DOJO

 

In the circumstances we are reinstating Dojo as a communication tool and for children to share their home learning. I have tried to add most parents back but if you haven't received an invite, please contact the office with an email address for me to add you.

 

Languages Home Learning Revision - to try if you like!

Home Learning

This is a strange and difficult time for everyone but it is important that children try and complete some type of work on the days that they would have been at school.

 

I will update this page weekly with literacy tasks for children to complete. I will also provide a weekly link to White Rose Maths, where there are daily activities that follow on lesson by lesson. There is a video and activity as well as answers.

 

Other home learning resources:

Welcome to Class 9

 

In Class 9 we are all friendly, respectful, responsible and resilient learners who follow the road to success. 

We have some interesting topics and exciting learning opportunities planned for over the year to enjoy with Miss Crump and Mrs Trainer. 

Week 1 - Y4 Maths

The scheme we use in class, White Rose Maths have provided home learning maths activities (1 for every day) including a video, activity and answers. This follows on from what we were learning in class and will help children to build on their prior knowledge, enabling them to keep on track with modules just like we would be in school. Any working out can be completed in children's home learning book they were provided. I've added the link to the website below.

 

Children can also practise their arithmetic and times tables just like we do in class!

Safer internet day 

 

As part of safer internet day children used purple mash and took part in a quiz to test their knowledge about staying safe online. They then started to create their own posters to inform others about how to stay safe online by following 5 simple rules. 

Science - electricity

 

In science children enjoyed finishing our electricity module by creating circuits to test different items to see if they were conductors or insulators.

They also experimented with switches investigating how they worked in a circuit. 

Coding 

 

Class 9 enjoyed their time in the IT suite to do some coding! They especially enjoyed using the new laptops! Some children found it tricky but persevered trying to complete their challenges. 

After recapping the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world we looked more closely at Africa. Using an atlas, we identified the counties of Africa. 
To introduce our new topic ‘Africa’ we had an art day creating our own pieces of African inspired art. We used repeating patterns to create our designs. 
Remembrance artwork  
School council elections 

British prime ministers 

 

To being our topic learning, children created a timeline of significant British Prime Ministers in chronological order. 

A special visit from Winston Churchill to introduce our new topic ... History Makers!  

Circles in circles 

  

Ending our greatest artist topic children recreated one of Kandinsky’s famous pieces of work. Children focused on lines and the overlapping of circles as well as experimenting with colour to create their work.  

Roald Dahl day 

 

To celebrate Roald Dahl day, children came to school dressed as their favourite character or wearing yellow. Children spent the day designing their own chocolate bar just like Willy Wonka. Working in teams, they decided on a name for their chocolate, what ingredients it would include, designed the packaging and then created an advert to share with the rest of the class. 

Abstract art 

 

Continuing with our art topic, children created their own pieces of abstract art inspired by Kandinsky’s work. We discussed features of Kandinsky’s abstract artwork such as his use of complementing and contrasting colours, lines and shapes. Children began by drawing their designs, used pen to emphasis their shapes and lines and then painted their work.

Children were very creative and produced some amazing work to be proud of!

 

The Greatest Artist 

 

Our first topic this year is the greatest artist. In class we have being studying Wassily Kandinsky learning all about his life and looking at how his art work changed over time. After learning that Kandinsky was particularly interested in the use of colour in his work, we experimented and recreated his Colour Study: Squares with Concentric Circles. Listening to music just like Kandinsky did we produced some fantastic work and discussed our choice of colours in relation to our emotions.
