Extra Idea this week
Why not take part in the online RSPB Big Garden Bird Watch ready for our bird themed Literacy unit next week. All you need to do is spend an hour counting the birds you see in your garden or from your balcony from 29th-31st January, then tell us what you saw. It really is that simple! You could use this information for next Monday’s Literacy task.

Now we have introduced our families, let’s remember how to talk about our pets in Spanish. Watch this video to practise the pronunciation. https://video.link/w/zc9Hb
Then, if you want to, make a poster to remind yourself of all the different pet animal words in Spanish. If your pet is not on the list then see if you can find out what your pet is called in Spanish and add it to your poster.
I have - tengo (ten-go)
a dog - un perro (un pe-rro)
a cat - un gato (un ga-to)
a bird - un pájaro (un pah-xa-ro)
a rabbit - un conejo (un co-ne-xo)
a guinea pig - un conejillo de Indias (un co-ne-xi-yo de in-di-as)
a hamster - un hámster (un am-stair)
a snake - un serpiente (un sair-pi-entay)
a goldfish - un pez de colores (un peth de co-lor-es)
a tortoise - una tortuga (una tor-too-ga)
I haven't got a pet. - No tengo animales. (no ten-go an-i-mal-es)

Before you try today’s task watch the video and try the activities online:
Practise your spellings this week using one of the ideas from the spelling menu below:
What is a secret? Can a secret be a GOOD thing or a BAD thing? Can yo think of a time when someone told you a secret? How did it make you feel? Look at the examples on the sheet and decide if they are good or bad secrets, putting them in two lists. Can you think of any others?
Then watch the video on good and bad secrets: “Do you have a secret?”. Afterwards, can you remember what the good and bad secrets were? Can you add to your two lists?

Activity – Draw members of your family and write their Spanish names along with the English words. Use the word bank below to help you.
PE - This week, we're working on our coordination and agility. Practise these events, recording your achievements, then try to improve your personal best scores.
Try something new on Hour of Code, practice your touch typing skills and/ or spend sometime on Timestable Rockstars or challenge yourself with Hit the Button.
Please find a list of the Year 4 spellings for this term in the list below. You might also want to check you can spell the words from the Year 2 list correctly as well.
Why not ask someone at home to give you a spelling test.
Remember to record your score somewhere so you can improve it by the end of the half-term. You can always send it to your teacher – just make sure they know which list you chose.
Now, practise the spellings you got incorrect using any of the methods from the spelling menu on the file.
Please read books, magazines and comics as often as you can. Keep a journal of what you read and record the thoughts and ideas these texts inspire.
