Hi Class 6,
So today marks the end of our first week of working in a different way. I've loved seeing lots of pictures on our school Facebook page of you working hard at home and trying all the activities we have sent. I'm also pleased to see lots of you doing other things like playing in the garden, colouring pictures and doing the Joe Wicks PE workout - keep it up!
I have attached some ideas for next week's home learning. These can be done in your book or printed off if you are able. Please keep sending me pictures of your work either through email Y4@woodlands.academy or on the Facebook page.
Enjoy the weekend!
I hope to see you all very soon,
Home learning - wb 30.3.20
Class 6 - here's my recipe for chocolate chunk cookie which I made today with Joe. They taste amazing!
I have put the recipe on our page for you to try if you want, I'd love to see some of your pictures.

A reminder that if you need to contact me or send me photos of your child's work please use Y4@woodlands.academy
As part of our topic 'Misty Mountain Sierra' we looked at charcoal drawings of the Rocky Mountains. We watched a video by Gene Shaw, a designer and illustrator, and followed his step-by-step instructions to create our own charcoal mountain ranges. We think they look pretty good!
Parent Shared Afternoon - 5.2.20
We loved having our grown ups in class this afternoon to help us with our art work. Our project this term is Misty Mountain Sierra and we created shadow pictures of mountains. We used watercolours to create a sunset background, and then used black paper to create the mountains. It was a lovely afternoon with lots of parents, grandparents and siblings coming in to school to support us with our work.
Thank you to everyone who took the time to join us in class 6 today.
Pictures of our master pieces to follow - when they are dry!
Fantastic homework from Mackenzie, Domenick and Kassidi for our new project.
Well done guys!
I am very excited to be back working in Y3/4, both with new children and those who I had the pleasure of last year. Our new project this term is 'Misty Mountain Sierra' and we will be focusing on the big question of: Can I reach the summit?
The project has a geography focus, although pupils will still receive lessons within all curriculum subjects. Please see the attached curriculum map.

Spooky Sagas Competition
Last year every child in class 6 had the opportunity to write their own 'Spooky Saga' to be entered into a competition.
The best stories received were looked over by a panel of authors and the most creative and imaginative stories were chosen to be published. The 'Young Writers Est' received in excess of 22,000 entries and 8 children in our class have been chosen!
A big well done to everyone who took part and I look forward to reading those 8 stories in a published book very soon!
A reminder to parents that the permission slips and the attached information for the story to be published in the book needs to be sent back by the 15th of February.

The spellings for this week are as follows:
The children are given their spellings on a Monday and tested on a Friday.
