Bowness Book Week
Have a look at our class page, as well as the home school page, for a whole wealth of activities you can do this World Book Day!
HELLO and WELCOME BACK!
We hope you have had a lovely and restful time. Now we head into our new topics- Let's see how we get on.
Did you count stars?
Last night I huddled up in layers and went outside to count the stars within the constellation of Orion. I could only count 14 stars- They say that 10 or less has a high level of Light Pollution- Whereas 30 stars is great visibility.
Did you have a go? Why not see what you have and then send in the results.
COSY UP WITH A BOOK
Monday Zoom at 10:30
Please wear cosy pj’s / onesies/ slippers etc. Bring a torch, led lights, sit in a darkened room- somewhere comfy. Bring a book that you want to tell us about- and we’ll listen to blurbs and read some more of Brightstorm. Hot chocolate is optional!
Are you ready to count some stars? Follow the link and then share your results.
RSPB Great British Bird watch 2021
Did you join in this weekend gone?
Did you find anything exciting?
We'll continue to keep an eye out at school too!
If you did take part- don't forget to log in your data on the RSPB website.
This next weekend why don't you join in with the Great British Bird watch. Just spend an our over the weekend recording as many birds as you can see in your garden.
We have signed up at school too! So...binoculars at the ready....!
Reading at Home
We all know how reading takes us on journeys to imaginary places- as well as a host of other fabulous reasons to read- and so I'm now going to point you in the direction of some new available reading materials.
Class 4 have been signed up for 'getepic.com' and 'readtheory.org' as part of your English lessons- But are also websites which are full of access to books- These include ebooks, comics, videos, fiction, non fiction plus games and activities. So if you haven't got a physical book in hand- then you now have the ability to find something to read- Let's see where it might take you!
These are some links to lots of different books and stories online:
(A google drive with 100s of books on it)
(hyperlinks to lots of book resources)
Homeschool January 2021

Hello Class 4- I hope you had a relaxing Easter Holiday and are feeling refreshed ready for the next Home School week. Check out Edmodo for little messages and snippets as well as our pages on here.Have a look at our classroom Chronicles before heading to our work pages. Don't forget to keep in touch via the email or Edmodo. I'd love to see some of the work and fun stuff you have been up to.
Hello and welcome to our class 4 home learning page. During the time we are not at school I will be posting regular work and updates for us to follow.
We are continuing our 'Botanicals' topic and move slowly into our new topic of 'Our Planet' You will find a weekly schedule in the sub page above. Please take note that is work is for the whole week- Don't rush it and take your time.
Each week new schedules of activities will be posted.
There are some differences for each year group so make sure you check the tasks carefully.
Keep checking this and other pages for updates as I will be adding interesting items as I find them.
Please remember too that during these uncertain times we want you to also enjoy your time at home. Get out and grab some fresh air, spend some quality time with your family, chat, play some games, garden, bake- whatever you do, keep smiling.
If you have any questions or concerns or just want to keep in touch, please don't hesitate to contact me using the contact form.
Hello Class 4
Hope you're all doing well- Check out the new content for the Easter holidays above. Keep getting in touch, just to say 'Hello'.
Hello Class 4.
How are you all doing. How has your first week of home schooling been? Its a genuine question- Was there too much or too little work? Anything you did not understand? Anything you would like to see more of? Less of?
If you let me know what you and your parents think and then I will try and tailor the next lot of work to suit. This is all a bit of a learning curve for us all and so we will try and work our way through it the best we can.
As time goes on I will move items from this page and put them into the other class pages- so if you cant find it have a look elsewhere.
Anyway, as its now the start of the Easter holidays there wont be any work set until the 14th April- so 2 weeks off to do lots of fun things- You might want to test your spellings tomorrow- but that's about it- I'll be adding lots of things to the Class Chronicles page and the Boredom Busters page- to see what things I have been up to and set some fun challenges. Keep checking in to see what's new.
Miss G :)
