You can record your answers on the sheet or in your home learning book. If you aren't able to print the worksheet, you can just look and discuss the questions and method with someone.

Week 2 Year 3 follow this link You are focusing on fractions, use the w/c 27th April tab.

Week 2 Year 4 follow this link This week your focus is decimals and money, use the w/c 27th April tab.



This week we will be focusing on poetry. Below is a poem about a dragonfly.


Dragonfly Out in the Sun

BY David Windle


I am a dragonfly

and I live on the breeze,

between the reeds and rushes

and the sun’s soft fingers.


I am a dragonfly

and my wings are like water,

or as sharp as two swords

cutting the air into pieces.


I am a dragonfly

and my eyes are glass,

as round as the moon

they see all that pass.


I am a dragonfly

and my body’s a spear;

as sharp as an eagle

I hunt for my prey.


I am a dragonfly

and I float like a dancer

over the pond’s still surface,

which reflects, like a mirror,

my miraculous presence.


Do you know how I feel?



Read the poem about a dragonfly and underline the adjectives, verbs and nouns in different colours. Also, look at the structure of the poem, how many lines are in each paragraph, does anything stand out about the sentences used?

Once you have done this, draw a picture of what you think the Dragonfly in the poem would look like?



Year 3- Looking at the Poem can you spot any Similes? Remember a simile compares two things using the words ‘like’ or ‘as’. E.g. The boy was as fast as a cheetah. Write down all the similes you can spot then create your own based on an animal of your choice.

Year 4- Can you look for metaphors as well as similes? Remember this is when you say one thing is another. E.g. The sun is a golden ball. Write down the similes and metaphors that you found in the poem then create your own about an animal of your choice.


Use this video to help you understand similes:

Use this video to help you understand metaphors:



Draw an animal in the centre of your page. Around the animal, list as many adjectives to describe it that you can think of. Also think of any verbs that the animal may do, for example a Kangaroo would jump.



Create a poem about the animal you drew yesterday. Make sure you include all of the features that we have been looking at this week; adjectives, nouns, verbs, similes (and metaphors for year 4). Make sure your poem is written in verses (paragraphs), with 4 lines in each, similar to the one you read on Monday. You can be really creative with this and draw pictures around your poem.

 Friday - Here is a extact from a story, use your VIPERS skills to answer the questions based on what you read.  We will continue with this text next week too.

VIPERS questions


 In science this term Year 3 will be studying parts of a plant.

Last week, you labelled the parts of a plant. This week you are going to look closely at roots and stems and identify the purpose of each of theses features. First, look at the images in this document and identify the part of the plant that is being zoomed into. Now watch this video all about roots and this video all about stems. 

Now make 2 mind maps one showing everything you have learnt about roots and one showing everything you have learnt about stems. Make sure you include the purpose of each one.

Finally watch this video to see how the roots and stem work together to help the plant survive.


In science this term Year 4 will be grouping living thing. Last week you sorted animals into lots of different categories. This week you are going to use this knowledge to categorise animals using questions. Look at the word document below which includes lots of different animals. You task this week is to choose one animal at a time and ask a yes/no question that would help to categorise and identify that animal. For example, if you chose a dolphin a question you could ask is ‘does it live in the sea?’. Try and think of and record 8 questions. Animals document 



Our topic this term is Eco enthusiasts, so we thought this terms learning should be based around this and your pre-learning from before Easter.

This week - Greta Thunberg 2.pdf

Read pages 1&2 and answer the questions on pages 3&4



This term we are going to be coding using

This week you are going to recap what each of the blocks look like and what they do. Look the the document below to remind yourselves of each block. To help you remember what each block is used for write an algorithm (set of insructions) for an every day activity (like brushing your teeth) using the blocks in the document. Scratch blocks.

You might want to draw your algorithm into your book or take a picture of what you have done and post it on seesaw.


Art/DT Project-


Your task is to design and create something that will help stop climate change, the environment or generate energy. You can get creative and design some kind of contraption! Or recreate something that already exists like a wind turbine.

Build your creation out of anything you can find (make sure you check with mum/dad before using). Example could be junk modelling out of old cereal boxes, playdough, Lego, paper, twigs.

Once you have created your design, you can write a paragraph to explain what it is and how it might work!
