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 wanted to support you and your children who are having to stay at home, so 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.
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 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 have been to school on 20.3.2020 have been 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'.
Learning at home
Please look to the tabs at the side of this page for the subject headings to find tasks to do at home. These will be updated regularly so keep checking back.
Here is a potential structure for how much time you could spend on each activity (to be done in any order):
30 minutes of reading
15 minutes spelling, punctuation and grammar practice
30 minutes of English work - currently creative writing on pobble365
20 minutes Timestables Rockstars practice
1 a day - fluent in 5 (Maths)
Work your way through some of the maths tasks
30 minutes active time - if possible
1 of the other activities each day (Science, Geography, Computing, Art or French)
And don't forgot to take breaks!
