Elm Class

Hello everyone, just an update from me. I hope everyone who can, is with their mothers today and enjoying the sunshine together. 

I just want to say how proud I am of my class and how they've handled this unprecedented situation. They may only be young but they showed a maturity beyond their years.

Over the next few weeks at least, I'll only see a few of you but do not think I've forgotten you! We'll be sending out lots of work for you to do!

As most of you won't be in school, make sure you help around the house, listen carefully to what your adults tell you and I know it's tough but you've got to educate yourselves now. We'll help as much as we can but the responsability rests on your shoulders. 

Try and read every day, stories are wonderful and you have a chance to explore lots of stories! There are so many opportunites all around us to help us learn, all you have to do is find them.

If you have any problems with accessing home learning, please let me know. We will add generic items to the class page from feedback but we will not be emailing directly.

Your daily tasks will be displayed here. Here are some other websites that you can access if you would like some more. If you come across anything you enjoy and think your classmates would too, let me know on the contact form and I will add it on.

Joe Wicks will be having kids PE lessons every day on his YouTube channel, Monday to Friday at 9am. This would be a great way to start the day and you can do them all in your living room!

If you are unable to come to school, please practice spelling from the year 3 and 4 spelling list and your times tables (you can use the website below). Read for at least 15 minutes each day, make a list of books you have enjoyed so you can recommend them to your class when you come back to school.

Science

To start our new Science topic, we all planted beans to take home.  Throughout the school closure we would like you to take care of your plant and keep  a weekly diary of the changes you see. Each time you observe your plant draw a diagram of what you see, label it and write a sentence eg:  week 1- There is no evidence of any shoots yet then draw the plant pot with the compost in.  Label it plant pot, compost and indicate here the bean is under the compost.

Lookout for first shoots, first leaves, first proper leaves, more new leaves, first flowers, first beans.  Take measurements every week.  When the plant becomes too big for the pot, plant it outside.  You will need to support it with a stick and you will need a grown up to help you with the measurements as it will probably grow taller than you!

Year 3 and 4 residential trip to Ilam Hall.

Here are a selection of photographs of the children enjoying the various activities. They completed a selection of team building games, made egg rockets, completed a small and large orienteering course, went on a guided walk to find fossils, learned how to walk in mud with only a bit of falling over, made dragonfly beads , designed and made a bag to keep and went on a photographic treasure hunt. While we were there it was sunny, windy, rainy, hail and best of all, when we woke up on Wednesday morning it had snowed. The children have had a fabulous experience.

Last week, we studied cubism and the children really enjoyed it. We used pastels, water colours, collage and we looked at how a cubist artist will use shading. The children enjoyed the abstract nature of cubism and how the same picture can have so many different opinions.

We are really trying to improve our times tables skills in school ready for our online Multiplication Tables Check in June 2020 so we are doing work on them every day. The children should know their multiplication and division facts up 12x12 at the end of year 4. 

For further practice at home, please click here http://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/5-7-years/multiplication-and-division and for fun maths games!

Today we recounted the story of a few fairy tales and this one was a recount of Goldilocks using puppets!

Wow! Look how busy the teachers have been over the summer creating exciting places for children to enjoy their favourite books. If you have any favourite books, bring them in and share them with your class.
