Home Learning During Coronavirus Pandemic
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to the Year 4 home learning page and the start of Term 6! We hope you have had an enjoyable half-term break at home with your families.
A brief update about Y4 Home Learning this term. For Maths we will continue using the White Rose Maths home learning resources (which we also use in school ). These include a daily learning video to support your child’s understanding and an accompanying worksheet to complete(answer sheet to be provided). Additional Times Tables practice sheets will also be supplied. Please use the link to BBC bitesize if you would like to extend your child’s learning further, as well as Mathletics.
Our topic this term should be “Castles”. This is usually a very popular topic with our Year 4 children with lots of opportunities to explore related areas of learning( e.g. The Battle of Hastings, kings, castles around the UK and famous battles). Therefore we will try our best to base our English and Topic curriculum learning around this!
We are always delighted to receive any work from the children which we can share in our Year 4 Gallery below. Also if you would like to sign up to our Year 4 Dojo page please contact the office. We will also continue to upload a weekly letter for your child to read, just to say hello from us!
The Year 4 team continue to wish all our families the very best for the upcoming weeks.
Best wishes to you all!
Emma Crocombe and Lizzie Clarkson

Friday – Challenge day!
Work through this transition booklet over the week!
Miss Clarkson is sorry for the delay with uploading the recording of this week’s chapter! It’s been a busy week!
Project work (To be completed over the week):
We have heard that during this lovely summer weather, lots of you have been visiting the river to go swimming which I am sure is great fun! We are sure those of you who do this often, are very aware of how to stay safe in the water! This week we would like you to create a poster or leaflet all about how to keep safe in the water. Your poster could be about general water safety or specific to a certain type of water, such as swimming pools or the beach. Decide whether your poster should be aimed at younger children, older children or adults.
Attached below is some information that might help you when making your poster. We would love to see some of your posters!
