IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE ISOLATING:
We will be creating some 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. For those families without electronic gadgets (laptops, tablets etc) we will provide paper copies of any relevant worksheets for your child to complete whilst they are at home. Please contact us, via the class email address, if you need further information.
WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL
A big welcome back to you all. We know you are probably feeling a little bit nervous and excited - we are too. The next term will be a little different to how you remember things being organised at school. For example we won't be having assemblies with the whole school to start with and each class will have their own section of the field or the playground to use at break times. But don't worry because we've spent lots of time organising the classroom and outside spaces to keep you all as safe as possible.
We've got an exciting term planned and we are really looking forward to the next step in your school journey.
With best wishes from
Mrs Williams, Mrs Cooper, Mr Hitchiner, Mrs Goodsell and Mrs Jenner
In Bee Class the teachers are Mrs Williams and Mrs Cooper, who will be supported by Mrs Jenner.
In Monkey Class the teacher is Mr Hitchiner, who will be supported by Mrs Goodsell.
We are looking forward to introducing many new learning opportunities.
Some areas that we will be covering are:
English - We will be studying two books which are: 'The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse' and 'Tilly and the Time Machine'.
Each Monday children will be given a list of 10 spellings to learn at home. They will bring the sheet home and should file it in the purple folder that they have been given. There will be a spelling test on the following Monday.
Maths - Place value and all four operations (subtraction, addition, multiplication and division) and shape. We will also be focusing on times table facts to build fluency and speed.
Geography - Continents; longitude and latitude.
R.E. - Hinduism
Games - Football
Science/DT - Electricity and Alarms
Computing - Communication and research skills
Music - Musical appreciation and learning the ukuele
PSHE - New beginnings
French - La trousse (learning the phrases to describe what's in your pencil case)
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.
