Daily English Learning activities...

In addition to accessing the live lesson and follow up learning each week day, children should also be keeping up with their daily reading and access to Spelling Shed.  We suggest 10-15 minutes per day on each of these activities during the current national lockdown.  


Children should log in daily to access books in their current book band level on the Oxford Owls Website ( ) 


Our class logins are:


Curie Class - U: 4curie  P: Curie


Moore Class - U: 4moore  P: Moore 


Children can also review books on Purple Mash in a variety of ways - see the link below. 

In English this week...


Log in at 10.30am to our Live Lesson on Teams.  The resources for our English lesson, including the slides used in the presentation, can be found on the relevant Teams channel (page) alongside the assignment. 


Our English learning time in school lasts until 11:50am.  Children can use any extra time they have after they've completed the Teams session, the learning set below for the day and their daily reading and Spelling Shed sessions in either writing a book review or other reading linked activity or in exploring some of the options below in the additional support for English section. 

Some additional activities and support for English...

Below you will find some additional activities to support and extend previous learning


Log in to Spelling Shed.  Play for 10 -15 minutes for each day that you're at home.  Try to vary the word lists that you are practising so that you become confident and proficient in lots of our different spelling patterns, lists and topic words - new lists appear every week so keep practising!


These were the words we learnt last term:

autopilot superhuman subway tongue unique


subheading fatigue grotesque
autograph supermarket subdivide league picturesque
automobile supersonic submerge colleague cheque
autobiography superpower submarine vague antique
automatic     dialogue technique

Spelling activities - use a different combination of spelling list and activity each day


  1. Practise a set of spelling words using pyramid spelling or rainbow spelling techniques
  2. Create a wordsearch using one of the sets of words that we have learnt. 
  3. Create a  cryptic crossword by writing clues for each of the words in a spelling set.  How will you include a word going down as well as words going across?
  4. Write some silly sentences using a set of spelling words.  How many of the Year 3/4 spelling words can you include in this list too?  (Check out the list on our Spelling pages to remind you of the words!) 


Use expanded noun phrases and our spelling words to write some sentences (sensible or silly, you may choose!)

Remember, for our expanded noun phrases we have been using the pattern:


adjective, adjective, noun preposition adjective noun


Prepositions you could choose from include:
