It has been a long few weeks but we have been massively impressed with the amount and quality of work that we have had sent in. Remember, if you have not yet managed to send in any photographs of your children's work then please do as we would really like to publish some work from every child in year four so that everybody can see how brilliant they are.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR LEMURS AND TIGERS? COME ON, WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOUR AWESOME EFFORTS.
Email your pictures to Miss Smith or Mrs Forryan (through your School Jotter emails) or ask an adult to send it to us at either firstname.lastname@example.org or

ADULTS PLEASE MAKE IT CLEAR ON THE EMAIL WHETHER OR NOT WE CAN PUBLISH THE PHOTOGRAPHS OR NOT. THANK YOU.

A selection of free to read eBooks can be found on:
- EPIC This is where you will need to go now for free ebooks

- watch Newsround and discuss what is happening around the world.
You are going to continue to practise the year 3 / 4 statutory words -
You have now worked your way through all of the words on the statutory word list for year 3 and 4 meaning that over the previous few weeks you should have practised spelling all of them.
Use this statutory words list sheet to check which words you have made spelling mistakes with before and then practise them some more until you get them right.
Over the week complete all of the following for the words you have chosen:
- Learn how to spell the words
- Write a definition of each focus word (what it means)
- Where it is possible, write synonyms for each focus word (words which mean the same) and antonyms (words which mean the opposite)
- Use each focus word in a sentence.
Over the next few weeks do a spelling test once a week on the words that have been identified as the ones your child is struggling with from the list – it takes 10 minutes and keeps your kids on their toes.
Day 1 You are going to use what you have learnt about speech puntuation to have a go at writing some of your own.
REMEMBER: sometimes the reported clause (said word and who is saying it) comes at either the beginning of the sentence or in the middle of the sentence as well.
" I can't wait to see my friends, I've really missed everybody," stated Miss Smith. END
Miss Smith stated, "I can't wait to see my friends, I've really missed everybody." BEGINNING
"I can't wait to see my friends," stated Miss Smith, "I've really missed everybody." MIDDLE
Day 2, 3, 4 and 5 You are going to use some of the writing skills you have been practising over the past few weeks to complete some activities.
DAY 1: SPEECH PUNCTUATION
REMEMBER, SPEECH MARKS ARE ALSO KNOWN AS INVERTED COMMAS
Use the links below to remind yourself how to use speech punctuation
Now click the link below and read the instructions. you will be using some of the speech from the play script you are reading on Active Learn to add speech punctuation to it. The link below explains what you need to do.
DAY 2: More reading and comprehension practise.
You are going to read a text about a famous athlete called Usain Bolt. you may have heard of him. Then you are going to answer some comprehension questions.
Make sure you are thinking very carefully about your HANDWRITING, GRAMMAR, SPELLING and PUNCTUATION.
Read this first Usain Bolt information
DAY 3 : Usain Bolt can be described as being INSPIRATIONAL meaning that he INSPIRES people. (this means he makes people want to do something just like he worked hard to become a world famous athlete) Many people see him as a HERO.
Who is your hero or heroine? Who inspires you?
Your task today:
Write a paragraph explaining who inspires you and why, giving reasons and examples.
Remember to think about HANDWRITING, GRAMMAR, SPELLING and PUNCTUATION.
Day 4 and 5 : Write a letter to the person who inspires you, telling them why they inspire you and what you like and appreciate about them. REMEMBER TO USE WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY LEARNT ABOUT LETTER WRITING WHEN YOU WRITE YOUR LETTER. Also remember NOT to use your full name or REAL address.
You can write it to anyone who inspires you but you could also write it to Norman Messenger if you want.
If you could write a letter to Norman Messenger, the explorer who discovered The Land of Neverbelieve, what would you say to him? Does he inspire you? What questions would you ask him? What can you tell him about what you have 'discovered' in The Land of Neverbelieve?
Don't forget to get an adult to send a picture of your work and the finished poster to your teacher via the class email address . It would be lovely to have some up in the Hall of Fame and you may even get a Golden Ticket.
You are all getting a little bit tired now. Well done if you have managed to do your reading, writing, spelling and maths activities.
If you would like some more things to do here are some ideas:
- Make your own map of a place like The Land of Neverbelieve (it can be as strange as you like - remember Neverbelieve is shaped like a dog!)
- Create a poster persuading people to come to the Land of Neverbelieve for their holidays (remember to talk about all the amazing, plants, animals and places)
- Draw a picture of the land of Neverbelieve - add as many strange and wonderful plants and animals as you can. Remember, the only limit is your imagination.
If you have started it, continue with the sportingage PE challenge. If not, why not start now?
This is a PE challenge that you can complete at home. Follow the instructions and input your scores for the first session. Your will then receive a sporting age score. Follow the practice activities on the website and find out if your scores improve in the next few weeks. Good luck!
