Home Learnig Support – Year 4
In t.he event of a school closure or self-isolation, we would like to support your children whilst they are working at home. If possible, try to encourage your child to spend time on a range of different activities covering the main priorities of maths, reading, SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar), writing and science.
We encourage children to try their best on as much of the work as they can manage. We are aware of how difficult this might be and have included more than is needed to provide children with choices on what interests them.
Work should be completed as much as possible in the PURPLE exercise book provided. If using a worksheet to complete work, please put the title of the sheet at the top of the page. If something can be completed on the sheet/booklet, please do to save paper.
Work that is included in the home learning packs are:
- Maths/English/Grammar – home learning packs,
- Reading comprehension sheets
- Comprehension Work
- Some examples of Science Experiments linking to our current topic of Sound.
Reading for pleasure is paramount! Time should be set aside for reading at length. If possible read together (with adults and to siblings if possible), asking questions, making predictions and discussing texts. We would be happy for children to also read books from home. Please record in the PURPLE exercise book given.
