Lots of people remember musician Ray Charles today as he passed away on 10th June 2004. He was often referred to as "The Genius". Charles started losing his vision at the age of 5, and by 7 he was blind. He pioneered the soul music genre during the 1950s by combining blues, rhythm and blues, and gospel styles into the music he recorded for Atlantic Records. Here are some weblinks and videos about Ray Charles that you might find interesting:

Hi everyone! Its 23rd April 2020!

 

Does anyone know what day it is today? ( Apart from that it is Thursday!)…….

 

It is St Georges Day.

 

St. George’s Day has been celebrated on 23rd April since 1222. This is believed to be the date that he died in AD303.

 

He became the official patron of England in 1415 after Henry V won the Battle of Agincourt.

 

The legend of ‘Saint George and the Dragon’ tells of how he killed a dragon and saved a princess.

The tale of ‘Saint George and the Dragon’ is a legend. This means that some of it may be true; however, it may have been changed and embellished over time.

Keep reading every night, log into TT rockstars, Reading plus, Spelling shed and those who do IDL! ( we are checking!!)

Happy April Fools day!

 

What is April fools day?

 

April fools day is celebrated on 1st April.

•It should be light-hearted and funny to all involved, including  the victim.

•The pranks should not hurt anyone, cause harm or be illegal.

 

In England and some other English speaking countries, people follow the custom that pranks can only happen before 12 o’clock (noon). After then, anyone who tries to play a prank actually turns out to be the ‘April fool’!

 

Printed media and tabloids, including some newspapers and websites, report fake stories. 

 

 In 1957, to celebrate April Fools’ Day, the   

 BBC showed a film about the spaghetti 

 harvest in Switzerland. This managed to 

 fool a lot of viewers into thinking that  

 spaghetti grew on trees!

 

In 2015, a well-known supermarket said they were going to introduce trampolines in the aisles so that shoppers could reach the high shelves!! 

 

Last year Mrs Willshire was tricked by another teacher in Kensington Primary! She was told that Primark would open on 31st April and everything would be 50p!!!  surprise

 

Make sure that you are keeping up with your daily exercises! Your class teachers are! 

 

Can we remind you to log into TT rockstars and Reading plus regularly, we can see who has and has not completed their tasks!

 

Have a fantastic day everyone!

 

We are missing teaching you!

As part of out imaginary worlds topic in English, we were visited by author

Colgate Challenge 

 

In science we have been learning about teeth.

Why do we need our teeth? What do they do?

Very importantly we have been learning how to care for our teeth. Year 4 have started the Colgate challenge.
The Colgate challenge is a 30 day challenge where the children have to brush their teeth twice a day and then record it on their Colgate chart!

English:

We started year 4 using “Voices in the Park” by Anthony Browne. By using just the pictures of the text we have created exciting adjectives to describe what is happening in the pictures. Through the text we have used role play to create speech and develop a further understanding of the text. We wrote in 1st person from the viewpoint of one of the dogs to create a wow write.

 

Following on from “Voices in the Park”, we studied The Ghost thief. This was a spooky story that gave us lots of opportunities to develop our reading skills.

 

This week, we are developing the skills and vocabulary to write a setting description of an imaginary world.

 

 

Maths:

We have started the year looking at counting in multiples and place value of 4 digit numbers.

 

The children have used a range of resources to help them to understand how to count in multiples securely.

 

Each child has log on details and a password for times tables rock stars. Please encourage your child to complete these as often as possible as times tables knowledge is incredibly important. Times tables rock stars is a free APP that can be downloaded unto any mobile device. Throughout the year competitions are held using times tables rock stars.
