Year 4 Home Learning
Welcome to Year 4's Learning Page
Date: W/C Monday 18th January
Welcome to week 3 of lockdown teaching! I hope that you all had a good weekend and that you are all keeping safe! Below, you’ll find information about the subjects being taught in class this week. I will be doing group zoom calls on Monday morning and then a big group zoom on Friday at 2.30 pm. Either myself or another adult in class will be ringing parents on Wednesday to check in on everyone!

If you need any help or if you want to send in your completed work including photos, please send these to your class email which will be checked daily:

Please see the link below ‘Lockdown week 3_inspirational_people’. It has daily plans for the following week. You don't have to follow everything on it but it will hopefully give you some good ideas for each day.

Please continue to support your child with their reading. You can teach them how to read unfamiliar words by sounding out; reading on and going back to it and, importantly, discussing the context of the story. If your child is a confident reader then please still discuss the book with them. You can talk about key events, characters’ feelings as well as authors’ choice of language and the impact on the reader.
There is another comprehension resource in your paper copy of home learning. If you are coming to school at any stage, please remember to bring your home learning book and home learning pack on a daily basis so I can check your books and listen to you all read.
Over the week, we are focusing on multiplication and division. Please see the home learning resources on the following website:
