Bonjour Class 4. Just a little reminder you can send any of your amazing French work or Musical videos or photos to my email address, (srichardson@st-catherines.cumbria.sch.uk) to celebrate and share everyone's success. I have had one photo sent from a child in  Class 3 of what he has been up to in French. Aurevoir for now and I'll look forward to receiving your emails, Madam Richardson

Hi Year 4 & 5.

How are you? I had a lovely day yesterday planting in my garden, enjoying the sunshine and cooking a lovely dinner. Today I have so many jobs to do; but I think I will go for a little walk from my house.

 

Today I would like YOU to go to the zoo! Have you ever been to Chester Zoo? I know some of you will have, but if you haven't don't worry - today is the day! They are hosting a live virtual tour visiting lots of different animals-my favourite the Sun bears are on at 2pm! Every hour is a different animal.

https://www.chesterzoo.org/

 

They have lots of new activities for learning at home too - have a look at the link below, you should find an activity called 'How to make a Toad abode.' I thought our new friend Terry might like that!

Enjoy.

 

Easter is nearly with us, today is the last day of term!

 

Palm Sunday is Sunday 5th April

Good Friday is Friday 10th April

Easter Sunday is Sunday 12th April

 

Can you find out a little about the work of Cafod - have a look at the link below where you will find lots of games and videos about our wonderful world.

https://cafod.org.uk/Education/Kidz-Zone

 

I will be back here on Tuesday 14th April. 

Please don't be like Violet Beauregarde and eat so much (chocolate) you pop!

Good Morning Year 4 & 5. 

The sun has been really shining hasn't it, I hope you have been enjoying it a little. I have been in my garden quite a lot and yesterday I came across a creature I have never seen here before, I was quite excited! I found him (I don't know it was a male but I named him Terry so he became a boy!) under my green recycling bag. I think he was there because it is cold, dark and damp. I have no idea where he came from or where he has gone since. I resisted taking him somewhere as I concluded he could find his own way. What creature do you think he is? I took a photo for you...

It's a toad! A big one too - he was about 10cm long! I've been wondering what you have been finding in your garden? Have you seen any new creatures or any favourite animals? Today why don't you go and have look under stones, in crevices, behind plant pots and see what you can find. Why not create a table to record your findings (i.e. how many woodlice, how many slugs)? You could even draw one. Think about the place you find it. (habitat) Why does it like it there? It will probably like the conditions - Terry likes dark, cold and damp conditions. 

Meantime I have a little BBC video for you to watch to explain the difference between a frog and a toad.

Enjoy. Ill be in touch again tomorrow.

Hi Year 4 & 5, 

How are you doing? Did you listen yesterday to David Walliams? Remember he's on every day at 11am so you could listen to today's story too.

You know how I love poetry so today I have a couple of poems for you to listen to by the poet Allan Ahlberg. One you will definitely recognise because I have read it to you many times called 'Please Mrs Butler' (I love it) and a second less well known called 'The Dog in the playground.'

https://clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poets/ahlberg-allan

Why don't you could even have a go at writing your own poem - you're all great poets!

Ill be in touch tomorrow.

Mrs P

Hi Year 4 and 5,

I hope you are well, I've been thinking about you all this week, wondering how you are at home?

I know how much you enjoyed me reading the 'Worlds Worst Teachers' by David Walliams so I thought you might like this. David is reading one of his new stories everyday at 11am; today's story is 'The Terrible Triplets' I think it sounds great - I'll be listening!

Friday 20th March Year 4 & 5 Letters to Coldspring's

After hearing the residents at Coldspring's Residential home are not allowed visitors (Mrs Reay's Grandma is missing her visits) we decided to write them letters to cheer them up. Thanks Year 4 and 5, I'm sure you made the weekend better for some who are missing friends and family. Thanks Year 6 for making palm crosses to add to them.
