Week Beginning 1st June

Hello Class 4

I hope you all enjoyed your half term breaks.

We left Shackleton and his crew in a cruel blizzard. This week, you will find out if they survived and if so, what their next move was. In science, it is the start of a new topic and you will discover how people decided to group living things. I know a lot of you are enjoying the Spanish lessons and this week, you will find out how to say the date. There is also a code cracking game to improve your computing evaluation and logic skills.

We have also been invited to take part in Worcestershire's Virtual Games. Usually, tournament winners are invited to a massive games at a local high school where they compete against all of the other winners from the Worcestershire districts. Because they have had to cancel this event, they are organising a Virtual Games for everybody in Worcestershire. The first event is the speed bounce, but there is also a flag/poster competition and a talent show to enter. Click on the link below to join in, but remember to check with parents first before you send in any of your results.

Hopefully, you are all feeling refreshed and ready to start your final half term of the year.

Keep smiling!

PS. Remember my email is I'd love to see some of your work.

PPS. Apologies. I forgot the spelling section. I've added it now.



Find out how large the James Caird actually was by looking at the image below. These approximate measurements should make it easier:

0.5 inches= 0.5m 

0.75 inches= 0.75m 

1 inch = 1m 


In science this term, we are going to classify living things into groups by looking at their similarities and differences. The first session is a recap of a few groups that you should know already: fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals, vertebrates and invertebrates. Watch the clips and complete the activities and quizzes.
