Summer Term 2020, Class 4, weekly home learning plans.
Shwmae dosbarth 4, how is week 5 of home learning finding you? Hope you are all really well and managing to enjoy your time at home with your family. Lovely to see the sunshine! Our Teams page on Hwb in Office is thriving and it was wonderful to have half of our class on Quizlet Live yesterday. Remember Tuesday at 2 for the next Quizlet Live. Thank you to all the pupils and parents who have emailed or shared their work on Teams and to all the children who have made a video for Flipgrid, it really is wonderful to see you If you have not yet dropped by to Teams, Flipgrid or dropped me a line to say 'Hi', please do, we would love to hear from you.
This week our class is 'Breaking down the Borders' by looking at the world of slavery in Ancient Egypt and Rome. We have learnt lots of interesting facts from History already. Can't wait to find out more!
Take care, stay safe, you and your families are all in my thoughts, Miss Jones.
Shwmae Dosbarth 4, sut wyt ti? How is everyone doing as we enter week 4 of home learning? I am missing you all, in these strange unprecedented times of lock down! I hope you are all well, happy and safe. The link below will give you this week's learning plans, please have a go if you are able to, email me if you need any help JonesV15@hwbcymru.net.
Please use your HWB account to communicate with us. Do this by going into Microsoft office, you can email me, you can drop into Teams and say hi to everyone in your class and if you hop over to Flipgrid (look for green and white cross icon) you can watch our Spring and Summer Term videos. This week we are also trying something new called Quizlet! This will be on Wednesday, look at the planning and drop into Teams to find out more. Please email me all the lovely work you have been doing at home as we get stuck into our new topic of 'Bringing down the Borders' with a special focus this week on how the Coronvirus has affected all our lives and prevented us from living the way we normally do. Take care, stay safe.
Message from Miss Jones
Hi Class 4 pupils and parents,
I want to begin by saying a massive well done on adjusting to our new ways of home learning and playing. The last two weeks have been highly unusual for us at Coychurch, us in Wales and across the world. Everyone is living and working in a different way than they did just a few weeks ago and we are all doing a great job! I have rung every parent in our class and it has been a real pleasure to speak to you all and our pupils. It was wonderful and reassuring for me to hear your voices and find out how you are getting on at home in these unprecedented days. Remember if you need me at any time you can email me on JonesV15@hwbcymru.net. Easter is around the corner and we are all looking forward to a welcome 2 week break and spending time with our families. We will pick back up with online work again when Summer Term starts.
Last week Class 4 began to develop a great communication system on our class teams’ page. It was in this week’s Literacy learning also, so if you have not logged on yet and said ‘Hi!’ - you will find us in your Hwb account, in Microsoft office, under the blue icon teams, Class 4, icon with pencils. Come and join our chat and stay in touch with your class mates and teachers, whilst we cannot all be together at school. This week we entered the wonderful world of the flipgrid, (one of your home learning tasks this week). To find this go into your Hwb on the main page, green with a white cross icon. Here you can post a short video or type a message if you are camera shy and reply to your friends via video. It has been a lot of fun and great to see everyone. I will sign off there for now, Class 4 pupils and parents- stay safe, look after yourself and each other. Keep washing your hands and enjoy your Easter holidays – it will definitely be one we will not forget!
Due to the current situation around COVID-19 pupils may be working some of the next term remotely. In order to help parents and children with this we will be setting tasks to complete on their online platforms (such as Hwb and Purple Mash) and also sending some work home in a Home Learning Book. Unfortunately we do not have the resources available at school to print out all of the work for every pupil in the school, so we will also be uploading some tasks and work to class pages. Parents are not necessarily required to print all of this work at home, but if you can help your child read the work on the computer, they can write the answers or complete the tasks in their Home Learning Book. Could you please ensure that anything printed off, or completed on separate sheets of paper, is stuck into their books.
We absolutely appreciate that this is going to be a difficult time for everyone, and will support parents and children as best we can remotely. If you require further clarification about tasks set, pupils can email their class teacher using their Hwb email addresses. We politely request that these email addresses are not used for any other reason, we will however be monitoring our email@example.com email address to deal with any important enquiries.

Shwmae pawb a chroeso,
Welcome to Class 4, Autumn term 2019. We have a lot of things to look forward to as we embark on our learning journey.
Our topic this term is Time Travellers-20th Century with a particular emphasis on WW2. We have arranged a visit to the WW2 museum in Swansea Bay and other workshops to take place in school. We are excited to learn more!
Any queries about any aspect of life in Class 4, please contact me.
Best wishes Miss V Jones (Class 4 Teacher)
Maths - the children are learning about clocks, analogue and digital. Y5 have been looking at TV timetables.
Literacy - dilemma stories and big questions - we have been considering what we would do in situations and whether we think time or money is more precious!
Trip day to Swansea Museum - pupils and staff are very excited. We have started to learn about World War 2 and the people involved in the war. Today will help to bring it alive for us. Photos to follow!
Japan - we have started to learn about Japan and how life there compares to Wales. Some staff and children are going to bring in their kimono for us to learn more about Japanese clothing.
