Remote Learning

It's a familiar situation for us all as we move back to remote learning for some pupils. We are so proud of all the wonderful work we have seen so far on Class Dojo. Please do upload anything you complete each day so that we can share your successes! We have loads of useful information on our Remote Learning page here and your child's class teacher is available every day during normal school hours to contact via Class Dojo messenger.

 

Week 1 - A huge well done to our pupils who beat their Times Tables Rockstars scores. You can complete TTRS activities at the start of every day from home. Just click here and log in using the details in your child's reading diary, or message your child's class teacher for a reminder.

Maths

Please help your child to learn their key facts at home for Maths. Practising times tables; written methods for addition and subtraction; multiplication and division revision; and covering year 3 fractions content that was missed last year will help your child to make excellent progress in their lessons.

 

PE

PE will be on a Tuesday - Please make sure school PE kit is worn to school on this day.

 

The Items children will need for PE lessons are black tracksuit bottoms and a regular PE T-shirt plus a jacket or school sweater would be suitable.

 

Homework

Homework will be handed out on a Friday over Class Dojo, and is due in the following Wednesday.

 

 

Reading Books 

Reading is a fundamental part of learning. Remember to read your book every day and have your diary signed by an adult. 

All books and diaries need to be in school on a Friday and this will earn each child a Dojo point for every day read. They can also change their book on this day.

 

History

We will be learning about the Ancient Romans - looking at their beliefs, geographical locations and their modern-day ancestors.

Geography

After the half-term break, we will be investigating Our Changing Planet, with lessons covering natural disasters, global warming and environmentally-friendly ways of living.

Science

We will be finding out all about sound, how it travels and the science behind it!

RE

We will be studying Judaism, with particular focus on affirmation.

Last Half Term

We had lots of fun exploring solids, liquids and gases in science

And also created our own water cycle poster presentations!

 

 

If you have any questions or queries regarding any school issues, please do not hesitate to let us know!

 

Kind Regards,

The Year 4 team at Fordbridge Primary.
