Hello Year 4,
We hope you have had a lovely Easter, managed to enjoy some of sunshine and eaten lots of chocolate! It is now the start of the Summer Term so our topic is ‘The Vikings’ We would love to see any more Show and Tells about the Vikings you have been doing – send them to email@example.com . Please also go and look at the Heymann Blog to see what your friends have been doing too. We are really missing your smiling faces and all of our daily interesting conversations with each one of you. We hope you are keeping safe and looking after your families at home.
This week we have set more mymaths homework and have another maths booklet for you to complete. We are going to start looking at one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’ We have given you 5 tasks to complete over this week… one does involve watching a TV version of the play! We would like you to carry on working hard with your spellings. There is a new log in for a website called ‘Fitter Future’ where you can get daily workouts at home, have a look at the bottom of this page for more information. Finally we would like you to research 4 different places in New York, ready to write a persuasive piece of writing for a travel brochure next week. You need to list what makes each place exciting and use words that would make people want to visit, e.g. ‘You really must visit Central Park, you will be entertained for hours by all of its fantastic attractions’.
Some useful websites for researching New York are:
Type 'New York' into Google's search engine for children called 'Kiddle'
We have had a lovely idea sent in from a parent and we would like to suggest it as an extra activity that you could complete over the week. It is an Age UK letter-writing campaign to support people who are in hospital at the is time. The details are below (Letters for Lings Bar patients) and it would be great if you got the chance to write a letter and put a smile on somebody’s face.
Take care Year 4,
Miss Goswami, Mrs Jenkins and Mr Murray
