Welcome to the Class 4 School Closure page.
Welcome back to Summer 2, Week 1, Class4-tastic!
We hope that you are all well and that you have had a restful and fun half term.
This week we are delving into the filthy World of Mr and Mrs Twit as we read the start of ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl in English.
In Maths we will be revising multiplication. We found learning the formal strategy tricky in class so really concentrate hard, use the videos and be resilient rabbits!
There are some interesting and fun activities to do for topic this week. Try some Spanish addition, doodle like Twits illustrator Quentin Blake and grow a beard like Mr Twit!
Have a super week,
Stay safe and smiley.
Mrs Andrews & Ms Bandey
You will notice that, just like last week, we have planned 5 each of Maths, English, Spelling and Topic activities. You could choose to do one of each, each school day, or to focus on one area of learning per day – you and your families will be able to work out the best approach for you.
Whilst we are not expecting you to replicate school at home, it will be important that we all try to do some work each school day to keep our skills up.
Some of you have asked for a structure or timetable so, as your teachers, we suggest the following timings, which should help you organise your day:
|Times tables practice - use TTRS online, or the sheets on this website / in your booklet||at least 15 minutes|
|Spellings practice - see website section below / your booklet||at least 15 minutes|
|Reading - this could be a story book or a non-fiction book, or a newspaper / magazine like The Week Junior.||at least 30 minutes|
|Focussed English activity - see website section below / your booklet||at least 30 minutes|
|Focussed Maths activity - see website section below / your booklet||at least 30 minutes|
There are also some TOPIC ideas in this booklet that you could try out as independent work. These topic activities could even be done with a brother or sister (we’re sure Ron Reciprocity would help out too). Or, you may have an area of interest/ project you would like to investigate and organise yourself.
