Welcome to W/C 29th June laugh

Missing you all! I hope that you are all still

*happy and healthy and had a lovely half term! REMEMBER to be completing 1 page a day of your project book and do the maths and english activities in your learning book. I am available to contact on Class Dojo if you need any help.


There are 2do's on Purple Mash so please make sure you are logging on to check what has been put on there.

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 the education of your child. Stay safe and take care of each other.

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)

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.

Maths

In the next couple of weeks we will be looking at measure/area/perimeter. Below is step by step slides with activities on each to complete through the week.

As an additional resource you can access daily maths challenges here:
https://corbettmathsprimary.com/5-a-day/
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.

Times Tables

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.

English

For English this week:

-complete the acitivities in the descriptive writing booklet.
