Term 6 Week 5 29th June 2020
This is the last you will hear from me for a while as I am now off on maternity leave and waiting for the baby to arrive. I am sure you will all hear the news once he or she has appeared. Thank you all so much for my gift and amazing book. I’ve loved going through it and reading your messages. I will treasure and keep it forever! I really enjoyed teaching you guys this year and am so sorry it was cut short. You’ll see me about in September, I’ll pop in to visit and will be picking up Matthew so won’t be too far away! I’ve tried to make contact with as many parents as I could this week, apologies if I didn’t get to yours. Mr Wilson will be taking over Year 4 so will continue to make calls, set home learning and monitor the gmail account. Keep sending him in your work as it’s not too late to get some more house points before the end of the year.
Amazingly this week I want you to do the work that is actually for this week! Week 10 (w/c 29thJune). This week’s work is all about handling data so something really different. You’ll be looking at different types of charts including line graphs, interpreting them and comparing statistics. Make sure that you are watching the videos before having a go at the worksheets so that you get the right vocabulary to go along with the graphs. I’ve opened up the Statistics section on Mathletics. There’s quite a bit to go through! What you could do is the “Something Easier” work first (further down the page) as a bit of a refresher, then try the White Rose and then the main Mathletics work. Up to you but there’s plenty to keep you busy!
Spellings this week are all adverbials. We did a lot of work on adverbials this year, they are words that are used to give more detail to a verb. This week’s adverbials are all about frequency, so how often it happens or possibility, the chance of it happening. These are super words which could be used as fronted adverbials followed by a comma or just in the main clause of a sentence.
I think most of you have finished the first booklet for Mission Possible so I am attaching the Amazing Aliens one. Please do have a go at one of these at least. Do a couple of pages a day as it will keep you familiar with the Talk 4 Writing process.
Thank you to everyone who sent in work for the Minibeast project. I am so impressed with what you did and that everyone did something so original! If you are still working on something keep going and send it in, it doesn’t matter if it’s a bit late!
For those of you who are done we are going to do something different for the last few weeks of school. Children’s Art Week will be running for the next 3 weeks and we would like you to take part. Each week there will be a different theme for you to think about. This week’s theme is The Natural World. You could have a look at the website and some suggested activities but we know how creative you are and that you can think up your own ideas! It could be sketching, painting, sculpture, photography, animation, modelling, textiles, the list is endless! Have a walk about your local area and see what inspires you. Is it the sky, the trees, the animals or the flowers? Or is it the fruit and veg in your kitchen? Maybe you’d like to look at the work of some other artists who have been inspired by the natural world and try to recreate or reimagine something they have done? We will be awarding house points for every child who takes part and the bigger the effort the bigger the reward! It would be great if you could explain a bit about what you have created so we understand where you got your inspiration from.
Don't forget to join in the Virtual School Games. Miss Sadler will award 20 house points for each attempt you log on the website.
And that’s it! Have a super week and hopefully see you all again soon. Have a great summer!
