This could be by reading the text to your child or by reading a paragraph, or page, to each other. Look at the vocabulary in these chapters. Find exciting words and new words from the text and write them down e.g. tufts, matted, wise etc.
Discuss meanings of these words together.
Look up some of the new words you have found in a dictionary or by using Word Hippo https://www.wordhippo.com/
Look in a thesaurus or Word Hippo to find synonyms and write these as a word bank.
Ask your child to write the new words they have found in a sentence.
Create and write ten sentences. Check spelling and punctuation in each sentence together.
For Maths, these are the following Power Maths tasks for Years 3 and 4.
