Home Learning Note
Thank you very much for your efforts with your home learning. We have had some wonderful uptake.
Please don't forget TT Rockstars, Spelling Shed, Reading Eggs, Spanish and Purple Mash either!
We would like to remind all children and parents/carers that these are very different times to the normal school term. We are providing a lot of ways that children can learn at home but we must be clear that there is no stipulation that all should be completed. We simply offer a range of ideas for the range of learners in our year group. Children learn in many different ways; we have seen cooking, building, science experiments and dancing to name but a few and at this time, we feel that these are as valuable as working on maths and English.
We do not wish to push too much school into people's homes and remind you that, whilst lots of learning will help children keep up, we value the time and pressures that you may have at home.
Please do your best to stay safe and enjoy your time as a family, try lots of different things, chip in with some home learning from our website and lastly, stay positive.
Thanks - Year 4 Team
Lesson 5 - play battleships!
These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much-loved king is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim for our Kingdom. Not to mention all the other wannabe monarchs! The famous Bayeux Tapestry tells a story of the events of 1066. What happened when, and how did William come to be called the Conqueror?
Are you ready for a Norman invasion? Then don your armour and watch your back!
Our next topic is the Romans and we will begin learning about when the ancient Romans invaded Britain. How did they do it? Why were they so powerful? Can you name any individual Romans that were important at this time?
Well done to Charlotte who took part in Mix 96's 'Pocket Money Challenge' today (Friday 22nd May). She had to answer 10 questions in 60 seconds and would get £1 for every question she got correct. Charlotte got all 10 correct and won £10! Fantastic news Charlotte!
Investigate how music has changed over the ages. You could go as far back as some of the great composers, such as Mozart and Beethoven!
You could create:
A music timeline,
A learning poster,
Or even record yourself playing music or singing (your videos can be emailed to your teacher and Mrs Fetta will put the best ones on our website!)
Be as creative as you can and have fun!
NATRE (National association of teachers of religious education) are holding a spirited arts competition. This is an exciting RE project that you can do at home! All the information that you will need is on the attached document. Please send you art works directly to NATRE (address in the attachment). Have fun, be creative and good Luck!
In the challenge zone we would like to put on challenges that you create for other members of year 4. These could be tricky maths problems, trivia questions or even creative challenges (i.e.make up dance routines to a particular song).
Please send your ideas to your class email and your teacher will upload great ones here.
