    Maths – Day 2

    Good morning Year 4

    I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend. I was really pleased to see that so many of you had engaged with your home learning last week on Education City. I also received some photographs of completed White Rose maths activities – well done! It is also good to see that some of you have made a start on the mandala art project that was uploaded onto Seesaw towards the end of last week.

    Below is Morrigan’s beautiful nature mandala:

    This week, I will be uploading the White Rose maths activities each day for you to complete. We are focusing on multiplication and division for the beginning of the spring term. When you have completed the task set, please remember to add your work to Seesaw by taking a photograph and pressing the button below:

    This will save your work to your class journal so that I am able to approve your completed tasks. You also have English and maths work set for you in Education City to complete. 

    If you are having any problems with your home learning please send me a message on Seesaw or contact the school office.

    I look forward to seeing your work

  • Books for Topics have been busy finding some of the best online storytimes for children to access freely at home. The QR codes and links in the document link to story readings on YouTube and all of the books that have been chosen are read aloud by their fabulous authors and illustrators. Many of the stories are also part of our year group literature spines. Happy reading and don’t forget to let your class teacher know if you are enjoying the stories using Seesaw. Happy reading! 

I am really looking forward to teaching you all this year; we have some fun and exciting topics to learn about across the year, including a European study of Barcelona and finding out all about the Romans. Mrs Foster is our very experienced learning coach who will be supporting in class this year.

Mrs Foster and I have been impressed by your focused start to the year with many of your names already proudly displayed on our class celebration board. Remember to always follow our school rules:

Be Ready

Be Respectful

Be Safe

We have also been impressed by the presentation of your work in your books and look forward to every child achieving their pen licence by the end of the year.

Below, you and your parents will find some information about what we will be learning this year and our expectations for homework.

Keep up the good work Year 4!

Homework

Your child will be given spellings to complete each week. These will be based on the spelling rule we are currently learning in class as well as words from the Y3/4 statutory list. They will also bring a reading book home to read daily by themselves or with an adult at home. Reading is so important for your child’s progress therefore we recommend 10 minutes reading each night. In Year 4, we ask that parents sign their child’s reading diary. However, children are encouraged to write in their own comments.

Every Thursday, your child will be set homework via an online platform – Education City. They will have a week to complete the tasks set. Your child’s login has been sent home to you with instructions on how to access their account. This is such a fun resource for the children to access their learning from home. Enjoy!

We will also set special projects and ‘teach for ten’ presentations for your child to complete from time to time.

In Year 4 we actively encourage independent research so if your child wants to complete some extra work at home around some of the topics we will be learning about, please encourage them to bring it in to share with the class.
