Good evening and Happy New Year!

It’s quite a shock to be writing a home learning blog after being back in school for just one day! We all really enjoyed seeing the children and hearing about their holiday fun. The children had a fantastic first day back and I’m sure they will impress us with their mature attitude towards online learning, just as they did last year.

Hopefully parents/carers collected home learning packs for their child today. If you did not collect them today, your pack may not be delivered until later on Wednesday. There will be a lot of information to get your head round tonight when you get your pack. Remember, this is for a couple of weeks, not just the next few days. There will be a letter in your pack detailing what is included. You will find that expectations are a bit more prescriptive this time. Engagement was good during the last lockdown, but we want it to be even better this time round. Children will be expected to be seen online at Meets a few times every day.

Work set 6th January

Wednesday 6th January- Maths: 11 and 12 times table. Complete in your White Rose Maths booklets. Video and a spare copy of the worksheet are on the Year 4 Maths Google Classroom.

English: 4C: Write sentences using a range of conjunctions- to be completed in your new home learning book. See Year 4 English Google Classroom.
4K: Inferring a characters feelings- to be completed in your new home learning book. See Year 4 English Google Classroom.

Busy last week

Good evening parents/carers,

It’s the end of a very busy and tiring term. We’d like to say a huge well done to all of the children. They’ve continued to work exceptionally hard this week and have impressed us all.

Pushed or fell? This week we had to decide whether Humpty Dumpty was pushed off a wall or fell! We looked at bias and two newspaper reports which used techniques to persuade us to believe their version of events. We then had a debate and the children came up with some fantastic ideas. I think the jury is still out… We then looked further at newspaper features and wrote our own newspaper reports based on traditional nursery rhymes.

The children enjoyed their “fun swim” this week at Bramley Baths and it’s been fantastic seeing the children back in the pool.

In Science, we concluded our topic on sound and the children used data loggers to measure the levels of sound. Can they tell you what sound is measured in? 4C had a competition to see what the loudest noise they could record was. I think some of the children in the infants building might just have heard us…

In French, we used fortune tellers to construct sentences. Each section had a sentence starter, item and colour. We put these together to write our own wish list to Santa. We of course had some French festive tunes in the background too.

The children have been continuing to work on multiplication this week in Maths. Please can children continue to go on TT rockstars and Hit the Button. We would particularly like them to focus on their 6 times table.

We would also like the children to access Mathletics and Spelling Shed throughout the break to further practise these skills.

Have a lovely holiday and stay safe,

The Year 4 team.

Awesome instruments in Year 4

Another super busy week in Year 4!

Thursday was the highlight of the week when we spent all day making musical instruments. The children worked really hard and safely, using saws, pipe cutters, hand drills and hammers. We managed to finish the day with a lot of well-made instruments and all our fingers!

Homework

This week we have moved on to our 6 times tables in Maths. The children have been excellent at going on TT Rockstars, now that they have Chromebooks, and this has had a real impact on their speed on the 8 times tables. Our average speed on the 8x tables has improved from 8.6 seconds per answer to 5.6 seconds. There are still some children who need to keep practicing their 8x tables. If you look in your child’s Stats on TT Rockstars, they need to be answering questions in 5 seconds in order to pass the Year 4 times tables test in May. Please check your child can do that on the 8s.

For English homework, I have set some words from the Year 3/4 spelling list to learn for learning log homework. Please keep learning the words on this list over the holidays. Well done to the winner of our Spellathon Eden and the runners up Jas and Arjun.

Next week we will have PE and swimming on Wednesday.

We will be having a Christmas party on Thursday. A letter will be sent out soon. We will not be asking for children to bring anything or any extra food.

Have a great weekend,

The Year 4 team
