Welcome to our class page.

Here is an overview of the curriculum our children will be covering this year.

Mrs Barker says hello!

Angela Walley (a.walley) on: Year 3 and 4 Class Blog - Home Learning

Good morning!

I hope you are all happy and well – I miss you all!

Mrs. Walley hasn't sent me my homework pack yet so I've been playing in my garden and greenhouse. I have sewn some vegetable seeds for my allotment and my broccoli seedlings are already growing. I have also sewn sunflower seeds and other flower seeds for my front garden.

When I tidied my back garden (because as you know, I like things neat and tidy,tidy and neat) I put all of the dry twigs and leaves into a tub and a female blackbird has been taking them for her nest. Watching her reminded me of our guided reading text and I have also seen a wren looking for insects in my daffodil pots, and blue tits on my bird feeders.

I am looking forward to standing my amazing card in my lounge window for everyone to see when it's my birthday next week.

Have an amazing Easter holiday and don't forget to send us your photos and pictures. I would love an NHS rainbow or two for my window if any of you have time to create one- if you send a photo to Mrs Walley then she will pass it on to me.

Lots of love

Mrs. Barker.x

I have had some great photos of you working hard at home.

Here are Auden's to share:

He helped his dad make these fantastic raised borders.

He has read these 7 books by C S Lewis!

Plus he has been keeping fit by walking and his cat Ginger joined in on the 3km walk!

More My Maths Added

Hello everyone,  I do hope you are keeping well and enjoying spending time with your families.

I have put some new My Maths activities on for you all to access.  Again, I have put a longer date on them so you are able to try them again if you want to improve your scores.  Don't forget the games that you can also access through My Maths.  

Teachers are busy looking at a different way to set you work for after the Easter Holidays as we may have to stay at home longer than we all first predicted.  We are looking at a computer platform at the moment and we will let you all know as soon as possible, what this is, what to expect and when this will happen.

In the meantime, keep working through your packs and being creative.  I have loved seeing the photos of what you have been up to at home.

I would also like to you make something out of a plastic bottle.  

(You could even make the bird feeder that we wrote instructions for in the last week, if you haven't already.)

Or something totally different! See what ideas you can come up with and send me some pictures to share on here.

We made a bubble snake maker which was fun:

1) Cut the bottom of the bottle off. 2) Stretch a piece of fabric or a sock over this end and secure with an elastic band or piece of string.

3) Take the lid off bottle. 4) Dip the fabric end of the bubble maker into a tray of bubble mixture and blow!


Can you plant a sunflower? (If you have any seeds)  We could have a competition and check on their progress.

If you don't have any sunflower seeds then try to grow something else or care for a house plant.

Keep up the good work Class 4!

Keep in touch as I'm missing seeing you all!

Mrs Walley

Well done to Josh for cheering us all up with this fabulous daffodil picture.

Don't forget to email me any of your creations.

Let's keep learning!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all staying safe and positive!

I added 3 My Maths tasks for you to complete at some point.  I have given the deadline a long date so you can access them or retry them as necessary.  I will aim to set 3 per week but don't forget about the other games and activities that are on there too if you need more maths.

For English, why not write a diary about what you do each day or how you are feeling during these different circumstances?  You could be the next Ann Frank!

You have been given my email address if you need to ask anything further about your pack work or if you need further ideas. I will try to share some topic ideas and other fun learning activities on here but I am aware you have quite a few ideas that were sent home last week so I won't bombard you at the moment.

Try to think about what your daily routine will be.

In our house, we are starting each school day with a live PE lesson with Joe Wicks on Youtube, then a morning of various school tasks with a couple of breaks when needed.  We are then trying to learn outdoors in our garden and do other fun learning activities plus learning life skills too.  Try to have some routine of learning, plan to stay healthy and don't forget to do some things that make you happy too.  

Choose a book that you are going to read cover to cover.  There is always the Secret Garden to finish too and maybe a good one to share as a family.  (There is also the film coming out after Easter and it's always great to read the book first.)

Feel free to send me any pictures of you learning or trying new things via my email address, I would love to see them.

Take care everyone and keep in touch!

Mrs Walley
