Otter Class Y4

Welcome to

Otter Class!

 

Dear Year 4

 

You have almost made it to the Easter holidays. Miss Chalcroft and I are so proud of you all for working so hard over the past two weeks. It has been strange to be away from school, and we have missed you all, but we know you are all super stars and nothing will stop you doing your best.

 

You will find Friday's daily activities below. We will not be posting daily activities over the two week break as we know everyone needs a little time off school work, but we know you are still stuck at home and may be looking for something to keep you busy. We hope you will look at the home learning resources page on the school website and have a go at completing the project we have set for you. The great thing about this project is that it is all about something you love, whatever that is! It might be about a game you love to play or about an instrument you are learning. It could be about a special memory, sport or hobby, or even about your favourite food!

 

If you can, do have a go at the Easter egg hunt on the home learning resources page. We hope you will make use of it over the Easter holidays, sharing some fun and giggles with your family.

 

We have left the family project details in the project folder on our class page. You will still have access to spelling and maths shed as well as Purple Mash, but no 2dos will be set.

 

Have a very Happy Easter and fingers crossed we can all enjoy some more of this gorgeous sunshine!

 

Stay safe and keep on smiling!

Mrs Lawrie

This week we will focus on activities based on looking after ourselves and others.

Today it’s time to have some family fun!

Look in the Home Learning Folder and find the instructions for the Easter Egg Hunt.

You can try both the KS1 and KS2 hunts – they are both a lot of fun!

Even better, if you have a younger brother or sister, you could help read each clue so they can have fun too!

 

A number of children have asked whether they can do quizzes on their Accelerated Reader books at home.

The good news is that, while the school is temporarily closed, this is now possible.

Copy and paste the following link to take a quiz: https://ukhosted53.renlearn.co.uk/1894260 

Then, ask your parents to save it onto your desktop so that it's easy to find next time.

Look at this - more Multplication Magicians! These maths wizards know all their times table facts and are inspiring the rest of the class to learn them too!

We had a lovely World Book Day afternoon sharing books with our buddy class...

What a fantastic trip to We the Curious! We had so much fun watching, learning, testing, trying, measuring, making and exploring...

In PE this term we have been learn how to express ideas through dance. These photos show us being storms, tornados and other dramatic weather systems.

Day two of our child led teaching and we learnt about the planets and dinosaurs, made willow bands, created stop motion animation, learnt how to throw and kick rugby balls accurately and shot hoops in basketball. Well done teachers!

We have been learning all about solids, liquids and gases this week, investigating how heat and cold can change the state of matter and had great fun handling Ooblek and watching it change from solid to liquid

Today, the children of Otter Class took over the job of teaching and did a fabulous job of it. Lots of fun, creativity and great learning took place. Well done to all our new teachers!

We took part in a skipping workshop and learnt how to skip forwards and backwards. We got pretty good at it!

We finished our Hinduism topic with a day of fun activities including creating a class Rangoli pattern and designing henna hand patterns and Diwali posters

The early Anglo Saxons used a Runic alphabet. We had a go at making pendants using this alphabet to inscribe our initials.

For National Poetry Day, we had a poetry slam and really enjoyed performing in front of the rest of the class.

We have been learning about Ango-Saxon lifestyles and decided to have a go at making our own models of a typical Anglo-Saxon hillfort and houses. We realised that it wouldn’t have been easy for them to build structures strong enough to withstand enemy attacks and bad weather!

We are learning the legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. We had a go at re-enacting the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.
