Hello, Mercury Class!


It’s the end of the week! Thank you for your hard work. Make sure you ask for your Friday wages!


Please see, below, our remote learning tasks for today.




Enjoy today’s Story Time at: and on facebook at 9am.


Year 4/Year 3/Table 2

  • You have looked at some extracts this week from books by David Walliams. You might have already read some or all of his books. Do you have a favourite? Why is it your favourite? If you haven’t read any before, which was your favourite extract from this week? Which one made you want to read more?
  • Write a short ‘emoji’ review for three of David Walliams’ books, or for three of the extracts read this week. Choose some emojis to help with your review. You can find some emojis here:  
  • E.g. One of my favourite books by David Walliams is Gangsta Granny. I like this book because it is so funny. There are lots of parts that make me laugh, for example when Ben and Granny meet the queen! This part made me (insert emoji here!)
  • Check your writing for spelling and punctuation. You could share the reviews with family members or your friends.



Year 4/Year 3/Table 2

This week we need to work through the activities below – either by looking at the screen and writing the answers down or by printing off the sheets. Follow the instructions carefully and make sure you look through the sheets before you begin, so you can find the answers, extra support materials and the different levels of task - Mild (easier) and Hot (harder). There may also be activities to work with somebody else on. If there is a PowerPoint Presentation, then watch this first, listening to the teaching at the same time. All the answers are provided.

Other Activity

Thursday/Friday Minibeast Mini Project Task!

Choose a patch of ground in your garden or out in the community to explore - and dig! Very carefully, collect and observe the mini-beasts you find within the habitat.  Draw a quick sketch of each mini-beast you see. Use the three documents below to help you classify each mini-beast and try to name/label each part of the body.

Choose one mini-beast and observe it closely. Practise drawing one part of it - several times - adding shading, texture and tone as required.  You could even take a photograph of your chosen part and practise editing the photograph – add filters, edit light, tone etc.

Ask a parent to upload your work to facebook or email it to me.
