School Closure March 2020 - Home Learning

Home Learning

 

Please find below supporting documents and websites to ensure that your child's learning continues even if the school closes or if your child is having to self-isolate.

 

Year 4 Current Learning

 

Maths

 

In maths we are following the White Rose Maths scheme of learning. White Rose Maths are also busy putting together lots of free home learning packs and the general link to their website is below.

 

We are currently learning about fractions and our learning can be found at:

Next we will move onto decimals:

Regular maths tasks will be posted onto our Class page/Class Dojo in the event of closure.

 

We are also using  https://urbrainy.com/mtc or https://mathsframe.co.uk/en/resources/resource/477/Multiplication-Tables-Check to practise for our MTC. These can also be accessed at home and the children are used to using these webpages.

 

Reading

 

We have also just started our Starbooks reading challenge. This can be any reading at home for the next 60 days. Can you make use of the time at home to read, read and read some more? Please continue to update the children's yellow reading records as normal.

 

All children should have a home reading book and we will be checking this before any closure.

 

As a class we are currently looking at the author Tom Palmer. He writes stories involving sport, crime and history.

 

We are midway through the story of 'Rocky of the Rovers'. A story based around the Women's World Cup in France last year. This has linked with our European geography and learning about France.

 

This and other free stories by Tom can be found at https://tompalmer.co.uk/free-reads/. I will be posting this onto the Dojo on Friday this week (20.03.2020) along with associated tasks.

 

Science

 

In Science, we are currently looking at Living things and their habitats. We are using Hamilton Trust for our lessons and activities.

Spend some time outside safely looking at living things in your local environment.

 

SPaG

 

Currently we are using https://spellingframe.co.uk/spelling-rule/3/Year-3-and-4 for our spelling work.

 

We are upto rule 9:

There are lots of games and an online test on this website. The children are used to using this online tool.

 

Useful websites (to be updated during the event of closure)

 

 

Class Dojo

 

If school does have to close then we will be contacting you regularly via Class Dojo, if you cannot access this service then please make this a priority so that YOUR child's learning can continue despite the interruptions. 

 

Stay safe and look after each other.

 

Mr. Birchall and Mrs. Charnley
