IMPORTANT INFORMATION 4.1.2020
We will be creating home-learning opportunities for your child using the online platform: Purple Mash. Your child has been issued with a login and is familiar with the format of Purple Mash.
Most of the tasks which we set on Purple Mash will also be available under the subject headings below, where we will also provide any appropriate links to additional help and support (BBC Bitesize, YouTube clips, Oak National etc).
For those families without access to electronic gadgets (laptops, tablets, Playstation etc) we will provide paper copies of any relevant worksheets for your child to complete whilst they are at home. Please contact us, via your child's class email address, if you need further information.
WELCOME TO TERM 3
We hope you had a peaceful and happy Christmas and we wish you a very happy and healthy 2021.
We are now back at school under very different circumstances than we ended last term. However, we are looking forward to exploring the next part of the Year 4 curriculum this term. We have listed the different topics that we will be covering below.
Please continue to send children to school each Monday and Thursday in outdoor PE kits - preferably layers (vest, T-shirt, sweatshirt/hooded top, long jogging bottoms, warm socks and trainers).
It would also be useful if you could send children to school with a pair of old trainers or wellington boots (in a named carrier bag) so that they can make the most of our outside space when the weather permits.
With best wishes from
Mrs Williams, Mrs Cooper, Mr Hitchiner, Mrs Goodsell and Mrs Jenner

Keeping Your Child Safe Online
Your child may well be using the internet more than normal during this time so it is important that they remain safe. Please take the time to follow the link below to complete the activities from 'thinkuknow' in order to reinforce online safety.
We have discovered this excellent website which replicates the Year 4 'Multiplication test' which is likely to take place in June 2021. The website has a range of games, activities and a mock test for the children to engage with. Thank you for your support.
