Ladoca Classwork

Hello Everyone!
Can you help me with some ideas please?  I am in the process of making our last two values' banners for the classroom.  I've done the lettering but I need to put on some decorations.  What should I use?  We could have Christian signs and symbols or things from creation eg flowers, stars, sun, butterflies.  Should we use images from this time of year?  I've got felt and buttons and some material at home but not lots so think carefully - and don't make it too complicated or small because I won't be able to attach it properly to the banner.  Maybe you could draw some pictures and email them to me.  Thank you everyone!
 
***Please see the files below for home learning activities planned following the Easter Holiday***
 
Please feel free to complete these with your children beforehand, or at your leisure.
 
They will be updated fortnightly. 
 
There is also a file entitled 'Handwriting' - please use this daily.  Have fun!
HANDWRITING 
Now is a great time to really practise our handwriting.  If you don't yet have a pen licence, this will help you to improve your skills so that you can earn some PLs.  If you do, you still need to work on your handwriting to ensure you develop your style and don't lose any of the skills you've worked so hard to learn.  
In the file below, I have written some information for parents to read so that they know how best to help and use the materials provided.  Please read this first before embarking on the sessions.  There are four letter formation sheets and four poems.  Please go slowly and carefully, really concentrating on the quality of your work.  Some of you will be able to do a letter formation sheet and a poem each day; some of you will find it more helpful to do little chunks at a time.  Whichever works for you is fine, just make sure you do some each day and try really hard with the letter formations.  Try to learn the poems too as learning poetry by heart is part of the English curriculum. 
I will do some more sessions next week.  Let me know how you get on and if you need me to make any changes.  Have fun!

Hello Ladoca Class!

We hope you are all well and having a good time learning at home!  Do let us know what you’ve been doing – you can even send us photos to go on the website (make sure you have permission from the adult looking after you!)

Are you ready for a challenge?  Yes?  Good!  Here we go then ……

Launching Ladoca’s Terrific Turtle Challenge!

Mrs Stevenson has made Tony the Turtle (he likes drinking tea!)

She has created a set of instructions on how to make him – he’s not too difficult and you can use scraps of fabric or even old socks to create him.  So your first challenge is, can you make your own Tony the Turtle following the instructions provided?

Next, can you create a 3-D turtle model in a different way from Mrs Stevenson?  Maybe you could use old pots, toilet rolls, something from the garden ….. or come up with some other ingenious way.  Take photos (Mrs Stevenson used her phone), or draw diagrams to show step by step what to do and give clear, simple instructions just as Mrs Stevenson has done.

Finally, can you take a picture of your turtle doing something or exploring somewhere, just like Tony investigating Mrs Stevenson’s tea!

If you send your instructions to either Mrs Stevenson or Mr Stoyles, we can put them on the website and try to make each other’s creations.  Don’t forget to send us photos of the finished products!

Have fun and be creative!  We’ll post some more challenges soon.

Welcome to Ladoca Learning page!
Below are plans and resources to use.
 
We would encourage children to ensure that they are reading every day and quizzing using their login for accelerated reader. If your child/children are not able to access school books, please refer to the accelerated reader link on the Home Learning Platform to see whether books from home have an available quiz.
 
We would also like to encourage children to practice their recall of multiplication and division facts, these can be accessed from links within the Home Learning Platform under '99 Club Juniors' and 'Morning Maths' Children in Year 4 are expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12 by the Summer Term in preparation for a recently introduced government test.
 
Please read the information carefully and use the links given.
