Kestrel Class Thu 26th March

For Maths and English, continue to follow the Hamilton lessons if you wish. There’s a range of activities, but feel free to dip in and out of the Hamilton activities and those that I post below.

English –

Please access the reading comprehension attached (attachment a). Read through the text and then answer the questions in your home learning book. It is important that we keep up our comprehension skills as much as possible so we are able to accurately communicate about what we are reading and ensure that we are fully understanding what we have read. With that in mind, keep having lovely conversations about books. Don’t forget to answer the questions using full sentences and use lots of conjunctions to add detail (such as and, because, so).

Maths –

Revising the operation of subtraction:

Have a look at this maths game. (attachment b) It helps you to practise your subtraction. Have a go at creating your own maths game to practise subtraction. Challenge: Get a family member to play it with you! Getting some great feedback for the maths challenges, very satisfying when you get the solution! Stick with it. 🙂

Have a go at one challenge a day:

If you complete the challenge, have a go at writing a similar one of your own.

French –

Go to – the username is wicklewood and the password is wickle01.  If you go into the Beginner section and click the French flag look for Occasions spéciales and then click on Pâques.  Listen to the presentation before trying out the games – always try to repeat the pronunciation when you hear it.  See if you can find out about how Easter is celebrated in France.  


We have been learning about the International Rights of the Child.

Watch the video, then think about what you would fight for if you were able to make a difference.  Would it be for all children to have an education? Or would you want to protest about climate change?    

While you are at home: Are there some little things which YOU could do to make a difference.? Talk to your family about what you could do.  Maybe you can help to ensure more things are recycled, or could you help to cook meals that use up left- overs?
