If your child is isolating, we will post or deliver a set of CGP workbooks for them to use during their period of isolation.   You can use these workbooks to do as much or as little as you like - we understand that different parents have different needs in terms of their own work and responsibilities.  We would aim for the children to do a page from each book a day, but recognise that this may not always be possible.  Children should bring the books back with them when they return to school, thank you.

Please keep the children reading each day using the books on Active Learn or books you have at home - we can't send reading books home while the children are isolating, sorry.

We have listed below some maths and English activities your child can try while they are waiting for their workbooks to arrive - these should mostly be revision activities.   If your child has special educational needs, you may need to dip into a different year group and your child's teacher can advise on this if you email them or contact the school office by phone.

Some of the activities below are printable but we have tried in the main to make them accessible whether you have access to a printer or not.

Year Three 

Maths activities to try - 

  • practice reading the time on analogue and digital clocks.  Can your child work out when their favourite programme is on and how long it lasts?
  • practice making different amounts using coins and notes.  If a toy costs £4, how much change would you get from £10?  What about if it cost £4.50?  £4.25?
  • practice counting in 2s,5s,10s and, when your child is confident with this, in 3s,4s,6s,8s.  Can they count in 10s if they start at a different number?  e.g 12,22,32,42 etc.  Can they count in 100s from any number?  2,102,202,302 ...
  • roll a dice three times to make a three-digit number - 145, 236 etc.  Make 6 of these numbers then order them from smallest to largest.  If your child finds this tricky, start with 2 digit numbers like 26, 45 etc.

Addition and subtraction activities below can be done using the hundreds, tens and ones pictures in the printables section.  If you can't access a printer, use flat lego blocks as 100s,  long lego rods as tens, small lego cubes as ones or anything similar.

  • practice writing the numbers they made with the dice in numerals and in words - two hundred and thirty-six etc.
  • make a three-digit number by rolling the dice, then make a second number the same way.  Add them together.  (there is a sheet you can use without printing it off in the printables.  
  • in the same way, make two three-digit numbers but this time, decide which is bigger.  Take the smaller one away from the bigger one.

Year Four 

Maths activities to try - 

  • practice reading the time on analogue and digital clocks.  Can your child work out when their favourite programme is on and how long it lasts?  Can they write the digital time to match the time on an analogue clock?  Do they know how many minutes in an hour?  seconds in a minute?  hours in a day?
  • practice making different amounts using coins and notes.  If a toy costs £14, how much change would you get from £20?  What about if it cost £14.50?  £14.25?
  • practice counting in 3s,4s,6s,8s and, when your child is confident with this, in 7s and 9s.  Can they count in 50s and 25s?  Can they count in 1000s from any number?  2,1002,2002,3002 ...
  • roll a dice four times to make a four-digit number - 3145, 2436 etc.  Make 6 of these numbers then order them from smallest to largest.  If your child finds this tricky, start with 2 digit numbers like 26, 45 etc. then three digit numbers.

Addition and subtraction activities below can be done using the thousands, hundreds, tens and ones pictures in the printables section.  If you can't access a printer, use flat lego blocks as 100s,  long lego rods as tens, small lego cubes as ones or anything similar.
