Friday 16th July – A virtual day at the beach dress up day!

We're on Teams from 9.15am - join us all day or as much as you can please!

Lesson 1 – maths pirate mystery activity 

We’ve completed the following type of activity (attached below) before at the end of other terms! Remember when you have worked out the clue, don’t scribble the whole row off, just the column (for example, if the suspect is female, only cross out male rather than the whole row in case of any mistakes).

Pirate themed to suit our beach day theme! Answers available later if you can’t join us.

If you are with me on Teams, you do not need to print this off.

Lesson 3 

Our last lesson of this academic year! I know you asked last week if we could watch more BBC Supermover maths and English videos on the last day so I intend (hopefully) to play these for some fun, as well as some calm colouring.

I will be messaging (through Dojos) a mindfulness colouring sheet with your names on them for you to colour in during this lesson.

Good morning Frogs...Mrs Lines here!

My intention is to have some fun (whilst learning) today and tomorrow as it is my last days with you before the Summer holidays!

Just a reminder for anyone who wasn’t on Teams on Monday…we’re going for a Day at the Beach dress up theme on Friday…sun hats, buckets and spades, rubber rings…go for it! 

Lesson 1 – maths – coordinates

This morning, I will be on Teams from 9.15am! If you can, please print the attachments below…it might be quite difficult otherwise as we are focusing on coordinates.

Unless I ask you to, please print just the first activity – labelled summer holiday coordinates. You may wish to do the second activity if you feel really confident after my explanation. 

We have looked at coordinates before but if you can’t join us on Teams and am unsure, please use this link to help you with completing coordinates...

Activity 2 - Sharks and Emojis /docs/Lesson_1_coordinates_Sharks_and_emoji.docx

If you cannot print the sheets above, please complete this alternative activity - emoji code breakers. You may still wish to be on Teams with us to go through the coordinate explanation and for help with this activity. /docs/Alternative_lesson_1_activity.docx 

Lesson 2 – Fun stuff!

OK, I really hope you can join us on Teams for a fun group activity. You do not need to print anything off for this.

If you can’t, please log into Purplemash like you normally do for homework and read the next chapter of our book. Please then answer the questions afterwards.

Lesson 3 – Code breakers, design and discussion!

Activity 1 – Summer holiday code breaker activity – switch your maths minds back on! /docs/Lesson_3_Summer_Holiday_code_breaker.docx

Activity 2 - To end our year, we’re going to do some T-shirt designing! Please find the attached activity sheet for designing a T-shirt to represent our year at school. Really try to think about the year – it’s been a school year like no other! Jot down ideas and then create your design. If you can’t join us on Teams to share your work, please message me a picture through Dojos so I can see it! /docs/Lesson_3_Design_a_T-shirt_for_the_class_of_2021.docx




Wednesday 14th July 2021

Well done yesterday,it was really lovely to see so many of you on teams yesterday afternoon. Thankyou for joining me then, I hope I see you again this afternoon and maybe a few more of you will join???

In answer to a question about the Scandinavian economy yesterday, the slides at the beginning of the lesson describe human geography as the aspects of a country affected by humans and economy means the financial (money) arrangements for each country. The Danish economy is therefore the way the Danes manage their money in the country, it wasn't a specific question but a general comment about what human geography is.

Registration: Check in through teams with Miss Davies-Griffith at 09:15, look out for the invite.

Keep scrolling down the page if you missed any of yesterday's work and need to catch up, you can do it!!

Lesson 1: Literacy continuing from Pigeon Impossible yesterday

Good Morning Frogs from Mr Rushton, it was really nice to see you yesterday on Teams and I've been looking over your reading responces on Forms.  

For today we are going to continue with Pigeon Impossible from yesterday. (I know this will look a little different as I have also included our Word of the Day and Handwriting for you to try first thing. 

 Your Word of the Day is Overseas.

You can use an A4 piece and pencils or pens if you have not paints and just sketch some first ideas which you can build up when you return to school OR you can use paints and design your A3 piece to bring back into school on Monday as the finished piece - it is up to you!

Good morning Frogs,

Lesson 1 - maths with Mrs Lines

This morning, I will be on Teams from 9.15am to 10.15am for a maths lesson about graphs. Please try to be on there. If you can't, please follow the PowerPoint and Minecraft activity sheet attached below.




Lesson 2 - English 

We have been using the Natural Curriculum website in school so I have put an activity about the Darwin's bark spider - very cool! We will focus again on proofreading!

Like we do at school, watch the short video (link below) about the creature and then complete the activity sheet afterwards. I will put the answers on here later for you to check.

You may need a dictionary to help you. 

Video link- https://www.naturalcurriculum.co.uk/year-4-grammar-lessons/proofreading/darwins-bark-spider/screen-1/ 

Activity sheet - /docs/Darwins-bark-spider-proofreading-worksheet__1_.pdf

Lesson 3 - da Vinci continued and PE

You all seemed to enjoy learning about da Vinci in our science lesson - about his inventions and his scientific developments so this afternoon we would like you to focus on da Vinci as an artist. Attached are two worksheets (please choose only one to complete) about two of his most famous pieces - Mona Lisa and The Last Supper.

If you can print off these sheets, it would be easier, but you can always work on your own paper. 

This will also give you an answer about what you noticed about Mona Lisa's eyebrows! 

You could also have another go at writing in reflection, just like him! 




You usually have PE on a Monday afternoon so I have attached a link for a Joe Wicks exercise. We are hoping you may be able to join in with another classes PE lesson via Teams during the week.  



 Thank you Frogs - utterly amazed at your motivation on Friday - keep it going!

Parents and Carers,

As a part of your child’s education at Hinstock Primary School, we promote personal wellbeing and development through Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education programme. PSHE education is the curriculum subject that gives children the knowledge, understanding, attitudes and practical skills to live safe, healthy, productive lives and meet their full potential.

I am writing to let you know that over the next five weeks your child’s class will be taking part in a variety of lessons which will focus on:

  • Dental and personal hygiene
  • Healthy sleeping habits
  • Safety in the sun
  • Medicines and antibiotics
  • Relationships and sex education (RSE) – including puberty and the name and function of some external genitalia
  • Personal identity and recognising different qualities in others
  • Keeping safe in different situations

PSHE teaching will take place in a safe learning environment and is underpinned by our school ethos and values.

If you would like to find out more or discuss any concerns, we would urge you to contact us as soon as possible. The first lesson, on Friday the 18th of June, will focus on oral and personal hygiene as well as sun safety.
