Hello Y4 & all of your parents & carers!
Well, I really can't believe it's the final week of our time together ( so to speak!) Throughout lock down, I hope you have enjoyed the work I have given you. I have loved seeing not only your completed work, but all the new skills you have developed like baking, gardening,art & craft.
I am so sorry we didn't get the chance to have a whole year together but know you will be fabulous Y5s! Sending you all my very best wishes & hoping you have a wonderful Summer, Mrs T
.Parents/Carers please keep sending photos of work/activities to me.

Y4's Wonderful Home Learning!
There are a number of useful websites listed under Parents- Websites to support home learning. Some companies including Twinkl, White Rose Hub and Classroom Secrets have currently made their websites free to the public. These websites have many resources that are used to support the children with their learning in school.
During any period of school closure, please continue to read with your child daily, both books they may have brought home from school or any other reading materials you may have at home
Green indicates that this learning is essential and is part of a series of lessons which will impact on future learning. These take first priority. Amber indicates that these are tasks set in isolation. These should be completed but are not part of a series of lessons. Red indicates extension activities or additional challenges which are to be completed after all other learning.

Spelling list w/c 13.07.20
I have added a list of spellings for your child to focus on this week.
Writing- For your final week of Y4 writing, I have given you a variety of tasks.
Monday 13.07.20- To start the week, I have attached a sheet which gives you the chance to think about some of the positives to have come out of lock down. I know it has been a difficult time for us all, but try to reflect on some good things that have happened, new skills you have developed & things you have learnt. I have discovered some wonderful new walks, seen lots more wildlife & have appreciated my family & friends much more (especially when I haven't been able to see them)
Tuesday 14.07.20-Today, I would like you to think about your memories of Year 4; I know you don't have a whole year of school memories but hopefully you can think of a few things you enjoyed. You can even tell me about some things you enjoyed learning about at home.
♦ My favourite memories of Year 4 are: Our wonderful visit to The Deep ! I am so glad we had chance to experience a school trip together just before lock down.I still laugh when I remember telling a boy from the other school (in the same uniform as ours) to hurry up
♦ I loved teaching you about volcanoes and the weeks we spent making our papier mache ones.
♦ Going swimming to The Graves centre.
There are lots more memories but I'll see what you come up with.
Wednesday 15.07.20- We can't finish the year without an acrostic poem, so I've attached a template for one all about Year 4. I've also attached my attempt
Thursday 16.07.20-Today's task is to tell me about your hopes & dreams for the Summer holidays, they can be as realistic or as imaginative as you like! You might wish for sunny weather so you can have fun outside, maybe go on some days out or even a little holiday. I'm looking forward to having a few days on holiday at the seaside & having some fish & chips. I also hope I see some of you while I'm out & about in the Norton area.
Friday 17.07.20-The final task is to draw a self portrait of yourself ( see the PDF below) Add some information to the inner self side e.g I have drawn a cat because I love animals and have my own cat called Rio. There is a picture of a tennis racket to show that I am very sporty and enjoy being active.
Please find attached a resource to help your child to include fronted adverbials in their writing.The use of these is part of the English curriculum for Year 4 & the children (should) be able to explain what a fronted adverbial is.If you need clarification please email me
I have added a booklet which shows the cursive handwriting style taught in school which we practise during our handwriting lessons.
UPDATE-I have found another handwriting booklet that uses the same font so have attached that too.
