We are very much looking forward to welcoming the children back to class tomorrow.
A reminder that pupils must not return if they are self-isolating due to there being a confirmed COVID-19 case in the family, or if a member of the family has symptoms and is waiting for test results or the pupil has symptoms themselves.
As part of our approach to managing risk, we are required to have adequate ventilation in classrooms at all times This means that we need to have some windows open, whatever the weather. As a result, as we move into winter, it may be a little ‘fresher’ than we are used to in class at times. Children may want to wear an extra t-shirt under their school shirt and they are encouraged to bring in a warm fleece/hoodie/sweater to wear in class. This can be any colour or style as long as it is warm!
Please can you also make sure your child brings their ‘Remote Learning’ work back to school.
We can’t wait to see them all and thank you for your support and patience.

RE: Festivals and Celebrations.
In your book, write down or draw a picture of all the festivals, special days and celebrations that you know about. For example, Birthdays, Weddings, Diwali, Remembrance Day etc. How many do you know about? If you have any old photos of these events you might like to stick them in your book.
Art: Prehistoric Art
In Prehistoric times, people put paintings or carvings on places that were important to them. Deep inside caves, archeologists have found paintings of animals that were alive at the time such as mammoths, horses and ibex. They have been painted as though they are moving along in a long procession. Choose 6 of your favourite animals that are alive today. In your book, design a painting to put inside a cave showing them all running along. Which one will lead the procession?
Learning for today……..
Please could you test your child on their spellings and e-mail results. The new spellings are up on the spellings page so I would like your child to write them out correctly in their spelling book and learn them ready for next week.
Yesterday you planned what you would tell Ahmet about yourself if you met him. Today, I would like you to write a paragraph all about yourself, making sure you include lots of interesting facts, Remember that you should be extending your sentences using conjunctions and also including adjectives to bring your writing to life!
PUPILS WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS
Activity 1- Difference questions
Activity 2- Practise 2 digit subtraction (1)
YEAR 4 (Complete 2 activities)
Here’s a Friday afternoon challenge! I know you are all great dancers ( way better than the staff!) so I would like you to learn the dance below ready to show us your moves next week….. you could even get your parents involved!!
Have a great weekend and we’re super proud of all your efforts. We can’t wait to see you next week!
Activities for today-
ACTIVITY 1- Investigating plurals
ACTIVITY 2- Responses to questions
Yesterday, we revised how to use question marks and you wrote down the questions you would ask Ahmet. Now it’s time to think about what his responses might be. We don’t know very much about what life is like in Syria so you can either research what would be sensible responses or use your imagination and record your answers in your book. Please make sure you write in full sentences in your NEATEST handwriting.
Once you have done that, it’s time to think about what information you would share about yourself if you were to meet Ahmet. Here are some things you might think about. You can use the ideas below to help you plan and just make bullet points ( we will be writing in sentences tomorrow).
PUPILS WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS
Activity 1-Addition & Subtraction 2
Activity 2- Subtracting 2 digit numbers
YEAR 4 ( Complete the 2 activities)
We are going to be learning about what life was like in the stone age. Watch the video below and make notes in your ‘Home Learning’ book about any interesting facts you find out. It is worth watching it through once and then a second time but pausing so you have time to make notes. I will be asking you to share your facts next week when we are back at school.
Hope you are all feeling well and ready for another day of home learning ( not long to go now!).

We have been reading a story called ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’- a story all about a refugee child called Ahmet who arrives in England. I would like the children to watch this video showing the questions asked to refugee children.
In their book, I would like the children to record the questions they would ask Ahmet( it is ok if they use some of the questions shown in the video). Make sure your child remembers to use a question mark at the end of each sentence.

SCIENCE with Dr Roberts
Last week, we reminded ourselves how sounds are made and detected; we also learned about the parts of our ear and how they help us to hear sounds.
Today, we are going to learn about the difference between pitch and volume then learn about the different sounds made by musical instruments (with the option of making your own musical instrument, if you would like to).
To learn about pitch and volume, click on the link to BBC Bitesize below, then complete the sections listed:
- What is pitch?
- Watch the video carefully;
- Complete the ‘Fill in the gaps’ activity (the words to choose from are shown to help you);
- Have a go at the ‘Quiz’.
- What is the volume of a sound?
- Watch the video carefully and read the information.
All sounds are made by making vibrations that travel through the air to our ears. Musical instruments make different sounds and are played in different ways to make these sounds.
Use the link below to take you to an Oak National Academy lesson about how different sounds are produced.
You will need your exercise book and a pencil.
If you would like to make a musical instrument (this is optional and is explained in the video), you will need the following materials: box, scissors, cardboard tube, sellotape, 2-4 elastic bands (or hair bobbles), 4 lolly sticks (or long matches) plus a grown up to help you.
You need to complete the Intro Quiz, then watch the video (which provides lots of brilliant facts and tells you how to make a musical instrument), then complete the Exit Quiz.
