Home Learning

Have a look at your year 3 and 4  journals below. They are filled with lots of photos and messages about what you've all been up to during lockdown - this really made us smile!
Hi year 3 and 4,
 
Amazingly, it is the last week of our school year. Well done to everyone for all the hard work and we have loved having you in our classes. To all of the grown ups who have been supporting you over the last couple of months, thank you so much for all of the help and encouragement that you have given to your children, we know it hasn't always been easy but you have done it, so well done. The last week is normally more relaxed with fun activities, so we have tried to put that together for the online working, take the opportunity to wind down, have a well earned rest and get ready for the summer, even though it will be a strange one, hopefully it will still be enjoyable. Children we know you will back and as brilliant as ever in your year 4/5 classes.
 
Arts week 
 
29 June – 19 July 2020
 
For the next 3 weeks it is School arts week (I know it should be weeks!) try to use some of your time to create something artistic, it could be photos, drawings, paintings, images on the computer, sculpture or even dance. Whatever you feel is a good way of expressing yourself. This weeks' focus is Connecting across generations Visit  https://engage.org/happenings/?tagFilter=connecting-across-generations&project=childrens-art-week for ideas or come up with something new. We would love to see what you create.
 
Your teachers are still here if you need us. We are responsible for home learning and taking care of key workers' children, therefore, you may not have a response instantly. Please respect that we have families too and will only respond during the hours of 9-4.

YEAR 3 and 4 ENGLISH WEEK BEGINNING 13th July 2020
 
We just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all your grown ups for the past few months; for helping you with your English tasks. 
 
For the last week before the summer holidays, we will be uploading small tasks that encourage lots of 'talk aloud, think aloud'.
 
Don't feel you have to complete them, remember to take time out to enjoy the lovely weather we will hopefully be getting this week. Keep being your amazing selves!
 
 
 
 
Year 3 and 4 maths W.B. 13.7.20
 
A big well done for all of your effort in maths this year both in and especially outside of school. Adults, we are really grateful for all the effort you have put in supporting your child with maths, as teachers we know it can sometimes be challenging trying to teach new skills especially at the moment.

For the last week, you have 5 mathematical challenges to complete, which act as clues to finding some treasure!

Once each clue is solved successfully, you can then move on to the next clue. Good luck! There is also an answer sheet so you can check if you’re right.

You can do this all at once or spread it out over the week, it is up to you. Just remember to take some breaks and have a nice relaxed week.

Computing
 
Create your own algorithms (set of precise instructions) to control the sprite (character) in scratch. It’s easy to start, just follow the instructions. Then when you feel confident, you can create pretty much anything. Year 4s and 3/4 AW you have already had a try at school, everyone else just have a go and follow the tutorial!
PE
 
Here are some ideas to keep active during these weeks at home. See how many you can complete each week. 
 
  • Joe Wick's daily PE lessons at 9am are easy to follow via You Tube.  He's even asked Prince William and Kate to join him this week. youtube.com   PE with Joe.
 
  • For our Year 3/4 Strictly fans: Oti Mabuse has been providing dance classes every day at 11.30 am on her Instagram page but  you can access the saved classes on Oti's You tube channel.
 
 
 
Times Tables
 
Year 3 should be working on 3, 4 and 8 times tables. 
Year 4 should know all times tables up to 12.
 
Please visit Top Marks for fun times table games - www.topmarks.co.uk

Year 4 children - keep the time at 6 seconds- I know you can do it.
