Hello Y3 and Y4.
This is the LAST week of this academic year. We hope you have enjoyed being in Year 3 and Year 4, we have certainly enjoyed teaching you all! You are all superstars.
We hope you are also excited about moving up into your new year group. You should receive your school report this week and it will also tell you who your new teacher is for next year.
The work below is focused around getting you prepared and ready for a new start in September. We hope you have a fantastic summer break and we can't wait to see you all in September!
Miss Holmes, Ms Merriman, Mrs Bell-Williamson, Mrs Mahmood, Mrs Thomspon, Mrs Legge, Mrs Moore and Mrs Case.
Can you believe that very soon you will be in the next year group? How exciting!
Below are two activities to help you with the transition into your new year group.
The first activity is a 'My School Year Memory Page.' It is nice to reflect back on the fantastic year you have had in your current class...before Coronavirus and when things were normal. Complete this activity by filling in each section and writing about things such as your funniest memory and your favourite book from class this year.
The second activity is a passport into next year. All about you. This is something special for you to complete and take with you into Year 4 and Year 5. Think carefully about what targets you want to set yourself for next year. What do you want to achieve? What are your subject strengths?
Your writing task for this week is to create a letter for your new teacher. This letter should tell your teacher 'all about you.'
It is a lovely way for them to learn the important things about you, usually you would have had some transition time with them but unfortunately that can't happen this year. Make sure you tell your new teacher your likes, dislikes, what you are excited about in the new year group, maybe the things you are also worried about.
There is a letter writing template below if you would like to write it on there, otherwise you can write your letter on a piece of paper at home.
We've worked so hard this year on practising our times tables and you've been doing a brilliant job on Times Tables Rockstars and during lessons. It is important that you keep practising this week and throughout the summer holidays so that you are confident ready for September.
The link below will take you to a website with a range of different multiplication and division games. Try to play a few of the games this week and really test your times tables knowledge.
There is also another good website called 'Top Marks' which is FULL of maths games to play, including games all about times tables and multiplication and division. The website link is below for you to use. Have fun!
This week I'd like you to try some food science. These experiments are quite fun and you can always use the ingredients in some food and homebaking (kitchen science) afterwards.
I shall be having a go at the making butter experiment (Nom).
Please remember, you can add any science that you do at home onto the Purple Mash website (using jpeg photos) for others to see your awesome work.
Have a great summer holiday - and I look forward to seeing you next school year.
