Home learning update:
 

Hi Year 4,

Mrs Etchells and I hope you are all keeping well and keeping busy. Have you surprised your parents by tidying your bedroom?

Anyway, here are some web sites that might help you over the next few weeks.

READING (and other ideas):

Collins is giving free access to its online learning platform, Collins Connect, for the length of the school closures. The platform is for both primary and secondary schools and is home to learning and teaching resources for a range of subjects including English, maths and science at all levels, as well as international curricula. It includes more than 300 e-books from its Big Cat reading programme, activity sheets, a times tables practice tool, revision and PDF downloads of many of its titles. Collins is adding resources daily to the site.

HISTORY

Watch the youtube video and then write a diary as an Anglo- Saxon warrior and have a go  at making a helmet to go with the shield that you have made before for your homework.

Dear Year 4,
 
Mrs Etchells and I hope you are keeping well and active in these different circumstances. Just to update you on some activities that you can complete during your time at home. 
 
We are currently completing another homework grid for you to complete before you return to school. This will be on the website under the homework tab. We have included both written and active tasks for you to finish in the time you are off school. 
 
Whilst at home it is essential that the children keep reading. We have sent two reading books and a new library home for your enjoyment. Any other reading they can complete will help them (comics, magazines, books). 
 
Also please remember that you have logins to times table rock stars, Mathletics and Espresso so these can be accessed during your time of learning at home. 
 
Thank you for all of your support at this time,
 
Stay safe and see you soon, 
 
Miss Pearson
