Our regular ZOOM meetings will now be every Friday 1-2pm. 

If the meeting 'time' ends just log back in and we'll carry on.  Mrs Smart and Mr George will host on Friday 10th July.  THIS WILL BE OUR LAST ZOOM MEETING. Bring pen and paper and we'll decide shortly which games we'll play!  

 

School is now closed for most pupils. See latest newsletter for details of who school will remain open for.   This page now has details of our HOME LEARNING work.  Make sure My Maths is up to date and get on TT Rockstars as much as possible.  Do lots of reading. 

Play board games and cards - these are rich in skills!  We've sent home the Viking game of Hnefatfal - instructions below.  Help with laundry, cooking and household chores - and get out and do some work in the garden.  Take time to spot birds in the garden and see if you get any regular visitors - you might even put some food out for them!

Do jigsaws, build a fort and camp out under the table.  Watch films together, paint, draw, sing, learn how to sew on a button!

We recognise that people will have different access to technology and different amount of adult support.  Do what you can, when you can and try not to worry!

Remember this is a stressful time for everyone so be patient and kind.  The most important thing is to enjoy your time together.  Nobody will learn anything if everyone is stressed!

Specific weekly activities are BELOW - do as much as you can manage.

We have a school subscription to Espresso which has loads of great resources:

My Maths - remember it's a good idea to do the "practice" task first before attempting the homework.  The first level login is "astwood" and password "cosine242"  Then use your own username which is 3 numbers and a password of 3 letters.  If you don't have this please ask! 

Ongoing times tables work should also be done on TT Rockstars Remember to practise in the 'garage' game but try to improve your RockStar Status in the 'studio' game.  The system is designed to be intuitive and will respond to your child's speed and accuracy to give a personalised experience.  Use the same username and password details as on my maths.

union jack VEtext

Step 1: Research What is VE Day? What happened on this day 75 years ago? See Newsround and BBC

Step 2: Invitations Decide who to invite to your VE Day celebration. Is your whole household going to get involved? Could you have a party with people through a video call? Once you’ve decided this you need to create invitations.

Step 3: Menu Decide what to eat at your special celebration and write a list. Are you going to make cheese sandwiches? Fruit salad? Flapjacks? If you can, follow a recipe with help from an adult. You could try Wartime Carrot cake  or the Potato and Cheese bake found on this Wartime Recipe page 

Step 4: Decorate Create decorations for your celebration. You could create paper chains, Union Jack bunting, special table mats and flags.

Step 5: Outfit Decide what clothes to wear for the special occasion. Draw a picture of your outfit. You could also draw a picture of some special people from 75 years ago such as Winston Churchill, King George VI and the brave soldiers who fought in the war.

Step 6: Activities Plan two enjoyable activities for the day. This could be whatever you choose! You could play jenga, decorate cakes, create a dance, have a singalong. You could play games like the children who celebrated VE Day 75 years ago such as cards, marbles, dice and jacks.

Step 7: Enjoy your party! Take 5 photos of your celebration.

Step 8: Report: Write a newspaper report about your event.  Include real photographs if you can, quotes from your family and an impressive headline! This can be typed electronically or written on paper with drawings.

Home Learning Week 5 (20th April)

1) The English work this week is to explore limericks! Find out how they work and then write your own family limerick. See example HERE from Mrs Smart and Mr George with a couple of special guests! You should be able to find out what a limerick is online and look at a few examples, but there are two good sites here at Poetry4kids and BBCbitesize.  

See if you can theme your limerick about what it’s like to stay at home at the moment. Try and get a positive feel and try and make it funny!  Get your family to help – often a team effort is the best and you can refine it together to really get the rhythm and pattern of the syllables to work. If you would like your finished work to feature in a YEAR 4 video on YouTube along with your friends’ videos then record it (you don’t need to read it by yourself – get the family involved if you need a bit of help) and email it to us by Sunday 26th April. ANY video we receive we’ll assume we have full permission to feature online. If you’d like one of the teachers to read yours for you then just send us the text and we’ll mention you when we read it – but it would be lovely to see you yourself!  In landscape is quicker for us to process - and as MP4 rather than Mov/Quicktime files!

9)  Keep up your daily exercise - There are loads of ideas online and some of ours are below in previous weeks.

10)  We've also put 3 spelling games/activites on below as a few people have asked for these!  And you know we like to please!   

 

Home learning weeks 3&4 (Easter) - Although we'd not usually want you to do too much work over Easter, we realise that if you're stuck at home it might be nice to do a few creative projects and fun Easter activities.  Also remember all the fun things we suggested at the top of this page.

Remember to check out the teacher stories page - new stories are added most days!

Fun Easter activities, including some French, are below.  Activities will be for BOTH weeks so there's no rush!

egg boxThe creative challenge for Easter is to make something imaginative out of an egg box. The best ones will not only look good but also have an interesting use or function. There are no creative limits nor any specific rules, just think of a fun idea and then make it look amazing! If you’re not an egg family then use any substitute as we’d like to be a vegan-friendly too! Send a photo of your finished model and do let us know what the idea is. If we get enough, we’ll make a YouTube video so please only send photos we have permission to use. It would be lovely to see your smiling faces with your model but you can just send photos of the models if you like.

Send these to us before Sunday 19th April. These videos are a lovely way for us to stay in touch with each other and to cheer each other up at this challenging time!

The challenge for the second week of Easter is to plan, cook and serve a meal for a family dinner party.  You can get siblings to help but no grown-ups allowed (ideally).  You'll need to choose what to eat, make some little menus, lay the table - perhaps with some little table decorations, prepare and serve the meal like a waiter or waitress might do and clear up after.  You might like to prepare a little musical entertainment or some after-dinner cabaret!  Make sure parents know if you're using anything dangerous - cooker, toaster, kettle - and DO STAY SAFE.  We're not asking for photos or proof for this one but do try and have some fun!  

 

We've also added a "Lockdown Bucket List" below - This is for you to keep working on until we come back to school - see how many things you can tick off!

Do remember to have a look at the teacher story page - there are new ones going on almost every day!

Imagine you’d looked out of your window this morning, into your garden or maybe to a nearby park, and imagine you’d seen a tiger yourself. What might he be doing? How might he be hidden in the bushes or trees? Do a drawing of what you might see – use whatever media you have at home.

Matt B, Wedding

We wanted something a little bit different for the entertainment at our drinks reception, and we'd heard great things about the Wax Lyricals.  We certainly weren't disappointed, and we received loads of great feedback from our wedding guests.  The boys' harmonies and range of songs were spot-on; they're a traditional barbershop singing group with a professional yet friendly approach, which helped us to add an extra touch of class to our special day.  We even tried our hand at having a little sing with them (with mixed results!) and invited them to stick around for a drink afterwards!  Great guys, and a great way to add an unusual musical twist to any occasion!
