Activity day opportunities for Year 4

The government guidance and restrictions mean that we are unable to admit Year 4 back full time like we have for other year groups. However, for those families who have expressed a wish for their child to return before the end of term we have arranged 4 days next week for the children to spend some time in school. They can attend Monday to Thursday next week at the times indicated in the attached document. Please read it very carefully- our experience of other year groups returning is that not everyone is reading the guidelines as closely as they should and as a result are turning up at the wrong gates at the wrong time. If you do not wish to take advantage of this offer for your child please contact school directly. Thank you **This information is for those who indicated YES on the recent survey. This plan is based on those numbers. If you indicated NO please do not arrive with your child.**

Message for Parents

I have tried to put a range of work on the web site to keep children going. I would treat the web page (https://www.hunsletstmarys.co.uk/page.php?id=10999) as a menu to dip into and it's fine to visit work from previous weeks, or even work from different classes if you feel it is appropriate. Most of all I would concentrate on regular reading and discussing books with your child (I put some useful links on the web site for reading at home). The White Rose maths materials are also very useful as there is a good explanatory video provided and accompanying work as daily lessons ​(these are on the year 4 page each week). There are also links on there to BBC bite-size weekly work and to the Oaks National Academy weekly work, again these include videos and follow on work. Just to be clear, if you have not got a printer don’t worry, most of the work can be completed from the screen. Use the sheets, links, etc. to look at but do the work on separate pieces of paper or in an exercise book, it does not have to be printed out. You will need a pdf reader like Acrobat Reader (https://downloads.tomsguide.com/Adobe-Acrobat-Reader-DC,0301-63113.html) and a program to access Microsoft Word (https://www.freeoffice.com/en/) if you don't have it, in order to see the work being set. Microsoft also does ‘viewers’ of most of its programs and these can be accessed through an internet search.

If you have any specific ‘tech’ questions, please let me know stephen.walsh@hunsletstmarys.co.uk

 

Regards,

Mr. Walsh

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well and enjoying this lovely sunshine. I wanted to share this with you that the school staff have put together. Enjoy!

Below is The Collect from today's service.

 

The Collect: Fourth Sunday After Trinity

 

O God, the protector of all who trust in you,
without whom nothing is strong, nothing is holy:
increase and multiply upon us your mercy;
that with you as our ruler and guide
we may so pass through things temporal
that we lose not our hold on things eternal;
grant this, heavenly Father, for our Lord Jesus Christ’s sake,
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God
, now and for ever.
Amen.

 

Reflection opportunity:

What are material things and what are spiritual? How important is stuff? What do you really need to have a happy life?

An Idea for prayer:
Think of those things which are the most important - love, kindness, friendship - ask for help to keep these in mind as we go about our daily lives.

Summer 2 week 6

Good morning class 4. Please see the work I have set out for you to do, if you are still at home, in the documents list below. This week I have provided you with another project to do, this time on celebrations, a link to lots of art activities and a new topic of Yoga. I have also concengrated your English work (including the RICs) on film this week. I hope that you are all reading regularly and taking every opportunity to do some independent learning. Please share some pictures of things that you have been doing and I will add these to our galleries if you send them to me. Don’t forget, if you want to access Espresso from home then email me on stephen.walsh@hunsletstmarys.co.uk for the login. Take care everyone and stay safe. Mr. Walsh

    and keep us faithful now and always.
    Amen.

    Have a look at these pictures that some of the key worker group did. They first painted some paper in mixed colours, but you could use felt tips or crayons instead if you prefer. Then they drew around different sized circles to make planets. Finally, they stuck them onto some black paper to look like space. You could use this idea for your work on Pandora.
