Dear Year 4 and parents,

The daily work and tasks will now be posted on our new platform Showbie and will no longer be updated via to website. If you have not signed up to Showbie already, please do so ASAP. Please see the letter below with instructions on how to get started. Showbie allows for a greater form of communication in which pupils will be able to access their daily work and ask any question with their peers and myself. The class discussion page will be accessible from 13:00-13:30 daily. During this time, pupils will be able to have discussions with myself and other members of class four. I am looking forward to seeing you on there.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

 

Mr Rhodes.

 

Good Morning Class four! 

 

I hope everybody is going to have a wonderful Wednesday! I have to admit I am running out of these alliterations for the days of the week. Perhaps you could come up with one for tomorrow. 

 

Please remember to sign up to Showbie, our new platform. Future work will be posted onto Showbie soon, where we can better communicate with you all! For instructions on how to get started please see the attached letter below. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and hard work.

Home project activities:

Next term, we will be diving into the USA. Therefore a menu of ideas is attached below for you to find out a little more about America, so that we will be prepared for our road trip. 

 

Books to read: 

The BFG

The Twits

 

Other fun project ideas include:

  • Design a Viking ship, think about what the ship is going to be used for. Fishing? Transporting? Exploration? The purpose of this ship should affect the size and design. This can be done on paper, but some of you may wish to create out of card, wood, etc... 
  • Create and design a survey to find out how much screen time from electronic devices people in your house are averaging per day. Present the data in a bar chart. 
  • Something yummy next... create a recipe with Greek yoghurt (if ingredients are available). I was just experimenting with fresh garlic, mint, cucumber and paprika. Fruits and oats also goes well with this. Write down your recipes! 
  • Draw / create a collage of a famous London landmark. 
  • Create your own board game with resources and rule sheet. This board game doesn't need to relate to a topic within school, it can be about a general interest of yours. On that note, I am just finishing off my board game, 'Race to the Flag', a Formula 1 trivia game of which the whole family can enjoy. I'm sure some shops may pick up a few copies of mine. 
  • Sketching the view from your window. 

 

Have a lovely break, thinking of you all.
