This weeks, home learning timetable. I have tried to do it so that there is a maximum of two longer activities a day. Most days, only have one longer task. This should make it a little easier for you this week. We would like to see as many people at the Hive games on a Monday and Friday at 1pm. Please remember: 1) Post all activities on the portfolio. 2) Spelling Shed, Maths Shed and Times Table Rock Stars 'studio' are all available for your child to use for their basic skills too so it's not as full on for them. 3) Other activities, such as; baking, gardening, team-building, games, exploring, researching, chores, relaxation techniques - all count towards our 'extra task' Dojo points (in Team Toucans) and are important to build your child's knowledge for their future. Thanks, Miss Boden :-)

Good morning Team Toucans! This week's Special Mentions go to Elycia and Liam.

Well done and keep up the good work! smiley We are all really proud of you.

Home learning pack - Thursday 23rd April 2020. The activities for today are explained on the front cover of this pack. For Maths and Grammar today, there are 'teacher input' videos on Class Dojo . Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. I am hoping that by writing an instruction page and creating videos - it should be more straight forward for the children to complete. Thank you, Miss Boden :-)

Home learning pack - Wednesday 22nd April 2020. The activities for today are explained on the front cover of this pack. For Maths and Grammar today, there will be 'teacher input' videos on Class Dojo by 10am. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Home learning - Tuesday 21st April - Writing/Topic - Sound collector poem task - created by Miss Urbacz for Year 3 and 4 - however I would like you to use a picture from home. One where you went somewhere. If you can't find one, then use the ice-skating picture. You can think of your own structure for your verse however the structure is here if you need it; Grammar - word class; Reading - Life in the Indus Valley; Maths - Recognising tenths - decimals - teacher input is on Class Dojo from 9:30 am today.

I will be uploading daily activities for you to complete at home. If you don't have access to a printer, you will be able to complete the activities in your book. Also, I will be uploading work all of the work on the class page - on the school website. Any teacher input videos, will be on the Class Dojo page as the children now have their own logins to view. Thank you and keep safe, Miss Boden :-)

For today's (20th April) reading task - Can you complete this task on emphasis. The instructions are at the top of the page. Thank you, Miss Boden :-)

Don't forget Mrs Woolley is completing a Hive game today on Spelling Shed at 1 pm today (20th April)

Home learning - Maths - Monday 20th April 2020 This is a recap activity - we will start decimals from tomorrow. Please complete the following task. Remember: equivalent means the same so: 1/4 is the same as 2/8 1/4 is the same as 3/12 To get from 4 to 8, I multiplied by 2 so I have to multiply the top number (numerator) by 2. So use your times tables. If you find this tricky, draw shapes like in the first activity. Keep safe, Miss Boden:-)

Monday 20th April - Home learning - Writing / Topic

 

Good morning - I apologise. At the moment, the recording part of Class Dojo is not working so I will write a detailed description of what I would like you to do:

As we are starting a new topic - 'Can we write a number one hit?', we need to start by completing two tasks:

 

A creativity task: This is due in on Friday. Usually I give you a cover for inside your book. This time, I would like you to create your own. Make sure you have your title and some pictures. Be creative! Best presentation please. 

 

A topic task: this is to be done today.  We have completed this style of work several times this year so the children should not have any issues with this. On a new page they need to - write the subheadings:

 

What I know:             

What I think I know:         

Questions:

 

They need to write 4 things under What I know and What I think I know and ask 3 questions, 

All work is to be posted on their portfolio please. 

 

Thank you, 

Miss Boden :-)

Hi Team Toucans, 

 

Welcome back for a brand new topic! This term's topic is 'Can we write a number 1 hit?' I think we can :-). So, each day I will be uploading a video on Class Dojo with a new task. this means that you will still get your important 'teacher input'. There are going to be several tasks each day:

 

Exercise, Writing/Topic, Maths; Grammar, punctuation and spelling; and a reading challenge. 

 

This should keep us nice and busy whilst staying home and staying safe. 

 

Thank you 

 

Miss Boden :-)  

Hi Team Toucans, I hope you are all keeping well. During the Easter holidays, there will be an Easter Daily Challenge for you to have a go at. You can do it straight into your book or print it off if you can. If you have any questions, please message me on Class Dojo. Have fun spending time with your family and stay safe - Miss Boden
Every Friday, we will be choosing some children to give Special Mention certificates to. This week, I have chosen Kaleb, Karina and Olivia. Well done for doing extra work these last few weeks. Well done! Your certificates have been sent via Class Dojo.  Miss Boden :-)

Daily Easter Challenge - Friday 17th April 2020 - Today, I would like you to complete the two Maths challenges. For the multiplication activity, split up the number. So: 18 x 4 is 10 x 4 and 8 x 4 then add the answers. Keep safe, Miss Boden :-)

Daily Easter Challenge - Wednesday 15th April - For today's task, I would like you to complete the fronted adverbials worksheet.

Daily Easter Challenge - Tuesday 14th April 2020 - For today's Easter Challenge, I would like you to use the slides to complete the worksheets, There are several activities to do. Please choose one of the maps to complete. You do not need to complete all 3 maps. Choose the one appropriate for your level. Thank you, Miss Boden :-)

Over the next few weeks - see how many of these you can complete. Remember: the more you read, the further you will be in the RED TED prizes when we return.

Daily Easter Challenge - Thursday 9th April - As I know you all like jokes, I thought I would make the last one until Tuesday, a joke one. No, I did not write them Team Toucans, but they are as bad as mine. :-) Please link the tag line to the main part of the joke. Miss Boden
