Hello and welcome to Week 2!
I hope you are all still safe and well. I have added this weeks work below as well as a few new ideas at the very bottom of the page. I am in the process of setting up Class Dojo so that I can can communicate and see some of the lovely work that you have been getting up to! PARENTS : Expect a text wink This will have login details for you.

Under current circumstances I know that it is very stressful for both parents and children. I encourage you all to enjoy this time with each other as well as support in the education of your child. I have put below a couple of useful links that educational sites have added to try and help you guide your child in their home learning. As well as a code to Google Classroom where daily English and Maths activities will be added to complete each day. If we work together we can get through this unprecedented time. Stay safe and take care of each other.

For primary-aged children, take a look at our 5-11 area. Again, this was created with parents in mind so it’s filled with guides and information about what children should be learning in each year group, for each curriculum area.

Spellings

Encourage your child to practise the Year 3/4 Common Exception Words (see list)

Then ask your child to choose 5 Common Exception words. They can then write a synonym, antonym, the meaning and an example of how to use the word in a sentence.
The 'Word Map' is a good way of doing this (Below)

Each child has been given their own login to access TT Rockstars. As you have previously been made aware Year 4 were due to take part in the first national standardized multiplication test. This was to be conducted in June. As it has been announced that GCSE's and SAT's have been cancelled we can assume this is no longer happening. However, it is so important for your child to know upto 12x12 in their multiplications fluently as it underpins a lot of what they do in Maths. Pupil Engagement with this resource will be monitered as it logs when they access and how much involvement they have with it.

Reading

Mon-Fri: Ask your child to read a chapter from their home reading book or a book that they have borrowed from the library.

Following this, ask your child to summarise the events from the chapter. They could bullet point what happened, summarise in a sentence, create a comic strip or present the information in their own creative way.

Your child can log into www.getepic.com

https://www.getepic.com/students
(Please note that it can only be accessed in school hours 6-4. Outside of these hours it may ask for a subscription fee)

Use the class code: bdz8708 and click on their name to access over 30,000 free books. (note: this service only works between 6am-4pm unless you subscribe to the full version)

  • Please note that I have added a reading list based on the topics that we cover in Year 4. I am able to view how many minutes of reading each child has done and how many books they have completed.

Encourage your child to note down any unfamiliar words from the chapter they have read. Explore the meanings of these words by using a dictionary (or google the definition). Try to use the new vocabulary in a sentence.

Project Inspiration

All children have been asked to engage in a project over the period of school closure. The expectation is to complete 1 page a day. If you are stuck for ideas then have a look below. . .

Maths

Daily maths tasks are below. Download and complete for that day. Answers will be uploaded for you to check if you are unsure at the end of the week. 

If you do need any help there are videos to accompany the activities. These will show you what you need to do.

As an additional resource you can access daily maths challenges here:

This is normally our morning work and is of varying difficulty. Choose the one you feel is most appropriate. Answers are also provided. These challenges cover all aspects of maths so that children can constantly be refreshed in all areas.
