Year 4 has been very busy this week with lots of opportunities to participate in sport activities.
On Tuesday, we enjoyed our first session with Mr Mills, learning core skills in tennis. The children did very well and could complete rallies up to 39 hits by end of our lesson!
On Thursday, we participated in a Cricket taster session, trying our hand at fielding and batting, learning how to hold the baton and how to complete runs to gain points for our teams. The children loved playing the game and reported that they wouldn’t mind more in the future 🙂
On the same day, after school, the majority of the children joined the athletics club lead by Miss Pringle, where they could refresh their running and jumping skills.
We also completed our daily mile, where some children achieved great improvement compared to the beginning, increasing their lap numbers from 5 to up to 12! Again, very well done!
This week, the children have also finished their lamps by inserting their circuits and switches. It has been a great few weeks working on this D&T project and the children did very well, thinking about their designs and taking ownership of their plans and the execution!
Please make sure the lamps are switched off when not in use, as the small, simple battery holders used in the models can get hot!
We wish you a lovely bank holiday long weekend,
Ms Varga and Mrs McNamara
Please see below the Home Learning:
|Due Tuesday, 4th May 2021|
|Spelling||Please log onto Spellingframe and spend some times practicing this week’s spelling words before testing yourself.|

|Times table||Please log onto Hit the button and spend some time practicing your mixed number facts, with special focus on the division facts.|
|Science||For your Science Home Learning this week, I would like you to go on an ‘Appliance Hunt’. I would like you to go around your house and record appliances that use electricity. Beyond noticing them, I also want you to have a think: What is the effect of electricity in them? Does electricity change sound? change light? change movement? change temperature?
Record them in a table please. Please record at least 12 appliances that use electricity in a variety of ways.
Be ready to present your learning on Tuesday, as we will stick them into Science books.
|Art||Next week, I would like the children to complete an art activity that would support their English learning. As part of our whole school writing project, the children will have to describe a house made of flowers. Using art straws, I would like the children to build these models so that it would help them with their descriptive paragraph.
If you can, please could you support this by sending in some flowers. They can be fresh or dried. They don’t have to be shop bought! The children can pick some on their way to school or from their gardens.
We are planning to make these models on Tuesday and Wednesday.
