Hi Class 4!

There are a couple of activities attached above for you to complete today - a comprehension activity about Beowulf and some bullets points work linked to our learning earlier in the week.  Tomorrow is our maths revisit day in school, so this might be a good time for you to complete the homework for this week from your CGP books if you have them.  Don't worry if you haven't got yours yet - they are waiting in school for you when you return! I have also assigned you some activities on Classroom Secrets Kids to complete to revise some of our learning in maths and SPaG- please let me know if you are unsure of your password or are struggling to access these!  You could also use the time today to continue to work on your 'Ice Matters' booklet or to complete any unfinished work.  Have fun! I am looking forward to seeing most of you back in school next week! Mrs Bennett

English:  Please use the planning that you produced yesterday to write your newspaper report about how Beowulf defeated Grendel.  I would love it if you could email some of your finished work to me so that I can share it with the Class 4 children in school.  Year 6 children - you also have spelling and handwriting work to complete today.

You can also complete any unfinished work on your 'Ice Matters' booklet - some of you have already shared some lovely work with me linked to this project!

Tuesday: Hello Class 4!! I hope that you are all ok - we are really missing you in school. Please feel free to email us to say hello if you would like to!

The resources for your work today can be found above.

Maths: Please select the worksheet for your year group and use the link at the top of the page to find the video with the same title as your worksheet.

English: In school today we will be reviewing the story of Beowulf. We will be talking about how Beowulf defeated Grendel in Heorot Hall and will be thinking about how we could report this success to the people of Denmark.  We will be talking about the features of a newspaper report and will be planning our own report about Beowulf's success. You can use the PowerPoint and resources above to help you to think about newspaper report features and to start to plan your own report. We will be writing our reports on Wednesday in school, so save writing your actual report until then!  You can also continue to work on your 'Ice Matters' booklet if you have time today.

Year 5 Spelling: In school Year 5 will have a spellings focus session today and will complete their handwriting activity - these are attached above. Year 6 children will have this job to do tomorrow.

Science: Our Science lesson this afternoon will be our final one in this topic. We will be focusing on the lifecycle of a bird and will then be moving on to compare all of the lifecycles that we have learnt about.  Use the PowerPoint presentation to learn about the lifecycle of a bird. You could also watch this video to learn more about the different parts of an egg: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDv0Nnyb1WA

Once you have done this, write a paragraph to compare the lifecycles of a bird, mammal, amphibian, insect and plant.


Don't forget to get in touch if you have any questions or if you would like to share what you have been doing! Have a nice day! Mrs Bennett
