Thursday 28th May

     Hi year 4 . I hope that you have enjoyed the lovely weather over half term and I hope that by the next holiday things will be much better so that you can all go out.Mrs Coyle has a lovely birthday and Niamh and Lauren put up some great decorations and made her a lovely afternoon tea . I am just going to put some new work on for you ready for Monday and the start of a new half term.

Well done with all of last terms design work on your inventions - this next lot of work is also very creative as it is all linked to famous artists.

I have put some new R.E work on and we are adding new English , Art ,Science and spellings.There are 4 English lessons to write a story and a Vipers reading lesson this week. Please try to keep doing some reading , maths and times tables too . I am going to say goodbye now as its nearly time to go out for the 10th and final NHS clap- its hard to believe we have done it for so long. I have got another funny photo of James, the next doors cat ,to share with you - he thinks he is a plant !! Keep sharing your lovely photographs with us too please. 

   We love you and miss you Miss White and Mrs Coyle

Good morning 4W - thank you for the lovely work and photographs you have sent in again this week .We have got a display wall in school where we are putting up the photos you send as well as putting them on our school Facebook. Remember to do your spelling test today .There  are no spellings and  work that you have to do next week as it is half term but I will leave this weeks work on here so you can finish that if you want to.The other thing I am just going to put on are some fun STEM and art activities as I know a lot of you enjoyed these over Easter. The main thing I want you all to do over half term is keep smiling and being happy-have fun outside and enjoy the nice weather .

It is Mrs Coyles's "SPECIAL" birthday tomorrow - she will be 50 , she was supposed to be going on holiday and having a big party but because of the Virus she can't do that .I will wish her a happy birthday from all of you, from a safe distance, and maybe you would like to draw a picture  or send a photo in to our email so she gets to see it - that would really make her happy. 

Please remember to keep saying your Hail Mary during the month of May and well done to Kyrillos for making a beautiful prayer area in your home to honour Mary. Stay safe and enjoy half term .

Love Miss White & Mrs Coyle

Friday 15th May

    Good morning year 4. How are you all doing ? It has been really nice to see some of the work and fun things you have been doing . This week I have been really impressed by Oliver who made a great advert for his invention and well done Jack T for making your own literacy ladder , that made me really happy.

This morning I am planning and putting on next weeks literacy for you , some story writing now ,as you have done lots of non fiction in the last few weeks(there will be a Vipers reading task this week too ) .I want your story to be about a rainbow so I have made this weeks art and DT a rainbow task too - I cant wait to see what you come up with.

Our new RE topic starts Monday - I will leave the link on for the last one so if  you haven't finished it ,or still want it its there.

Please remember to learn and test your spellings too.

          SPECIAL TASK

It should have been the May procession on Sunday and May is the month of our lady so can you remember to say a hail Mary and it would be nice if you could have a go at making something to honour Mary - you could make a frame with a colouring of Mary in and decorate it with flowers or make a statue and put it next to a vase of flowers to make a little prayer area at home . I'll put a picture with a few ideas and I would be so happy to see any of yours as I will miss seeing all of our school doing the May procession this year - if you send pictures to my email of anything you make for Mary I will make sure the parishioners see them too on the church Facebook page.

Please remember to keep doing TT Rockstars . online reading (and Lexia if you do it ) hope you are all okay with your login and passwords.

 

I know that it feels like we have been at home for a long time now and some of you may be struggling a little bit - please try and do some of the work but pick the things you enjoy and feel motivated to do - its okay if you have found a different project that you are enjoying learning about , its okay not to do every little thing I put on . All I want is for you to have a go and to be happy and safe. Some days you may not feel like sitting writing so I've put a picture that shows other things you can do that are also learning and a picture of me doing some things to stay busy to inspire you. 

Have a good week - we miss you lots .

Love Miss White & Mrs Coyle xxx

     Hello again year 4 , just a quick message to say have a lovely Bank Holiday weekend . It  made me so happy to see Oliver has made the V.E day bunting I put on here - beautiful colouring too ! I've just made some bunting to put up outside my house and I've found my red ,white and blue clothes for tomorrow. I'm doing a quiz on Face time with my friends , its my turn to set the questions this week , have any of your families done quizzes?

Jasmine and Lucy the Power Points you made were brilliant , that's a great skill to have too. Alfie ,thank you for my letter , it made my day yesterday . Mrs Coyle and I have also enjoyed seeing the photographs that you sent to the school email when Mr Lobb has put them on Facebook - its amazing for us to hear that you are enjoying the work .

   I'm just going to put your English and D.T .work on for next week. Mrs Coyle will put spellings on too - remember to do your test . 

Have a lovely weekend and give my love to all of your family .

                                                 We miss you - Miss White & Mrs Coyle xx

Hi Year 4,

        I hope you are all well. It's been nice seeing some of your work . Please do not worry about any of the work if you are struggling or have days when you don't feel like it. It's hard doing it at home, I understand . I hear that some of you are enjoying lots of other things like baking , crafting , exercise and just playing and that is all great - all that matters right now is that you and your mums and dads are happy and safe - you are learning lots of new skills by doing these other activities too. I hope you are going to have ago at making a poster for your window for V.E. day - I found some photographs of the staff from when we dressed up for V.E .day a few years ago and thought they might make you smile .

Take care , stay safe and keep smiling , we love and miss you .

Miss White & Mrs Coyle. xx

Mr Bowley says hello - he's keeping fit with lots of gardening and dancing to the radio , bet that made you laugh !

Hi Year 4 ,

I hope you had another good week . It was nice to see some of your work on Facebook and on the emails. Mrs Coyle and myself want to say a MASSIVE THANK YOU to any of you who were in the video that was made for the teachers - it was so beautiful that it made us both cry.

I've just been out to do the clap for the NHS , Mrs Checkley lives over the road from me so its nice to see here each week , tonight we sang Happy Birthday to Captain Tom too . Did any of you make a card for him ? What an amazing man .

I hope you found all of your work for the new R.E topic - lots of nice tasks to do. Remember to do your spelling test too - Mrs Coyle is putting the new ones on.

In Topic -DT this week i want you to carry on making your model of your invention , (whichever one you chose from Wallace and Gromit's catalogue ) and then write an evaluation of it - what was good and why ? what would you do better if you made it again.

In English you are going to design a persuasive poster to advertise your invention and then write a television advert as though you are trying to sell it . I cant wait to see what you come up with .

Also this week I want you to do something for V.E day- ill put some ideas on .

Have a lovely weekend and stay safe .

Love Miss White and Mrs Coyle
