Keep going and send me your work each day:)

Tuesday 2nd June
Good morning everyone
Well. it was a different day yesterday - more children but still very quiet!
I managed to look at everyone's work sent to me by 8 pm, so thank you for that. Lots of neat and well presented work - well done.
Today's work is all below as well as a message from Tom, the CMAT lay chaplain.
Take time to read everything, then try your best. ( I apologise for the slightly blurry Maths document!)
Here is the link to this weeks Missionary Discipleship challenge: http://chaplaincyblog.aquinas-cmat.org/2020/05/06/missionary-discipleship/
This weeks challenge it Pentecost based; taking inspiration from the Disciples, our challenge this week is to share a message of love or hope with someone in a different language. Remember to take a photo or video showing the challenge being completed and send it in to me by Thursday. Perhaps this could be something a group of students do in school, to send a message to friends still at home. Perhaps it could be a written message, or something done with sign language.

Monday 1st June
I hope everyone had a lovely half term break - we did. Hasn't it been marvellous weather? We spent 3 long and hardworking days clearing and re-planting part of our garden. We enjoyed a BBQ as a reward!
And so off we go again!
Our final Year 4 topic is called ... 'HUNTED'.
Our English and Topic work is all based around this theme and it is a good one!
Regarding this half term's Maths work, we are NOT using BBC bItesize for a while as it does not cover the final sections of the Y4 curriculum. The daily work will be posted on this page like we do for English, RE and Topic.
Today's work outline and lesson sheets are all below. I have also put the recommended daily timetable here again as a reminder. Of course, if you have extra time you may try the BBC daily lessons as well!
WELL DONE TO THE BOYS FOR WINNING THE TIMES TABLES ROCK STARS BATTLE BEFORE HALF TERM! COME ON GIRLS - THERE'S A NEW BATTLE SET FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS!
From June 1st, all staff are in school everyday working with small groups of children now returning to school. I may not be able to answer your homework questions and reply to your sent work as promptly / often as before, but I will check daily. The daily work will be posted on our page each evening as usual.
Please try really hard now to present work in your exercise book neatly, writing the date and LO clearly.
Here's to more excellent effort and achievements - you are all doing so well. Take a look at the latest pics of your wicked water sculptures and amazing ears!
Have a lovely first day back!
Distance Learning Daily Timetable...
Friday 22nd May
Can you believe it? I can't...where do the days go...?
But before we all have a rest and enjoy some down-time there is still today's work to get through!
Please see today's outline, English and Science activities.
The Science links to sound because it is connected to hearing - make a fun-pair of ears!
I have received a few water 'sculptures' - I'd love some more though, so get busy today!
I enjoyed my days in school this week, but I am looking forward to a break from the computer for a few days!
Have a good day today :)
Thursday 21st May
I was in school yesterday , and I am in again today!
Today's outline, the English lesson and Geography lesson are all below.
For the English you need to visit the listed websites OR use any leaflets you may have at home for places to visit.
Try your best: I am looking forward to seeing your work later today.
I hope you...
Please see the latest message from Tom, our CMAT lay chaplain...
Firstly, thanks again to you all for supporting the Missionary Discipleship programme this term - our trust has been by far the most engaged in this so far. It is wonderful to receive the entries each week showing the fabulous things our staff and young people are doing to raise the spirits of others and to share the love of Jesus with those around them.
Last weeks entries are all up on the chaplaincy website, along with this weeks challenge from Tom Baptist. Here is the link: http://chaplaincyblog.aquinas-cmat.org/2020/05/06/missionary-discipleship/
We would like as many people as possible to complete the challenge. As you will see in the video, this weeks challenge is to share story with someone. This could mean a Bible story or a favourite fiction story. It cold mean a student reading a story to a group of younger students, or recording a story for some younger relatives. It could be relaying a Bible story in a really creative way through art, drama or a storyboard. Feel free to get creative with this one!
Any entries can be send in to me by Thursday to feature on the 'Friday Night Live' live stream.
Thank you all for the work you are doing and for all of your support,
Tom Tom Shannon Lead Lay Chaplain St Thomas Aquinas CMAT

Hey... Mr. Mount recommended this for our class!
GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title on TT Rock Stars
We got in touch with GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS about how fast some of our times tables rockers are getting. After some conversations they have created a new title - "the highest score achieved on ‘Times Tables Rock Stars in one minute!"
To make an Official Attempt, players need to record a video of themselves achieving their highest score in the Studio* and send the video to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23:59 UK time on 4th June 2020.
The highest scores we've seen over the years have been 150+ in a single Studio game so we know the standard for this global title will be high.
Official letter below
Friday 15th May

11.5.20 Please see the message from Tom, our CMAT Lay chaplain....
I hope you are all well and enjoyed the sun over the weekend.
Hopefully you managed to catch 'Friday Night Live' last week as our Trust was extremely well represented yet again, with lots and lots of fantastic entries sent in to show our students being Missionary Disciples.
You can view all of the last two weeks entries, and this weeks challenge here: http://chaplaincyblog.aquinas-cmat.org/2020/05/06/missionary-discipleship/
Please share this link with students, parents and staff and encourage them to complete this weeks challenge. As always, if possible, please get a short video or photo o the challenge being completed and send it to me by Thursday evening. It will then feature on Friday Night Live on YouTube at 6pm.
The challenge this week, as you will see in the video, is to write a letter to, or draw a picture for, your parish priest and send it to them to cheer them up and show we are thinking about them. It would be fantastic to see loads of entries again this week, especially as I will be on the live stream this week and would love to be able to give a shout out to our schools and marvel at all of the good work live on the show.
Thank and God bless,
Tom (Tom Shannon, Lead Lay Chaplain: St Thomas Aquinas CMAT)
Week 3 – Send a letter or a drawing to your parish priest to cheer them up!

Monday 11th May
Good morning everyone and welcome back to another week!
I hope you managed to celebrate in some way on Friday - certainly an important event to remember. We enjoyed a 'social-distancing' street party which was a lovely opportunity to see neighbours for the first time in a long while...even if we had to call out across the road and over fences!
I enjoyed seeing the pictures of your bunting and tea-parties - take a look at a few of the photos below today's work. Well done everyone.
I have also been watching the recent TTRS battle - well done to Lyndon, Sophie, Joseph and Dylan for leading the way and congratulations to the boys - another win! There is a new battle to try now - come on girls!
So to today - the work over-view is below as well as lesson pages for English and R.E. Please read everything carefully, spend no more than 1 hour on each subject and try your best. As usual, begin with Joe Wicks, spend around 10 minutes each on times tables and spellings and 20-30 minutes reading.
Please make sure you are keeping all your wonderful work you are completing at home in your given exercise book. Be sure to stick in any sheets and remember every subject should have the date and learning focus at the top of a new page. We should aim to maintain our high standards of work presentation.
As long as I can see you trying hard, then that will be wonderful.
Have a great day.
MAY 8TH 2020 V.E. DAY - 75 YEARS
We'll meet again...!
Thursday 7th May
So, I was in school again today and it is still too quiet!
Please find today's outline and the English task below. I think the English has uploaded over 2 pages so please scroll down to see the text and the task!
Thank you for the work that you have sent me - I am especially loving seeing your bunting and V.E day decorations.
There won't be any work set for Friday as it's a Bank Holiday, but you can try the special cooking / maths challenge on White Rose if you want. I will check class dojo and the homework link later this evening but after that I really want you to enjoy time with your family - and pause for a moment to think about all those who sacrificed so much during WWII.
I hope that you have a great 'holiday' weekend!
Wednesday 6th May
Please take a minute or two to read the 2 extra messages here today - Mary's month & Tom's message.
Today's work is below as well as some lesson pages you need. Please read everything and have a good try.
I've been sent some smashing pictures of NHS bunting and V.E. Day hats - well done. I'm looking forward to more !
I really appreciate your parents support sending work to me - its great to be able to check how you are doing.
Have a good day - try your best...that's all that really matters.
P.S. Only 3 days left on the latest TTRS tournament and Lyndon is smashing it - come on everyone else - let's see a final push!
W e are praying a decade of the Rosary everyday during May - for vocations and for the end to the Corona virus.
Please think about these good causes when you say any prayers / the Rosary at home.
Tuesday 5th May
Well, I had a very long day yesterday sorting out various IT problems! However, things are back up and running again with a change of class picture - memories of days-out!
Please scroll down to check you have seen everything today!
You'll see a V.E. Day sheet - this was intended to go out yesterday but I hope you'll manage to do the task during this week alongside the Art activity as I feel it's important to think about the meaning of V.E. Day.
Today's work is on our page as well as the details / instructions you will need for the work.
Please read everything and try your best.
I have also put up a couple of picture documents of all your work over the past week or so. I've read some super stories - keep them coming!
