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,

 

Well at last the year is over and we can all enjoy our summer holidays!

Below you will find the last chapters of The Boy at the Back of the Class book for the children to read over the summer and I have uploaded some Maths Revision of Year 4 activities, parent booklet and a selection of Times Tables activities.

Hopefully the children will find maybe 10 – 15 mins each day to keep on top of their reading, maths and times tables, ready for Year 5 in September.

Wishing you all a fantastic summer!

Take care

Mrs Anderton

We hope you all enjoy watching this new video……

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

Times Tables Rock Stars

Multiplication Games

5 a Day – 5 a day maths questions, plus videos and worksheets on many areas of maths – suitable for Years 3 – 6.

IXL Learning – Please try to use this at least once per week to recap work we have already done.

The website gives children questions based on mathematics that we have already learnt about in class and will hopefully encourage them to revisit concepts from earlier in the year.

White Rose Home Learning Year 4 – this is the planning that we use and adapt in class, the children will recognise the activities, have a look through areas that we have already covered.
