Welcome to the final week of school work before the Summer break. Today, we are going to be looking back over the year and will be preparing to make a Lapbook which will contain your favourite moments from your year. We hope you will enjoy this activity.
Here is an outline of the daily activities expected next week and a list of resources that might be needed. We have tried to use resources that are easy to find and that you might already have in your home as much as possible.
There will be a detailed plan uploaded daily which will have instructions, links to web pages, templates etc.
Please visit BEECH CLASS page for the daily plans.
WELL DONE to everyone who took part in the 'frying pan challenge' there were some clever and creative solutions.
Ben made the tallest tower measuring around 100cm high, however his frying was not not as high off the ground compared to the others.
Charlotte Le, Elizabeth, Charlotte S, Chloe and McKenzie managed to make towers that raised the frying pan between 40-60 cm high!
Scroll down for the latest pics!
** Please see the Cherry class page for STEM week activities. **
To help you prepare for STEM week we are sharing the weekly overview with you. We will upload more detailed activity plans each day with clear instructions for the children to follow. Due to the nature of the activities the children may require a little more adult support than usual.
Please scroll down for the daily learning activities, we will keep the year 4 leaver instructions at the top for a short time. Thank you :)
CALLING ALL YEAR 4!!!! As we have been unable to perform a 'Leaver's Play' this year, we would like to create a 'Leaver's Video' for you all to have as a lovely memory of your year group. To do this we require 3 things from you.
~A video of you waving for 5 seconds to the left then turning and waving for 5 seconds to the right. (It won't matter if you start on the right first)
~A photo of you holding an A4 sized piece of paper or card (or larger) with a memory of your time at Linslade Lower school written on it. It must start with I remember when...(This can be decorated if you wish, or left plain, it's completely up to you)
~A video of you dancing to the Leaver's Song. You will need to dance from the beginning of the song to the end of the first set of hand claps ('This is our leaver's song, we're proud of what you've done) Raise your arms up in the air on 'This is our leaver's song' Clap your hands together above your head after 'song' Raise your hands again for 'We're proud of what you've done' then clap again after the word 'done'
You can wear your favourite clothes and any accessories you feel reflect your personality! We want you to have fun!
We have uploaded some examples for you to see.
Please send all three things to Mr Hogg via his Cherry class email address - firstname.lastname@example.org - The deadline will be Friday 19th June to allow enough editing time.
*If you are having trouble emailing the videos due to their size - send them to a friend or family member via Whatsapp, then share them to the Cherry email address from within the Whatsapp message - it seems to compress the videos and send them - I'm sure there are more technical ways to do it, but this seems to work.
Please email Mr Hogg should you have any concerns via the Cherry class email address.
LEAVER'S SONG - TO DANCE ALONG TO
We will mute the videos as we edit them so you don't need to worry about singing along or any background noises.

YEAR 4 LEAVER'S VIDEO
I have read and watched some super, creative poetry!
STEM week is having a fabulous start with lots of boats and towers!
I will display the tower challenge results at the end of the week, so keep them coming.
Warning - YEAR 4 - When you click on the link to watch a video on how to simplify fractions it starts the video towards the end, then goes onto a Maths Antics video (Which is very complicated!). You need to play the video that opens first from the start, and not watch the Maths Antics video.
TT Rock Stars UPDATE: KS2 take an early lead...but can they sustain it?
WELCOME BACK YEAR 3'S I hope you have had a lovely half term and are ready for some maths!
Your work is in a pdf which is more suitable for an ipad or iphone and a powerpoint presentation which should work on most other products. Any queries about your work then please contact me: email@example.com
Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying your half term and this glorious sunny weather. I have enjoyed seeing all thelovely work you have been completing at home, you have all been working very hard. Keep it up and I look forward to seeing lots more after half term. Here are some more examples. Take care everyone :)
Good morning everyone. In SPaG, Comprehension and English this week, it's all about butterflies. We hope you enjoy the work. As always remember to send pictures of your work into firstname.lastname@example.org. We would love to see what you have been upto. Here is the SPaG work for Monday 11th May 2020.
There is no planned activity for Friday this week, which would be a topic activity. I have planned a short activity about canals and locks for you to find out about just in case you wanted to to do some topic work!
Due to a slight error (Mr Hogg setting the start time at 8:40pm!) There will be no TT Rock Stars update until Tuesday evening. (On the plus side, girls - this means if Bobby racked up hundreds points on Monday, they didn't count so you can all get going and pull ahead of the boys!)
Hello Beech Class, I hope you are all keeping well.
I noticed that the Beech Class email was left off the list on the school news letter by accident!
Just in case you have any questions about your learning.
Welcome back everyone, we hope you have enjoyed your Easter break. The Plan for the English, SPaG and Comprehension for the week begining 20/4/20 will give you the activites for the week, so you can plan your day around the work. We will upload the activities for each day on the day.
Here are some suggestions to help you learn your spellings...
1. Choose 5 words at time to focus on over the week using a 'Look, cover, write check' approach.
2. Choose 5 words at a time to try and write in different sentences across the week. This will really help the children understand the word and the contexts it can be used in.
3. Choose words, and challenge yourself to use them at different places within a sentence - start, middle and end. (Special toys are kept on the shelf. I love the special things you do for me. The letter is so special.)
4. Choose words and look up their meaning in the dictionary.
5. Write the words in interesting ways - turning them into pictures.
6. Write words and use dots and dashes to count the phonemes (sounds) E.g Weigh t = 3 sounds
7. Dictation - Adult reads the word in a sentence, and the child records the sentence.
8. 'Speed spell' See how many times you can write the word in 30 seconds. Challenge an adult!
We hope this gives you some interesting alternatives to learning spellings.
