Good afternoon!

Last week your Music project challenged you to make your own instruments out of household items. Here at school we have been doing just that!

Ethan and Lewis created this learge strumming instrument whilst Grace created a similar, smaller instrument. Make sure you watch with the sound on!

Changes for September

You may have already heard about some of the changes waiting for them when you come back in September.

Your new teacher for Year 5 will be Mrs Risk and sadly you won't see me at Townfield anymore as I will be at my new school just down the road in Bromborough.

I'm going to miss you all lots but I know you will have an amazing time with Mrs Risk and you know Mrs Dixon will keep me updated on everything you get up to!

You've got two weeks left now of Year 4 so keep up the hard work! I'm super proud of you all.

I'm hoping now that the emails are fixed, some of your P.E. projects will start to come through.

Here is Oliver's. He completed research on Rob McCracken. Who did he coach? Read it and find out!

Don't forget to scroll down and try out this week's R.E. project!

Hi Cinnamon Bears!

Last week, all the schools on the Wirral had some problems with their emails so if you are wondering where your amazing P.E. projects are, don't worry! I will put them on here as soon as the emails are working again.

Good morning everyone,

The weather is very indecisive at the moment isn't it! Yesterday we had glorious sunshine and then torrential rain. 

I've been looking back at the children who have been chosen as Golden Learner of the week already. 

So far we've had...

- Lewis C

- Grace

- Oliver 

- Maddox

Keep working hard because I look at all of your work and think about who is being resilient and responsible. Could you be the next Golden Learner?

On our Year 4 class pages you will see Oscar and Oliver's P.E. projects from last week. Has anyone else sent theirs into the office? If you have, write a comment and I will try and find your work!

If you look left <<< you will find instructions for this week's R.E. project, have you tried it yet?

Today we've chosen this story for you:

https://www.storylineonline.net/books/tale-of-two-beasts/

Listen carefully to the whole story and then let me know what you think!

Did anybody watch any of the football on the TV yesterday? Last week there was also an athletics meet shown on the BBC. It took place in an empty stadium with no crowds and some of the races only had one athlete in! If there are any more coming up I will post the link so you can watch if you want to. 

Don't forget, below this box there's paper work for you to do too if you'd like.

Have a great day everybody,

Hello again!

I have found this 'Positive thinking diary' which I thought would be nice for you to complete if you can print it off. If you don't have a printer, why don't you make your own on some spare paper?

Today on Purple Mash you have a symmetry task and this week's spellings to complete. These are also attached below.

Here is a lovely story for you to enjoy:

https://en.calameo.com/read/000777721491c43af25b0?authid=kd2g9vDlrvUc

It focuses on empathy and considering the feelings of others. Is this something you do?

Good morning everyone!

I hope you had a great week off in the sun.   
If you go onto the school website today you will find this week's DT project. It looks like a fun one!
 
Today you have Chapter 5 of The Sleeping Volcano to read and a Maths activity called Dividers. You have to target each number with the correct divider. For example, if you have 3 loaded in your calculator, you can only fire it at a number that can be divided by 3 (is in the 3x table) = 3,6,9,12. If you have a number in your calculator which isn't a multiple of any numbers floating above, you just have to fire it into the air so that the number in the calculator will change.
 
Story time
Today we have found the next section of Roald Dahl's James and the Giant Peach for you:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HVO7sLEqvBU

Are you enjoying the story so far?

Have a lovely day!

Hi everybody!

Today we have planned a task for you all about Martin Luther King Jnr. Use the video and powerpoint below to research him and then complete the task on Purple Mash.

Why don't you ask your grown ups what they know about Martin Luther King Jnr? 

He is a very important historical figure!

Remember to check with an adult before you use YouTube.

Aaryan hasn't stopped working!

Aaryan had produced this detailed powerpoint about Kolkata. I really enjoyed finding out out interesting facts and I liked seeing Aaryan pop up in the photos!

Here is Aaryan's Science project. What a great idea to have a second tail to help the bird if it gets tired!

Aaryan science

This week's project had a World War Two focus and so Aaryan has made his very own spitfire plane. I wonder how far it can fly?

Good morning Cinnamon Bears.

I hope you had a great weekend!

Today on Purple Mash you have a Maths activity based on area. You must work out the area shaded for each shape by multiplying the length by the height e.g. 4cm x 2 cm = 8cm²

Your first story this week is actually a short poem called ‘Don’t judge a book’.

https://www.freechildrenstories.com/dont-judge-a-book-1

I really enjoyed this poem because it made me think again about some of the judgements I make when I first see things. What did you think of the poem?

Golden Learner of the week     

Last week we had amazing home learning from:

-Alice     -Anya     -Lewis C      -James

- Scarlett     -Leo     -Oliver     -Maddox

- Aaryan     - Noah     -Lucy     - Jacob

- Esme     - Millie     - Isaac     - Lucy

Our golden learner of the week has been working hard all through lock down and I’ve seen a huge improvement in her writing because she has put in so much effort and has edited every piece of writing she’s completed….Well done Grace!

History Project

If you look left, you will see the details of Mr Hughes' History project. It is all about World War Two so I know that Noah will definitely love this one! I can't wait to see what you all create.

Wednesday 20th May

Hello everyone,

On Monday we chose this poem for you:

https://www.freechildrenstories.com/dont-judge-a-book-1

We hope you enjoyed it. Did it make you think about first impressions?

For the rest of this week’s stories we have found an amazing reading of Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach:

Section 1:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29LDBdpNMRc

Section 2:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eX3Q5y8Dz58

Each section is quite long so don’t feel like you should listen to them all in one go. We love Roald Dahl stories so we hope you enjoy this!

Today the weather is supposed to be absolutely beautiful so try and go outside if you can! Maybe you could find some shade and read a book outside?  

Have you seen Mr Hughes’ History project? Look left <<<< It is very exciting!

I know some of you have said your adult has emailed your work in to the office but I haven’t put it on the website. If it’s not gone on the website that means I haven’t been sent it! If this has happened to you please comment or message me on Purple Mash and I will try and check what the problem is. I want to see all the amazing work you are doing!

Have a great day,

Thursday 7th May

Good morning Cinnamon Bears.

I hope you managed to enjoy some of the sun yesterday!

Your Maths activity is still focusing on time. Choose 6 clocks then write the time for each and explain what happens at that time.

Today we would like you to do some persuasive writing so we have set you a poster task. Design and write a poster persuading people why it is important to exercise during lock down.

Think about:

- Where they could exercise

- Who they could do it with

- Why it is important

- What to do if they don’t like it

Remember to be really persuasive and use rhetorical questions and exaggeration.

If you look on the right >>> you will find Oliver’s brilliant animation project! Have you tried it yet? Find Mrs Ali’s instructions on our class page and have a go! You can also find the instructions for this week’s Geography project at the top of this page.

Have a great day,

Miss Owen smiley

Wednesday 6th May

Good morning everybody. It looks like the sun has got its hat on today! 

For English, today we would like you to complete the word combo activity on Purple Mash. You need to select the word types and combine them together to make phrases and then sentences. On the sentence section, if you click on the square at the top it will generate a word bank for you.

In Maths, your activity is to sort timings into am or pm. Can you think of a way to remember which is which? I say to myself: am = at morning, pm = past morning.

Story time

Today the story we have chosen is ‘The stellar one’ by Daniel Errico:

https://www.freechildrenstories.com/the-stellar-one-1

You can listen to the story being read or you can read it yourself underneath.

We hope you like it!

Have you started the Geography project yet? Look on the left if you haven't!

Have a lovely day,

Miss Owen smiley

 

Monday 4th May

Good morning Cinnamon Bears, I hope you had a nice weekend.

This week in Maths we are going to start by looking at time. Look carefully at the clocks and choose which time they are showing. Think carefully though because the numbers around the clock face are in Roman numerals! Maybe you could draw a clock on paper to help you first or ask an adult to practise with you before you start.

Below are your spellings and these are also saved on Purple Mash.

Today for your story we have chosen ‘The atrocious fairy tale’.

https://www.freechildrenstories.com/the-atrocious-fairytale-1

What does atrocious mean? Did you fine this story confusing? Were there any characters that you liked?

Following on from the brilliant Science and Computing projects, this week we have a Geography project! Look on the left to find the details. I can’t wait to see them and remember you can send me your old projects any time!

At the end of this week, I am going to choose a golden learner of the week! This might be someone who has completed the most tasks, or someone who has put a lot of effort into one particular piece of work. Some of our top learners last week were:

- Maddox   - Noah   - Anya 

 - Grace   - Oliver   - Alice

Well done to you all!

Keep working hard this week and see who gets golden learner of the week!

Have a great day,

Miss Owen smiley

Friday 8th May is VE Day!

Happy Friday Cinnamon Bears!

Today is VE day so we have set you a task which will allow you to learn some facts about this important historical day and then write a newspaper article.

We have also set you Maths and English if you are still eager to complete some work!

In Maths we have set you one final time activity. To complete this you have to draw lines from one clock to the other to show the time in 3 hours. Click the dot under the clock and drag it to the other dot and this will draw the line.

For English we would like you to show us the difference between pronouns and proper nouns. Proper nouns are names and pronouns are words used instead of names such as she or they. Think about if the sentences use pronouns or nouns within them. Then, re-write each sentence using the opposite!

If you look on the left, you will be able to see Alice & Oliver's Geography projects. Why don't you have a go and send it to the school office!

Have a fabulous weekend,

Miss Owen smiley

Oliver's computing project

Here is Oliver's fabulous computing project! I think it's great that he's tried different ways of animating. Have you tried the project yet?

Scroll down to find Mrs Ali's instructions!

O video.MOV

Tuesday 5th May

Today we have set you two Maths activities. The first is another matching/memory game. Choose a card then match the time to the correct clock face. For the second activity you must order the times from earliest to latest but be careful because some of them are in 24hour clock. Count forwards from 12 to work out the pm time so 1pm is 13:00 because 12+1 = 13.

Your English activity today focuses on word types. Think very carefully about the word types used and drag the words into the correct box. Use this list to help you

Noun = name, place or thing

Pronoun = a word used instead of a name

Preposition = a word that describes the position of something, the way it is done or the time it happened.

Adjective = a describing word

Have you started the Geography project yet? Look left if you haven’t!

Have a great day,

Oliver's Science project

Have a look at Oliver's Science project, did you know any of these ostrich facts already? I certainly didn't! Welll done Oliver!

Last week's bird project

Wow Cinnamon Bears, I have absolutely loved seeing what you created for our science project last week!

Lucy made an amazing bird house but she thinks all the cats have scared the birds away so far!

L birds

Anya created this imaginitave Quinn bird. It's so realistic I had to research and check it wasn't a real bird!

Alice also created her own bird, I love the pouch for the baby!

A bird project

Finally, Jacob was the first to complete his project. Here he is creating his bird box, I love the rainbows he's painted on it!

JG bboxJG bird box(1)

If you have done a bird project, ask a grown up to send your work to schooloffice@townfield.wirral.sch.uk 

In the subject box write 'Year 4 Miss Owen' so that I can see all of the fabulous things you create!

If you haven't, don't worry because you still can! Scroll down to find the powerpoint with Mr Rosser's instructions and have fun!

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Monday 27th April

Good morning Cinnamon Bears.

 I hope you had a lovely weekend.

Attached are this week’s spellings and over on Purple Mash there is a maths activity.

For this task you must find the perimeter of each shape. Remember, perimeter means the total line of the outline. The outline is what goes around the edge so if a farmer needed to know how much wood to buy for a fence for his field, he would need to measure the perimeter of the field!

Count round the edge of the shapes or add all the lengths together.

Story time

Today we’ve also chosen a new story for you. It is called ‘Catching the moon’.

https://www.storylineonline.net/books/catching-the-moon-the-story-of-a-young-girls-baseball-dream/

At the start of the story, what is Papa thinking? Does he encourage Marcenia’s baseball  ambitions? Why/why not? How do you think Marcenia felt when she was told that girls weren’t allowed at baseball camp? How does Papa feel by the end of the story?

I think this is my favourite story so far because I love Marcenia’s determination. And it is a true story. I hope you like it too!

Have a great day,

Miss Owen smiley

This week, Mrs Ali has created an exciting computing project for you! Remember to think carefully about e-safety and always tell a grown up what you are doing.

Have fun and when you are finished, send your projects into the school office so I can see!

Friday 1st May

Happy Friday Cinnamon Bears!

Remember to send your bird and animation projects to the school office!  schooloffice@townfield.wirral.sch.uk

Your Maths activity today is about horizontal and vertical lines.

Remember:

- Horizontal means straight across from left to right.

- Vertical means up and down from top to bottom.

For English, you have another grammar activity focusing on standard English such as ‘We were’ instead of, ‘We was’. Think carefully about this as often people say the wrong thing!

For the weekend we have chosen this story for you about Trisha, a girl who is finding things hard at school:

https://www.storylineonline.net/books/thank-you-mr-falker/

If you were Trisha’s friend, what would you say to her when she was finding reading difficult?

Have a lovely weekend,

Thursday 30th April

Good morning Cinnamon Bears!

Have seen all the brilliant bird projects that some of you have sent in? Look on the left of this page <<<< Also, Alice has finished her animation so go watch that video too!

Today you have two Maths activities again. The first is about properties of shapes. Think of a 3D shape in your head then answer the questions and the computer will try to guess the name of the shapes. The second game is another memory matching game for 2D shapes.

For English we would like you to practise using apostrophes. Remember, you only need an apostrophe if you are showing it belongs to somebody e.g. Jenny's bike

Or if two words are contracted together like do not = don't

If something belongs to more than one person the apostrophe goes after the s like this: They were the boys' bikes.

Have a lovely day,

Miss Owen smiley

Wednesday 29th April

Hello Cinnamon Bears!

Today we have set you two Maths activities as they are quite short and they are both about properties of shapes.

You are now on the final chapter of Animal Boy so we would like you to write a book review. Think carefully about the plot. Did you enjoy it? Would you recommend the book to a friend? Is there anything you would change?

Today we’ve also found another story for you to enjoy and if you want, you can choose to watch it with BSL too!

We hope you like it,

Tuesday 28th April

Good morning Cinnamon Bears.

Today your Maths activity is focused on 3D shapes. You have to match the image of the 3D shape to the correct name but this game also tests your memory as you have to remember what was under each card. I really enjoyed this game so I hope you do too!

In English, we have nearly finished with Animal Boy so read the chapter and complete the quiz. Would you recommend this book to a friend?

Have you started the computing project yet? I know Alice has already nearly finished hers so tomorrow I will show you her photos so far. I also have some more photos of your bird projects to put up.

Have a lovely day,

Miss Owen smiley

Week beginning Monday 20th April

Hello Cinnamon Bears.

I hope you all enjoyed your Easter holidays.

Today, we are setting you your first project which is a science task from Mr Rosser.

Read the instructions carefully and then ask a grown up to send your work to schooloffice@townfield.wirral.sch.uk 

In the subject box write 'Year 4 Miss Owen' so that I can see all of the fabulous things you create!

Have fun,

Miss Owen smiley

Good morning Cinnamon Bears.

Over on Purple Mash you have Maths and English activities to complete. Have you practised the spellings from yesterday?

The questions for chapter 1 of Animal Boy are ready for you to try, tomorrow we will load chapter 2 for you. Are you enjoying the story so far?

Your maths activity today focuses on factors again like yesterday! Numbers fly around space and you need to use your calculator to shoot factors at them. So if an 8 flies past, you could fire a 2 or a 4 at it because we know that 2x4=8. If 12 flies past, you have lots of choices because 3x4=12 and 2x6=12 so you could fire 2,3,4,6 or even 1!

Start on level one and see how you get on.

Story time

Today we have set you our first story. It is set in the USA in the 1960s when black people still experienced lots of racism and segregation. We have talked about this in class, remember Rosa Parks on the bus?

If you follow this link you will be able to watch ‘As fast as words could fly’ being read:

https://www.storylineonline.net/books/fast-words-fly/

What do you think of Mason? What troubles does he face? How would you feel if you faced the difficulties that Mason faced everyday? What message do you think this story is giving?

When you have finished the story, you could ask an adult to help you complete some of the activities here:

https://www.storylineonline.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/AsFastAsWordsCouldFly_ActivityGuide.pdf

I hope you enjoy the story!

20.04.20

Here are this week's spellings. Can you find a way to practise them outside? Make sure you discuss the meaning of the words with an adult as they are tricky this week!

Also, on Purple Mash today you will find a maths activity on division for you to try.

Have fun!

Miss Owen smiley

Happy Friday Cinnamon Bears!

Today you have another chapter of Animal Boy and a multiplication and division quiz to test your times tables before the weekend.

For our final story of the week we have chosen ‘Oh no George’. A story about a dog who is trying very hard to make good choices. On this website you can choose to watch with BSL signs too so you can even practise your signing while you listen. How amazing!

https://www.booktrust.org.uk/books-and-reading/have-some-fun/storybooks-and-games/oh-no-george/

If you feel like trying something creative over the weekend, take a look at what Grace made at home.

I love her cute, little leaf animals! Well done Grace!

Have a lovely weekend everybody,

Thursday 23rd April

Good morning Cinnamon Bears.

After you practised dividing by 10 yesterday, today we would like you to complete the quiz! Remember when you divide by 10, every digit shifts to the right and decreases in value (so your answer keeps the same digits but will be a smaller number).

Also today you have chapter 3 of Animal Boy and the quiz to complete afterwards. Why don’t you write a blog post telling us what you think of the story so far?

Story time

Today we have found another story for you to listen to. We have chosen ‘Here comes the Garbage Barge’.

You can listen to it here:

https://www.storylineonline.net/books/garbage-barge/

What was your first thought when you heard about the idea of the garbage barge? What is your opinion of Mr Stroffolino? Would you trust him? How do you think Captain Duffy was feeling throughout the journey? What is the important message in this story?

Once you have finished listening to the story, you could ask an adult to help you with these activities:

https://www.storylineonline.net/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/GarbageBarge_FamilyActivityGuide.pdf

Have fun!

Miss Owen  smiley

Wednesday 22nd April

Good morning Cinnamon Bears!

Today we would like you to practise dividing by 10.

Remember, when we divide by 10 the place value decreases so every digit moves to the right and is worth less (so your answer keeps the same digits but will be a smaller number).

For example, if you do 12.5 ÷ 10 the answer is 1.25 as each number has shifted to the right while it has been shared or divided into 10.

Today we also have chapter 2 of Animal boy for you to read and questions to answer afterwards. Tomorrow we will choose another story for you.

I hope you have started the science project on birds!

Have a lovely day,

Miss Owen smiley

Good morning Cinnamon Bears!

Did anybody listen to Noah on the radio yesterday? I thought he was fantastic!

Today would have been our last day in school before the Easter holidays.

Well done to Maddox and Anya who have started their own blogs already. For everyone else, remember on Purple Mash click on – sharing – my blogs. If you click on – shared blogs you will be able to see our Cinnamon Bears’ blog and leave a comment.

Today I have set for you our first story on Purple Mash. Once you have read chapter 1 you will be able to answer the questions too.

Over the two week holiday, I won’t be setting tasks for you but you can still write your blog, send me a message or play any other games on Purple Mash that you like. Remember to keep doing lots of reading and get some exercise. If you enjoy chapter 1 of ‘Animal Boy’ then I can keep setting new chapters for you to read too.

Have a lovely holiday,

Miss Owen  smiley

Firstly, a big well done to Anya, Lewis C, Maddox and Alice who have been on Purple Mash and written their story. One dojo point for you four! I loved reading them and have given you some feedback so that you can edit and re-draft like we do in school.

Today I would like you to try and set up your own blog. You can find our class blog on Purple Mash by clicking on - sharing - shared blogs - Cinnamon Bears' blog.

Leave a comment so I know you have found it!

Then, you can create your own blog to let us know what you have been up to. You can do that in - sharing - my blogs.

Have fun!

Week beginning 30th March 2020

31.03.20       

Story Time!

Hello Cinnamon Bears!

You can also find all of today's information on Purple Mash. 

Today I have written the first two sentences of a story and I want you to finish it! (It's at the bottom of this box.)

 

Don't rush this. Think about how we write stories in school; plan, first draft, edit and re-draft.

Think about:

* The setting - where is it?

* The characters - who is in it?

* The plot - what is going to happen?

 

Use my WILF to help you:

- Fronted adverbials

- Punctuation for speech

- Expanded noun phrases

- Abstract noun phrases (e.g. The great fire of hope)

 

When you have finished, you can add illustrations and give your story a title! If you look in your 2dos on Purple Mash, this has been saved in a special document with space for your pictures.

 

Here is the story start:

As he took two clumsy steps forward, he heard the roar of the crowd in the distance. His heart was a drum, pounding against his chest and sweat was pouring from his hands.

 

I can't wait to read them!

Miss Owen smiley

Good afternoon Cinnamon Bears.

Over on Purple Mash I have started a class blog for us.

On there I have also uploaded this week's spellings and set our first challenge.

Please contact the school office if you do not have your Purple Mash log in details.

Miss Owen smiley

23.03.20

Good morning Cinnamon Bears!

I have attached this week's spellings below.

Why don't you try to learn them outside in your garden?

- You could spell them on the ground using water and a paint brush.

- You could do shuttle runs and shout a letter out each time you get to one end.

- You could spell them using stones or twigs you find outside.

Try to be creative! How else could you practise this week's spellings?

Tag Rugby Coach

In our P.E. lessons we have been coached by Mr Cucchi from Birkenhead Park rugby club.

We have learned the basic skills of rugby such as passing backwards and dodging and we are starting to develop an understanding of tactics and game rules.

Cinnamon Sunflowers!

One of our cinnamon bears has brought in a sunflower from home which we have planted outside our classroom.

Do you have a sunflower you would like to bring in to add to our collection?

Class Timetable

On Wednesdays we have indoor and on Thursdays we have outdoor P.E.

Please ensure that children have plain jogging bottoms and a jumper for outdoor lessons during the winter months.

On Fridays we are lucky enough to have the fabulous Mrs Mayer teaching us music. Currently we are learning a Tudor composition.

Homework

On Mondays we give out spellings and magic maths which are then collected in and tested on a Friday.

This term, our magic maths focuses on the instant recall of times table facts so we are asking children to use Times Table Rock Stars or Purple Mash atleast 3 times a week.

TTrocks

Reading

Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week and we have recently introduced 'Strive for 5.'  This is where children who have read 5 times a week every week are in with a chance of winning a book token. If your child’s reading diary has 5 signatures in it for each week their name will be put into a draw.  The draw for this will be in the last week of the term. 

Children may want to read their own books which is fantastic but we also require them to read school books which are levelled accurately to ensure the development of decoding and comprehension skills. Even though you may feel that your child can now read independently, please ensure you are still finding the time to question them on their reading to develop their comprehension skills.

Bear of the day and the Golden Tie

Each day a child from the class will be chosen to bring home the Cinnamon Bear.  It will be given to a child who has demonstrated our three character traits of respect, responsibility and resilience.

For those children who have demonstrated these traits all week, there is a possibility of bringing home the golden tie. This is a Townfield honour and the golden tie winner will have their photo displayed by the school office all week!
