WELCOME TO CLASS 9 and 10

Mr Hughes and Miss Lawton

I saw this cartoon and it reminded me of someone in my class! - Mr Hughes

CURRICULUM

We wanted to welcome the children from both Class 9 and Class 10 to our shared Year 4 page.

We will be sharing resources, websites and fun project ideas which children can have a go at.

We were all so sad that the term came to such an abrupt end last week. We are all missing each and every one of the children and we are hoping that you are all OK.

We wanted you to know that we are only an e-mail away and we really would be delighted to hear from you - whether it's for help and advice with an activity you are doing at home or just to say hello! Please find our e-mail addresses below: 

ahughes@thewilmslowacademy.co.uk

plawton@thewilmslowacademy.co.uk

 

Please keep safe at home and give your families lots of hugs!

We have already uploaded the home learning pack below which most of the children received on the final day so everyone can access it. 

In addition, we will be adding work for Class 9 and Class 10 to this page on a weekly basis.

We know your children will be feeling very anxious and uncertain at the moment. Please do as much or as little as you like. The most important thing is that all the children get to spend plenty of quality time with their family. If they can keep their minds active and stay fit and healthy too then that is a bonus!

MUSIC

First, watch this clip about The Vegetable Orchestra in Vienna:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xM1EjIDLMLY

Why not have a go at making your own vegetable instruments?

(Remember to ask an adult to help you with any tricky cutting.)

Maybe you could accompany your favourite songs? We would love to see any pictures or videos of you playing. Perhaps you could even create your own vegetable orchestra with other people in your house?

 

RE

First, watch this animated version of the Easter story:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HL8R158Ujp4

Now, have a go at retelling the story in your own words in less than a minute.

Can you freeze frame scenes from the story? Can your family guess which ones you chose?
