SUMMER 2 - Final week (Yay! We made it!).

Please remember to say an enormous THANK YOU to every adult that has helped you during this challenging time!

We all hope we shall never have to do this again. You have worked so hard! Some of you have continued sending work every single day which has been FANTASTIC! I can't wait to see you all back at school in September in our Upper School Hub.

Have a look at the activities for this week. Some are the same or similar and some are quite different. Try and tackle two or three every day. You can do more if you wish.

MONDAY is our virtual Sports day. If you can't do it then, you can do the activities on a different day but send me the results before Thursday if you can!

Chestnut learning for the week beginning Monday 13th July

You may complete your work in any order and at any time. Choose a variety of activities to fill your days. 

You MUST do all the maths at some point during the week.

You MUST complete at least 3 English activities during the week - that could be a reading or a writing activity.

You could email me to tell me what you have chosen or send me your work or photos of what you chose to do.

You might just want to write me a daily email summary to explain how you have spent your time.

All of this is fine!


1. Read any of your own books. Write a brief description of it to persuade a freind to read it. Consider persuasive language types.

2. Use the link to OXFORD OWL and the class login ( see above).

Choose any books from the 7-9 age group OR have a look at the other ages too. Try to read at least 4 that you have not yet read.

3. Write an advert for a smoothie you have tried or made. How will you persuade others to try it?

4. Create a poster to remind everyone of how to stay safe when back at school in September.

5. Try out TELESCOPIC TEXT to extend the simplest of sentences and phrases into something much more detailed. Start by typing a short sentence such as 'I made tea'. You can then start to build your sentence as each word encourages you to add extra detail once it is highlighted.


6. Watch a film. Write a film review to recommend it to our class. Explain what makes it so good.

7. Complete the End of Year booklet. Keep it and bring it back to me in September!


Here is all the year 3 learning for the week plus the Friday challenge which you will find online.

Here is all the year 4 learning for the week plus the Friday challenge.



Play HIT THE BUTTON at least once a day. Continue to learn your tables and ask somebody at home to do them with you to test yourself. You could even make a grid!


Practise telling the time using the online time games.



Art and DT

1. Make a card (please refer to our Classroom for further instructions!).

2. Make a kite. Research first; find out about the best materials and the best designs. Make and fly your kite.

3. Investigate the work of any artist. Have a go at drawing / painting in the style of that artist.

4. Create a SYMMETRICAL piece of artwork. Think about where the line or lines of symmetry are.

5. Try out pizza making. Use a tortilla wrap as a base. Use tomato puree as the tomato sauce. Add a small amount of topping and finish with a little grated cheese. Grill until golden (ask and adult to help you take it out). Take photos and enjoy!


1. Become an expert on any insect or other minibeast. Find out as much as you can about them.

Present your findings in a slideshow.

2. Find out if any of your garden flowers are making seeds yet. If so, collect some and compare them. If not, have a look at what their seeds may look like and how they are made.



 What kind of Queen was Victoria? When did she reign? What kinds of things happened during her reign?

Start your discovery about here using this link:
