Purple Mash work:
Art: Design an Easter Egg and draw some flowers in a vase.
Science: Some research on our vital organs - maybe you have a book about the human body or you could with an adult online.
Grammar: Different words we can use instead of 'said', using suffixes (for some), sequencing sentences (for some)
Maths: A mixture of maths tasks - addition and subtraction and multiplication and division.
English: A book review (for some) - what book have you read recently or you could write about a favourite book. Also a description task about describing lambs - please use sentences not just single words and check your punctuation and spellings.
Spellings: These are quizzes and I know some of you have practised these words before but it is good to go over them again. Could parents please try and do a weekly spelling test on these words and children can practise the words by putting them into sentences, doing look cover check, writing the words in bubble writing, drawing a picture and hiding the words in a picture, pyramid writing or writing the words in different colours.
Some of the work I will be setting on Purple Mash will be new learning especially the Maths work so please work with your child to research these areas first so they have some understanding before completing the tasks on Purple Mash. I sent an email to you all with good websites to look on which also has some Youtube tutorials. Also Hamilton Trust are doing daily Maths and English packs for children to complete for their year group.
In addition to these activities, please continue to carry out daily reading and practise your times tables on Times Table Rock Stars.
French: Can you find out how to say some colours in French - white, black, red, pink, blue, green, brown, yellow and orange.
Science: How do magnets work? Twinkl has some information about this.
English: Chose a picture from www.pobble365.com you can either answer the tasks for the picture of use the picture to do a free write - you could write a story, newpaper report, diary entry, playscript or a poem, it's your choice.
