NEW LEARNING PLATFORM

 

Hi all,

 

We are now posting work for home learning on our new Remote Learning Platform - Google Classrooms. Homework is also posted to this site.  A letter has been sent home with login-in details for your child, however if you need these again please contact the school office. 

 

Kind Regards

The Year 4 team

Dear Year 4,

 

Welcome back! For those of you who are currently unable to join us in school right now (whatever the reason), Mr. Stanley and Mr. King will keep this page updated with work to last through the week from the White Rose Hub and Oak Academy websites.

 

If you have any questions about the work (or anything else!), remember that you can contact the Year 4 staff at their email address y4@st-marysfields.leicester.sch.uk, and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

 

Hope to see you back in the classroom soon!

 

Mr. Stanley and Mr. King

Home learning for week beginning 06/07/20

 

Dear parents and carers,

 

As this time away from school continues, the Year 4 team will provide updates to suggested work to supplement the packs your children took home with them. This is not something we expect you to stick to rigidly! It is simply a guide with ideas of activities for the children to be completing during this time. 

 

Some of these activities will not change as frequently as others (for example P.E. or spelling), but please do come back each week to see what new ideas we have added. Additionally, we will continue to add to the list of activities and challenges at the bottom of the page, and would love to see any pictures or videos you want to share on the site like the ones you can see at the bottom of the page. To share these moments, or ask us any questions that might spring to mind, please don't hesitate to send an email our way at Y4@st-marysfields.leicester.sch.uk with your child's name and class in the subject of the email, and we shall get back to you as soon as we can.

 

In addition to this, you can look to these websites for some fantastic resources and learning during this time to keep you going:

BBC Bitesize daily lessons

Oak National Academy daily lessons

White Rose Maths daily lessons

Myon online library

BBC Bitesize subjects area 

Jigsaw Families PSHE

Activity Zone

Tate Kids

 

Best wishes from both of us,

Mr. Stanley and Miss Mee

  • Read a chapter from one of your books. If your book does not have chapters, read until you think it is a good place to stop. Remember to read with expression, and pay attention to the punctuation in the sentence. You might want to focus on a particular reading strategy when you read each day (think about things like visualising  wondering and predicting).
