Happy Monday (22/06/20) :-)

Good Morning Holkham,

I hope you all had a great weekend. You can find this week’s ‘Home Learning Grid’ here…Year 3 and 4 22nd June 2020

Remember that it is on the front page of the website should you need to find it again quickly and I’m at the other end of an email if you have problems opening the PDF. Please don’t feel you must complete all of these activities, they are just there to give you and your grown ups inspiration for learning opportunities. Please try and do as many as you possibly can!


This week you will be writing your own wish story for your ‘Hot Task’

  • Firstly, I would like you to at your boxing up from last week where you innovated your own story (link below if you haven’t managed it yet). Tell your story to an adult out loud, does it have a beginning middle and end? Does your story make sense? Does it include a wish? Have you described your main character? You could write their feedback down to help you. 
  • Next, Draw your story plan to make sure you have the story embedded in your brain. Make sure you know how your main character is going to be saved.
  • After that, check your spellings in a dictionary and begin to write your ‘Hot Task’.
  • Finally, in a different coloured pen/pencil, go through your ‘Hot Task’ with an adult and correct your spellings and grammar with their help.

If you have missed any of the previous weeks learning on planning your story. You can find it in the links below.

You are continuing to work on angles and the properties of 2D shapes. Remember to use the angles song from our Maths Meetings.


We are going to continue learning about matter and will be moving on to learning about gasses. Have a look at the links and videos below to help you.

Topic (Rotten Romans)

This week I would like you to illustrate your own Gladiator –

This about what you know, and what you need to find out before you start drawing and labelling.

What is a gladiator? What was there job? Can you list their equipment? These words may help you, helmet, arm protection, leather strapping, shorts, padded cloth, leg protection, leather sandal, spear and shield. 

Label the Roman Gladiator

Other Learning

If you didn’t get chance last week. I’d like you to have a go at Roman Numerals this week too. Have a look at this video and then see if you can write down the numbers 1-20 for me.


I have uploaded more learning to Education City into a folder called ‘Holkham Home Learning 22/06/20′. I will keep the ’15/06/20 folder’ open so that you can still access anything from there if you haven’t yet completed it.

Don’t forget to give your Tackling Tables and Twinkl’s Times Table check a practice and learn your Year 3/4 statutory spellings too. Remember to look, say, cover, write and check each one until you get super fast and accurate. The focus spellings are on your under Monday’s English on the Home Learning Grid.



When you are reading for 10 minutes each day, ask your grown ups to challenge you with comprehension questions at the end of each page (comprehension question can be found in previous blogs or online).

If you would like additional reading comprehension resources you can find some here… Reading Booklets


A note for grown ups

Remember that you can (but do not have to) access learning resources from The Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize which they are adding to daily.
