We are looking forward to seeing all your hard work and fun as usual.  Remember to email pictures of your work and pictures of you have fun to year4@holycrossprimary.thurrock.sch.uk

Before half term we focused on short writing.  Over the next few weeks we are going to be writing at length to get you ready for Year 5.  Your English lesson should take 1 hour each day. 

10 minutes to think and plan.

40 minutes to write.

10 minutes to edit and improve.

You need to remember to use your neatest, cursive handwriting.

Make sure you use a variety of punctuation - A . , ! ?

Use all your grammar knowledge and check your spelling.

Write in paragraphs - start a new paragraph when something new happens.

You should be working towards writing at least an A4 page by the end of your 40 minutes.

We can't wait to read your work!

YOGA

As well as a topic lesson everyday, we thought it would be fun to try a little bit of Yoga each day to help us focus.  

Give it a go and send in your pictures of you and your family doing the Yoga poses.

LEARNING INTENTION:   Building bridges of friendship.

 

A bridge needs to be built from both sides.  A bridge must be strong enough for people to walk on.  Bridges span or stretch across things.

A bridge needs to be cared for and looked after otherwise it will just fall down.  

 

A bridge of friendship

When I started school, I met Charlotte.  She was standing by a table looking shy.  I said, “Hello I’m Poppy!” and she said, “Hello!”.  We were friends from then on.  We sat at the same table to do our work.  We both liked ICT best in school and we worked on it together.  Charlotte is good at art so she helped me, I’m good at science so I helped her.  We shared jokes and laughed together.  We were also friends with Lucy and Will.  I liked Charlotte, but then things changed.  Charlotte went and sat by Emily one day to share her new book.  I thought she would come back and sit by me, but she didn’t.  At playtime, she stayed with Emily and I played with Lucy and Will.  I wondered how I could build a bridge of friendship to Charlotte.

 

A friendship is like a bridge between people -  it needs to be strengthened, maintained or repaired.

 

SOME KEY QUESTIONS

  1. What brought Charlotte and Poppy together as friends?
  2. Why do you think the friendship faded?
  3. What do you think about Poppy?
  4. What do you think Charlotte might do?
  5. Has anything like this ever happened to you?
  6. How did you feel?
  7. What did you do to mend the friendship?

 

  • Write an ending to the story, showing how Poppy could build a bridge of friendship to Charlotte and why they acted like that.
  • Individually make a list of friends you have had for a long time.  For each friend, record:
      • How did you meet your friend?
      • What made you become friends?
      • What do you do together?
      • What do you like about your friend?
