In anticipation children and families having to self isolate due to the Coronavirus outbreak we have setup Google drives to share work for our year 4 pupils to access from home so that they have the opportunity to continue their education in line with the curriculum long-term overview.
The children should be able to access this work and information independently by following the google drive links below and can present their work in the new learning log that they have been provided with, we encourage them to be as creative as possible.
In addition to this work the children can continue to use the e-learning platforms that the school have bought into such as Spelling Shed, My Maths, and Timestables Rock Stars.
We will weekly update the contents in the folders and MyMaths platform.
Each week children will have a range of home learning tasks to complete as follows:
Spellings lists will be given to the children on a Monday and will be tested on a Friday. Children will have opportunities to practice these spelling rules in class throughout the week. Working on them at home helps to consolidate this learning.
In addition to this, children will be given a log in for accelerated reader. This software helps children to demonstrate their understanding of what they have read through completion of small comprehension quizzes based on the books they are reading. Children should aim to complete at least 1 quiz per week, however this may not always be possible with larger books.
Children will also receive a reading record that they are to use to log the title, date and page numbers they have read that week and these will be checked on a THURSDAY also. Due to the current climate we are having one day per week that reading books can get changed and this will also be on a Thursday. Please make sure books that borrowed from school are returned on this day once your child has finished reading them so that they can be quarantined then used by others within the class.
