HOME SCHOOLING SUGGESTIONS
Hi Year 4 children and parents.
These are our suggestion on how you might schedule your day and keep your children in a routine (and avoid cabin fever)…
At home, I have been teaching my 6-year-old and have quickly realised that small chunks of learning, only in the morning, are much more effective.
Therefore, we suggest that a maximum of 30 minutes on each: Maths, Reading and English to be the most beneficial method.
Keep safe and keep learning. The Year 4 team 🙂

Spring Term in Year 4 – 2020
We have been very lucky this term to have had a weekly forest schools session. Although the weather has been very wet and windy the children have loved the experience and muddy conditions.
They have taken part in shelter building, fire lighting, art using the natural resources and first aid skills.
All the children achieved a first aid certificate for all their hard work and endeavor. Well done Year 4.
Throughout the term we have been reading ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. We have enjoyed the story and have been answering questions, writing book reviews and producing art work based on the book. This has resulted in our current wall display in the corridor.
We have also had great fun this week celebrating World Book Day. The children brought in their favourite books to share a story with the class. They did a great job at reading an extract to the rest of the class from their books. We ending the week, dressing up as a word of our choice or our favourite book characters.
Autumn Term 2019
We have had a very busy couple of weeks. It has been great to have parents come into school to work alongside the children during our ‘anti-bullying/Kindness’ week. It was also lovely to see so many parents attend our St Lucia cooking event and taste the delicious food that the children had made throughout the day. Here are just a few of the photos from both events.
St Lucia Cooking:
This week we had our final tag rugby session before half term Thankfully, the weather was good enough for us to actually get onto the field. The children played many matches and displayed the skills they have learnt excellently.
We have also been learning a persuasive text using our talk for writing strategies. The children have enjoyed exaggerating their voices and acting out each of the sentences.
Throughout the week we have been busy preparing the ground and planting tulip bulbs ready for us to study in Science during the spring term.
We have also been very lucky to have Julian Lawes help to coach our Tag Rugby sessions throughout this half term. We have loved playing the games he has taught us and our passing and catching of the rugby ball has got much better.
In science this week it has all been about rockets. We had to work out the best combination of air and water to propel the rockets into the air. It was great fun and we learnt a lot.
This week we have had the opportunity to create our own fair tests in science using cars, ramps and a range of different materials.
Everybody in Year 4 would like to wish you a very happy summer break.
We have been so impressed and pleased with the progress the children have made this year and we wish the children every success as they move into Year 5.
These websites are excellent resources if you are looking for things to do over the summer.
Mrs Mitchell, Mr Greet & Mr Carter.
