Year 4 I have been so impressed with all of your hard work this week. I know everything feels a bit strange, but it has been lovely receiving emails from some for you showing me what you have been up to or just to have a chat. Keep up the fantastic work and stay safe!

Additional Home Learning Activities
I’m very pleased to hear that so many children in Class 4 are continuing their studies at home. As a result, below are a few websites that we use for our Morning Maths session and for short bursts of practising maths skills. These websites all provide the answers to the questions set and you are able to access work of varying difficulty and year group. I will keep on adding to these over the next few weeks.
I have also included additional work that could be completed on the computer or on paper. Many of these packs include the answers for the children to self mark. The children can also complete any of the half term homework packs previously handed out. You can find pdf copies of these on the class page.

For many of us it is only the first few days into our home learning and I have already received lots of lovely emails from children and parents. Along side their set work from the class website, some children are taking the time to read new books and others are learning new languages. These are some of the examples of work and home timetables I have been sent. Well done Class 4 keep going!!

Today Year 4 had the fantastic opportunity to meet and listen to people from the Midlands Air Ambulance. The children were also allowed to climb into a POD of an air ambulance to see what it would be like to try to rescue people in need.
Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish
In our Science lessons we have been looking at how we classify different living things. As a starting point the children had to work out how they would group different living things based on the headings Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish.

Due to the fantastic pieces of homework created by children at Colwich, the whole school got a chance to see what each class produced in their Autumn term homework. Children in Year 4 demonstrated brilliant artistic skills, research talents and lovely handwriting abilities. Some children in Year 4 also produced these magnificent musical instruments.
