Year 4 (2020) Home Learning:
A message to Year 4:
I know this isn't the Summer Term we'd planned or hoped for and understand that it must feel a bit strange for you all but we really are very proud of you for trying your hardest and also supporting each other, this has been so lovely to see. Thank you for the photos, posts, emails and messages of encouragement to each other- you are all absolute superstars and please keep it up, we can do this together!
Take care, stay safe and keep smiling 🌈
A message to the parents:
We are very aware that things will be difficult for many of you in terms of trying to complete activities with more than one child/ look after younger children, work from home yourself and also keep your family and home safe, healthy and running with a new routine. We want to provide plenty of learning resources that can support you, but certainly do not wish to add additional or unnecessary pressure during a time that is potentially stressful enough. With this in mind, please use the blog timetable and Home Learning page as you feel is appropriate for your child and personal circumstances. Remember I’m here to help too so please just let me know if there’s anything I can do or anything you think you may need to be able to complete the activities set.
Thank you again and remember you’re doing an amazing job! 🌈
We've been asked to take a virtual register each day- I know that you may have a lot going on at home so all you need to do for this is Hi5 on Marvellous Me, send a photo, completed activity or write a comment about what you have done that day/ how you've found the different activities. As always, please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
Thank you again

In addition to the above, your child's 'Home Learning Pack’ has also got Numeracy, Literacy and Topic activities that can keep being revisited. In the packs we have focused predominantly on key Reading, Writing and Maths skills and would like children to dedicate at least 20 minutes to each of these subject areas a day. It is also important that children look after their mental and physical health; please see the Wellbeing icon above for links, ideas and activities. Joe Wicks will be doing a daily work out at 9 am every day and we hope you'll join us in doing this! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6r99N3kXME
Maths: a key focus for Year 4 will be the times tables (up to 12 x 12) and there is a booklet in each pack to support your child's learning. We have suggested that they choose a different times table focus for each day and can use the provided Maths Jotter to help if necessary. There are also a number of Maths sheets linking to specific skills and some activities written into their Jotters.
Literacy: we have provided a full list of spellings (to also be used as a handwriting focus) along with reading comprehension activities to work through. Children are also encouraged to apply skills learned in Literacy this academic year e.g. writing a short story or set of instructions. Please ensure that children continue to read for 20 minutes a day.
Take care, stay safe and keep smiling,
Ms Waterland and Mrs Kaur 🌈
