JC3/4

Hey Y4 Home-Schoolers! :-)

 

Just to say - there is some new work on the 'Star' Year group pages up above, along with some maths fluency, grammar, comprehension and maths (which is linked to the white rose videos for week 10).

 

It's been fantastic welcoming so many children back into school - the 'new normal' is actually quite fun - but very busy!  So apologies that it's taken until today to get this week's work onto the page.  Well done though, for keeping up with it all, and producing some excellent work to boot!  I am still more than happy to look at your pictures and to have a 'gander' at some of the work you've been doing.

 

Missing you all lots, and looking forward to seeing you again in September (in our new year groups...eek!)

Keep in touch!

 

Mrs Ellison

Alice would like to share her fantastic power point presentation about the deer at her farm and deer park! Enjoy!

Have a look at Annabelle's FANTASTIC project on the history of Chipping Campden! Well done Annabelle! :-)

It's Half Term!

Well here we are - it's half term in lockdown!  I can't believe how quickly this half term has gone!  It hasn't stopped you lovely lot from working hard and producing some fantastic work - WOW!  I am blown away by the creativity shown when given a simple idea for a task.  It really does make my day to see what you've been up to, with photos or even just an email.

 

So below I have put a sample of some of the work you've sent me.  If you've done something amazing and haven't yet shown me, please do send it on and I will happily add it into the slideshow.

 

Have a fantastic, relaxing half- term and enjoy the beautiful weather we are having at the moment!  Please stay in touch - I will be looking at my emails still!

Week Beginning 18.5.20

Well - I hope you've all had a lovely weekend?  It was nice to see the sunshine, although I haven't been able to spend much time outside!  Very soon, my family and I will be moving house!  I am very excited, but my goodness - it's a lot of hard work, packing and getting everything ready!  I hope you've all enjoyed a bit of a break and are now looking forward to a bit more home-school?  One more week and it will be half term! :-) Keep going....you can do it!  Just remember how proud we all are of you. 

Keep in touch - send me your pictures and your work - let me know what you've been up to!

Week Beginning 11.5.20

 

Where does time go?  Here we are again - a new week, and a new set of learning resources!  I hope you all had a lovely long bank holiday weekend - did any of you manage a 'socially distanced' street party?  It was very quiet where I live, but I enjoyed a relaxing day watching it all happen on TV and eating scones while sipping tea in the sunny garden!

 

The topic for the next 2 weeks is based on the history of Chipping Campden - so I imagine some of you know more about this than me!  I have spent a lot of time researching on the internet and have found out so many interesting things!  Next time you are out and about as part of your daily exercise, perhaps you could have a look around you and see what 'history' you can spot?  Remember, good historians are always looking for evidence to support their ideas about the past!

 

I will also be sending out an email with the link to story time part 2 - Varjak Paw.  The Vipers questions are here on the website for you to download and have a go at answering!

 

So, have a lovely week - I look forward to hearing from you very soon.  Don't forget our email address: jc3@stjeb.school.

 

Take care - stay safe - have fun! :-)

As it's VE Day on Friday, and that is our topic for the week, I thought I'd make this space to add any exciting work you've been doing, or great websites or ideas for things you can do.  So please do let me know of anything you'd like to share, including pictures of the things you've been doing at home!

 

I'll start with a link to the bbc schools website which has 10 audio book episodes of one of my favourite books set during the war.  It's called Carrie's War and when I've read it to my classes before, they've absolutely loved it.  So although we're not together for me to share it with you, this is the next best thing!

 

The link is: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/english-ks1--ks2-carries-war/zk7mcqt

I hope you enjoy it as much as me!

Week beginning 4.5.20

 

Well, here we are - the beginning of a new week!  And so the lockdown continues - but we are much more used to it now, and I am so impressed and proud of everything you are all doing.  Strange has become the new 'normal'! :-D

 

So here is the work for this week.  I'm sure it hasn't escaped your notice that Friday is a bank holiday in celebration of VE day - a truly important historical event in the midst of the historical event in the making that we are living through ourselves.  So this week has been dedicated to all those men and women who fought for our freedom in World War 2.  It is a fascinating topic which I love, and I'm sure you will enjoy.  See the table below for a breakdown of learning for this week.  The main event though is the topic - I'd love you to have fun preparing for a VE day celebration of your own (see the topic grid!).  I am really looking forward to seeing photos of any celebrating that you decide to do - or hearing all about things that you've learned or enjoyed during the topic.

 

Please see your emails for a link to the Varjak Paw chapter that we are doing for reading comprehension this week.  I have bitten the bullet, and recorded myself reading Chapter 1 aloud for you to listen to.  The email contains a link which you can follow to see the video.

 

Missing you all lots - but it is so lovely to hear all that you are doing to stay safe and well with your families - and all the fun you are having with your learning!

 

Don't forget to email if you need anything - jc3@stjeb.school

  • Here is a link to a brilliant little film about World War 2 with a really clear and simple explanation about why the War happened and how it developed.  It puts the war in context on a time line of topics which the children study in school.  I definitely recommend a watch before beginning the tasks.  There is a task sheet you can download to go with the video if you’d like to as well.  The link is https://www.mrtdoeshistory.com/ve-day-key-stage-2
  • If you don’t want to watch the video or can’t, there is a power point which I have added to the documents, and a discussion sheet which you could do together before starting on the task sheet.

Pyjamarama Friday!!

 

Did you know, Friday 1st May is Pyjamarama Friday.  It is a reading for pleasure venture from the BookTrust. The idea is to spend the day in pyjamas, reading and taking part in reading activities, then finishing with a bedtime story.  Sounds like my kind of Friday!

 

I have added some activities below that you might enjoy.  So - enjoy Pyjamarama, and don't forget to send me some pictures!

 

Week Beginning 27.4.20

Hello!  I hope you are all back in the swing of this strange 'home-school' business!  It can be a bit tricky to get going, but if you're managing to do a bit each day - then you're doing great! 

Some of you have sent me some fantastic pictures of your work and it brings a big smile to my day to see how much FUN you are having with your learning!  Please send me an email to let me know how you're getting on, if you need any help or just want to chat!  I'd love to see some pictures of your work. 

I will add a picture update at the end of this week - hopefully including some of your writing you've been doing, or some of the creative projects linked with our topic on land use!

 

So here is your schedule for the week.  Remember - daily tasks are reading, spelling practise, handwriting, fluency grids and spag grids.  Try to log onto White Rose website and complete the lessons for the week - we are on week 2 (NOT Summer Term week 2).  Then use the week to complete the writing booklet and complete tasks from the topic grid.  There will be a new topic grid next week for a different topic....so watch this space!

 

Hope you are all ok - keeping safe and being GOOD! Missing you all - Mrs Ellison

Week Beginning 20.4.20

 

Hello everyone!

 

I hope you've all had a wonderful Easter break.    It's been lovely looking through all your pictures and seeing all the wonderful things that you've been up to.  There's certainly been a lot of creativity which has been great to see.

 

So here we are with the first week of the Summer Term and we are still having to complete our learning tasks at home!  I have put the things you will need below and a summary of everything to try and cover for the next week (possibly 2 weeks for some things).  Next week, there will be new fluency grids and comprehensions etc, but the topic work and the English booklets should last about 2 weeks (I would say, spend no more than an hour each day on these).  Don't forget, keep up with your handwriting practise, reading, tables and spelling.  Use the resources sent out in your learning packs at the beginning of the Lockdown to support you.

 

For maths, (and some of the English and topic work), I have linked to websites which have brilliant resources to help you.  You will need to watch the videos or play the games before you have a go at the work sheets.  On the White Rose website, you will also need to download the worksheet from the website (the answers are on there too).

 

I hope it is all self-explanatory, but if you have any problems, please email me at jc3@stjeb.school.  I will be logged on every day in the week so will be able to respond quickly.  I'd also love it if you could email me at the end of the week to let me know what you've completed and how you've got along.

 

Looking forward to hearning from you soon - safe safe and have fun!

Easter

 

Well we made it to Easter!  Well done everyone - we survived and have managed to keep on going with our learning - which is fantastic!  I hope you are all feeling well and keeping safe?

 

Reading fun!

I have signed our class up to a website called Epic which has some fantastic ebooks and audio books for free.  If you email me (jc3@stjeb.school), I can send you a link so you can use it as much as you want!

 

Also, if (like me) you love an audio book, amazon audible are doing free children's audio books at the moment, and you can listen online.  Check it out using this link:

 

https://stories.audible.com/start-listen

 

I am going to add some activity booklets that you can use in the coming weeks of the Easter holiday IF  YOU'D LIKE TO!  There is a lovely Easter Bingo choice mat with loads of fun projects.  I'd love to see who can complete the most bingo activities - perhaps we could have a competition?  There is also a booklet of maths activities and English too - with all the answers in a separate booklet so you can mark them afterwards!

 

Don't forget to keep emailing - I will be checking my emails over the next 2 weeks, so please get in touch!

Stay safe, keep well - have FUN! :-)

 

Thursday 2nd April

 

Wow!  Where did this week go? 

 

I must admit, I've been very busy this week as lots of you are sending me your work via email - which is AMAZING!  :-) I am loving looking at the things you've been doing and hearing all about the memories you've been making during these strange times!  If you haven't emailed me yet - please do.  I have TT Rockstar logins still to give out and like I say, it's so great to hear that you are ok.  The email address is jc3@stjeb.school

 

In between looking at your work, I've been trying to gather things together to make suggestions on here for you to access.  If you've found anything brilliant that we could share with everyone, let me know and I'll put it up on this page,

 

Here's a few I've found:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize - there's lots of clips and games on here.  It also looks like they are going to make home learning 'packs' in the future which is definitely going to be useful!

 

https://www.kidslingo.co.uk/live-video - I thought this looked interesting for anyone wanting to develop another language.  I think some of it is a paid resource, but there are some free things on there as well.

 

https://thereadingrealm.co.uk/ - there are live lessons on reading and writing on here which look quite good.

 

https://facts4life.org/work-for-home-learning/ - this looks a fab resource for health and wellbeing.  They are putting new learning mats on each week.  I will download some of these to put into our weekly lessons for after Easter.

 

https://www.rigb.org/families/experimental - really good science things you can do at home on this site!

 

https://www.outoftheark.co.uk/ootam-at-home/ - I love singing and we have some amazing singers at St James & Ebrington!  This link will get you singing and making music - fantastic and free!

 

That's it for now.  I will start putting up new fluency sheets etc later today and you can download one each week if you want to.  From Monday after the Easter break, I will be sending out a list of things I'd like you to do that week (like I gave you in your lesson pack.)

 

Take care - stay safe - have fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Monday 30th March

 

Good morning everyone!  I hope you've all had a lovely weekend - even if it has been at home!

Below you will see that I've put the answers for the reading comprehension so you can check your progress!  Perhaps you could 'red pen' any answers that need improving!

 

Thank you so much to everyone who sent me an email - it's wonderful to see all the fantastic work you're doing!  If you've not managed to send me an email yet, it would be great to hear from you.  I also have your TT Rockstar log ins to give you and I know you'll enjoy playing and learning your times tables at the same time!

 

Take care for now - watch this space for more additions!

Mrs Ellison smiley

Here are a few other great websites to have a look at:

 

 

https://www.scouts.org.uk/the-great-indoors/    - loads of fab activities including science experiments

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-3/  - There are some brilliant lessons here with a video to explain the maths, and then some questions so you can have a go.  It follows a similar approach to the one we use in class.  The current lessons are on fractions which would have been our next topic.

 

https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses/   - free audio stories from the every-popular world of David Walliams!  Definitely worth a listen!

 

Have fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wednesday 25th March

Good morning!  We have survived 2 whole days of home schooling!  How is it going?  Don't forget to email me on our class email:

 

JC3@stjeb.school

 

I am keen to hear from you all and to find out how you are getting along.

Today, I am going to add some times tables tests as we do in class.  I will put a test on for each of the tables, then you can test yourself on whichever one you are currently working on.  Don't forget Y4 - do the MTC practice on the URBrainy website.  I'll add a link for that as well:

 

https://urbrainy.com/mtc

 

I have set up a log in for each of you to access Times Tables Rock Stars which is a fantastic and fun website to help you with those massively important times tables.  You will however need to email me to get your login!

Here's the link:

 

https://play.ttrockstars.com/

 

That's it for now.  Don't forget to do your fluency grids, spag grids, handwriting, tables and reading each day - then choose a topic project, science question or comprehension.  Please let me know how you're doing and send me pictures of your work!  The class email is: JC3@stjeb.school

Good morning everyone!  Well this morning, we had a go at Joe Wicks' online PE lessons.  I highly recommend it.  You've probably already seen it, but here's a link just in case.  We all feel much more optimistic and full of energy!

Also, I am going to put on here a nice list of suggested activities to develop sketch book skills in art for Year 3 and 4.  You could have a go at one or two of these - I was planning on setting up sketch books next term so this will give you a good start (plus I know how much most of you love your art lessons!) :-)

 

I hope you are all keeping busy, but most of all safe!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to our virtual classroom!  As you know, you have your learning packs at home with things to keep you going over the next couple of weeks.  As promised, I have set up a class email account so that you can contact me with any problems, or even better, to show me some of the fantastic things you've been doing during your home learning!

 

So here is the address that you will need to use: JC3@stjeb.school

 

Check into the website each day - I will be putting things on the site for you to do so that we can keep on top of our learning.  Try to do the basics each day:

  • Maths and English fluency grids,
  • Reading and a task to go with it, 
  • Times tables and spelling practice. 
  • Also, don't forget Mathletics! 
  • Then maybe spend an hour on your topic - choose from the sheet I gave you initially, but I will put some other things up on here as well as time goes on.  Or, you could choose to do your comprehension (1 each week) or write a Stone Age story.  

 

I will upload the Year 3/4 and Y5/6 spelling lists today so that you have them for spelling practise.  It's a new thing for me - so bear with me! :-) 

 

Make sure you get plenty of fresh air and look after yourselves.  Email me on the above address if you have any problem.

16:20 - 26/09/2019 Malvern Trip: 

WOW! What a fantastic day. The children are still brimming with enthusiasm after an action packed day. They have just stopped for a full roast dinner and now heading out for a nighttime walk on the hills. Think the children will be looking forward to their beds tonight. 

 

 

08.20 - 26/09/2019 Malvern Trip:

They had a fantastic night - the boys were stars and even needed waking up in the morning! A hearty breakfast had, lunches made, a nerve racking dorm inspection completed and now they are already out doing activities!

 

17:30 - 25/09/2019 Malvern Trip:

Just arrived back to the Malvern site from a walk up the Beacon. They all had a great time, but are ready for their dinner. Pizza tonight- yum yum! 

 

13:30 - 25/09/19 Malvern Trip:

 

The Year Fours have arrived safely and are super excited about being there! They are settling down to lunch and then will be getting straight into the activities. 

 

 

 

 

 

A big welcome!

 

Welcome to our Year 3/4 class page where you will be able to keep track of our learning throughout the year. 

 

We've spent the last couple of weeks settling into a newly organised classroom with a brand new teacher and a fantastic new topic!  Based around the school theme of 'Water', we have started to look at the countries of Scandinavia and have already learned lots of geographical vocabulary including words such as 'peninsula', 'biome' and 'tundra'.  The children have carried out some research and created some fab postcards from the different biomes found in Scandinavia.  Watch this space for photos!

 

We've got stuck into some imaginative diary writing too - starting with a great picture book called 'Dear Teacher' by Amy Husband.  Our character (Michael) goes on lots of imagined adventures to avoid starting back to school in September.  The children have converted Michael's adventures into dairy recounts and are currently in the process of writing their own.  Once again - watch this space!  It should make for some entertaining reading!

 

Year 4 are off on their residential trip to Malvern next week.  We are all very excited - me included -  and we'll have lots of real life adventures to tell you about when we get back.
