Class Owls

 Hoot hoot!

I hope you’ve all had a lovely half term in the beautiful sunshine. It really has been glorious. At the moment, Year 4 and Year 5 are still continuing home learning, although this will look slightly different for this half term.  On this Owl’s page, there will be a key skills to practise – the really fundamentals which will help your progress across the curriculum. For ‘topic’ work, we have created a whole school ‘wonderful world of water‘ page which  can be reached using this link, or be found on the home learning tab. This has been created to help families work together on one project, despite having different age children. It has also allowed us to spread the management of the home learning tasks and teaching across the members of our staff. I will be teaching a group in school this half term, so may not be setting all of the work or replying to all emails. I will check each week as love seeing what you’ve been up to and try to get back to you all at some point, but it might be another member of staff who replies regularly. Keep up the great work though – I have been so impressed with your commitment and enthusiasm, and sure you will continue in the same vein this half term.  

Please e-mail pictures and work to owls@alpington.norfolk.sch.uk.  Please don’t send anything you don’t give permission to be posted on the Owls page of the website.

ENGLISH

Continue to practise your spellings – look, cover, write, check! Also find the definitions using a dictionary and use accurately in good sentences. Click on the link below. I have included 4 week worth.

Green 4 weeks

Please continue to read as much as possible. Discuss the story and the characters with an adult. If you and a friend choose the same book, you could always talk about in over the phone or on video chat. This is a good way to explore the characters and story line. These questions might be useful…
