During these unusual times our teachers are thinking of new ways to connect with their classes, this is increasingly involving new technology! Please understand that our teachers are working hard to regularly set work for children online and to virtually monitor and possibly interact with the children. This may look slightly different for each class at the moment, as each teacher is navigating their own journey with this new technology. Therefore, we ask that you continue to be supportive during these unprecedented times and not necessarily expect instant replies to queries and understand that sometimes feedback may just be a "like or a smiley face"! If we all work together we will come through this stronger and with an increased sense of community! Happy learning!


Welcome to the Stingrays Class page

We are a Year 4 Class and Mrs Banks is our teacher.School is now closed for most children, until further notice.  I will post work on this page every week for your child to complete. Each child has received an orange home learning exercise book in which they can complete the activities. They have also received login details for Purple Mash and ReadTheory. When your child returns to school they can bring in their home learning book for me to look at. Children can also post stories, pictures, and videos of their work on ClassDojo, either in their portfolio or via a message for me to put on Class Story. 

 

This page will be updated weekly on Monday morning. 
I hope this is helpful to you and your child.

Dear parents and carers,

Thank you to all of you who participated in our alternative Sports Week. We hope you enjoyed it. Certificates to all the winners will be rewarded this week. 

I cannot believe we only have a few more weeks of school left before we break up for the summer holidays. I am so impressed by the dedication of all of you to keep up with learning. Below are the activities for the coming week. Please keep posting your work through ClassDojo.

Stay safe and have fun.

A new term, a new topic. This term you are going to learn about Roman Britain. From the first failed attempt to invade by Julius Caesar in 55BC (that's 2075 years ago) until the Romans left British people to fend for themselves (as the Empire was under attack and all the soldiers were needed to defend Rome) in 407 AD and the Anglo Saxons arrived. It is one of my favourite topics to teach and I hope we will have a chance to do some of this in school. You will find an overview of all the things we have planned for you to learn this term in the list of home learning activities for this week.

 

If you haven't already done so, please watch our 'See You Soon' video. We really are missing seeing all your smiley faces!

Have a great week, Mrs Banks.

Premier Sports, who provide our school PE provision with Mr Sayer each week,  are releasing a daily video at 3:30pm on their YouTube channel. The idea is that this can act as an after school home learning activity and replace the exercise children would normally get during extra-curricular clubs. Sessions will focus on activities including dance, football, fitness, gymnastics, basketball, tennis and yoga and more. So far they have filmed five weeks’ worth of content, and sessions include “Personal Best’ challenges so they can be completed again and again as children keep trying to improve.

Things to do:

I'm sure you have lots of activity ideas but I know as a parent these run out quickly!

Here are a few of my tried and tested activities that you might like to have a go at.

  • Make playdough (good for strengthening muscles which in turn helps to improve handwriting - watch Dough Disco)
  • Make Oobleck and find out about this weird Non - Newtonian Fluid 
  • Make slime
  • Bake cookies or cakes. Write up afterwards as a recount.
  • Painting and drawing 
  • Gardening, weeding, planting vegetable seeds, flower bulbs
  • Play board games and card games
  • Make up a new board game and card game. Write up the rules and explain it to your family.
  • Put on a talent show. Dress up, perfect a talent, song or skill. 
  • Do a crossword/ Wordsearch. You can even make up your won for others, using the Common Exception Words or Topic Words. 
  • Visit a museum. Many museums have opened their virtual doors, now the physical ones are closed. What surprised your most? What was your favourite thing to see or learn about?
