Week beginning: 6 JULY 2020
Well done for all your fantastic work over this half term. This week we will be rounding off our literacy work and all our topics and we have even found you some fun maths to do!
We also have a great PSHE task for you this week where we would like you each to think back over the year and of all the things we have done! Each class teacher has made you a video to help with this!
Next week you will be meeting your new class teachers…
Day 1: No spellings this week! We would really love it if you could each write a blog post talking about your favourite memory of Year 4. E.g. ‘My funniest memory of Year 4 was when we had to do excavating to find out what Saxon’s ate! It was smelly!’
Day 2: Today you are going to plan an alternative narrative for the story; a different fantasy setting which the characters find when they go through the door in the attic.
Day 3: Write a narrative about where Syd and Grandad end up when they go through the door in the attic. Be adventurous in with your word choices and make this your best bit of writing in Year 4!
In maths this week, there is a mystery that needs to be solved! Someone has unplugged the freezer and caused all the ice cream to melt! You have a long list of suspects and you need to work out who done it!
There are 5 maths puzzles to solve and each one gives you a clue about the criminal. Do all five puzzles before you go to the answer sheet!
Click on the Ice Cream for the task. Good luck!
It would also be brilliant if you could spend some time on TTRS. Let’s see if we can win this week!
This week we will be looking at a poem about a dragonfly. There are two tasks for you to work through and then an extra one if you would like more of a challenge. Answer the questions, in full sentences, in your exercise book. Remember, we would like to see the same level of punctuation and handwriting as we would expect to see in your Literacy book.

other tasks to do
Here are some other tasks for you to do as and when you get the chance.
YOU CAN DO AS MANY OR AS FEW AS YOU LIKE!
PSHE: We would really like you all to have a go at this one and send it to us if possible. Have a look at the video that each of us has made which will remind you of all the things we have done this year! Then complete the sheet by clicking on the girl in the mirror. This is your sheet so you can write in coloured pens, colour it in, draw pictures or borders.
SCIENCE: This week you will be investigating magnetic force through a range of different materials. The materials are your choice: bubble wrap, card, towel… You will need to follow the instructions on the PowerPoint. Be warned there are 3 mini videos on it so it may take a couple of minutes to download. Have fun!
GEOGRAPHY: This last part of our topic is all about The Alps which are a mountain range running through Europe. There is a video to watch on Bitesize and then 4 possible tasks to choose from (click on the person skiing!)
D.T.: This final task is to make a radio advert for your bread roll! You can write the script or you can get creative and video your own one. Can’t wait to see what you come up with.
PE: Try REAL PE Day 8.

This is your final week to complete this project.
For your research project this half-term, we would like you to find out about any country in Europe and tell us all about it. It might be a country you have been to on holiday or one that you would like to visit one day.
Click the Europe picture above to find out more!

Here you will find your class blog from which you will be able to contact your teacher and members of your class. Make sure your messages are kind and helpful. You can also email each other or the teachers through Purple Mash.
You can email things you've done to your class teacher at "classname"@orchardjunior.com.
Someone will try to look at the emails each week day and get back to you.
As always, we would like you to practice your times tables and spellings.
Parents please test your children in the way we do at school - they will tell you how!
