Welcome to Year 4
Mrs Firth, Miss Bolger, Mr Pirbhai and Miss Williamson
From Monday 11th May we will be changing how we upload work for some year groups. Years 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 – we will start to use Google Classroom please wait for your letter in the post for more information on this.
Please note! Google classroom is new to us and we are bound to experience some teething problems and technical issues – if this happens, bear with us as we sort them out!
Please check out Mr Marshall and Mr Pirbhai's new exercise videos on the website. These are fun exercises you can do at home with the family.
Under classroom pages, please click on the Physical Education page.
School Closure Work
Each child is expected to complete a Maths and Literacy activity each day.
The foundation activity will normally be a project to be completed over the week.
We have separated the work into daily folders and then sub folders of each subject. Please only complete one days work at a time.
The Year 4 Team
Homework Information for Parents
In Year 4, the children will be given 4 pieces of homework each week: Guided Reading, Spellings, Literacy and Maths. We would expect children to spend about 20 minutes on each piece of homework across a week. The homework will be set on a Friday and due in the following Friday so that children have a week to complete the tasks.
For Guided Reading we expect the children to do a minimum of 10 minutes reading each night and they may be set specific homework on the days they read with the teacher or teaching assistant.
If you would like to carry out extra activities here are some options you may wish to choose:
- discussing key characters and settings
- making a list of unfamiliar words and their meanings
- discussing the book with your child and the events that occur
Spellings are given every Friday which must be learnt and practiced using sentences DAILY as we carry out a spelling check the following Thursday.
Maths homework will be updated on Mathletics on a Friday and the children have a week to complete the set activities as well as play some of the games on 'Live Mathletics'. Please let us know if your child has problems accessing the internet so that we can ensure they have alternative homework!
There are also extra maths resources on the 'be a mathemagician' page on the school website.
Literacy homework will take place in a homework book. Literacy homework can be submitted in the homework book by the following Friday.
Please ensure that your child is completing homework and submitting it on time.
We really appreciate all the hard work you do with your child at home.
