Year 4 2019 - 2020

Miss Kerrison

Dear parents and carers,

As you will be aware, school is temporarily closed. During our school closure we are dedicated to continuing to provide a quality education for your children.

Each day, we will be setting tasks which can be accessed from 9am with your given log in details via our school website. For Maths and English we will be using the oak national academy website. Tasks for other subjects can be selected and downloaded using the link on the right hand side of the page. Your child should type their replies/answers into the box provided and submit their work daily so it can be checked. 

In addition to this, we expect your child to complete 10 minutes of TimesTable Rockstars and 20 minutes of Lexia every day. Please ensure your child takes regular breaks between the activities they complete. 

Science

For science this term we will be looking at living things and their habitats. The children will learn to;

Recognise that living things can be grouped in a variety of ways.

Explore and use classification keys to help group, identify and name a variety of living things in their local and wider environment

Recognise that environments can change and that this can sometimes pose dangers to living things.

History

In history the children will be looking at world war 2 and how it affected our city. The children will learn;

What world war 2 was

What life was like in Manchester during WW2

Wbout life for children and what evacuation was

Art

Normally this term we would be looking at Painting Manchester in a Bombing Raid. However due to home-learning we will be focussing on recapping our sketching skills from this year. The children’s artwork and skills will be guided to sketching and we will briefly cover painting theory.

Your child has their own log in for this which you will have recieved in an email. You’ll then be able to see your child’s ‘assignment’ that has been set. Your child will receive instructions about what they need to do each week on their school spider assignement.

 

We encourage parents and carers to try and adopt similar routines as if your child was in school. For example, allowing children breaks and playtime in between completing given activities.

Many thanks and take care, 

Miss Kerrison and Mr Dean
