What a strange week it has been! I hope you are all doing okay and looking after each other.
While I've been at home, I've been doing all sorts. Mrs Iliffe pointed out that some holes on the fence in the garden looked like eyes and then handed me a paint pen... 30 minutes later and my artwork was complete! (Do NOT do anything like that without checking with an adult, I would have been in lots of trouble with Mrs Iliffe if I hadn't checked and rightly so!)
We also learned to play chess using my new chess set. We've never played it before really and there are lots of rules to remember. Have any of you done anything for the first time?
Together, we painted and put up a rainbow for our front window for children who are doing a 'rainbow hunt' in the village. We also joined in with the 'clap for the NHS' on Thursday evening which was very emotional and great to hear so many people in the village clapping (and cheering and even letting off fireworks) for those amazing people who are working so hard at the moment.
As well as those things, I've been working on getting some of these lessons and activities ready. Please use some of your time at home to work through them. Remember as they help you, that your grown-ups are working hard to keep you safe and happy at the moment, and you need to be mindful of our school motto Consider And Respect Everyone, as Jesus taught us.
Finally, keep taking pictures of what you're doing and writing down your thoughts. One day you'll be able to look back at them and remember this unique time!
Take care Year 4.
PS - Mildred says hello too. As you can see, she's not worried about things at all! #BeLikeMildred
Please follow this link to the White Rose Maths page where you can find free home learning lessons that follow the scheme we use in school.
Please complete one lesson per day. Watch the video before completing the activity. You can either print the activity off or complete it through discussion or on paper while the document is open on the screen.
Please complete one of these activities each day. Children will need an adult to read through the activity first and some children will need support during the activity so checking the whole activity beforehand, including the answers will be really helpful (and make it a bit easier for the adult supporting!)
