Thank you Year 2 for our nomination, so here is our Jersusalema challenge video.
Summer 1 - New information
In Year 4, we have four members of staff, who are all listed below.
Mr Fairclough (Teacher Monday - Tuesday) Mrs Donaldson (Teacher Wednesday - Friday)
Mrs Sutcliffe (Teaching Assistant Mon- Wed) Ms Ashraf (Teaching Assistant Thurs- Fri)
Any children in school still need to come in their PE kits on a Wednesday and a Friday as well will be doing PE in School.
Returning to school
As all pupils return to school after Lockdown, we want to ensure that we support them to continue in their learning and fill any gaps lockdown has created.
To help us do this I strongly encourage pupils to complete learning at home, where possible.
Please ensure your child using Bug Club, TTRS and Spelling shed each week.
Each day we would like pupils to read using Bug Club and then either TTRS or spelling shed for a short period of time.
Each Friday in Year 4 we will be having a 20-minute treat activity for pupils who have done this and we will use this as an opportunity for pupils who haven't been able to access these resources to do this.
Summer 1 - Burps, Bottoms and Bile
Our topic this half term is all about the human body and our digestive system.
We will be exploring this across many of our subjects, which are outlined in the curriculum newsletter below.
We are also looking at The Battle of Hastings, which took place in 1066, as part of our History this half term.
Home Learning (Bubble closure)
Unfortunately in the current situation, there is still the risk that individual bubbles will need to close due to positive cases.
If this happens, our home learning will take place via Google Classroom, and live video lessons will take place daily at 9am, 11am and 1:00pm.
All of these will be recorded and added to the assignment set, just in case you aren't available.
Below is a copy of our new weekly timetable.
Friday mornings will always be Mass which is live-streamed from the parish Facebook page – a link will be sent to you each Friday. As well as this Friday afternoon will be a screen-free well-being afternoon. Tasks will be shared each Friday that don't require any on-screen time. The ‘Other Tasks’ are tasks we will set for you outside the three lessons we deliver to you online.
If you have any trouble at all with Google classroom please do contact us and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
However, try our Google Classroom help guides first.
RE at home
As we are at home in these difficult times I would like you to think carefully about spending some special time with God and your faith, in the hope that he can guide us all through. Below are some different resources for you to use and complete.
Character Calendar and action calendar
Complete any square in any order when they do something that displays that particular virtue or action.
CAFOD Home Learning resources:
Maths - White Rose Maths
We are currently focusing on Multiplication and Division in Year 4. This will include including securing our knowledge of our times tables and applying these to a variation of problems.
Below are the Year 3 and 4 Workbooks that link to Fractions.
Why don't you have a go at these at home to see what you can remember from Year 3 or challenge yourself with our Year 4 work.
Multiplication (Times tables) check (Cancelled)
In June 2021, children in Year 4 would normally be taking part in a National Times table check. This means that children would be expected to know all their times tables, including division facts. Due to COVID 19 this will not go ahead. However, to best support children's development moving towards Year 5, we would like you to focus as much as you can on practicing these timetables.
As a school we use Times Table Rock stars, meaning children should be familiar with this. Please continue to use this to develop their knowledge of all timetables as well as other resources listed below.
You can access the TTRS here: Times Table Rockstars Login Page
