W.B. Mon 6th April

Good morning everyone at the start of Holy Week. Thank you to Mrs. Evans for posting the Palm Sunday prayer link on Google Classroom – do have a look at it. Please also take a look at our school newsletter which was emailed on Friday to find out about the opportunity to participate in virtual liturgy this week by drawing or doing a reading.

I do hope you and your families are safe and well at home. The spring sunshine is beautiful and I hope you get out to enjoy some of it in the garden.Well done to everyone for your work on Google Classroom last week and for all your hard work on our different learning platforms.

Please look and see each day what is due in, or ready to start on Google classroom.

If you haven’t tried MyMaths or Maths with Parents yet, follow the log in instructions and see what you have to do there. This will be updated for all pupils.

Here is a reminder of where you will find tasks and activities this week. Apologies that this is quite a long post, but that is better than leaving separate posts every day.

English Writing Work This Week

Jane Considine teches writing on her channel The Training Space. The sessions are very good. They are extremely clear with super learning points to include in some creative writing.

Catch up on Jane’s Youtube channel by clicking on the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/c/thetrainingspace

This will take you to the lesson from the end of last week on the flim ‘Rooted.’

This was shown last week, so you may have already done this, but if you haven’t, you can do it this week.

 

Please upload your piece of writing to our class blog stream during this week by either taking a photo or attaching a document. Remember to:

  • Check punctuation and spelling
  • Include the learning points Jane gives you
  • Write neatly

 

If you have already done this last week and uploaded it, then thank you! Well done! Your writing job is to write your diary and tell us what you have been up to at home, You can include pictures (drawn or photos). Upload it to the stream. It will be great to see how everyone is getting on at home. Let’s see if everyone can upload at one piece of writing this week.

Here is something I’ve found that might appeal to some. It’s an online show called radio blogging.net

Join in with the creative writing at 9.30. The chat is very entertaining too.

https://t.co/eG4BZlktdj?amp=1

It’s run by a teacher called David Mitchell (not the comedian!) and a brilliant writer and poet called Pie Corbett. Every day there are creative and engaging writing games. There’s music and lots of chat which is very creative and fun. Pie Corbett is focusing on aliens today, but he also seems very interested in other topics, such as breakfast, so, in his words, do look out for unidentified flying omelettes!  There is the opportunity to post short pieces of writing which they set for you, and you can even learn how to make your own writing blog which other listeners can read.

Holy Week – an Invitation

This Sunday is Palm Sunday and marks the beginning of Holy Week. With the reality of not being able to physically spend this time together as a parish and school community, we would like to still bring everyone together as best we can online.
We have a plan for every child who wishes to, to contribute to a liturgy by either pre-recording a reading, or making a picture. We will then share this with the whole community on Maundy Thursday and Easter Sunday. If you would like your child to be a part of this, please email
enquiries@stwilfridssheffield.co.uk

and you will be given further instructions.
Please note that the video or other media that is submitted will be published online, including social media, as part of the Holy Week liturgy for St Wilfrid’s and St Thomas of Canterbury Schools. By sharing any media, you are consenting for this to be used in this way. If you would like to take part, please let us know by Monday morning so we can allocate parts.
Thank you.

Great Job With Writing So Far

The writing from Jane Considine’s Super Sentence Stacking which has come in to me today about ‘Hair Love’ on Google Classroom is fantastic! Those learners who have sent it are showing that they can keep up high standards at home. They are doing their very best and I am a really proud teacher! If you have already posted your writing but you want to upload another piece from Jane Considine’s lessons this week, please do! Writing is a basic skill that we need to practise often!

Tomorrow’s movie is The Piano.

Do keep watching, do keep writing. If you haven’t posted a piece of writing on our class blog yet, please keep watching and post one soon. You can watch Hair Love if you feel inspired by the writing which has already gone on the blog.

Spelling Mats for Y4

Just in case you didn’t get these sheets in your spelling book last week, here are the Y3 & Y4 Common Exception Words and the ‘Next 200 Common Words’ lists. We have used the Y3 & Y4 list as the ‘Word of the Week’ on our spelling homework, and the Next 200 are our Spelling Zapper words. Please practise the words a few at a time and and gradually learn to spell all of them. Use these spelling mats to check your spelling when you are working at home.

Science Project to Complete Next Week

Science Project

Next week’s Science project’ is to create a PowerPoint presentation all about rocks and soils. *Remember, you have all week to work on this, so there shouldn’t be any handed in before next week. 

Your presentation must include some learning on:

  • Different kinds of rock – e.g. igneous, sedimentary, metamorphic. How rock can be formed in different ways.
  • Different kinds of soil – e.g. sandy soil, clay soil, loam, peat.
  • How soil is formed and what it is made of
  • Earthquakes
  • Volcanoes
  • Fossils

I have created this in Google Classroom and you should be able to save this and allow me to mark it. I will look at them on Friday 3rd April.

  • Login to Google Classroom
  • Go to Classwork (at the top)
  • Select the ‘All About Rocks and Soils’ Powerpoint Presentation

This should open your presentation in GoogleDocs for you to work on and save. To help with this I have set you some reading on MyOn. To find these books:

  • Login to MyOn
  • Choose ‘Projects’ at the top of the page
  • Choose ‘All About Rocks and Soils.’

There are a few books for you to choose from. You do not have to read them all but they have lots of interesting facts and it shows you are using our science superhero: ‘Billy Bookhead’.  You might also like to use your own knowledge as well as research from the internet or books you might have at home.

 

Maths for Y4 on MyMaths 25 3 20

Please log into MyMaths to do the activities set for you. You have to log in through 2 levels of login to get to your work.

The work can be done gradually by that date and there are lots of activities on the stack, but if you work more quickly, I will be able to see that, and set you some more.

New Google Classroom for Y4 Ms. Devitt’s class

Ms. Devitt’s Class…..
Have you received a message about our new Y4 Google Classroom class, which Mrs. Sadler set up today? It’s just our class. It’s called ‘Y4 Ms. Devitt.’ Class code 76nbwlu. We are going to work in that class from now on.
I will do my best to disable the original ‘Year 4 Year Group’ class. Please do not post work in there from now on.
Apologies for all the changes while we iron out the teething troubles!

Thank you for your patience. It’s a work in progress!

Pete McKee Cartoon Workshops

Mr. Myers has forwarded this, which might be fun to do. Pete McKee is a famous Sheffield artist.

Pete Mckee Art – Pete McKee’s Cartoon Workshop for Beginners!

As many of you may now have kids at home for the time being, Pete will be posting cartoon workshop lessons every Wednesday starting tomorrow, for the next few weeks. As he has done similar workshops before, which have always been well-received, we thought this would be a nice way to offer children, and adults too, something fun and creative to help break up the day, keeping young minds active in addition to their school work. Anyone can take part in these videos which will be uploaded to the Pete McKee YouTube channel. All you’ll need is a few pieces of paper, or whatever’s lying around, card, scrap paper etc., and some pencils or pens. The videos will be posted at 12pm tomorrow for whoever is interested! Here is the link to our YouTube channel:
