Dear Parents and Children
Welcome back to the start of a very strange summer term! It feels very bizarre planning activities for you all but not being able to teach you in the classroom.
We hope that you had a good Easter break, even in lockdown and that you have been enjoying this beautiful weather!
We would like to say a big thank you to both children and parents for all your hard work on your home learning so far as we appreciate it is not easy. Many of you have accessed Education City and have been frequently on TTRS which we are really pleased with! Keep this up! Thank you as well for all the emails we are receiving, we really do enjoy reading about what you have been getting up to whether that’s completing home learning tasks, helping make dinner or photos of you enjoying yourselves. We really are missing being in class, so it makes our day when we receive an email telling us what you have been up to.
Each week we will set weekly tasks for the children which you will find on the Year 4 Home Learning, this will then link you to our new learning platform called Seesaw. Information about how to use the site and access codes will be sent via email.
Each week we will follow the White Rose scheme, the focus for this term will be on fractions, decimals, money, time and property of shape.
English tasks will be set each week for children to complete. These tasks will include either a writing, reading or a grammar task.
Please continue to read at least 3 times a week. On the Home Learning page, there are links to websites that you can access books if you have exhausted your collection at home.
Also, on our Millfields YouTube channel we will read a chapter from a book once or twice a week, currently our book is the Butterfly Lion.
Science this term will be Animals, including Humans, and Electricity.
This term we will use maps to locate countries, focusing on Europe. We will identify and describe geographical similarities and differences between the UK and Spain. During our art activities we will study Picasso and use his style to create our own artwork!
Each week we will be linking you to some websites to encourage you to complete some physical activity every day from Joe Wicks to Yoga!
Please email us with any questions, concerns or to share any learning or enjoyable activities your child has completed.
Stay safe and keep smiling,
Mrs Milner and Mrs Williams
