Summer term week 11

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope you’re all well and keeping busy. I’m really sad that I’m not going to be seeing you all again before September. Please keep emailing me and sending what you’ve been up to and any work.

It’s week 11 on Oak Academy. The English is looking at poetry. I’d love to read some finished poems so please remember to email any that you’ve complete. This weeks Maths is patterns and problem solving. A few people have said that they are using BBC Bitesize instead of Oak Academy, that’s completely fine.

I’ve put a link below for a follow along lesson on you tube of how to draw a mountain landscape.

As always, please keep reading, I’ve put a couple of new things on Active Learn and keep going with TT Rockstars.

I hope you all have a great week and I’ll speak to you soon.

Summer term week 10

Good afternoon Ospreys,

I hope that you’re all keeping well. I have phoned round and managed to speak to most of you. It was really lovely chatting to you and getting to know what you’ve been up to. There are a couple of people who I tried phoning a few times and didn’t get through; please contact me if there’s anything that you’re concerned with or if you’d like to talk to me.

It’s week 10 on Oak Academy.

English this week is looking at diary entries and you’ll be writing your own entry by the end of the week. I’d love to read some of them once you’ve finished.

Maths is looking at number systems you already know and looking for patterns.

There are some great music lessons available too. I’ll put the link below.

Please continue with the Active Learn things and TT Rockstars. It sounds like lots of you are really nailing your times tables which is excellent! Keep it up.

Please remember to read every day. Let me know which books you’ve been reading and if you’d like any recommendations.

Take care and I’ll be in touch again next week.

 

Summer term week 9

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend and you’re keeping safe.

This week I would like you to continue with the Oak Academy learning for maths and English. The English is building up to writing an adventure story by the end of the week. I’d love to read some of these once they are completed. In Maths you’re looking at position and direction.

I was really impressed with the fantastic work that I received last week. A very big well done to those who are working so hard.

There are a couple of extra lessons that would be good to look at; a black lives matter one is on the PSHE section of Oak Academy. The lesson is around creating hope for the future. In Geography you will begin by studying the world’s different natural resources, defining what they are and studying what they are used for. You will finish by analysing in which countries these resources can be found.

A couple of people have said that they prefer the BBC Bitesize learning, which is completely fine. Please let me know if you’re struggling with anything though. Please continue with the Active Learn tasks, TT rockstars and reading every day.

It’s looking like it’s going to be a really good weather week, so get outside as much as you can. Why not have a go at some natural art – something similar to what we did with the Avengers logos in the Autumn term? Remember to send pictures of anything you create.

Have a lovely week.

Mrs Bratt

Summer term week 8

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope that you all had a lovely weekend. I’ve been receiving some excellent work from you and I’ve really enjoyed hearing what you’ve been up to. I’m still working my way round phone calls to you all so I hope to speak to you soon.

Please continue with Oak Academy Learning, we are on Week 8 of the lessons. There are still lots of activities on Active Learn and I’ve added a few extra challenges for you to have a go at.

If you get chance, I would really like you to have a go at some Science on Oak Academy all about adaptation. You will be looking at the conditions in different environments and the characteristics that animals have that help them to survive. You are then asked to design your own creatures that are adapted to an environment. I’d love to see them once you’ve completed them so please email me with your creatures. Here is the link to the lesson;

Summer term week 7

Hello Ospreys,

I hope you’re all keeping well. Its been really lovely to speak to some of you and I’ve been absolutely amazed by the work that has been emailed to me so far. Don’t worry if you haven’t heard from me yet as I’m working my way through you all and looking forward to catching up with everyone soon. Please feel free to email any work or activities that you’ve been up to.

Please continue with the Oak Academy learning and the activities on Active Learn and BBC Bitesize.

I’ve had a couple of emails now about spellings. I think the spelling list that I put on previously has now deleted so I’ll link it again below. If you’ve been through all of the term 3 spellings then please go back through all of the Year3/4 spellings list and make sure that you are confident with them all.

Summer term week 6

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope you’re all keeping well and making the most of this lovely weather. As you will be aware from the letter you received yesterday, I would like you to use the National Oak Academy for your learning this week. Please email me if you are having any problems navigating or working this. Remember to do your times tables on TT Rockstars and there are still lots of activities on Active Learn. There are a number of children who haven’t had a go at any of the Bug Club challenges on Active Learn so please remember that this is a really useful resource for you to use to develop your reading skills. I’d love to hear from you about what books you’ve been reading and anything else you’ve been up to so please feel free to email me and I’ll reply as soon as I can.

Take care,

Mrs Bratt

Summer term week 5

Good morning Ospreys,

I hope you’re all well and enjoying the warm weather.

I’ve added a few extra activities onto Active Learn for you to try. There are spelling and grammar activities as well as a maths challenge and please remember to use the reading ‘Bug Club’ section too.

Below is a link to a maths challenge for you to have a go at.

Below is a link to a sequence of science lessons on optics, mirrors and lights for you to have a go at.

To keep active, why not have a go at a twist on the classic hopscotch game and do this hands and feet version. You’ll need balance and coordination. Draw round your hands and feet on paper or do it with chalks outside.

Take care and I’ll be in touch again soon.

Summer week 3

Good afternoon Ospreys,

 

I hope you’re all well. I have added some more Maths and Grammar challenges to Active Learn for you to have a go at this week. I’m keeping an eye on what you’ve all done so well done those who have had a go. Don’t forget to keep going on TT Rock Stars.

 

If you’re wanting more structured lessons then have a look at White Rose Maths under ‘Home Learning’. There are some really good lessons on there. The National Academy also have some good English lessons. I’ll link them both below.

You could also have a look at the BBC Bitesize website for some other subjects. Why not try a RE or Science lesson?

I hope you’re all keeping safe and trying something new.

I’ll be in touch soon,

Summer week 2

Hi everyone,

I hope that you’re all keeping well. I’ve added some more challenges to Active Learn. A maths investigation and some spelling and grammar games.

Take a look at White Rose Maths home learning too. If you look at the Summer Term week 1 it’s fractions. We spent quite a lot of time last term on fractions so it would be really good revision.

Have you tried learning a new language? I’ve been learning some Spanish through Duolingo. There are also some Spanish lessons on the National Academy website.

I hope you’re all staying safe and active.

I’ll be in touch soon.
