During your child’s time away from school, please take the opportunity to continue to help develop their learning.
The children will be set tasks online through Purple Mash, Spelling Shed and Mathletics by me. These tasks are linked to what the children would currently be learning in Year 4. It is important for children to complete these activities. The children also have access to Timestable Rockstars.
When children hand their work in through Purple Mash, they can send me a message to let me know how they are finding the tasks. It would be lovely for the children to keep in touch with me and let me know how they are getting on with their learning and tasks at home! Children can also use this if they have any questions they would like to ask about their work. The children in Year 4 also know how to use 2email to ask for any help with tasks they are struggling with.
I will mark the Purple Mash activities handed in every day and reply to children's comments. This will be a great way to keep in touch.
Please message the school office if you need anything, keep safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon! If you do not have access to ICT devices, please inform the school office so work can be provided. Also, contact the school office if you need your child's logins to any of the websites mentioned above.

Year 4 have recently been given access to a fantastic new online resource - Rising Stars Reading. Here the children can read a wide range of different genres from the comfort of their home, then complete quizzes and activities to improve their reading and comprehension skills. Each child has been given their own login to access this website. Parents have also been sent this login by email. If you have any issues accessing this site please contact the school office.
Below I've uploaded extra worksheets if your child completes the home pack given, along with answers to the worksheets. I've also added some practical ideas, for practical Maths activities that can be completed at home.
Take a few minute to take part in this mindfulness video. Year 4 have completed mindfulness videos like this before in class and we find it really helps us relax when we're feeling anxious or stressed. Enjoy!
