School is now closed for the majority of pupils. Please find work for your child on the class pages of this website.

Welcome to Class 4

 

Home Learning:

Please find below work for children who are working from home, due to the Coronavirus. This will be updated regularly by Mr Armstrong. He can be contacted on c.armstrong@carltonminiottacademy.org.

 

May I take this time to wish you, your family and your friends good health in these uncertain times.

Daily Activities

Please spend 10-15 minutes on TTRockstars each day. Where possible, please complete at least two 'sessions' on 'SOUNDCHECK' - this will show the progress you make over time.

Please spend 10-15 minutes reading a day.

 

 While I will post a range of activities on this page, on a daily basis, please try to complete tasks such as gardening and baking or try setting yourself a challenge such as 'How many kick ups can you do in 1 minute?'

Remember to stay safe during your time away from school and follow all advice given.

 

Everyday, we will be completing Joe Wicks' 'Daily Hitt Workout'. As part of our brain breaks, we regularly complete these in class and I know the children will enjoy completing these at home as well.

Click here for the live workout at 9am, daily. Alternatively, click here for links to Joe Wicks' 'Active 8 Minute' workouts.

Maths Usually, in Class 4, we follow the 'Steps of Learning (SOL)' from White Rose Maths. Over the next 2 weeks, we will be following the 'Shape' SOL and My Maths Shape.

MyMaths - Please select Geometry (left hand side sub menu) and then property of shape. Please school down to 'Properties of Triangles' Yr 4. Follow the lesson and complete sections 1, 2 and 3. Complete all written work in your 'Maths book'. 

 

English

We are considering creating class names for the time we are spent either at home or in school. I would like you to create a class name and then a poster persuading/explaining why the class should be called this. We will then choose one for our class at school. It would be fun to assign a name for our pupils learning at home, to use on our Twitter page. We could then share what Class A (at school) and Class 1 (at home) have been doing on Twitter, with regular updates... when I get better/understand Twitter. Send photos via email or directly onto the class Twitter. I'll let you know the result!

TOPIC

Last year, I introduced 'one-word homework'. This was used to help 'launch' our learning for new topics or show learning, after a topic was over. It proved a great success and we had Roman shields and standards, Viking helmets, factfiles, a Roman 'first aid kit', diagrams, posters and PowerPoints all created to a really high standard. I would like to try this, following our last topic. The idea is, with just one word, children 'create' their own homework to demonstrate their understanding of a topic. Anything can be created - anything - the more adventurous, the better! Please complete this (I will give you two weeks - due date 3rd April) and send a photo on Twitter or email.

Your word is - Mountain

Enjoy and be creative!

We have been learning all about the Easter story over the first few weeks of this half term. Whilst we have been focusing on Palm Sunday, Garden of Gethsemane and Pontius Pilate; we had split 'Holy Week' into 7 events. 

*Palm Sunday

*Last Supper

*Garden of Gethsemane

*Pontius Pilate

*Good Friday

*Resurrection

*Ascension of Jesus

 

Can you research each event and create a storyboard for 'Holy Week'? - Click here for example storyboard.

Please complete this work over Wednesday and Thursday.

 

PE

Wednesday is usually PE, with a focus on stamina and personal challenge. Use your garden to create a short 'circuits ring' - rumour has it, your parents would love to take part in a timed circuits session... Create 10 activities, complete each for 2 minutes and move to the next. If you can, repeat each activity twice. Ideas could be include:

*Sit ups

*Press Ups

*Running around your garden - how many laps in two minutes?

*Kick Ups

*Star Jumps

*Passing a ball

*Army crawl along the floor - how many widths of you garden can you complete in two minutes?

 

It would be great to have some pictures on Twitter/email of these!
