"“What are you making for dinner tonight Mum?” Charlie yelled. Mum replied with a grin on her face, “You’re going to be cooking tonight!”.

Challenge: Create a new shield to go with the armour and design a crest to go on it. Can you explain why you chose this design?

Look outside a window; draw a sketch of what you can see. Think about how different times of the day would change the scene.


Reflect on your sketch, how does it make you feel?

How many different exercises can you include?

Take time to relax and stretch out all the muscles in your body.

Hi Year 4! This week we are looking at digimaps again.

I would like you to find out how our local area has changed over time.

To do this, first log in to digimaps for school, using the username ha40lr  (remember the 0 is a zero) and password: smides7219
Then once you are in, pick a location. You could pick your house, school or a local landmark, like the Sainsburys or Asda in South Ruislip. Once you have found your landmark, zoom in and use the map selector tool to switch between now, the 1950s and the 1890s.

Can you find 3 differences between how it was and how it is now? Tell someone in your house how the local area has changed. Do you think it has changed for the worse or for the better? Why?

Why do you think it has changed so much?
If you can't get the map selector tool to work, it is because it only works on certain levels of zoom. Try zooming in more to a specific point on the map.

Have fun! Mrs Fraser.
