Welcome to Year 4!
Firstly, we wanted to say what a wonderful start to the year we have had so far. The Year 4 team have been extremely impressed with how quickly the children have risen to new challenges and their positive learning attitudes.
We know these are difficult times and we want to support you and your children who are having to stay at home, so we will be posting work suggestions regularly. Children can give themselves house points for work they try, keeping a tally of how many they have accumulated . Please save any work you do, we would love to see it when we are back.
This week's announcements:
Monday 6th July 2020
This week we have some big news. As many of you are coming in to school during the last week of term, there will be no home learning put on the website that week. Which means that this week is the last week of home learning! We know that it has been tough at times, but we hope that you have also found things that inspire you, and have used some of the time to follow your own interests. There is a letter attached below from Mrs Barwell which explains this in more detail and has some links to other websites you could use if you would like to continue learning at home.
Here is what will upload this week:
Every day - English, Maths, reading for pleasure
Monday - Spellings, Reading, Active activity
Tuesday - Science
Wednesday - Art
Thursday - Computing
Friday - R.E and answers for the reading task.
Extras - P4C and Mental Health
We can't wait to see you all when you come into school, we hope you enjoy this last week of home learning :)
Have a good week! :)
Miss Prudence, Miss Hastings, Mrs Lewis and Mrs Cochrane.
White Rose Hub
White Rose Hub are now asking parents for a subscription. You do not need to do this, as the school has a subscription. We are not using those resources right now, but if we do need them we will upload them onto the website for you to access from there.
Learning at home
Here is an outline of how often we will be updating the tasks. We know that at home everyone has different technology that they are accessing our learning on, so we are trying to be mindful of this. We will be putting up some worksheets but these do not need to be printed, the children can read the questions from the computer and write the answers on paper if this is better for you.
Please don’t feel overwhelmed with the amount of tasks on the website, there is no expectation for your child to complete all the tasks being set for home learning, we just want to provide choice for your children- just send us on dojo whatever you can achieve so we can celebrate your learning with you.
Please find attached at the bottom of the page some key messages for parents about learning at home.
At school we take a break after each hour of learning, so make sure you are still taking lots of breaks at home. If you have any questions about the learning please contact your class teacher through Class Dojo.
Each parent should have received an email inviting you to join us on Class Dojo. Through this, you are able to message your class teacher with any questions you have about the children's learning, this will be checked each day. If you haven't received an invite please check you junk mail, then email the school office asking them to forward the message to your class teacher so we can invite you to join us.
The children can also use their own account to send us pictures and writing of their work, which we will respond to. Children who were in school on 20.3.2020 were given a QR code to access this. Everyone else's parents will be sent the class code through dojo, these children can join in by opening the dojo app or going to the website dojo.me and choosing 'enter class code'.
This might be useful if your child is worried about coronavirus. This book has been produced by an intensive care nurse at Southampton General Hospital to help explain things to them:
Take care and stay safe!
