Monday 23rd March

Good Morning!

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. I will try to keep these emails to one per day so as not to overload you however I will send a login for a website called Fiction Express later on. This is a website to keep children reading while we are off without access to libraries.

Here is the work I would like you to do today. Please remember that although you are continuing your learning at home, your timetable is going to look very different from how it would look at school. Please take time to engage in other activities such as family time, outdoor play, jobs around the house etc.


Maths - Adding 3 digit and 2 digit numbers


Use column addition to add together the 2 numbers. Remember to start adding in the ones column before moving on to the tens and hundreds. When the answer is greater than 9, you will have to exchange. We record the exchanged amount underneath the column addition. 


English - Diary writing

This week we will be applying the skills we learnt when writing Arthur's diary to our own. In your pack there is a diary booklet with some lines however you also have a blank exercise book where you can write as this will not hae enough space for a lot of you! Can you include fronted adverbials followed by a comma (e.g. This morning,)? A question or exclamation sentence? Paragraphs to show a change in time or place?


Positive posts

One of my favourite parts of teaching is hearing and seeing all the kind and wonderful things the children in my class get up to both at home and school. Even though we are not at school at the moment and especially given the unusual time we are in, I would still like to hear about kind and lovely things you have done or seen. Every Friday I will upload a selection of positive things to our class blog. Please send me photos or write an email to let me know what kind and helpful things you have done, or seen others do, so I can add a selection to the blog.


Finally, don't forget that I would love to send your home learning - I can still add points to TrackIt Lights from home!


Have a fantastic day,

Miss Usherwood
