EASTER HOLIDAY

Hello Year 4,

First of all, a huge WELL DONE for doing so well in TT Rockstars and winning the battle! It was extremely close, but we did it! Well done to year 5 as well as they were great too. It was amazing to watch the scores going one way and then he other. As always, you have pulled together as a team and proved that you are a fantastic group of children! THANK YOU!!!

This is going to be the last update on our page for the next two weeks as we want you to have some rest from school work and spend more time with your families. Obviously, we can't leave you with nothing so we have decided to include some fun Easter activities (see the links below).

Please, feel free to catch up with any work you haven't finished. If you do something exciting, do share it with us via this link Upload Photo/Video form. One thing that you can keep updating though is your reading log.

Hello Year 4,

We have done the second week of our home learning. Just like the first week, you have all been amazing, producing fantastic pieces of work. Whether it's your instructions, poems, RE creations or anything else, all of your work put big smiles on our faces. You are becoming true stars of our online (as well as offline) world. Remember to keep posting any pictures or videos of whatever you've been doing to our Class Padlet wall. Here comes the last day of the Spring term.

 

Today's tasks:

Maths: TT ROCKSTARS - Battle Of The Bands - Year 4 vs Year 5!!!

  • Your Maths task today is very simple - we are challenging Year 5 in a times tables battle - TT Rockstars' Battle of The Bands. All you need to do is to play TT Rockstars today any time between 9.00am and 3.00pm and get as many correct answer as possible. You can play any game you want. If you play before 9.00am or after 3.00pm, your answer won't count towards the battle. 
    COME ON YEAR 4, we can win this!

Geography: Year 4 Geography Quiz

  • As you have probably noticed, we haven't covered any Geography yet. So today's task is to do our Year 4 Geography quiz (click on the link or go to Google Classroom). Most of the questions are related to the Geography lessons we have had in year 4 so far. You can get maximum of 20 points for all the correct answers. You will need to log in with your Google account to be able to do the quiz. 

 

Important Notice for Google Classroom

Please, keep checking your Google Classroom as sometimes we return your work for you to look at again or you might get an extra challenge.

Thank you.
