      Remote Learning in Year 4

 

 

 

Our aim at Greenwood is to provide quality learning for children both at home  and at school. 

Each week, your child's class teachers will be uploading a weekly remote learning timetable (similar to the ones that were uploaded during lockdown) to provide children who are isolating at home with the best possible teaching and learning resources to support their continued learning at home. 

These weekly timetables, powerpoints, videos and resources will also enable you to see what we are doing in class and support your child with any additional learning that you may feel they need. At the very least, you will be aware of our learning in school and what your child is doing on a day to day basis. 

 

Please note:

This is not additional learning for children who are already in school daily, unless you feel that your child would benefit from completing any of these activities.  This is primarily for children who are isolating at home and are not able to come to school.

Homework

We want children to feel more comfortable with doing homework and for them to see it more as an extension of their learning, so…

Spellings

Each Monday your child  will come home with a list of spellings and will be tested on the Friday. Some may come from the Year 4 word bank and the rest will follow a particular pattern. Please help and encourage your child to learn their spellings as this is so important for their reading and writing! Your child will also bring home a copy of their scores after being screened on the Year 2, 3 and 4 spellings, which will show them which ones they need to practice (in whatever time they wish to use) before being screened again during the next half-term.

 

Maths and English

English homework – based on our class book or topic at the time, children will be given a menu where they can choose from one of 4 tasks to complete every 2 weeks, which gives the children the chance to complete a good piece.

Maths homework – children will be given a selection of tasks based on learning that the children have been focusing on at school that week- this will be set on Purple Mash.

Children will earn raffle tickets for bringing homework in and completing it! This will give them a better chance of earning a prize from the raffle prize box!

 

 

Reading

Reading is one of our school’s biggest priorities! We want to see children enjoying reading and getting the rewards they deserve!

The Fab 4 reading records, as you know, need to be filled in 4 times a week and every week of the half-term so the children can earn the treat at the end of the half-term.

We also want to get Year 4 to the top of the reading league and earning up to 15 minutes extra play time!

We want children to read their own books, take books from school (that we’ve allowed the children to choose) and share them with others in the Year group. Nothing like a good book swap!

Please encourage your child to come and see us if they are struggling, we are here to help!
