29.6.20

 

Hello Year 4, we hope you are all well. The weather isn't as good at the moment but we have had some amazing weather to enjoy before this week. 

 

So many of you are doing very well with your Study Ladder and we are super proud. If you are not completing this please try your hardest to do so as it will help your learning. 

 

Have a lovely week!

Hello Year 4, I write to you all from my desk in my classroom for the first time which is very strange!

Make sure you all keep going with your Study Ladder, we love to see how well you are all doing. 

The weather is looking good for the middle of the week so make sure you get outside and enjoy the sun!

 

In our key worker bubble at school we have been learning about Henry VIII. You guys should have a look too we have been learning so much. https://classroom.thenational.academy/subjects-by-year/year-4

Hello everyone, we hope you had a good week and enjoyed your weekend. 
This week Mrs Breese and myself went for a socially distanced walk to discuss Study Ladder and Weekly Ten’s and we had a good catch up! 
Mrs Breese is taking over the online learning for the next few weeks whilst I’m in school full time. 

Have a lovely weekend, miss you all!

Hello Year 4! 
Last week was a very exciting week due to our Times Table Rockstar battle, which obviously we won! 
I was in the hub and Mrs Breese popped in so we could talk about all of you guys and look at Study Ladder, it was so lovely to see her. 
Atlantis you may be getting a phone call this week! 
As I was in school I didn’t get up to much but I did encounter a beautiful deer on one of my walks. 
 

Well done to those children still working super hard on Study Ladder. Remember that we can see exactly who is doing their Study Ladder and when. 
 

Have a lovely week!

Welcome back Year 4! We hope you had a lovely break and enjoyed the amazing weather we had. I know we did it! 

I spent most of my week in the sun, I did finally bath Joany... pictures below! 
 
Maybe this week some of you will get to see some people you haven’t in a while due to the restrictions being eased slightly. I know I will be doing a lot of doorsteps visit as I have just became an Auntie for the first time! It’s so hard not being able to have a cuddle off baby Lucas but I know by staying two metres away I’m keeping him safe. 
 

We are still learning from home, but that’s okay because you are all so brilliant at it.

This week “we” is myself and Mrs Breese! She’s back after having her gorgeous, baby girl. I am in school all week this week so Mrs Breese will be looking after you all online. 

Bath, picture, roll within 30 seconds!!!

Have a lovely half term Year 4, you deserve it. 
 

As it is half term we haven’t set any work on Study Ladder.
If any of you do want little activities to do remember there is lots on this page and other pages within Home Learning. 

 

We miss you all so very much and are so proud of every single one of you. 

Thank you Mrs Price

Everything is very different at the moment. Not being at school and learning from home is a huge example! So unfortunately we haven’t had the opportunity to say thank you and good bye to Mrs Price like we would have wanted too. 
 

I’m sure you all agree that Mrs Price was a brilliant teacher both inside the classroom and in our new home learning environment. She helped us all learn and grow and will be missed.

Last week of half term! 

Hello Year 4, can you believe we have been learning from our homes for a whole half term? You have all done so well with it and I know lots of you have been learning so many new things. You all know how proud I am of every single one of you. 
 

Last week I did a lot of walking, biking and running and I am exploring and making new things for my tea! 
 

I am in the hub this week so I’ll be making phone calls to Te Fiti, so make sure you have a think about what you want to tell me!

This week is also Mental Health Awareness Week. The focus is 'Kindness', and this is what I have themed your Weekly Ten around. Kindness helps build self-esteem, friendships, relationships and school and community spirit.

 

Below is a link to find out more about Mental Health Awareness week, your weekly ten and a video of Joany being a little monkey getting herself very dusty and muddy! She’ll be getting a bath as soon as the sun comes back out! 
 

Have a fab week Year 4. Keep working as hard as you are on Study Ladder.

Welcome to another week Year 4! We hope you all enjoyed last week, especially the bank holiday and celebrating the anniversary of VE Day. I know I did! The weather has been lovely so I’ve been outside most of the week when I haven’t been working. Mrs Price is in school this week working in the hub so Atlantis you might just get a lovely phone call. 
Keep working as hard as you all are on Study Ladder, well done to all those doing all their activities every day. You all are just fab! 
Have a good week, missing you all!

Hello Year 4! We hope you are all still enjoying Study Ladder. We are so impressed by so many of you guys, your effort with Study Ladder is absolutely amazing! We are very lucky teachers! 
This week is a strange one, it is a bank holiday on Friday. This is because it is 75 years since VE Day which signalled the end of World War Two. 
Your weekly ten is all based around this, we would love you to complete as many activities as possible and then enjoy the day with your family. The weather is meant to be good so you can really celebrate in your home and garden! Make sure you send us lots of pictures, we love seeing them so much.

VE Day Celebrations

VE Day Celebrations  1

Mrs Price has written you all a lovely story...

 

Hello Year 4 - This week I've written a 100-word story for you. It's called  'Lockdown worries' - I hope you enjoy it. Why not try writing your own 100 word story? It has to be exactly 100 words and must be a complete story. It's not as easy as it sounds!

 

The rain slides down the cracked window pane, blurring the view beyond into one unending grey. Somewhere above me water drips from a broken gutter in rhythmic, staccato beats. Dim light falls across the scarred floorboards highlighting the old tin box among books with titles as dusty as their covers. Will it still be here? I’ve waited so long for this moment. I listen for the sound of approaching footsteps but no, I am alone.  Slowly, cautiously, I open the lid. A sigh of relief escapes me; there at the bottom of the box, untouched, is my secret chocolate stash!

Had a quick cuppa outside my mum and dad’s window after I had done the horses. Tom had other ideas and stole my cup of tea!

Happy Monday Year 4! (27/4/20)
We hope you have safely enjoyed some of the beautiful sunshine over the weekend! 
Some days can seem very long at the minute and I know lots of you are missing friends and family so it is important to keep busy. 
This week to help me (Miss Ion) keep busy I have been taking part in lots of FaceTime and Zoom calls with my family and friends. Quiz nights are my favourite! I have even been quizzing with other teachers such as Miss Wilson, Miss Henry, Mrs Weir and lots more! Sometimes Mrs Burns and Mrs Hodgkins even join us! 
Let us know if you have been taking part in any FaceTimes or quizzes at homework@upperbycdc.org.uk 

Keep working hard Year 4, keep smiling and keep safe 😊

Hello Year 4, welcome to our first week using Study Ladder. We have set you all work to complete for the week. We can see the work you have completed and how you have got on with it, so we will keep checking! Remember everything we have set you is to last the week so don't worry about getting it all done today. Just like at school there is one arithmetic activity, one (maybe two) maths activity, one reading comprehension, one English activity and a foundation subject activity per day.

On some of the activities it has a little pencil on the right hand corner, it gives you room to work things out so make sure you use it if you need too, especially in maths.

 

Below you can see we have created 'ten things you can do this week' as little extra tasks, pick a couple and have a go.When you do any remember to take a picture and email them to us at homework@upperbycdc.org.uk

 

Don't forget to battle it out on TTRS!

Ten things to do this week!

We hope you have enjoyed Easter at home Year 4. We know it may have been completely different to your normal Easter but by staying at home you are helping so so many people, you really are all amazing! If you are really lucky you might have eaten lots of chocolate eggs and special treats over the Easter weekend. Miss Ion spent Easter Sunday baking Creme Egg brownie and because she can't see anyone she has to eat it all herself! What a shame! 

 

You should all have some work left in your packs for this week's work, if not there is still plenty on this page, but just in case we will put a few new bits on here.
