Before you do anything, make sure you watch the video where I will be introducing the task and reading part of the book to you. 


This week, your writing activity is based on the book 'Stone Age Boy' by Satoshi Kitamura. If you haven't got the book at home, I have uploaded an audio video version below. 


Firstly, I would like you to research what skills and qualities you need to become an archaeologist. After you have done this, you can then begin to write your very own instructions to explain to someone what skills and qualities they would need to have to become an archaeologist. 


I have linked some websites to help with your research and a starter activity to get your brains thinking about imperative verbs (or bossy verbs) that you should try and include in your writing. 


Challenge: Write a sets of instructions for your dream job that you might like to do when you are older or an job that you find interesting.

The focus for this week's maths learning we will continue our consolidation of our learning earlier on in the year based on multiplication and division. Below I have attached the worksheets and the answers so you can mark your own work or have it checked by someone at home. 


Please see the documents below for the relevant worksheets and answer sheets. 




This week we are going to continue to work on some of our arithmetic skills and I have included the answers in the file below so the answers can be checked at the end. Remember to show your working out for all of the answers.  



There are also the TTrockstars and Numbots links below for your children to practice multiplication recall and number bonds as regularly as they can. I have set individual times tables all children to focus on weekly and have set different game types for the children to use and challenge their friends!


Challenge: BBC bitesize have set up daily lessons as part of their home schooling package, why not go on the website on Friday for their 'Friday Maths Challenge' where they will have a number of maths related problems to solve!


Art- Stone Age art

This week I would like you to get creative to produce your own Stone Age themed art through painting. If you haven't got paint you could use any other medium such as pastels/chalk/pencils. Why don't you see if you can create some cave art using tea-stained paper and add your hand prints or animals? Why not collect some pebbles and make your own Stone Age fossils?! 




PSHE- Year 3 to Year 4 transition. As this is the last week of term before we break up for the summer holidays I thought it would be nice for you tell you new teacher about you. It is a chance to write about yourself and what you are looking forward to when you start back at school in September when you enter into Year 4! 


See below the attached booklet.
