DT Project

 

We have set the challenge to make a plant pot and toy car out of plastic bottles and this is due to be completed by Friday 29th January. See the videos below for step by steps instructions on how to do this. You do not need to buy any fancy materials/resources - remember the aim of the project is to recycle as many materials as we can so see what you can use at home. If you do not have a plastic bottle, we have plenty in school - Miss Bevan and Miss Clark have been collecting!

How To Make a Car - Powered Car - Very Simple

This video will show you how to make a very simple Rubber Band powered Car using plastic bottles.

Plastic Bottle Planter Ideas

Plastic Bottle Plant Pots Ideas

DT Research Findings

In class, we researched how we could recycle plastic bottles. These were some of the ideas we found. Using these, we are going to design our own plant pot and toy car.

PE Challenge

Remote Learning Spring 2021

Please find above the letter you will be receiving shortly through your doors clarifying remote learning for this half term. If you have any questions, queries or worries please do not to hesitate to get in touch with your class teacher. We are here to help in any way we can. 

 

Work to support home learning for all subjects on the timetable will be uploaded to purple mash on a daily basis and will be made available for a number or days in order to facilitate completion. If you are unsure of anything please contact your class teacher.

Submitting completed work

You will find a message from your teacher(s) every day from Monday 11th January on this page, to make sure that you know what to do. There will be Maths learning which has an accompanying video which will help your child to understand what to do. Sometimes the task sheet has been adapted so do not worry if you think questions are missing or seem a little out of sequence. Additional challenges will also be set for this who want to choose to challenge themselves. Answers to the maths questions will be made available the following week to allow you to check your answers.  In addition there will be a reading activity based on our text for this half term. English will be either a grammar based task or a short writing activity. The remainder of the home learning that is set will be linked to our mini mission learning or learning in other areas of the curriculum. You will find all of this in the 2Do's section of purple mash when your child logs in. (If you are using a paper pack it will contain all of the learning for the week). 

 

Your child can complete this work in a number of ways:

  • Some 2Do's can be completed and saved to purple mash and feedback will be given by the class teacher on purple mash.
  • Your child can complete the task/activity in their book - either by writing the answers in, copying into books or by printing the appropriate pages and sticking in. If you are able to, you can photograph completed activities and upload them to purple mash or email to the class teacher for marking and feedback. 
  • Tasks can be completed in the above ways and left in the book to be returned at half term if you are not able to upload it or send via email.
  • There is no need to print off all of the sheets and glue them in - answers can be written into books. Please write the date that the work was set at the top of the page when writing in mini mission books (it really helps us to find the correct task).

If you have any concerns or problems with accessing home learning please email the class teacher direct or call and we will do our very best to help you. 

Children in Year 4 are expected to complete a minimum of 4 hours of learning at home. We suggest children who are learning at home follow a similar timetable to the one below in order to structure their day. However, as long as the required daily amount of learning in complete this is flexible and can be adjusted as needed.

 

Most of our home learning work is set on Purple Mash or Sumdog. The children have been given their own log-on's for these websites. On both sites we can set 2Do's or tasks and we can see how the children complete their learning.  We are then able to give feedback via Marvellous Me (our 'phone app) or e-mail. These sites can also be used for the children to catch up on any learning they may have missed previously or just for fun. If you are unsure of your child's log-in, check out their home school diary. Click on the links below to access the websites. 

Purple Mash

Please find the link to purple mash. Task and activities linked to our current learning will be set via this platform.

Maths

 

In addition to the daily work set, use the sites below to practise quick recall of number facts and timestables.

Spellings
Above you will find the compulsory word bank for year 3 and 4. Additionally there are handwriting packs to practise both spelling and correct letter formation.

Spring half term spellings

Above, you will find the next 6 weeks worth of spellings that we would have been covering in school. This is includes spelling patterns and spellings for spelling tests.

 

A weekly challenge will be set on SumDog to allow you to practice these words.

Reading

Reading is really important for children's phonic knowledge, confidence and understanding, plus it's great fun. Your child should be undertaking some reading every day and talking about what they have read. Please continue to record reading at home in your child's diary. Try the links below if you are struggling for books to read, there are other sites offering free books for children to read online.

PHSE

 

This half term our PHSE topic is called Respecting the individual. Each week an activity will be set relating to this topic. Below you will find more on what we will cover this half term.

French

 

This half term our French topic is called Families and Faces. Each week an activity will be set relating to this topic. 

Music

 

In school we use www.charanga.com for our music lessons. They have even added amended units for Covid to avoid singing. The children have their own log-ins for this site for Charanga Yuma which caters for access from home.  If you have lost your child's log-in please e-mail us. Click on the link below to access Charanga.

 

Just like Purple Mash, when your child logs in they will have a unit or work set out as a 2Do - alternatively there are a number of other activities they can choose to do whilst logged in. Although we cannot feedback directly like Purple Mash, we can see who has logged in, when and for how long. 

Our Current Topic
Please watch the above video which is the book that we will be using to launch our new topic. You will find further work related to this text and our topic set on Purple Mash.

This story is about the real life story of Isatou Ceesay. Find out more using the following website.

A shocking start to the new term! This is what was awaiting the children on their first day back!
