Year 4 Learning Challenge

Learning Challenge
23rd February 2017
Dear Parents and Carers,
We are delighted to provide you with the Year 4 Learning Challenge for this half of the Spring Term.
This learning challenge gives the children the chance to look at an artist, musician, person and a poet relating to what they are learning about in school. It is entirely up to your child whether they select the poem, significant person, music or painting, or a combination of all 4. They can also select the activities that they want to attempt, though we would encourage them to be ambitious and to deepen their learning as much as possible.
Although the Learning Challenge is entirely optional, and is in addition to the daily expectation of 15 minutes’ reading, 15 minutes’ times tables rehearsal and 15 minutes’ spellings practice, we have found that a large proportion of children have voluntarily taken up the challenge and have gained a great deal from it. We would therefore greatly appreciate your encouragement to participate. The children will receive a special Learning Challenge certificate at the end of the half term on completion of a project that shows a significant level of effort and challenge undertaken.
Should you have any problems regarding this, or any other issue, please do not hesitate to contact us. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support, and look forward to working with you this academic year.
Yours sincerely,

Mr Lander Miss Taylor Mr Nicol

Poem

Sir Isaac Newton’s laws of motion by Celia Berrell
Newton was a clever man.
An avid scientific fan.
He questioned many things he saw.
Like ones we had no answers for.


He thought them through right to their cores.
Then gave us many handy laws.


Newton’s First Law Of Motion:
Without a force of push or pull
an object will remain quite still.
With just one push at just one time
that object moves in one straight line.

Newton’s Second Law Of Motion:
A bigger Force accelerates
an object that is heavy-weight.
While objects of a smaller mass
don’t need much Force to move them fast.


So Newton noticed they obey
that Force will equal m times a.


Newton’s Third Law Of Motion:
Now bend a stick. Before it cracks
you’ll feel its force of pushing back.
For every action there will be
an equal one – opposingly.


Without his formulas in place
we’d soon get lost in outer space.
So Isaac’s Laws help us traverse
the reaches of our universe.
