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 through Purple Mash 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. 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. I will mark the Purple Mash activities handed in and reply to children's comments. This will be a great way to keep in touch.
Please message if you need anything, keep safe and I look forward to seeing you all soon!

I have signed up for Year 4 to join a brand new site Classroom Secrets Kids - which is full of fantastic games and activities the children can access independently. To receive your child's login information, please contact the school office or email Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you! Keep up the good work Year 4!
Some of the Year 4 children use ReadWise on the iPad with Miss Shield's support to help improve their spellings. Children can now access ReadWise at home. Please read the letter below for information on how to access ReadWise. If you are unsure if your child is part of the ReadWise programme, or your child does not know their username and password, then please contact the School Office for this information.
I've uploaded below documents that are included in your child's home learning pack. The documents below include answers. Please make sure you pick up your child's home learning pack from the school office. The home learning pack includes all your child's login information.
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!
