Happiness is……. 
 
Happiness is spending time with family having lots of fun 
Happiness is drinking tea and eating chocolate buns. 
 
Happiness is going on a walk with my mum 
And bringing along Toby who likes to run. 
 
 
Happiness is playing with my friends at the park 
And we never play out in the dark. 
 
Happiness is going to meet Mickey Mouse 
Oh how I wish he could come to my house. 
 
 
By Chloe 
Happiness is playing my x-box 
 
It is playing football outside 
 
Happiness is when my magazine arrives 
 
And cooking dinner 
 
Happiness is going on holidays 
 
Feeling excited 
 
Eating pasta 
 
Knowing my family love me 
 
Happiness is being me 
 
And knowing there are more adventures to come.

Welcome to our P3/4 HOME LEARNING ZONE. Parents please read the letter to parents below and P3/4s have their own special letter where I encourage them to write to their friends using the top tips and format. SImply click on the red text and the documents will open. I will be posting tasks on this web page on a weekly basis. The tasks will be a mixture of purple mash actvities - which will be set up as 'To Dos' on your child's account - and activities which can be assessed from here. I can be contacted on jpoots442@c2kni.net if any of the children would like to send samples or pictures of their work. Daily tasks will be set but these can be completed at any stage during the week. Please stay safe and remember we do not expect you to be teachers. Spend time learning together and let the children show you what they can already do. I will give you links to more reading and web resources below.

Week beginning 15th June 2020 
This week we continue our adventures around the world by looking at life in the oceans. Last Thursday was Ocean Day so there is plenty of information for us to find out about sea cows and spanish dancers and the beauty of our oceans. Did you know that 97% of Earth's water is in the oceans?  
First we can watch 4 mnutes of BBC bitesize Animals that live under the sea. 
You can watch the oceans 3D trailer on https://www.bbcearth.com/oceans/ 
Discover earth kids if you click on the earth kids. You can watch 4 minutes of diving with dangerous bull sharks or find out about the world's biggest shark with a giant mouth. So much to do without having to print out or read a thing to get you started.  
And now a fact for all our Mums and Dads..Did you know that 63% of the people in the UK said they would rather swim with sharks than do the ironing!!? 
Also for parents. If anyone is running out of reading materials there is a 30 day free trial with Reading Eggs available up until the end of the month. Alongside many activities there are a host of books to read in the library section. Simply click start once you put in your child's name and there are lots of books on our world especially, lots of excellent non-fiction in particular if this interests your child. To take advantage of this you supply your email address and a password and they then send you the link in. It does end after the month and you do not give any bank details. I am using it myself and my children are enjoying the books. More than one child can use it at the same time.

She is now well through the book but scroll down and start reading from Chapter 1...I too am going to have to play catch up on the chapters but this could be an interesting read for some of you. Click on the red link to enter into a new world. 
From J.K. Rowling 
"I had the idea for The Ickabog a long time ago and read it to my two younger children chapter by chapter each night while I was working on it. However, when the time came to publish it, I decided to put out a book for adults instead, which is how The Ickabog ended up in the attic. I became busy with other things, and even though I loved the story, over the years I came to think of it as something that was just for my own children.Then this lockdown happened..........." 
Also there is an Art Competition 
J.K. Rowling is inviting you to help illustrate The Ickabog for her. Every day when chapters of the story are uploaded, she will be making suggestions for what you might like to draw or paint to illustrate the story as it goes along.

Reading:Purple Mash 'To do's set. 
Spellings as normal 
Starting this week I have also included links to CORBETT PRIMARY MATHS video tutorials. Please take the time to use CORBETT MATHS if you can. I have attached direct access from his webpage so hopefully all you have to do is click on the web address. Personally I think they are good resources to use and there are lots of useful tools including division. I hope to use bbc bitesize too in the coming weeks. This is also a learning curve for me as I try to make life as manageable as possible for us all. 
Mental maths: this is a new idea so that we can cater for the various levels within the class. I encourage you to use https://topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/daily10 CLICK ON THIS LINK AND IT SHOULD OPEN! Level 2 is P3/4. Level 3 or 4 will be suitable for P4. CLICK HERE FOR THE HELP SHEET. Our children will know if it is too dificult or easy. Pencil and paper is needed to write down the 10 answers. In Level 3 there are 9 different sections:division, digit values,ordering,subtraction,addition,doubles/halves, multiplication,fractions. For example I suggest that Level 3 fractions is set to 1/4 of the amount lined to 4 tables. I also set the manual setting where I click the next button to move on to the next question. Thereore ther is no pressure to answer! Once the 10 questions are answered the chdilren can check their answers.REVEAL ALL answers. There is the option to play again or go back to the menu and change to another section.There are also many games to play on Purple Mash 'To do's.
