Welcome to Warbler Class' online webpage!

Our teacher is Miss Parker.

 

Optional writing tasks

Welcome back Warbler 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 Warblers! 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.

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

Tuesday 31st March 

Good Morning, wonderful Warblers! I hope that you are all well and looking forward to another day of exhilarating tasks. Do not relinquish your effort yet.  

Please write a post on the blog to tell me how you are all doing and what you have been up to recently. I am missing seeing all of your lovely faces every day! It is definitely true to say that my dogs are not as entertaining as a class of Warblers! 

    

PSHE:

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.      

On Ms Cullen’s blog, you will find her magnificent, mindfulness minute- try this and it’ll soon make you feel like you’re back in class with us.  

     

Reading:  

30 minutes of daily reading from an AR book or a book of your choice. Quiz when you finish your book. Remember you can find a new book at:      

https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/reading/      

David Walliams is creating a free audio story everyday! I know many of you are huge fans of David Walliams, so enjoy!  https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/    

   

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.  

 

**TT Rockstar update**  

Teacher v Year 4 Battle on TT Rockstars. 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).

 

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:  
On Spelling shed, complete the 10 daily games.       

          

*** 

  

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:      

https://www.thebodycoach.com/blog/pe-with-joe-1254.html        

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    

     

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,

Monday 30th March     

Good Morning, Warblers! Happy Monday 😊  

I hope you had a spectacular weekend!  Let me know what you have all done on our class blog.  

  

Here is an exciting Anglo-Saxon/Viking Gods quiz- try to get as many as you can correct! Post any new facts online! https://central.espresso.co.uk/espresso/primary_uk/subject/module/activity/item1199218/grade2/module1190561/index.html?source=search-all-all-all-all&source-keywords=viking%20god  

  

Have you completed any goals this weekend? If so, share them with the class on Warbler’s blog.  

If not, then set a goal  for this week. Write these down and check each day if you are working towards these.  

What could you achieve by the end of this week? Maybe you could participate in, at least, one act of kindness a day, or you could remember to stretch for five minutes every morning?  

 

PSHE: 

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.    

  

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

    

Reading: 

30 minutes of daily reading from an AR book or a book of your choice. Quiz when you finish your book. Remember you can find a new book at:

History:  

Research a Viking God i.e. Odin, Thor…  

  

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: 

  

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! 

    

Writing:  

Now that you have finished your sensational saga, (alliteration and comma WOW!) we are now going to be focussing on one character such a Viking God (e.g. Thor).  

Today you will be using a dictionary or online dictionary and thesaurus to collate adjectives and similes that you could use to describe your Viking God. Think about their appearance (what they look like- body, hair, facial expression) and personality. Use your Viking God model to help you! 

Model- see diagram below 

 

Maths:

This week you are going to be learning the time. I would like you to be able to read an analogue clock digitally.

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!

Grid Method
Rainbow

15.1.18

 

This week in year 4, we have started to read our new class book: The Iron Man. The children have made predictions about what they think the book will be about and will be writing a character description of the Iron Man later this week. In maths, we have started to look at multiplication and will be working to relate multiplication and division to each other. In science, we have started to learn about the water cycle. The children have drawn and labelled their own water cycles and will continue to explore the water cycle in the following lessons.

I have been amazed at the amount of information Warbler class have been able to tell me about Ancient Egypt (their new ICE ZONE topic): from mummification to pyramids to pharaohs! Year 3/4 will continue to learn about Ancient Egypt in the ICE ZONE this term.

10.12.18

The children in year 4 have loved reading our new book, The Tale of the Icelandic Yule Lads. The children have worked hard to describe the trolls and are excited to be creating their own characters in English this week.

In maths, we have continued to explore addition and subtraction. We have been looking at using the inverse operation to check our calculations and will be working to solve some 2-step word problems involving both addition and subtraction in the upcoming lessons.

In science, we have explored the temperature at which material changes state and have plotted our findings on a graph.

1.11.18 

In Maths, year 4 have moved on to look at addition and subtraction. We have been focusing on exploring the inverse relationship between addition and subtraction. Following this, we will be moving on to focusing on learning a variety of different techniques to support with adding and subtracting numbers efficiently.

In English, we have been learning and writing about the Spanish Armada whereby the children will be retelling the events of the Spanish Armada through writing a recount.

In science, we are exploring the states of matter. The children will learn about solids, liquids and gases, and the properties of each of these. They will work to sort objects based upon their properties before moving on to learn about how objects change state.
