Welcome to Year 4

My name is Mrs Anderton and I teach Year 4. I am also the English Lead for the school.

Our Cornerstones topics for Summer Term is ‘Blue Abyss’, this topic is Science and Geography based and we are looking forward to learning about the ocean, creatures, The Great Barrier Reef and problems affecting oceans, which will be followed through in our English lessons.

KEY INFORMATION RELATING TO SCHOOL CLOSURE

Dear Parents,

I hope you and your family have had a good rest over the holidays and are raring to go!.

You will find the work for week beginning the 1st June below.

This half term, your child will be learning all about Plastic Pollution in English/Blue Abyss Topic, World Ocean Day, our SDG13 Climate Change and Adaptations and the effect of Environmental Changes on animals in Science.

I know a lot of the children (and you!) have been thoroughly enjoying our Blue Abyss work and so I have planned some exciting learning for this half term, which will cover many of our curriculum subjects. I hope you enjoy the work as much as I have with planning it!

Hope you all keep well.

Missing you all

Mrs Anderton

We hope you all enjoy watching this new video……

WEBSITES LINKED TO THE WEEKLY WORK

MATHS

MyMaths

Capture

The school has subscribed to MyMaths, an interactive Maths website for teaching, learning, revising and enjoying mathematics. Usernames and passwords have been given to pupils in years 1 – 6 and sent home to parents in a letter.

  • How do I find the homework my child has been set? When you go to the MyMaths homepage you will need to log in using your child’s new school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your child’s username and password. In here you should see your child’s homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.

Any further questions or queries please speak to your child’s class teacher
