Fuchsia Home Learning


Dear Fuchsia Class,

I hope that you are all well and rested? I was just wondering what you all have been up to? I have been busy writing your reports and if you haven’t already done so, please could your parents email me and let me know what you have enjoyed doing in year 4?  Any trips you liked going on? What you have improved on and anything that you would like to improve on in the future? I can’t believe that this is the last term of summer now. I have missed you all and hope that we will see each other very soon. Keep practising your times tables and keep safe and well.

Best wishes

Mrs Siddique.


Walt: clarify vocabulary

This term, we will be writing a report about an endangered animal. First, I would like you to watch a report on the BBC about endangered primates.

Watch BBC –Protecting Primates  Series 1 – Episode 3   https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000j4x0

As you are watching the documentary, write down any tricky words. Next, research the definition in a dictionary or online  https://www.lexico.com/

Here is how your work should be laid out:


Walt: Identify changes and dangers to the local environment


Watch Blue Planet II trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGfIsMMTbL4

Watch BBC Bitesize How do human beings affect our environment


Can you recognise positive and negative changes in the local habitat? For example, what are good things about our local environment (parks, open spaces) and what are the things that are not good (litter, pollution?)


WALT: identify the difference between physical and human geography

Watch these two clips and then sort out the pictures into whether they are physical or human features. (Man-made or occur naturally.) https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/geography-ks1–ks2-the-united-kingdom/zhtgrj6

Your challenge is given to you in the song! In fact, there are quite a few challenges, so have fun.

With those around you, think of some more challenges to put into the song, for example, sing the next chorus in an Australian accent, sing a chorus whilst keeping a balloon in the air (no hands allowed), or perform the whole song with actions but without laughing.

Fuchsia Home learning 18th May 2020

Dear Fuchsia class,

I can’t believe this is the last letter for this half term! The past five weeks have been busy with VE day 75 celebrations, clapping for our carers, the Year 4 Times Tables Rock Star tournament and the Maths poster competition.  In addition, you have been completing your weekly home learning and reading every day! What an amazing achievement!  I am SO proud of you.


Next term, we will be writing a report about endangered animals!  There are so many to choose from and I have given you some examples below. One of those animals that I absolutely love is the Polar Bear, not only for their soft white fur, but also because they are vulnerable creatures. Sadly, with climate change, the sea ice is melting earlier and earlier leaving less time for our furry friends to hunt for food.    

I miss you all very much and I would love to hear about what you have been up to during this half term. Therefore, I have enclosed a letter template so you can write a letter back to me.  I can’t wait to receive your lovely replies.


Well done for your hard work and have a restful break!


Best wishes,

Mrs Siddique



Your task:

During half term, I would like you to research facts about an endangered animal of your choice and answer the questions below. Here are a few examples of endangered animals:

You can find more endangered animals on the following websites: https://ypte.org.uk/factsheets/endangered-animals-of-the-world/endangered-animals 



What does endangered mean?

Which group does your animal belong to? You might wish to look at our previous home learning on classification (vertebrates, invertebrates, mammals…)

Where in the world does your animal live?

What is your animal’s habitat?

What does your animal eat?

Who are your animal’s predators?

Why is your animal endangered?

What can be done to save your animal?

Remember to write complete sentences with subject, verb and clause. Use adjectives and powerful verbs and give as much details as possible about your endangered animal.

Dear Fuchsia Class,

I hope you are all well? A big well done to Fuchsia class for winning the times tables Rockstars competition against Flamingo class.

How have you all been? It would be nice to see what you all have been doing please email me if you can and show me how you have been spending your time. (year4@garfield.enfield.sch.uk).

This Friday is a special day to remember. Why? On 8th May, Britain will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day when the guns fell silent at the end of World War II in Europe. This is a chance to remember and say “For those who gave so much, we thank you.” Our veterans and soldiers are now helping us and supporting the NHS in the battle against the coronavirus virus. They are still risking their lives or providing amazing inspiration as the hero Captain Tom has done through fundraising. So what can we do to show our support and thanks on Friday? We would like you to make some bunting or a poster to display for V.E.75 celebrations. Please take pictures and send them to our school. There is an excellent website to give you lots of ideas and information at bbc.co.uk/makeadifference.

Also, Enfield Council is launching a story writing competition. Details are available in a separate letter. The deadline for the writing competition is Friday 5th June and your parent must fill in an authorisation form.

Sharpen those pencils and tap into your amazing imaginations!

Stay safe and best wishes to you all,

Mrs Siddique

Letter to Fuchsia Class

Dear Fuchsia Class,

I hope you are all well and keeping busy. Let me tell you what I have been up to during the holidays. I have tried to keep to a routine most days as I find it helps me a lot keeping track of what day it is. I get up in the morning and go for a run (ok a brisk walk) on my running machine at home. Then I cook food for the family. I have been making all my children’s favourite food like pasta, lasagne and chicken curry. Also l made flapjacks and chocolate brownies and if I don’t say so myself, they tasted really good. I’m thinking of making homemade scones later today.

I hope that you all helpful at home for your parents. Please keep practising your times tables because when we get back to school I am going to give you a really hard times tables test and I expect you to get really good marks.

Keep safe and well everyone, I miss you all and can’t wait to hear about your stories when we get back. You can send me an email to tell me what you have been up to.

Best wishes

Mrs Siddique.

Dear Fuchsia Class,

I hope that you are well and keeping yourself busy. What have you all been up to? I have been very busy tidying up my whole house and cooking a lot of food. I try to do at least half an hour of exercise every day and am playing a lot of board games with my children. So far they have all beaten me playing a game of drafts, chess and scrabble. I’m going to play connect 4 soon and will be thinking of you all playing because that’s what we used to play during wet play.

I hope that you are all helping your Mum or Dad out at home. Remember to read every day and keep up with your work. Try not to spend so much time on the computer but instead go for a little jog around you home. Do 10 minutes of exercise every morning, do 10 star jumps, 10 squats, and 1 minute of running on the spot. Keep repeating this for 10 mins.

Here is a list of tasks to do whilst you are away from school:


Can you learn 5 new words and write down the definition of each word.
