Hi Class 4,
Hope you are all well and managed to spend time in the garden today with the lovely sunshine. I am sure the home learning packs are keeping you busy but I wanted to share with you some other resources and ideas as well. It’s a really good idea to create a timetable for your weekdays, if possible.
Sometimes it’s just nice to listen to somebody else read to you. The link below should take you to David Walliams’ site where he reads a free audio story from ‘The World’s Worst Children’ – the story changes each day. https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/
For English, I think it would be a great idea to keep a diary. You may feel like you have nothing to write about but you are all living in history right now. The following link: https://www.literacyshedplus.com/en/resource/a-cloudy-lesson-ks2-activity-pack should take you to a lovely short film and free activity pack. You are free to pick and choose the activities you would like to complete from the pack. Why not show off to your parents and write the dialogue for the video? After all, you are fantastic at the Hand of Speech!
As Mr Jones has already shared, White Rose are providing Home Learning activities and videos for maths. Here are the links, this week’s objectives are all ones we have already completed in School so hopefully you can get off to a confident start. https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ I have also released all of the decimal activities on My Maths as well, ignore the due dates – I just have to choose one in order to set the tasks.
Joe Wicks is doing a PE session each weekday. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLyCLoPd4VxBvQafyve889qVcPxYEjdSTl There are also some lovely yoga videos on YouTube too, if you fancy a different activity. Go Noodle is another good resource for mindfulness and physical activity breaks – it is free to sign up for. I’m sure you can’t wait to show your parents the ‘Take a Breath’ video!
Why not create a rainbow, as a symbol of hope, for your window. They really do brighten up your daily walk – I know the ones I have seen brought a smile to my face.
Finally, a spot of science. This term we have been focusing on forces. Why not create a ramp in your garden and time how long it takes a toy car to roll down it? Can you slow the time this takes down by changing the material on the ramp? Some materials will produce more friction than others. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zsxxsbk/articles/zxqrdxs
You could also investigate ‘How to make the best parachute?’ There’s lots of ideas to help you with this online. The greater the air resistance, the slower your parachute will fall. Can you remember the other force that will be acting on your parachute?
I am sure all of these activities will keep you busy for a while. Remember even though Miss Hughes and I are not seeing you at the moment, we still care about each and everyone of you and are proud of your achievements. We are here if you need us. Keep up the hard work!
