Some of you have been asking whether you could do your own project whilst schools are shut. If you would like to do a project, we're happy for you to do so on a subject of your choice. This could be on nature, sport, science, geography, history or something else. Your project might be inventing a game or making a complex model. A teacher from another school in our trust has made a 15 minute tutorial on how to make a game using scratch. The link for this is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjixcr0lS7o
This is optional and if you do choose to do a project, we would love for you to share it with us when we're back in school. As it's optional, we won't be putting this assignment on teams.
Have fun and take care,
It's Friday - yay! You've all been working so hard and there is a celebration assembly on the Head's blog, where certificates will be announced.
There are also live chats on teams today:
9.30am - Live chat with Miss Parris (4/5P only)
9.30am - Live chat with Miss Wright (4/5W only)
11.15am - Live chat with Mrs Bartlett (4/5BN only)
In English, we're planning our stories set in Narnia. There is a PowerPoint and sheet down below, explaining how to do this and a plan to fill in if you need it. Some of you might want to draw up with your own plan instead though.
In maths, year 4s are dividing 3-digit numbers and year 5s are dividing with remainders. There are chilli challenges on teams and on Monday's blog if you're looking for a challenge.
After this, it's time for Fit Friday again! Mr Jones has been busy making exercise challenges and workouts for you so check out his YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-7V-62LGDAQouCDpZmui1g
We then have some science for you below. We are investigating how sound is affected by different materials. There is a PowerPoint and worksheet below. This week you are planning an investigation - which materials stop sound the best? For this, you need to design a pair of earmuffs to test different materials. Next week, you'll be testing the materials and writing up the results. If you were in school and have already done this, please go to Tuesday's blog page for the music assignment.
Have a lovely weekend.
Good morning everyone,
There is more guided reading below. We are continuing to focus on our story in English.
In English, we are creating a toolkit for what makes a good story together. Miss Wright is doing a live English lesson at 9.30am today.
In maths, we are doing something a bit different today. There is an investigation to do. We are looking at different numbers and 'always, sometimes or never' statements. Have a look at the attachments below or on teams for more information.
After this, we are learning all about the Pentecost. This was put onto teams early by accident so some of you might have done this already. There is a prerecorded lesson below along with an assignment. You need to look at the pictures and write about how the people are feeling in them, along with some other questions.
If you've done this already, you could practice your times tables, go for a walk, do some reading or practice a skill you want to get better at. Attached below is a fitness challenge for February that you might want to start early.
Good morning everyone,
I hope you're having a good week so far - keep sending us your brilliant work.
There is a guided reading task below. For this, we're continuing to read The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.
In English, we are looking at the character of the story. You need to think of descriptions for the characters and then write a short piece of the first time that character is introduced. There is an example on the prerecorded lesson below.
In maths, we are looking at multiplying and dividing numbers. We are especially looking at problem solving. Don't forget, to look at the videos on teams first or, if you can't access these, I've put the links for the videos down below. Mrs Bartlett is doing a live maths lesson at 9.30am today.
After this, there is an art lesson below. We are learning all about pop art and then you are having a go at making your own piece of pop art. Have a look at the different styles and play around with colours and styles. There is also an artist study for you to do.

In English, children are writing a description of the landscape of Narnia, using powerful adjectives and rich language. There are documents below for this. If you're unable to edit on the documents, you can write your descriptions on a piece of paper. You should write a detailed piece of work - more than just a few sentences. There is a live English lesson with Miss Parris at 9.30am. This will be on the team 'Year 4 and 5'.
After this, we are continuing to learn all about musical instruments. There is a pre-recorded music lesson below. The last few slides can be printed to write music down on or children can use lines on paper.
All the best,
Good morning everyone,
I hope you're all feeling refreshed after the weekend.
For children having work printed: The printer is broken so packs won't be ready today. We will let you know when they are ready.
We've got lots of things planned for this week, including some live lessons on teams. All the live lessons will be on the team 'Years 4 and 5' and all the informal chats for individual classes will be on that team for that class. For example, a 4/5P meeting would be in the 4/5P team. These are all the live lessons:

There is a pre-recorded PowerPoint below and a PDF version in case you can't open this. Over the course of the next couple of weeks, we will be building up to writing a story in Narnia. You might want to read the story as well.

Afterwards, we're learning all about music. This time we're beginning to learn about how music is recorded on paper. Your task is to record a simple piece of music on paper with 8 notes or more. If you have a musical instrument, you might want to have a go at playing this and sending it in to us.
