Year 4/Year 3/Table 2

This week’s theme is: The World of Walliams! Enjoy a week of exploring a variety of books by David Walliams, comparing characters, watching clips of the screen adaptations, reviewing his work and lots more! I have set this for all children as I think they will all love it. Some children may need more help from their parents or might need to pick and choose, a little over, which tasks they will attempt and adapt to suit.

  • Below are various opening extracts of David Walliams’ books. Read through the extracts and think about the characters that are introduced.
  • Make a table like the one below and note down what you find out about the characters in: Bad Dad, Awful Auntie, Gangsta Granny and Grandma’s Great Escape.

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.

Y4: Column Subtraction, perimeter, area

Y3: Adding and Subtracting Multiples, symmetry and shape

Table 2: Counting, multiples, shape


Other Activity

For this few days, I am giving you a small topic that all KS2 classes will be getting involved in:

Design, Make and Evaluate a Nature Picture Frame (then take a selfie inside your frame!)

  • Using the Design Booklet and Examples below, you need to look at different types of picture frames to decide on the type you would like to design.
  • Think about structures and how picture frames stand.
  • Explore and collect natural materials for creating a picture frame.
  • Make and evaluate the fame, using the criteria you came up with.  Please send me a picture of the completed product.
  • When we return to school, all children will bring their frame into school with their favourite Lockdown photograph in it and we will create a big display of them all!
