Hi Class Four!  smiley


Below I have attached the final week of Home Learning work! As it is the last week of term, I have included a mixture of challenges and activities this week, which involve practising some of the learning from the year. The tasks for the week are set out in the Weekly Plan. I have also uploaded printable resources for Maths, English and Other Subjects. All the links are below.


I understand for some of you it may be difficult to work at home, however, please try to do as much as you can. As a guide each activity should take no more than 45 minutes to an hour (maybe less). You don't have to do it all in one go and don't worry if you don't get it finished, you can carry on whenever you have time.


If you have any questions, or need support, please email me and I will get back to you as soon as I can. It would be great to hear how you are getting on, and how you are finding your Home Learning work. 


Stay safe,

Mrs D'Onofrio and the Class Four team smiley

VE Day Preparations


As I'm sure you'll know, Friday is a Bank Holiday. It is unusual to have a Bank Holiday on a Friday, and the reason we have it this year is because it is a day to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE day. Learn more about VE day on the Newsround site here

You can also watch this Horrible Histories song about it here. 


Although celebrations will not be exactly how people planned them, many people are determined to make the best of the day! For the last big celebration of VE day, there were memorial services, the Queen made a special speech and people decorated their streets with bunting and flags. This Espresso video link shows you about of the 70th Anniversary in 2015.


Here are a couple of activities you might like to do to prepare your own celebration with your family: 


1. Make your own VE day bunting


2. Have a go at the VE day lego challenge: 


However you choose to spend your Bank Holiday, I hope you have a lovely day smiley


** 4/5/20 The White Rose Maths work for this week is from their Week 1 (before Summer Term) lessons. Don't worry about the dates on their site, each scheme of work covers the maths topics in different orders, so we are keeping to the order that we have been using throughout the year to ensure that the children cover the topics they need to. While I cannot create a direct link to the individual lessons, I have written the lesson name/topic in the plan so that you know you are in the right place! If you are unsure, please let me know!**

** I have discovered that the ixl maths game for Wednesday's work will only allow children to answer limited questions for free before asking for a subscription. Once you get to this point, you can finish this activity and practise Times Tables Rockstar **


Happy Birthday!
