Week Commencing 11.05.20
It was lovely to catch up with you this week and hear how everybody is getting on. If I couldn’t get hold of you then please email with a time/date and I can speak with you next week. Here is this weeks home learning including Year 3 and 4 spellings to practise. Please practise these spellings during the week and have a spelling test on Friday to see if you can remember them. It is also important to revise previous spellings and the Year 3/4 statutory spelling list. There will also be 5 Purple Mash activities to do during the week set as 2Do’s on the Purple Mash website.
Please use the Birch email to contact me if you have any queries or questions. Enjoy your learning and have a lovely bank holiday weekend. Enjoy the sunshine!
RE - Sikhism-A religious story
Religious festivals often start with an old story. Here is the story of how the Guru started the Khalsa over 300 years ago.
The story is told using shadow puppets. The tradition of using shadow puppets goes back to long before there were videos and TVs, but it is still fun today. Use a black felt pen or a pencil to draw two scenes from the story here, in shadow puppet style. One scene should be called ‘danger’ and the other ‘commitment’.
Topic-I am Warrior ! (Science)
Did the Romans use toilet paper?
Horrible histories have some funny clips about Roman toilets.
Please carry out the science investigation and adapt it to what resources you have at home. Marmite may be used instead of chocolate spread!
