Good morning 4JH!

How are you all? It has been lovely hearing from some of you this week and seeing lots of the 4JH faces that are in school :D 

I hope you are enjoying writing your tapestry, I can't wait to see them. I've received a few sneak peaks and it makes me so happy to see and remember all of our lovely memories from earlier in the year. 

Final 2 days of home learning... you can do it! 

Mrs Hayman

Pupdate 

You will not believe who I bumped into yesterday... 

Scarlett's mum and her dog Marni! I have been hearing all about Marni when Scarlett emails me so it was lovely to see her! The best part... Ernie and Marni were like best friends playing! It was SO cute! So I thought I would share a video with you.

Hello 4JH!

Good morning 4JH! 

Hope you are all okay and had a lovely weekend! What did you get up to? I had no Ernie dramas this weekend so it was a pretty relaxing one for me, topped off with Brighton winning - always helps :) 

Can you belive we are in to our final two weeks of year 4?! This year has certainly been a crazy one but I'm glad I've spent the crazy year with you guys. 

Are anyone's holiday plans back on track for the summer? It would be great to hear if you are venturing away somewhere!

Have a splendid day.

Tuesday 30th June

Helloooo 4JH

How are you all? It is rainy day today so perfect time to get stuck into your home learning. Did you all enjoy researching plastic pollution yesterday? There is so much to find out, it is incredible! Ella sent me a link to a great video - A girl who lives a ZERO waste lifestyle. Just shows that people can reduce their plastic usage if they really wanted to. Worth a watch so thank you Ella!

 

 

 

Have a great day.

Monday 29th June

Good morning 4JH! 

Did you all have a lovely weekend? I hope you didn't get blown away by the wind! My weekend was filled with a little bit of craziness (my pupdate will explain more) followed by a great catch up with some friends. Cerys has been bust practising her sewing skills.

Look at what she has been making...           

It's Monday so don't forget to check in on the Top Ten's later today and we will have a new Spark of the Week... I wonder who it will be?! 

Have a great day and try to check in with me if you can. 

Mrs Hayman 

P.S Top Ten's are now live!

Pupdate 

 

After a very short lived walk on Friday evening (the rain didn't help), Ernie was acting very strange, shaking his head and holding it to one side (you know, like you do when you have water in your ear?!) so we knew he must have got something in it on our walk. A Saturday morning trip to the vets meant this little guy had to be sedated - he was too wriggly for someone to go poking around in his ear!  The vet pulled out the huge, spiky grass seed! It had gone right down into his ear and in the process, perforated his ear drum... (hopefully you remember what this means from our science learning!) A very sleepy Ernie later, he was sent home with some medicine, a big bill (I hope he has been saving his pocket money!) and the memorabilia from his early grass seed career... After an hour or so of being back at home, he was back to his usual self!  

Fact of the day 

After a well earned break from fact of the day, Sam is back! 

In 1943, the US government banned sliced bread from being sold. You had to slice it yourself.

Friday 26th June

Hi 4JH!

Just a quick one from me today as I have a message from someone very exciting! 

Have a lovely weekend and a big WELL DONE for all of your hard work this week. 

Mrs Hayman 

A message from Miss Gilmour

Hi guys! I hope you are all having a lovely time in the sunshine -isn’t it hot! Mrs Hayman has told me how well you have all been doing in lockdown and I check the class page all the time to see your lovely pictures. I have some exciting news - I am going to be teaching at Chesswood in September! I am so so so excited to see you all again and I will be in our old classroom so please pop by and see me! I have been really busy at home and taking lovely long walks when I can and lots of bike rides too. Can’t wait to see you all very soon - I haven’t forgotten about any of you and can’t wait to hear all about your summer adventures! Miss Gilmour x

Thursday 25th June

Hello 4JH!

Hands up if you are heading to the beach after your home learning today?! It is SO SO SO hot, a dip in the sea will definitely be needed - I know Ernie will need a dip later too. 

How are you getting on with you biographies? I hope you have enjoyed finding out lots about Sir David Attenborough, he is an incredible man! 

Remember to stay safe in the sunshine today, drink lots of water and keep in the shade as much as possible. 

Have a great day. 

Mrs Hayman 

Pupdate 

Ernie was caught in the act... but what was he up to?!

Wednesday 24th June

Howdy hiiiiii 4JH! 

Hope you are all okay and enjoying the sunshine. Yesterday was soooo warm and today is meant to be even hotter! Have any of you got paddling pools in the garden to cool down in? I wish I did! I know Ernie would love it too. Make sure you are remembering your sun safety if spending time outside. There are some great videos on our website -head to Pastoral > Staying Safe and Well > Sun Safety. These can give you some top tips on staying safe and enjoying the warm weather.

Have a great day. 

Mrs Hayman

I hope Ernie remembered his sun cream!

Cerys sent me a picture of her reading spot in the sunshine yesterday. It looked fab!                       

Cerys, it is something about your pictures - it never lets me rotate them!

Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine.

Good morning 4JH and welcome back :)

Did you all have a lovely weekend? What did you get up to? I had a great weekend watching Brighton beat Arsenal, eating BBQ's and walking Ernie - pretty standard apart from the football part!

He has really got stuck in to his David Walliams books over his time at home and is currently loving Mr Stink - I know lots of you have read this one too! It's a gooden!

Helloooooo 4JH

It's Wednesday, which means we are half way there! I've heard great things about yesterday's DT activity - boat making. Cerys and Sam sent evidence that their boat was able to hold the weight. Sam's even managed to hold DOUBLE the amount! It's not too late if you fancy giving it a go, just scroll down to yesterday's work and have a look. You never know, with all the rain that is expected today, you may even be able to put your boat outside to float away! 

Hope you are all okay and staying safe.

It was great to see some different names on there and I was super impressed by AR. We managed to fill a top 10 for the first time since... I can't remember! What books are you reading at the moment? I was talking to Erdem yesterday about David Walliams' new book, World's Worst Parents, coming out at the beginning of July - Erdem is very excited! Ella was also telling me about the new Alesha Dixon book in the Lightning Girl series - she is LOVING it. Let me know if you've found any new books recently. I would love to hear.

How are you all? Did you have a good weekend, despite the rain?! I went on a lovely dog walk but took the route through the woods... A right turn here, a left turn there and then we found that we were losing ourselves amongst the trees! Bizarrely, we ended up right where we had started - the woods are a crazy place!

 I will be doing Top 10s and Spark of the Week later so keep your eyes peeled to see if you have made it. 

Lilly Mai has sent us an update on her sunflower - it is now taller than her!

How are you all? And how is your reading coming along? I'm yet to look at AR but hoping for fabulous things when I do log in :D Make sure you are reading every day and then don't forget to quiz on the book when you have finished it. If you have run out of books, let me know and I can help you to get a new one to read. 

I would love to see some photos of what you are getting up to at home, not just your school work. Maybe you are baking, building or just chillaxing? Either way, send me a snap and I can share it with the class. 

Have a great day.

Hello 4JH!

I hope you have all settled back into your home learning - Erdem even said he was happy to have his work to do again! Thank you to those of you who got in touch yesterday, it was lovely to hear from you. If you haven't yet, no worries, just ping me an email :) Cerys told me all about her trip to the beach and how she braved the FREEZING cold sea.

Good morning 4JH, welcome back to home learning! Can you believe it is June already? 

What did you all get up to over half term? I spent lots of time finding nice dogs walks with Ernie, having BBQ's in the garden and going for bike rides. We also made our own pizzas and used our BBQ and a pizza stone to cook them - it was so cool and tasted really yummy. Did you do any baking? I would love to hear what kept you busy over the week. 

Have a great day and if you have any questions, send them my way :)

Happy Friday 4JH!

Last day of home learning and then you have a whole week to relax and spend time doing what you love. HOW EXCITING! Last day also means, last day to work towards those reading targets. Make sure if you have any quizzes you are yet to do, get them done today! I will be looking to see who has met their targets later this afternoon. 

There will be no home learning over half term but keep an eye on the website because we will be posting some ideas to keep you busy! 

Have a productive day and a FABULOUS half term. 

Stay safe.

How was your weekend? Mine was filled with plenty of long dog walks, one of which resulted in us having to walk up what felt like 100000000 steps! Ouch! 

We are set for another week of sunshine so hopefully this will give you the opportunity to get outside and learn, whether that is completing your home learning outside in the garden or if it is exploring somewhere new. 

Watch this space for our top tens later today :)  They are up! Go and have a look :D 

Mrs Hayman

Good morning 4JH

We made it to the end of the week! YAY! One last push with your home learning today and then you can enjoy the weekend. Have you got any nice walks or bike rides planned? I would love to hear what you are getting up to. 

I hope you are all managing to keep in touch with your friends. My challenge for you today is to reach out to someone that you haven't spoken to for a while, just to say hello. I am going to do it too as I know it will make them smile.

Oh look! Sasha went to the beach too! He has made a photo collage of his time there. I love what he has done with the stone he found. Amazing what you can do when you keep those eyes peeled!  

 

Guess who else went to the beach! I feel like I'm missing out on something here. Friday night plan of action... exercise on the beach, during sunset! I bet Ernie will love the beach! 

PUPDATE   

 

 

Ernie is starting to really enjoy playing with his ball! 

Message from MRS Clements 

Hi 4JH,  I really enjoy seeing all your photos and work on the website. I'm keeping up with all my learning as well.  I've been watching Joe at 9am to keep fit so I can ride my bike again! keep up the good work.

The next time I see you, I think you all will be taller than me!!😊

Ernie loves being out in the garden, especially in this sunshine! Do you have any pets working with you at home? Send in pictures and I can add them to our page :)

Tuesday 24th March 

Good morning 4JH! Happy Tuesday!

The sun is still shining, I wonder if you could use your outside space to complete one of your daily learning activities today? I would love to see some pictures of your work stations at home! My work station is the same today, just a little bit quieter…

Keep sending in your work – I am looking to give out even more house points today!

Have a great day :) 

Message from Mr Verner 

Howdy 4JH, just a quick note to say hi to you all! On my daily exercise regime today I managed to scoot to Goring from Worthing Pier (and back), with no snack stops - honest!  I've even been teaching my Year 1 sons the 2 x table with pairs of their smelly socks - are they ready for Chesswood Cards yet? 😊 Mr Verner. 

Pupdate

Ernie only woke me up three times last night! Wahoooooo!  

Fact of the day 

Sam: A Mine craft world is 70 times larger than the sun in real life!

Jed: Sharks have no bones so when they die, the saltwater dissolves every part of them but their teeth! 

Emily: From July to November, the months have the name JASON. 

WOW! 10 of you have already spent time learning on IXL today - lovely to see! Well done Lotte, Emily, Luke, Sophia G, Jed, Erdem, Cerys, Sophia H, Jamie and Sasha. Give yourselves a pat on the back and add 10 HP to your tally. 

Jamie, Ella and Sam, rumour has it... your word count has increased! YAY! 10HP   

                                                                   

 

Monday 23rd March 

Good morning 4JH! I hope you had a lovely relaxing weekend. You will be pleased to know, I picked up my new puppy on Saturday and decided to call him Ernie. He has been keeping me on my toes – nibbling on them too! 

The Year 4 Team have spent a lot of time prepping activities for you and we'd love to see photos/videos of you taking part in these learning activities. I’ve already received some this morning, which makes me so proud! Just remember to write the date and underline it, using a ruler, particularly for maths if you don't have squared paper.

Monday is usually our BRIGHT SPARK time so WELL DONE to those of you who have made it onto our Top 10's this week!  Don’t forget to keep track of your house points – maybe you could tally them up on the inside cover of your home learning book?

It is so quiet here without you all so please do keep the emails and photos coming in! I can’t wait to hear from you.

 

Fact of the day 

Thank you to Sam and Ibrahim for sharing their facts with us today.

Sam: Space is a giant vacuum cleaner, it sucks up the air.

Ibrahim: Everyone was born both handed, but one hand they don’t like to use.  I wonder whether we can teach ourselves to use our other hand? 

Home Learning Books 

Look at all of our fabulous learning books! It is great to see how you have all personalised them :)
