Mrs Butterworth or Mrs Leeson will be in touch daily via Class Dojo to ‘Check in’ and there will be an ‘overview of the days learning and a fun activity’ to start each day (9:30am on Zoom) in order to set the scene and to bring the children together before they move into independent learning tasks.
Key Daily Activities
Keeping Active: Above all else, it is important that some sort of physical activity is incorporated into each day. We have not set a strict ‘timetable’ so that your child is able to take short bursts of exercise when needed; whether this is a run around in the garden, playing football or joining in with an online dance video.
Reading: We expect that your child dedicates a small part of each day to quiet reading and your child’s teacher will check that this is taking place. We will also run a guided reading group during the week via Zoom and will email the resources out so that the children can read along.
Maths: The White Rose home learning is extremely good and follows the same style of learning that we use in school. A link to the day’s lesson will be posted onto Class Dojo and we will also post this on the Year 4 class page on the website – the link will be sent via Class Dojo. If your child finds it tricky, do let us know via Class Dojo and we can talk it through.
English/Literacy: We will be carrying on with our A Christmas Carol learning that we have started in school. This will be discussed each morning via the zoom meeting. Any links you will require will be uploaded onto the website and on Class Dojo. Please upload your work back so that Mrs Butterworth and Mrs Leeson can comment on it. Ten minutes of Spelling Shed is also recommended.
Your child’s home learning grid has been sent home today. You can obviously complete as many as you like, but please upload a completed task on Wednesday for this week’s home learning.
Century will keep your child’s maths, grammar and science going. There will be assignments set on Century to support key learning from time to time but your ‘learning path’ is all there to use.
