Good morning all,
You have made it to the end of the ‘school’ week! Well done! Have a lovely weekend :)

We are now on SUMMER TERM WEEK 6 (w/c 1st June May).
Friday's on white rose hub, are 'Challenge Friday's'. -
Summer Term Week 6 (w/c 1st June) - LESSON 5 'MATHS CHALLENGE'.
The most suitable challenges for us in year 4 are: 1,2,3,4, and 5. Have a go and see how you get on! Perhaps you could challenge a family member - first to get the answer wins a point!
The activity and answers are on the website for 'Challenge Friday' but I have also put the PDF of them below.
Focus theme: Water! (Part 1)
Two weeks of all things water! Marvel at magnificent waterfalls, take a stroll around some fabulous lakes, learn about the water cycle and enjoy some fabulous poetry.
When following links, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
1. Today you are going to write a poem using all that you have learnt this week so far about water. There are some examples of water poems below for you to read first: The River by CA Bowles, The Singing River by Ernestine Northover (scroll down the page to find the poem), The Cataract at Lodore by Robert Southey.
2. You can write your poem in any way that you like. Try to include some of the new words that you have explored this week. You might want to write a descriptive poem, describing a waterfall or the journey of a river. You could include similes, e.g. as powerful as a bull, metaphors e.g. the waterfall is a wall of diamonds crashing to the ground, personification, e.g. the river grabbed and tossed the rocks down her path. Present your poem neatly and illustrate it.
Every Friday, on your 'to do' folder on Purple Mash, I have set a quiz of a random mixture of the Year 3/4 spelling words that you need to know.
1. Please complete the quiz.
2. Write down the correct spelling of any that you get incorrect and learn them using the methods that you can remember from the booklet that we do in school. eg. rainbow colours, pyramids, word search, write them in pictures, draw shapes around them ect.
1. Please make sure you are reading at least 20 minutes daily - there are lots of free books to read online via EPIC (a free app) or the library service.
2. Complete an activity on read theory, classroom secrets or from your reading booklet.
This week, we are going to continue learning more about the Vikings.
I am sure you have all heard of Thor and Loki (Think Avengers!) Did you know they were Viking Gods?
Activity = Research Viking Gods and Goddesses.
Choose at least 4 and create a top trumps card for each for them. For ideas on what to include and how to set them out, Google 'Viking Top Trump Cards'.
Try to include:
- Their power
- What they are the God of
- Their strength
- Their intelligence
- How powerful they are
As a lot of us enjoy doing these, complete a 'Draw with Rob' of your choice.
