NEWSFLASHNEWSFLASH!    NEWSFLASH!

A message from your new teacher in September- Miss Knox!

 

Dear (soon-to-be) Year 5,

                        What a very strange time we have all been having!  This is not the way I would have hoped to have got to know you before September; however, due to lockdown we have not been able to have our usual Move Up Day.  Therefore, I am writing this letter to reassure you that you will be well looked after and able to catch up on anything you missed when you come back into school in Year 5. 

At present I have been teaching some of the Year 6 children and every single one of them have loved being back in school so I hope you will feel the same way after your first day back!  My son is starting Year 5 this September (in his own school) so I know some of you might be excited to see your friends again, some of you might be a bit nervous because you haven’t been in school for so long and some of you might not know how you feel yet.  All of those feelings are perfectly normal and you won’t be the only one feeling that way.

I would love to find out more about everyone in my new Year 5 class.  I have attached a letter that will give you some ideas about the kinds of things you could write to me about.  You can choose whether you want to email the letter via Purple Mash or you could bring the letter in with you in the first week back in September.  You don’t need to use the letter template if you know what you want to write to me.

Now it’s time to wish you all a lovely summer holiday!  My best advice is that you keep up reading or listening to stories through the holidays and keep practising your times tables so you can have a great start to Year 5.

See you in September,

Miss Knox

WRITE A LETTER TO MISS KNOX!

Oxford Owl Reading Books

I have signed up our class to Oxford Owls so that you can find some books to read online from your book band level.

The website is https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

Click on the 'My Class Login' button.  

The username is: Stmariesy4

You then need to choose 'My bookshelf'

You can then choose 'Levels', then 'Book band'.  Look at the colour of your book band in your school reading book and choose a book to read from that level.  They have some books that I don't think I have seen in our school library!  Enjoy reading!

Polish Translation Competition

 

Mrs Filipowska would like to invite any Polish children to take part in this year's 'Polish Spotlight' competition which is a special strand of the prestigious Stephen Spender Prize. The competition is open to all UK citizens and residents and the entry is free. Entrants will be given a selection of poems from which they will be invited to choose one Polish poem to translate into English. They don't have to be fluent in Polish to take part. There are three age categories for entrants: 18-and-under, 14-and-under and 10-and-under.

This is an exciting project and a wonderful opportunity for your pupils to demonstrate not only their translation skills but also to raise their awareness of bilingualism. It would also be a perfect remote learning activity for EAL pupils. Moreover, there are cash prizes and publications to be won, too! The deadline is 17th July 2020.

Please refer to the attached documents for additional information or visit http://www.multilingualcreativity.org.uk/polish-spotlight/  There are videos and links to the poems on this website.  There is a letter and tips on translation on the documents below.  

Good morning Year Four! This is your last week in Year Four! Can you believe it!! I’m really sad that we can’t all see each other before you move up into Year Five but I will see you all soon in September.

I hope that you are all well and ready for another week of fun home learning. Again, I have placed all of this week’s work for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning below.  Make sure that you complete each set of daily tasks and try your best. Make sure that you do your daily exercise and remember to say your prayers.

Monday 13th July

This week we have a new story on Serial Mash (Purple Mash). It’s called ‘Alien Street’. It’s a story about two children called Lucy and Ash.  Each day you will have a chapter to read, an online quiz to do and then an activity to complete! Use your home learning book if needed. Today read chapter one, do the online quiz and then the ‘Annoying family’ activity!

Maths

This week we will continue our work on Position. I have attached a powerpoint under this week’s attachments called ‘Draw on a Grid’. Under the powerpoint there are two sets of activity sheets full of questions linked to positions. On each page there are three levels- D for developing, E for Expected and M for Mastery (the M ones are the trickiest!) For some of these activities you may need to print off the sheets at home or draw the grids in your books. Just do your best.

You need to really concentrate on the powerpoint and think HARD about the questions you are being asked to do! It might be a challenge but you can do it and give it a good go!

Today I would like you to start completing the ‘D’ questions and the ‘E’ questions on the first sheet which is the verbal fluency (VF) sheet. If you feel confident, have a go at the M ones too. Aim to answer eight questions today.

 

R.E

This week is Mrs Robinson’s last week as our Head teacher! For your RE work this week, I would like you to write a special prayer for Mrs Robinson, asking God to look after her and to say thank you for everything that she has done for our school and all of the many families and children she has worked with over the last eighteen years. Why don’t you write your prayer and then decorate it with pictures of Mrs Robinson or decorate it in another way. If you would like to, send me your prayer and I can show it to her. I will print it off and give it to her to take with her. Or if you or your parents are passing school, why not drop it into the front office. I look forward to reading them all.

R.E- St Peter and St Paul

June 29th is the Feast Day of St. Peter and St Paul.

Peter and Paul are two very important characters from the Early Church.

Peter travelled with Jesus throughout His Ministry. Jesus foretold that Peter would be the rock upon which the Church would be built.  Despite Peter’s betrayal of Jesus after His arrest, St Peter led the Apostles, became the first pope.

Paul used to be called Saul when he was Jewish. His job was to capture Christians. One day God spoke to him and he changed his ways. He became a Christian. He is the author of most of the Letters of the New Testament.

Watch these two videos about the two saints.

https://youtu.be/9eRXq-cKmr0 (St Paul)

https://youtu.be/hAx33UScr2A (St Peter)

Your task: From what you have learnt, create two comic strips. One should be about Peter and one should be about St Paul. Use pictures, speech and thought bubbles and short sentences to show what happened to them.

Science 

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all doing well! Thank you to those that have been emailing me with their learning and telling me what you have been doing.

Please click on the link before starting todays work.

 

As lockdown begins to relax in England, I have noticed there has been more people out and about our town. However, I have also noticed a lot more litter. Have you? 

During lockdown, it was mentioned on the news that there is less pollution and we are all doing our bit to help the planet. 

 

Now though, with more people back on the roads etc, we risk our planet becoming dirty again!

Today we are going to r
ecognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things. I would like you to chose an area. This could be your garden, a street, a town centre etc. 

 

We are going to redesign this area so that it is better for the environment. Does it look different in the winter? What is there now? Does any living thing use the space? Does it have any positive impact as it is now? Is there water nearby? A dangerous road? Does it have sunlight or is it in the shade? Who walks past this space? 

Think of 5 different living things (plants, minibeasts and animals) that might use this space if it was changed for the better. What will they need to have there for these living things to use it? (Hedgehogs will need slugs and snails, which will need plants. Bees will need flowering plants. If it is particularly large area, how could humans use it? A bench in the shade?)

On a piece of paper, I would like you to redesign an area that would make it more environmentally friendly. What will you include to help our wildlife? What can we do to make sure people don't litter? Draw your area and label how it will now help the planet. 



Thursday 2nd July 
Good morning everyone! I hope you really thought about the impacts of the environment yesterday. I wonder what changes you might do to help our planet.

Today I have set you a new story activity on Purple Mash. It’s called ‘Time Freeze!’ Each day you will have a chapter to read, an online quiz to do and then an activity to complete! Use your home learning book if needed. Today complete Chapter one activities!

Maths

This week we will continue some work on Statistics which means data or ‘number information’. I have attached a powerpoint under this week’s attachments called ‘Introducing Line graphs’. Under the powerpoint there are two sets of activity sheets full of questions linked to line graphs. On each page there are three levels- D for developing, E for Expected and M for Mastery (the M ones are the trickiest!)

You need to really concentrate on the powerpoint and think HARD about the questions you are being asked to do! It might be a challenge but you can do it and give it a good go!

Today I would like you to start completing the ‘D’ questions and the ‘E’ questions on the first sheet which is the verbal fluency (VF) sheet. If you feel confident, have a go at the M ones too. Aim to answer eight questions today.

If you are finding them tricky- don’t worry. On Purple Mash, look again at the Statistics activities that you have done over the last two weeks to help you. These will be under ‘Maths’.

R.E- World Faiths

This week (today and tomorrow) I would like you to choose a different faith from your own to explore, research and create a poster about. If you are Catholic, it might be Islam or Judaism, Sikhism, Hinduism or Buddhism for example. If you are Muslim, it might be Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism etc. Focus on:

Place of Worship

Celebrations

Customs (how they live their lives and what they do)

Special books and important symbols.

You might like to see what links between your own faith and your chosen world religion there are. For example, do both religions ask people to wear a special religious object or consider the same people from the past to be important?  Making links is ALWAYS important.

Send me your posters and let me know how you have done!

If they are REALLY good (and I mean REALLY good) then when we get back to school, I will put some in a frame and put them up in school!

R.E

Continue working on your posters today. Remember if they are REALLY good (and I mean REALLY good) then when we get back to school, I will put some in a frame and put them up in school!

Again, I have placed all of this week’s work for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning below.  Make sure that you complete each set of daily tasks and try your best. Make sure that you do your daily exercise and remember to say your prayers.

Monday 15th June

English

I have attached a reading task below called ‘A Refugee Camp’. This attachment has everything that you will need for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning. Today, I would like you to read the look carefully at the picture and then answer the questions from the ‘Follow Up’ activity. Answer the questions in your home learning book. Do not complete the other task yet.  Use the title of the story ‘A Refugee Camp’ as your title.

Maths

This week we will continue some work on Statistics which means data or ‘number information’. I have attached a powerpoint under this week’s attachments called ‘Comparisons, Sum and Difference’. These are three very important words in Maths. Under the powerpoint there are two sets of activity sheets full of questions linked to statistics. On each page there are three levels- D for developing, E for Expected and M for Mastery (the M ones are the trickiest!)

Today I would like you to start completing the ‘D’ questions and the ‘E’ questions on the first sheet which is the verbal fluency (VF) sheet. If you feel confident, have a go at the M ones too. Aim to answer eight questions today.

If you are finding them tricky- don’t worry. On Purple Mash, look again at the Statistics activities that you did last week to help you. These will be under ‘Maths’.

R.E

Today you are going to learn about a very special man called Oscar Romero who is now a saint in Heaven (St. Romero) Follow this link to the Cafod website and watch the video clip about him and look at all of the information.

https://cafod.org.uk/Education/Primary-teaching-resources/St-Romero

For your task today I would like you to use the information on this website to create a poster all about Oscar Romero. Use pictures and words to tell me all about him. It would be great to see your posters!

Music

Open up the attachment for your music lesson with Mrs Hypolite. There is a great song on there about a very special lady called Rosa Parks. Enjoy it!

Tuesday 16th June

For today’s task, look at the picture of ‘A Refugee Camp’ again. Remember the attachment is below. Today, I would like you to complete the two ‘Vocab’ activities, Vocab 1 and Vocab 2. Use the title of the story ‘A Refugee Camp’ as your title.

Maths

Today I would like you to look at the statistics powerpoint again on ‘Comparisons, Sum and Difference.’ Now continue working on the questions that you were working on yesterday. Yesterday I asked you to start on the ‘D’ questions and move onto the ‘E’ questions, having a go at the M questions if you were feeling confident. Carry on today so that all of the ‘E’ questions are completed.

If you have done all of that, have a go at answering some of the ‘RPS’ questions of the second sheet. Again, start with ‘D’ level questions and move onto ‘E’.

Again, if you are finding them tricky, look again on ‘Statistics’ on Purple Mash under ‘Maths.’

R.E

Following on from yesterday’s work on Oscar Romero, I would like you to create your own Romero Cross. Look at the Powerpoint link in the attachments and also look at the word document which shows you what the cross might look like.

Computing

Today I would like you to complete your two Computing ‘2dos’ on purple mash.

Have a lovely day!

 

Wednesday 17th June

Your second main task today is to imagine that you are there in that camp. Write two paragraphs about what it was like to be there. What could you see and smell? How were you feeling? What did some of the other people there say to you?

Maths

Let’s start the morning with some times table practise on TT rockstars

SCIENCE 
Good afternoon everyone! Did anybody hear the thunderstorms last night?

Today we will be focusing on healthy eating. During lockdown you and your family may have decided to eat healthier or you may want to eat healthier. However, with the restaurants being closed and we have to cook at home a lot more, it is important that we understand what a balanced diet is. You've been doing so well with your daily exercise so we need to make sure we are eating the right foods too.

Click on the 2 links and watch both the videos. 

Once you have done this, I would like you to create a menu and a poster of a meal that you could have this week. Try to include your different food groups and draw a picture of your food and label it. Once you have done this, in your home learning books I would like you to write a sentence and tell me what each one means.

 

Carbohydrates -

Protein - 

Fats -

Fibre - 

 

Try not to look online at what these words mean as it's important that you have learnt what they mean rather than just copy!

Have a great afternoon and well done for all of your hard work!

Science 

Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all well today and are keeping safe. I know the weather isn't great but that can't stop you from smiling laugh

For your science activity this afternoon, it is linked to our IPC topic of transportation. We are going to be looking at the importance of air and how things fly. 

 

There are four different forces acting on a paper plane when it is in flight: Gravity: a force pulling downwards on the plane. When this is bigger than ‘lift’, the plane will fall towards the Earth. Lift: a force from air pushingup under the wing. When this is bigger than the force due to gravity, the plane will rise upwards. Driving force:a push to move the plane forwards. (Here, this is provided by the throw.) Drag: forces working against the direction of movement, due to the air pushing back on the plane. When these forces are balanced, a plane will fly at a constant speed and height.

Air is mostly a mixture of gases, but it also contains other tiny particles like smoke and soot and these can cause pollution. Carbon dioxide in the air is important to life but too much can lead to a warmer atmosphere.

Instructions 

  1. Fold a piece of paper in half lengthways and open out so the paper is flat.

  2. On each side, fold the top corner down to the centre line.

  3. Now take the newly formed corner on each side, and again fold down to the centre line, so the angled edges line up with the centre fold.

  4. Depending on the size of the paper, you may want to repeat this process once more.

  5. Fold the plane in half again along the centre line and hold the plane that has been createdwith finger and thumb on either side, ready to throw.

  6. Find a space to test your paper aeroplanes
     

Once you have had a go at creating your paper plane, measure the distance and record them down in your books. Do this 3 times and let me know your furthest distance! I will be doing this too. I wonder if your plane will travel further than mine? You can decorate your plane too smileyyes

Miss Marshall 



Thursday 11th June

Title - 'direct speech between characters' 

Please watch the video called 'partly cloudy'. It is a lovely video all about the importance of friendship and being there for one another. This is one of my favourite videos and the best thing is, it has no words! Your task today is to watch the whole video and then between 3:00 - 4:30 minutes, I would like you to write a short script on what the characters can say to each other. Gus is the cloud and Peck is the bird. What conversation could they have? Remember to use your inverted commas and ? ! , " " throughout your script.

Set it out like this:
 

" Hey I can't believe you did that!" shouted Peck.
"What do you mean?" questioned Gus.


https://www.literacyshed.com/partly-cloudy.html

IPC 
Continuing with our new topic all about transport and how we get from one place to another. Today I would like you to create a fact file. Your fact file has to be on an inventor. You can choose what mode of transport they invented. I would like to know who they are, what they invented and any more facts you have found out about them. Did they achieve anything? When did they invent the transport? How did they do it? Please then draw a picture of the inventor and put the date of when the transport was invented. I look forward to seeing who discover and which transport you have chosen!

To help you - 

  • Where is it from?

  • Are there more like him?
  • Where does he live?
  • How will you look after it?
  • Will you keep it a secret or tell someone?
  • What is it called?

I have set you all a ‘2do’ on Purple Mash. It’s another chapter story on Serial Mash and an online quiz. Enjoy!

Maths

Let’s revisit our times tables again. I would like you to spend 10 minutes on 'Hit the Button'  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

For your main lesson, we are going to continue our revision work on fractions. Today we are going to focus on adding fractions. Remember that when we add two fractions together we only add the numerators (the top number). I have attached an activity for you to complete in your home learning book. 

 

Try to show me what you can remember! For an extension, can you write six word problems that involve adding two fractions together?  Here’s mine:

 

Milly wanted to take some slices of cake to her dad’s house. She took 4/6 of a cheesecake and 5/6 of a chocolate cake. What fraction shows how many slices of cake Milly took to her dads?

Answer = 9/6 (improper fraction)

or 1 and 3/6 (mixed number) 

or 1 and ½ (mixed number)

 

If you cannot open the word document,  then make sure that you practise your fraction work on purple mash

Have a good day and keep smiling!

 

Mr McRae 

Science 
Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are all keeping safe and are well!

 

This afternoon I have set you some revision tasks on purple mash. This is a topic you learnt at the beginning of the year so hopefully you still remember your scientific vocabulary!

 

The first task is looking at how a bulb works in a circuit. You must use the key words to create a circuit and tell me if it would work. You need to type at the side of the screen the information and remember to use key vocabulary you have previously learnt. 

 

The second task is an electrical symbols quiz, where you will need to revisit what the symbols mean and try to match them up. 

The third task is another quiz. You must be able to identify if an item is electrical or not.

 
Don't forget to save your work 


Have a lovely day!

Miss Marshall 

Tuesday 2nd June

Good morning Year Four and happy Tuesday!  Remember to start your morning off with our morning prayer “O My God I give to you today…”

Here is your work for today:

PE with Joe

English

Today I would like you to complete the next English lesson on the link below. Make sure you click on 'Tuesday'. The focus is looking for clues about a character from how they are acting or what they say or do. We sometimes call this ‘reading between the lines’ or 'inference' . Do your best and concentrate really hard.

Maths

Today we are going to revisit our times tables. I would like you to spend 10 minutes on 'Hit the Button'  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

For your main lesson, we are going to continue our revision work on fractions. I have attached a power point underneath which I would like you to have a look at. It looks at fractions that are equivalent to a half. In your home learning book, your title is 'Finding Halves'. Open the maths activity that I have attached

below. I would like you to use the numbers of the sheet to create fractions that make ‘a half’. For example, 5/10 = ½     13/26= ½

For an extension, can you write five word problems where you have to find half of a number?

 

R.E.

Last Sunday was Pentecost Sunday when we remember how the Holy Spirit came down upon the followers of Jesus who were hiding in the Upper room. Watch this clip of the story.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KwJJJoSGw84

For your task today, I would like you to retell this story in a really interesting way. You may want to draw some pictures of each part of the story. You may want to make a little film clip of the story using your toys or you may want to make an animation on purple mash. It is up to you how you retell the story. Send me your work once you have completed it!

 

Computing

I have set you another coding '2do' on Purple Mash.

 

Have a good day and keep smiling!

Good morning Year Four. I hope that you have all had a lovely half term break and have managed to enjoy the sunshine. Here is your work for today:

PE with Joe

Follow this link to the Oak National Academy and find 'PE with Joe'. Wake yourself up and stretch those muscles with some morning exercise!

https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom/year-4#schedule

English

Today I would like you to complete the English lesson on the link above. The focus is retrieving or finding facts linked to a character description. Do your best and concentrate really hard. 

Maths

Today we are going to revisit our times tables. I would like you to spend 10 minutes on 'Hit the Button'  https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

 

For your main lesson, we are going to go back to look at finding fractions of amounts. I have attached a power point underneath which I would like you to work through. It goes back to the very basics of finding fractions of amounts and builds up. In your home learning book, your title is 'Finding Fractions of Amounts'. Anything that you are asked to write down, use your home learning book to write it down. Remember if you are finding 1/5 (one fifth) of a number you can divide it by 5 (how many 5s go into it). If you are able to, write four of your own fraction word problems as an extension. 

 

R.E.

Yesterday was Pentecost Sunday when we remember how the Holy Spirit came down upon the friends of Jesus who were hiding in the Upper room. Tomorrow a lot of our work is going to based on Pentecost.

Today is June 1st and June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. We remember how much we love Jesus and especially how much He loves us. I have attached an image of Jesus showing His sacred heart. For today's task I would like you to create your own heart heart. You can create it in whatever way you can- it can be a collage using materials or you can paint it or use purple mash. it is up to you. Somewhere in or on your heart, you must include the name 'Jesus'. I shall look forward to seeing all of your wonderful hearts! 

 

Computing

I have set you a new coding '2do' on Purple Mash.

 

Have a good day and stay happy!

Maths 
I have attached a document that I would like you to complete. Challenge yourself to the second sheet if you can. Please complete this in your home learning book under the title 'rounding to the nearest thousand'.  It is very important that you work hard on this, as this ALWAYS appears on a test at some point.

English

I hope you all enjoyed the video clip yesterday. Today we will be writing a setting description. I would like you to imagine the scene from the start of the video clip. What would you describe and in what order would that be? The lake, the moon, the mountains, the trees, the campsite, the fire, the tent? Perhaps a different order?  What sounds are mentioned in the text- crickets, water, owl, fire crackling. Remember that a good setting description ties everything together and uses all the 5 senses. Look at the example I have given to you as a document. This will help you with your ideas. I will also attach a link that will help you with different sounds that you may hear. Please remember your best handwriting and I look forward to reading them when we are back in school!

Science 

Good afternoon everyone, what a beautiful day it is today!

This afternoon I would like you to conduct an experiment where you find out if various liquids effect the growth of a plant. 

If you can't do this today, make sure it is done this week. I would like you to have a go at planting 4 different seeds inside plastic cups. If you are struggling to find seeds, use the seeds inside an apple. 

 

Please click on the link so that you can see in detail what you have to do. The website says 6 but we will only be doing 4. Each day you will record the length of your plant with a ruler in your books. Create a chart under the title 'Growth of various plants'. 

The 4 liquids you will be trying to 'water' your plant will be:

- water

- fizzy drink (your choice)

- salt water

- vinegar 

 

Make sure you are using the same amount of each liquid to pour on to your plant.

I hope by the end of this activity you have a wonderful plant!

If there are any issues, please email me on 2email.

English

Yesterday I asked you to watch the clip below and create a short story. How did you get on?

Today I would like you to watch the clip again but this time, as you are watching it I want you to think of ten really good words that come into your mind whilst you are watching the events. They might be words to describe the creature, or words which show how one of the characters are feeling. You may have even used some of these words in your work yesterday. Write today's date and your title is 'Dreamgiver'. Can you write your words down in your home learning book and then write down what they mean (their definition) For example you might write:

'peculiar' and then next to it you would a word that means strange.

peculiar- a word that means strange

A shout out to Filip for scoring well on TT rockstars and Oscar!! Will the teachers ever win??

Remember it's ABSOLUTELY FINE if you don't log onto TT rockstars again today! 

(Teachers v Pupils!)

 

Like yesterday, we are going to continue looking at halves of numbers. In your home learning book, write today's date and title 'Finding Halves Part Two' and complete the calculations below:

Write them like this: Half of 48 = 24. if you need to do any workings out, great! Just write down what you need to. Remember to partition your numbers so for 58 (find half of 50=25 and half of 8=4 then add 25 and 4 = 29 so half of 58 = 29

Key facts: Half of 90= 45   Half of 9 = 4.5      Half of 30 =15       Half of 7 = 3.5

                 Half of 1 =0.5 (.5)   Half of 5 = 2.5  

(who spotted the mistake on yesterday's key facts?! I've corrected it now. Sorry about that!!)

 

Find half of each of these numbers: Try to do the first two rows. The last two green rows are for those who want a real challenge!! 

 65         28       87        84         94        86        57      98      26

Your title today is 'Halving'. Write the date and title in your home learning book. Look at the Maths activity below and complete it in your book. Once you have finished, for an extra challenge, can you write some word problems linked to finding halves of numbers? For example:

Mr McRae collected 126 shells on the beach. He gave half to his friend. How many shells did Mr McRae have in his bucket? (but you can make yours more interesting and harder than that!)

 

R.E

May is the month dedicated to Our Lady. For your R.E. work today, I would like you to write a prayer to Mary. Think carefully about what you would like to say to her. Remember our prayers can say 'thank you'. You could ask Mary to look after someone who is sick. You could be asking Mary to think about someone in Heaven. You could be celebrating the kindness in the world with Mary. Decorate your prayer. You might include Rosary beads or include the different names that we use to address Mary, such as 'Queen of Heaven' or 'Our Lady'. I would like to put some of your prayers on the RE section of the school website, so check your spellings and make sure that your handwriting is neat too! Send them across to me when you can.

 

Music

Enjoy your Music lesson from Mrs Hypolite!

 

Have a great day!

 

 

 

Thursday 7th May

Good morning everybody, today is the last day of the school week as you have a lovely long bank holiday weekend ahead and therefore no work will be set for you tomorrow!

 

Morning start 

Some of you may be aware, but as of monday there will be a teachers vs pupils Times Table Rockstar battle! Obviously the teachers are going to win wink. However, I would like you to spend 20 minutes this morning practicing on Times Table Rockstars at your times tables so that you have a fighting chance against us! 

 

Maths 

Title 'Divide 3 digit by 1 digit' 

In your home learning books please have a go at lesson 4. It is similar to what you did yesterday, however this time you will be diving a 3 digit number. The same method and rules apply. Please click on the link that will take you to todays video.

Title ' War veteran fact file'

As tomorrow is VE day, some of you might not know exactly what that is. Therefore today I would like you to create a fact file.However, you must try to research and find information about a war veteran. Research one of the veterans – a person who is an ex-member of the armed forces – and create a fact file about them. Apart from their name and age when they enlisted, include details of the force they worked in, where they were stationed, and in particular, any significant memories of VE Day they had. This can be found online. You might even want to draw a photo of them, if you can find one! Please do take a photo of your work and send it to me on 2email. I wonder who you will find?

 

Afternoon activity 

Continuing with the theme of VE day, I would like you to draw a picture so that you can stick it up to show your respects! Make it colourful, include people from the army, the british flag and planes if you can! Google has lots of suggestions and ideas so that you aren't stuck. You can do this on either 2paint through Purple Mash or you can draw one. Please do send me photos of your posters, I would love to see them! 

 

Spellings

 

A new spelling list is available for you to try this week. Make sure you start off on 'easy' and work your way up too advanced. The more you practice your spellings, the more honey pots you collect! I will post the leaders of our class for this weeks spellings on Monday, so that you can see who has the most points. Will it be you?

LEADERBOARD FOR THE SPELLINGS YOU HAD LAST WEEK

TOP SPOT ROYAL BEE GOES TO FRASIER!

2nd place - Ashton and Julian 

3rd - Maja M 

4th - Kuba 

5th - Filip 

 

There are no more royal bees!

Will you make it to the top of the leader board for next week? Keep playing everybody.

 

Tonight I will be uploading the mini water cycles that you have created. Thank you to the children that have sent me theirs. Hopefully a few more of you can send me some and I will post them online!

 

Enjoy your day everyone and I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

I have been so impressed with your effort and knowledge all about The Water Cycle that I think it is time to create our own! However, because nobody has a few clouds and rivers in their home (well I don't) you are going to create The Water Cycle on a smaller scale. Please look at the picture below and clink on the link to show you how it is done. You don't need food colouring if you don't have it, it is only used to make the water a darker colour. Please send me pictures of your mini water cycles on purple mash using 2email, so that I can put them on the website!

ENGLISH 

I have set you a task on purple mash to complete called 'The Creepy Wood'. You have to describe what it was like when you entered the woods. This is a setting description so remember to use your 5 senses! How did you move around in the woods? What could you see? Did anything scare you? Try to include a simile, expanded noun phrase and adverbials of time (later on that day). 
I look forward to reading how you have described the woods!


AFTERNOON ACTIVITY

On purple mash I have tried to test your brains with your remembering skills. I have set you some work to do with the digestive system. If you type in 'digestion' into the search bar of purple mash, you will find a support link that will help you if you have forgotten. 
Best of luck, I hope you can remember the different parts of the digestive system!


I will be checking to see that everybody has logged on and has completed their work. 

If you are stuck, don't forget to email me!


Tomorrow I will be setting you new spellings on Spelling Shed and posting pictures of The Water Cycle designs that many of you have sent in! Keep them coming!


Also remember to clap for the NHS at 8pm tonight, the louder the better! If you have any photos of yourself showing support on your front door steps, please do send them to me on purple mash! 

I would love if you could all pray after the clap to thank all of our frontline staff and key workers.

Spend 5 minutes practising your times tables. Either focus on the ones that you are working on or a 'mixed bag'.

 

In your Home Learning Book, write today's date and your title is: Maths Fact Challenge!

Now I would like you to choose 8 numbers between 0 and 40. Write them down on your page but spread them out. Like this…

25                                         32                                          40   

 

Now around each number I would like you to think of as many ways as you can to make that number. Think of additions, subtractions, multiplications and divisions. For example:

                                      40 - 8

                      16 x 2         32        8 x 4

                              15 + 17        32 divided by 1

 

Have a good morning and enjoy your home learning activities for today. Remember to work hard!

SCIENCE 
Good afternoon everyone, last week we had a look at the water cycle video and you began to develop an understanding for what it is.

This week I would like you to draw a diagram of The Water Cycle either in your books or on purple mash using 2paint. You must include the words 'precipitation' ' condensation' 'evaporation' 'collection' in your work and draw arrows to show me which way the water travels. Please colour in your designs and if you need to, use google to show you an example of the water cycle diagram. 

If you are completing this in your home learning books, please take a photo of your work and email it to me using purple mash '2email' so that I can hopefully post some of your diagrams on the website. Please therefore check your spellings of key words and make sure it is labelled correctly. 


Have a lovely day!

Thursday 23rd April

Good morning everybody!laugh

English




Look at the two images above. You are going to plan a paragraph about persuading somebody to buy the brand new chocolate bar that you created. You will need to make somebody want to eat it by describing the chocolate bar with exciting vocabulary! In your home learning books under the title 'persuasive writing draft' I would like you to plan your persuasive paragraph in sections. For example:

The cost and where you can buy it
The cost of my delicious, yummy chocolate bar will be 50p which is cheap because I want everybody to be able to try it! You will be able to buy it in every single supermarket in all of Europe. You will find it in the sweet isle and it will be written in different languages so everybody can see that they must buy my chocolate.

Taste words
Yummy, delicious, smooth, rich, scrumptious 

Tomorrow you will be writing your paragraphs to persuade somebody to buy your chocolate bar over a different one. Today is all about planning what you will write.

IPC 

Today's IPC is a little different. I thought I would let you in on a competition that is happening around Bury. 
'Design a duvet competition'

Wednesday 22nd April

Good morning Year Four, I hope that you all had a lovely Easter holiday and have managed to enjoy yourselves. I hope that you are all safe and well and your families are too. Do remember to email me to let me know how you are and what you have been up to. 

So here are this morning's tasks:

 

English

Log onto Purple mash and I have set you a few Reading '2dos' on Serial Mash. You have to read the chapters from the book and then answer the multiple choice questions. Remember to read the chapters carefully so that you can answer the questions correctly!

 

Maths

Log onto 'www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit the button'

Spend 10-15 minutes practising your times tables. Either focus on the ones that you are working on or a 'mixed bag'.

 

Now have a go at this Maths activity. Watch the video on adding 1000 and try your hardest to complete the activities on the left hand side in your Home Learning book. Make sure you write the date and title (Make a Whole)

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

Now check your answers to see how you have done. Remember to go back and try any that you got wrong again.

Science 

https://www.stem.org.uk/resources/elibrary/resource/460434/water-cycle
Please click on the link above and watch the video. This video clip is all about The Water Cycle. In your home learning books under the title 'The water cycle'  I would like you to write out the questions and then write your answer in a full sentence. Leave a line and then write question 2. Remember to use your best presentation. You can re-watch the video as many times as you need and I would recommend pausing the video at key points so that you understand what you are writing. Parents can then test you on your knowledge by asking you one of the questions and you can see if you can remember your answer! 

1. What is water vapour?

2. What is evaporation?

3. What is condensation?

4. How does the water fall back down to the Earth and when does it do this?
5. What is precipitation?

6. What happens to water that falls on land?

7. What happens to water that falls on glaziers?

8. What needs water to survive?

9. What is an interesting fact that you have learnt about The Water Cycle?

10. What does The Water Cycle do?

Spellings

This week your spellings have been set on Spelling Shed as a new assignment. You have spellings that end in '-ssion'. Please make sure that you are logging on and practising as I am able to see who is doing this! The more you practise the better your spelling bee becomes. I know that some children have already achieved ROYAL BEE! This is because they are trying really hard with their spellings and playing the games linked to them. You must be practising your spellings every day. 
 

If you have any questions about anything, please do email me using '2email' on Purple Mash and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

Have a lovely day!

Holy Week  

 

Thursday 9th April

Morning Year Four. Here is your last message until after the Easter break.

During the holidays, remember to keep on reading and practising your times tables. On Purple Mash, have a look at 'Serial Mash' as there are a lot of exciting online books to read on there. You can still email me on 2email over the break if you need to. 

Enjoy the Easter holidays, remember to think about the events of Holy Week and the celebration of Jesus's resurrection on Easter Sunday. Say your prayers and I hope that you and your families have a wonderful, holy Easter.

Mr McRaesmiley

 

Wednesday 8th April

Good Morning Year Four. I hope that you are all well and are ready for your last day of work before the Easter holidays begin! After today you won't have any set work to do for a little while but you should continue to practise your reading skills and your times tables. We want you to be able to enjoy your Easter holidays and spend important time with your family. 

So here are this morning's tasks. 

 

I would like you to watch this clip from The Miracle Maker 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88vJ5A_oLRM

In your Home Learning Book, write today's date and your title is 'The Crucifixion'

Once you have watched the clip, I would like to to imagine that you were a friend of Jesus who was hiding in the crowds because you were so afraid. You watched him on his journey and saw what happened to him. I want you to write a letter to Jesus, telling him that you were near him and that you could see everything that happened to him. Use the information from yesterday on the Stations of the Cross to remind you of the key events. Remember that when you are writing the letter, you probably didn't think that you would ever see Jesus again but wanted to write down your thoughts and feelings to him. Little did you know that very soon, you would see him again...but that's for later. 

Make sure that you try your best and remember to keep your writing as neat as you can!

 

I would start my letter something like this...

My dearest friend Jesus,

I just cannot believe what I have just seen. I am devastated. You were so brave and so quiet. I was there with you every step of the way...only you couldn't see me. 

The Roman soldiers...

 

Easter Card

Continue creating an Easter card that you can give to your family on Easter Sunday. Make sure it has a religious picture on the front and try to make it as creative and beautiful as you can. Don't rush it as you will be asked to work on it each day this week. Today might be the day to design what your card will look like! Look on line for some ideas 'Google- Home made Easter cards'.

 

MATHS

Log onto 'www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit the button'

Spend 10-15 minutes practising your times tables. Either focus on the ones that you are working on or a 'mixed bag'.

 

Purple Mash

Complete the Easter related 2dos that I have set for you on Purple Mash

 

Enjoy your morning and Miss Marshall will set your afternoon task for you. I'll write you one final message tomorrow morning so don't forgot to log back in then!

Wednesday Afternoon

Good afternoon Year 4, I hope you are ready for some relaxation because you have worked so hard during your home learning experience! 

I have had a go at setting up spelling shed and have set you a task to do. I will be logging on regularly so do check to see if I have set you any more. If it isn't working or you are confused, please email me on purple mash using '2email'. 
Use the codes #401861 or 
#458436 to log in on a 'hive games' that I have created. There are 20 spellings to have a go at and there should be a league, so that you can see how many points you have earned from the spellings. 

 

After you have had a go at Spelling Shed, today's science experiment is linked to our IPC topic - chocolate. I would like you to create a chocolate drink, it could be a milkshake or a hot chocolate. I want you to draw it in your home learning book and label the ingredients you have used. Your task is to see if you can include a solid in your drink that can turn into a liquid. Add different toppings, make it as crazy and inventive as you can.

 

If you are unable to make the drink, please draw a picture of it in your home learning books and just label what you would have used (with a ruler) and how you would change the solid to a liquid. What would you add? Please colour this in neatly. 

Please log on to Spelling Shed tomorrow as I will be setting you different tasks for you to complete. (This should not be done all in one day as you have the entire easter holidays to complete it)


Enjoy the easter holidays, keep up the exercise and see how many books you can read in the next 2 weeks! I wonder if you can read 3/4?laugh

SCIENCE 
This afternoon I would like you to conduct an experiment using ice cubes. If you can't do it today, don't worry you can do it tomorrow. Your challenge is this - I would like you to get 3 different ice cubes and your task is to see which one you can keep insulated the longest. This means, which ice cube will stay the coldest and not melt for the longest time. You will need to wrap each ice cube in a different material, thinking about ways you can keep it cold. (This will be your insulator) Once they are all wrapped, in your home learning book, I would like you to tell me the material that you used and what you noticed happen after 2 minutes and then 5 minutes and then 8 minutes. Record your observations in full sentences. Please draw a picture of your 3 ice cubes at the start of the investigation and then after the 8 minutes. Which was the best insulator? What did you do to keep the ice cube cold? Which insulator didn't work and why? Remember to sue your scientific vocabulary and questioning. I will be looking forward to reading your scientific conclusions!

What have we been getting up to at home?

        Children's Mental Health Week 2020

As part of Children's Mental Health Week, the Year 4 children have taken part in a carousel of activities, all reminding us how important it is to be brave and to talk about our feelings. We've played a 'Mountain of Emotions' game, watched video clips, designed posters and thought about times when we feel different emotions. 

Welcome to Year Four 2019-2020

 

Welcome to Year Four! We have all had a really happy start to the new school year and look forward to sharing our work and news with you. The main character in the first book that we are reading in English, 'Arthur and the Golden Rope'  becomes an 'unlikely hero' because he perseveres, works hard and is determined. This year, we want every child in Year Four to become like Arthur and achieve their very best!

 

Some important information:

 smiley Mr McRae will teach Year Four on Mondays. Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.

 smiley Miss Marshall will teach Year Four on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.

 

smiley  PE is on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Full PE kits should be in school at all times. 

 

Firebird Ballet

Firebird Masks

 

The Firebird!

We have had a wonderful week in Year 4.  The Firebird is a ballet and orchestral concert work by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky. We have used 'The Firebird' as a theme to our learning. In English lessons, We have learnt about the Russian traditional fairy tale linked to the music.  In Science, we have conducted an experiment where we have investigated how effective feathers are as insulation. In Art, we have made Firebird masks to be worn when performing our own ballet composition. We have also produced paintings of the Firebird. We learnt how to use blending techniques to create a dramatic Firebird.  In Dance, we made and performed our own ballet dance to the music. What an exciting week! 

                                                                   MARVELLOUS MATHS!

 

We have started our Fractions unit this week with Mrs Carlin. We started off recapping previous learning from Year 3. We then learnt about decimal equivalents of fractions using place value grids to help us. First we looked at converting tenths into decimals then some of us moved on to converting hundredths into decimals! yes
