Good morning year 3 and 4!

We hope you are well, safe and are relaxing at home with a warm hot chocolate on this chilly morning.

We will try to be in touch with everyone today to check in.  There will be learning posted on the Splash page by tomorrow morning for you all to access.  We will also be exploring the use of Google Classroom over the next couple of weeks, with the hope to use this more.

Speak to you all soon!

Take care of yourselves and your families.

Suggested Summer Activities

Hi all,

With summer fast approaching, we are nearing the end to what has been a very different year in school. We have all learned how to learn in different ways and we have all learned lots of new skills. So, for being so resilient, brave and brilliant, you should be ever so proud of what you have all done over the past number of weeks. Remember, you are great learners and have so much new life experience to share as a result of the past couple of months we have not been in school. I can’t wait to hear all about it when we return to school.

In the meantime, here are some suggestions for learning to keep in touch with learning over the summer holidays. If you could keep in touch with times tables, spelling (high frequency spelling list and year 3 and 4 spelling list) and handwriting it would be beneficial. Remember we have signed you up to Prodigy Maths which is a great resource to keep maths skills on the boil. All pupil’s have login details which were sent home in the learning packs children received in when they came into school. If you need a password, please get in touch before Wednesday and I can get it to you.

Free Fun Online Timestables Resource

Hi all,

I was doing a little research into times tables resources online and I came across this one. It’s called ‘Maths Chase’ and looks to be a fun way to learn and to test out our times tables knowledge.

In year 3 and year 4 there is a big focus on getting to grips with times tables, not just knowing them but to be able to recall them quickly. To support this over the summer months would be of enormous benefit  as we have discussed in class when introducing you to Prodigy Maths.

The link to the ‘Maths Chase’ website is below. It is free and does not require any sign up or login details. Have a look and see what you think. It looks to be a fun interactive tool to support your times tables learning.

I hope you are all safe and well.

Best wishes,

Mr Whitty

Create your own ‘Mash Up Pet’

Hi all,

During your week in school we invented and discussed our ‘Mash Up Pet’. Today using the mash-up you created, we would like you to design a 3-Dimensional (3D) version of your mash up pet using anything you can find. You may need to ask an adult to use recycling, stuff from the shed or even things from your garden. You can use anything you like including string, tape, glue to hold it together. If you have not already created a mash up pet, you can do so by copying and pasting the following link into an web browser or address bar at the top of your internet page.

10 Minute Challenges

Don’t forget to post pictures of your creation via the upload page on the school website! We would love to see what you have created.

Have fun and get creating….

 

Take care and stay safe

Hi Everybody,

What a week we had last week with Year 3 and 4 Base 1! We had learning, fun, smiles, laughter, friendship making, creative thinking and so much more. Now it’s your turn!

This week while in school, I will be giving children learning packs to take home and introducing them to a new online maths resource that will be tailored to each child’s need.

We can’t wait to welcome Mrs Cousins’ class up into the Year 5 classroom for their day in school. We have so much to chat about. Mrs Louise and I can’t wait!

In the meantime, stay safe and take care!

Week Beginning 29th June 2020 – Out of this World – Our Splendid Space

Week beginning 29th June 2020 – Out of this World – Our Splendid Space

This week we welcome back children from Year 3 and 4 Base 1 into school and next week we will welcome back Year 3 and 4 Base 2. We are very excited to welcome you all back into school albeit into the Year 5 classroom. If you remember, you all have had lessons in the Year 5 classroom before during Monday’s carousel of learning. I am sat writing this on my sofa with the biggest smile on face in anticipation of seeing all you marvellous learners again.

In the knowledge that you will be in school sometime over the next few weeks, we will be revisiting some learning in preparation for coming into school alongside some space themed activities.

SPACE ACTIVITIES

The space themed learning pack will hopefully provide you with a range of activities to try out and to have some fun with. With the pack, scroll down through it to have a good look at all of the different activities. Please feel free to try the ones that you like the look of while not worrying about completing the ones you do not like the look of.

VOCABULARY LEARNING

It would be really beneficial if you could have a go at or revisit again the vocabulary learning about the animal ‘mash up’.

Revisit English Vocabulary Learning:

Top Tip: Try to complete one part each day over three days. This will allow time to explore some of the space themed activities as well.

Part 1:

Watch the 10 minute challenge on Authorfy (https://authorfy.com/10minutechallenges/ ), set by Sibeal Pounder (Author of Bad Mermaids and Witch Wars). In this challenge, Sibeal asks you to create your own animal mash-up and gives tips and advice on how you might do this.

Part 2:

Using your animal mash-up (or one you found and really liked online!) create a mind map of interesting words you could use to describe your mash-up pet.

Part 3:

Can you turn the descriptive words into sentences about your mash-up pet?

My examples are:

The squox peered out of his burrow, his pointed ears alert to any sounds.

Life was challenging for the squox, for she was regularly toppling over from the weight of her expansive head.
