Spring Term 2  2021

Hello Year 4

After half-term, we will be introducing SEESAW which will support the sharing of learning and to give and receive feedback. Here are two videos to support understanding of  how it will be used within school and how pupils are able to access it at home.

Obviously, due to the latest lockdown situation things are a little different at the moment. For those zooming from home the timetable below should prove helpful in terms of organising children for that day’s zoom lessons. Please refer to the following timetable:

 Zoom Timetable 

For each session, you will need to log back in using the link provided in your email and wait in the waiting room, until I begin the meeting. I suggest logging in 5 minutes before we are due to start each session as we need to be prompt and stick to timings. If you are late, I may not see that you are in the waiting room as I will be focused on teaching. (I will try though).

We will be taking an informal register of who is participating in each zoom session.

We have  kept the order of lessons the same to provide some normality and consistency. We will follow this timetable every day.

Work from Home

A table will be placed outside on the year 3/4 playground as we did on Tuesday 5th January. There will be two labelled boxes on the table, one for returning completed work and another with the next 2 weeks work pack in.

PLEASE DO NOT RETURN THE ORANGE JOTTERS, THESE MUST STAY AT HOME FOR THE WHOLE 6 WEEKS. Also please keep any MATHS, WRITING and reading resources that we have not yet used. THANK YOU

If you have any worries or questions, please email me at: year4@cpa.dsat.education and I will do my best to respond as soon as I can.

Below are examples of some of the learning we will be doing this half term.

The Anglo-Saxons (Curriculum Theme)

In this half-term we will be investigating the Anglo-Saxons including : origins, famous leaders, family life, clothes weapons, food and houses.  Our theme will include geographical (place names) and historical skills and knowledge.

1 Anglo Saxon warriors | Saxon history, Anglo saxon history, Anglo saxon           Anglo-Saxon military organization - Wikipedia

English

This half term we will be focussing on descriptive and persuasive texts, letters and diary entries. The children will be using Home Sweet Home and The Windmill farmer- two short films to help stimulate their writing skills. We need to keep up the hard work with our spellings and ensure reading at home continues. Everyone should now be accessing Bug Club and be reading every day.

Reading – a daily activity

Reading is a fun activity!  Please continue to read each day and don’t forget to ask your adult to record what you read in your home reading record. We will continue to award golden tickets to those children who have read 20 times each month.

Maths

Multiplication and Division

This half-term we will focus on multiplication and division strategies as well as angles co-ordinates and fractions.

Throughout this month we will be revisiting themes missed from last year and as soon as we can continuing with catch-up club after school.

Don’t forget to keep on practising times tables skills by playing TT Rockstars regularly.

Science

This half term our science unit looks at how we humans impact on the environment in both negative and positive ways. Skills will include carrying out their own litter survey and interpreting information on bar graphs.

PE

We will try to keep the children as active as possible outside while the weather allows with a new unit in which the children learn basic hockey skills. Can you ensure that you send your child in their PE kit on Mondays? When the weather gets colder please ensure children have warm clothing as we cannot do PE inside until further notice.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Dickman and Mrs Stewardson.
