Good morning year 4!

I hope you have been able to catch a little bit of the sunshine and to let the warmth of the sun paint a smile on your face. It has been glorious outside and my sunflowers have been stretching up towards the sky. But it was my bean plant that won the race this week and grew the most. More pictures after the holidays.

This will be the last time that you are working form this platform because after half term we will start working on google classrooms. There'll be videos, quizzes and lots of other fun learning to be done. In the meantime, there is just one more bit of work before a relaxing holiday.

Have a wonderful week, please stay safe and look after yourselves.

Yours,

Good morning year 4!

It's Monday again and this is the last week before the half term holiday. 

You are doing fantastic and just need to keep going a tiny bit longer before you can have a well-deserved break.

As promised, I'll post some pictures of my growing plants. Please let me know what you think! Especially of those delicious, mouth-watering strawberries!

So, let's get started with the work.

Yours Mrs Gerer

Look at these sunflowers

I am astonished at how much this cucumber and bean plant have grown!

This tiny tomato plant is getting stronger every day.

Look at these tasty strawberries. With a bit of patience and sunshine they should be red in no time.

Good morning year 4 and happy Friday!

It's a very special day for someone today and that someone is..........

Tate...

Happy birthday Tate! I hope you have a wonderful day.

It was really lovely to catch up with most of you on Wednesday and Thursday. I was so impressed with how well all of you are doing and how motivated you all are, trying to complete the set work. You are all such superstars and I am very proud of you!

I promised to post some more of my plant pictures, but that might have to wait until Monday, because I am now starting to repot all the little seedlings. I will do this over the weekend and once it is all done I'll be ready to show you. It's very exciting and I wonder if you'll be able to spot how much they have grown. 

So now, here are your Friday tasks. Make sure you do something really nice over the weekend and don't forget to send me pictures of you having fun and of course also your work.

Yours,

At this point in the book, things are getting a little sad and thoughtful. Unfortunately, after a wonderful and fulfilled life, dedicated to tending his garden and the people he loved best, Lucy's grandad dies.This is a beautifully written chapter and describes Lucy's sadness very well. We have decided however, as this is a sensitive subject, we won't be planning any activities around it because we are not in class to discuss any worries or answer any questions that you might have. I am more than happy to email you the chapter if your adult emails to ask for it.

Today's chapter looks at Lucy's thoughts about Lob, now that Grandpa has gone.

Good morning year 4!

I hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend and caught a little sun on your daily walks.Every morning I listen to the birds singing and it fills my heart with joy. Although I miss all of your lovely smiling faces and those of my friends, this is one of the things that I am quite enjoying about lockdown. 

At the weekend I tried some new and exciting recipes and some of them turned out really well. (Others didn't, but I'll try again!) Also, later on this week I will hopefully speak to you all on the phone. I am really looking forward to this. 

If I still haven't received any of your work, please make sure you'll send me your best pieces of work in the next few days. 

Now on with the learning!

I hope you have had a good beginning of the week. My plants are very happy because of all the nourishing rain and many more of my seeds have germinated. All the snails have also noticed however and they are eagerly trying to demolish my tiny seedlings. If you have any ideas of how to protect them from the hungry garden pests, then let me know. I'd love to hear your ideas.

Thank you to all of you who have sent in some of your work, I look forward to receiving more as the week goes on.

Good morning year 4 and happy Wednesday!

Thank you to all of you who sent me such fantastic work. It was great to see how much effort you put into your learning, so keep it up.

I am also really looking forward to speaking to you and your parents on the phone tomorrow.

Here are your tasks for today.

English

There are a few parts to this lesson today.

You will need colours today as you will be drawing. Here we go.

1. Have a listen to the poem Ms Richardson is reading in the 'Poem' link below. It is on the first page of our story, just before chapter 1 and gives a good clue as to the setting of our story.

2. Have a listen to the poem again, but this time listen very carefully to all of the parts as you will now need to draw what you can hear. You can listen to it as many times as you need.

3. Once you have finished your drawing, take a piece of paper to one of the windows in your house and open up the window (you will need to get an adult to help you). You need to make a list of all the things you can hear when you close your eyes.

4. Have a look at 'Part 4 - Picture'. Can you use the poem and the list of things you just heard out of the window to label your drawing? Add as much description as you can. You may copy words from the poem and use them to label too.
