Good morning to all my lovely year 4s!
I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed some of the sunshine while maintaining social distancing, I managed to go out for a couple of nice runs in the sunshine. Who tuned in to the body coach for the daily PE session this morning? we had fun trying it out in the classroom last week. He is on every morning at 9am.
Keep your eye on this page for some activities to keep your learning going over this week. I will be posting suggestions to keep you busy!
I would like you to write a diary for every day this week. You can use the green book you have, any other paper or you can use a computer to record it electronically. You do not need to write loads each day, remember to think about quality over quantity! Try to summarise the key/interesting things from each day. To challenge yourself can you include a 'dropped in clause' or really interesting adjectives? Don't forget to edit your writing to ensure that capital letters and full stops are all in the correct place.
Please remember to read a book for at least 20 minutes a day. Complete your reading record book with a brief summary of what you have read. Discuss with an adult what has happened, what do you think will happen next? What was your favourite part of what you read. Were there any bits or words you didn't understand?
Samuel Pepys was a diary writer who recorded events in London during a very interesting time. He recorded his own feelings and personal observations. Watch this quick film to find out more about him then have a go at the reading comprehension from Twinkl. (parents - the stars on the sheet indicate difficulty level, three stars being the most difficult. As this is a resource intended for KS1 I would suggest you all use the three star version if you can. Some of our class will need a little more support with that but please do feel free to use any of the three versions as you see fit.)
I will post all the knowledge organisers for the topics we have covered this year. Please further your knowledge and understanding by doing some research there are loads of great videos on BBC Bitesize or YouTube and don't forget to use the Curriculum Visions website for a store of non fiction books.
Welcome to year four!
I do hope that everyone has had a lovely restful holiday and are now ready for a fantastic year. Our topic this term is chocolate sensation, we will be looking at the history of chocolate and linking this with a study of Mayan civilisation. Our class text this term will be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and we will also be studying the life and works of Roald Dahl.
PE days for this term are Tuesday and as from next week we will be going swimming every Wednesday until Christmas. Please make sure that you have a full kit in school for each PE and swimming session.
As you are aware we reviewed our school homework policy at the start of last year. Regular reading at home really helps children to develop in many areas of their education, wellbeing and mental health and is therefore a really important part of your regular homework. Please continue to record what you have read each time in your log book. There will also be spellings and times tables to practice at home and talk homework when we are leading up to a longer piece of writing.
Every Thursday Mrs Burke will be teaching the class science, Spanish, spelling, punctuation and grammar and Mrs Owen will continue to teach music.
We are very much looking forward to this year and working with you all. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Either call the office to make an appointment or send us an email.
Mrs Atkinson and Mrs Burke.
