Home Learning for Year 4

Good morning everyone!  We hope your weekend was fabulous, and that you were able to enjoy the sunshine...

 

As we all know, we have to "self-isolate" away from school this week.  This means that you won't be able to come to school this week, and we hope you and all the people you live with will remember to keep safe and follow all the advice we have been given.

 

This week, we will be looking at different ways to support your learning while you are at home.  We would like everyone to...

  • Read at home every day...read a reading book if you've got one at home with you...read books you have at home...read any comics or newspapers you might have at home...just make sure you try to read, even if it is just for 10 minutes every day!
  • Practise your times tables...5 minutes every day will help you recall your times tables facts in 5 seconds!
  • Choose work from your Year 4 Homework menu, and complete this in your homework book.
  • Work on the three daily tasks that you are given on this school website.
