Class 4 Home Learning - 22nd May

Hello Class 4 and Happy Friday!

The activities this week have all focussed on exercise and being outside.

Eddie and I took Science outside yesterday and filmed our experiment. Please watch the clip below to see Science in action! Do you know what forces are at work here to make the rocket fly? You'll investigate these more next year but please post below or email if you know!

 

Toby has also been learning outside so thanks so much Toby for completing the art challenge I set yesterday - I love the face that you created from the stones and natural materials you gathered!

Today's activities focus on exercise so get ready to get active (outside of course)!

I try to exercise every day and get up early to work out before Eddie wakes up so I usually exercise in my sitting room and love doing yoga or Joe Wicks' YouTube videos. Earlier this week though, I had an audience as you can see from the photo below. A certain somebody kept taking over my workout mat!

As our focus is on being outside this week, I decided to head into the garden instead and did yoga outdoors and I loved it!

Today, I would like you to exercise outside, whether that's going for a walk, a bike ride, going on your scooter or a run - whatever you prefer! Please send in photos of your workouts - I'd love to see them!

Here are some examples of exercises that you might like to try. You can even do the Body Coach workouts outdoors if you're into the live sessions with Joe Wicks. He exercises wherever he is in the world, whether that's his sitting room, a hotel room, his garden, a beach or the top of a sky scraper!

Enjoy your exercise, whatever you decide to do - it always makes you feel better and, doing it outside, will give you an all important dose of Vitamin D which will boost your immune system and that's so important right now especially.

Have a wonderful half term too and please keep safe, well and happy.

Love Mrs Macdonald x

With these lovely outdoor images in mind, and the fact that today is Outdoor Classroom Day, today's activities focus on investigating the plant and wildlife in your garden or on your walk.

Class 4 Home Learning - 20th May

Good Morning Class 4,

I hope you're all keeping safe and well and enjoying the lovely warm weather.

Today's activities focus on being outdoors again which is so good for our wellbeing.

Eddie and I have been having great fun in the garden and it's been amazing to have that time together after our home learning and planning have been completed. Here's a little video to share all the amazing things we've been doing:

I would love you to share your photos of all you've been doing outside, whether that's exercise, enjoying nature, learning outdoors or simply having fun! After all, these are difficult times and it's so important not to stress about your learning: do what you can and, more importantly, enjoy your learning, stay happy and enjoy the time with your family.

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week so you have my permission to get outside and just enjoy yourself! Please do share what you get up to today and send your photos to the class email address. I can't wait to see them!

Have a wonderful day!

Love Mrs Macdonald

Year 4 Great Outdoors

It's been fantastic to hear what some of you have been up to in the great outdoors. 

Theo has shared a picture of himself last year on a bike ride, on the Monsal Trail, in the Peak District.

Mrs Mason’s Monday Morning Message

Good morning children. I do hope you and your families are all keeping well. I miss seeing each and every one of you in our school every day and especially your smiles and hearing you laugh, play and learn together on our playgrounds and in our classrooms.

You have probably heard on the news and from your parents that some of you will soon be able to start back to school and that lots of people are arguing about this! At the moment there is lots to talk about so that we can all feel safe but I will be writing to both you and your parents as soon as I have more details. Until I can do that I don’t want you to worry but to keep working hard at home and enjoying this lovely sunshine.

Due to the lovely weather our theme this week is  ‘All things Outdoors!’ We want you to spend as much time as possible learning outside. Your teachers have planned lots of exciting activities for you and your family to get involved in because we know that some of you learn far better when you are outdoors! Also this week it is ‘Mental Health Awareness Week’ and being outside, keeping fit and healthy also helps you to keep happy too!

During the past few weeks while we were only allowed out once a day for exercise I went to Shipley Park many times on my bike. It was so beautiful to hear the birds sing and watch the flowers grow, especially as it was so quiet while everyone was at home. I took lots of photographs to share with you ! I hope you enjoy looking at them on this week’s little film. See if you can spot somewhere you have been in our wonderful country park. I’m sure you will enjoy this week’s song too. Make sure you sing along …… just like in our Monday morning Assembly!

 

Class 4 Home Learning 15th May Update

Good Afternoon Class 4,

As it's the end of the school day now, I can say, "Happy weekend!" to you all!

Before the weekend, I thought I'd post a quick update with the additional photos I've been sent today.

They're from Theo and he's completed the VA Day word search that I set this morning and made the model spitfire so really well done to Theo!

Screenshot 2020-05-15 at 15.15.39

Theo, like many of you, has also made a scarecrow (with a difference!) for the Smalley festival which looks amazing!

Screenshot 2020-05-15 at 15.16.07

He's certainly been extremely busy as he's also completed the BBC Art lesson and printed a message in hieroglyphics. Can you tell what it says?

Screenshot 2020-05-16 at 13.43.03

Screenshot 2020-05-16 at 13.43.44

Emilia and her family have also been getting creative and have made these amazing scarecrows and super poster. Emilia, I love the message and design of your poster and your scarecrows are so apt! Really well done!

Screenshot 2020-05-16 at 13.42.21

I hope you all have a fun weekend and remember to keep sending in your photos and news as we love hearing from you :)

Take care, stay safe and enjoy your weekend.

Love Mrs Macdonald
