Welcome to Class 4!
Home Learning 30.3.20
Dear Class 4,
It was really lovely to see you all on Friday for our Zoom catch up. I look forward to see you again on Tuesday.
Some of you have started to send me work that you are doing. I've loved seeing what you have been up to and look forward to hearing about your activities this week. Again, to reiterate, please do what you are able to. You have to fit your learning into and around your parents schedules. These are unusual times and we have to adapt the best we can. If you can't complete everything, please don't worry.
I've added another website address to Maths. This is so you can keep up with your grid times tables tests or division facts tests. Remember, you have 10 minutes!
If you have any questions, you can ask me on either Tuesday or Friday.
Keep safe, keep happy, keep curious.
Love Mrs R
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.
