P4 – Summariser and The 3 Sharings

Think about the last book you have read. This may have been a book at home, a class reader or an accelerated reading book.

Your task is to try and summarise the book. This means you need to tell us what the story is all about, picking out the most important parts.

Next, use the 3 Sharings to discuss the book.

  1. What did you like/dislike about it?
  2. What was tricky to understand in the book?
  3. What other books/movies does it remind you of? Does it remind you of anything in your own life?

Hi Everyone,

Message from Sumdog below.

We want to help lighten the mood for children. So if you’ve never experienced premium Sumdog before, then your pupils are going to be in for a treat. They will have access to over 20 fun games that will motivate them to practise maths, spelling and grammar. Enjoy!

Everyone has their logins in their homework diary so should be able to access the site.

Thanks, Mr Burrell


P4B – Pupils not in school.

Hi Everyone,

As some of you are unable to make it to school this week I thought it might be a good idea for you to type up a story about a Viking god. In class you have been learning about,  Freya, Thor, Loki and Iduna. Try to imagine that you are that God for a day and tell us all about what you would get upto. (you have already done this for Odin in class)

Thor – God of Thunder

Freya – Goddess of Love and Beauty

Loki – 1/2 god, 1/2 giant

Iduna – Goddess of Immortality

Once you have completed your story you can email it to me or one of your classmates through glow and we can share it with the class.

(I am aware that this might not be possible for some so there is no pressure to do it)

Regards, Mr Burrell

P4B – Homework

Hi everyone,

Just to clarify, P4B you do not have homework this week. You do however have your homework jotters in your school bags. If you want to do some  homework you can complete your 4 sentences in your spelling homework jotters. For maths remember you can always go on sum-dog and play some maths games.

Thanks, Mr Burrell

P4B Homework

Last week P4B wrote outstanding persuasive letters on why they shouldn’t have homework this week. Due to this no homework will be handed out as you have all been able to convince me that you need a break. (those who wish to do some home work can complete their 4 sentences as normal)

Well done everyone.

Mr Burrell

Big Pedal 2020

Good news !  The Big Pedal cycling, scooting and walking challenge is back.  From Wednesday 22nd April to Tuesday 5th May we would like you to bring your bike or scooter to school every day. You will get the chance to bike or scoot with your classmates and your teacher. If you can’t bring a bike or scooter, you can walk and that will count too.  For more information have a look at the Big Pedal website.

This is a national competition to see how many journeys we can make biking, scooting or walking. Please ask an adult to check that your bike or scooter is in good working order. You may bring a lock to use but you must be responsible for the key.

Rules – all cyclists MUST wear a helmet

– no cycling or scooting in the playground ( or the ashy path) unless you are with your teacher (on the way in/out, playtime and lunchtime)

We have taken part in this challenge for the last few years and it is always good fun.  We are usually in the top 10. Let’s try for top 3 this year!

Happy cycling/scooting/walking

Mrs Ferguson
