Good morning children,

 Why do ducks make great detectives?

They always quack the case. Image result for crying laughing emoji

Today we celebrate the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul.
They are called the Princes of the Apostles. God gave them extra special powers. All the Apostles helped to set up the Christian Church - but Peter was a good leader, so God put him in charge of the other Apostles. He was the first Pope. Nowadays, the Pope is in charge of all the priests.
Paul was a good speaker and letter writer, so God gave him the job of telling people about Jesus. Paul travelled to many countries, such as Crete and Italy. He also wrote to people in other countries, such as Greece. His talent was telling foreigners about God. He used that talent well.
Nowadays, missionaries teach foreign people about God. It can still be a lonely, hard life, like it was for Paul.

Lord,

you warned your followers that their lives would not be easy,

that they would face danger and death if they stood up for you. May we be strong like the first Christians.

Amen.

Lord,

when we think of the Church, we think of a building and the people in it.
When you think of the Church, you see people all over the world joining together to worship you.
Help us to be glad that we belong to your family, the Church.

Amen.

Today you could:

  • Find out more about the lives of Saints Peter and Paul. Present your findings in an interesting way. It could be a fact file or a power-point presentation.
  • Look at spag.com these are two tests - one on apostrophes and plurals and one on direct speech. You could use BBC Bitesize to support you.
  • Look at the maths booklet about multiplication and division. Have a go at a couple of pages a day. I have added the answer booklet but I expect this to be completed throughout the week.
  •  Have a go at today's word problem.
  • Have a go at the reading comprehension. Remember to read the text three times and then answer the questions. Write your answers using full sentences, Remember to use capital letters and full stops and your best handwriting.

Please send me pictures of your work to worksharing@st-annes.coventry.sch.uk

You and all your families are doing a wonderful job and I am proud of every single one of you.

Love

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.

This weekend was the summer solstice. 

The summer solstice is the longest day of the year - that means it has the most hours of sunlight.

In the northern hemisphere (where the UK is) in 2020 it falls on Saturday 20 June.

It took place at 10:43pm.

The summer solstice marks the end of spring and start of summer. It will end with the  autumn equinox, which this year falls on 22 September.

You can read more about it at: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/23004227

Stonehenge summer solstice celebrations

Summer solstice is usually celebrated by thousands of pagans across the world.

At Stonehenge on the summer solstice, the sun rises behind the Heel Stone in the north-east part of the horizon and its first rays shine into the heart of Stonehenge. This year is the first year it has been closed so people have not been able to celebrate as usual.

Things you could do today:

  • Find out more about the summer solstice 
  • Complete the reading comprehension about whales.
  • Look at the maths booklet about addition and subtraction. Have a go at a couple of pages a day. I have added the answer booklet but I expect this to be completed throughout the week.

Good morning children,

What do ghosts like to eat in the summer?

I scream Image result for crying laughing emoji

Wow! Did you see and hear that storm last night? Wasn't the thunder loud! The lightning really lit up the sky too!

What causes thunder and Lightning?

Image courtesy of eduplace.com

This giant spark of electricity surges through clouds and sometimes touches down on Earth’s surface. What causes thunder: Thunder is the sound lightning makes, this is because lightning suddenly increases the pressure and temperature around it, expanding the air and making a thunderous boom.

Things you could do today:

  • There is a maths problem for today with the answers. The problems are about tenths as decimals. You can always look at the short video on https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-4/ week 1 if you're unsure what to do.
  • Have a look at the Pobble 365 activities for today. The title is Capturing the Weather, which I thought was appropriate with the weather last night. Look at the picture and have a go at some of the activities.
  • Read the text, A Storm is Brewing and answer the questions.
  • Times Table Rockstars, we really could do with climbing up that ladder

 

It was lovely to speak to so many of you or your parents yesterday.

Please remember to share at least one piece of work a week. You can do this by emailing it to: worksharing@st-annes.coventry.sch.uk

 

You and all your families are doing a wonderful job and I am proud of every single one of you.

Year 4 - Mrs Roston  (Mrs Miller TA)

I would like to welcome you and your children to Year 4. We are looking forward to a busy and enjoyable year. We have many opportunities planned to engage and excite the children to help them enjoy all of their learning.

Children will take part in daily Maths, English and Spelling lessons. They will also participate in RE, PE, Science and Spanish lessons throughout the week. All other subjects will be taught through our Imaginative Learning Projects. These projects allow children to develop their knowledge and skills in a creative and engaging way.

Your child will be given a reading book and a reading record for you to comment in. Mrs Miller and I will write comments in the book to help you and your child know what they need to do to develop their reading skills. Please try to listen to your child read for 10 minutes every night and write a comment in your child’s reading record. This will really help your child to become a confident, fluent reader. I am passionate about reading and I can’t wait to share lots of stories with the children this year and help them to develop as readers.

 Your child will receive homework every Friday. Please try to support your child in completing their homework and returning their book to school by the following Wednesday.

 Our PE days will be on Wednesday and Friday and children will need to have the correct kit.

 The children have settled into Year 4 really well already and I am excited to see how they grow and develop over the coming year. There are a lot of exciting challenges ahead of us, including new books to read, new friends to make and new skills to master… I look forward to you sharing in those times and I am really looking forward to getting to know you and your children this year.

 

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to talk to me.

Today, the children visited the Herbert Art Gallery.  They looked at Anglo-Saxon artefacts, heard the legend of Lady Godiva and created a print inspired by Anglo-Saxon designs.  We passed the Statue of Lady Godiva, on our way to the bus stop. What a fantastic way to begin our topic!

Today, the children sang a song called Lady Godiva.  We hope you enjoy it!

Today, the children made cookies.  Chocolate or raisin...which do you prefer?

As an introduction to our new topic, Year 4 visited the Lunt Roman Fort today.  The children were amazing!  They learned about how successful the Roman Army were at keeping the Celts out of their forts.  They found out about armour, weaponry and some fighting techniques the Roman Army used.  They listened well and interacted with enthusiasm.  They also asked some excellent questions to find out even more.  We are all looking forward to learning more over the coming weeks.

Today Year 4 led the Rosary. Thank you, children.

Here are a few of our children hoping to be elected onto the School Council.  They shared their manifestos with class. Good Luck!

The children had an amazing day which included a yoga session.  A huge well done to them all for trying some very challenging positions. 

Wow! We have started our time in Year 4 with a bang!  Today, the children explored a variety of aquatic creatures.  They observed closely their shape and fine details and made detailed drawings of them.  A great way to start our first topic: Blue Abyss.
