19th June 2020 Fabulous Friday


Hi everybody, it's Friday!! smiley

Another week almost gone. I hope that you have had a great week so far. Thank you so much for all your hard work. I feel so lucky to have you all in my class. You have been brilliant throughout this time at home. Thank you. 

Please make sure you look at the sharing page on Purple Mash, it is full of your fabulous work, as is the home learning page on this class page. We obviously have lots of talented artists.

I hope you all managed to watch the Duchess of Cornwall and listen to her assembly. It is well worth a look if you haven't seen it. She was talking about kindness and discussing all the kind acts that children and adults have made during the lockdown. I am sure that you have lots of examples that you can talk about when we get back. 

Have a lovely weekend and make sure you have a rest. Enjoy Father's Day if you are celebrating it!

Take care,

Mrs Smith Xheart

We will begin by looking at the Qur’an, a sacred book important to the Muslim faith. Muslim’s treat the Qur’an as Christians treat the Bible, with respect.

Watch the video that explains the origin of the Qur’an. Take down facts about the Qu’ran as you watch the video. https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p02mwjsw

Good morning my super class 4,

The week is passing very quickly and it will soon be the weekend again! smiley I know it seems a long time since we were together as a class, but slowly and surely life looks like it is getting back to normal in the outside world. Keep thinking positive thoughts and before you know it, we will all be back at school and you will be wishing you were back at home again! 

I hope that you are looking forward to Year 5, you are all going to be amazing! Please remember that I am very proud of how you have managed to complete all the tasks at home, that shows me how keen you are to do well.

We are getting through lots of work online and it will definitely help you to prepare for September.

Keep smiling and stay safe.

Thank you for all the work that you completed yesterday. It is good to see that you are already visiting Rockstars and Active Learn. Only four class members haven't yet logged on so far this week and it's only Tuesday. That really is great news.

Monday 15th June 2020


Good morning my lovely year 4!

Well, last week was very strange being in our classroom without you. It made me miss you even more, but I know that you are all doing really well and keeping busy which is important.

I have put some messages on Purple Mash for you to listen to if you would like to. If you have a green arrow it means that there is a recorded message. I have to say, it felt nice to be able to talk to you. The recordings are a little jumpy, so apologies, I did try re-recording the messages but it still wanted to miss out an occasional word! Still you should still be able to understand what I have said.

I'm back in school now until the end of term working with the key worker group of children but I will still look at your work, you will not be forgotten, I promise. 

Over the next few weeks, I will continue to move forward with the maths curriculum and set revision spellings and grammar challenges. Please try your best to complete as much as possible.

I hope you all have a super week, I miss you and I hope to see you soon.

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Smith X
