## Home Learning 21.10.21

We hope you are looking forward to the half term holiday as much as we are. This holiday is a time for us to relax and enjoy spending some time at home with our families.

For your home learning we would like you to try and keep a diary about what you have been getting up to each day in the holiday. You could write one sentence about each day or you could pick one particular day and write some sentences about what you got up to. Don’t forget to use capital letters and full stops!

We hope you have a lovely break and we are looking forward to hearing all about what you have been up to when we return.

## Autumn is here!

This week we have been exploring ‘gifts from the trees.’

We have been looking at pine cones, leaves, chestnuts (conkers) and sycamore seeds and using them in our play.

Thank you for all of the Pumpkin and Gould donations. It has been interesting to compare the different shapes and sizes and weights.

See if you can find any special gifts from the trees. Look out for the beautiful autumn colours. 🍁

## 4S Homework 21.10.2021

Black History Month Celebrations

Over the last few weeks, 4S have learned about many important black people who have made great contributions to our history. For your homework this half term, I would like you to pick one of the people we have spoken about this month (or someone else you find interesting) and write their biography. A biography is a a detailed description of a person’s life with facts, background information, and stories from their life.

Below are some of the people that 4S have learnt about this month. You can also check out this video on BBC Newsround to inspire you. Black History Month 2021: What is it? – CBBC Newsround

Keep practising your column addition and subtraction over the half term. Try this challenge:

How many different subtraction and addition problems can you create and solve using only the digits: 2, 4, 6, 8 and 0? What do you notice about your answers? Is there a pattern?

Don’t forget to keep practising your times tables. By next half term, I want everyone 100% confident with their 2,5,10,3 and 4 times tables!
