Thursday 2nd April
Hello there... I enjoyed looking at your animations and Easter eggs yesterday. It's not too late to do the work if you didn't have time yesterday.
I've set work for the next 2 days on purple mash:
chapter 1 and 2 of The Magic Pen and questions to answer
ordering angles and acute and obtuse angles
Don't forget if you don't score very well you can always have another go.
Writing challenge for the next 2 days. Write instructions of how to make a simple meal or bake a cake or buns. Follow them with an adult. Did they work or was it tricky? If they didn't work then edit and re-write them. Don't forget to list your ingredients, number each instruction and use imperative (bossy) verbs. Take a picture of your finished food and save it for when we get back to school. yummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmy !
Finally don't forget to login to Classroom Secrets Kids and complete some of the cool activities.
Take care and don't forget to do some exercise every day!

Wednesday 25th March and Thursday 26th March
Wow - what a lovely sunny day. One of your very important jobs today is to sit outside - on your doorstep or in your garden and write a list of how many sounds you can hear. Listen really carefully like we did in the wild area and count all the different bird tweets. I got 3 in my garden! Record them in your exercise book. Also find something in nature (leaf, stick, bug, pet etc) and sketch it very carefully. If you have crayons you can colour it in. If not the shade using your pencil.
Literacy - write a poem about being outside ( going for a walk, in the forest, by a stream, climbing a tree, sitting in a field, watching birds etc). You can use the cherry tree poem to inspire you. Don't forget to use similes, metaphors and exciting vocabulary. It doesn't have to rhyme though. You can make a border and illustrate your poem too.
Spag.com - Standard English work
Purple mash - teeth and digestive system work. Can you draw the digestive system in your book?
Maths - complete all the addition sheets by the end of the week.
Massive well done to Molly, Daisy and Aliyah for being top workers!! Well done to everyone else who has logged on.
Byeeeeee for now

SCHOOL HOME LEARNING
Hope you are staying safe.
Just to keep you updated on what will be happening during school closures.
I will set 2 tasks per day for children and details will be on this page.
Below are a list of websites that your child can access. They have been given passwords in their learning pack.
www.ttrockstars.co.uk - I have sent a rockslam request to all children. Can you beat the teacher AKA Mrs. Hitchen?
www.classroomsecretskids.co.uk - plenty of maths, reading and science activities to complete
As well as these websites there are many others such as Twinkl (https://www.twinkl.co.uk/) that are offering free membership that you may want to sign up to in addition to those listed below. I have also heard that the National Trust are making parking/admission free during this period to enable families to enjoy the outdoors.
Finally as part of our topic work I challenge you to have a go at creating your own Greek Labyrinth. You can either make one using any items around the house (cushions, lego, toy cars, spaghetti, paper etc) or outdoors (sticks, stones, leaves etc). Take a pic and save it to show us when we return to school. You could even draw one and challenge a family member to get to the centre to fight the minotaur!
What a fantastic Greek day we have had today! The children have worked so hard and shown their problem solving skills by making their very own pair of Greek sandals. They have designed, made and evaluated their work. We hope you enjoy looking at the finished product.
We have also made Greek breads to dip into the tzatziki. They were very sticky but tasted delicious with our Greek olives and Feta cheese.
To finish the day we used bright paints to create our own name card in Greek.
Welcome to fabulous 4KH class page. I hope your child is enjoying life in year 4 ! Mrs.Hitchen is the class teacher and is joined by Miss.Humphries, Miss Mouidin and Mrs.Reid.

Well done you are super stars!!!
Our topic is materials this half term. We have been acting out being the particles inside SOLIDS,LIQUIDS and GASES. It was great fun. We have also been investigating changing states. We have investigated the best temperature to MELT chocolate and which fizzy drink contains the most CARBON DIOXIDE (GAS).
Our topic this half term in Greeks. We have already found where Greece is in the world and are now busy finding out what life was like for the Greeks.
In literacy we have been looking at Greek myths such as Pandora's Box and The Minotaur. Now children have been excitedly making up their own mythical beast and are busy planning their own Greek myths. Watch this space for our finished work...
