Welcome to Home Learning for Years 3 and 4

 

Dear parents and children

Welcome to your final home learning pack. You did it! I would like to say a heartfelt thanks to all of you for your support, words of kindness and encouragement, determination in the face of adversity and resilience in educating your children ( we know home learning has been a challenge). It makes it so worthwhile when even one photo pops up in our inbox showcasing what your child has been up to. We wish you all a lovely summer with fingers crossed for sunshine. Take care

Dear parents and children

Here is your learning pack for week of June 29th. This week, we are nearing the end of James and the Giant Peach, what will happen next on their adventure. Continue to follow along with the videos created by your class teachers. Other highlights include learning about the women who fought to get the vote, including our own Alice Hawkins from Leicester. In science, we wanted the last 2 weeks to be hands on fun so we have included some investigations using straws, let us know how you get on. Mrs Sudra has included a fantastic lesson about texture, all you need is some paper. We have also included another art lesson to get your creative juices flowing; you will be exploring the work of Alma Thomas and trying to create a work of art in her style. Continue to watch a school assembly on Oak National Academy. One of the highlights was Discovery, an assembly about the astronaut Helen Sharman, also one about Beth Tweddle's resilience and perseverance to achieve Olympic success.

As always let us know what you are getting up to (learning related or not), we love hearing from you.
