you make, include a conjunction or a fronted adverbial, etc.

Challenge - find other words in the story that you like and put them into sentences about the book.

Stone Age Boy word mat

Week 2 Monday 8th June

Please watch the video and complete the activity - questions and answers

Tuesday 9th June Today you are going to create a story map for Stone Age Boy - just like we do in class.  You may want to watch the video or re-read the text to help you with this (see last week's lessons for the links).  Can you use your map to re-tell the story?  Can you perform your re-telling to someone at home?
Wednesday 10th June

Please watch the video and complete the activities - adverbials

Thursday 11th June

You are going to write a diary entry as if you are the boy and you have fallen through the ground and ended up in the Stone Age.  Think about describing your thoughts and feelings as you walk through this strange place.  Describe how you feel when you meet Om and her family.  Only write up until the point that you have arrived at Om's camp (but describe the camp!)  Can you use a range of adverbials in your writing?

Friday 12th June

Today you are going to focus on the end of the story - the last day that Om and the boy spend together.  You will describe the cave they enter, seeing the paintings, meeting the bear and returning home to your time. 

You can present this writing in any way that you want to.  Some ideas are: a comic strip, a diary entry, a poem, a story (but just the ending) or a newspaper report.  Be as creative as you would like to be!


This week we are going to focus on poetry about change and diversity. 

Week 3


Monday 15th June

Today I would like you to watch the 2018 National Poetry Day Live Lesson based on 'change' to learn more about poets and poetry.  There are 2 worksheets (which are used in the video) that you can print off and complete while you watch but you can just watch, listen and join in with the children in the audience!

           Simile and metaphor sheet

           Alliteration sheet

Tuesday 16th June

Look at the power point presentation and think about what 'diversity' means.  Answer the questions on the sheet 'we are all different.' 

Embrace our differences power point

We are all different questions to answer

Design a poster on the theme of 'Diversity.'  Think about how you will set your poster out, the words and pictures you will include.  You may like to include images from magazines or draw it all yourself.

Be proud of who you are poster (example poster)

Wednesday 17th June

Watch and then read the poem 'Beautifully different, Wonderfully the same,'

(To watch)

(To read)

Read through the poem a number of times and talk about the meaning in the words - think about the message it is giving about diversity

Perform the poem - think about how you could 'perform' the poem (remember the tips you were given in yesterday's video about showing emotion, change in pace and intonation as you read).  Perform the poem to someone at home.

Thursday 18th June Can you add a new verse to the poem 'Beautifully different, Wonderfully the same'?  Follow the pattern of the poem whereby in each verse there are 2 different actions or feelings identified that are said to be the same but at the end of the verse a difference is identified.
Friday 19th June

Write an acrostic poem based on the word 'diversity.'  You could write just one, well-chosen word for each letter or you could challenge yourself to write a whole line.  Think about the different types of words you could include - onomatopoeia (a word that sounds like what it means e.g. boom, crash, buzz), alliteration, simile, metaphor, etc.

Diversity Acrostic Poem Writing Frame

Well done for all of the super work you have done this term! 

This week you have a pick and mix option of different writing activities to try. 

Would you rather? 

Decide which of the things you would choose from the sheet and then write a sentence or two to explain why. Fill in the thinking bubble at the end.

A-Z of the school year writing frame

Can you complete the A-Z by writing something next to each letter linked to school e.g. P for Pensford, or your learning in Otter class this year e.g. V for Vikings! 

Ten Facts About Me

Can you think of 10 things that nobody at school knows about you?

Blank word search template

Create your own word search about something that interests you and ask a grown-up to complete it!

Design a new ice-cream

Design a new flavour of ice-cream and create a poster to sell it to other people.  Think about a catchy / alliterative (e.g. Scrumptious sweet and sticky!) heading and some words that would persuade people to buy it!


Ideally you will be reading everyday both on your own and to a grown-up.  It is also great to have books read to you.  Always talk about what you are reading and your understanding of it. 

If you are running out of books to read at home you could try...


*New Online Reading Resource List - You will need to subscribe but a number of the eBooks are free to read.

The books at the top of the page may not interest you, but if you scroll to the bottom of the page and look at 'Authors and illustrators' there are good links to authors reading extracts from their books.

Oxford Owl Reading Challenge Grid - although originally intended for the summer holiday, which of these activities can you complete?

ResourceBook Review


Please find attached a number of word searches that contain the Year 3 and 4 common exception words.  There is also a list of these words.  It would be great if you could check how many of these you can spell and then focus on learning any that you cannot.  The national expectation is that Year 3 children should know approximately half of the words by the end of Year 3 and Year 4 should know all of them by the end of the year.
