Music this week is slightly different to how it has been for the last few weeks. 
 

We have set some new songs to listen to and appraise on Charanga - have a go, we bet you know them! REMEMBER - your login is on your parent consultation form!

 

Also, here is the link to a few songs that I thought you might enjoy listening to and learning. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qLXcC7JLMo This is a special lockdown edition of “I’ll be there by Jess Glynne”

 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evfOzPrzIu0 This is a special Disney song that has been written during lockdown, about our families and friends in lockdown. DISCLAIMER FOR PARENTS: it is a tear jerker! 

 
I have seen that some of you are trying to/are learning the piano, so I have put some keyboard learning up there for you too. 
 
 
Here are a few songs that you can be learning whilst you are at home. We have done some of them before, and some of them are new - enjoy!

Little extras to help you...
 Espresso - login details: username: student11039 password: milborne
If you're feeling worried about the coronavirus and the many changes that are going to affect you, read this social story with a grown up and talk about how you are feeling. 
Make a worry doll - Worry dolls are handmade dolls, most often made in Guatemala from wire, wool and small pieces of fabric. The dolls are often tiny, though Western versions can be much larger. Traditionally, the dolls are given to children to help them with their worries. Children will share their concerns with the dolls and then place them under their pillows where their worries will go away over night. 
Pre-closure
Curriculum Information
For our spellings this year, we will be working our way through our "purple words", these are the statutory words for year 3 and 4 (attached below on the "Years 3 and 4 spelling list".) 
 
Each week we will send home 5 of these purple words with 3 spellings which are related to the spelling rules we have learnt that week. 
 
These spellings will be tested on a Friday at the back of the children's homework books.
