Year 4

Coronavirus Plans to Support Work at Home:

We have set up some work plans to support your child during this period at home.  Please do your best to complete what you can and support your child at home in a way that suits you and your child's needs.

The most important things to continue daily are:

* Reading: Hearing your child read and discuss texts read - re-read books from home, read cookery books, instructions to games, magazines, etc if your school books are completed.  If your child finishes their school book, they can write a Book Review.  It is now possible to do a Book Quiz at home if your book has one - refer to the AR link below to show how to do this.

* Times Tables: Learning their times tables by heart and then practising theses on the TTRS website.  Their logins are in their Reading Record Books.

* Spellings: Spelling Shed will have the spellings to be practising in your class set up each week.  You can test your child's spellings in sentences at the end of a week to see what they have remembered.  This is a good time to practise joined neat handwriting presentation while they learn the new spellings also.  Play as many games as possible online using their logins.

 

Happy Easter

Dear Year 4,

Myself, Mrs Sanders, Mrs O'Shea and Mrs Debono, would like to wish you all a very happy, healthy and blessed Easter. I will not be posting anymore work on our class page during the holidays, but remember to keep reading and practising your times tables. Why not enjoy doing some Easter crafts together like; making an Easter bonnet, decorating an egg or making an Easter garden. Feel free to post pictures of these for me on your Gobubble accounts.

 

Rest assured if the school closure continues, we will regularly update your class page with work for you to do weekly,

God Bless,

Mrs Gibbs, Mrs Sanders, Mrs O'Shea and Mrs Debono.

SPANISH

 

Hello Key Stage Two,

I hope that this finds you well.  I’ve been thinking that this is an ideal time to learn more Spanish.  I miss being able to meet you to do this but I hope that you might like some of the activities attached to work on at home.  Mostly, see this time as an opportunity to learn a skill that you always wanted to learn but rarely had time to focus on.  Spanish could be this skill! Year six, this will keep you well prepared for secondary school too.   Keep well, keep happy and take good care.

Hasta pronto!

Mrs Lonergan

Topic: At home in Spain

Vocabulary: My home, my house.

The 'Verb' Song by MC Grammar aka Mr.M

Some grammar help for the week ending 20th September.
Produced by Written and performed by Mr.M (MC Grammar) Have fun learning! Always! Mr.M : )

International Dot Day - Year 4 started by thinking about artists that use dots in different ways. Then we drew from our own imagination based on a dot given to us by a friend. After that we created our own giant dots to add to the whole school display, by using aquarelle pencils and exploring how we can create a different effect by diffusing with water.
