 Mrs Moore and Mrs Black

 

Leap into learning!

 

Please find a slideshow of our lovely work under activities posted for this week.

 



🌈 Our year in P.4! 🏖

🌟 Our work for week beginning 15th June. We are stars. 🌟



 

 

Update week beginning 11th May

 

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.

 

Lesson 1. World Around Us through music.

 ‘Grasshopper Hop’ song with animation.

  1. Have a listen to the song.

   2. Make a list of the bugs mentioned in it.

   3. Sing along with the song.

 

   4.Try a rhythm game with Professor Allegro.

       Compose – create minibeast music

   5. 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!

 

     Lesson 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 Monday 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.

Hello boys and girls.

 

In recent days I have loved looking at the rainbows that the children from my neighbourhood have drawn or painted and placed in their windows. I am sure many of you have done that too. The rainbow reminds me of our weather word wall in Room 18 and of the hope we have for the future.

I am sure you are working your way through your school pack. For the next 2 weeks I encourage you to:-

 

Rest from school work and have lots of fun

Arrange an Easter egg hunt indoors for everyone

Indulge in a few Easter treats with your family

Netball, football, exercise with Joe Wicks

Baking, crafting, singing about Spring chicks!

Opportunities are there to be had and enjoy

With our very best wishes for a Happy Easter!

 

Stay safe and take care,

                        From Mrs Moore and Mrs Black xo.
