Welcome to Class Four

Welcome back to a ‘short’ 5 week half term. We hope you had a wonderful, well deserved rest over half term and are now ready for the next few weeks of home and school learning.

This week I need you to continue with the usual weekly plans, which have activities and links to online lessons. Our English this week will be covered via the zoom sessions every day at 11am. Maths will be covered via Oak Academy lessons, backed up with Abacus and My Maths activities. This week the focus is on decimals. There will also be small group maths at 9am each day. Make sure you’re up in time for your session!

Remember that for our zoom sessions you will need to be in a quiet space with room to work. You will also need your home learning books, a pen, pencil and ruler and...don't forget your brain! Please go to the toilet and get a drink before we start!

We begin our new Geography topic this half term - 'Why are jungles so wet and deserts so dry?’ Throughout the enquiry, you will be encouraged to reflect upon how climate has such an important influence upon landscapes, plants, animals and human activity on Earth. Our first question is - Why is climate different across the United Kingdom? This is on the weekly plan and resources can be found in the document section.

I hope this sounds manageable and look forward to seeing you during the week.

Don't forget to check out the activities on My Maths, Active Learn and Purple Mash (as well as RM Maths and IDL if you usually do this in school).  And remember, you also have the additional work packs should you wish to complete them. New work packs containing additional resources were available to collect prior to half term. If you have been unable to collect them they will be available on Monday 22nd from school. If you are having difficulties with collection please let us know. 

Reading books have been allocated on the Active Learn website (Bug Club). You should log in and choose a book to read. Some books are quite long and may need to be read over a number of days. Comprehension questions should be answered by clicking on the green bug face that appears throughout the book. Answers will be checked and some feedback given.

Whole school assemblies take place on Monday and Friday and we will continue with our 'Star of the Week' assembly. I will be looking all week for who to give it to. It could be you!

 Keep smiling! 

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to share any work completed at home please email the class

Many thanks for your support. Stay safe and happy!

Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year

for the children of Class 4.
