Hi everyone. Thank you very much for those who completed all of their homework last week. I was notified that some children could not remember their login details for the online learning platforms. In response to this, I have given the children a sheet which contains all of their login details. Homework has again been set online in line with how home learning was being set during the lockdown. I have set you the following which needs to be completed by Thursday 6th May:

  • Maths - Logon to Mathletics and complete the assigned activities relating to the work on decimals we have been completing in class. There are 5 activities. https://login.mathletics.com/
  • Reading - Read your reading book everyday and make sure you are filling in your reading record daily. Please also get this signed by a parent/carer at least once a week. I would also like you to read one book on MyOn and complete the corresponding quiz. Remember your login details are the same as Accelerated Reader. https://www.myon.co.uk/login/index.html
  • English - Logon to PurpleMash and complete the assigned activity on fronted adverbials. https://www.purplemash.com/sch/standrewsm30
  • Spellings (Summer 1 Week 2 Suffix - ive ) - I have uploaded your spellings for the week on the right under the Homework tab. There are 3 groups of spellings. You only need to learn your groups spellings. There is a list of your groups on the same document. You may practise however you wish. You can print it off or you can simply practise on paper. I will not be collecting it in but will assess if you have practising them through our spelling test.

If you have any questions. Please let me know. All homework needs to be completed by Thursday 6th May.

Thanks.

Hi year 4. I hope you all had a wonderful and well deserved half term break. Hopefully it gave you time to do things that you enjoy with your family. We have a very busy and uncertain half term ahead where I am sure we are all waiting for Boris to make his announcement in regards to the opening of schools. All we can do until then is keep working hard like we have been with our home learning. I have added our home learning for the week. This half term, our theme is Rainforests. We will be looking at living things and their habitats in Science as well as looking at texts that are related to aspects of the rainforest in English and Reciprocal Reading. In Maths this week, you will be looking at Roman Numerals. 

In regards to "No Device Wednesday", I will give you more information about this in the morning zoom. I look forward to seeing you all on the Zoom at 9:15.

Here is the link that you need to access the book:

For the final week, we will be focusing on our comprehension skills in English and will be looking at Area in Maths. This week could you please complete all of the Maths activities on the worksheet. You will also notice that for our "No device Wednesday afternoon", there is nothing on your time table yet. I will talk us through this lesson on the Wednesday morning. Home learning is available on the right as usual. This weeks learning is now at the top to make it easy for you to find.

Hi everyone. Thank you for returning your packs on Friday and for attending the zoom calls every morning. It is lovely to see that most of you are engaging with the work everyday. Keep up the hard work! I have attached the home learning for the week on the right. Please remember that on Monday you need to watch the live assembly at 9am, the link is on the timetable. I will then do the zoom after the assembly has finished. Also, school will be closed on Tuesday so there will be no zoom call that day. However the home learning still needs to be completed as usual by yourselves. Normal timings will resume on Wednesday. We will also be doing something very exciting on Wednesday afternoon!

Stay safe.

Mr Sheikh.

Hi everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a well deserved break. The new year has started in a manner which none of us wanted. Unfortunately, as we have gone into another national lockdown, I will be uploading online learning on a weekly basis. Any worksheets supporting this will be available to collect from school. More information will be given later as to when and where the packs can be collected from. Can you please ensure you are completing all the work that has been set neatly on the worksheets or in the workbook provided. All work must be dated and have a LO. These must be underlined with a ruler. I will be checking on a regular basis to ensure that all learning is being completed.

I will also be available daily via zoom from 9:15-9:45 if you have any questions or there is anything that you would like to discuss. The link for the zoom meeting will be on the school's newsletter.

Thanks.

Mr Sheikh

 

Friday 18th December 2020

Hi again. I hope everyone is well. It has been an extremely busy and unusual term and I'm sure we are all ready for the Christmas break including myself. I have set the children some very exciting Christmas related activities to do over the break to ensure that they are recapping everything we have learnt. This can be accessed under the Homework tab on the right. 

Have a lovely Christmas and stay safe. I hope we have a better 2021 and I am looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday 6th January 2021.

Friday 6th November 2020

Hi everyone. Unfortunately as you are aware, Year 4 will be self isolating and returning to school on Tuesday 17th November. I have uploaded work on the website for the week that they will be self isolating. This is the work that we would have been doing if the children were in school. There is a timetable provided which has all the relevant links. I have also printed off any worksheets that the children need along with some paper to complete the tasks. These packs will be ready to collect on Monday 9/11/20. 

I look forward to seeing you all on Tuesday 17th November. 

Mr Sheikh.

 

Autumn 2 - 2020

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well and healthy. Once again I am very excited for the 7 weeks we have ahead leading up to Christmas. We have a very busy term with lots of things going on and I can't wait to get started.

There is a newsletter attached to the right that has all the information that you need to know about this half term.

Some key points:

Children should continue to be dropped off at 8:40 and collected at 3:15 from the ramped entrance on the KS1 yard.
PE will be on Thursday's where children should not bring in PE kits. They should come into school in "active uniform" for the day (their PE kits and a school jumper).
Children must bring their own water bottle each day and remember to take it home at the end of the day.
Due to the pandemic, parents evening will take place in the form of phone calls home. You should have all received your times before we broke up for half term. I will be ringing on Tuesday 3/11/20 between 9:30 - 11:30 and Wednesday 4/11/20 between 15:30 - 18:00. I look forward to speaking to you.
I am really looking forward to another busy half term ahead.

Mr Sheikh.

 

Friday 18th September 2020

Hello again. We have had a lovely first two weeks in Year 4 where we have completed a series of fun activities. We have had a lot of discussions about life during lock down and how it has made us realise all the things we are thankful for in life. Relating to this, we have been writing acrostic poems in our golden hour to do with being thankful and we have also made paper plates with our faces on where we have written all the things we are grateful for in life. It was a privilege to hear such beautiful things from the children. 

The children have also been working hard in Science where we have been looking at the topic of magnets and forces. The children have become Science experts by carrying out several fair tests using magnets. We have learnt what a fair test is and how it is important to keep some variables the same. I have been very impressed with everyone's participation.

We have also been doing some fantastic work in English, looking at The Lost Happy Endings. Everyone has been thoroughly engaged and I can't wait till the children write their own twisted narrative which of course will not have a happy ending!

I am looking forward to the rest of the term and have some fantastic lessons planned.

Mr Sheikh.

 

Autumn 1 - 2020

Hi everyone! It is so wonderful to have the laughter of our children fill the corridors of the school again. I am very excited for the year ahead. I can't wait to do so many fun things that I have planned. The first half term will be a busy one where we will be going over areas that were missed towards the end of Year 3 as well as learning the exciting new topics of Year 4. 

The "golden hour" will be full of those exciting topics that children love to do such as Art and activities to create some wonderful displays.  

There is a newsletter attached to the right that has all the information that you need to know about this half term.

Some key points:

  • Children should be dropped off at 8:40 and collected at 3:15 from the ramped entrance on the KS1 yard.
  • PE will be on Thursday's where children should not bring in PE kits. They should come into school in "active uniform" for the day (their PE kits and a school jumper).
  • Children must bring their own water bottle each day and remember to take it home at the end of the day.

I am really looking forward to working with such a wonderful class.

Mr Sheikh.
