If any of the learning is too challenging, please feel free to look at an alternative year group's page. 

I Will Survive by MPL Staff

Take a look and enjoy the MPL staff reworking of Gloria Gaynor's 'I Will Survive'.

Learning From Home

Our aim, during this difficult time is to keep children at MPL thinking hard, gaining knowledge and honing their skills. It is important to help them maintain a routine and retain positive mental and physical health. We must strive to provide a consistent, positive point of contact in what will be a very unsettling time for many children. Please check this page daily for new learning from home activities.

Task 2 – Read through the email and correct the homophones.

Task 3 – Imagine you have morphed into your favourite animal. Write about a day in the life of this new animal version of you.

Task 4 – Write the correct plural of the words in the brackets. Use the ‘Rules of plurals’ sheet to remind you of the rules.

    Year 3- This week you will need to cast your minds to Year 2 when you did fractions.

Task 1- Identify what fraction of shapes are shaded.

Task 2 – match and make fractions.

Task 3 – Find ways of making a whole. E.g. ¼ and ¾ makes 1 whole.

Task 4 – Compare and order fractions.
