Year 4

In light of recent development with the Coronavirus outbreak and school closure, it is important that while the children are not at school during this time, they continue their learning.  

We appreciate that many of you will be working from home with your children in the house, to make this manageable we have collated some useful resources (both online and printable). In addition, an overview of what the children have covered since September can be found in the year group folder on the school website. This information is designed to provide guidance and to support you when the opportunity arises for you to work with your child. Individual log-in information for websites and apps (where required) can be found in your child’s reading diary. 

Your child should record any written work in their Home Learning book. More practical tasks can be recorded using photographs. These will be shared when we return to school.

 

Wider Curriculum and learning opportunities:

Please use this time to develop new and existing skills such as: Crafts, Artwork, Cooking & Baking, Board Games, Outdoor visits (when possible)- The National Trust have stated that they will open their parks & estates for free, while closing houses and buildings.
