Year 4 2019 - 2020
Weclome to Year 4 in 2019-20.
We will use this page to share important information and keep families updated on events in year 4.
If parents or children would like to email in to their teachers any activities or new skills they have learnt during this time, you can now send any pictures or messages to email@example.com and we can share your activities on your year group page.
Supporting Families With Covid 19 (Coronavirus)
We recognise that many families will need support with self isolation and home schooling. Using this page and the tabs below, we have set up home learning links and advice. Your child's class teacher will also be in touch via your child's class tab. We are aiming to to provide your child with lots of learning links and ideas.
In the 'online links' tab, we have set up links to websites and online learning portals that we use in school. Your child has been sent home with their online logins and passwords for the websites we use in Year 4. We have also set up links to other pages that will help your child learn at home. You will also find downloadable home learning packs at the bottom of the 'online links' page.
They will also be able to read daily and practise their mathematics using their Year 4 home learning mathematics book.
We have also added a poster with 25 ideas to have fun at home without screen time.
We also want to ensure that families and children are looking after their well-being. Link below takes you to our advice and links page for mental health and well-being:

Here are some useful sites to boost learning at home.
Remember to exercise every day
Joe Wicks is putting together some daily videos to keep you active while you are off school. It is important to try and exercise everyday as this is good for your body and your mind.
Daily English lessons with Jane Considine.
Jane Considine is putting together some super stacking English lessons for children of all ages to access from home. All you will need is a pen and paper and log onto her live webinar each day from Monday morning at 9:45am for the Film focus of the day and at 10:30am she will give you your writing task.
Free online books for all children to listen to.
Starting today, children everywhere can instantly stream an incredible collection of stories, including titles across six different languages, that will help them continue dreaming, learning, and just being children. All stories are free to stream on your desktop, laptop, phone or tablet.
Every week we will upload the lastest addition on First News. This is a children's newspaper that we subscribe to in school. You can download it by clicking the link above. The great thing about this newspaper is that every week we will also attach some reading activities and puzzles. The PDF files are attached below. Please note that level 1 is the easier activity (aimed at lower KS2) with level 2 being more challenging (aimed at upper KS2) . Complete the actvities each week as part of your English lesson at home. If you can't print the sheets off you can record the answers to the questions in your exercise books.
This week there is some information on the Coronavirus. It may be useful for children and parents to read these together and gain a better understadning of what has been happening around the world. This is a good opportunity for discussions, questions and also reassurance.

Visit from our Learning Hero
On 11th September, our learning hero Pete Dunning came in to give a talk to Year 4 and answer the children's questions about his fascinating life. We were all inspired by his positivity and resilience and will use his example to develop these traits in ourselves this term!
Roald Dahl Day
On 13th September it will be Roald Dahl Day. So in school we have celebrated with a visit by Willy Wonka himself (aka Tony Higginson)
On the 12th September, the children were immersed in fun and exciting activites all day celebrating the life of Roald Dahl and all his amazing children's books. In each classroom, Tony Higginson gave a masterclass on character creation and development.
