Dear Year 4
Mr Woodsell, Mrs Lee and Miss Chapman are delighted to welcome you to the Remote Learning platform. Remember these values to help you in your learning:
Reflectiveness, Reciprocity, Resourcefulness and Resilience
We hope each of you enjoyed your half-term break - you all truly deserved it! Last term you all really impressed us with your commitment towards your learning. Not only were many of you following the online learning we provided but you were also making your own learning opportunities - fantastic!
This term's topic is an exciting one...
'What lurks below?'
We are going to be exploring the answer to this topic through our writing, art, geography, science and much much more! It is going to be a 'whale of a time!'
See next week for the Economic and Wellbeing week!
This week we are marking National Rainforest Day! It is celebrated on Monday 22nd June.
Across Year 4, we have Eco-Warriors and many other children who show interest in caring for our environment! If you have the time this week check out this website: https://worldrainforestday.org/resources/. It has lots of ideas of activities you may choose to do to.
In light of it being National Rainforest Day, we would like to encourage as many Year 4's to be as Eco friendly as possible this week! If you choose to do an activity which has been inspired by this, we would love to see it!
Not only are we recognising National Rainforest Day but also:
Economic and Financial Well- Being Week
By the end of the week, the children across the school will have explored:
On Wednesday 24th we have dedicated the afternoon to PSHE where we will explore this further. Below are some other activities which you may choose to do across the week (if you have the time!)
An enjoyable game which will help you experience the questions above is Monopoly!
Keep up all of the hard work Year 4; we are all very proud of you :-)
Don't forget your class Zoom call this week! If you are unsure of the day/time email your class teacher to find out!
Welcome back Year 4!
We hope you all had a wonderful Easter and made the most of the sunshine!
Today marks the start of Term 5 with our new enquiry:
'Is our body a machine?'
This question has created some pretty phenomenal discussions among us and our families. I wonder what you and your family think? Why not talk about the question over lunch or dinner? We would be interested to know your initial thoughts! Alongside this enquiry, we will be reading Demon Dentist by David Walliams! There is a sub-page where videos will be uploaded of Chapters. There is no expectation or requirement for the book to be purchased.
Just a reminder that we will be calling each of you every week - something which we are very much looking forward to! It has felt like an age since we spoke to most of you!
You will see what we have already added to our Year 4 Gallery from last term. We are looking forward to sharing more of you exceptional work from this term. If you would like us to publish your work, email it across to the school office!
Mr Woodsell, Miss Chapman and Mrs Lee :-)
