Friday 5th March


Remember it is book week this week!  Check out Bishop’s Hull TV for today’s video!

Also remember to have a go at Mrs Payne’s book week challenge from the front page



This week we are finishing looking at statistics.  We are currently following the White Rose Hub units.  All the answers and videos are linked below.



We have now finished all of our maths White Rose Hub Statistics booklet and on Monday we will start our new one in school.  So, for today I am going to link some different challenges for you to have a go at.  They are linked below and the cover a range of maths that we have looked at, including times tables.  There is also different levels of challenge, 1 star is some challenge, 2 star more challenge and 3 star lots of challenge.  Find the one that best works for you.  Also if you do not have a printer, you can just write them into you yellow exercise books.


It is really  important for you to practice these as when you are in year 4 you will have your times table test (not until summer term of that year).


You can also go onto MathShed and practice your times-tables and their inverse.

Click here for a link to the website, you log in through Edshed. 




For today we are continuing our Somerset Literacy Network plan on 'The Seven Sisters', please find the story linked below.  

Re-read the story 'The Seven Sisters'.

Below is your activity for today, I have also linked the story again.


Gaia, the Earth Mother, turned the seven sisters into trees so that they could stay and dance together for ever.

Folk stories, fairy tales and ancient myths often tell of a person being magically transformed into something else. It might be that they are changed into a creature of some sort, or part of the landscape, or an object in the night sky. Often they are changed as a punishment, but sometimes it is to grant a wish.

Your task is to make a list of stories where a person is turned into something else.

Your list should mention:

The title of the story - the name of the person or object that is changed - what they are changed into - why they were changed.

For example: Cinderella – a pumpkin - a carriage – to take Cinderella to the ball.



Book Week Challenge!

Today on Bishop's Hull TV, Mrs Payne has recorded a video to celebrate book week. 


Watch it on Bishop's Hull TV then come back here and work on today's activity!


For today I would like you to think about some of your favourite books.  When you have thought about then I would also like you to think about some of your favourite characters in these books.  Your challenge is to draw your favourite character and write about why they are your favourite, what book they come from, what they do and how important they are to the story.  It would be great if you could bring this into school for Monday so Mrs Payne can pop them up around the school to help inspire others to read that book and find out about the character!


One of my favourite characters is .......


This is Alice from Alice in Wonderland.  She is one of my favourite characters because she keeps going, even when things get tough!


I would like you to spend some time every day reading your reading book or any book you are enjoying.  It is great to read to others but it is also good to do some independent reading!  Maybe you could send in some book reviews that we could share on our webpage!

REMEMBER, we now have a great website called GetEpic!  It would be wonderful to see you using that as well!


Read Write Inc

In Read Write Inc we are continuing looking at our new unit, this is unit 12 focussing on adding the prefix anti-, it is on page 50-53.  But today I would like you to just work on page 50 and complete the Spelling Zone activity.  Try not to skip ahead to other activities as it is important to do a little bit every day.  Monday we shall be looking at dots and dashes and word changers.


Today we are concluding AMV RE unit 1 -What do Jewish people believe about God and the Covenant and Torah? 


We have looked at many aspects of Judaism, such as Abraham and the covenant, Moses and the 10 plagues, Moses and the 10 commandments, the Torah, the Synagogue and many import Jewish symbols and festivals!  That is a lot!  So to finish off this topic of RE and ready to start our next topic focussing on Christianity and Easter, I would like you to create a leaflet all about the Jewish faith.  Create it so that it could help someone who knows nothing about this faith.  I shall leave links to videos and PowerPoints below to help you.  Please bring them in for next week, I would love to create a display with them!
