Friday 27 March
Hello Class 4! I hope you are all keeping safe and well.
I've added a few more learning activities for you to try. You can use these activities as little or as often as you like. Try to keep reading every day. It will be great to hear all about the books you've enjoyed.
Keep fit and active and try to be helpful around the house! Remember, looking after yourself and your family is the most important thing you can do.
The following work is designed to be completed over the coming weeks. There will be further updates to this information depending on how long school is closed for. The majority of the work is intended so that you can work independently. Some of the tasks, such as the history work, are designed to be quite open ended and you can be as creative as you like.
We have provided a workbook for the period of school closure but should you wish to use laptops, tablets, iPads etc. to record and present some of your work, this is also encouraged.
All this coming week you might be able to spot the International Space Station passing over the UK. The space station looks like an aeroplane or a very bright star moving across the sky, except it doesn't have flashing lights or change direction. It will also be moving considerably faster than a typical aeroplane (aeroplanes generally fly at about 600 mph; the space station flies at 17,500 mph.
Keep reading lots at home. If you are running short of reading books, you can use the Oxford Owls website to access a selection of ebooks.

Each day from 9:30 until 10:30 Pie Corbett will lead an English lesson with interactive games and workshops. You will be familiar with the work of Pie Corbett even though you might not know who he is. He created the Talk for Writing approach that we use in school. You can always complete the learning after the broadcast. https://radioblogging.net/
You can even post your work on the blog, if you wish.
There are 365 different images on this website: http://www.pobble365.com/
You could write a story about the picture OR scroll down to use the ideas suggested below the image. The image might even inspire you to research and produce a report or fact-file.
Keep working on your spelling, grammar and punctuation skills through these games and exercises:
White Rose Maths Hub is producing a series of home learning resources which include a short video and a set of focused questions based on the area of learning for the day. Some areas will have been covered by the children, which gives them chance to consolidate previous learning, but others may be new and the videos will be especially helpful for this.
Each week will see a new set of videos and work activities released. There is more guidance on the White Rose Maths hub home learning.
We would like children to select the from the resources provided for their year group. However, if your child finds this too difficult, it is perfectly fine for children to select from an earlier year group.
We follow the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of work in school so the children will be familiar with the layout and style of the problems.
TT Rock Stars – 15 minutes per day. We are currently the 5th speediest school in the local area. Can you get us in the Top 3?
Mathletics – complete the tasks made available and then use the free play options. More tasks will become available if the closure of the school extends over a longer period.
Was life better in Anglo-Saxon Britain or Viking Britain?
Create a booklet or presentation to try to answer this question.
- You could choose to compare the lives of Saxon/Viking:
You could find out about houses, clothes, food, markets and trades; about life in a great hall or life in a village.
Look on our class web page for links to different sites and:
Look at the Archery game on Code Club: https://projects.raspberrypi.org/en/projects/archery
Open the starter project. This contains a simple arrow sprite and a backdrop with a target on.
Follow the instructions carefully to write the code to make your own archery game. Lots of the code is very similar to what we've been using in class recently; we've practised using a broadcast to start an action.
Remember to save your work! This is easiest if you can get a grown up to help you to create a Scratch account. If that's not possible, then go to File, then 'Save to your computer'.
When you want to come back to it, open Scratch, go to File, then 'Load from your computer.'
