Year Four

Good Morning Year 4!

Welcome back after the Easter holidays. I hope that all of you are OK and ready for some new home learning?

Please remember to do what you can. We understand that you might have to share a computer with siblings and that you may not have a printer to print things out. If you are struggling let me know. You can message me on here and my email address is inside your home learning book so an adult can contact me this way.

I will post your daily and weekly tasks on Google Classroom. At first you might think it is a lot but when you complete each activity you will see that they are broken down into short chunks of learning.

Please use "My Learning Journey", (on Google Classroom) to record what you have done each day. Think of it as a daily blog of your learning. You can present it in any way. You might want to list which activities you have done and how you felt about it e.g. it was fun, too easy, too hard, too boring! You might choose to upload a photograph or a video of your work. I am sure you will have your own ideas too.

Daily Tasks Monday 20th April 2020

Task 1: Do something that makes you happy! Sing, dance, tell a joke, eat chocolate (if you have any Easter eggs left), draw, give someone a hug, whatever it is that makes you feel good.

Task 2: Do some form of physical activity. Go outside and play a game, do some keepy-ups, ride a bike, try an online video e.g. Joe Wicks, Cosmic yoga, or Oti Mabuse.

Dear Families,
 
We are all beginning to slowly adjust to our new routines and it is lovely to see families, communities and our country pulling together. Our school "family" is very important to all of us at Amble First and we know how vital it is to keep communicating with each other. One way of doing this is through Google Classroom. Google Classroom has been set up and it is great to see how many children have joined our Y4 page. We can safely message each other, share the learning tasks that we have completed already and in due course future learning tasks will be set.
Instructions for joining Google Classroom are on the School 360 homepage. 
If you have any questions or require any learning support my email address is on the inside cover of the learning pack that your child brought home.
 
Take Care

In Maths we follow the White Rose schemes of work which ensure our children have a well-rounded mastery approach to Maths.

Year 4 had an amazing time at Arbeia Roman Fort. We had so much fun exploring the Fort and searching for hidden artefacts in the archaeological dig.
Year 4 had a super morning at the Team building competition. Everyone showed respect, determination and skill. Well done Year 4!
