MR SKELLON'S UPDATE MONDAY 13TH JULY
Hi Year 4! Hope you are all well. So we have reached your final week as Yr4...what a strange year. You have been amazing and it's been my honour and pleasure to be your teacher this year
Wow! So the decider for TTRS Yr 4 Battle is still going strong! The current scores can be found in the maths folder!!!
Thank you to those of you who sent in your spy stories for the 'Mission Possible' topic. There were some really imaginative ideas and great use of the activities and Yr4 writing mat to help you. Keep going now in the new 'Impossibly Possible Bookshop'...some really fun activities on the way!
I have changed the extra topic folder this week. Go to the new folder to find out what's going on There are a couple of activities so I am sure you'll find it interesting!
Just a reminder from me that your RE and Reading activities are weekly ones - so work through them carefully and send them in at some point.
I hope you are keeping up with your PE activities. PE with Joe is now three days a week, so focus on the activities from the link below or try some Cosmic Yoga!

You then send your results to the website and get a point which will be sent to the school. There will be a celebration day on 7th July where the winners will be announced!!
Don't forget that Mathletics, Literacy Planet and Times Tables Rockstars are all still active (if you need a login let me know). Alongside this, remember that the link below will take you to Year 4 on BBC Bitesize!
I have said it so many times but I am so proud of all of you. It has been a tough time but you haven't given up and it has been great to see all the work you complete and have a chance to say 'Hi!'.
Finally, remember that the best piece of work this week will end up in the star of the week folder!
Take care and keep working hard!!

Our new topic is...
Who's Your Mummy
Please find a link below to an amazing times tables website I have been using with the children in class.
It gives them the opportunity to focus on specific times tables as well as testing themselves against all of them. There are games they can use to help them and a really good plan for how they can develop their understanding and knowledge across the times tables we study in school.
Finally, there is a test section which is timed which will give them an experience of times tables against the clock!
Our focus next week will be the 7 times table!
Thank you for your support in this
We have been creating our own explanations to weird and wonderful questions!
They ranged from cheese eating aliens to bark creating maggots!!
Our Amazing 'Eggs-periment'!
This term we have been looking at the human body and focused on the digestive system and the teeth.
As part of our learning we looked at the types of teeth we have and the jobs they do when we eat.
We also investigated, working with Year 3, how things we eat and drink can damage our teeth and how important cleaning them is each day!!
Our 'eggs-periment' involved us putting eggs into different liquids (tea, coffee, coca-cola and water) and leaving them overnight. We then noted down changes that had happened to the eggs and thought about why those changes may have happened.
You can see this in action from the pictures below. An 'eggs-troadinary' time was had by all!!
