LO: To write a letter

You’ve now finished your final block of English in Year 4!

We are so proud of all that you’ve achieved, and the incredible ideas that you have come up with over the course of our learning together!

Today’s task is a fun and relaxing one- to write a letter! Follow the steps below…

  1. Go through the PowerPoint, thinking about the letters you’ve received and written, then working out which letters are “formal” and “informal”.
  2. Think about who you might like to write a letter to at this time: maybe a family member you miss, a friend. In school we will be thinking about writing a letter to our new teachers or a goodbye letter to teachers from this year!
  3. Have a look at the letter layout poster, it shows you how to arrange a letter and the key features it needs.
  4. Write your letter! It really can be anything you like, lay it out correctly and make sure you have your return address on there (in case someone wants to write back)! You can, of course, decorate and illustrate this to your hearts content.
  5. Follow the video below to make your own origami envelope. If you have glue it’s easier, if not, fancy folds it is! You can then put your letter inside and write the address (and maybe even put a stamp) on the front.

I can’t wait to see your letters and envelopes, and hope you have fun creating your own, thoughtful (probably informal) letters!

LO: To solve a tangram puzzle and create your own

Mr Romano had a lovely lesson planned but Mrs Harrison has other ideas :-)

Here is a little puzzle called a tangram to do. A tangram is an ancient Chinese puzzle where you make pictures using mathematical shapes. 

Once completed take it further and create your own !
