Dear Children and Parents,
Recently we added a plan of various activities for you to complete should you choose, along with various links to games and activities. As we approach the Easter holidays this will not be updated as we want you to enjoy spending time with your families and hopefully some Easter sunshine. However from April 20th you will find a new overview to help you with your learning. Reading doesn't really count as homework, it is a pleasure, so please do keep that up!
Thank you to everyone who has sent me emails via the Contact our Teacher page, if any of you want to send pictures of creations or activities you are doing, please send it to the school email address, they will forward it to me :-)
I have a game for you to get your brains in gear - can you write a list of nouns A - Z of animals? Eg. Antelope, Badger, Caterpillar (Don't go for the obvious ones!). Race against the clock or a partner...
There are lots of great things going on online to help keep you busy and learning in fun ways - for example, join a million other people livestreaming with Joe Wicks every morning at 9 for a workout to keep fit and healthy. I am in school this week so I am doing these work outs - they definitely make you work hard so you feel great when you finish them!
Go on https://radioblogging.net/ for an interactive Literacy session with Pie Corbett (we use a lot of his work in school, for example he wrote the Alien Landing - he's fabulous!) - check the site for times, they do live shows through the day and you can watch previous ones any time. Different poets and authors are on each day.
DAVID WALLIAMS fans - you can listen to him read his books aloud - here's the link for Gangsta Granny. https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/gangsta-granny-by-david-walliams-read-by-the-author-audiobook-extract/
We voted to name ourselves Tolerance as we believe that this virtue is one we should practise daily. We know that tolerance means acceptance and we can show this every day by allowing other people to be the way they are without judging or criticising their actions or beliefs. We linked our understanding of this to the bible, which says that we shouldn’t be concerned about what another person is doing, but rather we should be concerned about our own actions because each of us will give an account of himself to God (Romans 14:12).
During this difficult time we encourage you to keep learning about South America and its physical features. Investigating the Ring of Fire, the volcanoes and earthquakes, how they are formed and why they happen was really exciting so do carry on!
Read, read, read - we cannot emphasise this enough! Parents, please encourage your child to read with you at home. Even though many now read in their heads, reading aloud is a skill in it's own right and their fluency and expression will only develop if they practise. Thank you in advance!
If you would like to share any pictures of projects or pieces of work you have done, ask parents first! Then share it using the Twitter name @MrsC_yr4,
One of our school values is Trust and we trust in the word of the Lord as we remember
'I can do all things through him who strengthens me.' Philippians 4:13
