Welcome to Skylarks with Mr Dines and Mrs Whyte
All home learning for Year 4 can be accessed through your Child's Microsoft Teams!
Home-learning Week Beginning 4th January
Good Morning Year 4. Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break and Father Christmas brought you all well-deserved presies! This is not the start to the year that we were hoping for but it will be okay and the main priority is that you are all safe! I miss you all and would love nothing better than to have our Skylarks team all together in our classroom.
However, we know that everyone's health is the most important thing to prioritise right now. Please see the document below for some home-learning to start the week. It is three days worth of learning, some things you should repeat each day, some things will take you two or three days, some things are one-off tasks. I will be teaching the children of key-workers and vulnerable children full-time so I am sorry that I will not be able to contact you all directly immediately. Once the Motcombe staff team have had a couple of days to make adaptations to our lessons and our timetables etc, I will put more information on here for you as I hope to do some live video lessons with you all on our MicrosoftTeams group later in the week, including starting our new, fun topic together! If you need your logins for mathletics, read theory and any other platforms, either your parents can email the office or you can logon to your school email account and email either myself or the office to ask for them.
I am thinking of all of you and look forward to seeing you via video lessons soon - watch this space!
Keep smiling you legends
Mr Dines and Mrs Whyte
PS - scroll down further to see some VERY EXCITING news!
Over the Christmas holidays as you know, we were expecting a new child into our family. This child made their appearance on the 23rd December and was a little Baby Boy. (well done to those who guessed right!) His name is Percy and he weighed a whopping 10lbs 4onz!
In Skylarks we have been investigating sound and how it is made. We were able to use lots of things to help us hear and see how sound passes through the air using vibrations.
The children have worked exceptionally hard on making Hadrian's wall. They used many different techniques to create their master pieces and then used painting techniques to add detail. We then stood on either side of the wall, having put them all together, and stood in Scotland and England as if we were really there.
