Dear Parents/Guardians and Children,
It was so lovely to see those of you who were able to join the Zoom chat this morning. I’ve had lots of emails to tell me you enjoyed it too and I’ve sent Mrs Driver your video messages which she loved seeing.
I hope seeing each other has spurred you on to get through these last few weeks so you can spend more time together. Talking with each other helps you know that you’re not alone, we’re all finding things difficult, especially learning at home. Sharing this has hopefully made you all feel a bit brighter and ready to tackle this week’s work.
Maths: I have taken on board what you’ve said about the maths and so I’ll be giving you a few options from now on. This week’s work on graphs might be challenging, but it’s always good to have a go. If you feel that’s too tricky, I have looked at things we have already done that you all could do with practising: negative numbers, counting in fractions, adding/subtracting fractions and 3D shapes. There are five worksheets which you can do in any order and I will set the My Maths to match these activities.
Whiterose Summer Term-Week 10 w/c 29th June
Here are some alternative sheets for this week:
Of course, if you prefer and I found some more maths mystery booklets for those of you who enjoy them. These have five clues each so you can do one a day and they cover all areas of maths so some may be harder for you than others.
English: If you have collected your copy of Christophe’s Story from school, then you’re ready to do the tasks in the document below.
If you are choosing to do your own writing this week, it would be lovely to see it if you’d like to share it with me.
You should still have some SpaG tasks from a few weeks ago but I thought I’d add a SpaG mystery booklets too.
PE: Wimbledon should have been starting Monday 29th June so here are some tennis challenges for you. You might want to make some easier and maybe adapt them if you don’t have a tennis racket and balls-one uses a frying pan! I have also uploaded some Wimbledon themed resources, they may inspire you to do a Wimbledon project!
There’s also the Roger Federer challenge-please check with your parents what walls you can use!
Art: Children’s Art Week also starts on Monday (it’s actually three weeks?!) and the first theme is nature so here are some tasks you might want to try for that, as well as some craft activities that are linked to music and PSHE.
Science: I found these science activity sheets if you’d like to have a go. Some may need to be adapted to doing at home/in a nature area rather than the school field.
Art/Science: Monday would have been school photos, so I’ve found some photo tasks for you. Photography combines both science and art. You need artistic skills to compose a good photograph but knowing about colour, light and mirrors helps too.
Computing: Follow Home Activity pack 3 https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Support-tools/home-activity-worksheets/8-10s/
There is always BBC Bitesize https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z63tt39/year-4-and-p5-lessons as well as https://www.twinkl.co.uk/home-learning-hub/2020-06-29
All these tasks are optional, you don’t have to do them if you’d prefer to do something else but most subjects above should last a week each. Any writing or calculating you do within activities can count as your English (writing a shopping list, writing emails and letters, keeping a journal) and Maths (measuring ingredients, telling the time, building 3D shapes with Lego) for that day. Just do what you can, when you can and keep smiling! Remember that all of your friends feel the same right now, but if you dig deep, I’m sure you’ll make each other proud! School rule number two: Effort!
As always, I’m on email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Twitter (@Beech_WR) if you need help with anything. If for any reason you cannot find/download any of the documents attached, then please email me so I can get them to you that way instead.
Stay home, stay safe,
