Hello Year 4 and 5,
The end of the school year is finally here! Although it does not feel like the normal end, I hope you can find the time to celebrate finishing another year of primary school. Both Mrs Randall and I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching you all and we hope you have the best summer you possibly can. There will be our normal ‘scrapbook challenge’ with a few added activities, if you do feel you want do some learning over the holidays.
I appreciate that lots of you have found this period difficult and you have done so well to manage it, whatever way that was for you. I hope you are all staying well and will enjoy your final week of ‘home learning’.
Again, I have added the Pie Corbett, talk for writing pack. If you would rather complete another activity for your English task this week, I would love you to write a letter to yourself reflecting on this period. Think about what you have enjoyed/ found difficult, if you have started a new hobby, what you are most looking forward to when we ‘go back to normal’. These letters will be interesting for you to keep for many years and look back at in the future.
This week, I will be giving you work on money. Many of these questions will require you to use addition and subtraction too, so I hope they are all manageable. I know we covered a few of these types of questions in an earlier pack but it is a useful topic to revisit regularly and not just in word problems.
Please remember you should regularly be practising your times tables, this has been particularly successful this year when using TTRockstars- which I will be setting up battles for you to take part in.
I have added an activity that challenges you to ‘make a birds’ nest using materials that you find outside. It is a little bit different but hopefully you will enjoy this challenge, it says you can ‘add your stickers’ once you complete your challenge, this is to be added to your reward charts that were added to Tapestry a few weeks ago.
I hope to see some of you when you come in for your transition session this week,
Have a lovely week,
