Class 4

Welcome to the Class 4 School Closure page 

For this final week, we have a change to our normal home learning. You will not find the usual booklets on the class webpage.

 

Instead we have put together a summer holiday home learning booklet for you and a reflection booklet ready for moving to your new class.

The summer home learning booklet contains a range of activities to help keep you occupied over the next six weeks. You will find a variety of tasks linked to spellings, handwriting, reading, writing, maths and times tables. The reflection booklet is a great way for you to think about what you have achieved this year and goals to set yourself for next year.

 

Of course, there are no expectations for you to complete all of these tasks or try to follow a normal school routine during the summer holiday. If you have some spare time and are not sure what to do, we are here to help you with some suggestions. It is an extra resource for you to have at hand if needed. It will though be a great way to keep your skills up ready for a new start in September!

Hello and welcome to Class 4's school closure page.  As schools are still not fully open, we will be keeping you updated on this page with learning activities and ideas.

 

Here is the joint booklet for Year 3 and Year 4 for this week. You can download it below or you can collect a printed copy from the school foyer.

You also have a separate booklet that includes your new spelling words and Time Table Rockstar challenges for the week. Again, you can download it below or you can collect a printed copy from the school foyer.

We will still be using our Class Dojo page as a way of communicating and sharing things so do please keep posting on there with all the wonderful things you have been up to.

 

If you prefer to try some online lessons, then check out BBC Bitesize for a range of daily activities. The online lessons appear daily so check out the schedule below to see what is going to appearing soon.

As well as BBC Bitesize, you might also want to check out the daily lessons available on the Oak National Academy website. Oak National Academy is a new collection of high-quality lessons and online resources. Backed by the Government, it has been created in response to the coronavirus lockdown.

New lessons and resources are provided each week. You can either follow the daily suggestion or pick and choose lessons that are of interest to you.

Oak National Academy will fit perfectly alongside other resources such as BBC Bitesize and our own school closure booklets. Together, these can offer a structure to the day for children until schools fully reopen.
We absolutely do not expect you to be replicating school at home. The activities that we are posting are ideas for you to try and are a way of ensuring you are keeping up the skills we have learned in school. Try and do as much as you can and make it work for your family.

Here are all the Summer 2 WEEK 1 activities in one printable booklet

Welcome back to Summer 2, Week 1, Class4-tastic!


We hope that you are all well and that you have had a restful and fun half term.


This week we are delving into the filthy World of Mr and Mrs Twit as we read the start of ‘The Twits’ by Roald Dahl in English.


In Maths we will be revising multiplication. We found learning the formal strategy tricky in class so really concentrate hard, use the videos and be resilient rabbits!


There are some interesting and fun activities to do for topic this week. Try some Spanish addition, doodle like Twits illustrator Quentin Blake and grow a beard like Mr Twit!


Have a super week,
Stay safe and smiley.
Mrs Andrews & Ms Bandey

You will notice that, just like last week, we have planned 5 each of Maths, English, Spelling and Topic activities. You could choose to do one of each, each school day, or to focus on one area of learning per day – you and your families will be able to work out the best approach for you. 

 

Whilst we are not expecting you to replicate school at home, it will be important that we all try to do some work each school day to keep our skills up.

 

Some of you have asked for a structure or timetable so, as your teachers, we suggest the following timings, which should help you organise your day:

 

Times tables practice - use TTRS online, or the sheets on this website / in your booklet at least 15 minutes
Spellings practice - see website section below / your booklet at least 15 minutes
Reading - this could be a story book or a non-fiction book, or a newspaper / magazine like The Week Junior.   at least 30 minutes
Focussed English activity - see website section below / your booklet at least 30 minutes
Focussed Maths activity - see website section below / your booklet at least 30 minutes

 

There are also some TOPIC ideas in this booklet that you could try out as independent work. These topic activities could even be done with a brother or sister (we’re sure Ron Reciprocity would help out too). Or, you may have an area of interest/ project you would like to investigate and organise yourself.

We'd love to see what you get up to so please upload things to your Dojo portfolio if you are able to. If you need any help, just send us a message!
