Remote Learning

 

If you are at home for longer period of time, waiting for a test result or staying safe in quarantine, you will find your weekly learning here. You will need to complete a maths activity each day.

 

In school, we follow the White Rose scheme of Learning and these workbooks can be followed as they match what we are doing in class. The questions are just like what we do everyday. 

If you find these are too hard for your child. have a look at one of the previous year group workbooks and try that instead. 

 

https://whiterosemaths.com/parent-workbooks/#year4

 

Your teacher will add extra MyMaths activities to match the work being completed in class. Do this each day to make sure you keep up with the work being completed in school.

 

Reading

Weekly Homework

 

You can read to yourself, read to a family member or listen to someone else read, but try to read every day.

 

A full digital reading library is available on Oxford Owls and you can access as many books as you like.  In October our digital subsription begins and your teacher will help you choose books at an appropriate level!

If you prefer traditional books you will be given a book each Monday, please return it on a Friday.

Our Topic and other learning

TOPIC HOMEWORK

Get Creative with Let’s Celebrate!

Next half term we are studying Let’s Celebrate.  This is a topic based on the different festivals that are happening between now and Christmas.  To learn more about Let’s Celebrate, why not try the following...

 

  • Can you take photos of any places of worship you see? Maybe they are local to you, maybe they are in town or maybe you are just passing by. Can you write the name of the religious building and where you have seen it?

 

  • Can you research a festival/celebration and create a PowerPoint or a factfile of information. You could include; the name of the festival, when it is celebrated, who celebrates, why it is celebrated, what do people do to celebrate, special food people eat and anything else you can think of.

 

  • Can you create a model of a religious building? What building could you make and what materials could you use?

 

  • ...or anything else that you can think of...
