Hello everyone. We hope you are all keeping well, safe and active? For the coming week there are more maths and English tasks to be completed, plus we would like you to design and make a treasure box to fill with memories of the last few weeks.

Do make the most of the glorious weather that we have been lucky enough to have and remember to read and work on learning your tables. We hope to see you all soon.

  • Year 4 won against the teachers (but only just!)

  • Year 4 girls won against year 4 boys

Can you improve your studio speed enough to increase your rock status?

If so we'll display your rock name here next week.

Get practising everyone! Good luck!

Week 5 - Week beginning 18/5/20

Hello everyone.

Here we are on week 5 and we have more work for you to complete.

 Remember, the most important activities that you can do whilst away from school are reading (both aloud and in your head) and learning your times tables and their matching division facts.

If you can get someone to read to, see if they will ask you questions about what you are reading. You can read anything, as a broad variety of texts is best for you. Have a look around the home - the kitchen is a great source of reading materials, such as the back of a cereal box or recipe books.

Practise saying your tables, first in order and then  get someone to ask you quick questions that are not in order.Use practical items to work out problems. For 2x10, put out two lots of 10 stones so that you can see the amount in front of you. We know you have got the imagination,so see what you can use. Let us see the most imaginative and practical ways that you can record these facts - please send your photographs in to us, so that we can put them onto our website.

This week we would like you to research about the Mayan Gods and create a fact file about your chosen God. Below you will find information about some of the main Gods. We have also provided a fact file template that you may want to use. 

If you want, you can also create a version of your own God, it will be brilliant to see the different powers you invent smiley

Week 4 - Week beginning 11/5/20

Hello everyone,

We hope that you are keeping safe and are all well. We have been thinking about you all and wondering how you are doing with the work that has been set on here. Please be patient with those who are trying to help you.

If you have not realised it yet, if we were at school, we would be studying the Mayan civilisation. If you have access to a computer, you could find out about how these people lived?

As the weather has been so great we imagine that you have been having fun outside as well as doing some work. We would love to see your photos!

Hopefully, we shall all be together soon. Take care,

Miss Rajpara, Mrs Pegley, Mrs Malin, Mrs Talbot, Mrs Hemsley, Mrs Stanley, Mrs Potter and Mrs Newton

As you have been learning about the Mayans, below you will find an information sheet to help you make a timeline for the Ancient Mayans. 

You can choose how you would like to present the timeline. Using a lollipop stick or a strip of card is a creative way!

St Mary's Community Art Activity

From Mrs Ayres: School is really quiet without the children and we miss them so much. Wouldn't it be fantastic if every child drew a self portrait of themselves on an A4 sheet of paper with their arms outstretched which we could put on the perimeter fence? Not only would it brighten up the fence but it would be a daily reminder of who makes our school community so special. If you would like to take part, please draw yourself with your arms outstretched, colour it carefully and add your first name only.

On your daily walk you can post your picture in the letter box on Station Road, outside Picasso class or post them to school if you don't live close by. We look forward to seeing them.
