Lent Activity

Lent began last week and during Lent we try to pray, fast and give. Please see the ideas below for a little idea for you to try each day of Lent. It might be to say an extra prayer or it might be an act of kindness. See how many you can do to make this Lent a time where you made a difference. 

If you love reading and would like to head back to Roman times then there is free access to online books. This week’s author is Jeremy Strong and his book is "Romans on the rampage".

Well boys and girls... WE MADE IT! Finally, the last day of this half term. I don't think you understand just how proud I am of your resilience, determination and hard work this term. I think you have been wonderful! You can all rest soon knowing just how much you have achieved during this difficult time. I've always known how magical children can be...you've all proved it!

We have a zoom meeting this morning at 11:30am, today I will be asking you go on a Scavenger Hunt around your houses looking for certain items. During this, please be mindful of your families, don't scare your pets by leaping over them unexpectedly and please don't fling babies out of their cots looking for fluffy blankets! If you make a mess searching for things, please be kind and tidy up after yourselves. The quick quests I will send on will be for things like 'find me something red'. I won't make them too tricky!

This afternoon is a time to spend having fun and relaxing with your families. It is vital for out mental health that we switch off from work to rest and play! Spend time doing whatever makes you happy! 

Maybe you could go out for some fresh air with your family, or watch a funny film together. Maybe you could make a Valentines Day card of gift for someone you love! Or, with your family's permission (and help), you could make someone you love a nicely decorated cake.

Whatever you choose to do this afternoon, I hope you have lots of fun and are happy. 

Have a lovely half term Year 4, make sure you rest and we'll be back in touch on Monday 22nd February. It won't be long now until we are all back together, in our loving school, where we belong!

Follow the link to watch Mr Critchlow explain this in more detail. Today's lesson is a fun one but it is quite challenging. Try your best boys and girls. 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-describe-movement-between-positions-as-translations-of-a-given-unit-leftright-or-updown-1-65h36t

Here is the worksheet- if you don't have a printer, you can write out the new positions of the shapes in your workbooks. Try to draw out the tables in your books, you won't need to draw out the grids today. The tasks look like this-

Today's tasks-

 Daily Prayers-

Task 1- Maths. Today we are drawing coordinates onto grids to create triangles. If you don't have a printer you will need to use a ruler and draw out some grids that go from 0-10 on your 'Y' axis and 0-10 on you 'X' axis. In the video, Mr Critchlow explains how to do this. This is the trickiest lesson so far, please don't attempt this one if you haven't yet done Monday or Tuesday's lesson. 

https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/to-plot-specified-points-and-draw-sides-to-complete-a-given-triangle-cgtker

Task 5- Guided Reading. Set on Purple Mash.

Task 6- Geography. Today's task is based on research and so it might take you a few days. This week, we would like you to think about the links you personally have with the wider world. Please spend the afternoon speaking with the adults you live with, tell them about the continents, countries and cities you have been learning about. Then, together, discuss the places you have either been to or have other links with, for example- your grandparents might have been born in a different country, your mum or dad might have had a penpal in a different country when they were younger, your favourite footballer or celebrity might be from a country different to England. This activity will really help you to understand the wider world better. Below are a few worksheets for you to use to track the information you find, you can simply write it down in a table (like on worksheet 1) or use the map of the world and shade in the places you are linked to (try to write some information too as to why you are linked there).

My Links to the World worksheet 1

My Links- World Map

Finally, here is Cressida Cowell reading the very last chapter of our class text. I have really enjoyed this book, I hope you have too!

Key Information

 Please send your child to school every day with a water bottle.

Homework will be given out on a Monday and handed in on a Friday. Spelling tests will be given on a Friday.

 Reading books will be given out each week  on a  Monday and we ask you to return them on a Friday. We will not be issuing Reading record books to any children but staff will keep a record of the books read by your child. You may also like to do this at home.
The returned reading books will be kept in ‘class quarantine areas’ for 72 hours before being given out again, to help minimise any possible virus transmission. 

Please only send your child's reading packet to school on a Monday and a Friday.

Children should read every night  (even if it is one page).

If your child needs additional reading material then

Oxford Owl is a fantastic site, on which you can access lots of reading books, just like the ones we send home from school. They are all colour banded, just like the ones we have in school, so the children will be familiar with them.

Please ensure that your child has the appropriate clothing in their PE Bag - Tracksuit bottoms and a jumper. Mr Lord has also asked for the children to have a spare pair of socks in their PE kit bag. The children will also need to be sent into school with a warm coat, with a hood. 

 

End of Year 4 Expectations

Autumn 2

What a fantastic first term we have had together despite the circumstances. We have learned so much and had such a great time together.

Our final week before Christmas was so lovely. We enjoyed watching a Christmas pantomine, had a great party day and did lots of Christmas activities. We enjoyed playing games together and we even learned to sew!!!

Mrs Moore and I would like to thank you all for your support and the lovely Christmas gifts you gave us. We are very grateful to you all. 

Let's hope that 2021 is better than 2020!

 

Science - Conductors and Insulators

In our science lesson today we have been making circuits using wires, a battery and a bulb. We have been investigating different materials to see if they are conductors or insulators ( if they make the bulb light up).

We are very proud of Callum who has decided that he would like to support the Lighthouse project this year. He has written a letter to Mrs Kelleher asking her to support the charity so we are having a Non-Uniform day on Friday.

He went to the Lighthouse project in Middleton and made this video. Click on the link below to find out more.

https://fb.watch/1R-Fj9O7aB/

We are starting to get ready for Advent. We are painting a picture for the school entrance. Look out for our work.  

What a busy week!

This week we have been learning about Egyptian mummies. We learned about how this was done and we mummified an apple. We have made our own sarcophaguses and made a mummy to go inside. Just for fun we had races to see who could turn their friend into a mummy. I think we need a bit more practice!!

 

As well as learning about mummies, we have been designing and making circuit games in DT. Our games have questions on them and the correct answers are connected with wire. When a correct answer is chosen the lightbulb lights up. 

Circuits

The children have been making electrical circuits using wires, batteries, bulbs and motors. 

Design Technology

 Today we went outside to build our Egyptian Shadufs. We gathered all the materials we needed in the school grounds and then we worked in groups to build it. We had to make lots of adjustments to make it balanced and we had to persevere when we had a problem. 

We did a great job and all of our shadufs could take water from the water bowl. 

Armistice day

Today we spent the day learning about Armistice day. We began the day with an assembly all about Remembrance. We then completed a reading comprehension about War and then we read the poem "In Flander's Field"

We performed the poem and analysed the features of it. We then went on to create pictures from the war and we then placed our poems over the top of our pictures. 

We were very respectful when doing our 2 minutes silence and all agreed how we should all remember the sacrifice of those who have died or been injured for our freedom. 

Egyptians

Today we have been learning about Egyptian Shadufs. We found out why they were important for farming in Ancient Egypt. We looked at how they were made and then created a prototype in readiness for making a large one outside next week.

Well what a great first half term we have had!

We have been so busy in class. We have been learning to write using the Jane Considine "Write stuff" approach. Initially we found it quite demanding but now we are using much better vocabulary and writing more interesting sentences. We have been reading and enjoying Roald Dahl's BFG and in Religion we have studied the family tree of Jesus. We have learned all about St Josephine Bakhita.

In Maths we have covered place value and addition and subtraction of 4 digit numbers and in topic work we have been studying ancient Egypt. We have made clay models and printed using heiroglphics. We have carried out research on Egypt and made our own papyrus paper and used it to create maps of Egypt.

We have worked really hard and have earned a good half term rest.

 

Look at this amazing letter written by Adam based on the book "The day the crayons quit"

As Year4C seem to love animals so much I have decided to have a pet's corner. Send me your photos of your lovely pets.

I know this isn't a real pet but Hattie has sponsored a guide dog. What a lovely thing to do!

Patrick has been out with his family looking for birds. He walked around the golf course searching for them. Well done Patrick.

Year 4C have many talents. Look at this slideshow to see all the great things we have been doing.

It is really important whilst we are at home to make sure we are getting lots of exercise. I would love to see your photos of how you are managing to keep fit.

Well done to Olivia, Adam and Lucy for their great food chain work.
