Dragonfly Class – Wednesday 29th April

Well I don’t know about you but I ended up wetter than an otter’s pocket yesterday! However a little rain is much needed. I’ve learned a new word too: ‘petrichor’ which is the earthy scent when rain falls on dry soil. I wonder if you’ve smelt it?

Her are today’s learning activities:

  1. Reading:  Check out today’s activity on Reading Eggs. Also continue 20 minutes reading of your current book.
  1. Spellings: Access the link below for your year group and learn the set list. You could print the handwriting sheet OR present it in your Homework Pack.

Year 5 Spelling & Handwriting

Year 4 Spelling &Handwriting

Year 3 Spelling & Handwriting

Challenge: Can you get your words into conversations you have today?

3. Maths: Access White Rose Maths and complete the tasks for Summer Term Week 2, Day 3.

Year 5 White Rose Maths

Year 4 White Rose Maths

Remember – if you find it too tricky (or easy!) feel free to try the daily lesson from a Year 3 (or Year 5/6) page. This is completely fine to do 🙂

4. English: 

Access and follow the Bitesize links below.

Year 4 Apostrophes for Possession

Year 5 Ellipsis

Other ideas for Wednesday:

  • Make sure you get some exercise – a good walk or work out in the garden. I’ll be out for my morning run in the rain the Briar today!
  • PSHE: check out this link and activities all about teamwork.


  • Art / DT : Could you create some art / craftwork linked to nature following yesterday’s science lesson? Please send in anything you make !
  • Violins – You’d normally have violin lessons today so you could haave a practise if you have yours at home.
  • TT Rockstars:  The Inter House Tournament Round 4 continues! Play ‘Battle’ to earn your team points.

I look forward to speaking to many of you on the phone over the next few days! Don’t worry – it’s just a catch up to see how you are and if you have any requests or questions. I look forward to it!

Happy Wednesday,

Miss Whit 🙂
