Week 1 home learning
Hello Year 4!
I hope you all have had a lovely Easter and enjoyed eating some chocolate! Not too much, I hope! Did you have a go at any of the Easter activities? I thought the Egg decorating ideas were really inspiring! I also had a visit from wild animal!
It has felt very strange to not be in school and see your cheerful faces every day. I bet it has been just as strange for you being at home all the time! However, I have been trying to use my time wisely to complete some projects. I have painted some furniture, continuing a sewing project and dabbled in some baking.
I have also loved spending some time reading! I love to read but normally, I don’t read as much as I would like. So far, I have enjoyed 3 books, all quite different from each other. After learning about biographies with you in class, I decided to read an autobiography – that’s when someone writes their own biography. I found it really interesting and I think I’m going to try and find some more books like it. What books have you been reading and sharing with your family?
Despite these exceptional times, I hope you are keeping up with your learning, either through the school learning packs (Have you looked at the new one? Lots of different activities to look at there!) or through other ways. Perhaps, you’ve done a bit of both. I’ve also been keeping an eye on our Times Tables Rock Stars stats and it is very encouraging to see the red multiplication facts turning ever greener! Don’t forget to check out TTRS regularly because I’m setting battles. You can help your team win by playing! Come on, Year 4!
Over the lockdown, I have also joined in with Joe Wicks’ PE lessons! Embarrassingly, I thought they would be easier for me as they are supposedly for kids! Well, I was very wrong. They are not so easy… A real fitness challenge! How about you? Have you taken part in #PEwithJoeWicks?
This week, I will be phoning each of you to catch up about what you’ve been up to. I’m very much looking forward to hearing your stories!
Hopefully, I’ll see you all soon.
In the meantime, take care and stay safe,
