Year 4 - Home Learning

10.7.20

Hello Year 4!

We just wanted to send you a quick message to say ‘hello’ and to say how much we are looking forward to welcoming you into Year 5 in September. We have been working with some of you in the key worker group over the last few weeks, so have been able to get to know those children well. In addition, we have seen some of your amazing home learning on your class page.

As you may know, you will have two teachers in Year 5.  Mrs. Young will teach you Monday – Wednesday, and Mrs Johnson will teach you Thursday and Friday. Our teaching assistants this year are Mrs Hamilton and Mrs Sunderland.

We are very excited about the year ahead, and have some wonderful, exciting lessons planned.  Our first topic will have a history focus and will be based on the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings. Hopefully, we will be able to go on an educational visit linked to this in October!  You will also enjoy a Science topic of Space.  In Year 5, we put great emphasis on oracy – so there will be lots of talking, listening, discussion and questioning.  All of this will help develop your thinking skills as well as your language and vocabulary. We know you are a class who love reading and in Year 5 you will continue to enjoy a range of beautiful books and stories as part of your reading lessons and as a stimulus for writing.

We are sure that we will have a wonderful year together, and hope that like us, you are all looking forward to returning to school in September.  We hope that our class will be one full of kindness, positivity, enthusiasm and mutual respect for each other. 

We wish you all a wonderful summer with your families and hope that it is filled with sunshine, fun, laughter and friendship.  Take time to rest and do the things that make you happy.

See you in September! Take care and stay safe,

Best wishes to you and your families,

Mrs Young, Mrs Johnson, Mrs Sunderland and Mrs Hamilton.

Daily expectations during this time.

Take time to do some reading.

Practice your times tables.

Take some exercise.

Find out at least one new fact.

Should any parent or guardian have any questions about the work that I have set, then I can be contacted  at

I will do my best to answer any questions and reply as soon as I can.

Many thanks

Week 16 Photos: The last week

Day 110

Well, it is the last day of school as we know it this year. It certainly has been different, challenging and surprising. I would like to take the time to thank each child’s parent and supporting adults that have been there to help you in your learning this school year. I would also like to thank you for all of your efforts and hard work also during this testing time. I have loved looking at your pictures and work. From the zoom meeting we have named my ducks Daisy and Big V Remember to behave whilst at home, relax and keep your selves safe. See you next year.

Day 109

Another day of drizzle again today. It is about time that Mr Sunshine appeared again. I hope that you are all still keeping safe and are managing to get along with the activities. Remember to behave.

Day 108

Once again we were woken up by the sight of rain today. There was a break around lunch time where it stopped but then began later in the day. I hope that you still have the motivation to try some of the activities this week, I know it is difficult. Remember that if you wish to join our zoom meeting tomorrow at 2:45 pm then email me for the meeting details. Keep safe.

Day 107

I still hope that you are all still feeling well. Today started positively with lots of sunshine but then the showers began. I hope that you haven't been caught in any. Remember the zoom meeting on Thursday at 2:45pm. Fingers crossed that it works. Keep safe.

Day 106

I hope that you are all well and that your weekend was enjoyable. Today's weather has been kinder to us than that at the weekend. I am planning to have a zoom meeting later this week, possibly on Thursday at about 2:30 - 3ish for 20 minutes or so. If you would be interested in your child joining then please email me so that I can send you the link. Keep safe 

Day 104 and Day 105

I hope that you have all had a good weekend and that you are all still in good health. I had an exciting weekend with the ducks relocated to my allotment. They have certainly grown since last week and have settled in really well. Remember to collect any work from school this week should you choose to do so. Keep safe.

Day 103

Pick up of books will be next week, Tuesday 7th, Wednesday 8th and Thursday 9th between 9am and 3pm. Just a quick reminder that if you are coming to pick up your child's books and any other items could you describe the items as best as possible so that I can identify them if I can. It has been another day of mixed weather but I think the weekend is going to get better. Fingers crossed that it does! Work has been loaded for next week. Enjoy your weekend. 

Day 102

It was an awful start to the day today with very heavy downpours of rain. It has improved with lighter showers but overall it has been an unpleasant day. I have started to sort through drawers today and have found quite a few pairs of glasses. If you need them or can list any other items then please contact me through email and we can arrange collection of them. Remember to keep safe. 

Day 101

I hope that everyone is still well and healthy. It is rapidly approaching the end of term, the time when books are readied to send home. To help with this could I ask that if anyone is wanting to pick their children's work up then could you please email me so that I can get it ready for the designated pick up time which is to be finalised shortly. It has been a mainly dry day today but there has been a stickiness in the air. I hope that you have been getting out and about still if you could. Keep safe.

Day 100

It has turned out to be a nice day today with lots of dry weather. I hope that you are managing to complete some of the tasks that have been set for this week. It is important to keep your minds active by completing a little each day and to mix it with other things that interest you, whatever that might be! Keep safe.

Day 99

Well the weather is not at it's best today, cold, windy and drizzly. There has been a constant flow of pictures of your work and they look fantastic. Keep it up.

 

Week 14 photos: Strike a pose

Day 97 and Day 98

I hope that you and your families are still in good health. The weather over the weekend was a bit mixed. If you managed to get outside for some fresh air then well done. Work is accessible on the links above and as usual I am happy to be contacted should there be any issues. I was busy Saturday doing runs for food, cleaning and visiting my mum and dad. Yesterday there was some excitement as I took delivery of some new arrivals for my allotment. I will post photos later. Have a good week. 

Day 96

Well, that is another week gone but at least we can see some light at the end of the tunnel and some small movement towards what we have been used to before Corona virus. Work for next week is available to look at. The weather has been slightly cooler today and the thunder has so far held off. I hope that you are all still keeping safe and behaving yourselves. Have a lovely weekend.

Day 95

I hope that you are all still in good health. Once again the weather has been sunny and hot. Some pictures have been added to the gallery, take a moment to have a look at them. Next weeks work has been added to our page. Remember to keep safe.

Day 94

WOW. It has been a scorcher today with consistently high temperatures. I do hope that you have been sensible and spent some time in the shade as well as enjoying the sun. Keep sending in your photos of any activities that you want to share with others. Keep safe.

Day 93

A great day today with lots of sun. I hope that you have put on plenty of sun cream to prevent you from burning if you have been outside. Make sure that you are all still behaving and doing as you are asked to make things as easy as possible at home. Keep your photos coming in to add to our page. Has anyone spotted the creature yet?

Day 92

A lovely day of sunshine today. Lots of opportunity to get outside and play if you can. I hope that you have managed to have a look at the work for this week and to have made a start on it. Remember to spread out your tasks to suit you, they don't have to be done all at once. Keep safe.

Week 13 photos: Please smile

Day 90 and Day 91

I hope that you and your families are still in good health. The weekend has been nice again. I spent a little time on my allotment this weekend to find that lots of things have begun to really grow. The work for this week is available to see and to complete. Remember that should you need any help then please contact me via email and send any photos of the work and activities that you have been doing. Keep safe. 

Day 89

I hope that you and your families are still in good health. Well today has been indifferent weather wise, with showers and sun. The weekend is supposed to be much better  with the sun expected to return next week. Remember to be sensible over the weekend.

Keep safe.

Day 88

Well the weather has been shocking today. Rain, rain and more rain. I hope that you have been busy at home and remembered to behave for your mums and dads. These types of days are the most challenging! I will upload the work for next week shortly. In the mean time. Stay safe.

Day 87

Sorry about not uploading any photos from my allotment but a rain shower got the best of me. However, I have received some lovely photos of people's work today which you can look at. The weather has been good once again. Keep safe.

Day 86

After a cloudy start we have had some lovely sunshine once again. Let's hope that this continues into the Summer. I will be visiting my allotment later after work and will update you on how my vegetables are growing with a few photos. I wonder, could name them? Keep working hard and remember to keep safe. 

Day 85

Well, today has seen a return of the warmer weather. I hope that you have made the most of it and have been outside in some way. Remember to send me any photos or questions that can be shared on our webpage. Remember to keep safe and to behave.  

Week 12 photos: Strike a pose.

Day 83 and Day 84

Apologies for the late update for the weekend. I hope that you and your families are all in good health. Currently, I am working through a list of jobs ready for the pupils that are arriving into school this week. The work has been loaded onto the website with activities that I hope you will enjoy doing. If you have any queries then please contact me. The weather has been very humid both days with lots of sunshine later in the afternoons. I spent time doing household jobs on Saturday and visited my parents with some shopping. Sunday was a day with all of my immediate family sharing time together. 

Day 82

Well what a dismal day weather wise today, rain, rain and more rain. Let's hope that it picks up soon and the sun begins to shine once again. You will be aware that it is unlikely that we will be together again as a class in school this year so make sure you keep in touch via your photos and emails over the next few weeks. Keep in mind that when we do get back to school that I will always be available for a catch up should you wish too. Remember to keep safe and have a great weekend. 

Day 81

I have prepared work for next week that will be uploaded later. I have been in school today for various meetings about the wider opening of school. More information will be found on the main Corona Virus page as soon as things are confirmed. Remember to keep safe.

Day 80

I spent the  day in school today with our key worker children. The weather was dull but at least the rain held off. I received some photos that have been added to our gallery. It is great to see people trying different things in addition to the work I set. Keep up the good work everyone.

Day 79

I hope that you are all still well. Today has been a humid day if you have been outside and moving about. I have been to water my vegetables on my allotment and dropped some essentials at my parents house. On the work front, I have been planning activities for key worker children for tomorrow. Remember to keep safe.

Day 78

Today was spent in school with key worker children. The weather at least has been dry, and even warm when the sun did break through the clouds. I hope that the tasks will keep you busy and interested this week. Remember to send in your photos of what you are doing. Keep safe.

Week 11 photos: Say cheese!

Day 76 and Day 77

I hope that everyone is still in good health after the weekend. Well, it has been a wet and damp couple of days for us but the plants and flowers have had a much needed water. Watch them and the weeds flourish now! The work for next week is available for you to have a look at. I have not been up to much myself, a check up on my allotment and a bit of football watching. Next week, I am in school more often as the number of key worker children increase so that will bring some form of normality to my week. I will however, be looking forward to seeing and hearing from you via the email system to see what you have been up to.  Remember to keep safe and to behave.

Day 75

I hope that you and your families are still in good health today. The end of another week has seen a showery day and a drop in temperature. Let's hope that there is an improvement over the weekend. The work for next week is on the website. Enjoy your weekend and remember to be sensible and to stay safe.

Day 74

I have begun uploading work for next week today. The weather has been more settled, despite being cloudy with some drops of rain. We haven't had it too bad! Keep safe.

Day 73

A day spent in school with key worker children. The weather has changed, with drizzle for the most part. It will be welcomed by gardeners but not by most. I hope that you are completing the tasks and that you are enjoying them. Keep safe.

Day 72

Another day of lovely sunshine. I hope that you have been outside today as I believe that the weather may be changing for cooler temperatures later in the week. Keep safe.

Day 71

I hope that you and your family members are all still in good health. Another fine day weather wise, lots of sun, something we are getting used to now. I hope that you have managed to complete some of the work that has been set. Remember to send any photos or questions that you might have. Keep safe. 

Week 10 photos: Smile

Day 69 and Day 70

I hope that you are still in good health after the weekend. Saturday was a catch up day with family. Face timing and phone calls. The weather was great again.

Sunday was again glorious. I spent time on my allotment, planting tomatoes, aubergines and cucumbers as well as staring some swede and cabbage from seed and I also ordered something for it. I will keep you updated with it. I spent the afternoon in the garden with my family. Lots of chatter on what we would like to do to improve it! Keep safe and remember to behave.

Day 68

It's Friday again and the weekend is near. I have loaded next weeks work for you to have a go at.

Day 67

I do I hope that you are all still well and good. Again the weather has been sunny and hot today. Plenty of sun cream was needed to prevent you getting burned. I have been focusing on work for next week. I hope that the activities will keep you interested and that you gain new knowledge as well as consolidating ideas. Keep safe.

Day 66

I hope this finds you all well and good. It has been a lovely sunny day today. Plenty of opportunities to enjoy the garden or a walk with your family. I have been into school today to prepare the room for when we eventually open to more pupils. It looks really strange and alien to what I am use to. I have put things that you have left in drawers to one side. Hopefully they will be collected in the future.  Remember to behave and be sensible. Keep safe.

Day 65

I hope you are still behaving and are well. I hope that you have been out in the garden or for a walk making the most of the sunshine. Keep safe.

Day 64

What a great day weather wise, lots of sun and time in the garden. I hope that you are all fine and well. I have had a day of relaxation today before my thoughts turn back to school work for the rest of the week. I am planning to get into school to arrange the tables for the phased return in the future and to plan for next weeks work. Keep safe and well.

Week 9 photos: Look at the camera and smile.

Day 62 and Day 63

I hope that you are all still well. Saturday was very windy, not a good day for walking or going outside much. Yesterday was better in the afternoon so I spent time in my garden with my family. The work for next week will keep your minds ticking over. Keep your photos coming in. Stay safe.

Day 61

I hope that you are all still OK and that all of your family and friends are too. Well what a change in the weather. Over night there was rain and some very bluster conditions. The wind is set to continue into the weekend but with fewer showers. Keep safe.

Day 60

Another lovely day today. I have put together some activities for next week and continued to look for new and inventive activities to use when we return. I hope that you are still all OK and are looking after each other. Keep safe.

Day 59

I have been up bright and early today, like most days, to get my work completed before the sun is up and shining. What a glorious day it promises to be. If you can, get into the garden to do some of your work, I have, but make sure you have plenty of sun cream on. There is still some uncertainty on when schools will return, please keep looking to the school website for details of this. Remember to keep in touch with family and friends but most of all keep safe.

Day 58

Well today has been what they call a muggy day, warm and sticky but at least there was no rain, despite the threat of some. I have been busy developing ideas and activities for next week, I know it should be half term so I am not thinking of doing too much, just enough to keep you ticking over. Luca has designed a mask to represent Oberon. Remember to send in any photos of your work or other activities that you have been doing as I love to see what you have been up to. I've made naan bread to go with my tea today. Keep safe.

Day 57

I hope that you have all enjoyed the weekend to the best that you could have. The work this week is again available below and I hope that it provides you with a range of activities that will be both enjoyable and challenging. Remember that if you have any queries then please get in contact via email. The weather today has been warm without seeing much sunshine. I am still looking at different ways to engage you in the work for each week that you are away from school. I know some of you will be losing some momentum, my advice would be to take your time, break activities down into small chunks and have time out if you need it. A little is better than none. Try and keep to some kind of routine. Keep safe. 

Week 8 photos: Say sausages

Day 55 and Day 56

A lovely day on Saturday. I spent some time on my allotment and went for a walk. Sunday was similar weather wise, time was spent cutting the grass and relaxing in the garden. I hope that you are all feeling well and that all of your family members are too. Keep safe, behave and be sensible.

Day 54

I hope that you are all well and good. Today has been a nice day for the weather, bright and sunny, just as we like it. I have had a meeting with other staff to discuss plans for our return, whenever that might be. I have also been doing some training to gather new ideas for the classroom. This afternoon was spent in the garden with my family talking about recent events in the news as well as the prospect of when we will get to see members of our own family as I am sure you are wanting to also. have a great weekend and keep safe. 

Day 53

A bright start to the day today. Spent some time loading up some work activities for next week and finding ideas on how to make writing activities more exciting for when we return. Some lovely warm sunshine this afternoon. I hope that you are all keeping safe and that the people close to you are well as well.

Day 52

Today was a day in school looking after children of key workers. The weather was pretty good so there was lots of time spent outside. A few photos have been added to our gallery. I hope that you and all of your family are keeping well. Remember to be sensible and keep safe.

Day 51

A day spent looking at how to improve lessons on our return, whenever that might be. Some ideas were very good, some not so. Reports are well on the way too. I hope that the activities are interesting for you. Keep the facts and photos coming in. The weather at least has been dry today with less wind. I believe that the warmer temperatures are due to come back later in the week. Keep safe.

Day 50

A walk to the allotment this morning hoping that my poly tunnel survived the wind. Fortunately it has. The plants that were planted last week have settled in nicely and are establishing themselves. My chickens are laying enough eggs to help with the baking my children have been doing. I hope that the work for this week gives a variety of opportunities for you to use your imagination. Remember that should you need any help or to share your work or things you have done at home then I can be contacted via email.

Week 7 photos. Chin up and look at the camera.

Day 48 and Day 49

Saturday was another day of relaxing in the garden taking in as much sunshine as possible. What a difference a day makes. Sunday was very different. Cold and wind. The work is finalised and is available to access on Monday. I hope you all had a good weekend with you family. Keep safe.

Day 47

Well today was VE day. A time to reflect on the sacrifices made by people long ago in the fight for freedom and fairness. I have spent the day in my garden with my family today and am looking forward to a pleasant weekend. I hope you are all well.

Day 46

A bright sunny day today, plenty of time to get into the garden. I have uploaded the work for next week but as usual there might be changes to it. I hope that you have managed the tasks and activities for this week. Keep safe.

Day 45

My day has been spent in school looking after the  children of our key workers. The weather has allowed the chance for lots of outside play which was taken up by all. I hope that you are all trying to complete some of the activities that were set for this week. Remember to take your time with them. Keep safe.

Day 44

I hope you are all feeling well and behaving yourselves. What a strange day weather wise. It looked lovely and sunny but that wind was freezing when I was on my walk today. I have also added the digestive questions in a clearer format hopefully.

Day 43

A cloudy day today with some bursts of sunshine. I hope you have all had a lovely weekend. If you get the chance to go for a walk see if you notice any changes in the flowers, trees and bird song that you can hear from previous weeks. Keep safe.

Week 6 Photos: At the photo shop.

Day 41 and Day 42

Saturday was spent tidying up around the house, a walk to drop some essentials off at my mum and dads and a visit to my allotment to plant out some of my seedlings. The weather was great. I also checked on the blackbird chicks, they are huge now. See them in the photo section. Sunday was family time in the garden. Cutting grass and relaxing, talking about when we think the lock down might be over and when we could return to normal. We all agreed that we miss all of our family and friends as I am sure you all do also. I look forward to hearing from you later in the week and maybe see some of your work in photographs. Remember to be sensible and to keep safe.

Day 40

A bit of a mixed day of activities today. Some school work early on, starting a chilli for tea in the slow cooker, a walk with the family and then a bit more work and updating of the web page. The work is finalised for next week. Please don't start it yet, have a great weekend and remember to be sensible and keep safe.

Day 39

A day of planning work, loading it up onto the website and replying to emails. I hope that you enjoy the activities. Some photos have been sent in today and have also been added to the gallery. I hope that you are all still behaving your selves and being patient with each other. I know it can be hard at times. Keep safe.

Day 38

I day spent in school today looking after pupils of key workers. I know the weather hasn't been great but at least dry for the most part. I will begin putting work on for next week tomorrow, please don't be tempted to look at it just yet. There doesn't appear to be many problems with the work that has been set. Can I please remind you that I although I set the work, I am aware that each family will be contending with different situations daily, as I am, and so complete what work you can. If you are struggling to print anything try your best to copy what bits you can but I do try to think about this when setting it. Keep safe and well.

Day 37

Fact of the day by Kajus

your heart beats about 100,000 times a day

Depending on your beats per minute, your heart beats about 100,000 times a day. That means it sends 2,000 gallons of blood through the body.

 

I have been very careful not to disturb my blackbird nest so when the mum has been looking for food I have taken a quick snap. And WOW the eggs have hatched, and the chicks have grown so quickly. See them in the photo shop. The weather today has again been reasonably kind, cold but dry. I have taken the time to complete more of your reports and think about next weeks work. We will be starting our work on Shakespeare. This is usually done with a lot of fun in mind and lots of role play but because of our unusual circumstances planned activities might have to change. Dorian sent me a video of him carrying out the conductors and insulators work. It was great to see but unfortunately I have not been able to upload it onto the web page. He did however say that he misses us all and can't wait to see us all soon. I have also been looking at after school sports clubs for next year if we don't resume this year. If you have any suggestions for clubs then please message me and I will see if we can accommodate it. Our reciprocal reading will be changing to The Firework-Maker's Daughter by Philip Pullman in a week or so. Keep safe and well.

Day 36

I hope that you are all safe and well after the weekend. The weather has eventually turned out ok today despite the cloudy and cold start. That gave me the opportunity to finish some reports and complete some other documents  before going on a walk through my local woods with one of my sons. WOW! What a difference a week makes. Lots of new bird calls and flowers that are now in bloom. The sea of bluebells was fantastic. Do try and get out and about if the weather is fine if you can as I am sure that the rainy days will give you the chance to complete any work. Just to clarify, the Shakespeare is just to read as work will be set around this over the next few weeks. Keep safe.

 

Day 34 and Day 35

I hope that you are all still in good health after the weekend. What a lovely day Saturday was. Lots of sunshine and time in the garden. I have uploaded the work for this coming week and as usual, should you have any queries please get in touch. Yesterday was probably the worst day of the time out of school so far with cooler temperatures and rain showers. I believe that is the forecast for much of next week so remember to be considerate to others in your home and try to behave. 

Day 33

A morning catching  up with reports and loading up work for next week. The  afternoon was spent in the garden for valuable family time. I hope that you are all well. Have a lovely weekend and keep safe.

Day 32

We have some eagle eyed people out there. Some may have noticed on the Reciprocal Reading that I have asked you to summarise Pg150-153... it should be only Pg150-151. My apologies for that. Once again the weather has been good with lots of sunshine. I have been planning next weeks work and continuing with your reports. Keep messaging me if you have any queries and remember to browse the photos as additions are constantly appearing. Also, happy birthday Patrick from  us all.

Keep safe.

Day 31

A gloriously sunny day today. I have been in school today looking after our key worker children. I hope that you are all behaving at home and trying to complete some of the work that has been set. Keep sending in the photos as it is great to see what you have been up to. Stay safe.

Day 30

Another bright and windy day today. I hope that you are all coping with the work that has been set. Remember that if you have any problems then contact me via email. The Shakespeare text is to read as we will be working on this in a couple of weeks. Remember to keep safe.

Day 29

I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. I have had a few photos today and an amazing fact. I will post some photos later with some of my allotment photos just to see how the seeds are coming on. Another day of sun and wind. I hope that you are finding the activities OK. Remember that I am here to help if needed.

 

Fact of the day by Luca

Sloths can hold their breath for up to 40 minutes which is 4 times longer than a dolphin!

Week 4 photo call: Say cheese!

Day 27 and Day 28

Saturday was probably the worst day for weather, cold, blustery and rain showers. Good for the garden, but not so for us. Yesterday however was back to normal, lots of sunshine and quite hot if you managed to get out of the wind. I spent most of the day watching birds collect materials for their nests. I was amazed at how much they can carry in their beaks! The forecast looks promising again this week so make the most of it. Plenty of fresh air, walks if you can but most of all, keep yourself and family members safe and well.  

Day 26

Well that's another week gone. The work is finalised for next week so feel free to have a look. We will be focusing on Shakespeare with A Midsummer Nights Dream and Romeo and Juliet the plays we will be working on in a week or so. I have attached a copy for you to read. Remember to keep safe and be sensible.

Day 25

I hope you are all still feeling good and that all of your families are too. I can't believe that we have had another scorcher of a day sunshine wise. Plenty of time in the garden. I have loaded the work for next week, although there might be some tweaks, so don't be tempted to start too soon. The forecast is good for tomorrow with an indifferent day on Saturday but then the forecast looks good again. Remember to keep the photos coming in along with your fact of the day. Keep safe and well.

Day 24

All seems quiet and relaxed at the moment. Once again the weather has been kind. I've been working on reports and planning activities for next week today and I have also been on a lovely walk around my village and surrounding areas. I hope that you are all safe. Remember to behave because I have too!

Day 23

It was a cold start today despite the sun being out. Lots of cloud watching on my walk. Got to see a dog, a mountain range, different faces and even a star destroyer from Star Wars! I have added some pictures of my seeds that have started to grow to the photo shoot. They are not as big as Dorian's yet. Keep safe.

Day 22

A mixed day weather wise, so we went for a long walk in our local wood. Very quite, but lovely to hear all of the birds singing. I hope that you are all still in good health. Keep the photos and key facts coming in so I can post them and keep you in touch with everyone in class. I am sure you are missing each other. I know I am. 

Week 4: 13.4.20 Reflection and Relaxation opportunities.

Week 3 photos. Strike a pose!

Day 20 and 21

Day 20 was a U2 moment, a beautiful day with sun, sun and more sun. Lots of time spent in the garden with family just watching the world go by. Day 21 started well, time on my allotment, by golly the seeds have really started to germinated and the onions have all got shoots, but the day drifted into clouds and spots of rain. I spent my afternoon in and out dodging those spots. I hope that you are all still safe and well and that you are still behaving yourselves. Wishing you all well.

Day 19

A great day of sunshine today. I hope that you are all still safe and well. The activities for next week are based around reflection and relaxation. If you feel the need to complete any tasks previously set then you can do. I have included the Summer Home Learning sheet that would have accompanied the Summer Term work. I will keep you updated on other things after the weekend.

Day 18

Well, it has been a cloudy day today, but there has still been some lovely pockets of sunshine to enjoy. I hope that you are still managing to complete the work set. Remember, that if you need help then contact me. If you want additional work that supports or challenges then go to top marks maths, maths frame and BBC Bitesize. There has been some additional photos added so make sure you have a look at them.  I will add some ideas for the holidays tomorrow. Keep safe, do your best and behave.

 

Fact of the day by Luca:

Bees can fly higher than Mount Everest!

 

Day 17

What a beautiful day... check out David Boone 'It's A Beautiful Sunday' on You Tube and 'change the day'. The weather has been great. I hope that you are all feeling good and so are the people closest to you. No emails, photos or interesting facts so I presume that everything is ok. Keep in touch. 

Day 16

What a beautiful day today. I have been in the garden starting to write ideas down for your reports. There are no new photos or new facts to add  to our gallery either so keep safe and behave as I know you will be doing.

Day 15

I hope that you are all still well. The third week has begun with pleasant weather once again, giving you opportunities to get outside. The work is loaded and ready for you to access. Remember to ask any questions if you are unsure and send me photos and interesting facts so that we can share them with others.

Days 13 and 14

Spent a little time on my allotment rotovating and planting potatoes, onions and various seeds. Just hoping that they germinate and grow successfully. I cleaned my chickens and even found a blackbirds nest in my shed and it contained eggs! Will be leaving them so as not to disturb the mum and hopefully they will hatch. Yesterday was family day in the garden, talking, relaxing doing odd jobs and having a bbq. I hope that you also made the most of the great weather. 

Day 12

A steady day today. I received photos of your work which I have loaded onto our page. It is great to see that you are working hard. Work for next week is finalised and I have decided that I will not be setting anything for the following week, the week we should be on holiday. I will however keep the daily updates.  If anyone has a new fact then email them to me and I will try to include the most intriguing on each daily update. I hope that you are keeping safe, being sensible and behaving. Have a nice weekend.

Day 11

It has been nice to receive some photos of your work today. I have been busy loading your work tasks for next week and replying to emails. Once again, a dry day but cold, wishing for more heat like last week. Fingers crossed. Keep safe.

Day 10

A quieter day today, as I was in school with key worker pupils. Time to reflect on how empty the school is without our pupils. I do hope you are all being sensible. The work for next week will begin to be uploaded from tomorrow so please don't be tempted to start it you have enough to do for the rest of this week. Parents, if you have any pictures of your child's work that you wish to be put onto the web page then please feel free to email them to me and I will try to include them on our page. 

Day 9

I hope your are all still safe and feeling good. If you are unable to down load or print any of the work then copy what you can into your books. For comprehensions write the answers, Reciprocal Reading do as we do in class, RE can be answered in your books and you can write your Amazon journey into your book. The maths booklet is pages 1-7 only and again write any workings into your book with your answers. I do try to use activities that can be done without down printing excessive amounts. Today has again been unsettled weather wise with low temperatures and clouds threatening rain. Remember to help with little jobs in the house and to behave. I have too!

Day 8

A day of unsettled weather so fewer chances to get out into the garden today. I hope you are all feeling good and are trying to get through the tasks that I have set. Remember, don't over do the study, short bursts spread out over the week. Be sensible, keep safe and behave.

Here is a maths link to follow should you wish to. Some of the work over the next few weeks will cover this.

Days 6 and 7

Well the weekend has been an gone. Again the weather way dry but the temperatures dropped and the wind was freezing. BRRR. Looks like a good forecast for the coming week. Dry at least. Work has been set to complete over the week. Please don't try to do it all at once, space it out. Be sensible and keep safe.

Day 5

Another good day on the weather front. The forecast over the next few days is colder but dry. Have a great weekend and be patient with everyone.

Day 4

We are being spoilt so far with the weather so keep making the most of it. I have heard that it is to get colder and possibly rain at the weekend. Keep checking for additions to the work. The maths task for next week is to complete pg 1-7. Keep safe and be responsible. 

Day 3

Been into school today. The sun has been shining again! I am thinking of loading next weeks work up asap due to the problems of loading things up. DO NOT ACCESS IT BEFORE NEXT WEEK PLEASE AS SOME THINGS MAY CHANGE.

Day 2

Well, it's sunny again. Make the most of it as the weather cannot be guaranteed to last! Get in the garden and exercise. I have been trying to load this message since 8 o'clock this morning so please be aware that if work is not loaded in time or messages posted then I am doing my best to keep you updated.

Day 1

Following a lovely weekend of sunny weather it is still fine today although there was a keen frost this morning. I hope that you are all in good spirits. Be sensible and keep safe.
