Dear Blue Class and Parents/Carers,

We are missing you all but hope you are well.  We have uploaded further Maths and English workbooks to support your learning whilst school remains closed.  Try to complete a little maths and English each day if you can but make sure you also enjoy daily fresh air and the sunshine. 

Please connect with us through our Facebook page that we share with Green Class. https://www.facebook.com/groups/201596081165218/?ref=nf_target&fref=nf

We are on Facebook in our virtual community to help you with any home learning, to give ideas of fun activities and to help you feel connected.    Please contact us through school or Facebook for any support you require during school closure times, we are still here.

Take care and keep in touch.

Miss Ross and Mrs Pedley

 

 

 

Further ideas and activities for home learning can be found at the bottom of this page.

WE ARE BRILLIANT BLUES!

That's right...we are brilliant in every way!

 

Our teachers are Mrs Ross and Mrs Pedley with the help of Miss Torgoose. 

Blue Class is a Year 4 class where we try our hardest and have promised to try our best, focus and listen carefully to make ourselves even better than we already are! In Blue Class we are trying to be independent so we must remember to hand our books in when they need changing, complete our homework and remember to hand it in and organise ourselves for P.E. 

 

Reading Challenge!

A focus across the school at the moment is reading so in Blue Class we are challenging ourselves to read at home at least 4 times a week but daily reading is preferred as the more we read the better! There will be a reward for the class who read the most at home and we want to win! Reading is really important for our development so it needs to be recorded in our reading records so our teachers know when we have read and can then ask us questions to see if we have understood what we have read.

 

Homework

Homework is given out every Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Each week we receive spellings which will be tested the following Friday so that we can keep practising them all week. We will usually receive a piece of Maths and Literacy weekly on a Friday too. If we are stuck with our homework we can ask for help on Monday so that we still have time to complete it for Wednesday. If for some reason we don’t receive any homework we need to practise our times tables on time tables rockstars, we all know our log ins. If our log ins decide not to work then we can practise our times tables on other online games or in writing.

 

P.E

We are really lucky because we have sports coaches to teach us PE. Mrs Potts is teaching us P.E as well as our teachers so we must make sure our P.E kit comes into school on a Monday and stays in school all week. Even though it is getting colder we will still teach some P.E lessons outside so we must have our indoor and outdoor kits with us. 

 

We always have lots of exciting learning to share with you so watch this space!

Our door is always open should you have any questions or queries. Thank you smiley 

 

Below are some websites and resources to support your child's home learning :)

Year 4 Home learning pack

Science Summer Term 

Week 1

 

From now on each week I will not only upload an investigation for you to do but also a reading comprehension linked to science, sometimes it will also link to the investigation you are doing too.

 

Science based reading comprehension

Below you will find two main sets of resources , a set with HA (higher ability) and a set with LA (lower ability) . Please feel free to use which set you prefer as you will know which your child is able to read most easily - not too easy though remember to give them a bit of a challenge. You will need the reading resource and the questions to go with it , all of which you could read on line if you would prefer rather than printing it all out.

Science Investigation

Week 3 WC 4th May

Last week you all had an investigation linked to mystery animals and this week The Linnean Society are running a competition called 'Special species competition' based on what you did last week. If you want to enter here is the link  https://www.linnean.org/learning/special-species-competition  . They are also running a free video session this Thursday at 10 am if you want to learn more about different animal species- the link is the same as above and you can book your place at the bottom of their page.

Many of you did some fantastic work based on your own designed mystery animal so I'm sure you could have a go at entering. Please let me know if you do enter and I'll keep an eye out for it on their webpage and Twitter account. 

 

I thought this week we would continue on with the animal based theme and look at classification of animals- Carl Linneaus invented the classification system which we use for animals, including humans.

On Wednesday this week the BBC Bitesize lesson will also be based around classification so it would be great if you could watch that. I have also found this link https://explorify.wellcome.ac.uk/blog/explorify-at-home-classification which has a range of videos on it and explanations which link with the BBC lesson, some of your children will recognise this website as teachers often use Explorify in the classroom.

Enjoy the science activities and I've got a new investigation and competition ready for next week.

Summer Term Week 4 WC 11th May 

The investigation and competition for this week are on the Class page for all the year groups to take part in.

Science Investigation WC 15th June

I know many of you have been doing the investigations which I've put on the Class Page every week but I think some of you have struggled to find them so I thought that I would also put them on here this week for you.

In normal circumstances I had planned for us all to take part in the Great Science Share this week. The Great Science Share is all about you and your own questions based around science which you ask then have a go at answering, using whichever method and whatever resources you need. So here is your challenge , you can even get a special enamel badge for taking part, many of you have experimented with the investigations and questions which I have put up each week I would like you to choose your favourite and then ask your own question linked to it. I have attached a couple of forms which you can fill in either by printing them out or filling them in on the computer and then send them off to claim your free badge. I'm looking forward to seeing all your Whizz Pop Bang badges when we are all back at school. If you are struggling to think of a question you could always use the key question starters of - what , who, why, how and when to help you. The grid below might also give you a few ideas.

Science Investigations WC 22nd June

This week is STEM Clubs Week.

Each day I will upload a learning activity on the whole school class page(see this link https://www.friskneyprimary.co.uk/class-pages/ ) which will look at a range of a different science areas. These activities will all be practical hands on opportunities which will only require a few resources from around your home.

You can also watch interviews by scientists who do a range of jobs such as Food Scientist, Spacecraft thermal engineer, oceanographic scientist and aeronautical engineer by clicking on this link: https://www.youtube.com/stemlearning
