Welcome to Class 4
Dear Class 4,
We are now entering the last few weeks of this school year. You have done so well under such difficult circumstances. A couple more weeks of learning and then it is your well-deserved summer holiday. Think about some of the strategies we discussed to stay motivated but importantly, don't worry about not completing all the learning tasks. Just do your best.
I am really looking forward to seeing you all at 'meet your teacher' afternoon at school on Monday 6th July. Make sure you go to the toilet and have a drink of water before coming to school.
As always, please upload any work that you would like to share on your seesaw accounts. We really enjoy seeing what you have been up to.
Keep safe, keep happy, keep curious!

Easter Break - websites that might interest you
This is Carol Vorderman's maths website. It might help you to go over some of the units we have learnt about so far (place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions and decimals).
This website provides audio stories. Make sure you are on the 'elementary' page. Try to read everyday!
The scouts provide lots of indoor activities on their website. Have a go!
This is a coding website. Choose an activity. Watch the introductory tutorial. Have a go at the activity. If you like it, you can create your own account to save your progress.
Maths - keep practising your time tables up to the 12x. It is better to practise for a few minutes every day rather than once a week for an hour. There are plenty of resources online to help you do this.

I'll be assigning tasks on Mathletics. These tasks will consolidate the learning we have covered so far. You can practise your mental maths skills on Live Mathletics with children from around the world.
Reading - Please read daily. This can be from books, encyclopedias, online newspapers etc. If you find something interesting, write a blurb and email me. I can share it with the class.
Get practical - help your parents if they need it. For example, you can practise maths by weighing ingredients; sorting - matching socks after laundry has been done, putting cutlery away, sorting your cupboards/toys - think about how you could classify all the items. Practise telling the time from an analogue/digital clock. If your parents are making a sandwich, practise giving instructions on how how to do this. Be clear!
If you get restless, it's the perfect time to get creative. Make up a new game! You could make a code from the letters on a page you are reading; treasure hunt for a brother/sister, use recycling items to make a sculpture, draw, create a cartoon. Use your imagination before you log on to play a game.
Any ideas you come up with, email them to us and we'll share them with the class.
Love from Mrs Ruffels and Mrs Shaw x

With a parent, research the Antarctica Treaty on the following website:
Look at the Imagine Explorers documemt. Work through the different points. In the 'Reimagine' section, create a poster using a word document. Think about all the skills we have learnt so far: font style, font size, font colour, underline, inserting and formatting an image. Insert a text box or shape to include written work.
Complete the Antarctica wordsearch.

English - Arthur and the Golden Rope
In English, Class 4 have been reading the book Arthur and the Golden Rope. We have reached the point in the story where the main character, Arthur, is in the position where he is the only one who can save his town. In order to do this he has to go on a quest to the Land of the Viking Gods. We debated whether he should go on this dangerous quest.
