Home learning pictures- updated 4th June

Look at the wonderful work we’ve been doing at home! Thank you for sending in your pictures via seesaw or the school email. It has been a real joy to see them. ☺️❀️

Update week beginning 11thtMay

 

Boys and girls we hope this finds you well.

Did you celebrate V.E. Day on Friday? Having studied World War 2 as one of our topics we hope you were able to tell your younger brothers and sisters what the celebration was all about.

By now you will know more than ever about minibeasts and you should be growing in confidence with X4 tables and even with division. Continue to practise your table facts.

This week we are encouraging you to be creative with some music activities and with writing an acrostic poem.

Again, we as your teachers, would love to hear your compositions and read your minibeast poems so please remember to record your music and keep a copy of your poem.

Keep up the good work!

Your P.4 teachers.

 

  1. World Around Us through music.

 ‘Grasshopper Hop’ song with animation.

Have a listen to the song.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zhpr87h

 Make a list of the bugs mentioned in it.

 Sing along with the song.

Try a rhythm game with Professor Allegro.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p01d6rx8

 

 Compose – create minibeast music

Now try composing your own minibeast music. You can use your recorder, a shaker (jar with rice in it), a drum (pot and wooden spoon) and don’t forget to use body and vocal sounds too e.g. clapping, clicking your fingers, tapping your knees, humming and buzzing.  

Can you represent a minibeast with a specific sound?  e.g. a drum beat for an army of marching ants or a clicking sound for a cricket.

Be as creative and inventive as you can.

                                                                          HAVE FUN!

 

      2.  Literacy - Write an Acrostic Poem

Using the word INSECT, MINIBEAST or the name of your favourite minibeast e.g. SNAIL, SPIDER or LADYBIRD write an acrostic poem

An example:-

Insect

I have 3 body parts – a head, thorax and abdomen

Never hurt me

Shiny, spotted ladybirds

Exoskeletons are found on grasshoppers, cockroaches, ants and bees

Cicadas can buzz, click and sing

Try finding me in your garden

Update 20th April

Hello P.4 boys and girls. Hope you are well and have been enjoying the sunny weather.  

Are you ready to do some fun activities alongside your work booklets from your learning pack?

We are going to post two additional activities for you to try each week. One will be related to our topic and the other will be either Numeracy or Literacy.

Our topic for term 3 is Minibeasts and we encourage you to find out as much as possible about these delightful creatures from books, on-line research, from investigating in your gardens to singing songs and designing from natural materials. There are endless learning possibilities. You could all become experts in finding and identifying these tiny ‘beasts’.

Remember to have a few photographs taken of you completing some activities. As your teachers we would love to see these when you are back in school again.

 

 

 

Activity 1

Activity 2

Week 1

What are Minibeasts?

Watch BBC Bitesize ‘What are minibeasts?’ clip.

Complete the ‘fill in the gaps’ activity and learn some great big words e.g. invertebrates and their meanings.

 

‘Go on a bug safari’ in your garden.

Look at the Minibeast Safari at

www.rspb.org.uk

Hunt for bugs and identify them.

Check the ID sheet. How many did you find?

A clean box and an old spoon can be used instead of a pooter.

 

Multiplying by 4.

Remember to try ‘Hit the Answer’ and ‘Hit the Question’ activities.

  2  4        3  2

  X  4        X  4

 

Happy Easter to all the lovely boys and girls in P4 Room 17! I hope this message finds you all well and enjoying the unexpected time at home with your family.

 

It has been a very strange time hasn’t it?! I hope you remember what I said on our last day- that this time should be an adventure and have very special memories for you as children. I know there was a lot of work in the packs you got home, but I hope you take time to get out into your gardens,  do exercise with Joe Wicks, enjoy books,  do some crafts, bake lovely buns or even help your grown ups at home with some chores!

 

I’ve been busier than ever with Samuel and Thomas. We’re having lots of fun with sand and water and have been trying out some simple crafts, which, of course, have included some bright rainbows for our window. Mr Hughes and I are working on a 1000 piece Roald Dahl jigsaw. You all know how much I love Roald Dahl! 

 

Mrs Greer says a big hello to you all too- she has been enjoying working in her garden with the weather being so good. She has also been spending time with baby lambs! Awww!

 

I miss you all very much and am praying that you stay well and safe.  Hopefully we’ll be back together very soon!

 

With love from Mrs Hughes x

We hope you enjoy looking through all our pictures this year and that you enjoy seeing all the hard work taking place in Room 17.
