Hello Year 4 (and parents),
I hope you are all keeping well and looking after yourselves. Thank you to everyone who has sent me work and photos. I've had some fantastic photos of the water cycle, a great book review and seen a wonderful poster about Japan. I can see that lots of you have been practising your times tables on TTrockstars and using Purple Mash too. It's been lovely to see your work and hear about some of the things you've been doing.
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 as we all adjust to new routines. Please use whatever is helpful for you.
I look forward to hearing about what you've been up to this week!
If you enjoy David Walliam's books, you might like to listen to his "Elevenses' stories. He's reading a different story each day at 11am (or available afterwards). You can find them on his website https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/ or by searching for 'David Williams elevenses.' There are also lots of activities on his website so you could choose some reading activities from there.
There are also lots of brilliant stories and poems on Michael Rosen's youtube channel. Let me know which are your favourites.
I found a poem this week called "The Treasures" and it really made me think about what is precious to us. Have a look and maybe try some of the activities.
If we'd been in school, I'd have sent home another Book Bingo for the holidays. Here's an adapted version - you might have to be a bit more creative than usual! See how many of the reading challenges you can complete during the holiday.
Here are the answers to last week's puzzling problems and a new set of arithmetic questions. Like last week, there are some hints and the answers on the second page.
Continuing the watery theme from last week, here's an interesting investigation to try. Let me know how you get on!
