Yr 4 Mr Paine
As we move into the second part of the summer term, our learning will still be adapting and changing as the school begins the slow process of reopening to some children. Year 4 will still be learning from home for the time being. Our home learning looks a little different from before the half term break: we will have weekly packs for maths, writing and guided reading for the children to complete. There will still be a story chapter from our new class reader to enjoy and an arithmetic task to do each day.
We will keep to our curriculum aims as best as we can and our new topic is ‘Fun at the Fair’. Some of the learning we have planned below may be difficult to complete at home as much of it requires equipment and input from a teacher, but we will try our best. Fairs would not be able to operate without ‘electricity’ and so this science topic will play a big part in the summer term’s work. We would like to look at using coding to create a fairground game in computing, and designing and building a fairground ride for design and technology. In music, we plan to listen to and recreate fairground music. For geography, we will look at theme park maps, and how they are used to be both informative and exciting.
Please do continue to make reading a priority when you are at home. Try to read for at least 20 minutes a day and take the quizzes on Accelerated Reader. Also, make sure you eat well, do things to help your mental health, and take plenty of exercise.
