Homework 7.5.2021

Hello Class 4,

A massive thank you to all of the children who handed in their homework from last week on time. I really enjoyed reading your letters to Little Red Riding Hood. Hopefully, my explanation of the maths homework in school today helped with your understanding, I certainly found it easier to explain in person rather than on Seesaw.

Your homework for this week can be found once again on Seesaw:

Reading: We have spent a lot of time in school recently developing our inference skills and I would like you to continue this work at home with the task on Seesaw, which hopefully you will enjoy. Note to parents and guardians – the art to the children responding is for them to make plausible answers based upon what they can see in the picture and from the information in the text.

Maths: I have set separate yer group maths homework on Seesaw.

If you have any questions do not hesitate to speak to me in school.

Please ensure you submit your homework by 13.5.21

Class 4 – Speak live on BBC Radio Humberside

BBC Radio Humberside - BBC Radio Humberside Rewind

The secret is out!

This morning three of our children spoke to Amanda White as part of the Sally Fairfax breakfast show to promote our World Bee Day project as part of our careers curriculum (photos to follow).

California street shut down after 40,000 bees swarm from hotel | Bees | The  Guardian

Each class has been issued with £10 to improve the school site. Class 4 decided that they wanted to have a lasting impact that would come back every year even after the children eventually leave Brandesburton Primary School. The children were also aware that World Bee Day is on 20th May and that Bees are struggling yet they are really important for the environment for pollenating. Therefore, we decided that we wanted to plant lots of bulbs and bee friendly plants in the school grounds to attract more bees and to help them.

We know that £10 doesn’t go very far, so we were hoping that the local community could help us and bees through match funding.

How it works:

  • We are asking local businesses to either donate £10 or purchase the equivalent cost of bulbs or plants.
  • If possible we would like to plant half of the donated bulbs or plants on our site and then for you to plant the other half at your site, however we are willing to plant all bulbs and plants at our site it you don’t have anywhere.
  • With the aim of creating a beacon for Bees within the Humberside Radio area to help the environment.

Spelling and Multiplication 16.4.2021

As we move into the summer term we are going to focus on spelling rules and techniques in school, therefore I will no longer be issuing spellings to practice at home. However, we will still be carrying out weekly multiplication tests. This week I would like the children to practice their 12x tables, we will be testing next Friday.

As always I advise using the topmarks website:

Homework W.C 16th April

Today in art, we have been learning about perspective by exploring the work of Japanese artist Hokusai and his 36 views of Mount Fuji.  In addition to this, we used our map reading skills to locate Asia, Japan and finally Mount Fuji.

For your homework I would like you to spend some time researching Mount Fuji, I am going to be quite open about the content, but things that you might want to find out are (although I would like to find out lots of different information):

  • How high is mount Fuji?
  • Where is mount Fuji?
  • What type of mountain is it?
  • When did it last erupt?

Presenting your research:

You could:

  • Create a fact file.
  • Create a vlog.
  • Create a poster.

These are just suggestions I am very open to how you present your work; the choice is yours.

Please submit your homework to Seesaw by Thursday 22nd April.

Here are some websites that you could use:
