Year 4 Remote Learning Shout out!

posted 25 Feb 2021, 03:28 by Lauren Richardson

Miss Tingle and I have been super impressed with all the remote learning we have seen over the last half term. We have been so proud of your hard work, creativity and enthusiasm whilst you have been learning at home. 
All of you have done an amazing job! You have completed the assigned work to a great standard and have been attending the teams meetings daily. We even have one of the best attendance in school! Well done Y4! 

However, some of you have gone above and beyond! These pupils have been completing all the tasks to an exceptional standard and coming up with really exciting ways to complete it. 
A shout out to: Evie, Ellie, Edward, Chloe, Albert and Jeevan! Once again, a huge well done to all the remote learners. 

Not long till you are reunited as the Flying Fish Class! We are so excited to see you all again in the classroom. Keep up the amazing work :) 
I have attached just a few examples of home learning which stood out, I would have put all of the amazing examples I have seen on if I could! 

Guitar Lessons

Well done to everyone on their guitar lesson guitar. Year 4 you were awesome getting things changed from school to home so quickly!

Mr Merritt was really impressed with you all and it was a great success. If you play guitar and you haven't signed up to join the online lessons then please drop me an email and we will get this organised for you.

Those who accessed your lesson in school - if you end up self isolating then please don't worry we can organise things really quickly to ensure you can still access the lessons, as the Y4's demonstrated this week! Just please email me and let me know you are isolating so I can organise things for you. 

Ideally please could you have your guitar tuned prior to your lesson, it just saves lots of time in your lesson, especially as Mr Merritt can't physically do it for you. I used this website yesterday and it worked a treat!

If you scroll down it tells you the peg to turn, and what note/ number it should be tuned to. If you click on turn on tuner your microphone will listen to playing the note and the peg will go green when its correct :) It will get easier the more you do it. 

Please drop me an email if you're stuck with anything.

Instrumental Lessons

posted 7 Jan 2021, 03:19 by Louise Sutton

We have had a fantastic start to our remote violin lessons today and I am so excited to start clarinets and recorders, along with guitars on Tuesday next week. I have sent all grown-ups an email explaining about this. Once you reply to say you would like to continue your child's instrumental lesson then I will send you the appropriate consent form. Consent is needed because these lessons will take place via Microsoft Teams. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you haven't received your email with the details on these online lessons, so that I can get your child set up.

Remote Learning update

posted 5 Jan 2021, 00:47 by Lauren Tingle   [ updated 5 Jan 2021, 02:27 ]

Hello team!

Happy New Year! As you will know by now, Boris Johnson has announced a national lockdown including the closure of all schools to most pupils in England starting today. Although some Key Worker children will still be coming into school, the majority of you will be continuing your learning and completing lessons remotely. 
This week, we will be uploading daily tasks onto SeeSaw as you are all familiar with. We will be uploading an English, Maths, Reading and Topic activity each day starting today. All tasks will be uploaded onto SeeSaw by 3pm ready for the following day and this gives you chance to print off any worksheets and email us if you have any questions. To make your day easier to follow, we will also send a daily timetable as an announcement at 3pm so you can see how the next day's learning will look. We ask that English and Maths tasks are completed and submitted onto SeeSaw by 12pm so we can mark these and provide feedback and that Reading and Topic tasks are submitted on SeeSaw by 3pm.

Starting next week, we will be providing daily video lesson inputs for English and Maths via Teams meetings. Each child will be provided with a Teams account which will be sent out by the end of this week. Invitations to daily Teams meetings will be sent out by me to your email address where you will just need to click on the link at the correct time and it will take you straight to the meeting. 

Timings -

1st Teams Meeting
9am - Register 
9:15 - English lesson input 
After the English input, the Teams Meeting will end and children will be expected to complete and upload their English work onto SeeSaw by 10:15am to give children time for a 15 minute break before their Maths lesson. 

2nd Teams Meeting
10:30 - Maths lesson input
After the Maths input, the Teams Meeting will end and children will be expected to complete and upload their Maths work onto SeeSaw by 12pm.

12pm - 1pm - Lunch time.

1pm - 1;20pm - Children will be expected to complete a short reading activity which will take the place of our daily guided reading sessions in school. 

From 1:20pm, children will be expected to complete the Topic activity which will be on SeeSaw and upload their completed work by 3pm. There will be no scheduled Teams Meeting for Topic lessons however we may attach video explanations to tasks if we feel they are needed to aid with completion. 

Teams Expectations -
Children will be expected to attend Teams Meetings at the correct times. If a child is unable to attend a specific session, please email me as soon as possible and the meeting will be recorded and uploaded onto SeeSaw alongside the task so children can access this at an alternative time or re-watch to aid with completion of the task.  

When attending Teams Meetings, children will be expected to dress appropriately although there is no expectation that this will be school uniform. 

We ask that children mute their microphone when joining the meeting and keep this muted throughout to avoid any background noise or distractions. If children need to ask a question or would like to offer an answer, they can press the 'hand up' icon to virtually put up their hand so I know they would like to speak. 

We appreciate the information overload and that this method of remote learning is new to all of us. 

As always, we are the Flying Fish team and we will get through this together. :)

See you soon!

Whistle Stop Opera: Cinderella – A Christmas gift from Opera North…

posted 13 Dec 2020, 02:58 by Louise Sutton

This song resource is being sent out in advance of us sending out our free Whistle Stop Opera: Cinderella performance film to schools by the beginning of next week, so children have time to learn the short song in preparation for watching and joining in with the performance!

This is being sent out as a Christmas gift from Opera North, as we realise it hasn’t been possible for schools to undertake Christmas trips out to the theatre during this festive season. We hope this will bring the magic of opera to pupils and teachers and will be the next best thing to bringing a live Christmas production.

Please find links to the resources below:

Newsletter - Christmas!

Hello Flying FIsh,

As we approach the end of Term 1, and reflect on all that we have learnt, I hope that you all have enjoyed your first term in Y4.

This half-term we have loved learning about the Romans and the children have shown tremendous enthusiasm and curiosity when learning about different aspects of Roman life such as: Roman Emperors, Roman Legionaries, the Roman Empire and Boudicca's rebellion. I have been amazed by the knowledge which the children have retained from lesson to lesson, and have been super impressed with their home learning. 
The children have worked incredibly hard this term, and have been super stars! As we move towards the final week, we are excited to do some fun, Christmas activities with the class including making our own Christmas cards, decorations and more!

A couple of reminders:
Wednesday 9th December - Christmas Dinner
Friday 11th December - Christmas Jumper Day

Miss Richardson and I are looking forward to the next term , when we will be starting our new topic 'Farm Frenzy' inspired by our class novel Charlotte's Web by E.B White. We will be learning about: farming across the globe; ethical choices around food; how good make its way from the fields to our plates as well as how we can keep our bodies healthy. 

We hope that you all have a lovely, well-deserved Christmas break and we look forward to seeing you all in 2021. 
Have a magical Christmas!

Children's University

Hello to my lovely musicians. Everyone who has an instrumental lesson in school are all now set up online to be able to record their instrumental lesson each week. When you go for your violin, clarinet, guitar, or recorder lesson please ask your teacher for a sticker and put it in your passport - or if you forget your reading diary. Your grown-ups can then log your hours on the children university website:

On your sticker is the stamp - which is the colour and four digit code. 

Any problems please email me:

Wow, Wow, Wow!

Year 4, you have absolutely blown me away with your music learning this half term. You have done such an amazing job and your teachers should be so very proud of you because I know I am! It is really clear that you are enjoying your music lessons and even though I'm not in your classroom you are completing the activities super well. Maybe you don't need me after all!!! 

I am so excited for term 2 and have already started planning you some exciting lessons!

Have a lovely Christmas.

Mrs Sutton

I hope that you enjoyed looking at the children's beautiful artwork which they have created to mark Remembrance Day. I am so proud with how they turned out and have added some pictures to this post for you to have a look! 

Half-Term update from Flying Fish class

posted 11 Nov 2020, 00:31 by Lauren Tingle

Good morning everyone! :)

I just wanted to share a short update to celebrate some of the highlights from the previous term and remind you about some of the things which are coming up in the run up to Christmas. The children are really enjoying our current Romans topic and we have seen some incredible home learning. We are loving the children's enthusiasm and curiosity both in the classroom and beyond. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for engaging with 'our new home learning platform 'SeeSaw' - it is great so see so many children are working as hard at home as they are in school.

Just a few reminders of key dates:
Wednesday - New home learning activities will be uploaded onto 'SeeSaw' on a Tuesday evening ready for the children to access on a Wednesday.
Thursday - Children need to come to school in their PE kits.
Friday - We check reading diaries. Children should be reading at least three times per week and if they do, they will receive a raffle ticket and be entered into our reading raffle which is drawn at the end of each half term.

We are really excited for the half-term ahead and will keep you updated.

Miss T and Miss R
