Friday 17th July
Good morning Y4! You've made it...your final day of learning activities on the Y4 blog! Well done to all those who have completed the tasks set during this unprecedented period - we are all extremely proud! We look forward to seeing you at the picnic next week :-)
You have now written your fantastic ‘wishing-story’ narrative using fabulous vocabulary and suspense writing to engage the reader!
Hollywood are so impressed with your story that they want to produce it into a film – it will be screened at all Vue cinemas across the country…how exciting!
To promote and advertise your film, you need to design a ‘Film cover/poster’.
Your maths activity involves consolidation questions based on the learning that you have completed - position and direction. Complete the questions attached.
Your SPaG focus will look at 'Fronted Adverbials in Paragraphs' and continued spelling of 'Y3/4 Spellings' - these tasks are to be completed across the final week!
Please find attached your final week of afternoon activities - as always, these are to be completed throughout the week at your leisure! :-)
The Padlet - Shout outs!
Hello everyone, Mr McAuley here with exciting news about the Lock-Down Writing Competition! It is the moment you have all be waiting for, who will be receiving the prizes for their efforts?
Firstly, I want to say a huge “thank you” to everyone who got involved and wrote a poem on the theme ‘Fauna’. I have never received so many entries to a writing competition before and the quality of the writing was truly exceptional; they really made me very proud to be a teacher here at Chilton. I would also like to thank all the parents who supported their child with this project, your support and kind messages were greatly appreciated.
Therefore, Martyn and I had an incredibly difficult task deciding who will be crowned winners. I’ll start by announcing the ‘shortlist’ for each Key stage. These poems really stood out and any one of them could have won. Martyn and I spent a lot of time deliberating over every one. Each of these poems will receive a small prize when you return in September.
KS1 – Shortlist
- Sophie Furiel
- Evie Beaumont
- Jessica Kirkaldie
- Freddie Elliot
- Ned Clements
KS2 – Shortlist
- Finn Gardner
- Nadia Curtis
- Finley Munsen
- Rose and Emily Young
- Evie Field
- Bradley Kirkaldie
Martyn Harvey wanted me express his thanks for all of these entries, he felt all of these poems were of such high quality that they could be dropped straight into his new book ‘Bugs, Beasts and Biscuits’. All of these children will receive a small prize in September when you return.
But now to announce the winners and runners-up.
Winner – Ned Clements.
1st runner-up – Sophie Furiel.
