Welcome to your last week in Year 4 and our final week of home learning before the summer holidays.
You will be receiving your reports in the post from us and we are really proud of everything you have achieved this year. You have shown resilience and determination during a very strange time and worked so hard. Parents and carers, if you have any questions regarding your child’s report, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and this will be forwarded to the class teacher so they can contact you.
In our final Google Meet, you will get an opportunity to say goodbye to your current teacher and meet your new teacher. It is really important that you log in for this final meeting so that you and your new teacher can meet one another. To accommodate this, we have has to alter the dates and times of some meets to allow both teachers to be present. You can find the day and nickname of your Class Meet here
As we will not have time to complete our reading of “Arthur and the Golden Rope“, we have added a narrated PowerPoint of the whole book to the extra activities section. You can watch this when you have completed all your tasks this week so that you know how the story ends.
Here are some wonderful examples of home learning we have received over the last week.
Nasar has produced some wonderful writing.
Samuel produced a great advert to encourage people to visit Iceland.
Nkeiru produced a super poem for BLM.
Nicole produced some fantastic poster work for BLM.
Evie has been getting lots of exercise and walking her dog.
Kenzo produced this super story board of “Arthur and the Golden Rope”
Josiah has been busy researching facts about the planets that make up our solar sysytem.
Thank you to everyone who has emailed work in. We have really enjoyed seeing your wonderful work!
‘Big Camp’ Challenge!
This is the last whole Trust challenge before we ‘break up’ for the summer holiday so we thought we would make it super fun and go out with a bang!
Your challenge this week is to build a camp! Your camp or den can be indoors or outdoors and made out of whatever you like. You might choose to build a den in your bedroom from blankets, duvets and sheets or you could make one under your dining table. You could make a den out of branches if you have a woodland nearby or you could pitch a tent in your back garden. Apparently, a den is only a den if you can sit in it so make sure you can squeeze in. If you haven’t got enough space to build a human-sized den, how about making a den for a teddy or doll? You could even make a tiny den for a Lego man or small world figure.
You will find a task sheet to help you with ideas in the downloads for extra activities.
Here is this week’s timetable. Have a fabulous last week of home learning. We wish you and your families a wonderful summer and look forward to seeing you all in September.
