Well done on another fabulous day of learning Year 4! My shout outs today go to Regan (4L) for joining us in our online learning, I am very impressed with how much you have engaged. Esther (4G) for your engagement with today’s online session, especially with e-safety.
Well done to all those who are accessing their learning, whether you are in school or accessing online, I am very proud of you all.
I want to give a shout out to Shyaw, I’ve heard fantastic things about your online learning and how you even coached your friends online as well. I also want to give a shout out to Floyd, for consistently good behaviour throughout the school day.
I just wanted to do a ‘shout out’ to all the children in year 3 and 4 who have been logging on and completing work. You really are becoming experts in using classrooms and have make such progress since last Wednesday. Well done -I’m sure you can teach the grown ups a thing or two now.
We have had some lovely practical learning being completed at home and in school to support our Natural Disasters expedition, with the home made volcanoes coming along very nicely. I can’t wait till next week when we start being scientists and completing experiments with them. Advanced notice for next week, you will need some vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and if possible (but not essential) some red or orange food colouring. If you can’t get hold of that, some Coca Cola and a mint will work too.
We have decided to celebrate learning at 2pm Friday afternoon, by turning Plover Praise time into our very own ‘Plover Virtual Disco’ – so get your party clothes on, do your hair and get ready to boogie!
Check out our wonderful volcanoes – you still have time to make your own ready for our ‘explosive’ experiments next week.
