Thursday 26.3.2020 - Home learning!!

Activity 1

Maths

Today we are moving on to fractions greater than 1. I have added a power point to 'useful downloads' which should help explain this to the children. I have also added a help sheet and then also the task. Have a go at the tasks and please dojo me if you need any help. I have used the traffic light system again so start with the green question and see how you get on. 

 

Activity 2

Spelling

I have created an activity that explores the prefixes anti and inter. You can find the activity in 'useful downloads'. 

Remember you have your spelling mats that you can use to learn some words. Think about the different ways you can practice these spellings so you remember them.

 

Activity 3

Science

At school we have been learning about living things and their habitats. Can you tell a grown up at home about what you have learnt so far and some of the ways we have separated animals?

Find the activity in 'useful downloads'. You have been given a hedgerow habitat to explore and a few questions to answer about what you can see and why those animals may be found there.

Dear Parents and Carers,

This page will be used to support home learning for Year 4 children if schools are instructed to close. 

If you and your family are self-isolating hopefully you will already have your child's home learning pack. If not please contact us and we will endeavour to get this to you.

Your child can make a start on some of the challenges within the pack but if you would like an update on what we have been learning within school that day please message me via class dojo where I can send photographs and videos to support home learning.

In the event of school closing to all this page will be updated daily.

Thank you for your continued support during this tricky time.

The home learning tasks can be found in the documents section on the right.
