Year 4 - 2

Meet and Greet!

This week we are offering children a chance to chat with their new class teacher in an online video session!

Before the session children should think about what they would like to achieve next year and what they may be worried about. You can then send a picture of the work by email.

Here are some ideas on how you might do this -

1. You could write a few short sentences describing your hopes and dreams for next year, what you are most looking forward too and then what you are worried most about.

2. You could create a ‘All About Me’ collage. Cut out magazines, draw or print off pictures and glue them onto an A4 piece of paper. Include things you like, quotes to inspire yourself. Draw a bubble to show what you are worried about.

3. Create a presentation slide using your computing skills. Include on your slide, what you are hoping for next year and what you are worried about.

 

 

The timetable for your class is below. Make sure you sign up by emailing your name in with ‘Meet and Greet [your new class teacher]’ in the subject line, for example ‘Meet and Greet Mr McCann’.

Have fun and we look forward to seeing you all there!

Update From Miss Davey -  06-07-20

Hello 4-2

Hope you are all OK. It was so lovely to see some of you during our online marking sessions on Friday. I think Miss Hawkins and I were a bit better at using the laptops this week, I hope you agree! We really enjoy seeing your faces and hearing your voices – we have missed you all loads! Hopefully we’ll see you again onscreen on Friday.

Our activities this week are similar to last week – You’ve got a maths skills to complete and a grammar challenge to have a go at. We are going to mark these in our online sessions on Friday. You’ve also then got a maths challenge, writing challenge, history challenge and art challenge to try – you can send us these in but we won’t be going over them in the online sessions. You’ve still got Ed City tasks, Bug Club, TTRS, My Maths etc too! Your English and History Challenges are linked – so whatever research you do can be used for both tasks.

I continue to be amazed by the word you are completing at home – keep an eye on this page as I’m going to add some examples to it. I’ll add the shout outs later today too.

Miss D x

yesGreat TTRS work from Oscar G and Luke G - well done!yes

laughOn My Maths, Luke G and Imogen have blown me away with the amount of work they did last week AND their SUPERB scores. Well done guys laugh 

smileyGreat my maths work from Caleb, Oscar, Darci, Josh R and Jack too - keep it up! smiley

On Education City, Luke G completed all of the tasks  - keep it up Luke. Imgoen, Faith and Jack have also been working hard. Well done guys!

Here are some examples of great work sent in by members of our class this week. A nice variety of work, well done! 

 

Tasks for Online Sessions - W/C 06/07/20

The maths skills online session will be at 9am on Friday and the Grammar session will be at 1pm. Send an email with “Year 4 English session” or “Year 4 Maths session” in the subject bar and we will add you to the list. For the Maths, we will only go over section A and some of section B (due to time restraints), but we will put the answer sheet on the website on Friday after the online session so you can mark the rest of it, if you want to do it. Now we’ve got the hang of the online sessions, Miss Hawkins and I will try and think of some more games we can play too.  Plus, remember, you don’t need to print the sheet off if you don’t want to or haven’t got a printer. Just grab a piece of paper and write your answers down on it! The Grammar Challenge and Maths skills are below.

Writing Challenge - WC 06/07/20

Your writing challenge this week is to produce a report on either The Vikings or The Romans and their time in Britain. You already know lots about both groups of people – but this is your chance to discover more about them and it links to your History challenge too! Your report needs to be really informative; imagine you are writing it for someone who doesn’t know anything about the Romans or the Vikings. Tell the reader who they were, when they invaded, why they invaded and some cool facts and information about them – for example some of the things they invaded (Roman toilets?!?). Remember to use subheadings, text boxes and pictures to make your report easy to read. I’ve included some examples of good reports about animals to help you.

Maths Challenge 3 - Translation (wb 6.7.20):

This week’s Maths Challenge is all about translation! Translation is when a point slides from one place to another in a straight line. It can move up, down, left or right!

We can translate points on a co-ordinate plane and describe the translation in terms of the number of units moved to the right or left and the number of units moved up or down.

Take a look at this example:

To get from point A to point B, we have translated the point 4 left, 6 up.

Your task is to have a go at the following worksheet. Firstly, you will need to give the co-ordinates of the coloured dots. Then, you will need to give the new co-ordinates of the coloured dots AFTER they have been translated!

Challenge yourself:

Why not have a go at this Translations Treasure Hunt game? You could play by yourself or with a member of you family. Whoever collects the most treasure wins!!

History Challenge – Timeline - w/c 06/07/20

Your history task is straightforward – create a timeline of events from either The Viking or The Roman age in Britain (you might want to do a bit of both and that’s fine by us!) Choose the events which are most interesting to you and draw a timeline to show the order in which they happened. Here is an example to help you out!

Art Challenge 2 – Andy Warhol – Self-Portrait (wb 6.7.20)

This week’s Art Challenge is to create a self-portrait in the style of Andy Warhol. Take a look at these examples by Andy Warhol. Think about the colours used, how they are different and how they make you feel.

Whichever kind of self-portrait you will be doing (unless you are using a camera), remember that it is important to use a mirror and draw what you actually see and not what you think you see! Look closely at the proportions of your face and the size and shape of your features. There are lots of ways that you can achieve your own Andy Warhol inspired self-portrait! Here are some ideas:

Update from Miss Davey 29/06/20

 

Hello 4-2

How are you all? It was so lovely to see some of your faces during our online marking sessions on Friday. Sorry for the technical difficulties (you know that my laptop doesn’t do what it’s told and that I am not very good at using it!) – Hopefully it’ll be a bit smoother this week. I can’t believe how rainy it has been over the weekend, I hope you still managed to do something fun.

 

Our activities this week are similar to last week – You’ve got a maths skills to complete and a comprehension task to have a go at. We are going to mark these in our online sessions on Friday. You’ve also then got a maths challenge, writing challenge and art challenge to try – you can send us these in but we won’t be going over them in the online sessions. You’ve still got Ed City tasks, Bug Club, TTRS, My Maths etc too!

 

yesyesBig shout out to Luke G for completing everything on Education City last week. Well done Luke!yesyes

yesyesBig shout out to Oscar too, for beating me on TTRS challenge. yesyes

yesGreat work online by Luke M, Faith, Imogen, Gor, Josh R, Luke D, Caleb, Josh R and Jack S too – well done! I was really pleased to see the high scores on your skills check and grammar tasks last week too. Thank you and well done to everyone who joined in.yes

 

Keep being amazing, don’t forget to send me your work when you’ve done it. I love seeing it laugh

Writing Challenge - W/C 29/06/20

Your writing challenge this week is to include correctly punctuated speech in a character description. Write about meeting a character from a book, film or TV show – think about what that character looks like, what that character does, what they say to you and what you would say back. Write those ideas down somewhere to plan your work and then write your narrative describing what happens when you meet them. It doesn’t need to be too long, just enough to get some nice description and some dialogue between you and the character. I chose meeting the White Witch from The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, because we read it together earlier in the year. You can choose whichever character you like! I can’t wait to read them! Take a look at my example below to help you understand what we mean.

Maths Challenge 2 - Co-ordinates (wb 29.6.20):

Take a look at this week's Maths Challenge below. It is split up into three different tasks and is all about co-ordinates!

Challenge yourself!

Why not practice using co-ordinates on Microsoft Excel? Take a look at the YouTube video to learn how to create a Battleships-style game. 

Art Challenge - Andy Warhol's 'Campbell's Soup Cans' (wb 29.6.20)

One of Andy Warhol's most famous words of art is his series of paintings showing cans on Campbell's soup. Some people really enjoyed the artwork but most people thought it was ridiculous. Even though not everyone likes Warhol's soup cans at the time, they soon became extremely popular and iconic. Warhol created many more paintings and prints of soup cans in the following years. In some of them, he experimented with different colours. 

 

Take a look at the later 'Campbell's Soup' work by Warhol. What do you think of these colours? Why do you think he has chosen these colours?

This week's Art Challenge is to choose four different sets of colours to colour in Campbell's soup cans (worksheet provided below). I would suggest trying out different colour combinations beforehand to see which you like best together. Remember to work slowly and carefully to make your cans into works of art and not just coloured-in pictures. 

 

Challenge yourself!

Have a go at designing your own soup can label using the template provided! Think about the flavour of your soup - this can be anything you like, from roasted vegetable soup to bubblegum soup!

 

Remember to submit your artwork to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk and include your teacher's name in the subject bar.

Update from Miss Davey 21/06/20

Hi 4-2!

Just a quick message today – As well as sorting out your activities for the week, I’m prepping activities for my “bubble” in the Hub tomorrow and want to get them done before Liverpool V Everton!!! I’m so excited to watch it this evening, and I bet lots of you are too! Remember when we used to make predictions about the Derby Score in class and see who would be right? You always amaze me with how creative the scores could be, but make me so proud when you were all good friends, supporting and congratulating each other on your teams’ performance the next morning. I hope you enjoy the match!

 

Our activities are a little different this week – You’ve got a grammar challenge and a maths skills to complete. We are going to mark these in our online sessions on Friday. You’ve also then got a maths challenge, writing challenge and  art challenge to try – you can send us these in but we won’t be going over them in the online sessions.  There is information about Black Lives Matter further down the page. If you're still bored, don't forget that you’ve still got Ed City tasks , Bug Club, TTRS, My Maths etc too!

 

Shoutouts - added Tuesday 23.06.20 - so much great work has been sent in over the past week! I have loved reading it! Great work online from Luke G, Imogen A, Faith N, Caleb H, Josh R, Gor J, Jack S, Gor J, Luke D, Luke Mc and Alex M. yesParticularly Luke G for finishing all of his education city work!!! yes

Well done to Oscar as well  - he beat me in the TTRS challenge again! 

 

Missing you lots, I hope you are all being good!

Tasks for Online Sessions

The Grammar and Maths Skills Check you can complete for the online sessions are below.

 

The maths skills online session will be at 9am on Friday and the grammar session will be at 1pm. Send an email to the teacher account with “Year 4 English session” or “Year 4 Maths session” in the subject bar and we will add you to the list.

For the Maths, we will only go over section A (due to time restraints), but we will put the answer sheet on the website on Friday after the online session so you can mark the rest of it, if you want to do it.

 

Please remember, it’s the first time Miss Hawkins and I have done anything like this, so please be patient! Plus, remember, you don’t need to print the sheet off if you don’t want to or haven’t got a printer. Just grab a piece of paper and write your answers down on it!

 

Year 4 Writing Challenge - W/C 22/06/20

Your task this week is to show off how well you can use fronted adverbials! We want you to write a setting description as if you were entering a place. It can be any place – your kitchen, a football stadium, Narnia… It doesn’t matter whether it is real or imagined! Your fronted adverbials will really help you to describe the setting. Have a look at Miss Davey’s example to help you out. She’s written as if she was in the Hogwarts Great Hall for the first time (Harry Potter, typical!!)…. We’ve also underlined all the fronted adverbials to remind you what they are and how they work in a sentence and given you some ideas of what fronted adverbials you can use. You don’t need to do this on your writing, unless you want to! Remember to use your senses to describe the place to the reader. We can’t wait to see your writing!! Send them to us on the teacher email!

Year 4 Maths Challenge (wb 22.6.20)

This week, your Maths Challenge is going to be all about symmetry! Something is symmetrical when it is the same on both sides. A shape has symmetry if a central dividing line (a mirror line) can be drawn on it to show that both sides of the shape are exactly the same.

 

Your task is to look for symmetry around the house. Have a look around you and see if you can find anything symmetrical! Take a photo and if possible, indicate the line/s of symmetry. If you have an iPad or mobile phone, it may be possible to do this by drawing over the photos you take. Alternatively, you may wish to print the photos out or even sketch the symmetrical household objects yourself, drawing on the line/s of symmetry afterwards. 

 

Have a go and submit your work to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk. Make sure you include your teacher's name in the subject bar. 

Black Lives Matter

No doubt many of you will have seen images or heard about current events on the news. People have been protesting and rioting due to the killing of a black man named George Floyd. We have put together some information for you so you can understand this a little more and maybe understand why it is all happening.

There have been many protests across the world. The protests in Minneapolis began in reaction to the death of a man named George Floyd after he was stopped by police officers. A former officer has been charged with murder. The protests have now spread across the USA to cities and also here in the UK. Most protests are peaceful and spread the message of solidarity and togetherness with everyone regardless of the colour of their skin or race.

Racism is not something new but now more than ever something has to be done about it.

Learn more by visiting the Newsround pages - https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52965984

And read A Book about Racism here –

https://youtu.be/LnaltG5N8nE

For more books to read look at the guide below.

Think about how we can come together to support Black families and people of colour. Challenge yourself to design a poster, write a poem or even do a dance to show support to others.

Art Activity 2 - At the Pantomime:

At the pantomime, you may have noticed that some of the characters hold props which are very important to their costumes. A prop is any portable object that an actor uses on stage. They can be anything from cauldrons and cradles to food and flowers! Other examples that you may be more familiar with include a shield or a wand. 

 

In 'Peter Pan', Captain Hood needs a hook for his hand. In 'Cinderella', the Fairy Godmother needs a wand. Kings, queens, princes and princesses usually wear crowns. Palace guards might even need swords and shields!

 

Your task is to create a labelled design of a costume accessory for a pantomime character of your choice. You could design a hat, crown, wand, sword, shield or anything else! Think about what design features, shapes, colours, images and patterns you could use and don't forget to say who the accessory is for. Once again, be creative with this and use a range of media to create your design (e.g. coloured pencils, felts, tissue paper, sequins, ribbon, etc). 

 

Remember to submit your designs to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk and make sure you include your teacher's name in the subject bar. 

NEW - ONLINE VIDEO MARKING SESSIONS

 

Beginning the week of the 22nd of the June, children will be able to access online video marking sessions.  Each class will have two sessions per week - one English session and one Maths session.  These will be hosted by the class teachers.

 

Teachers will administer English and Maths tasks specific to their year group every Monday morning.  The marking sessions, which will be linked to the tasks, will take place towards the end of the week in order to give the children time them.  

 

As well as giving the children feedback on their work, the sessions are an ideal opportunity for children to see their teachers and friends safely.  The sessions will be both informative and light-hearted.

 

Click on the documents below to see when your online sessions will take place as well as finding out how to access this online learning opportunity.

Hello 4-2!

How are you all doing? It has been lovely to hear from a few more of you this week, when you've emailed work through. Your work has been fabulous- have a little look underneath this post and see if any of your work is on our page. I know from hearing from some of you that you've been keeping in touch with each other on facetime and little meet ups in the park, which is lovely to know! I managed to see my Mum, Dad and sister  for the first time in 6 months yesterday (outside and socially distanced, of course!), so I know how it feels to be reunited with the people we've been missing over lockdown. Just remember to keep 2metres away from each other and keep washing your hands properly smiley

 

Lots of you have been working hard at home!   yesShout outs to Luke D, Oscar, Caleb, Josh H, Darci, Sienna, Jack, Imogen, Luke G Luke Mc, Josh R, Faith and Gor for their hard work on the online learnning tasks.  laugh

Writing Challenge 9 - a leaflet

 

This week’s writing challenge combines Science, Sport and some ICT if you want to use it.  We’d like you to compose a leaflet detailing the benefits of exercise on our health.

 

We can all name some of the physical benefits of exercise but you should also consider the mental benefits as well as the social opportunities sport provides.  You may also wish to mention healthy eating and drinking.  Begin your writing task by going online and researching the topic, then think about how you are going to word your work.

 

Here are some websites that may help you -

https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/exercise.html

https://www.getactivesports.com/benefits-of-exercise-for-children/

https://www.healthdirect.gov.au/benefits-of-physical-activity-for-children

 

Take your time with this challenge; you have all week to get it right and to get it to a high standard.  Remember our writing process; pre-write (research notes) > draft > revise > edit > publish.

 

We have included a Microsoft Publisher template, which you can type on and add images to.  You don’t have to use this but it’s there for you should you wish to do so.  If you do choose to use it, you could use the red writing as a guide as to what should be in each section or feel free to change it as you wish.  Make sure you delete the red writing to add in your own writing.

 

Have a go and submit your leaflet to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk.  Make sure you include your teacher's name in the subject bar.

 

Good luck and have fun!

Science Challenge 6

As part of keeping healthy you have to maintain a balanced diet. That's where science comes in.

 

This challenge is all about nutrition in our diet and finding that balance. There are lots of activities below linked to food nutrition and recipe ideas. There is lots to explore and discover.

 

Firstly, use the 'Meal Fact Cards Activity' below to think about where in the world these meals come from (answers on the Science page). Research them, make an educated guess, for example you may know that rice is a very popular dish in China, therefore a meal containing mainly rice may come from Asia.

Here is a map of the continents to help you too.

Once you have completed this task you then need to start putting together a meal for a footballer or any other sports star. You will need to consider the nutritional value of the food. Often sport stars need lots of carbohydrates for energy and protein to help muscle growth. Use the 'Eat Well Guide' to help you out. Complete the 'My Full Time Recipe' activity.

 

Don't forget to drink plenty too, you could use the survey attached below to see how much fluid you take in one day!

 

Send your teacher your work by emailing it in to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk

 

Look forward to seeing your ideas!

 

You can see more examples and ideas on our Science page here.

World Environment Day/World Oceans Day Challenges (wb 8.6.20):

 

This month, we are celebrating World Environment Day (Friday 5th June) and World Oceans Day (Monday 8th June). This is a time to think about and take action towards protecting our environment. Unfortunately, Britain has been experiencing a growing litter problem since the easing of lockdown restrictions with people leaving their rubbish in parks and on beaches! We would love for you to have your say and have ensured that some of this week’s challenges allow you to do so.

Science Challenges

Seeing challenges about plastic pollution and the ocean has us wondering about the water in our world.

The water in our world is ancient, it’s the same water the dinosaurs splashed about in and Jesus turned to wine!

Your challenge this week is to learn about the water cycle and how it goes round and round and round. There is a guide below and further guides and activities on the science page.

 

Check it out!

Writing Challenge 8:

This week’s Writing Challenge is to write a formal, persuasive letter to the Environment Secretary, The Rt Hon George Eustice MP, expressing your concern about the growing litter problem and the impact littering has. In the main body of your letter, try to write two/three paragraphs which detail different ways that littering affects our environment and why it needs to be stopped (e.g. harmful to animals, destroys habitats, etc.). Remember to also make suggestions about what people can do to help and the ways in which this issue can be dealt with.

 

Before writing your letter, I would recommend carrying out some research. In particular, try to find some powerful facts and statistics which strengthen your argument and support the points you wish to make. You may find the following websites and video clip useful.

https://worldschildrensprize.org/litterfacts

https://www.ducksters.com/science/environment/land_pollution.php

Video clip - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zwywmnb

 

I have also included a list of persuasive letter features, a persuasive writing word mat and a writing frame to start you off. Try to include some sentence types as well if you can. A ‘The more, the more’ and ‘If, if, if, then’ sentence would fit nicely in a piece of writing like this.

 

Take your time with this challenge and remember our writing process; pre-write (notes) > draft > revise > edit > publish.

 

Have a go and submit your persuasive letter to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk. Make sure you include your teacher’s name in the subject bar.

 

Good luck!

DT/Geography Challenge:

When you bring a packed lunch to school, do you ever think about how much single-use plastic it contains? A lot of typical packed lunch items (including water bottles, crisps and snack bars) are all packaged with single-use plastic which is intended to be used only once before it is thrown away or recycled. The amount of plastic we use is causing considerable damage to the environment and is threatening thousands of seabirds, sea turtles, seals and other marine mammals each year.

 

Lunchbox Challenge:

As it is World Oceans Day on Monday 8th June, we should do our part to reduce the amount of single-use plastic we use. Your task is to make a packed lunch that does not contain any single-use plastic. However, using plastic in the form of Tupperware containers and reusable water bottles IS allowed as we can use this plastic again and again!

 

You will need to think about the food items you choose, taking into account how they are packaged. Consider wrapping snacks in tin foil or greaseproof paper instead!

 

If possible, take a picture of your packed lunch and submit it to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk. Make sure you include your teacher’s name in the subject bar.

 

Good luck!

Art/Geography Challenge:

Keeping with our theme this week, your task is to design a poster which deters people from littering. Think of a catchy slogan (e.g. “Put Litter in it’s Place”, “Littering is for Losers”) and try to include some key facts which emphasise the huge negative impact that litter is having on our environment. Consider additional elements you want to include (e.g. rhetorical questions, powerful images) and be as creative as you can! Your poster needs to be eye-catching so don’t be afraid to experiment with using a variety of materials such as felt-tips, coloured pencils and tissue paper.

 

I have also included an example below which you may wish to magpie ideas from.

 

Have a go and submit your poster to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk. Make sure you include your teacher’s name in the subject bar.

 

Have fun and be creative!

Maths Challenge WB: 8th June 2020

Arithmetic Challenge WB: 8th June 2020

Update from Miss Davey- 01/06/20

Hello 4-2!

How are you all? I hope you are OK! I am enjoying being able to go out a little bit more, now that Boris Johnson has said that we can leave the house for as much exercise as we like.

Examples of the AMAZING work our class have been doing from home!

Writing challenge 6 - 18/05/20  – Covid Time Capsule

Hello everyone, this week’s writing challenge has a living history/ P.S.H.E focus.

 We are all making the best of a very difficult situation at the moment under lockdown. But ,we can try to remember that this period of time is actually living history and we are all part of it, so we should try to record it in some way.

Your work could be looked at by other children, who will study this period in history, during the next 100 years. Isn’t that an exciting thought?! 

The writing challenge is:

Write a letter to your future self about life during lockdown, try to include factual, historically accurate information about what has happened during this pandemic. But more importantly, try to put a big emphasis on writing about any positives or fun, family activities that you have done that are different or unusual to what you would have done before. What have you enjoyed doing that has surprised you? What have you discovered about yourself and your resilience?

Also attached is a Covid Time capsule pack, that you can print fill in and keep for you and your family to look back on in years to come. Maybe if you don’t have a printer, you could still copy the activities onto paper. Keep these safe and one day they will be a reminder of this time for you and your family.

Looking forward to reading all about your activities.

Ms Patterson

WB: 18th Maths 2020

Maths Challenge -End of COVID street party

This week’s maths challenge links to the COVID times capsule. You need to plan your very own celebration street party.

 

- What would you need to buy? (food, drinks, balloons, banners, party accessories)

- Which suppliers have the best price? Cheapest?

- How much would it cost for the street party in total?

- What would it cost neighbours individually?

-Entrance cost? 

 

Send in your examples to show your teachers - teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk

DT Challenge

So, we have been at home for several weeks now, staying safe. You will have played many games but the fifth game of Monopoly, that will never finish, seems like a boring prospect.

Therefore, this week’s challenge is to research, design and make your own board game!

You will need to follow the research -> design -> make processes.

Firstly, it may be helpful to gather some useful bits and bobs from around your house, such as;

  • Paper

  • Colouring pens/pencils

  • Cardboard

  • Ruler

  • Glue

  • Decorative items, i.e. pom poms, glitter, stickers

Then you will need to research other board games to gather together ideas of what you like and what you don’t like. Think carefully about features that you will want to include in your game. You won’t be able to make a good game by heading straight to the design stage.

Then start planning your board game. Use the templates provided below to help you out.

Once you have a firm idea of what you want to achieve, then start making. It will probably take you a day or two to accomplish the first two stages. Then another day at least to make. Be critical and change your design as you go. That’s fine. Most importantly have fun.

Finally, test out your game with other members of your house. Email your photos of your final product to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk

We look forward to your creations!

Update from Miss Davey- 11/05/20

 

Hello 4-2!

I have been really missing our class, but seeing the amazing work that got sent in last week really cheered me up! Thank you very much to Luke G, Imogen, Josh R and Josh H for their amazing VE day work. It was such high quality work, I was delighted. Lots work got tweeted on the school twitter page, so make sure your parents have had a look.

 

Lots of children have been accessing the online learning (my maths, education city, TTRS etc)  so thank you again for that! laughShout outs to Caleb, Josh H, Darci, Josh R and Luke G for their really high scores on My Maths and Education City. laugh

yesWell done to Oscar for beating me in the TTRS challenge again! I've set another one up for you this weekyes

I've added more activities to education  city for this week, and their are writing,  maths and art challenges for you to have a go at below.

 

Keep sending me your work  - I love seeing it.

Writing Challenge 5

 

This week's writing challenge will require a little bit research so that you can write a biography of the artist studied in your year group.  The year 4 artist is Andy Warhol.

 

Go online and do some research to find out key information about the artist.  Wikipedia is a good starting point for this. But remember that wikipedia isn't always 100% accurate, because sometimes people add made up information to the website! Click the link below for information and examples - 

https://www.ducksters.com/history/art/

 

I have included a list of features of a biography so look at this this while writing, but also while researching so that you are noting down the key events and information in the artist's life.  Don't just copy and paste from websites because your work won't make sense.  Make notes and then use your wonderful writing talent to turn the notes into a fabulous biography.  Also included is an example of a biography on Roald Dahl so that you have an idea of what a finished biography should look like. 

 

Take your time with this challenge and remember our writing process; pre-write (notes) > draft > revise > edit > publish.

 

Have a go and send your biography to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk.  Make sure you include your teacher's name in the subject bar.

 

Good luck and have fun!

Challenges for Week Beginning 4th May – VE Day!

This Friday, 8th May, is the 75th anniversary of VE (Victory in Europe) Day. This marks the day when World War 2 fighting in Europe came to an end. It was a day of great celebration in Britain, towards the end of the Second World War. The challenges this week are all themed around VE day – there are lots of different challenges for you to have a go at.

Friday 8th May is a Bank Holiday. Usually, the May Bank Holiday in on the first Monday in May. This year, it has been moved to Friday 8th May to mark this important day in British History. Lots of the celebrations that were due to happen have been postponed until later in the year – but there are still ways that we can celebrate VE at home, some of which are with your challenges below.

Everyone is encouraged to join in with “The Nation’s Toast” to the heroes of World War Two at 3pm on Friday 8th. Tweet your pictures to school, using #VEday75 .

https://www.veday75.org/get-involved/nations-toast/

 

The Royal British Legion are also asking for 2 minutes silence at 11amto remember and reflect upon the sacrifices made by many.

https://www.veday75.org/

Writing Challenge 4

Put yourself in the shoes of a child in VE day and have a go at writing a diary entry, explaining the celebrations that took place. Was there a street party outside your house? Did you listen to King George and Winston Churchill on the wireless? Perhaps your Mum danced to a Dame Vera Lynn song? Use the BBC video above to help to give you ideas. We can’t wait to see your diary entry!

 

Maths Challenge – Can you be a Cryptographer?

Code Breaking was essential to victory in World War Two. Code Breaking is also known as Cryptography. Have a go at finding out some facts about the second world war using cryptography on the worksheets below.

Geography – Find the countries

Can you identify the countries involved in the Second World War and colour them to show whether they were Allies (fighting with Britain) or Axes (fighting with Nazi Germany)?

DT and Art Activities

 

Bunting

Bletchley Park is where lots of cryptography took place and was crucial to find out information about German attacks and to the Allied Forces’ victory. Bletchley Park Museum is encouraging families to design and make bunting – using whatever paper and material you have. They want you to use red, white and blue to create the bunting and decorate your house – then tweet it to them using #BuntingForBletchley Don’t forget to tweet school too!

 

Tea Party

Celebrate VE day with a tea party, like they had in 1945. You could design (and even make and eat) a 1940’s party menu. Triangle sandwiches anyone? Don’t forget to send us your pictures.

 

Make a suitcase

Many children were moved from busy cities to live with adults in the countryside. They left their homes and their parents behind so that they would be more protected from the German bombs. What would an evacuee’s suitcase look like? What would they take with them? How is it different to what we would take in our suitcases today?

Update from Miss Davey 27/04/20

Summer Term: Art Topics

 

At the Pantomime

 

To begin this topic, have a go at a Kahoot quiz to see what you already know about pantomimes!

Activity 1:

 

One of the most important aspects of designing a pantomime production is the costumes. Costumes help the audience to understand what the character is like.

 

Your task is to create a labelled design of your own costume for a pantomime character/s using the outlines provided. You might choose to design a costume for a pantomime dame, hero, or a baddy! I have included a bank of character costumes that you may wish to use for inspiration.

enlightenedThink about - What is it about the costume that makes the character identifiable? (e.g. colours, motifs, etc).

 

To create your design, you can use pencils, felts and collage materials such as tissue paper, sequins and coloured paper. Be as creative as you can!

 

Remember to submit your designs to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk and make sure you include your teacher’s name in the subject bar.

 

I can’t wait to see your designs!

Writing Challenge 3

 

This week's writing challenge will require you to tap into your poetic minds and come up with some stanzas of poetry about someone you regard as a superhero. 

 

Tuesday 28th of April is World Superhero Day and it gives us the opportunity to celebrate the people in our lives who we think are superheroes.  This isn't time to heap praise on sports stars, pop stars or movie stars; we want your poem to be about someone you know or, at least about someone who isn't famous.  You could choose a member of your family, a teacher, a doctor, a nurse, a lollipop man, a fireman or anyone who you think is a role model.  As actor Ben Affleck says, "A hero can be anyone even a person doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulder to let him know that everything is going to be ok."  

 

Your poem could be a few simple stanzas, it could be an acrostic or a shape poem, it could be a haiku or a limerick; it's up to you.  Try to incorporate some of the following:- alliteration, figurative language, similes, metaphors or personification.  Try to make it rhyme but don't worry if it doesn't rhyme, not all poems do. 

 

Have a look at this as an example of an opening stanza...

Pretty as a picture,

Bubbly as an aero,

My dear mum is really cool,

She is a superhero.

 

Have a go and submit your poem to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk.  Make sure you include your teacher's name in the subject bar.

 

Good luck and have fun!

Reading and Comprehension - W/c 27/04/20

Science - w/c 27/04/20

 

On my walk this morning, I saw something quite rare in Britain. I saw a pair of black swans! These swans haven't always lived in Britain - unlike White Swans. Black Swans have been brought over from other countries, for example Australia, and kept in zoos and wildlife parks. The ones we see in the UK today have usually escaped from these places, although there are some pairs which are wild and free! For your science work this week, can you discover the food chain of a swan? There are activities on Education City to help you with food chains and you can research what they eat. You could even make a poster or story up about them and send it to me!

 

Science Challenge

Updated! Human body quiz and further challenges coming.

Go to the science page below to see more examples and videos.

Email your responses to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk or Tweet them. Good luck!

WB: 27th April 2020 - Maths Challenge

St George’s Day 

 

The 23rd of April is the day we celebrate St George – the Patron Saint of England. You’ll recognise the story of George and the Dragon, but here is a link to a video of the legend for you to refresh your memory!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RqBn08RywaE

Did you know that St George wasn’t English? He was actually born in Turkey – but his bravery, heroism and gallantry were seen as qualities which were “English”, so he became the Saint of England. Find out more facts about St George here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/17816642

 

Creative Arts- Design a Dragon

What do you think that the dragon St George defeated looked like? Was he bright orange? Did he breathe scorching, purple flames? Were his claws as sharp as knives? Design your dragon and send us a picture using the teacher email address or twitter. You could draw, write a description or even make your dragon! Let  your imagination run wild; we can’t wait to see what you come up with.

 

Maths -

Below, you’ll find a link to a maths mystery booklet – linked to St George- for you to print out and solve.

Update from Miss Davey 20/04/20

Hi 4-2,

I hope that you’ve had a nice Easter, enjoyed some Easter Eggs (but not too much chocolate) and managed to enjoy some of lovely sunshine outside. I’ve been going for my daily walks – I’m waiting to see if the ducks in the lake near my house will have any ducklings! If there are some then I will take pictures to show you (you know how much I like talking about animals with you).

 

Online Learning

Comprehension activities week beginning 20th April:

Writing Challenge 2 - week beginning 20/04/20

 

It's time to use up all the chocolate that you've got for Easter with our second writing challenge.  This challenge is all about writing instructions.  You'll need some adult help with this one so get your mum, dad or older brother or sister to help you.  We want you to melt down your chocolate and use it to make some chocolate desserts or treats.  You could make rice crispie cakes, brownies, a chocolate cake or even some profiteroles; it's up to you!  We want you to record your steps as you go along and turn these steps into a sequenced set of instructions. 

 

I've attached a checklist for writing instructions as well as a template you may wish to use to guide you as you go.  In addition to the checklist, why not add an introductory statement with a rhetorical question.  For example, Are you fed up looking at Easter eggs?  Do you just wish they'd disappear?  Just follow this recipe and you could...  Also, at the end you could include a warning, for example, Please allow the mixture to cool before...  It's important that you use the imperative form of the verb such as mix, whisk, beat, pour etc

 

Have a go and submit your instructions and a picture of your finished product to teacher@stceciliascjs.co.uk and include your teacher's name in the subject bar.

 

I can't wait to see what you come up with.

I hope you are all doing well, that you are looking after yourselves and your families. The weather has been lovely the past week, so I hope you managed to get outside to play or go for a walk (The government says we can leave the house for one form of exercise a day, don't forget!).

Welcome to Year 4 - 2!

Hello 4-2!

We've settled in to our new classroom and are learning to be responsible, caring learners in our new space. We swap seats every Monday, so that we we get to sit next to new talk partners and work with different people. This will help us as we grow older, as we have to work with and talk to different people all the time as we grow up. 

 

Remember to read every day (you need 4 signatures in a week to get a Gold Star) and don't forget to bring in your homework (English is due in on Wednesday and Maths is due in on Fridays; unless I tell you otherwise!). Our spelling test is on a Tuesday each week. 

 

Our PE kit days at the moment are Monday and Friday - but these may change according to the weather and visitors to our school who need the hall. Please have your PE kit in school EVERY DAY. It's a good idea to bring it in on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday, to be on the safe side. 

 

Have you seen the Kids' Zone? Play games, and visit some cool websites. You can vote for your favourites! 

 

Don't forget that Year 4 have a times table test in the Summer Term. To practise, you can use the link below!

https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check

 

 

Remember, the school gates open at 8.40 and you should be in class, ready for the register at 8.50. See you bright and early every morning!!
