Computing! Childnet Film Competition

Childnet Film Competition 2020

The Childnet Film Competition is now in its 11th year and is open to all young people based in the UK. The challenge is to create a short film or a storyboard with a script in response to this year’s theme.

The theme of this year’s Childnet film competition is:

We want an Internet where we’re free to….

Think about all the things we love to do online. Create a film or storyboard that explains why we want an internet that allows people to feel free and safe online and how we can can make this happen.

Childnet have released packs to give more information about the competition and to help you to plan and make your films at home. All details can be found at https://www.childnet.com/resources/film-competition/2020

Childnet understands that young people may not have access to specialist equipment at home but don’t let that stop you. Get creative with the technology you have, including phones and tablets, or enter the storyboard category, which doesn’t require any film making equipment.

I am sure there are some great filmmakers in our midst.

Good luck and happy filmmaking.

Good Morning Year 4!

Well, what can we say!  We really enjoy receiving emails from you telling us all about the lovely things that you have been up to.  Thank you to those children who have already entered the Eggtastic Competition that the Herts Maths Team have set!  Keep sending in your entries please.  Here’s a snap shot of some of the work that you have been sending into us.

I hope that you enjoyed doing the Dragon Tangram!

These are the answers for Day 7 Answers.  Yesterday, I uploaded a message from Fran Khaliq.  Please read her message below.  It would be lovely if you are able to print off the sheet, colour it in and put it on a window in your house as a sign of unity in our Our Lady and St Vincent’s Parish!

OL&SV Poster to colour and display

Message from Francesca Khaliq, Our Lady & St Vincent’s Parish

 Dear Parents,

You may have noticed some lovely displays around of posters of rainbows in windows in the local area. This gave me an idea that we could also display something in the window, as a sign of unity of Our Lady & St Vincent’s parish community.  So please see attached an A4 poster, that you can print out and then the children can colour it in and then display in the window at home. Please pass it on to anyone else you know who are parishioners, it would be a wonderful sign of unity to have as many of these posters displayed in Potters Bar and surrounding areas. The children could even write their names on it, or a small prayer (on the bottom left or right-hand corners), anything they want to.

 I will be out on my daily exercise walk tomorrow morning and it would be wonderful to see some of these posters up, so get printing and colouring in!

 Please keep safe and well.

God bless,

 Fran

A daily reminder: you can keep in contact with Miss Dunning and I by sending us an email to: year4@popepaul.herts.sch.uk and  we will endeavour to answer your query as soon as we can.

WALT: Write similes and descriptive phrases 

Read the poem, The Eagle by Alfred Tennyson.What do you think Tennyson is talking about when he says ‘crooked hands’?

Sometimes poems are a bit like puzzles. We have to work out what they mean.

Tennyson uses similes in his poem. Similes are a type of figurative language. They are used to describe things, by comparing them to something else. Similes may use ‘like’ or ‘as’ to compare two things. Similes make our descriptions more interesting for reader. Example: His eyes were as black as coal.

Complete similes about the eagle and write as many words and phrases to describe the eagle as you can think of.

How old do you think she is?  Her expression can give us clues to the type of life she had. Describe her face. Does she have any interesting features? Where is she looking? What could she be thinking about? What is she wearing? Why do you think she was awarded those medals? Could it have been a brave act? How does she look? Do you think she has a job that is tiring? Think of jobs that require you to work very long hours. Can you guess her profession?
