Good morning 4A,
I hope you've all had a fab weekend. I spent mine facetiming family and friends, watching films and cooking. My friend left a box of chocolates on my doorstep - a lovely surprise to wake up to. Perhaps this is something you can do for your loved ones too. As you all know, I was supposed to be going to Bali during the Easter break. Although a travel ban has been imposed, our airline still hasn't cancelled our flights. I spent most of my Sunday on the phone to them trying to sort everything out! I'll let you know the outcome!
Thank you to those who took part in the TTR Battle of the Bands. Two boys from our class (you know who you are!) came in the top four, which is fantastic. I know Mr R-H will be giving them a prize but I will also give them a prize from me. Super proud. This week will be teachers vs kids. We have lots of talented mathematicians in our class, so please make sure you have a go!
I am missing you all a lot and have been talking to the other 3/4 phase teachers about how we can communicate with you. Watch this space.
Have a great day.
Lots of love,
Maths: https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ Please complete
Lesson 1 - Step 6 - Divide 2-digits by 10. You guys know the drill by now :)
Reading: I would like you to log onto classroom secrets and complete this reading comprehension - Year 4 - Fiction reading Comprehension - Asked my Dad Again.
Keep reading your accelerated reader book too!.
SPaG: Keep practicing those spellings please!
As we know, we are currently experiencing very strange times and this will become the history of the future. Therefore, I would like you to create a record of these times which could be used as evidence by children in years to come. Please see the attached documents which explain what I would like you to produce.
https://www.youtube.com/thebodycoachtv Don't forget to do your daily exercise. I didn't do any over the weekend so I will be making sure I am back on it from tomorrow!
Science: I saw that 6RH had a bit of a different task for Science and I thought it would be good for our class too.
I'd like you to do the research about a famous Scientist of your choice. You should create a presentation on them - this can be written, or using technology - powerpoint etc. You should include:
Information about who they are, Date of Birth etc.
The reasons they are famous, and the impact they have had.
Other fun and interesting information.
I know how much you all like doing powerpoints, so have fun with it.
