Dear Year 4 parents,

I hope you are all keeping well.

Hello and welcome to week 14! I hope you enjoyed last week’s e-safety activities! Welcome to the last week of term. 

This week there are lots of challenges to challenge yourself by doing something you might not usually do - so I hope you enjoy them!!

The activities for this week are:

 1      Continue to practice your spellings from the lists given. Remember you can always use word pyramids to help you with your practicing! Also remember to have a go at the purple mash game. 

 2        Reading continues to be using education city games - there is a folder under homework called - reading. The children can choose an activity they like the look of and complete it.  Or read a book of your choice at home. 

3        Math activities - games on purple mash, TT rock stars plus other websites. 

 4      Corbett maths challenge - 5 a day. If these are too tricky then please have a look at the maths activities on Education City.

 5       Challenge yourself activities:

  •          Throw a ball into a bucket - see how many you can get in a row. 
  •          make an origami boat and see how it floats
  •          Throw a ball into the air and see how many claps you can do before catching it again.
  •          Make a fortune teller and tell someone’s fortune
  •          Make a paper airplane and measure how far it flies.

 I hope you enjoy these activities - send me lots of pictures so I cans see how you are all getting on. 

6        Make a board game based around your time at St Mary’s - think about the different ways players can go forwards and backwards.

 7        Watch the video about how Lego is made and write 5 facts that you have learnt.

 8        Watch the video about how bees make honey and create a poster to show how honey is made. 

 9         Write 5 things that you have enjoyed during Year 3, so I know the best parts to do with my new class and draw a picture. 

 10        Create a piece of artwork based around the summer - you could use paint, pens, pencils etc.

I would really love to see what you have been doing during the week so please send me lots of pictures: esimmonds@stmarysdorchester.dorset.sch.uk
