Hello Year 4 

 

Welcome back after the half term break.  We hope that you have enjoyed the holiday and the sunshine.  We have changed the way some of the home learning is done and are using Oak National Academy.  It has on-line videos and activities for you to do. There are some picture guides below to show you how to go through the Oak Learning platform.   The numeracy will be as before with videos and worksheets.  Any problems email us to help you.

Many of you celebrated Eid during the holidays.  In light of that, we are going to do 5 lessons on Islam.  There are 4 lessons from Oak Academy and for the 5th lesson can you tell me how you celebrated Eid.  If you didn't then you can leave that lesson out but do the other 4.

Art - Beginning 1st June - Continue learning about the famous artist Wassily Kandinsky and recreate art in his style.

French - Week beginning 1st June - We will not be learning any French language - but let us use this time to learn a little more about France

Geography - Week beginning 1st June - There is just one Flipchart but three lessons to do as you will see on the worksheet and a fun 'top trumps' game to play with your family.

It's Half term 25th May - everybody deserves a rest. Please re-check the home learning on Monday 1st June 2020

Hello Year 4

 

Here is the work for this week starting 18th May.  As a number of you have heard on the news the Prime Minister wants to start opening school again.  I know a few of you wanted more details about this when I spoke to you last week, but at this stage we don't have any details of when that will happen or what it will look like.  Now I know a number of you have been enjoying extra long lie-ins but in the event that school reopens in the next month or so may I suggest that you get ready for it by getting up at the same time you would if you were going to school and doing a few hours of work each day.  This way it won't be such a shock when we finally all do come back to school as normal.  With that in mind I have put up quite a lot of work this week.  There is the usual lessons for each day for Literacy and Maths along with a number of other lessons too.  All lessons have a flipchart, presentation or video and worksheets to go with it.  Sometimes the same flipchart is for two lessons but it will make sense as you work through it.  As before no time table - just work through them at your own pace and if you have any problems just e-mail us.

Hello, Year 4.

Here is your home learning for this week.  As before, I have not put up a timetable as some of you like the freedom to do the work at your own pace.  Maths has the videos to help you and literacy can be done in any sensible order.  Try to do a little each day.   

Maths beginning week 11th May - These are the worksheets - see below for the videos for each day.

As you read and watch make a mindmap of the information (print out or copy from the sheets here). Lesson 2 Write a fact file about life for Victorian children either on you sheet on on paper. Lesson 3 Now that you have researched Victorian children, look at the questions, choose two and answer them (on the sheet or on paper) as if you were a Victorian child.

R.E. Week beginning 11th May - Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital - Prayers

R.E. Week beginning 11th May - Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital - Prayers  1

R.E.

 

As the picture above shows, Great Ormond Street Hospital, which cares for sick children, is asking you to write a prayer.  I think that at this time, many of us are worried or thinking about people who are sick.  We also think about NHS workers (doctors and nurses) who are working to look after sick people.  Your task this week is to write a prayer for anyone and everyone who has either be affected by Covid-19 or works to cure it.  Draft out your prayer,  improve it, write it up in your BEST handwriting and then decorate it.  When we get back we can post them to Great Ormond Street Hospital and photocopy some for our prayer table and learning journal.   

V.E. Day

V.E. Day 1

Hello Year 4

 

Welcome to the third week of the Summer Term.  We hope you are all doing well and getting on with lots of work.  Some of you were concerned about the maths work and so to make it easier I have now put videos on the site for each day (Mon-Thurs).  I have not updated the timetable as you can do the work when it suits you. Just be sensible as some of the work builds on from previous lessons.)

As Friday is VE day lots of the work this week is VE day or World War 2 themed.  

Maths beginning week 4th May - These are the worksheets - see below for the videos for each day. The Morse Code is for Friday Fun - linked to VE day.

Welcome to the second week of the summer term.  Hopefully, many of you managed to engage with last week's learning but if you have not completed it do not worry as we will leave it up this week for you to finish. It was lovely to speak to some of you on the telephone and hear that you were getting on well during lockdown. We have put a timetable up as a suggested guide for the work but work through it as it suits you.  Don't forget to look at the school YouTube page as there are videos up that you need to view for some of the work.
