Good morning, Mercury!


How’s it going?  I hope you are all well and working hard!


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



Year 4/Year 3/Table 2

  • Read this story with an adult: Trickster Tales (this website is free but will need a login): An audio is available to listen to alongside. Re-read each page out loud after listening to the audio. I am really sorry – I tried to copy the text to save you joining, as I do most weeks, but couldn’t with this!
  • Discuss what happened in the story.  Read it again. After re-reading the story, re-tell it in your own words. Practise your sentences out loud before writing them down.
  • Use these sentence openings to help:
  • One morning …
  • After that …
  • Then …
  • Meanwhile …
  • It wasn’t long before …
  • Later on …
  • In the end …
  • Check spelling and punctuation in each sentence together.
  • You could present your story as a book and add some pictures/illustrations.
  • Read your story out loud to a family member or via an online video platform to other family members, e.g. grandparents. Ask them to say what they like about your story… and send a video to me, too!

Please work through the activity document files – 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.
