Squirrels' Home-Learning Page



Hello to any Squirrels who are working at home for a while!

If there are reasons why you need to be at home instead of in school at the moment, here are lots of tasks to do so that you can keep up with your learning while you're not with us in class.

We're missing you lots and look forward to having you back with the rest of us as soon as you're able!




Each day, remember to practise your tables, read lots and make sure you're in the Green Zone on   and all up to date with  

This Week's Homework   and    This Week's Spellings


If you still haven't yet done it, please make sure you've completed all the homework that's been set this term including the  Christmas Holiday Homework Task To find all the Term 3 Homework, just click on the Homework link above and you'll find everything at the bottom of that page.  If you didn't do the Purple Mash homework and it has expired, don't worry as I'll be resetting it for you.

There are some Purple Mash SPAG and Spelling 2Dos ready for you.

There are new spelling words this week so make sure you're practising those.

We've also been learning about punctuating direct speech. Please work through this PPT and then write a short scene using your play script ideas.


Written Tasks:

Last Monday was Martin Luther King Day - a national holiday in the USA since 1986.

In class, we planned and wrote our own 'I Have a Dream' speech which everyone will be delivering to the class. If you've started this, please finish it and if you weren't well enough to start it last week, then have fun working on it today!
Before you start, have a look at the PPT and then watch the short film Dream On

Read the WAGOLL next and then plan and write your speech.



Guided Reading


Design an A4 Poster of words that relate to Martin Luther King. You might include:

honesty, integrity, courage, honour, dream, freedom, justice, Christian, speech, campaigner, fair…

What other words would be important to add in?

Choose all the words you want to use then think carefully about the lettering, the way you'll fill the space on your paper, the ways the words connect or separate from each other and the colours you'll use.
