Spring Term Two

Welcome back! We've missed you and are looking forward to seeing you on live lessons again soon.

You have really impressed us with the range of activities you have completed, what a wonderful celebration of all of your achievements.                                                                                    Image result for superstar gif

 

Week Beginning 1.03.21

Well, I'm sure many of you will be delighted to hear that this will be the last ‘Home Learning’ grid as we will be welcoming you back to school on Monday 8th March. In preparation for your return, we are going to be very busy getting everything ready so you will notice that zoom sessions will be Monday and Friday only. We have to say, we have thoroughly enjoyed all of our live sessions and that's all because of the efforts of so many of the children every single day!!! Can we offer a gigantic thank you to all parents and carers for your endless support...I bet you can't wait for a week where you don't have our voices echoing through your homes every morning. 

We are really looking forward to all being together again - not long now!

Happy Half Term!!!

We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your enthusiasm and commitment to home learning. We have been so impressed with your resilience to ‘keep on going’. We have so many fond memories of this term of Zooms, filled with laughter and celebrating each and every achievement. We hope that you manage to get some rest and relaxation over the next week. We do not expect pupils to complete any assigned activities but we have attached a selection of extra resources if the children wish to do so.
We will attach the ‘Home Learning’ grid for the week beginning Monday 22nd February at the end of next week.
We wish you all a lovely half term, be safe and take care of one another.

REMINDERS

COLOUR CHALLENGES: The colour groups link to the colour challenges children choose at school. If they find a concept a bit tricky, they may start with orange, if they feel comfortable, they move to green and if they feel very confident they may want to try purple.

SHARING LEARNING: If you feel you need feedback, help, support or that your child would benefit/ be more motivated by instant praise and input from their teacher, feel free to email any work of your choice. Our aim is to support families as much as we can and to celebrate learning rather than to make it a further chore for parents. Please share as you see fit in your circumstances.

History Day

What a fantastic day we had, you all looked superb! Year 4 you really made us so very proud, the effort made by all was a great celebration of this important date in our school calendar. We certainly were busy making shields, helmets, daggers and completing some Roman mosaic designs. We really enjoyed hearing about your knowledge of this topic. A very successful day, thank you to you all!

At Woodheys we want to share as much as possible with parents and with this new app we hope to keep you up to date with your child’s learning.

  • Turn on notifications and you can see what is happening in the classroom as it is happening!

  • If you have more than one child - no problem!! You can subscribe to as may Woodheys channels as you want. 

  • You will receive regular posts each week on some of the exciting events and learning that take place at Woodheys. This will replace the year group pages on the website.

Recommended Reading.

4G had a wonderful Zoom lesson today, where were got to share our opinions on a huge range of texts. Out of the the whole class, there was not a single repetition in terms of the books that were chosen so it really shows what diverse readers we have!

I have complied a list of all the books that were discussed and I have also attached a recommended reading list for Lower Key Stage Two pupils! Remember, these books can be enjoyed independently or are lovely to share as a family. Happy reading!

November Year Group Closure.

 Good Morning! Hope everyone is OK after the news yesterday that Year Four will not be able to return to school until Friday 20th November. We understand that it is a disruption but our main priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of all our families.  Until we can return, we will be providing a range of resources to keep pupils busy. From Friday, we can also provide some live sessions over Zoom where children can join us to do some activities and have a catch up.  Year Four staff we be available throughout the bubble closure, should you need anything, and can be contacted via email at LKS2@woodheysprimaryschool.co.uk

I will share some documents with you on here later today but until then, here are some very useful websites.

Autumn Term 2 

Week 1

 Welcome back everyone, so lovely to see all of your smiley faces this week, your positivity definitely keeps us all going.

This week in maths we have been revising the skill of subtraction and have explored a range of methods to calculate the answers. Put your skills to the test and be a Subtraction Superhero!

Maths AT2W1.docx

SPELLINGS

This week we are concentrating on adding the suffix ‘ous’ to turn a noun into an adjective.

Autumn Term 

Week Seven

We just wanted to take this opportunity to congratulate all of Year 4 for their hard work and positivity throughout the half term. We are extremely proud of each and every one of them. They are excellent role models for Woodheys, a fantastic achievement.

This half term we have set a fun challenge that requires imagination and creativity, good luck!

Home Learning W7.docx

SPELLINGS

This week we are concentrating on vowel sounds. The letter Y can make a long y sound or a short i vowel sound. There are also some other words that have a short i sound that a have some tricky parts to remember.

23.10 y as i.doc

Week Six

Talking Task

Talking Homework T4W.docx

Talk for writing story 2.docx

SPELLINGS 

This week we are looking at adding the suffix ‘ly’ to a root word to change a word to an adverb. Sometimes a word may already end in a suffix ‘ful’ so it is important to remember to add ‘ly’ not just y.

16.10 suffix ly.doc

Week Five

In English, we have been using the book 'Lost Happy Endings' written by Carol Ann Duffy. We have been discussing the possibility of all the happy endings of bedtime stories being lost forever. This week, we have started to learn an alternative ending for 'The Three Little Pigs' and have ben putting actious to it in our Talk4Writing. We would like you to create your own alternative ending to a favourite traditional story. Maybe in your ending the slipper doesn't fit Cinderella. Or how about Goldilocks is charged with trespassing. We look forward to hearing your endings next Friday 16th October.

Alternative endings.docx

SPELLINGS We have continued to look at suffixes this week.

We have been looking at how 'ful' can be added to a noun (such as wonder) to create an adjective.

We then looks at how 'ly' can be added to adjectives to create adverbs.

suffix 'ly'

Week Four

In science, we have been learning about the different ways to classify vertebrates. We have asked the children to research some animals that are either mammal, amphibian, reptile, bird or fish - the more unusual the better. You can choose to present the information in any way you like. Your could produce a poster, booklet, information text or even something on the computer. If you make something that you want to send in to us, it can be emailed to LKS2@woodheysprimaryschool.co.uk (FAO: class teacher)

SPELLINGS We have been working a lot of suffixes recently and how they can be added to root words to create new words. We have been using the correct vocabulary to discuss words (such as identifying their word classes and talking about vowels and consonants).

This week, we have been looking at the suffix 'tion' and how it can be added to a verb to change it to a noun.

e.g. invite can become invitation.   Please find the spelling list below

suffix:  tion 

Week Three
