Suggested Tasks – 22/11/ 21

Here are some suggested tasks for students in 3/4 to practise independently  today at home:


Today you will work on independent reading and writing or drawing a response. You should spend about 20-30 minutes reading, and then about 15 minutes on your response. Today you are going to visualise. Choose a part of your reading that you can picture in your mind, perhaps a setting, or a character. Draw a detailed picture showing how this looks in your mind. Write a sentence or two explaining why you chose this part.

·       Choose a book from your home collection

·       Log in to Epic – if you need your class code, email your teacher or check with them in Webex

·       Listen to a story read aloud on Storybox online:, (user name: mppsroccs, password: mpps.


Today your writing task is to write a letter to someone real or fictional. Think about someone that you would like to find out more about or share some ideas with. Remember to include:

·       Who the letter is to and the date

o   Dear…..

·       Introduce why you are writing

o   My name is…. and I am writing to ask you/tell you….

·       Tell them some information or your thoughts and ideas

o   I have a great idea for….

·       Ask some questions

o   Why do you think….?

·       Conclude the letter by thanking them for reading and signing your name

o   Thank you for taking the time to read my ideas, From ….

When you have finished, check your punctuation, spelling and make sure your handwriting is neat!


Today for maths it is time to start getting ready for our unit in statistics and probability! You will be logging onto Mathletics to complete at least two assigned tasks found under “SP Data”. If you do not have your Mathletics log on please contact your classroom teacher.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to practise our skip counting patterns and multiplication facts!

Choose the pattern you are working on, and how you would like to practise.

  • Whisper count – count the ‘in between’ numbers in a whisper and then say the pattern number out loud (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9etc)
  • Use an online interactive 100 grid or number line to practise the pattern:
  • Set a timer and write out the pattern. See how far you can get in one minute then aim to beat your own score.
  • Sing the pattern to a fun tune and make up actions
  • Find a counting song (there are many available online) that you like and put it on and sing along to practise
  • Draw an array with rows of the pattern number and write the counting pattern down the side of each row
