I'm so excited to be with you all day today and even more excited that it's WBD.  I just can't wait. 

Here is the plan for the day:

Maths - Revision of finding factors, times table fact families and how we can use our times tables facts to find fractions of amounts.

English - World Book Day Activities

Free Reading Session - Spend 20-30 minutes this morning reading a book of your choice! Let me know what you have been reading.

Afternoon - More World Book Day Activities and more Free Reading Time

Story Time

 

Remember, there is no need to dress up for World Book Day this year, but if you would like to wear a costume to our Teams Meetings, feel free. I hope you have an excellent day today and I will see you on Teams at 9:30 am for our final Wednesday of Remote Learning.

Miss Mount

Wednesday 3rd March 2021

Wow Year 4 - I was so impressed with your kennings! I think you could all be poets smiley.

We will be having another go at finding fractions of amounts today. I hope you can see how it relates to our times tables knowledge - you can keep practising this on TT Rockstars.

Happy Wednesday Afternoon Year 4!

This afternoon we will be doing session 5 of our PSHE unit - 'Images in the Media' and then finishing off with some PE.  The PE can be your new exercise routine (and you can wear PE kit and be a PE teacher for the afternoon if you want to) or we will put up the (2nd to last) Joe Wicks video or you can do your own choice of Cosmic Yoga or exercise with your family!  Have a great afternoon!

Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Hello Year 4! I am looking forward to creating some kennings with you today. 

Well done to everyone who has been practising on TT Rockstars. It is very important that we have learnt all the multiplication tables by the summer - so keep up the good work!

Tuesday 2nd March Afternoon

Happy Tuesday Afternoon Y4!  We will be doing lesson 3&4 of the PSHE unit: Live Well, Eat Well.  You will be asked to create an exercise timetable and an exercise routine.  It might be best if you do them both after watching both videos.  

After that we will do our last French lesson for a few weeks.  It is a recap of all our French so far.  Please make sure you have finished the Rainforest scene with the lift up flaps and that you have played the games on the video 3.  Then you can rewatch the 2nd video and see if you can sing a long to the Rainforest Quest song.  Lastly, please write 3 (silly) sentences (at least) using the Power-point grid.  E.g. Je cherche un petit perroquet violet.  Have a lovely afternoon. MM

Rainforest Quest - write at least 3 sentences using the grid to help you.

Monday 1st March 2021

Welcome back to learning after a gorgeous sunny weekend! I hope you all had a fun time and got outside to enjoy the lovely weather with your families. Just one more week of remote learning until we will all be together in the class room again - I am really looking forward to that! Keep going with the great effort that you have been putting in. Well done Year 4 smiley.

 

Monday 1st March Afternoon.

Happy Monday Afternoon Year 4!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  This afternoon we will be starting a new PSHE unit: Live Well, Eat Well.  We are going to do 2 lessons today as they are quite short and they have a PE warm up in them as well.  After that, please do your choice of PE - we will upload the Joe Wicks once it has aired. Or you can do your choice of Cosmic Yoga or some exercise with your family.  Have a good afternoon. MM

Happy Fridaaaaaayyyyyy Year 4  :) 

 

I'm looking forward to seeing you all day.  Today will look like this:

 

9:30 Check-in and setting up for maths (arithmetic).

It's test 2 today.  Please have a go at all questions but you can leave 18 and 21.  I will be on chat - so PLEASE ask if you want me to talk you through any questions at all.  Send me a direct message!  When you have finished, please mark it and send me: Your score, the numbers of any that you didn't get (don't worry about this) and let me know if you DON'T know why you got those ones wrong.

 

If you finish early for any session, today is a bit of a finishing off day so please make sure you have finished the photography (and if you can send any of it to me, even better).  If you can't make a gallery yourself and can send me the photos, then I will try and help.  If you have finished that, please finish your Rainforest Quest lift up flap and send me a photo of that as well (if you can please).  Then you can TT or read (and do AR quizzes).  If you have anything left to do for Mrs Gilbert then do that as well.  If you have done all of this and want something else to do, just let me know!

 

10:50 Check-in and SPAG.  I made the quiz today based on things we have covered.  Again, if you are stuck, send me a message so that I can help.  Please mark it and let me know your score and anything you were stuck on.

1:30 Check-in to set up for PE and say 'cheerio' for the weekend.

Happy Thursday Afternoon everyone!  We will be doing:

Today we are going to try and create a gallery of the pictures you have taken.  Ideally, you will use a laptop or tablet and present them digitally but if you can't do this, you could send the pictures you want to present to us (WITH the titles and comments that Miss B talks about) and we can try for you.  Let us know if you need help.

 

French - Finish jungle flip picture and play the games from the end of Mrs. Wilson's last video (Rainforest Quest 3). You might want to watch the video again.  If you finish early, you can run through the Power-point and remind yourselves of what you've learnt so far.

If you can draw your own sloth, frog, butterfly and monkey, it will look much better!

Wednesday Afternoon Sessions:

Good Afternoon Year 4!  We are really looking forward to the next couple of sessions of Geography, about Chile in South America.  Miss P will be introducing the activity that we are going to do for Chile so please look at the Power-point before you look at today's Chile video.  After the second session on Chile, we will then give you some sessions to complete the task, so no need to start until you have seen both videos.  You won't need any resources for today's session but you might want to take notes, to help you with the task at the end. 

 

After Geography, it will be time for some PE.  You can do the  Joe Wicks' video below or your choice of Cosmic Yoga or your choice of exercise (ideally at least 20 mins) with your families.  Have a great afternoon!  MM & Miss P

Tuesday 26th January 2021

We have had an excellent start to the week in Year 4. Today is the last day we will spend writing our stories. Please make sure that you read them through carefully, checking that you have the correct puctuation and making some last minute improvements!

I cannot wait to see them and will be sticking a copy in your English books here at school.

In Maths, we will be practising more division with remainder calculations. 

See you at 9.30am!smiley

Mrs Gilbert

Afternoon Everyone!! Today is a bit of a finishing off day. 

FIRST do the South American Geography lesson.  Then finish off the following things (in order of priority):

Your stories for Mrs Gilbert

Your RE Posters for me

Your spelling (plural possessives) from this morning and let us know how you get on

Anything else you need to finish!

IF you have finished all of these things then please do some PE to wake up on this dank day and then you could use the South America videos to complete a list of similarities and differences between the UK and South America.

See you very soon. MM

Monday 25th January 2021

Good Morning Year 4!

Hopefully, you have all had a great weekend with your families. I have been busy baking and going for lots of dog walks in the fresh air.

Today, we will be writing the fifth section of our stories and thinking about how we can present them when they are finished. In Maths, we will be developing our knowledge of division to include calculations that involve remainders. 

I'm looking forward to seeing you online at 9.30am!

Mrs Gilbertsmiley

 

 

Monday 25th, Afternoon

This afternoon, you should be finishing your ISLAM leaflet/poster/presentations.  Remember, you can look at the power-point and notes (crib sheet) from last week to help you.  If you spend about 45-50 minutes on this and please send it in to me - either via the direct chat or email will probably be easiest.  If you have completed a paper version, you could ask your parent/carer to take a photo on a phone and send it via the phone.  If you have any problems with this, please don't hesitate to let me know.  We have had some absolutely AMAZING completed work already and I hope to be showing this tomorrow when we start the afternoon session at 1:30. I'll be covering Year 3 but we will work something out.  After this, you will definitely need some oxygen to your brains so either have a go at the Joe Wicks video (we will upload this after it's aired), some cosmic yoga or some exercise of your choice (and approved of by parents/carers)!  Have a fabulous afternoon! Don't forget to check in at 3.15 if you can and hopefully we can share even more work! MM

When you have done the word class sheets, have a go at this reading comprehension!

Friday 22nd Afternoon Session:

This afternoon, you should get started on your ISLAM leaflet/poster/presentation.  Remember, you can look at the power-point and notes (crib sheet) from yesterday to help you.  If you spend about 45-50 minutes on this and see how far you get.  You'll need a break after this, so go and do some exercise or try the Joe Wicks video, which I'll upload once it has aired this morning.

Have a wonderful weekend and see you on Monday.

Good Morning Year 4!

Today we will be continuing to practise division and writing our stories. I have really enjoyed what I have been sent to read so far so please keep going!

Spelling, this week, will be revising how to use an  apostrophe for possession and moving on to show possession for plural nouns. 

See you at 9.30!smiley

 

 

Thursday afternoon sessions:

Good afternoon Year 4! In RE today, we will be watching some of the video link below and then you will need to have a look at the Power-Point below, for information on how to start the poster/leaflet/presentation that you will be doing to finish this unit.  

ONLY WATCH THE RE VIDEO UP TO 10 MINUTES AND 25 SECONDS. Then look at the RE Power-point.  Don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.  The notes you will need are under the Power-point.

 

After RE, we will be starting a new topic about South America.  We are incredibly excited about this new unit as it's close to what we would have been doing in normal lessons in school.  It's a fascinating continent.  You might want to download the picture from the 'Maps' book (Maps by Aleksandra Mizelinska and Daniel Mixelinska).  It's an incredible way of looking at the human, physical and natural geography in a map form.  At the end of these sessions we will give you some afternoons where you will be producing your own version of these maps for a particular South American country.  We are really looking forward to this.

Do watch the video and enjoy it.  We will talk more about producing the map over the next few geography lessons.

The Geography links and pictures of the maps are below:

Maps of South America and Equador - amazing pictures for you to download and enjoy (MAPS by Aleksandra Mizielinska and Daniel Mizielinski)

Year 4 Remote Learning Wednesday 13th January 2021

Good morning Year 4!

Well done to all of you for engaging so well with school even though it is so very different. You are doing a great job of continuing with your learning but remember if there is anything you are not sure of, you can send us an individual message to ask questions at any time. 

Today, our Maths will be slightly different so that I can check that you are all understanding the column method for multiplication which is new to us this year. I have uploaded the normal White Rose link and a Powerpoint that I will be sharing in the live session. Please choose which activity you would rather do today. I will explain more in our session. 

This afternoon, we will be starting an RE unit about Islam and we will be having some time for PE.

See you all later!

Hello Year 4!

We hope you have all had a nice weekend and made the most of being outside when you could. There was even some lovely sunshine to enjoy in places.

Please remember that when you finish reading any book at home you can log in to Accelerated Reader to take a quiz. It will be very good for us to be able to check in on your progress. 

I have uploaded the learning for today below. Hopefully I will see you all on TEAMs at 9.30am to start our learning for the day.

Mrs Gilbert and Miss Mount

Remote Learning - Friday 8th January 2021

Hello Year 4

It was lovely to see so many of you engaging with the learning yesterday and I enjoyed reading your responses in the chat area. I hope to see lots more tomorrow! You are able to send individual messages to myself and Miss Mount if you have questions that you do not want to share with the whole group chat. 

Thank you to those children who have sent photos and have let us know how you got on with the tasks. Please remember to download the answers for the Maths and mark your work so you can let us know how you got on. 

Mrs Gilbert and Miss Mount

 

RESOURCES YOU MAY NEED FOR FRIDAY'S LESSONS:

 

Resources for maths for Friday:  You may want to find something you can use as counters.  Up to 30 if you can.  You might be able to use pasta or rice or something similar.

 

Resources for science for Friday: Pen/pencil, ruler if you can, your home learning book or paper and you may need/want colouring pencils, but if you don't have this, don't worry.

Resources for music for Friday: Mr P says you may want headphones, but that is only so you can listen to him on the headphones, so you don't disturb anyone else. Please don't worry at all if you don't have them. You might want a pen/pencil and paper if you want to take notes.

 

Also on the 5/6th sessions, which will be on Tuesday next week, there is the option to make a string telephone.  If you want to do this and you're able to get the resources, you might want to hold onto some yoghurt pots and see if you can find some string. Again, don't worry if you can't.  You'll need an adult to help put a hole in the bottom of the yoghurt pots.

MM

Autumnal Art!

Following on from our volcanic collages, we planned an autumn collage using fallen leaves and twigs to reflect the browns, reds, oranges, yellows and greens that you see at this time of year. We used double-sided sticky tape as our fixative and created the trunk from bits of leaves and the branches from small twigs, all of which creates lots of different shades and textures.
