Writing suggestions

If you would like to complete some writing tasks at home then have a look at these optional tasks above.

Welcome back Puffin class!

 

It has been an excellent first week back and the children are settling in really well. They have been incredibly positive and resilient during the assessments this week and are producing some brilliant pieces of work. 

 

Just a reminder that homework started yesterday. All the children need to complete 10 Spelling Shed games, 10 garage games on TT Rockstars by Monday 21st September. We recognise that there are a few issues with TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed at the moment so if your children cannot access this, please get a paper copy from us. For this week, please keep a record of how many games they have completed. There should also be 5 entries in their reading journal by Friday. Please note that reading journals and AR books should come into school every day

 

If your child would like to do any writing at home, then we will share some voluntary tasks on the class pages for them.

 

When coming to school, please ensure that your child arrives with a sunhat and water bottle. As the weather turns, please ensure that your child have appropriate clothing in school, including wellies. 

 

Enjoy the sunshine!

Congratulations Puffins! You have made it to the end of Year 4! Today is the last day of the school year. Well done for everything you have done, not only this term, but in the last year! You have all worked so hard, being resilient in your learning. You have adapted brilliantly to learning virtually and overcome so many challenges. You should all be incredibly proud! 

 

Today, you are free to complete the online grids but please know there is no pressure to do all of these.

 

Most importantly, I hope that you all have a brilliant, restful and well-deserved summer holiday. We cannot wait to hear all about it when we are back at school. We are all looking forward to seeing you all in September.

There are about 3 hours of learning for your child. Every day there will be an English, Maths and Creative lesson. If you search around the website, you may find extra curricular activities to complete! At the minute, we have grouped Year 3 and 4 together. However, once your child has watched the lesson linked, please encourage them to access the 'Support' or 'Challenge' as required. Please support your child to continue reading daily as well as participating in physical exercise.

Miss Parker, Mr Hall, Mrs Knox, Mrs Voce & Mr Thomas

 

Good Morning Year 3 & 4. Welcome to the new half term! We hope you have all had a restful but exciting break.

 

As there are some pupils and teachers back at school now, the home learning is looking a bit different this week. 

Eventually, all of this learning will be on our new online learning platform but whilst this is being set up, here are some independent activities for your child to complete. Attached is a newsletter that outlines what your child could do each day for their home learning. For example:

 

Daily:

  • Reading for 15 minutes
  • Maths activity
  • English activity
  • Other curriculum subject activity eg. Computing, Geography, History etc.
  • Spellings
  • P.E- Joe Wick's workout

 

Please feel free to use the rest of the indoor and outdoor learning grids from last term. Your child may continue with TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed as they wish. 

 

We hope that your child continues to blog as we would love to hear what they are doing, but know that their teacher may not be able to respond as quickly as before due to the fact that they could be teaching in school.

 

If there are any questions, please feel free to ask by posting the blog. Remember to just try and do what you can- do not feel like you have to do everything. We hope you enjoy this week of learning and stay happy and safe!

 

Take care,

Miss Parker, Mr Hall, Mr Thomas, Mrs Voce and Mrs Knox

It is so important to make sure you look after your mental health. I hope you are enjoying your time of calm- try your best to prioritise a slot in your busy day to participate in this session.   

Find a quiet space and get comfortable on a chair or on the floor. Watch this video to enjoy a relaxing, uplifting mindfulness exercise.

How to beat nerves-https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EJNOsvTnR1k&list=PL8snGkhBF7ngDp1oJtx5VcjwatxZn8xLK&index=7

Remember that you always have your breath to mindfully take a minute to yourself.    

   

 

Maths:   

Keep practising telling the time on an analogue clock. This is really important to learn.

Here are some questions that you can have a go at. I will give you the answers tomorrow.

Starter: 

Main: 

 

 

 

**TT Rockstar update**

 

Teacher v Year 4 Battle on TT Rockstars. You are just behind but there’s not much in it. Can you win this time?

Also, feel free to spend some time on Maths Whizz or Numbots (for numberbonds) too.

 

History:  

Using your research from yesterday, create a poster about your Viking God. How could you present this?

Answer the questions below:

Who is this Viking God? What is special about them? What do they look like? What is their power? Are they good or bad? Where do they live? What is an interesting fact about them? 

Remember to research using several different websites to ensure your information is as accurate as possible. 

Here are some websites you could use to research:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zyy9wxs  

http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/viking/religion.html  

 

Writing:
 Using your bank of adjectives and similes, write a character description of your Viking God. Remember to introduce your character (say who they are). Today we are just focussing on appearance (what they look like) as tomorrow we will be describing their personality.

Model: Odin was the leader of the Viking Gods. He had a muscular, sinewy body, with broad shoulders. He was as strong as an ox. His beard was grey, which flowed from his chin, cascading like a raging waterfall.

Challenge: Use expanded noun phrases. Describe a noun using ‘with a….’
e.g. He had a muscular, sinewy body, with broad shoulders.

https://www.oxfordlearnersdictionaries.com/  

 

Handwriting: 
With care, complete the sheet titled ‘Proverbs’ in your handwriting pack.  Accurately yet confidently, form your letters to present beautiful, cursive handwriting. Who will be getting a handwriting pen when they come back to school?   

Key Words:      
Practise the seventh line of the Year 3/4 Word Walls.  Challenge: Use them create a poem. Make sure you spell the words correctly!   

 

Spellings:

Mr Hall's Storytime - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pzjquDkAJ_c

 

Design and Technology:  
After researching your Viking God, use whatever materials you can find (e.g. lollipop sticks, yoghurt pots, wool) to create a model Viking God.

Please share you hard work and effort by uploading a picture on our blog- Warblers, myself and Mrs Cullen can guess what Viking God you have created!

 

PE:    
Joe Wicks is doing a LIVE free workout at 9am every weekday morning on the website below:

Play a game with one piece of equipment in your garden. 

Challenge: Create your own game with your family- what skills are you going to use? Who will be the winners? 

Keep active!   

 

Music:   
Enjoy your ocarina playing children and parents! I will make sure I practise mine ready to perform to Warblers when we are reunited 😊.   

If you have an ocarina or any instrument at home, create a song or melody to perform to your family. Let me know how this goes! If you do not have an ocarina or musical instrument at home, use your imagination to create your own instrument. Amaze me with your creativity!  

Challenge: With your melody, experiment with volume and pitch. What do you notice? What do you observe? Post an explanation on your blog- I am eager to find out what you observed! 

 

Science:
Now you are all EXPERTS on the living things in your garden, you are going to create a wonderful wormery/bug house/ hedgehog home/ snail den/ ladybird lighthouse. 
 Research the best way to make your habitat. What does your living things need? Where should it be best located?

I look forward to your creative ideas. Share your inventive creations on the blog to inspire other pupils. 

 

Art:
If you would like to do something arty over the next few weeks, why not have a look at a few pictures from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. 
https://www.fitzmuseum.cam.ac.uk/lookthinkdo/about

Music (from Mrs Rodgers): 

Message from Mrs Rodgers (Music co-ordinator) - 

Hello everyone! I know some of you already have ocarinas and other musical instruments at home, but I thought now might be the time for lots of you to learn something new. Why not have a go at playing the ocarina. It's really easy. Anyone can do it. Get you parents involved as well. Show them the following message from me, and I look forward to hearing our new ocarina choir when we all get back together in school.

 

Hi Parents -

Fancy learning something new with your children?

In school, the children will have seen and heard other children, and sometimes the teachers, playing the ocarina. It is a small wind instrument that can be played easily without the ability to read music, and without the screechy noise of the recorder when not played quite right!!!!

As a school, we order the 4 hole plastic ocs and books from Ocarina Workshop www.ocarina.co.uk . Other websites also sell ocarinas, but I have found ocarina workshop books to be the easiest to follow. You can even get a CD to play along to as well. Go on, give it a go. Get the whole family playing!

Mrs Rodgers 

 

 

Enjoy your ocarina playing children and parents! I will make sure I practise mine ready to perform to Warblers when we are reunited 😊

If you have an ocarina or any instrument at home, create a song or melody to perform to your family. Let me know how this goes! If you do not have an ocarina or musical instrument at home, use your imagination to create your own instrument. Amaze me with your creativity!

 

Challenge: With your melody, experiment with volume and pitch. What do you notice? What do you observe? Post an explanation on your blog- I am eager to find out what you observed!

 

Remember to take learning breaks and to stay safe.  Don’t feel like you have to do everything on this list but keep your brain active. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask on the blog.

  

Best wishes,    

Mr Hall & Mrs Howard

We have also begun our exciting recycling project, where the children have worked in groups to make a recycling truck!

24.3.17 What an amazing week! Well done to all of Year 3 and 4, who made Glint of Gold such an fantastic performance. The children were also so luck to have a specialist golf tutor come and teach them some golf. They also visited Year 3's fraction museum!

2.3.17 Wow! What a fantastic effort everyone made for World Book Day! Can you guess the character?

21.2.17

Please could I remind all parents of year 3 and 4 children to ensure that their child/ren have a costume for the Egyptian performance, and that it comes into school as soon as possible so that we can start rehearsing in costume. If you are unsure of the costume that your child/ren need, please let us know asap.

 

Could I also remind you to practise the songs with your child/ren for the play, which can be found on the school website, under performance resources. Thank you!

10.2.17

Please help your child to practise their song words for the Spring performance-Glint of Gold. You can find the audio tracks on the school website and clicking on the children tab; performance resources; Glint of Gold. 

Thank you in advance.

This week the children have enjoyed science, where they carried out an investigation, in which we observed and recorded temperatures of solid turning to liquid. In maths the children have carried on with their work on fractions, where they have used their reasoning skills to prove that they know that they are correct. In english the children have used the story of the Iron Man to begin some work on a non-chronological report, which will be about recycling.

25.1.17

Years 3 and 4 thoroughly enjoyed learning about history with Chris Lloyd this afternoon! They learned about how many chickens there are in the World and how many days it would take for 1 million seconds and even 1 billion seconds. They covered everything from the Big Bang Theory through to Snapchat!

20.01.17

This week the children have been learning about fractions in Maths, and how to find fractions of amounts. In English the children have really enjoyed reading more about the Iron Man, and have written a character description.

Some children were really fortunate and experienced creating some pottery using clay! In science we have been collecting information about different minibeasts that inhabit our pond area, to enable us to create a classification key. If you look closely you can see three frogs living under ground in a crack in the earth! WOW!

13.10.16

 

Some of Year 4 had a fantastic day creating pottery Tudor Roses with Paula a specialist pottery teacher. The rest of Year 4 will be participating in this next week. I can't wait to see how they all turn out!

6.10.16

26.9.16

This week's spelling words for Year 4 are: should, steak, sugar, sure, sentence, separate and special. Who will win? Puffin Class or Warblers Class? Good luck!!

22.9.16
 

The children in Year 4 have been working really hard this week. In English they have been role-playing the characters in their book 'The Green Ship' and have used this to consider the feelings of the characters which has helped them write diaries today. In maths the children have been using their place value knowledge to solve problems. They especially worked hard to solve the problem 'The Decca Tree'. Ask your child about it- can you solve it?

16.9.16

The children have had a fantastic start to term! They have been starting their learning on the Tudors in the ICE zone this week which has included learning about Henry VIII's six wives. With the weather being so hot, the children have been outside taking measurements of the temperature and wind speed.

 

In class the children have started their book 'The Green Ship' where they have been learning about expanded noun phrases and at the end of the week they wrote character descriptions. In maths they have been learning about place value. They have been using what they know to reason and problem solve. 

WOW! What an amazing first week we have had. We have taken part in our Sports Day event, in which the children all tried their best to win their race. The children were also introduced to their new topic of The Tudors with a fantastic 'History off the page' day, where they learnt about Tudor life.

We have been learning about the water cycle and discussing each stage.

We had a visit from Dogs Trust, where the children learnt about a dogs sense of smell and how it was different to their own.

 

In English this week the children have taken on the role of Hogarth and have written a diary entry to explain the events that unfolded on the day that he caught glimpse of the Iron Man.
 
In Maths the children have been doing lots of work on fractions and also finding decimal equivalents.
 
In Science today we conducted our science experiment in which we were investigating the rate of evaporation and how to speed this up and slow it down.
 
The children have been busy in the ICE zone and have been arranging events in history into chronological order.
.

14.01.16 This week we have been looking closely at The Iron Man book to infer some of the characters feelings. The children worked in small groups to act out part of the chapter, in which they had to freeze frame at a crucial moment within the story!

06/01/16

We have started a new book in English-The Iron Man. Today children worked in small groups to create a Reader's theatre script. Each child thought of sounds and actions to emphasise reading for effect. The children then spent some time working on a performance, which they later performed to the class.

07/12/15 This week in science we have been investigating the link between evaporation and temperature. Year 4 have been using thermometers to record temperatures outside and to discuss the impact that this has on the speed of evaporation.

01.12.15 Year 4 have been using the height of teachers to help them estimate their own height. They have then been using their measurement skills to not only measure their own height, but items around the classroom as well.

23.11.15

In Exciting Writing last week, we created a really calm working environment by lighting the fire on the screen and turning the lights down low.  This helped the children concentrate whilst they did their writing.  The children were writing a diary entry in the role of a homeless lady, thinking about how she felt and the happy ending to her day.

We have been enjoying Autumn, gathering leaves and using them for our symmetry work in maths!

Welcome Puffin class!

I hope you all had a wonderful summer.

I am so excited to be your new teacher, and am looking forward to getting to know you all!

 

We will be learning all about the Roman's this term. We have some really exciting activities to look forward to including a 'History off the page' day, where we will be experiencing life as a Roman.

 

Year 4 enjoying their Roman day!

 

The children had a fantastic time at Grafham Water. Here are some photographs!

                                                                 

 

Welcome back Puffins! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas break and are ready for a fun-filled term learning all about Ancient Egypt! This is such an interesting topic and we are sure you will  enjoy finding out all about it. Fun and exciting learning awaits in the newly transformed ICE zone!  Plus, later on in the term you will be preparing for the Year 3/4 production, so get ready for lots of action. We can't wait!
