OPTIONAL EASTER LEARNING PROJECT
We know how hard you have been working over the last 3 weeks; children and grownups! We have put some ideas together to help keep you busy over the Easter Holidays. However, it is important to have a rest and try and treat the holidays as you would normally! Please find an Optional Easter learning project below.
Home Learning Summer Term 2020
Over the last week, there have been some new home learning resources produced by several different providers. The Department for Education have funded the production of Oak National Academy and BBC bitesize have also produced a home learning schedule. Both of these websites provide three daily lessons: English, maths and one foundation subject. Oak National Academy has lessons for all year groups from Reception and includes lessons (based on the specific year group objectives) taught by teachers that progress over the course of a week. The BBC bitesize website starts from Year 1 and the lessons are based upon specific objectives from each group (but do not necessarily follow on from each other).
The websites for these resources are:
Teachers will continue to provide weekly themed sheets on the school website and we will continue to update mymaths, Active Learn primary, TT rockstars, Purple Mash and spag.com.
Visit the Pearson's Active Learn website where you can access our Bug Club. Here we have allocated your child a selection of reading books for the book band they are currently on. Once they have logged in, if they click ‘My Stuff’ they will see the books that have been allocated to them. The log ins for this website will be sent via SeeSaw. Please listen to your child read as you normally would. Choose at least two books to read per week.
Remember to use your home journal codes to start creating your journals on Seesaw. The teachers can see what you are posting and share activities and announcements.
Wow what an amazing term! We have been very busy settling into year 4. We have been focusing on our times tables and we have lots of children ready to achieve their certificates. We also had a visit from our Class Governor and the children were very excited to ask questions about his role and his daily life. We visited Church for our Class Mass and the children are asking lots of questions about Holy Communion.
In Maths, we have been focusing on roman numerals, rounding and addition and subtraction. We rounded to the nearest 10, 100 and 1,000 and discussed why we might use this in our day to day lives. We enjoyed using exchange in addition and subtraction and the challenge it gave us. We focused on which way we add and subtract and what we are being asked for in worded questions.
In English, we have looked at The Tin Forest and poetry. the children thoroughly enjoyed creating a setting based on the Tin Forest, many of which ended up on the display board! We enjoyed looking at The Eagle and using synonyms and antonyms to edit a classic poem.
In Science, we have been looking at sound and how it travels. we carried out an experiment by going outside and looking at how volume changed with distance and why this happened. We also used instruments to look at the difference between pitch and volume. Our final lesson involved looking at materials and soundproofing and why we thought that this happened.
In Creative, we have thoroughly enjoyed learning the Geography of Penwortham. We went on a learning walk through Penwortham following a map. we also looked at the difference between old and new Penwortham. We tried to come up with reasons for the changes. we even used a comparison of old and new Penwortham to create a watercolour comparison.
In our Come and See topic of People, we looked at family trees and what family means to us. We looked at the family tree of Jesus and where he came from and discussed the relevance of each member of the family tree. We really enjoyed creating our own family tree.
The children have been working very hard and have been reading in some unusual places which we have started in our class. I am very impressed with all of the reading taking place. Keep up the hard work Year 4!
