Please encourage your child to read for at least 15 minutes, at least five times per week. Please record what you have read in your reading record.

Christmas songs

Like reading, spelling is very important for your writing. Spellodrome will have targeted spelling lists each week linking to the lessons in class. Challenge yourself and see how many points you can earn!

Home Learning Menu

Over the next 3 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may choose to do one fifteen and a five-point activity or you could do two ten points; you could also choose to do four five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below.

Match pictures of unusual foods to their country of origin using a world map to locate them Note: Examples of foods to locate on a paper or online map could include deep-fried tarantula from Cambodia; durian from China; escamoles from Mexico; lutefisk from Norway; raw blood soup from Vietnam; casu marzu from Italy; escargots from France or haggis from Scotland.


Have a go at making your own dye, using a strongly coloured fruit or vegetable. Try beetroot, carrot, tea, spinach or strawberry. Try dip-dying an old white T-shirt or handkerchief into your coloured dye. Write a reflection to explain what happens and what you learnt. Did some fruits/vegetables work better than others?


Using a dice, or selecting some digits, make up some different 2/3-digit numbers. Can you then add these together using the different methods we’ve learnt, including the number line, partitioning and the column method.

You will need: An egg, white vinegar and a glass jar.

Method: Carefully place the egg in the jar. Pour the vinegar over the egg until it is completely covered. Watch as the eggshell starts to bubble (take photos if you like?). Check on your egg regularly and record how it is changing. After 24-48 hours, gently remove the egg from the vinegar and rinse it with water. Compare how the egg feels and looks to an intact egg. Write a reflection of what you found out!


Create a real or imaginary fruit.

You could draw this, create it out of clay, create a potato stamper, or anything else you can think of!

Colour your fruit with interesting patterns to make it look weird and wonderful. You could then make up a bizarre or funny name for the fantastical fruit and describe how it would taste.

Before you start, have a look at some interesting fruits such as:

Sharon fruit, dragonfruit, starfruit and lychees.


Choose 5 of the year 3/4 words and use different strategies to practice spelling these words. You could practise by:

Word pyramids

Rainbow letters

Look, cover, write, check

Challenge yourself by putting each of the 5 words into a sentence to show you understand the meaning.
