Friday 27th March

Friday 27th March

Good morning Class Four!

Hope you had another day of good home learning and sunshine yesterday. I finally managed to get the first coat of paint done on the fence, I did a second coat on a few of the panels but then I ran out of paint! So I planted up some plants I had bought at B and Q at the weekend and some sweet pea seeds. I'm not a very good gardener, but I'll try my best to look after them and send you some pictures if they grow!

Mrs Soley says hi. She is busy planning some little Easter challenges. Although we won't be setting home learning during the Easter holidays, we know that you probably still won't be able to go out and do much. So we thought we'd keep writing you messages and set you some little challenges which you don't have to do, but might be fun and keep you busy.

I am so excited about the fact it is Friday, because that means I will hopefully be receiving e-mails from all of you. Some of you have e-mailed already to say hi and to send me you silent writing or rainbows. I really love hearing from you as I miss you all lots.

When you e-mail today, please could you attach your silent writing. But alongside this, please send me a message to let me know what you've been up to and how you are. Here are some of the things you might want to tell me:

  • Which activities you have enjoyed the most and why
  • If you have found any activities particularly challenging or hard
  • What exercise you have been doing - have you been doing Jo Wicks too?
  • Which book you are reading at home (I'm reading a really good one called Cockroaches by Jo Nesbo which Mrs Pilgrim lent me. It's a murder mystery set in Thailand and focuses on a police detective trying to work out who did it. Unfortunately it's not a children's book, so I can't recommend it to you, but if anyone is reading something really good I can recommend, then I will share it! I've been reading every night before I go to sleep and some mornings when I first wake up)
  • What fun things you have been doing with your family

Don't forget, there's still time to send me a rainbow if you want to, to add to the gallery.

You might also like to send me some photos to show me what you have been doing. I thought it might be nice to make an extra gallery to show off some of the good work/fun activities you've been doing. Or perhaps you have a nice photo of you and your family or your pet you'd like to share with the rest of the class. I'm sure you are all missing each other lots.

Please send your e-mail to

Have a great day, work hard, enjoy the sunshine and I look forward to receiving your e-mails later 

Love Miss Olver x

I will be starting my day with PE with Jo again today. I have really enjoyed doing this everyday this week. It has been good to do some fitness in a fun way, but also been nice to have a little bit of a routine in my day. I wonder what moves we will have to do today? The squats were hard work yesterday!


Today is problem solving day! This is where you can use all the skills you have practised this week in your Maths sessions and apply them to some problems. Decide which level, A, B or C, is right for you. Read through the questions carefully, you might want to underline key vocabulary which will help you know which operation to use. Think about whether the problem is one step or two steps. When you have worked out the numerical answer, remember to answer the problem properly - worded problems need worded answers! The answers are online so you can check your work.

If you have time, or want another challenge, I have also included a dip and pick card. It has been a little while since we last did one of these. You need to work through the questions going up the colour order that is shown on the right hand side (orange through to purple). Again, answers are attached.


Remember to write in your diary/journal at some point today.

Today's English session is a reading comprehension. Read through the reading text about Mothers Day, then work through the comprehension questions. Remember to skim and scan through the text to help you find the answers. Then check your work with the answer sheet.


The plan I gave you last week says that you can do any PE you like today. 

Sports Dave has been busy preparing a skills session for you. He has filmed himself (and his daughters) doing a little football skills session, so you might want to do that.

You also might want to have a go at his weekly sports challenge - I have been practising and will let you know tomorrow what my best score was. 

You can find his video and challenge if you go onto 'News', then choose 'Sport and Keeping Active Home-Learning'.

But, you can still do any PE you like if you don't fancy this.

Spelling and Reading

Today is spelling test day! I have filmed myself saying the spelling sentences for you if you want to do it that way, or you can just get someone to read them out whilst you write them. If you use my video, then you can just press pause or start it again as many times as you like. Then look at the spelling homework sheet to check. Remember your punctuation!

As always, try to spend some time reading a book of your choice.
