Welcome back! We hope that you have had a lovely and safe Christmas break.

As you know, we are now providing online learning until 8th March at the earliest. This comprises of 3 live lessons a day - 

9:30 - 10:00 - Guided Reading/ Theme

11:00 - 11:30 - English

13:00 - 13:30 - Maths 

These live lessons will be followed by an assignment for each subject that needs to be completed that day. For more detailed information, please see the China Class Teams page that can be accessed through your child's airhead account.

Our new topic this term is 'Burps, Bottoms and Bile'. During this topic, we will be learning about the human body including the digestive system, healthy eating, the structure of our teeth and how to look after them. In English, we will be writing a narrative using 'The Lost Thing' video as a stimulus (this can be found on Youtube). In maths, we will be working on multiplication and division including using formal column methods. Alongside their maths lessons, we encourage the children to practise their times tables as much as possible through Doodle Tables and Times Tables Rockstars (both can be accessed through your child's airhead account). In our theme lessons this half term, we will be looking at food packaging and food groups, as well as learning about our different types of teeth and how to look after them. Please see this term's knowledge organiser that is attached below for more detailed information on the topic coverage.

There are many other links on your child's Year 4 Home Learning Launchpad (on their airhead account) that can be accessed from home such as 'Hour of Code' for computing and 'Purple Mash' for music, maths, computing and art lessons.

Our whole school rules are:

1. Be ready

2. Be respectful

3. Be safe
