What would you draw if you knew it could come to life?

Autumn's pool

Autumn decided to draw a swimming pool. What a great idea, especially with all the warm weather we've had recently. Thanks for sharing! laugh

Spread your Wings and Fly

How beautiful- here are some photos of Anta in 4M letting his butterflies go on Friday morning. He looked after his caterpillars for two whole weeks before they turned into crysalis and then waited another ten days before they turned into butterflies. He has the butterlflies in the house for four days before he let them go. How exciting to have been able to see their full transformation! Thanks for sharing, Anta. ALSO, Anta  has been working on a story called, The Magic Pebble. Here is an extract from Chapter 1: 

Everywhere that he could see was living fire. They didn't 

know how to come across it. They couldn't go under it, because 

the ground was made of solid rock. they couldn't go over it,

because they couldn't fly. They couldn't go through it, because

of the fire.

We hope you have been making the most of this this time with your families and that you've managed to find some fun activities to keep your brains and bodies active. Did you join in with Joe Wicks this morning? I didn't (I'm still recovering from the other morning). Instead, I started off my day with a little bit of meditation, so if you feel in the mood, give it a go. 


Click on the link and scroll down, there are some meditations for kids too. smiley

We really do miss each and everyone of you. Stay safe and take care.

Mrs Ozerek and all Year 4 Staff 

Good Afternoon to you all. smiley

We really hope you're all well and getting through each day as positively as possible. Of course, this is a very surreal situation, but we will work together to make the best of what's been thrown our way. yes

A little excercise is a great way to start the day. Have you been tuning in with Joe Wicks? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v-a_dpwhro

Perhaps you'd prefer a little yoga? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X655B4ISakg

However you choose to be active, do it in a way that you enjoy or perhaps think about doing this as a family.  

There are some really nice ideas already linked to the home learning section and they should keep you going for now. These will be updated regularly. Do continue to log in to your Active Learn, Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars. If you have lost your log in details or cannot rememeber them, please ask your parents to contact the school at school@gwynjones.waltham.sch.uk

If you don't already have one, keeping a diary/journal is a brilliant way to practise all of those important writng skills, aswell as being able to express your thoughts and feelings.

Please do check this page as we will be updating it regulary. In the meantime, stay safe and well.
