An ode to…

Thank you for sharing your odes this week. You have inspired me to write one of my own…

Oh, hardworking, resilient Y4 Rowling.

You are simply the loveliest of classes.

You bring a big smile to my face like a funny story, when I see your fantastic home learning.

I love the way that you have embraced the changes and challenges you have faced in the last few weeks.

When I see you again, and you are nearly Y5s, I will be so proud of all you have achieved.

You are the quite simply the best Y4 class at Totley Primary.

And, most importantly, you are mine, oh, wonderful Y4 Rowling!


Here are a few more to share…

AA – Ode to an ice-lolly

EM – Ode to Guinea Pigs

ES – Ode to Peanut butter

GR -Ode to ice cream

LF – Ode to chilli

Ode to Georgie

OS – Ode to waffles

RD – Ode to a Strawberry

ZC – Ode to Cake


Have a fabulous half term break, you deserve it!

Y4 Story Time

So, we’ve reached the end of our class story. I have really enjoyed this one (I hope you have too), so big thank you to Mr Barnes, who lent us his copy.

Did you know…? There are currently 65 million refugees trying to flee ongoing wars, man-made environmental disasters, economic destitution or political persecution (you may want to ask an adult to help you understand what these mean). That’s more than the total number of  refugees who fled Nazi persecution in WWII (UNHCR, 2016).

Final thoughts – here are some questions to think about, you might want to discuss them with an adult or sibling at home…

1.Have you ever  met a refugee kid?

If you have, have they ever told you their story?

If you haven’t, how would you try and help them if you did?

If you yourself are a refugee child, what is the hardest thing about meeting new people?

2. If you had to run away and leave your house and school behind forever, what 3 things would you take with you?

3.Most refugee children have to learn a brand new language very quickly after leaving their country, and find it very difficult to get used to the sounds and the way everyone is speaking. If you had to go to another country, where no one could speak your language, what would you like people to do to help you understand better?

4.Have you ever read any newspaper stories about refugees or heard grown-ups speaking about them? What words did they use to describe refugees, and how did they make you feel?

5.If you could give a refugee kid one gift to help make them feel happy, what would it be?

6.What do you think could be done to help stop the refugee crisis – and who would you ask to help?

7.And finally, if you could be famous and on the news for a single day, what action would it be for?

Happy Friday, Y4!

I hope you’ve all had a great week, I’ve seen some fantastic home learning this week. The good news is you can have the weekend off, and that next week is the final week of this half term, so almost time to put your feet up for a week (I know I will!).

Home Learning Packs

No big changes this week, the only thing you need to know is that every time I tried to add the French to the Tuesday pack, my computer crashed! So in the end, I gave up and it is a separate document below.

Spelling Shed

Hopefully you have all received your Spelling Shed login details. Spelling Shed is an online game where you can practise your spelling.

There are three kinds of game:

  • Practice – This is the main game type and use used for assignments etc.
  • Bee Keeper – Can you guess your words by choosing letters.
  • Buzz Words – Make words using random letter tiles.

Practice Games have four difficulties:

  • Easy – The word is shown, an audio clip is played and only the included letters are shown.
  • Medium – An audio clip is played and only the included letters are shown.
  • Hard – an audio clip is played and the included letters plus some random letters are shown.
  • Extreme – An audio clip is played and a full qwerty keyboard is shown. Letters must be correctly accented and capitalised.

Honeypots are earned by spelling words correctly in all game types. Additional upgrades can be purchased using honeypots. A bit like TT Rockstars, where you can buy things for your character.

I have set an assignment for you to play, which meansthat the words it is testing you on are the Y3/4 spelling words. This will run up until half term.

Here is a quick summary of what to do: Spelling Shed instructions

You can play on Spelling Shed on a computer, or you could download the app on to a tablet or mobile.

Have fun!
