I've changed up how the English work is presented as the 'blue work' this week is mostly just additional challenges for the writing in red work. So it's easier to have them all on the same page.
If you find that easier to read in general let me know and I'll make the maths work the same.
As always please get in touch (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
Mr E + Karen
Due to the current situation we understand that children might not be able to attend school for various reasons. Below is some work for them to do while at home. Everything here we've covered in class and should be able to be completed independently.
Apologies for the delay! This half term is going to be a rather musical affair! Reading, writing and making music in all kinds of ways. Moving on from Ancient Greece we're going to be looking into classification and food chains in science.
As requested by the kids, here is the super short version of some Greek myths we've been learning.
Theseus and the minotaur
Theseus finds out he is the son of a king because he finds a royal sword in a field behind his house
He travels to Athens to meet his Father
His Father has remarried a witch who tries to kill Theseus, but his Father saves him
The witch curses them
Athens is sending 14 young men and women every year to Crete to be sacrificed to the Minotaur
Theseus decides to stop this, so he takes the place of one of the men
At Crete Theseus meets Ariadne who helps him by giving the key to the labyrinth and some thread to help him find his way back
Theseus kills the minotaur only to find out it’s Ariadne’s brother!
Orpheus and Eurydice
Orpheus is an amazing musician, even the gods love his music.
He finds a forest nymph called Eurydice and falls in love.
Eurydice gets bitten by a snake and dies.
Orpheus decides to go to the land of the dead to bring her back.
He meets Hades and his wife Persephone
Persephone is so impressed by Orpheus’s music that she convinces her husband to let Eurydice go.
There is a condition, Orpheus cannot look back as he leaves, or Eurydice will return to the land of the dead forever.
Orpheus is convinced that nobody is following him, eventually he turns around.
He sees Eurydice getting drawn back into Hades
Welcome to year 4!!!
Time to learn about the Ancient Greeks, secure our addition and subtraction skills, discover what eats what and hopefully get a bit taller!
For parents who want to help their children out this year, Times Tables are hugely important. If you get any time at home to make sure that your child is confident then you will give them an advantage this year!
Myself (Mr Etheridge) and our wonderful TA, Miss Kattenhorn (Karen) bid you welcome and look forward to a great year!
