COMPETITION TIME- EASTER GARDEN
Can you make an Easter garden this week at home?
Do not go to the shops but use objects you have already in your house or garden. Try to be creative and create a garden which shows what Easter means to you.
Take a photo of your garden and send it to Mrs Clinch by email-Year3firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please send your photos by Friday 10th April
I will post the winning gardens on the website on Easter Sunday!
Questions about the Coronavirus book
The Grufallo illustrator Axel Scheffler has teamed up with experts to create a free book to explain what the Coronavirus is for children. It aims to answer questions for children between five to nine year olds and help them to understand what they are going through right now.
Covid-19 TIME CAPSULE
We are all living through history. Here is something to use to remember it. We can create a keepsake of this time for us to look back on. Print it off and fill it in :)
Beginning Monday 20 April, BBC Bitesize will publish daily online lessons for all ages. We'll also have a new dedicated TV channel full of learning content, podcasts on BBC Sounds and loads of educational video on iPlayer
Maths factor is an online maths resource for children 4- 12 years old. The resource is currently free due to Covid 19. Register for free and your child will have access to daily maths sessions and games.
Easter is going to be very different for us all this year but below are some links and activities for you to look at over Holy Week. I have attached a cross of hope ppt and activity. It would be lovely if as many of you as possible could create a cross and email me photos of them which we could share on this site. Email is on the home page.

Good afternoon Year 4.
Thank you for all the work you are sending through Purple Mash! I can also see all the other things you have been doing on it so well done to you all.
I am setting more 2do tasks to keep you busy and using the skills you have learnt so far in year 4. Now that you are getting used to Purple Mash I am going to be setting a variety of different topics including PSHE. I bet you are missing one another and so have a go at describing your friends and painting a picture of them. Remember to write in full sentences using the grammar and punctuation you have been using in your daily lessons.
I hope you are trying to enjoy the sunshine anyway that you can, remember to stay safe. I have been looking after my children who are a little confused at the moment (they are only 3 and 1) so we have been doing lots of painting and drawings of our cats.
Remember to keep reading and practising the skills you have learnt in school when doing any piece of work (keep up the good work.)
Keep checking the website for information.
My name is Mr Macklin and I am the Year 4 class teacher. We are very lucky to have Mrs Noble as our class teaching assistant. I am looking forward to getting to know your children over the course of the year.
We will keep you updated with what we are up to in class.
Below you will find the end of year expectations for Year 4.
If you have any queries or questions at any time, please come into school and see us.
Thank you for your support,
The Secretary of State for Education announced on Wednesday 18th March that the 2019/20 national curriculum assessments will not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this includes the Year 4 Multiplications check.
Homework will be given on Fridays and collected in on Wednesdays.
Children should read every night (even if it is one page) and are able to change their books on:
Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
Spellings and Times Tables tests will be done every Wednesday.
World Poetry Day 2019
To celebrate World Poetry Day 2019 we looked at a variety of performance poems. We decided to create a poem that could inspire positivity. As a class we chose to use the poem ‘I Wish’ by Pie Corbett as a model and built our verses in a similar manner.
We finished our class poem and performed it in assembly.
Here is a copy of the poem we created. We are very proud of our hard work, I’m sure you’ll agree.
I wish I could devour unkind words like a crow pecking seeds at a farmer’s allotment.
I wish I could squash bad attitudes like a giant treading on a small abandoned village.
I wish I could climb over the wall of hate like an aeroplane soaring above the clouds.
I wish I could snap away negativity like Thanos clicking his fingers and eliminating half the universe.
I wish I could banish bad words forever like the Minotaur being trapped in Daedalus’ labyrinth.
I wish I could warm cold hearts like the sun melting ice cream on a hot summer’s day.
I wish I could spread joy around the world like confetti being thrown at a wedding.
I wish I could clean negative thoughts like a sponge washing away dirt from our bodies at the end of the day.
I wish I could extinguish fiery tempers like a firefighter dousing a raging fire with their hose.
I wish I could clear the sea of harmful plastics like a mermaid collecting shells on the ocean floor.
The problem is that we shouldn’t need wishes.
St Peter’s RC Primary School
In Art this term, we have been learning about Sculpture. We have studied Alberto Giacometti’s work and have designed and made sculptures inspired by his amazing art. We chose to make sculptures based on St Peter having learnt a little more about his life. We went on a walk around school and looked for an area that would be enhanced by our sculptures. We chose the field just behind the playground and I think the children have done a wonderful job with their art work. When we return to school we will evaluate our work against our designs and write about the process of making our St Peter sculptures.
