Class 4 – Northern Lights Artwork

Today in art, Class 4 have been using their recent learning about colour schemes and blending to create their own art based on the northern lights – using pastels and black paper.

Check them out below:

 

Class 4 – Art – Northern Lights

Class 4 have been looking at shading and blending techniques and the artistic use of colour scheme – inspired by the northern lights.

Check out Emily’s, Samuel’s, Hugo’s and Zak’s below:

 

 

Class 4 Information (and letter)

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to check out Class 4’s information page – which outlines some of the information about Class 4 (including home task expectations, curriculum information and useful links).

 

All children in Class 4 should be aware of our P.E. days (Tuesdays and Thursdays) and they will need to remember they need to come to school in their P.E. kits for those days.

 

In class, we are using an app/website called Seesaw – which allows work to be sent between “Teacher” and “Pupil” devices. Depending on its accessibility, this would be a really useful way to send and receive work from home in any future cases of self-isolation. The app is free to install on Android and Apple devices (e.g. tablets/phones). It can also be accessed by web browsers (e.g. chrome, internet edge/explorer, safari etc.) on computers/laptops. Over the next few days, each child will be given login information which allows them to login into their Seesaw account from home. This will hopeful be an easier form of communication (in terms of send and receiving work as Class 4 pupils will all be familiar using Seesaw) in the event of self-isolation. [Phone call from myself will still happen: see earlier post on Isolating Pupils and Remote Learning]

 

As part of using Seesaw, GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations) dictates that permission from parents is required. See GDPR Parent Letter. If you are able to print/sign the letter at home and send back in (either via email or with child), that would be fantastic. If this is not possible, a letter will be sent home with children over this week.

 

If you have any questions or queries about anything, please do not hesitate to contact me (email: class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk).

 

 

 

 

Thank You Miss Relph!

The staff and children at school wanted to give a massive thank you to Miss Relph for the incredible amount of effort and work she has done over this tricky time to keep the school running as smoothly as possible.

 

It’s easy to forgot the effort involved in running a whole school – let alone running a school through a pandemic, but Miss Relph has quickly adapted the school to multiple changing situations, read through masses of time-consuming guidance, written up plans and risk assessments (and re-written them… again and again with each change in circumstance) – all while ensuring the school is still a warm and welcoming place for those within it.

 

The school has gone from being normal in March, to children and families completing work at home (with the school remaining open for children of key workers) through April and May, to the return of some year groups (under very difficult circumstances) in June and July, and have now put in place plans for the return of all in September. All of which have only been possible thanks to Miss Relph’s fantastic leadership, hard work and dedication.

 

Here’s a short clip of thanks from the children who have been in school:

As we finish our class read for this term last week, your reading task for this week is to draw the front cover of your favourite book (or if you wish, you could design your own version of its cover or even a front cover for your own book).

 

P.E.

This week in school (on Wednesday), we are having a mini-sports day. It would be great if you could also take part at home by sending in any photos or videos of you doing any sporting activities that you wish.

 

Own activities

It would be fantastic if you could share any other things you will be doing at home next week. (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk).

Geography – Locate the Countries

Year 6 have been looking at locating the countries of the world in geography. This included locating the “top” 12 countries in Europe, the “top” 12 countries in North America, all 12 countries in South America, the “top” 12 countries in Asia, the “top” 15 countries in Africa and all the 17 countries in Oceania. After completing all of these, they were challenged to locate the “top” 50 countries on a world map.

Check out this video of Chloe – who was the first to locate all of the given 50 countries correctly on the world map.

(2m was still observed in the filming of this by the use of a, slightly awkward but extra-long, iPad stand).

 

Next up, the capital cities across the world!

History – British timeline

In history, Year 6 have been looking at the bigger picture of British history – eventually creating a scaled timeline. First, we worked out how long ago we needed to start our timelines. The first recorded tool use in hominids (includes modern and early humans) was around 3.4 million years. Using this as our starting point, we found out that the vast majority of “history” was in fact considered “The Stone Age”. We broke the Stone Age in to its three separate periods (Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic) to see how long each of these were too.

This was our first timeline. It was really clear from this the vast extent of the Paleolithic Period. On this timeline, we then worked out when modern humans (Homo sapiens) would fit.

 

Realising that we would need to draw a separate timeline to show the breakdown of Post-Stone-Age Britain (the light blue section of the timeline above), we created a second timeline with a much smaller scale. We then worked out the extent of each period in British history and plotted these onto our second timeline – including some key dates and events. Here are a couple of the “post-Stone-Age Britain” timelines.

Class 4 – Weekly Activities – w/c 01.06

Welcome back. As mentioned before half term, with Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 returning to school, we have needed to change the home activity setup slightly. The main difference is that maths, English and a few foundation subjects will be given weekly. You can choose how best to do these throughout the week. This week’s maths is not going to be a full week as we’d already done the first 2 lessons last week; however, it would be good to recap what you did before half term.

 

I have also gathered together some free websites (some do require you to sign up, but all are free) on a range of different subjects. You can use these as extra to the weekly task as you wish.

 

With myself teaching in school throughout the day, it does mean unfortunately I will not be able to respond to emails and questions. However, Mrs Heath has kindly offered to reply to anything you may send in. If you do have any questions, you can continue to send your emails to class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk.

Next week – Returning to school and home activities

As you are aware, following Miss Relph’s update on Thursday, the Government have confirmed that schools are reopening for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on Monday.

 

Just a specific for those from Class 4 who are returning:
Miss Relph mentioned that school uniform is not a requirement (due to the need for new clothes to be worn each day). It would great if those returning in Class 4 could wear anything suitable for P.E. each day (particularly appropriate footwear) as we won’t necessarily have a set day for P.E. and will be likely to be doing something outside every day.

 

As mentioned before half term, due to this reopening, the home activities will change slightly. The main difference will be that activities will be set weekly – as opposed to daily as previous. Next week’s home activities will be available on the class news from 08:30 on Monday.

Today’s answers and half term

Here are the answers to today’s work:

Year 5 maths:

Here’s the answers to yesterday’s Y5 maths questions:

 

 

 

Year 6 maths:

Problems of the day:

 

As you may have seen in yesterday’s letter, with the school potentially reopening for Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on June 1st, the work set via the website is likely to be slightly different to how it is currently. We are yet to decide the best way to keep providing activities for those not in school alongside teaching those who are, but will keep everyone informed.

 

If anyone has any questions/queries, please feel free to email (class4@brownclee.shropshire.sch.uk).

 

I hope you all have a good half term break, and I’m looking forward to seeing the Year 6s when they return.

Handwriting

Here’s another handwriting activity. Copy up the following in your neatest handwriting:

 

The voices continued as Carl carefully pressed down on the handle. At first, he could not see anything – due to the bright light coming from inside the room. Carl’s ears swivelled as his eyes adjusted. Eventually, he could make out the back of Mr Snuffle’s chair and two drooping white ear sticking out above it. Carl could hear the voices much clearer now. Despite the length of the room, he could even make out some of what was being said.

 

“They arrived last night. We need to stop whatever they’re planning!” a hoarse, crackling voice echoed from behind chair. Carl stepped forward to see if he could make out who – or what – Mr Snuffles was talking to. As he stepped forward, his tail swept along behind him, catching the priceless vase resting on the podium behind him. Carl’s years of training meant he had incredible reflexes. He turned quickly his orange paws reaching out to grab the falling vase. The problem was however – in his desperate attempt to stop the vase falling – Carl’s hind paws had made just enough noise to alert Mr. Snuffles. The bright light was instantly extinguished and the voices ceased immediately. The large black turned, and across the vast room, Carl could see the confusion, shock – and the slightest hint of panic – across his boss’s face…
