Home Learning 27.4.20
Hello to all our Year 4 children, parents and carers!
We are missing everyone and hope you are all well and staying safe. We have updated the home learning for Year 4 ready to start next week.
As we are missing everyone, we thought that it would be a lovely idea to share any completed work or activities that you have done during the week. This could be any set task, daily exercise, baking, cooking, gardening, art and craft projects or books you are reading and would recommend to others. The list is endless! If you could take a picture and attach it to an email to the school office or via the e-schools website, we will share them on our website. We may also add in some pictures of our own!
If you would like to ask us a question or chat about any tasks that have been set, please message us via the e-schools website and we will get back to you as soon as we can. The children also have their own account on this and are welcome to ask questions or simply let us know what they are up to and how they are getting on.
Below, we have outlined the tasks we have set for this week. More detailed information can be found further down this page. It is important to note that in addition to these tasks, we do expect that all children read every day, practice TT Rockstars as often as possible and most importantly, have some fun! We recognise that most of these tasks involve the use of technology. This is because in regards to Purple Mash and TT Rockstars, we can track the work that children have completed. In addition to this, we have tried to set children exciting tasks such as El Dorado and to cover a range of curriculum areas. If this is causing an issue, please get in touch and we will try our best to put alternative provision in place.
Take care everyone. Don’t forget to send us your photos!
Miss Philip and Mr Hodges.
Work specifically for WC 27.4.20
In school, we follow the White Rose Maths Small Steps. See below for this week's maths.
English / Reading
This week we are looking at chapter 2 of The Shifter.
Monday - read the chapter and identify any unfamiliar words. Can you work out what they mean using the sentence? Can you change some of the words for other synonyms?
Tuesday - read again and complete the quiz either online or in your workbooks.
Wednesday - Use the text to answer the open ended questions and sequence task.
Thursday - complete the SPaG task for chapter 2
Friday - writing piece. This can be done online or in their books.
There are also 3 grammar and 2 spelling tasks which can be completed online throughout the week at any point.
For further English work, they can choose a new text on Serial Mash and complete a chapter and the tasks a day or have a go at the El Dorado lessons.
Computing - this week we have set on Purple Mash the task to make a poster to explain to younger children why it is important to have a strong password. Again, this can be online or on paper. I would love to share finished pieces on the website !

There will be a daily lesson released on YouTube at 10:30am each day. However, each session can be accessed online after 10:30 so it can be completed at a time which is suitable for you.
The overview of learning activities and the El Dorado text are attached as a PDF below.
If you would like to share your work with us, take a picture and attach it to an email to the school office or via e-schools and we'll share it on our class pages.
We're looking forward to seeing your characters!
