Snow day

Today is a snow day but if you want to keep busy here are a few ideas;

SUMDOG - A new contest started today. Why not have a go and see how you get on. Remember SUMDOG English is available too. Let me know if you have any favourites.

PURPLE MASH - There's so much to do on there. If you haven't used it for some time, use today to have a good look and maybe create some snowy activities.

What ever you do, have a great day and I will see you on Monday.

Our very special visitor

Today Mr Wisnia, our Class Governor came to see us. The children had prepared a wide variety of questions to find out more about him including;

  • What his dream job would be
  • What happened in Governing Body meetings
  • Did he like I.C.T
  • What did he enjoy doing in his spare time
  • Would he rather be a Headteacher or class Governor
  • Questions about Whinmoor Middle School and how the school looked back then

Could you write a fact file about Mr Wisnia based on what you found out?

Multifaceted learning

Talk homework

We have had a fabulous time celebrating World Book day. As your talk homework, I would like you to talk about your favourite author. Your parents can ask you;

  • Why do you like that particular author?
  • Which books are your favourite and why?
  • What would you like to say to one of the characters?
  • If you could ask the author questions, what would they be?
  • Is there a character similar to you? How are you the same?
  • If you could pick one character to be your best friend, who would it be and why?

World Book Day

World Book Day in Year 4 was a fun packed day with a range of activities and amazing outfits. The author we based all our work on was the talented Roald Dahl. His timeless stories have entertained children all around the world.

Here is a link to the Roald Dahl website. You will need to register but it is free.

Have a look at our photos from the day.

Thank you so much for taking part and finding costumes linked to the author Roald Dahl, you all looked wonderful.
