Home Learning week beginning Monday 19th October 2020


Please read any text (online or a book, magazine etc) for at least 20 minutes each day and answer one or all of the questions below, you can write these down or tell someone the answers:

  1. Summarise/sum up what you have read in 20 words or less.
  2. What is your favourite part of the text you have read? Why did you choose this?
  3. Would you recommend this text to a friend? Who would like this? Why do you think they would like this?
  4. Describe your favourite character from a story – what is their appearance and character like?
  5. If you could change one part about what you have read, what would it be and why? (for example – how an online text is laid out on screen, the illustrations that have been used, how the story ends etc)


Using the story of ‘Egyptian Cinderella’ we have been rewriting in class, draw and describe your own version of the character Rhodopis and what she did when the mean characters were nasty to her. In your description try to include fronted adverbials such as:

Early evening, …..

Before sunrise,…..

Outside the pyramid,…..


Quietly, …..


Throughout the week, complete the rest of the story including:

- When she visited her animal friends by the river bank (challenge – can you include dialogue/speech using inverted commas?)

- When the good character gave her a special gift (don't forget to describe this in detail and describe how Rhodopis felt when she received it)

- How the special gift was stolen and who stole it (remember to include exciting verbs and adverbs for example – swooping quickly, sneaking silently)

- How the special gift is returned to Rhodopis.

- Ending to the story.



This week we will continue to look at addition, subtraction and inverse (opposites).

  1. Practise column addition and make up your own questions including a mix of 2, 3 and 4-digit numbers (for example: 463 + 365 = ? 8359 + 87 = ?) You could challenge a grown up to work out answers quicker, and use a calculator to find the correct answers.
  2. Quick recall of one-digit take away one-digit for example: 8 – 5 = 3 is an essential skill for Y3/4. Make some number cards 0-9 (or use a dice, or playing cards if you have any)  and pick 2 at random. Use the smallest number and subtract this from the largest. For example - If you chose 8 and 6, your calculation would be 8-6 and you answer would be 2. You need to practise this so you can do it quickly and accurately.
  3. Practise column subtraction using a mixture of 4, 3 and 2 digit numbers (for example 5234 – 3245=?  7356 – 465 =?)
  4. Inverse. Start of by creating an addition calculation (e.g. 345 + 531 = ? work out the answer using column addition – it equals 876) then write down the other 4 number facts you know from this:

345 + 531 = 876

531 + 345 = 876

876 – 345 = 531

876 – 531 = 345


As a challenge, start with a subtraction calculation and then do the same using the inverse to find the other number facts, for example:


321 – 110 = 211

321 – 211 = 110

211 + 110 = 321

110 + 211 = 321


Have a great week, see you soon.
