A Message from the Year 4 Team

 

Dear all, 

 

Thank you for the incredibly thoughtful cards and presents. We are all truly grateful and appreciative of your kindness and we are blown away by the thoughtfulness. Thank you.

 

More importantly, the support you've given the children over the course of lockdown and the home learning period has been remarkable and the impact you've made in supporting them has been immeasurable. 

 

We wish you all a wonderful, safe summer and we know that Year 4 will continue to be successful next year in Year 5.

 

All the best and thank you again.

 

Year 4 Team.

A Message To Year 4

 

Hello all, firstly thank you all for your patience with regards to the Zoom Meetings this morning and some of the technical issues we were experiencing. It was lovely to see you all and I hope it all brought a smile to all your faces being able to see most of your classmates even if it was on a laptop/computer. Thank you again for your patience. 

 

I just wanted to post an update with regards to MyMaths. When you login to MyMaths there is a Purple Tab called 'SCORES'. Please click on this tab to see feedback from myself and Mrs Drew. If we have asked you to try a task again please do so. 

 

See you in the next vlog!

Work Feedback and Marking

Dear Parents,

 

A reminder please to ensure the 4 pieces of work for each week are sent in throughout the week so we can provide timely feedback. No work is to be sent in after 3pm on a Friday as feedback is only able to be given during school working hours. Please avoid sending in work this week from last week as we would like to be able to give our full attention to this weeks work. Thank you for your understanding and support.

 

Have a good week,

 

The Year 4 Team

A Message For Year 4 

 

Attached above and via email is a learning pack for the first week of learning starting 23.03.20, there will be weekly video updates on the Year 4 class blog every Monday morning. 

 

The weekly video will (hopefully!) offer a weekly form of mild entertainment and be accompanied with an explanation of the learning grid for that week going through each activity. 

 

Learning packs and grids will be uploaded onto the class blog and emailed out every week.

 

If you are not sure about any of the worksheets please do not hesitate to email.  Responses will be made either via email or a video explaining the specific worksheet/task in greater detail. 

 

Please keep an eye on the blog over the coming weeks as this will be a vital form of communication given the circumstances. 

 

Obviously these are strange times for all, we hope that you and your family stay safe and we hope to see you all again soon. 

 

The Year 4 Team.

Announcement: Year 4 Greek Parthenon Building Workshop - November 27th

 

As part of this term's learning in Year 4, we are delighted to confirm with you that we have booked a Greek Parthenon Building Workshop for the afternoon on November 27th. Children will work individually, in teams and altogether to construct a very large model of the famous Temple of Athena in Athens, name the Parthenon, complete with columns, pedaments and capitals.  During the process pupils will learn about the different parts of the building and walking through the structure. There will be problem solving, teamwork and a great celebration when they raise the roof using the 2m high columns. 

 

We're excited for this opportunity for the children and hope you can support them in being able to attend.

 

Thank you for your support as always,

 

The Year 4 Team.

 

Regrouping In Subtraction Work

Starting Our Ancient Greek Myths Topic With Percy Jackson

Some Of Our Favourite Books!

Firstly, thank you to those who came to the curriculum evening this week, it was wonderful to share the exciting learning we have planned this year. 

 

For those who didn't attend, some key points:

  • Every Wednesday Home Learning Books need to be returned, the Homework Grid has been loaded up onto the blog (see below). 
  • Every Wednesday morning a timestable test will take place, use the website www.timestables.co.uk if you wish to support your child in learning these. The website provides a range of activities as well as a test, which can be customised to support your child further, timings and timestables can be edited. 
  • Every Thursday morning a spelling test takes place (see below for spellings).

 

Finally, it's been an exciting first full week in Year 4! We've begun our Ancient Greek topic by investigating how chronology works and also had a fantastic street dancing workshop where everyone was busting a move.

 

We're very excited for a fantastic year ahead, have a lovely weekend.
