Hello Year 4 (and parents),
I hope that you are all keeping safe and well and that you had a lovely Easter. I hope too that you have been able to enjoy some of the beautiful sunshine we’ve been having. I am missing you all and looking forward to hearing what you are up to.
Below are some ideas for this week. Please don't feel you have to do them all! They are there to help and support you.
Please use whatever is helpful for you.
Did you manage to complete any of the Book Bingo holiday challenges?
Let me know which ones you completed and which your favourite challenge was.
This week’s reading activities are based on the opening chapters of ‘The Train to Impossible Places’ by P.G.Bell. This book was shortlisted for the Children's Book Prize 2019. If you enjoy these opening chapters, don’t forget to ask to borrow the book when we get back to school. It’s on our list of 50 recommended books for Year 4 and we have a couple of copies in class.
Don’t forget you can also listen to David Walliam’s ‘Elevenses’ stories at https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/
and to Michael Rosen stories and poems at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7D-mXO4kk-XWvH6lBXdrPw
Remember that the arithmetic sheet has the answers and some hints on the second page! The small group sheet is for the children who usually work with Mrs Bennett and Mrs Savage.
This week we’re also thinking about symmetry.
Our Science topic for this term is The Digestive System and we’re starting with the mouth!
If we were in school, we’d have finished our swimming lessons and would be practising our cricket skills.
Here are some throwing and bowling skills that you could practise at home, indoors or in the garden.
