Stay safe everyone,

Mr Fitzgerald

Please feel free to send me any pictures of work children have completed or any activities they may have done as a part of their home learning that we can share on the class page for other children in the class to see what everybody has been up to.

Some of our hard work so far!

 

Maths.

White rose hub have created at home learning videos, work and mark schemes that can be accessed via their website. 

https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

There are daily lessons on here for Year 4.

We follow this scheme within school so children should be familiar with the vocabulary and layout used. 

White rose hub also have daily problems and challenges which is a good way for children to develop their problem solving and reasoning skills. https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/classroom-resources/problems/

I recommend that  Year 4 children should also practise their times tables daily as well as arithmetic skills. There will be a list of useful websites for these activities below.  

Any questions or queries please email me.

English.

For the English home learning, I will be giving the children daily work on either a writing task, Spelling Punctuation and Grammar or a reading comprehension activity and spellings to learn throughout the week. Please see below word document with this week's spellings for Year 4.

I recommend that alongside the English work that will be set for the children, they should practise their spellings each day and read as often as possible.  Here is a suggested reading list for Year 4 children. click here 

Please find below handwriting practise sheets, weekly spellings and daily English activities for the children.

Topic.

 Our topic this term has been the Romans. This week I would like the children to research one of the Roman emperors.

The information they find could be presented as a poster, leaflet or fact file, and could include information such as name, where/when they were born/died, what were they famous for, interesting facts, etc.
