Summer Term 2 Week 7 (W/C 13/07/2020)

 

Hello everyone for the last time this academic year!  Can you believe we’ve actually made it?  I would like to congratulate each and every one of you – children and adults - for all that you have achieved in such challenging circumstances.  I think it will be a year that we will never forget.  I am so sad that we are coming to the end of the school year and we cannot come together to celebrate all of our successes.  Our time together was cut short and I truly hoped that we would have another opportunity to have fun in the classroom together.  Sadly, it wasn’t meant to be.  Please remember that you are all very special and that I have enjoyed our time together and don’t forget – I’m only next door if you need me!  –

It was lovely to say goodbye to some of you on our last zoom today and for you to meet Mr Richards.  I know he is really looking forward to meeting you in September.  Once again, thanks for all the work that you continue to upload on the padlets and all that you are doing at home.  You are amazing! 

Enjoy the last week of term, but most importantly, have a great summer holiday and let’s hope life can get back to normal in the not too distant future. 

Stay safe everyone x

The weather is set to improve a little, so let’s get outside and make some memories.  I have attached a resource from the Wildlife Trust which gives some great ideas – how many can you complete?

Happy Half Term Everyone!

 

I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful weather and spending time with your families.

 

We have worked so hard this half term that I thought I’d give you a week off!  However, some of you may still like to keep your brains active and so I’ve attached a few activities that you might like to do.

 

Don’t forget to enter our art competition and Euan’s great ‘Wild Card’ idea means that you can draw, paint, sculpt and create whatever you want!  I can’t wait to see your winning entries.

There are three key themes to the project, which are Helpers and Heroes, Your New Normal and Acts of Kindness. Look at the link below for more details. If you fancy entering, please share your photograph on the Year 4 Legendary Lockdown Achievement Padlet.

Our virtues continue to be 'Eloquent and Truthful'.  How have you been eloquent and truthful this week?  Lots of you were eloquent when you communicated on our zoom chat this week – we are getting better at taking turns to speak and listen – well done!

 

Maths

This week the theme is multiplication and division.  Take your time, remember all that we have done this year and I have attached some place value counters and boards for you to print off and use to help you with division – remember to share in equal amounts!

Can I remind everyone to keep practising on TT Rockstars.  There are no set tasks this week, so you can go on and play whatever section you like.  Let's see if we can climb up the local schools' leader board - we are currently 6th.

Reading – Much better last week well done!  Please continue to read your own books if you have one, if you’ve read them all, then try reading an ebook on the https://home.oxfordowl.co.uk/  website.  There is also a ‘Sound Waves’ reading comprehension on the Padlet that links nicely with Science this half term.  I’m sure you can remember which star you normally do.  If you feel like challenging yourself, then try one with more stars.

Science – This week’s science activity looks at the science of sound and how we hear sound vibrations.  You can choose to produce a video of yourself explaining how this happens or complete a poster/leaflet explaining to a younger sibling or year group – it’s up to you.  Please upload any work you do for this to the Year 4 Legendary Lockdown Achievements Padlet above.  Thanks.

It's been great to see some of you sharing your work on the padlet's.  I've loved being able to look at and mark your work again!  Please continue to upload your work, either as a PDF or as a photograph from your smartphone.

 

Weekly Worship:

Dan and Emily from Onelife Music will be creating engaging, lively and prayerful retreats on youtube each week. This link will be available in the class page weekly. Try to make some time  for family prayer this week and join in with the beautiful songs and prayers. I hope that you will be strengthened by it.

RE Project

Hello Year 4 and welcome back after the Easter holidays. We hope you are all safe and well and enjoying this wonderful weather that we are having!  We are all looking forward to being back together again, but in the meantime we thought we’d set you some work for the Summer Term.

We’ve created Padlet documents for you to share your work with us and we can’t wait to see it.  All you need to do is download the app and share your work!

 

Summer Term Week 1

Maths

You can still go onto Gareth Metcalfe’s www.iseemaths.com website as extra work he has some great ideas, however this term we’d like you to focus on using White Rose Maths Home Learning website as this covers everything that we would be doing using our Power Maths workbooks.  Make sure you look at the daily video first https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ and then have a go at the workbook pages. Take photos of your work and share it on Padlet.

Monday’s work - https://wrm-13b48.kxcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/homelearning/year-4/Lesson-1-Y4-Summer-Block-1-WO1-Make-a-whole-2020.pdf

Maths Padlet - https://padlet.com/jraymond18/nna6zxl0r6l1zahi

English – Spellings

We will continue to use Twinkl spellings for Summer Term.  There is a presentation for each week and then your usual word search and handwriting practise.

Mrs Raymond’s group – adding the prefix -inter

Mrs Murphy’s/Mrs Stanley’s group – the suffixes –ment, -ness and –ful

Spellings Padlet - https://padlet.com/jraymond18/q6o4ujsdnaq5b1z1

 

English – Writing

We will continue this week to think about our class text – Charlotte’s web.  There are lots of suggested activities for you to do on our class pages, however we would like you to focus on the CLPE document identifying 5 key areas.

The five key areas covered in the activities are:

  • Explore it: Reading of text and/or illustrations and questions to develop children's awareness of language and vocabulary, including how this can be used for effect.
  • Illustrate it: Drawing tasks to develop children's visualisation skills - a key aspect of comprehension.
  • Talk about it: Questions or talking points to support children's understanding of key parts of the text, encouraging them to refer back to the text to support their ideas.
  • Imagine it: Talking points and questions that encourage deeper responses to texts, thinking beyond the text and linking to real life knowledge and understanding.
  • Create it: A range of different ideas for writing in response to a text, developing children's imagination and creative ideas.

Please see the attached file and again upload your work to the Padlet document.  We can’t wait to see what you produce!

English – Reading and Grammar

Please continue to use the Classroom Secrets Kids website for reading comprehension, they have some great resources and the online quizzes are perfect!  Details of how to logon are under the Home learning part of the school website.
