Fielding Primary School and Nursery

Moving up, Year 3 to Year 4

From 3rd July click here for videos from your new class teachers

Learning at home

As you know children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 are coming back to school soon. They will be in smaller classes. This means some of our teachers will be teaching new classes. For those of you who have to stay at home for now, a different teacher will be reading your emails and checking your work, but don’t worry it’s the same email address to contact them and they have already found out so much about you!


Welcome from your new teacher videos:


3H and 3F home learning will be overseen by Miss Watson

3P home learning will be overseen by Miss Krawiec

3S home learning will be overseen by Mrs Gleeson


Learning for the week will be updated every Monday.


Our teachers use Oak National Academy lessons and resources as the main way to provide learning at home while Fielding is closed.  Sometimes they will add extra links from BBC Bitesize and other websites to support the Oak National Academy material.


Click here to access Oak National Academy lessons.


The Oak National Academy English and maths lessons can be found by clicking on the link to the online classroom. Worksheets can be accessed online, clicking on the green dots at the bottom of each screen. They will also be available by the end of each Monday to download. Click here for worksheets.


Expectations for learning at home:

Each week children should complete:

  • an English lesson, every day, from Oak National Academy
  • a maths lesson, every day, from Oak National Academy
  • a foundation subject (not maths or English), as per links below
  • science, if listed below


Sending work to your child's class teacher

Children can complete and return, via email, the application task for maths and writing each week.

At the end of each foundation subject’s learning journey, your child can photograph and return their learning as detailed below.

The Oak National lessons are pre-recorded so they can be accessed at any time.

Your child will need a pen/pencil and access to paper or an exercise book.


Please see our curriculum overview to find out what your child is learning now and how that fits in to their wider learning:

This week’s foundation subject: Design and Technology

  • Learning Journey: Is a pulley or counterbalance more effective at transporting water?
  • Knowledge Organiser
  • Overview: Over the last few weeks, you have been learning about different types of simple machines, focusing on pulley and lever systems. Counterweights can be used with simple machines to help lift a heavy load more easily. The objects are then in counterbalance. One example of this is the Shaduf (or Shadoof), which was used in Ancient Egypt as an irrigation tool (it helped move water to crops) and is still used in some countries today. Other machines that use counterweights include: some funfair rides, lifts/elevators, some trebuchets during the Middle Ages and cranes.
  • Task: Over the next two weeks, your task is to create your own example of a counterbalance system (this could be your own Shaduf) and present it in any way you choose. You may choose to present it as a labelled diagram, written explanation or model. Use the links below to learn more about how these systems work. You may wish to refer to the knowledge organiser (above) for key vocabulary and a picture of a Shaduf.

    • For facts about the Shaduf, click here.
    • For a video demonstrating the parts of a Shaduf and how it works, click here.
    • For a video demonstrating how a trebuchet used a counterweight, click here.
  • Submission: Please e-mail your work in any format you choose to your class e-mail address by Monday 13th July.


Optional learning

The application tasks for writing and maths can be emailed to your child’s class teacher to their email address: (change the xx to class name, year group number and class letter eg 3S, all upper case).

Teachers will respond with feedback, replies may take up to 3 days.

Teachers will not respond during evenings, weekends, school holidays or when they are working in school.

Teachers will use any work your child emails to assess their learning for this term. We would like to know what your child is working on at home, so if teachers do not receive an email from you or your child they may contact you.


UN Sustainable Goals

This year in school we have been exploring the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and how we can play our part as global citizens.  Recently Earth School was launched which is a 30-day home-schooling journey to connect children to nature.

If you have enjoyed our SDG sessions in school, check out the daily quests – you can choose to watch the videos and have a go at the suggested quizzes and activities.

Have a go at the Fielding weekly Music challenge on the music page of the website. Click here.



It is important to look after your physical and mental health during this difficult time and staying physically active is a great way of doing that. Although many of us are practising social distancing and staying at home more than we may do normally, there are still lots of things you can do at home to keep your physical activity levels up. Below are 2 very good resources to get you started. Please let Mr Thomas know via email if you have any questions or suggestions.

For the coming months we are also going to change the criteria for our Fielding Sporting Stars page on the website. We want to see videos or photos of what you are doing at home in order to stay active. It could be taking part in one of the ideas below, doing some cosmic yoga or a fitness video online or absolutely anything else.

Also keep an eye out for the new ‘Fielding’s Always Active’ Challenge which will be coming soon to the website.

Real PE at home includes an online programme which supports families to be active, play and learn together. It includes a programme specifically for children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 with 12 themes, 6 areas, over 250 activities and challenges and 1000s of hours of fun and activity. This programme is also great for family play and fun.

It also includes a programme for children in Key Stage 2, with daily and weekly guidance provided for both programmes (starting from next week) in addition to an option to choose your own themes and activities.



Children have the choice  to read a recommended reading book. The list is below and also in reading planners. More information about reading can be found here:

Once the children have read a book, they should complete one of the activities of their choice outlined below. These can be completed in the blue book that children have been given. 


Activity Choices (they can be completed more than once):

1. Compare the book to another book you have read. What was similar? What was different? Think about characters/setting and events.

2. Draw a picture of your favourite character and write 5 words or phrases to describe their personality and 5 words/phrases to describe their appearance.

3. As you are reading, list any unfamiliar words and write their meaning.

4. If you could make one change to the story, what would it be and why?

5. Make a note of 3 of your favourite sentences and explain why you like them.

6. Complete a 'story S' which outlines the main events of the story.

Times Tables Rockstars!

Times Tables Rockstars is a online programme we have introduced to encourage children to have fun with multiplication facts while improving fluency, recall and speed. Children can access it in their own time on any IOS, Android or Windows device.

What is it?

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of  times tables practice. This programme has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 7 years in over 4500 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.

How does it work?

Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of your child so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each child is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until they have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.

Is this instead of the times table challenge completed in class?

No, this is to supplement the times tables challenge, giving children a fun way to practise and challenge themselves.

How do I log in?

Log in here:, use your child'd details that came home at the end of the Summer Term, lost them? Speak to your child's class teacher.
