Home Learning Packs:

Please find below the home-learning for the weeks ahead. These will be updated weekly with the new week's learning being uploaded the Sunday before the week starts. There are a variety of activities to include the multiple aspects of learning we would be covering in our curriculum under normal circumstances. The Maths is focused on progressing through the curriculum, following White Rose, as we do in school supported by Maths Shed PowerPoints whereas the English is building on reading and writing skills, following the planning we would be using in-class under normal circumstances. You will also find your weekly spellings in these packs. 

 

This should be in addition to and not to replace your already existing schedule, so please carry on with your TTRockstars practising times tables; Joe Wicks P.E - keeping fit and active; code.org where you can develop programming skills; and some of the other activities you have already been completing. Aim to incorporate these packs into your weekly routine. The English and Maths is designed to be worked on daily, as we would do in-class. 

As mentioned, this is designed to last the week, so please don't feel pressured to complete it all at once. Feel free to print these out at home, or contact the school to pick up a copy. Alternatively, you can use any plain or lined paper to hand to complete the majority of the activities, so don't feel pressured to print or collect everything. We would love to see examples of great work, so keep posting on Class Dojo Portfolios. Finally, should you or your child have any questions, feel free to get in touch with the Year 4 team via Class Dojo.

Please find this week's spelling words below. Try using one of the spelling strategies to practise them and post a picture of your work on your class Dojo Portfolio page! As next week is the Easter holidays, the next set of spellings will be uploaded on the Wednesday of the next school week. If you want to, you could practise the Year 3 and 4 Word list spellings in the meantime. Please find this word list previously posted further down the Year 4 Class Page.

Home Learning Week 2

 

Please find below the home-learning for week 2. There are a variety of activities to include the multiple aspects of learning we would be covering in our curriculum under normal circumstances. The Home-Learning Project gives some suggestions for some generic activities you could complete throughout the week, whereas the English, Maths and Science is more structured and is designed to enable your child to keep up with their learning and access the curriculum. This should be in addition to and not to replace your already existing schedule, so please carry on with your Joe Wicks P.E, your code.org and some of the other activities you have already been completing. Aim to incorporate these packs into your weekly routine. The English and Maths is designed to be worked on daily, as we would do in-class. 

As mentioned, this is designed to last the week, so please don't feel pressured to complete it all at once. We would love to see examples of great work, so keep posting on Class Dojo Portfolios. Finally, should anyone have any questions, feel free to get in touch with Mr Toms, Ms Grant or Mrs Oldham.

Please find below the home-packs of learning for your children.

These are digital copies of the packs already sent home with children. If you don't have access to a printer, your child can copy the question onto some plain or lined paper instead. They are divided into packs for Greater Depth, Expected Standard and Working Towards the Expected Standard to suit the abilities of your child. If you are unsure which pack would be most suitable, please feel free to contact your child's teacher on Class Dojo. 

Computing Home-Learning

 

As a school we are signed up for a website called code.org. To support children with computing, code.org is a self run website for children to develop skills and have fun with completing projects such as Minecraft hour of code. As teachers we can set activities and track how your children are doing it. Please aim for one or two activities per-week. We will be sending children's logins directly via classdojo. 

 

Again, you can find the website at code.org

Spring Term 2

 

Animals Including Humans

 

This half term we will be looking at all sorts of animals, including humans. Specifically we will be exploring digestion, from teeth to the... other end! We will analyse food chains, classify animals and look at their habitats. We will also take on the role of artists as we critique and re-imagine the art of Henri Rousseau. Finally, Year 4 will discover what it is like in 'the tropics' and the equator. All of this will be supported by an exciting visit to Yorkshire Wildlife Park to get up close and personal to some of the animals we will be studying.  

 

Our core text for Spring 2 is The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers. We are also exploring a variety of other text types through the daily teaching of writing and reading as well as through our wider curriculum.

We love reading! How many of our Year 4 Recommended Reads have you read so far?

We had a wonderful World Book Day in Year 4. We snuggled down to share a book with our friends and teddies in our PJs!

Roman Day Autumn 2 2019

 

What an amazing day we had learning all about the Romans. We had the opportunity to look at Roman artefacts as well as trying some of them on! We also learned all about Roman tactics and formations and we had the chance to march in the ‘turtle’ formation, I think Ms Grant and Mr Toms were terrified! 

 

Later that day we discovered the tale of Boudicca and recreated some Celtic jewellery. The patterns were tricky but we tried our best! We finished by playing three games from the Roman times; Liar’s Dice, Ludus Latrunculorum and Knucklebones. All three required a lot of skill but we definitely had some champions in the class! 

 

Have a a look below for some of the pictures from the event.

Autumn 1 2019

Now that we are a few weeks into the term we would like to take this opportunity to welcome all of our Year 4's back to school and say how impressed we are with how they are settling back into school.

 

We would also like to give you some important information:

 

Weekly homework:

  • We expect children to read at least 3 times a week and to record this in their reading diary. This can be anything from their class book to a magazine article, comic or web page. They can read to themselves or to an adult. We will be collecting reading diaries in weekly and rewarding children who are reading regularly.
  • Children have now received their KIRF packs for Autumn 1. This half term we are ensuring children know their number bonds to 100. If your child has not received their pack please see their class teacher. We have    completed a baseline assessment in class and will be assessing them at the end of the half term to check their progress. Children who have made progress will receive certificates.
  • Children also have a weekly spellings test on a Friday and a weekly tables test on a Thursday. We appreciate your help in practising with them at home.
