White rabbits everybody!


Well here we are at the start of another new month. Time is passing very quickly and it's Friday again. I hope that you are all looking forward to the weekend and that you have some fun activities planned. I have decided to make bread on Saturday, so wish me luck!

I have been looking at your completed activities this week and have added comments on Purple Mash where ever possible.Thank you all for the effort and care that you are going to, to complete your work. Please remember to thank your parents for all the support they are providing and pass on my thanks too.

I hope you are enjoying collecting the rewards on Purple Mash. I have been looking at the TTRockstars scores, wow they are looking amazing. Well done everyone, please keep it going. I wish there was a way to feedback on that website but unfortunately there isn't. Rest assured, I am very pleased with the scores that I can see. 

Take care everybody and hope to see you all soon. Keep smiling.

Write a letter to one of your friends telling them about what you have been up to the past few weeks and what you would like to do when you are next able to meet up.

Active Learn book or your own book x15 minutes. I have checked your allocation and when you last visited the website so that you all should have enough books to read online.

Thursday 30th April 2020  'Happy Birthday Captain Tom Moore'

Hi everybody,

I hope that you are enjoying the week, my it seems to be going by quickly. I have been looking at your scores again and marking your work. It makes me happy to see how hard that you are all working. It must be strange doing all your work at home, but you are doing a fantastic job, just like Captain Tom who is an inspiration to us all.

Please don't forget capital letters when doing your writing tasks, to form your letters correctly and to check your punctuation and spelling. Do you remember, we talked about how important it was to read over your work when you have finished?  

Have a lovely day and keep smiling.

It's wonderful Wednesday Year 4!

Hope you are all well. Thank you for Tuesday's work. I have marked most of your online work and looked through your scores which are fabulous. Don't forget, if it is a game then you can replay it, if you want to have another go. Great to see lots of you scoring very high marks. 

There are some great pieces of work on the Electricity project already. It would be great to see if anyone could explain how electricity is produced.

Please keep up with your reading, it is really important, as is your writing. I will put the writing formation powerpoint at the bottom so that you can check how you are forming letters if you have time.

Thank you for my messages on Purple Mash, it's always good to hear from you all.

Take care, stay safe, have a lovely day.

Welcome to Tuesday everybody!

I can see from the amount of work that you have done yesterday that you are all working really hard. It was lovely to see such great scores. Thank you too for those of you who sent photos of your work. It is a real treat to see actual work rather than just online work. Please say a big thank you to your parents for sending those in. Please also tell them that I do not expect a photograph of every piece of work that you are doing, that would be very time consuming for your parents. It would be nice to keep receiving your work, so maybe you could send one special piece in each week? I will leave it up to you. 

I keep checking the TTRockstars webpage and the Active Learn webpage to see how you are getting along, a big thank you for the work that you are doing on those websites too. I have allocated some more books today to those of you who needed them.

I am keeping busy, like you, making sure that I have work ready for you and for when we go back to school. I am also trying to spend time outside, walking and getting some fresh air. Remember that it is important for you to have fun whilst you are at home as well as doing your school work. I miss you all, please stay safe and well.

Please look through both powerpoints before you start.  I would like you to focus on where electricity comes from, how it is produced and how we use it in the home, e.g. what we use it for. Don't worry about the bit that talks about, 'mains and stored electricty.'

Happy Monday Everybody,

Here we go with another week. I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine. The weeks are going by very quickly and before you know it school will be back to normal I hope. 

You are all doing a fabulous job working at home and you should be very proud of yourselves for all the super work that you are producing. Whenever I am asked how Year 4 are doing, I proudly say, 'they are amazing and are working very hard.' Thank you Year 4.

Take care and stay safe.
