Dolphins - Year 4

Dolphins Class Page - update wb 22.02.21

Welcome back to what is going to be a very different, but exciting, half term!

 

We are going to be doing things a little differently again! Miss Rimes will be in the classroom with the children who are in school, and I will be running all our remote learning. This will be conducted via zoom, through Tapestry and here. You will be sent a letter about this separately.

 

There is a daily timetable for learning through zoom which I will post below. 

 

All lesson information and resources are available on Tapestry and here by 3pm the day before it is taught. 

 

If you have any questions or worries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I will help as best I can! This is all new for all of us, so you may have to forgive any teething problems! But if we all pull together, we'll get there!!!

 

Thanks for your continued support and stay safe.

What are we learning this year?

This week, our table of the week has been the 7 times table.

 

We have been chanting our 7s altogether. Try challenging your child at home to 7 times table questions!

We had our second orienteering lesson today! It was great! We learned how to hold maps so we could read them properly. We then got used to may symbols again with our jigsaws!

In DT this week we got the laptops out and experimented with changing fonts and creating and saving Word documents

We learned how to use Adobe Spark Video today, which was great. We used it to retell the start of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Today we had our first orienteering lesson! It was brilliant!

In science we are now learning about sound and how sound waves travel!

In science, we learned about the digestive system. We then created some role plays involving being a bit of food travelling through our bodies! It was great fun!

In music, we played along to Mama Mia!

In maths, we challenged each other to column addition and subtraction questions!

Playing alone to Mama Mia on the chime bars!

Here is us practicing our French by playing Simon Says...Tu mets mon pull!

Wolves in the Walls story map

We spent time researching information about wolves on the ipads, then uploading our findings onto a learning wall on Padlet.

As part of our English learning this week, we had some dictionary races! Mrs Shields would give us a word and we had to find its definition as quickly as we could!

***NOTICE FROM MRS SHIELDS***

 

I have had some parents over the last few days come to me concerned that their child is unable to go to the toilet in class. I just wanted to reassure you that this is not the case at all in Dolphins class. The children are given many opportunities to go to the toilet throughout the day and are encouraged to do so. Please be reassured that at no point will there be sanctions for this. Due to Covid restrictions, we are only allowed one child in the toilet at a time, so that might a moment when a child has to wait. If you have any worries regarding this, please do not hesitate to discuss this with me. Thank you for your support. Mrs Shields and Miss Johnson.

Our first Golden Award! Well done Millie!!!

Mama Mia - sign language!

Welcome Dolphins!

 

Welcome back to a new and different year! We are very excited to have you all back and can't wait to get on with our learning for the year. We have spent a lot of time over the Summer working out the best way for us all to work together and for everybody to be comfortable, so please if you have any worries, come and speak to me and I will do my best to help.

 

I am your teacher this year, Mrs Shields, and Miss Johnson will be in the class with us.

 

Our school day begins at 9am and finishes at 3.20pm.

 

PE will be on Thursdays. On PE days, please make sure you come to school in your PE kit - we won't be getting changed! Our first PE session for the year will be Thursday 17th September 2020, so you don't need to worry about it until then!

 

This term we have some VERY exciting things planned:

English - we will start by looking at the story of The Wolves in the Walls, with a view to creating our own narratives.

Maths - we will begin by looking at place value and of course looking at our times tables!

History - our history topic will be Ancient Greeks.

Science - we will cover a lot in science this term, starting with life cycles, then moving onto teeth and then the digestive system.

RE - we will be thinking of the kind of world Jesus would want.

 

Plus we will be covering MANY other things!

 

Our home learning this half term will take the form of Times Table Rockstars challenges and Spelling Shed challenges - more details will follow.

 

Reading records are due in on Fridays and will then be handed out again on Mondays. Reading books and records will all be handed out next week.

 

If you have any questions about anything at all, please don't hesitate to grab me at the start of the school day and I will help as much as I can.

 

Best wishes and I look forward to meeting you all in due course!

 

Mrs Shields
