Reflections/Preparation session (Thursday, 9th / Friday, 10th July 2020)

You may be coming in to school next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for the full days plus Friday morning for a special ceremony where we say our goodbyes. We are going to be doing some road safety, team games, talking about lockdown and middle school and much more. I can’t wait to see you all. If you won’t be coming in to school, then I will see you after the summer at Oldfields.

There are two things I would like you to think about if you are coming to school next week:

  • Think about your best memories of Richard Clarke First School! It could be a memory of any of your teachers or experiences: Was it meeting your teachers in Reception class? hunting for Boo the Bear in Y1? Was it burning buildings for th Great Fire in Y2? Was it dressing as a Greek in Y3? Or was it something in Y4?H Make some notes and think about these before next week, as we’ll be spending some time talking about these.
  • If you are coming to school on Friday, 17th July for the morning, we will be having a special ceremony for both Y4 bubbles where we share memories, say goodbye to both children along with Miss Cooper and Mr Welsh, plus enjoy lunch together before you go! During this, we will be letting you each perform something if you would like. You don’t have to! But if you would like to, please practise at home this week. This needs to be something by yourself. It could be a music performance, jokes/comedy, small sketch or something else. You will be judged by myself, Miss Cooper and Mr Welsh!

 

If you are coming to school next week – I can’t wait to see you. You should arrive at 9.15am and come up the steps to the yard where either myself or Mrs. Hanson will greet you to go to where your bubble will be learning.

This week’s instructions: After you have logged in to Linguascope, please click the French flag in the beginner box. Firstly, you should go on to ‘L’alimentation’ again and click on ‘Les légumes’ (and you can have another practise of ‘Les Fruits’ too) – have a go at a couple of the games to see what you have remembered from the last 2 lessons. When you have done this for about 10 minutes, go back to the menu, choose ‘L’alimentation’ again and then I would like you to click on ‘Le petit dejeuner’. Can you tell what it’s going to be about by looking at the picture?  Click on ‘presentation’ to learn (and hear) the new words. Make sure you repeat them carefully. There are then lots of different games you can play (Jeu de Memoire is the memory game – but there are loads of others too). If you click on ‘Imprime une fiche’ – a worksheet will open. These are just like the ones we sometimes use in class! You can print them out and have a go at the activities.

Try to avoid doing too many different topics though, as I will choose different ones for you to do next week. However, if you want to practise some of the topics we have done already in Y4 then try clicking:
