Monday 1st March 

Good morning everyone,

It's only 1 week to go until everyone is back - yay! Remember - the first day back (Monday 8th March) is an Alice in Wonderland day. If you would like to dress up, please do so.

In English, we are beginning our Alice in Wonderland topic. We are then learning about the features of a diary entry. There will be a live English lesson with Miss Parris at 9.30am.

In maths, we are looking at fractions again. Today, we are comparing and ordering fractions. Watch the pre-recorded lesson https://vimeo.com/500362215 and complete questions 1-4. There were a few problems with the 6 in 6 being on Forms so there is a PowerPoint version of them instead this week.

We have put several tasks onto one document so that you can work at your own pace this week to complete any unfinished work, prepare yourselves for coming back to school and to pull everything together. These will be uploaded over the weekend. Please get in touch with Miss Parris if you need any resources or supplies.

Take care,
4/5 Team

Friday 26th February 2021 

Good morning everyone,

We have live chats today, here:
9.30am - Live chat with Miss Parris (4/5P only)
11.15am - Live chat with Mrs Nute (4/5BN only)
1.30pm - Live chat with Miss Wright (4/5W only)


In English, it's time to write your poems up in neat - you might want to match the colour of your writing to your shape. There is a PowerPoint below as well.

In maths, we're continuing to learn about fractions. Year 4s are learning about fractions on a number line. Year 5s are learning about number sequences. There is a video on teams for this.

After this, it's Fit Friday! Get active in a way that you like best - running, dancing, walking, cycling, yoga or have a go at something from Arena here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCStjKlMICO-Em7zMJoHR3A

We then have some music for you. There is a powerpoint on teams which shows several tuned instruments and if you click on each of them, you can hear them being played. In the assignment, we would like you to learn a little bit about each of the instruments and include a picture (either drawn or copied and pasted, if you are able to do this.) Unfortunately, the file is too large to put on the blog so there is a PDF version instead. If you're unable to access teams, you might want to look on BBC Bitesize or YouTube for sounds of different instruments instead.

Make sure to also have a look at Mrs Spencer's recipe challenge as well here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QWCEBgmtnXU&feature=youtu.be

The blogs won't be ready before Monday afternoon so you can take this time to do your project if you want to.


Have a lovely weekend,
4/5 Team

Thursday 25th February 2021 

Hello year 4 and 5,

In English, it is time to start the first drafts of our poems. Remember, it is a shape poem so you will need to have a simple shape to use. Miss Wright is doing a live English lesson at 9.30am.

In maths, we're continuing to learn about fractions. Today we are counting in fractions and looking at improper fractions.

We also loved seeing your cooking creations a few weeks ago and have a new challenge for you! Showing your creativity, we would like you to make some food art. You might choose to make it out of fruit, decorate biscuits, create funny face pizza, and design animals for a snack. Use what you already have at home, discuss this with an adult, and see what you can come up with! I have attached some ideas to get your creative juices flowing.
1 Write the ingredients needed and method.
2 Cook/bake your chosen dish (try and take some photos of you doing this).
3 Take a photograph of your final creation.

There is also a PSHE assignment below, along with a PowerPoint. Today we are focusing on what has been positive about lockdown and looking at how quotes make us feel.

On the 8th March, we are having an Alice in Wonderland themed day. If the children would like to dress up for this, that would be lovely. All 4/5 classes will be having a 'Mad Hatter Tea Party' on this day.

For the party, children might want to bring in bunting, decorations and objects related to Alice in Wonderland. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that anything brought in won't get damaged so please don't bring in anything valuable. One of the English lessons next week will be dedicated to preparing for the tea party.

Have fun,
4/5 Team

Good morning everyone,

In English, we're continuing to learn about shape poems. Today we are planning our poems.

In maths, we are looking at proper and improper fractions. Mrs Bartlett is doing a live maths lesson at 9.30am.

After this, we have art. We are focusing on painting/drawing on textiles. Have a look at the pre-recorded PowerPoint below for more detail.

There is also a French assignment below to do. Follow the link to watch the lesson and complete the activity sheet: https://classroom.thenational.academy/lessons/saying-your-nationality-crup6d

There are also two stories attached for children returning to school. One is for children who have been at home and one is for children at school about their friends returning. It would be good to share this with children so that they can read this each day before 8th March. It is especially good if children are feeling worried about returning to school full time.

Take care,
4/5 Team

After this, there is a prerecorded music lesson below. This time, you are researching a famous composer from history. You can present this in any way you want to - PowerPoint/Keynote, poster, video, song, written profile or any other way you can think of. Be creative!

Look after yourselves and enjoy the half term break,

Thursday 11th February 2021 

Good morning everyone,

It's only 2 more days to go! Keep up your hard work - we love seeing what you've been getting up to either in school, on teams or from work you've handed into us.

Please continue to do your taskmaster challenges. We had lots of fun doing the egg challenge in school yesterday. Also continue to do your reading and times tables practice. 

In English, we're continuing to do SPaG activities. Today, we're learning about the past tense.

In maths, watch the pre-recorded video and have fun playing this game! I have attched a dice net if you don't have one at home or you would like to make one. It would be lovely if you could send in some photos. Here is the link to the quiz -https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/zb8wqp3

We also have science - today we are learning about sound and making telephones. You will need two plastic cups/clean tins, a long piece of string and scissors or something to make holes in the cups/tin with. There is a live science lesson at 9.30am with Miss Wright.

There is also a pre-recorded PSHE lesson attached, focusing on kindness. There is a video on teams to watch and questions to answer about this. If you can't access the video, there is a link here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nwAYpLVyeFU We're also thinking about how we can look after ourselves.

If you haven't had a go at French yet, please do this as well - the work is on Monday's blog page and on teams.

Take care,
4/5 Team
