What do Christians learn from the Creation Story?
This term, the children will be learning more about the story of Creation from the chapter of Genesis. They will learn about why they see God as the Creator and what parts of the story might be important for Christians living today.
This week, the children will be continuing with their non-chronological reports and using what they did last week, to create their own sea creature!
First, the children need to design their own creature using the template below. They will have to think about how it moves, it's diet and it's appearance.
This is an important task, as in the coming weeks, the children will need to create a model of their sea creature...so try not to be too elaborate! As I mentioned in the June Half Term tab, start collecting lots of junk modelling objects or things you would normally recycle!
Once designed, get the children to be as independent as possible using the documents from last week to plan, draft and complete their own factfile for their created creature!
Please find attached below a Reading Activity linked to the opening chapter of a story called The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.
I've also attached two links below to some Home Learning Workbooks released last week by a fantastic company called Vocabulary Ninja. This is where my Word of the Week resources come from, and they have released these for each age group as a workbook for learning at home. They are VERY reasonably priced at under £5 per book. Let me know what you think if you do purchase one!
Measures - Capacity
This week, the children will be furthering their understanding of measures by focusing on measuring capacity or volume!
Similarly to weight, children in Year 3 and 4 need to be able to:
Practical ideas for using maths in our homes:
Let’s make a potion!
Use some of the Recipe cards to make your own potion! Brew some different ingredients using water coloured with food colouring and mix them up by measuring the ingredients!
Collect lots of empty liquid containers and take them in the bath or paddling pool! Pour an amount into each one and estimate it’s contents. Then measure it accurately and work out how close you were.
Look at food packaging and compare the weights on each one. Group them into those measured in millilitres and those in litres. Order a selection from lowest to highest capacities.
With a sponge or a flannel, find out how much water it holds. Squeeze the sponge or flannel out into a cup until you have squeezed out all the water, and then measure how much is in the cup! Which sponge or flannel holds the most water?
Group 1, 2, 3 Task is a set of domino cards using the suffix -ment. Match the root word to the spelling using the suffix -ment.

This week, we have been selected to take part in a county-wide, virtual Tri Golf competition! This is a fantastic opportunity for some competitive sport, and staying active during lockdown!
For this competition the children will need to complete the Tri Golf events, keeping a record of their best scores on their score sheet (this is also in the attached document). To enter the event you will need to click on the entry form link in the document, this is attached below. From here you will input some information so that we know which school you attend and then attach a link to your score sheet. The document contains QR code links to the relevant documents (you might need to use a QR reader app such as Inigma or QR Reader.)
You can also tweet @CGSOutreach when you have submitted your entry (and us as well!)
This week's PSHE session is taken from the Oak National Academy. Follow the link for the children to take part in the lesson.
In today's lesson, the Prime Minister has contracted COVID-19 through shaking hands during his official work. We must step up as his Deputy Prime Minister to lead the country by way of a formal public letter of guidance. The lesson works towards creating leaders - where we must think about how to provide the most relevant information in order that it influences people to act responsibly, collectively, and effectively. This guidance as a leader will help reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, thereby saving lives!
